  1. WHO are you trying to secure your Internet traffic/transactions from? A VPN can encapsulate and hide your Internet traffic between you and the VPN endpoint. And how well do you trust the endpoint, the company that operates the VPN, the people working at that company, the 3rd-party service they contract with, the government(s) they reside in? I can understand why the coworker gave you a funny look.
  2. I would have thought, living in Thailand, that you were used to going in circles. ;-)
  3. Probably a 3BB network cache issue, similar to True's transparent proxy, or one of 3BB's peers is caching data from major sites like Apple to save the overseas bandwidth..
  4. If you truly only use 1Kwh of 'Energy' in a day, then, according the the same Wikipedia page I posted from, that means: Wikipedia: Kilowatt hour EXAMPLES An electric heater rated at 1000 watts (1 kilowatt), operating for one hour uses one kilowatt-hour (equivalent to 3.6 megajoules) of energy. A television rated at 100 watts operating for 10 hours continuously uses one kilowatt-hour. A 40-watt light bulb operating continuously for 25 hours uses one kilowatt-hour. So, you're living off the equivalent of a 40-watt bulb? Or are you saying your solar system is providing supplemental energy, so your Government Electric Meter is only registering ~1Kwh of energy used per day?
  5. Create or use your Apple ID without a payment method Learn how you can create or use your Apple ID in the iTunes Store without a credit card or other payment method. tl:dr When you're asked for payment information, choose None. See what to do if None isn't showing or you can't select it.
  6. I had a photo voltaic instructor that would go off on anyone who would say KiloWatt/hour. Drove him absolutely nuts. Wikipedia: Misuse of watts per hour Power units measure the rate of energy per unit time. Many compound units for rates explicitly mention units of time, for example, miles per hour, kilometers per hour, dollars per hour. Kilowatt-hours are a product of power and time, not a rate of change of power with time. Watts per hour (W/h) is a unit of a change of power per hour. It might be used to characterize the ramp-up behavior of power plants. For example, a power plant that reaches a power output of 1 MW from 0 MW in 15 minutes has a ramp-up rate of 4 MW/h. Hydroelectric power plants have a very high ramp-up rate, which makes them particularly useful in peak load and emergency situations. The proper use of terms such as watts per hour is uncommon, whereas misuse may be widespread.
  7. Not sure if you'll be able target all in one search query, or eliminate forwards. Found this GOOGLE HELP page that might be of assistance: Search operators you can use with Gmail You can use words or symbols called search operators to filter your Gmail search results. You can also combine operators to filter your results even more. So if I was sticking strictly to using the gmail web interface I'd do this as a TWO STEP PROCESS Step 1. Use search queries to gather and mark all the emails meeting the requested criteria. Use the select all feature, and tag them using the gmail LABEL feature to add a unique label to them. Repeat the search query until you have all the emails meeting the requested criteria tagged with the unique additional LABEL. Step 2. This process may capture emails you believe don't meet the requested criteria. So in step two you create searches of the uniquely LABELed emails that allow you to find and eliminate those emails (remove the unique LABEL). You may find you'll need to review the final group and manually remove some that couldn't be uniquely searched and eliminated. ** Another option might be to enable IMAP support on the gmail account and use an "email client" application with better search capabilities (like MS Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird, etc, etc,) that might allow you to 'stack' multiple searches to gather them. Just note that gmail's LABEL functionality is a redesign of IMAP's Folder functionality, so using multiple gmail LABELs may create issues with IMAP folders if you are tagging emails with multiple gmail LABELS. But you may have more luck accomplishing your searches using an actual email client application rather than the gmail web interface.
  8. DID you read the EDIT section of my initial post to you. It had some instructions. From the YouTube video, it showed the user placing the keyboard into PAIR MODE (by press-holding the keyboard's Power Button until the LED's flashed) scanning for available bluetooth devices selecting the bluetooth keyboard as the available device being presented with a number and entering that on the keyboard and hitting ENTER (you won't see what's being typed) possibly having to repeat entering the number and hitting ENTER Once the keyboard and computer acknowledge the correct codes are being used only then will the keyboard become a keyboard for the computer. There may be OTHER YouTube videos out there on how to do this if the devices need to be paired, or even something on the ACER website about it.
  9. If your keyboard doesn't have a pre-designated code, then it either doesn't need a code, or the code is 0000. Can you use the onscreen keyboard at all? EDIT A youtube video shows someone making sure Bluetooth is enabled, having the PC search for devices, then Press & HOLD the POWER BUTTON until both the Battery and Function LEDs blink repeatedly. Release the Power Button. The keyboard is now in pairing mode. Click PAIR on the display screen. A passcode should display, enter this passcode on the bluetooth keyboard, then press the ENTER key. It may ask you to repeat the process using other passcodes. Enter them the same way, then press ENTER. The youtube video also suggested making sure the device drivers for the keyboard are the latest version (from the acer website for that unit) if you are having difficulty.
  10. Usually works for me, but then I'm not usually going for overly complicated search parameters search: "all mail" to:( after:2016/12/01 before:2016/12/31
  11. Good that you took the risk and swapped the wire positions. It should have been a simple open relay connection (making the connection when the IR beam was broken. But maybe there's a diode in the circuit that only allows the 'sense' current to flow one direction through the IR Board circuit. Glad you got it working.
  12. This cable appears to be a required MEN (Multiple Earth Neutral) Bridge Connection upstream of the Safe-T-Cut breaker. Extreme caution should be exercised around this connection if your MAINS Connection is operating in a FAIL MODE (Neutral partially or fully disconnected). With the MEN bridge in place your Earth Ground is acting as the alternate Neutral Return to the transformer. Most likely your MAINS Neutral has a major issue (corrosion or partial connection) somewhere between the meter and the CU. Since this failure is occurring upstream of your Safe-T-Cut it isn't being triggered. But a poor Neutral (and possible a matching poor Live connection) will likely to be the cause of your voltage loss. Still, a bad, and very potentially lethally dangerous, situation.
  13. Via GOOGLE: On the two boards, VCC and GND connections get wired to the VCC+ and VCC- (or 18+ and GND in the diagram) On the one board, IR and COM connections (COM and OUT in the diagram) get wired to GND and IR ...though this seems reversed, I believe it is a 'dry' connection (acting as a relay switch) so shouldn't matter.

  15. According to HOW TO CONNECT A SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB TO A LARGE SCREEN TV Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 For Dummies By Dan Gookin "As long as the TV has an HDMI input, you can connect your Galaxy Tab to see the Big Picture. To make the HDMI connection, you need the Multimedia Dock or HDMI dongle. Yep: The Tab doesn’t do HDMI straight out of the box. The friendly folks at the Phone Store would be happy to sell you the proper HDMI equipment." To display your Galaxy Tab A directly on an HDMI capable TV you'd need a MicroUSB to HDMI adapter. Or, as other posters have mentioned, you might be able to 'cast; to either a Smart TV or TV equipped with an external Android box or Google Chromecast -type device over WiFi.
