Lexophilia

Lexophile is a word used to describe those that have a love for words, such as "you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish", or "to write with a broken pencil is pointless." A competition to see who can come up with the best [more]

Re: Laptop repair question

Mike / Peter, appreciate the comments.

I've passed on to my friend what you said. I think he's going to try to get it fixed.

In this situation, the cost is not an issue. He is literally an "old geezer" who does not want to [more]

Laptop repair question

Anyone here have any experience with Computer Renaissance repair shops - especially the one in Tucson, AZ?

Re: Printer problem

The first thing I would try is working with the wifi router to make sure the printer always has the same IP address.

The IP address is always the same - I set that up shortly after I installed the printer. In fact, dealing with this [more]

Re: Printer problem

Thanks TK -

I dug into that sleep mode thing - it appears that there is no way to turn it off! I did change it from a 5 minute delay to a 15 minute delay but that doesn't really fix anything.

Did a bunch of googling around - [more]

Printer problem

I recently purchased and installed a new printer - an HP Officejet Pro 8610. This is a wireless model and it's set up that way - connects through my router's wi-fi hotspot.

It seems to work ok with one MAJOR exception: if it hasn't been used [more]

Re: Printer problem

It could be time for a new printer. It's not worth messing with old ones. They are disposable.

That's exactly the conclusion I finally came to.

I looked into buying a new printhead - it would have cost about $60 to $70. Then [more]

Re: Printer problem

Well, did some Googling around - found some stuff about "cleaning the printhead". I did that (and I now have some permanent stains on my fingers). That seemed to help - the black ink is printing now.

During all this, there were [more]

Printer problem

My HP OfficeJet 6500A Plus printer is not printing any black - the colors are printing just fine.

It popped up a warning a couple of days ago that I should get a new black cartridge but it printed ok. The next day it printed something that [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

On your PC you would open gmail and on the left side, top, right under "Google" you see "gmail" with a little down-arrow. Click that, select "contacts".

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

If it's Android, and you're not using a special app, then your contacts list is within gmail.

Yes, they're both Android phones and there's no special app involved.

Do you know if it's possible to actually see the contacts [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

Or is it possible to export the contacts to my own computer some way? And then to import them to the new phone.

Well, I may have figured this one out. I found an option on the old phone to export the contacts to the SD card (as a [more]

Re: Questions regarding a phone upgrade

As to the contact list:

I have them backed up using Backup Assistant Plus on the old phone. Where does this actually store them? Is it possible to get them from there on to the new phone?

Questions regarding a phone upgrade

In the next few days, I'm going to be upgrading to a new phone. The current one is a Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2; the new one will be a Galaxy S4. (If it matters, the provider is Verizon.)

I'm not too concerned about getting the new phone [more]

Re: How will the market react?

Well, I see this morning that the market futures are up about .5%.

My personal thoughts on this question are that the market will react favorably to republican control of the senate. And, FWIW, CNN's pre-market comments this morning included [more]

How will the market react?

If the republicans take control of the senate, what will the effect be on the market in the near futhure? Or, will it have any effect?

Note, the is NOT a political question. It is a METAR question.
