1  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: block private numbers from leaving voicemail? on: May 07, 2015, 08:38:33 PM
I'm not getting the voicemail in youmail. It goes to my at&t voicemail.
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / block private numbers from leaving voicemail? on: May 06, 2015, 06:24:49 PM
I'm on at&t, and I have YouMail setup as my phone's voicemail service. Starting a few days ago, I've been getting voice mails in my at&t visual voicemail app from a private number. They aren't calling me, just directly leaving a voicemail. Is there any way to stop them from being able to leave voice mails?

I've learned a few weeks ago that DC isn't the right forum to ask for car stereo advice. I'm looking for a new one too, but I have a few specific features I'm looking for. The only response I got back was for some Portable wireless speakers... ohmy huh

SoundCloud If you just want to share them. (Don't think you can put a price here?)
bandcamp If you want to actually sale them. (never actually used it, but I assume it might be pretty good.
cdbaby Is an alternative to bandcamp. I don't make music, so I've never uploaded anything to it, however I have bought a song from a Youtuber that used this site.
5  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Looking for good cheap car stereo with bluetooth on: March 18, 2015, 01:14:51 AM
I'm looking to replace my current car stereo with a slightly better one. My current one has bluetooth built in, so that I can have my android phone (note 4) in my pocket, and stream google play music to my car stereo. The problem is, it takes about half a minute to connect to my phone (is that normal for car stereos? this is my first bluetooth equipped one.) Also, half the time, when my phone does finally connect, music won't start playing, and I have to turn the stereo off and back on again to get it to work. (its not my phone, because it also did this with my nexus 5.) (I have an app on my phone that opens play music whenever it connects to my car.) Then I also have a problem where it will sometimes pause after each song, so I have to hit the pause button on the stereo after each song to get it to play again. This isn't a bug, but something that I don't really like, but the display is rather tiny, so it only shows a tiny bit of the title of the current song playing, and then slowly scrolls the title across the screen.

I have a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am 3.4L V6 4 door sedan car.

So what I am looking for, is:
1. Built in Bluetooth audio streaming (don't care if it does bluetooth calls or not. I almost never make or receive calls anyway.)
2. Preferably a screen that shows the artist and title of the current song being played.
3. Not too expensive. (I paid $99 for my current one. I only have a part time job that pays $7.50/hr.)
  3a. Preferably about $150 or less. (yeah, I know this kind of limits it a lot.)

I could settle for one that streams Google Play Music from my phone via usb only if it has requirement 2.
The more I think about it, I suppose I don't have to have bluetooth, I just like not having to pull my phone out of my pocket, and plugging it into my car every time I get in.

I've been looking on crutchfield.com, and can't really find a whole lot. Not really sure where else online to look. (is amazon a good place to buy car stereos?)

you could use a .tk domain name, and setup mailinator's private mailinator feature.

Evernote is on my list but it is very big with options I may not require. A smaller simple would be better for startup.

How about Google Keep?
I second Google Keep. I used to use and love it all the time, until I got my note 4. Now I use S Note.

Wow! Looks pretty awesome! I just downloaded and installed it, but I'm too lazy to logout and log back in, so I'll test it out later.

Ah, yeah I read that he went on hiatus. I just didn't know that he was back now.  thumbs up I'll have to suggest those features then.

I've used smart launcher in the past, and even own the pro version of it. I do like how the "tabs" are organized on the left instead of across the top (in nova launcher prime) Though, I like more how I can organize my apps into tabs and then an alphabetical list in Nova Launcher Prime. It makes it easier to sift through all my apps. Plus, I've grown to love the multiple pages of docks that Nova Launcher Prime provides. I can put my phone, web browser, messaging, and camera apps on the primary dock, and then slide the dock to either the left or right (I've got three pages setup right now) and then have access to my most used apps, all while keeping my actual homescreen clean and uncluttered. The only two things I can think of to make Nova Launcher Prime even better, is to be able to move the app drawer tabs to the left of the screen, and when in list view, have the letters of the alphabet along the right side of the screen to quickly jump to that letter. (Right now, you can run your finger up and down the right side of the screen, and it will scroll through the alphabet, but doesn't jump to specific letter, so it is very easy to scroll past the letter you want to stop on.) I don't know if the features could be added, because I've heard from some sources that Nova Launcher isn't being developed anymore, and I've also heard that it will be developed more.

I was loving the free version. The scrolling dock was awesome, and I can put 1x1 widgets in it. The only downside, is I was forced to buy the prime version to get the tabs in the app drawer. But for me, the $4 I payed was worth it just to have tabs and the app drawer displayed in list mode alone. I also like how I can remap the home button to launch S Finder from the primary homescreen. Might have found my new favorite launcher! Thmbsup
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Looking for a good Android launcher on: December 06, 2014, 06:58:48 PM
I completly forgot about S Finder. I've never actually used it. I'll have to look at nova launcher. the tabbed app drawer sounds interesting.

I'm in search of a new launcher for my android phone. I'm looking for some specific things in this launcher.
1.I'd like the app tray to be organized in folders kind of like how they are organized in the aviate launcher.
2.I'd like to have a global search option like in the everythingme launcher. (start typing and it searches for music, contacts, apps, etc.)
3.Not a deal breaker by any means (and really don't expect to have this feature), but I would like to be able to place an app on my homescreen, and then swipe up from the app, and display a widget like in the action launcher.
App tray(Aviate launcher)
[attach=1]
App search(everythingme launcher)
[attach=2]
(BONUS)Swipe up widgets(action launcher)
[attach=3]

I kind of like everythingme, because of it's smart folders on the desktop (the wallpaper changes to the subject of the folder), but it auto populates the folders, so I won't be able to remember which folder my apps are in. (though, I guess that is fixable by using the find feature, and just start typing in the name of the app)

As an alternative to the above features, does anyone know of any fancy launchers with cool features? I have a note 4, so my phone should be able to handle all the bells and whistles of the launcher.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: looking for good/working way to text from computer on: November 08, 2014, 12:06:47 PM
I leave bluetooth on all the time (so that I don't have to turn it on when I get into my car since I use my phone to stream music because live radio has to many ads), so I think I might just find a good cheap bluetooth keyboard to use while I'm at home. That way I don't have to install any extra apps on my phone... to bad there isn't synergy for android
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: looking for good/working way to text from computer on: November 07, 2014, 10:43:10 PM
Then I'm sending texts from my email, and not from my phone number. I did that when I was using a dumb phone to get ringtones onto my phone. I'm testing out an app called remote keyboard, which lets me use a telnet client on my computer, and anything I type in that client shows up on my phone. I'm perfectly fine with this, because that means I can use my computer's keyboard for more than just text messaging.

As the title suggests, I'm looking for a good way (that actually works) to send and receive sms and mms from my computer. I spend most of my time at home sitting in front of my computer, so why not be able to text from my computer. So far I have tried Airdroid, which kind of worked, but wouldn't display picture messages, and I have also tried mightytext, but its kind of bugy, and half the time won't show my messages in the web interface.

The idea is not to buy it, but to earn it.

Oh, well poop. I'm not that great of a coder. I only know a little bit of AHK scripting.

Nope it's a different one.

Yeah, I still need to finish this one. It has some things that need to be tweaked.

But I don't think it would be quite suitable for NANY. It really is designed purely for Coding Snacks.
 (see attachment in previous post)

If that were made into a shirt, I would so buy it!

Well trying to donate via the DoCo system took more than 5 seconds to figure out, so I will just have to donate through indiegogo.

22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Looking for new windows media center remote. on: September 11, 2014, 03:09:56 PM
I currently have this media center remote. It apparently emulates keyboard keystrokes, because I have a samsung galaxy tab 3 7.0" tablet with the IR port on it. There is an option to control windows media center with the tablet, but I guess my remote isn't compatible with this. Also, for whatever reason, the play, pause, stop, and fastforward/rewind buttons no longer seem to want to work on my remote. (I haven't plugged the receiver into a different computer yet to see if it works on that computer yet). So what I am looking for is a windows media center remote that will let me use my tablet (or my note 4 whenever it is released, and I get it), or maybe something else down the road such as Logitech's Harmony remotes (are they any good?).

I bought a "Microsoft Media Center RC6 iR Remote Control Kit w/Receiver Cable" from ebay, but the seller hasn't shipped it yet. He sent me a message saying that he couldn't find the remote, but asked if I still wanted just the receiver. Would that receiver do the job?

As always, thanks for the help. I love how helpful the DC community has been in answering my many questions. You guys rock!

Edit: I guess I will find out if this microsoft remote will work. The guy found the remote, and is shipping it out in the morning.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 09, 2014, 12:55:00 AM
Yeah, I'm all up to date now. I checked shortly after I got home from work. I only had one small update.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 09, 2014, 12:32:56 AM
Directx 10 is not supported in the game?

XP doesn't support Directx 10, so selecting that mode would revert back to Directx 9 allowing the game to run.

That would be my best guess.
That actually makes sense. I just relooked as the system requirements, and it said it needed a directx 9 compatible card.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: New "censorship" technique on Youtube on: August 08, 2014, 11:22:54 PM
I live in the US, and several years ago, I ran across a video that had that muted audio claim on it. I haven't seen it recently tho. All I have seen recently is just videos that have been removed due to copyright claims, or not available in my country.
