Re: Repeating Issue

Brandon it is very nice to have feedback. While the problem may not be solved, at least we have knowledge someone is working on it and you have us enough of an outline so that we can understand a portion of the complexities you may face. (I am hoping [more]

Re: strange wifi behavior

Peter I was speaking of upload and download to the iPhone. That will be less, sometimes dramatically so, than to your PC.

Re: Repeating Issue

And the problem also happens with initial posts - as in the one above. Just for grins, I opened a new window and saw the post without doing the back and send a second time.

Repeating Issue

For the past several days, when ever I post a reply, the web page times out. Next I hit the Backup Key and hit "Send" again. Immediately I get the error message saying I am double clicking the send key.

Re: macbook air and old DVDs

Handbrake is considered to be the quality standard by the media Geeks in our local Mac group. I have never used it, but I have watched things being ripped at meetings. My recollection is that settings are saved, so the first DVD might be more [more]

Re: strange wifi behavior

Perhaps some of the issue is related to available band width. I use the SpeedTest.net app for my iOS devices.

In the event your iPhone for some reason has limited bandwidth, you might be able to [more]

Re: Rotted polybutelene piping

As you know there are two different products. The old, not so good product was polybutylene. The current, and very good to my knowledge, product is "PEX" which is cross linked polyethylene.

Re: sanders

I have had both orbital and sheet sanders over the years. My vote is for a sheet sander. In fact I actually did not attempt a simple repair on that orbital sander - I threw it away. (The orbital had a hook and loop pad to attach sanding disks that [more]

Re: Crashes....what's up?

First make sure you have the current Safari -- that would be 8.0.2 -- I doubt you have an earlier version, but it is a good check point.

Re: 12 years on, it's upgrade time ... I think

Kenny it is likely a typical PC user will have issues upgrading from Quicken 2003 to 2015. Not unlike an automobile driver who has exclusively used a 1955 Chevy would have issues update to a 2015 whatever.

Troy as I understand things the iPhone is not going to record any of your 9 places unless some uses location aware software. Further in Settings the location capable software must be "allowed" to turn on Location Services.
