Re: Google is the Devil

The advantage of web mail is you can read it from any computer anywhere. The disadvantage is you do not have a copy on your own computer for later reference. You can save the list of e-mails to your computer from web mail, but not many people bother. Of course, most e-mail is not important enough to...

Re: Old and Helpless

Even if I could afford to buy a new fancy car, I couldn't afford the insurance or upkeep on it.

Look at how much it costs to have an alternator replaced on a Mercedes compared to a Ford or Chevy, hi hi.

Re: Noodle Making

I started out at either 10 or 20 cents per click with a limit of 10 per day, because I didn't know if I would get swamped with clicks. To keep someone from burning up your bank account, they only limit an IP address to ONE Click. Well, they can click as many times as they want, but I'm only charged ...

Re: TinyPics Demise

Not to be phunny about it, but I loved the way USENET worked. If someone started a topic, all responses directly to that topic were under it, in order, and indented one space. If someone commented to a comment, it too got indented yet another space, and was in order. While on most other places, when...

Re: Way To Go - Finally

Well, I'm glad to hear you are making some headway, even if not in the manner you want it to be. I did learn one thing myself, I cannot install the version of Linux Mint I have on a UEFI only computer. Namely the new computer I bought for Debi with Win10 on it. It does not have BIOS either. Although...

Re: Apex Pro

Aha, I see your dilemma with trying to merge databases created at different times. It was easy to update the mail merge document since it was in plain text. Even so, it was still tricky to use, because some people have 2-line addresses, and some have 3-line addresses. And if I recall I had a couple ...

Re: Google is the Devil

OK, I think I will just keep my e-mail as @comcast.net since I have no other cable choice here. I used Ymail for one of my e-mail addresses, but not for professional or business e-mails. Although my utilities, like water, electric, sewer, are all handled by KUB (Knoxville Utility Board). LCUB (Lenoi...

Re: Old and Helpless

In MO, if you are in an accident, your insurance company obtains a copy of the police report and files with the state if necessary. At least 15 years ago when I lived there. Don't know what they do now, but I doubt it changed. If one of the drivers was not insured, then it is mandatory you report th...

Re: TinyPics Demise

About the only thing I do on Farcebook is click LIKE on a few relatives posts. On my business account, all I do is click like on books placed in groups my promoter has running. This in turn makes members of the group click on mine. One thing I do not normally do is click LIKE on groups or pages, eve...

Re: Noodle Making

When I used paid advertising for my AZ-NO3 product, I did so in reef aquarium magazines, and also on a couple of reef websites. But what really boosted sales in those early days was a totally free article written by one of the editors of a major magazine. He liked the product! As far as my book sale...

Whenever my boot sector gets messed up I simply use a Boot Repair Disk I keep in my fixit stack of CDs.
It usually fixes whatever went wrong.

Re: Way To Go - Finally

If I had the time, I would try it to see what the hangup is. Since you can install a Live OS on a Stick and have it work on any computer. I'm wondering if the install is rewriting that boot area and that is what is messing things up. I'm going to ask a dumb question here. Are you sure the USB stick ...

Re: Apex Pro

I wouldn't exactly call it a Database, but when I was doing businesses that required I mail out notices to everyone, using msWord, I had files of peoples names and addresses. It worked with msWord to add their name to the letter, and it also printed out the envelopes. It was basically just another d...

Re: Old and Helpless

If your insurance company totals your car, you can usually buy it back from them as scrap for about 1/3 of what they paid you for it. In many cases, if you like a car and get it repaired cheaply enough on your own, it's a better deal since you know everything about the car. I was charged with hittin...

Re: Google is the Devil

That's what I figured, but from what I understand, not all hosting services for websites also have e-mail.
This is why I'm hesitant on changing my e-mail from Comcast to my domain name and using my hosts e-mail service.
What if I want to change hosts and they don't provide e-mail?

Re: Noodle Making

Same here, when I find a food product I like, I normally only buy that particular product. I also have several products that although OK, I don't like them as well as others, so avoid buying them. I honestly believe that advertising really does not help all that much for most things. You do have to ...

Other than Family and Relatives, about the only people I have on Farcebook are those who play Farm Town. I think I only have about 400 followers. Now under my pen name, I have thousands of followers, but try to keep them cut as short as possible. On Twitter for example, I remove around 30 to 50 per ...

I do know one of the kids at the Library had Linux Mint 17, and I think another had Linux Mint 18, but none had higher than that, and most had Ubuntu, but I don't know what version. Maybe the newest ones are not stable enough yet? I think the purpose of making a bootable LIVE USB stick first is to g...

Re: Apex Pro

In my case, especially with Family Tree Maker, I could not afford their upgrades any longer, so kept using the latest version I had upgraded to. I did upgrade from FTM to FTW and even upgraded FTW a few times, they still use FTW but cannot read older FTW files. At least I was able to export the old ...

Re: Google is the Devil

Oh, I didn't want to have my e-mail on one host, and my website on another host. I have my e-mail on my ISP, and my website is hosted by someone else. My concern was, if I set up e-mails on the Host, and decided to change to another Host, my e-mails will have my domain name. If I move my domain and ...
