I have heard of people whose cats learn how to keep the bells from ringing. Pam.

I knew a woman, who fixed two little bells on her kitten's collar. I am sure that the kitten was not happy about them for a while, but she could keep up with him that way. She said one bell would not work; it needed to be two.

Hello,

I'm throwing this out to a bunch of lists. I got a friend who just got

does have a collar with a bell on that's it. I'm wondering if anyone

How do I mark messages as spam on the gmail site? I only know how to do it in thunderbird.

James,

           If there are things that are "in common enough to easily identify as a group" among these messages, and you're using the Gmail web interface, you could have a look at this tutorial I wrote a while back that, while having mass delete as its focus, can be used in the same manner for other reasons:

I have been going to the unsubscribe link in some email.  That turned out to be a nightmare.  I unsubscribe from one email list and get subscribed to 2 or more new list that I have never heard of before.  So, thanks for your suggestion.  Its not the fastist method in the short term but maybe it does save time and frustration in the long term.

 

Wish I could push a button and get rid of all of the bad actors in the world. *smile.

 

Stay safe,

Hi Brian,

 

Do I mark it as spam with my email client “Outlook” or do I have to go to the Gmail wevb site and mark it as spam there?

Gmail has some of the best spam filtering out there.  If this stuff is landing in your inbox you should mark it as spam and it won't continue doing so for very long, as Google updates its filters based upon what end users mark as spam.

And although it's too late for you, this is a general rule:  NEVER, EVER, EVER use an unsubscribe link in spam e-mail.  It is only there so that the spammer can confirm that the e-mail address is active and being monitored by a human being.  That makes the address more valuable for resale.

Thanks Brian. As I said I know clicking on the unsubscribe links was a mistake, I did it in a moment of frustration because although all of the spam was going to my spam folder in thunderbird I was getting a ton of it so I figured it was worth a try. I will try your suggestion of marking stuff as spam that I don't want from now on and maybe I'll start getting less of the messages trying to get me to buy insurance and sign up for college classes at least.

Hi all,

A few days ago I decided to try to get rid of some of the spam mail I've been receiving by hitting the unsubscribe link in a few of the e-mails, yeah I know now that was a bad idea. Anyway since then I've been getting a ton of bounced e-mails, a lot more than I sent out trying to unsubscribe, and they're all coming to my inbox.

On top of that I've been receiving messages from insurance companies trying to sell me insurance and I'm not looking for insurance of any kind and haven't contacted these companies in any way, and I'm getting other e-mails that seem to be in a mixture of English and another language and from what I can tell they're trying to get me to sign up for college classes. Aside from changing my address is there anything I can do? I'd like to be able to contact someone at google to see if they can help me since gmail is associated with google but I haven't been able to find any contact info. Is this just a gmail thing and the longer a single gmail address is used the more this kind of thing may happen?

I doubt there's anything I can do but I just thought I'd ask, thanks in advance for any ideas.

Troy

We have two kittens and it takes two types of bells.  One wears some very delicate metallic high pitched bells and the other wears some lower plasticky sounding bells.  I can call them by name and don't step on them very much.

Hi all,

Glad you found Kitty! I wondered if she'd gotten lost in the house. I've never heard of those tracking thingers that were mentioned, but it may work. I'd check with the vet first to see if it would damage the kitty's hearing, though. So glad all is well. Doncha just hate it when you've been frantic, half out of your mind worried about a lost cat and it turns up neat as you please? "Oh, were you looking for me?" <grrrr>

While the sound card is connected, do the following:

Open the run dialog.

Hold the Windows key and type r.

Then type sndvol and type enter.

The volume control will open.

You will be on a slider to change the volume.

Experiment with the left and right arrow keys to see which one lowers
the volume and which one raises it. You would want to have something
playing like a song, so you can hear the changes.


Set the volume as you want, then close the dialog with alt f4. There is
no o.k. button and changes take immediate effect so you can hear the
volume change as you use the left and right arrow keys to change it.

rules? Couldn't he have explained what Famus did and why it was wrong?
It sounds like he wasn't being disruptive but simply trying to
understand why he was being admonished. Dropping somebody after the
person asks one question is bullying behavior, IMO. I am sorry that
the blindness community has an individual who exhibits such churlishness.

If 'twere me, I'd write the owner privately and see if things could be
straightened out. But, then again, I'm an old, tough skinned, grumpy

The volume control will open.

You will be on a slider to change the volume.

Experiment with the left and right arrow keys to see which one lowers the volume and which one raises it.  You would want to have something playing like a song, so you can hear the changes.


Set the volume as you want, then close the dialog with alt f4. There is no o.k.  button and changes take immediate effect so you can hear the volume change as you use the left and right arrow keys to change it.

Hello list
So then, let me ask my question here about which I was banned from the other
list. I have my system volume go to a speaker connected to my pc's line out
and the JAWS speech goes to a USB TurtleBeach sound card. The speaker
connected to the TurtleBeach is at full volume but I want it a bit louder,
so is there a setting in JAWS or in pc settings where I can raise the USB
sound card volume?

Yes, so am I! That was patently unfair of him to just drop him and not even explain why, or try to straighten it out. I'm glad I'm not on that list! Pam.

Hi all,

I'm afraid that I'm more concerned that there is a listowner who,
instead of answering Famus' question, dropped him from the list. That
seems to be rather churlish behavior. Couldn't he have sent the list
rules? Couldn't he have explained what Famus did and why it was wrong?
It sounds like he wasn't being disruptive but simply trying to
understand why he was being admonished. Dropping somebody after the
person asks one question is bullying behavior, IMO. I am sorry that
the blindness community has an individual who exhibits such churlishness.

If 'twere me, I'd write the owner privately and see if things could be
straightened out. But, then again, I'm an old, tough skinned, grumpy
curmudgeon who's used to dealing with bullies.

Sorry, Famus, unfortunately, life is often unfair. It just is what it
is. Have a great day and stay safe!

Ann P.

Re: JAWS volume problem

Thom Spittle
 

Open your windows run dialog box with windows are. Type in SNDVOL which is short for sound volume. Once in there, tab through and you may see places to change the volume for different applications. Hope this helps
