Originally, I thought the system was having problems or down, as I said in a message on Saturday, but now I think that it may be that the service has been discontinued. It may be necessary to find another source of information. Did you look at the web site I gave? Since this information is publicly available and not proprietary, I still wonder if there is a problem with the system because I don't know of a reason why the information would be made unavailable on the site used by assistants. But for now, finding another source may be the only solution.

They are still not giving college scores from last week. Note Echo is doing better than google. Google just said I do not under stand. She is pretty stupid lately; she does not understand a lot of things these days. But they will not give scores, only where the game is going to be played and the time; what gives? I still have a theory that the college league had something to do with this. It worked just fine beforeOctober. The NFL did not have any issues yesterday with giving scores. Cheers Heather

That's what keeps you young dear sis! The tsunami did spring up, and we're
now 5&0 in the positive win column.

I had thought that the 49ers would smoke the Dolphins for lunch; hmm, the
Dolphins had their masks on and were pretty good at countingout the numbers.


It's Broncos tomorrow at 3:00 P.M. MT; we'll be in Foxborough, yikes, the
Broncos are on a permanent vacation at least this year.

The Eye Note sounds interesting; perhaps some sweet day, it will be ported
over to Android. Hopefully, it won't cost two arms, five toes and a few
bone shanks; else, its kite won't fly in Androidville!

We can take a breather next week, as the hawks have a by week.

BTW: There is a very good bill identifier for iOS. It is called Eye Note. Even tells you if it is the front or back of the bill.

Sis Holly, I've had NO PROBLEMS getting real NFL game scores throughout this
day. All My Shiny Android toys announced game scores when asked in their
clear British-accented voice. Right now, I am pinned knee deep to the Sea
Hawks. It's proving to be a hard one, but there will be a tsunami and we'll
knock off the Vikings!!

Re: accessible disk imaging software.

Austin,

What I've done with Image for windows for years is have an old spare hard drive with a bootable operating system and image for windows installed on it. I thin boot from that spare drive and use a USB to SATA adapter to connect to original drive in the unit you want to restore to. I've done this dozens of times over the years with no problem

No, not a disk. An audio tutorial of how to make a disk is what I
will make. You have to make it yourself because it's a very localized thing.

Siri is not announcing the scores either. I just asked her what the score
was in the Raiders/Kansas city game, and she just said the time the game
started.

Before today, she would always tell the current score.

Yes, she did. I hadn't checked for a while, but she used to
tell scores. She did bring up the net for Texas University
for me.

Re: Headphones Do not Enable When using Multipurpose Jack

Carolyn Arnold
 

That happened to my 12-year-old Bose speakers, which I gave
to Jim, replaced with Logitech and connected again. For
years mine worked, but it quit, and that is frustrating to
have a headset connected, yet the sound blares out of the
speakers.

Subject: [TechTalk] Headphones Do not Enable When using
Multipurpose Jack

This laptop I have is equipped with one of those jacks that
are supposed to include both a headphone and microphone
component in one jack.
However, when I plug in a set of headphones, they do not
enable; instead, sound still comes from the laptop speaker.
I unticked the box that says, allow devices to take
exclusive control over this device, box in properties.
Unplugged and replugged the headphones.
No luck.
I disabled sound enhancements--although that likely wasn't
the cause.
No luck of course.
Realtek Drivers are updated.
Nothing.
Is there a fix for this?
