RE: Old laptop working after 24+ hrs of fiddling

This is where a desktop PC would have an advantage for a longer lifespan as it's more readily upgrade-able. I have a 10-year old DELL Vostro biz desktop core i7 W10 still used as a daily PC. Have upgraded it with 2-SSDs, fast nVidia GeForce graphics card, USB-C/extra USB3 ports, Bluetooth 5.0, and Bluray writer. Basically, maxing out DELL's rather small standard 350-watt PS. Still cold boots into W10Pro in 15-secs. Can easily handle large Photoshop files, and multiple 2K/1080P HD video edit tracks in real-time. Only switch to a new DELL Alienware laptop if needing to work with 4K video files for real-time edits. Otherwise, the 10-year DELL works fine.

RE: What Would Happen If?

That's actually a good idea when receiving unsolicited mail. Send the return envelope back empty. Maybe with the message 'Karma'? The company is responsible for paying the return postage. Maybe if they get enough empty envelopes, they'll get the message?

RE: inDesign Publishing Program

Try this: How to import a pdf into indesign Tried this out just now, though used Adobe Acrobat Pro DC to convert a newsletter PDF to Word. Did a great job of quickly and accurately converting the PDF file to fully editable Word doc, while maintain its original formatting. Tried the same using MS Word 2019 alone, and it just froze. I then attempted to open the converted Word doc into InDesign CC 2022, and it could not maintain the full text in blocks, or keep any resemblance of the formatting. Basically, useless IMO.

RE: inDesign Publishing Program

I'll download a free trial version of InDesign and see if it works Be sure to track your free trial period carefully, and 'cancel' before you get charged the license fee. I once was taking a certification class at Adobe offices, and had to use the trial version of their app as I didn't have time to install from my full corporate Adobe CC license. I assumed after the trial period ended, I would be given the option to upgrade to full license which I would decline. I didn't realize that Adobe automatically charges your credit card after the trial period, even if you don't use it. I ended up having to run through hoops to get the charges removed, as I already had the full Adobe CC license at work.

RE: inDesign Publishing Program

Thanks for the reply's. Looks like toedtoes gave me a workaround . I'll download a free trial version of InDesign and see if it works As mentioned, it would be helpful to know what you are trying to do? In any case, when you 'Place' a PDF, it will convert to a graphic file. My assumption is you are going from one layout app with graphics/text to another layout app. Placing a PDF may severely limit what you are able to do if it's just a pure graphic file.

RE: Life membership does not appear

My guess is that forum portals are running on virtual servers, not dedicated. Though connected through a common database server. Which may explain why these files are located on different domains.

RE: Life membership does not appear

The lifetime member logo file is missing from RV.NET server? My guess is they moved them to a different location GoodSamClub.com server? Plus, RV.NET template is pointing to an insecure logo file, <img src="http://www.rv.net/images/forum/RVN_LifetimeLogo.gif" border="0" > which creates another browser error for mixed content. :S

RE: Life membership does not appear

GS IT must have moved the lifetime logo file, but did not update the template to correctly point to the new file location.

RE: Time for cat euthanasia

So sorry.. that must be hard. Some might suggest a .22 to the head, but I'm not sure that's something you'd consider. El Centro isn't far.. have you tried there? Unfortunately, that is what a co-worker of mine was forced to do. He took his cat to his longtime vet to euthanize as the cat had a tumor, and was obviously suffering. The vet required anyone requesting euthanasia to attend two separate (paid) grieving classes before they would agree to euthanize. You have to wonder why this vet didn't consider the well being of the pet first? Left my co-worker with few options remaining. Not to mention, creating an even more traumatic experience for its owner.

RE: Wifi options

Here's a member's forum post suggesting "We have Starlink and travel extensively with it...". It appears to violate Starlink's current TOS . . . I don't think so. According to the Starlink Reddit, people just change their Service Address and then move the dish. I doubt Starlink is going to allow changing service addresses to each campsite visited? More likely, they will realize its being used as a mobile dish, and discontinue service.

RE: Wifi options

Here's a member's forum post suggesting "We have Starlink and travel extensively with it...". It appears to violate Starlink's current TOS: "You acknowledge that you are only authorized to access Services at the location identified on your Order, and you will not divert the Starlink Kit or Services to any other locations,.." In which case, the risk would be Starlink could cancel your service.

RE: Musk Starlink now has a new problem

RE: Wifi options

If you're in MT and have little or no cell service, than you're only real option is satellite internet. Starlink would cover you except they are not allowing mobile use at this time. Only fixed location. Both Amazon and Boeing are working on implementing their own satellite internet services.

RE: Windows 11

Bill, if you are connecting to the Internet with WIN7, you're taking a risk of using any legacy OS with no security patching moving forward. Most all who caught the WannaCry crypto ransomeware got it from unpatched WIN 7 machines. Hope you're not accessing any financial accounts? Don't think anti-malware software can protect you. It just takes a cyber criminal to exploit a vulnerability in OS allowing elevated privileges to disable security on your system. They can then do pretty much anything they want.

RE: MODEM / ROUTER Question

As mentioned, you will need to set the SSID/Password to match your previous router. Many now come with some type of GUI app to make the process easier. I would make sure to change the router 'admin' password as soon as possible. Many routers have it printed on the bottom. Hackers use the fact that most don't change the default admin password to gain entry into your home network. Worst case to steal data or for nefarious purposes which can trace back to your IP address.

RE: Windows 11

BTW, when upgrading to a new OS, I always make a separate 'bare-metal' image as a secondary backup. WIN has it's own restore to previous versions built-in. Though if the restoration process fails, it's helpful to have a separate backup image.

RE: Windows 11

Recently purchased a new Dell Ultrabook for travel, which qualified for upgrade to WIN11. However, after some research, discovered that a primary media creation program I use is not yet fully compatible. So a no go, and will stick with WIN10 for now.

RE: Laptop Google issue??

This is not the usual method for a user to uninstall an app in WIN10? You can remove most any app using force uninstall. You can also create more problems if not careful. Though not many users are going to use command-line or feel comfortable to doing so? Simply don't use EDGE if you have issues with it for any reason.
