Re: UPS supply: How do they work and why are they needed?

I have them in the house for pure power and power outages.
Just Google Uninterruptible power supplies. All the answers are there. But you already got your answers anyway.

Re: eBike users

No problem in my area. I am only concerned about distance. I have never seen or heard of any issues on the rail trails in my area concerning eBikes. I belong to about four different rail trail forums in Western Mass. My city police department ha bicycles with officers that can use them and a motoriz...

Re: Bluetooth hearing aids

Yes, I agree. They are great. Love the App.
I have to remember my Bluetooth adapter in the car captures my iPhone GPS when traveling if the radio is off. It is one or the other.

Re: New Smartphone

I have been using a iPhone SE since it came out. At 77 it is ok for me.
I also have an sixth generation iPad for reading books since I can adjust the font size and keep many books on hand.
I keep a PC with W10 just for these two.

Re: eBike users

I posted about a year or two ago. Upgraded to a new bike. At over seventy seven and arthritis in both knees I now use a modified 27.5 inch modified KHS 200 bicycle with a 48 volt 750 watt Luna mid motor and 14.5 amp battery. Capable of 52 volt also. Motor and controller mounted near pedal assembly. ...

Re: Linux (and Mint) contribute to my anger levels

I have been running Linux since 2003. No problems. Right now I run a laptop with W10. Much too difficult to dual boot with Linux. I tried. I refuse to spend hours maybe days on the forums trying to figure it out. It use to be easy before W10. I also run Mint on an older Acer laptop quite well. Not s...

On my PC, sometimes I use Google search or Dogpile. They both have different results at times.
On my iPhone and iPad I use Firefox Focus.

Re: Be more active in life..not just computer science

I forgot to mention. I retired in 2006 and live on a pension. It works. In the US, it is call SS check. It is enough. I work out and stay healthy even at over seventy seven.

Re: Bluetooth hearing aids

The devices are called, RE Sound Smart Hearing Aids. No doubt pricey. Still not as good as natural hearing but that is life.
I am a US veteran so it cost me fifty dollars including the hearing test.

Re: Be more active in life..not just computer science

I agree. A computer is just a tool. It does not need a pretty desktop. At 77, I still date, ride a bike maybe 2500 km a year. Dance two or three nights a week. We have rail trails in our part of the USA, actually a lot of the US. I try to keep our city clerk aware of any issues. Four years in the US...

Re: Win10 over-rode my settings to prevent Updates

That was another reason why I left a new HP laptop with W10 on it alone and kept an Acer with Mint. Lot less troubles.
I use to dual boot with Windows up until W8 before but no more.
I only dual or triple boot on the Acer with Linux.
I need a good W10 PC for my iPhone and iPad and Apple music.

Local Blues music. My hearing aids have bluetooth and my iPhone has the music. Anywhere, anytime. Nice. Sometimes at a dance with a band during intermission and no music, I put one hearing aid in my dance partner and the other in my ear and we do a dance. Amazes everyone since they cannot hear the m...
