Hi George,
 
I know you can move the Dropbox from its default location and put it elsewhere, but how do you keep it in its default location and only have the storage located somewhere else?  This would be handy.  Thanks much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Leave the dropbox program on the solid state drive but point it to the
4tb drive for storage. Let us know if you need instructions on how to
do it.

Hello,

I need a recommendation for a phone, not smart, to be used on a CDMA carrier. If it has speech, great, but I can work without it if I have to.

Thanks very much for your help.

Re: phone to use with cdma

I can't be sure if you can get a GSMA version.  Here is an excerpt from a page showing specifications:
CDMA  800 / 850 / 1900
GSM  850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
I don't know enough technically about phone networks to know.  Even though it gives those numbers and shows GSMA before them, in looking at the excerpts of many pages in a Google search, I don't see GSMA carriers listed in those stated it can be used with.

I just checked and AT&T isn't a CDMA Network.  But I'll  check if my phone comes in both GSM and CDMA models.

Re: Need Ideas for Bluetooth Speaker

Blackwell, Clifford
 

Th oontz speakers are fairly good, though the less expensive ones lack bass to the point that they don't sound very good.

You might look at the Tribit line of speakers. They have nice sound and are pretty easy to set up and use. I don't think they come with a power wart though.

Here's a link to the Amazon page that has them.

Hi, all.


I'm looking for a small, inexpensive good-sounding Bluetooth speaker with some bass and volume that is easy for someone with no vision to operate.  I have a Jam Box mini, and while I like the sound, it's not loud enough for me to use it for YouTube or Netflix watching with my iPhone SE.  I'm looking at the OontZ Angle 3 (3rd Gen) - Bluetooth Portable Speaker on Amazon.  This thing is under $30 and has over 47 thousand reviews with a score of  4.4.  I know Amazon has gotten static for allowing false reviews, but if anyone has used this speaker, I'd be interested in your thoughts because it seems to have everything I need.

Re: having a weird issue

Gerald Levy
 


Okay, gang.  Here's what GHacks Technology News has to say about the broken Windows 10 search box issue that users on this and other lists have been reporting:

Need another reason that current web search integration is bad in Windows 10?

‎Today, ‎February ‎05, ‎2020, ‏‎6 hours ago | Martin BrinkmannGo to full article

Reports are coming in that search is not working properly on many Windows 10 devices; the issue is different from the recent File Explorer search issue that users experienced and are still experiencing to a degree.

Basically, what is happening currently is that the search interface is entirely black and that searches don't work at all on affected systems. The problem, it appears, is not caused by users or administrators, but by Microsoft.

Microsoft made the decision to interweave Cortana, the digital assistant, and search when it released the operating system. While Cortana and Search have been untangled, Microsoft decided to integrate and improve web search functionality in recent versions.

Search in Windows 10 returns offline and online content by default. Local search works pretty much like it did back in Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, online search displays suggestions for the most part.

Microsoft may change search functionality remotely on Windows 10 machines, e.g. to adjust settings or other parameters without having to release a Windows update that does that. That's useful in theory, but not so much if remote issues cause search to stop working at all.

One would think that local search would continue to work if Windows 10 could not connect to remote servers or if some other form of remote connection does not work as expected; this is apparently not the case.

Affected users may want to use third-party search applications such as Everything or one of these desktop search programs to restore search functionality.

Windows Latest suggests that disabling Web Search on affected Windows 10 systems and rebooting the system restores search functionality as well on affected devices.

windows
          10 web search

Here is how you do that:

  1. Use Windows-R to display the run box.
  2. Type regedit.exe and hit the Enter-key to start the Registry Editor.
  3. Confirm the UAC prompt.
  4. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
  5. Locate BingSearchEnabled.
    1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Search in the tree hierarchy of the left sidebar and select New > Dword (32-bit) Value. Name it BingSearchEnabled.
  6. Change the data value of BingSearchEnabled to 0.
  7. Locate CortanaConsent.
  8. Double-click on the value and set it to 0.
  9. Restart the PC.

The change worked on one test PC that was affected by the issue.

The issue is not the first search issue of Windows 10. Microsoft broke search in 2017 in the operating system and Windows 10 version 1903 had several search bugs as well.

Hi all. This is a Microsoft issue, and is related to the Bing search

RECOMMENDATIONS for annimated greeting card website, anyone?

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

My nephew donated a kidney to his dad, my brother yesterday. So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a clean, accessible site where I can get funny animated greeting cards, including a get-well category? I've thought of Blindfold Greeting Cards, but I'd like to be able to share the kinds that are visually appealing.

Thanks, for any input,

Re: baseball's game day audio

Karim Lakhani
 

Hi,
I tried the at bat app. in my opinion it's easier then the web version.
from what I can tell, one year audio will be 27.00, so for Canadians it will depend on the conversion how much it will be.
Looking forward to it, it helps getting rid of the winter blues.
have a nice day.

hi troy:

I had to do this just a few weeks ago.

you must go into your account and you must go to the add new credit card
link and treat it as if you are adding a new credit card.

my card's expiration date had changed, so, as in the past, I thought you
could just change the expiration date.

now, that is no longer possible.

then, after you do this, you can delete your old credit card info.

it will know for sure this march if I can still get gameday audio for the
coming season, since my account is set up for automatic renewal.

Re: Drop box.

Gene
 

That's an interesting question and I'm not sure what you should do.  the Dropbox program monitors the folder in a certain place on a certain drive.  If you open the program and it doesn't see a folder where it looks, I don't know if it will create one and download all the files to it, or if it will delete the folders and files you currently have in the online storage. 
 
We'll see what others say.  I may write more later, depending on what others say.
