Portable YouTube to Mp3 Converter does it still work?

Naima Leigh
 

Carlos I downloaded it again and now it’s telling me that I can’t open the file because it was deleated. Does that have anything to do with my anti-virus too?

 

Are you shure it still works? Do you have another way I could get it?

 

Thanks

 

Naima

yes, so the direct implant into the visual cortex would be the only way for you, unless successfu nerve regeneration can be accomplished. that is such a tricky thing though and most especially in the optic nerve. other nerve regeneration can happen on its own in some cases, but the results are not always optimal.

In my particular case, Retinoblastoma meant that my optic nerve had to be removed.  So I have strong interest in any techniques which could potentially either completely bypass or theoretically regenerate the optic nerve.

quite often people with RP have good optic nerves just the retina is damaged. I was told last time I was checked that the nerve is good and pink and healthy.

Nerve regeneration is tricky stuff.  And even if they manage to work out the details, it won't necessarily work for everyone.  I think a device which can bypass the optic nerve altogether and directly stimulate the visual cortex is likely to work in more cases and will probably overall be easier to perfect in a semi-reasonable amount of time.

I think the research is great, however I personally can’t imagine going through eye surgery with the results it is providing. After all, what real value is there in seeing colors, lines or spots of light. But it is encouraging that there are any results. since I have RP, my optic nerves are just fine but they get no information's because the photo receptor cells are almost totally destroyed now. I still have some slight hopes for the stem cell research.

Ya know I read an article awhile back where they were experimenting with using nerves in the tongue for sight, & were having limited success.  I can't find the article right now but, what I don't recall is how they were doing this.  I don't know if they were bypassing the optic nerve, using bionics or what but, it was pretty interesting.  Can you imagine it, someone walking around, flicking their tongue out & about, like a hungry frog / lizard but, able to navigate because their eyes had been replaced by a flicking tongue?!

Hi there!

What I have heard is that it would be tricky if not imposible to transplant the optic nerve since it is actually connected to the brain if I understand correctly.  BTW, I would be very interested in an optic nerve transplant if it ever becomes possible! I do however wonder why they can't simply place stem cells that could reproduce and perhaps repair the damage in the nerve.  I still suspect this would be a very tricky operation though.   

I guess it never hurts to dream a little or maybe a lot! THANKS&Have A Good 1! de

I sure wish they would come out with some sort of optic nerve replacement.  You would think that being nerves run off of eletrical stimulus that a small battery pack could be implanted to give the nerves the necessary power to operate.  But, I would assume that getting the correct ohms / current would be really hard to duplicate.

I'm not sure what could be causing the problem, but in the second case it sounds as if your antivirus software may be falsely flagging the executable as dangerous and removing it.  If so, you will have to figure out how to create an exception so that your antivirus scanner will allow it to run.  The procedure is specific to the antivirus software so I'm afraid I can't really help much.

Ya know I read an article awhile back where they were experimenting with using nerves in the tongue for sight, & were having limited success.  I can't find the article right now but, what I don't recall is how they were doing this.  I don't know if they were bypassing the optic nerve, using bionics or what but, it was pretty interesting.  Can you imagine it, someone walking around, flicking their tongue out & about, like a hungry frog / lizard but, able to navigate because their eyes had been replaced by a flicking tongue?!

Indeed, but again the article discusses one device which bypasses the optic nerve altogether and directly stimulates the visual cortex.  LOL I think the notion that an optic nerve is required to provide artificial sight is somewhat outdated now since this is the second article I have read which discusses such technology.  Of course it hasn't been perfected, but successful tests with early designs indicates that the technology will almost certainly be workable as it advances.

Hi there!

What I have heard is that it would be tricky if not imposible to transplant the optic nerve since it is actually connected to the brain if I understand correctly.  BTW, I would be very interested in an optic nerve transplant if it ever becomes possible! I do however wonder why they can't simply place stem cells that could reproduce and perhaps repair the damage in the nerve.  I still suspect this would be a very tricky operation though.   

I guess it never hurts to dream a little or maybe a lot! THANKS&Have A Good 1! de

I sure wish they would come out with some sort of optic nerve replacement.  You would think that being nerves run off of eletrical stimulus that a small battery pack could be implanted to give the nerves the necessary power to operate.  But, I would assume that getting the correct ohms / current would be really hard to duplicate.

Nerve regeneration is tricky stuff.  And even if they manage to work out the details, it won't necessarily work for everyone.  I think a device which can bypass the optic nerve altogether and directly stimulate the visual cortex is likely to work in more cases and will probably overall be easier to perfect in a semi-reasonable amount of time.

I think the research is great, however I personally can’t imagine going through eye surgery with the results it is providing. After all, what real value is there in seeing colors, lines or spots of light. But it is encouraging that there are any results. since I have RP, my optic nerves are just fine but they get no information's because the photo receptor cells are almost totally destroyed now. I still have some slight hopes for the stem cell research.

Dear Mike and friends, Great article about Curing Blindness here on BARD September 2016 issue of National Geographic

Alan Dicey
 

Dear Mike, and friends
I do not know if you use BARD, but there is a 51 minute audio article about the artificial eye, stem cell research, and the whole list of ways of finding a cure to end Blindness in this September 2016 issue of National Geographic magazine on BARD.
Including the fact a gentleman will give 3 million in Gold to whoever finds a cure by 2020.
They have all the past issues available, just look for September 2016.

So true, Carlos, because in so many cases, length of time of
blindness is destructive to the optic nerve anyway. So, if
it could be bypassed, many more of us could be helped.

Indeed, but again the article discusses one device which bypasses the optic nerve altogether and directly stimulates the visual cortex.  LOL I think the notion that an optic nerve is required to provide artificial sight is somewhat outdated now since this is the second article I have read which discusses such technology.  Of course it hasn't been perfected, but successful tests with early designs indicates that the technology will almost certainly be workable as it advances.

Hi there!

What I have heard is that it would be tricky if not imposible to transplant the optic nerve since it is actually connected to the brain if I understand correctly.  BTW, I would be very interested in an optic nerve transplant if it ever becomes possible! I do however wonder why they can't simply place stem cells that could reproduce and perhaps repair the damage in the nerve.  I still suspect this would be a very tricky operation though.   

I guess it never hurts to dream a little or maybe a lot! THANKS&Have A Good 1! de

I sure wish they would come out with some sort of optic nerve replacement.  You would think that being nerves run off of eletrical stimulus that a small battery pack could be implanted to give the nerves the necessary power to operate.  But, I would assume that getting the correct ohms / current would be really hard to duplicate.

I too have RP and believe it is the stem cell that is going to restore us if anything. if this sort of thing gets better I’m sure a lot of people will go for it.
seems I remember $73,000 was a price tag for the surgery? or was that just for the item?

I think the research is great, however I personally can’t imagine going through eye surgery with the results it is providing. After all, what real value is there in seeing colors, lines or spots of light. But it is encouraging that there are any results. since I have RP, my optic nerves are just fine but they get no information's because the photo receptor cells are almost totally destroyed now. I still have some slight hopes for the stem cell research.

LOL I think I would rather wait for science to perfect the device that directly stimulates the visual cortex.  Not only is it more likely to provide true sight, but it just sounds cooler.

Ya know I read an article awhile back where they were experimenting with using nerves in the tongue for sight, & were having limited success.  I can't find the article right now but, what I don't recall is how they were doing this.  I don't know if they were bypassing the optic nerve, using bionics or what but, it was pretty interesting.  Can you imagine it, someone walking around, flicking their tongue out & about, like a hungry frog / lizard but, able to navigate because their eyes had been replaced by a flicking tongue?!

Re: spotify?

Gene
 

I don't know the procedure for storing music.  I read about the difference in quality between the free and paid version but I don't recall.  Also, the sound quality may not be the same when using the Internet site to play audio as the downloadable player.  I've seen comments that it isn't as good.

I believe that if you purchase scripts for the installed desktop program, you must have a paid account.  I should also say that I know there used to be scripts.  I don't know if they work with the newer interface Spotify introduced perhaps six months ago or perhaps somewhat longer ago.  If you can get scripts that work with the older interface, you may still be able to use an older version of the program. 
 
There is no legal way to copy spotify music for private use.  If you have a paid account, you can legally store spotify music and listen to it while off line.  No music service would be expected to allow copying of material.

Re: a three part question, please help

When you arrow down and it reads the header, it will also say "attachment" to let you know there is an attachment. The only problem is, some email programs, or antivirus programs, I'm not sure which, give you the false idea that there is an attachment when there is not. But you get to know that after a while.

Naima and others, the cut and paste method for E-mail attachments does
work for Outlook. I have the 2007 version, but try it out in whatever
flavor of Outlook you have. You don't have to be at the beginning of
the E-mail text to paste; you can do so at the very end and it will
attach OK.
It's what I use and it works!
