Better than being angry all the time!

Nice to see you around. I'm still impressed by your discourse on Vuescan.

Why kid around?

Removed extender.
Disconnected other machines from the network.
Got my only neighbour (not close) to shut down for a brief trial.
Killed all relevant registry entries.
Rebboted and...

No dice.
Since, for all practical purposes, this is only cosmetic I'll live with it until I stumble across a solution.

Thanks to you all for your help. Please post here if any other suggestions occur to you.

Is there possibly a wifi-repeater active, still re-publishing the now no longer available SSID?
That's a very good thought!
I'll look into it as soon as I recover from the latest Win 10 debacle; it nuked my main computer (again, <sigh>). Thank goodness for daily back-ups!

5
So maybe it is a currently active network nearby that is being redetected..

I'm a duffer at this (could you tell?  :))

Gentlemen,
 
1) Would redetected networks show up with the specific names that I'd allocated to them? I'll trawl the registry and see if and where those names are still present.

2) If other machines on my network retain the names of the defunct connections, would that 're-infect' the machine from which the names were expunged?

If it takes a man a week to walk a fortnight...

It's the MS version of Whack-a-Mole   ;D

Hunted them down in the registry, deleted same, sat back with a sigh of relief... and back they came.

At the moment I can't rid my Android phone of them either.

Thanks for the suggestion, Iain.

I tried all of that. I now see only the network that I have under "Manage Known Networks."
Unfortunately, the defunct network still appears if I click the icon in the system tray.

If I right-click entries for my remaining network I can select from
Connect
Properties
Forget

If I right-click on entries for the 'ghost' network I am offered only Connect.
At that point it will collect the password and then... do nothing.

This is just a cosmetic issue but also annoying.

Windows trouble shooter fires blanks.

Thanks for the response  :)

Yeah, tried that one already. Supposedly forgotten already but... there they are, hanging on.

General Software Discussion / Out, damned WiFi spot! Out, I say!
« on: July 03, 2019, 02:48 PM »


Running Windows 10.

I recently dropped one ISP in favour of another.

My WiFi is connected to the router provided by the current ISP.

The previous router has been removed, all cable disconnected.

When I select the internet icon on the task bar, the fly-out still shows entries for the old, defunct ISP as options

It looks roughly like this:

NewISP
Connected, Secured
---------------------
NewISP_5G
Secured
---------------------
OldISP_24G
Secured
---------------------
OldISP_5G
Secured

How can I remove the OldISP entries?

I've tried various netsh wlan commands which I thought should have done the job.

It's only a cosmetic issue but I'd prefer not see entries for non-existent connections.

Any help would be welcome.

You might take a look at this.

HotStrings (Autocorrect / Text Expansion) with AutoHotkey
Click here for the link to it.

Not quite free (discounted to $15 Canadian dollars for a couple of days).
(Autohotkey itself is free)

Since you like AHK, perhaps take a look at FastKeys click here. The web site shows quite a bit of the interface so you and your wife could see if it looks to be a good fit. (It's inexpensive, too.)

Good lord this Cranioscopicallity is spreading like a virus.
Do I sense some internal resistance?
-cranioscopical (March 20, 2019, 06:01 AM)

That was a circuitous path to that current pun.

Circuitous?  More like a straight conduit to the pun...

Just DODdering along, more like...

I've built some surrounding small cabinets/shelves to make the range look more built-in and use every available inch of storage:
You made a really good job of those. I didn't even notice them in the first picture because they fit in so well—I thought it was all range.

Working on this stuff you're obviously in your element.

i interrupt this PUN war to report in from the field: I have somehow finished all electric wiring and plumbing, and everything works (!)
It all works?!  To celebrate, I volt for a Faraday for an entire week!
We'll just call you the generator of a new war...
Leave it to Jody Ohms to be the transformer of the conversation..
can someone remind me, wire are we doing this?
Because no one will be the terminator of the arc.
Yep, we just keep plugging along.


I suppose for some its an outlet, but for the rest its just circuitous...

As long as the posts are positive, and not negative, I'm happy to continue.

IC...

Well, hopefully none reverse the polarity of the thread.

For that, where do I need to sine the petition?

Let me reach out to my contacts, and I'll get back to you.

I think it'll require a three-pronged approach to cover the ground.

But after that you'll feel transform...er, converted.

What on earth do you mean?

Well done! It's quite novel the way you have hot water coming from the cold tap when the light goes on.

rule of thumb, no one should ever touch electricity...

Shocking revelation, that.

That lightning wit on display, eh?

These kinds of remarks are a bit of a jolt!

Ohm my word, I knew you all wouldn't be able to resist.

That comment really Hertz.

And so it should! After all, we are discussing the crown joules of mouser's demesne.

-cranioscopical (March 08, 2019, 02:46 PM)

I think that there is a potential difference that you re-fuse to see that I can't relay between our alternating current conversations.

We're poles apart and, to be direct, at the risk of seeming a growler, that kind of thinking comes close to analog ic. You really should keep an ion it.
-cranioscopical (March 08, 2019, 08:07 PM)

come on guys, try to remember this is a DC forum...


AC your problem.  ;D

Un-phased by all of this...

Trust you to pylon!
-cranioscopical (March 10, 2019, 12:45 PM)

pretty sure you guys have ground about as much as you can out of this

No one would fault mouser if he set an impedance on the frequency of off-topic conversations on this circuit and placed a demand on us to cut it short.

Or he lets us go on by extension, cord-ially....

could go either way, though I fully expect him to arc up soon


Would we want to have him amp up about this?

The mains part of this powerful conversation sure went off the rail, didn't it?

Only a third of it.

This conversation's spark is fading, so wire you giving it more continuity?

I can't tell—do you approve of such conduct or not?

Good Lord! If that's the way your kitchen looks, no wonder you want to remodel.

Finally found my next PC...

Spoiler
OverclockersUK is selling a gaming PC that costs almost as much as a Tesla Model 3: for $43,000, filthy rich enthusiasts get a tower that is actually two systems in one, comprising three NVIDIA Titan RTX GPUs, a liquid-cooled and overclocked 18C/36T Intel Core i9-7890XE and 8C/8T i9-9700K, 144GB of DDR4 RAM, eight 2TB Samsung SSDs, and a 2000W power supply.

Who uses log anyway?
Yule find out one day...    ;)

You guys can stick those puns somewhere.


And then it ends up to be a match...

Your bark is worse than your bite, truth be told.

Stop hounding him!
