G Lock Easy mail looks good.  I tried a simple 3 person group and lo and behold each recipient  ONLY had his name - even better than ' Undisclosed recipients "
I guess that is because it is designed for mass mailings
And of course you are correct whe nyou  said I send from any account I am able to.  I of course had to set it up using My SMPT.

But I think this fits the bill  Thank you. 
I knew Donation Coder would steer me in the right direction and  all in less than and hour and a half. !!!! Grin

Thanks.  I'm looking into G Lock.  I want to set up something that when I'm not doing this the next person can just take over the program and all.

Thanks Carol, but we already have a YAHOO email account set up and in use for the association.  I need a simple e-mail client to use with YAHOO mail

I use Thunderbird for my personal e-mail.  I am involved in my homeowner association .  We are using Yahoo Mail.   I want to be able to send an e-mail to 195 people, which will show up  to each of them as undisclosed recipients. But I want to be able to do this by entering  one ( 1)  group name in the  send to:  ( I realize I have to set this up  first )

I do not want to use Thunderbird, even with a separate profile.   I don't need a lot of bells and whistles. 

Thanks

I asked Visa.  Here is their reply:                Note the second paragraph.

Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience concerning acceptance of your Visa card. Visa sets high standards for all its products and services, and we are concerned when cardholders inform us of difficulties in using their Visa cards. We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced and hope this information proves helpful.

Please be assured that merchants, displaying the Visa logo, are not permitted to choose whether or not to accept a Visa card for payment of goods and services if the customer is acting in good faith.

Visa U.S.A. is a corporation with over 16,000 financial institutions. These institutions issue their own Visa cards and sign up merchants to accept Visa cards. They also set the terms and conditions for their merchant relationships and handle any customer service matters relating to them. While we at Visa are concerned about the satisfactory resolution of complaints regarding merchants, we do not have access to cardholder accounts or merchant records. As a result, we cannot contact merchants directly.

Therefore, we recommend as your next step that you please notify the disputes area at the financial institution that issued your card account of any merchant practices that you feel are inappropriate. Your card issuing bank has access to the appropriate Visa rules and regulations as well as to the Notification of Customer Complaint forms which should be used by your bank to document and file merchant complaints. It is not necessary for your bank to be the offending merchant's financial institution in order to file a complaint for you.

As an alternative, to report merchant practices that you feel are inappropriate, you may wish to contact the Global Customer Care Services at 1-800-VISA-911 (1-800-847-2911).

Thank you for using Visa.
Visa Webmaster

Is it Apple policy in ALL their stores, or just this one ?

After all Best Buy takes cash and sell iPads.

From the US Treasury dept Website     http://www.ustreas.gov/ed...rrency/legal-tender.shtml

Quote
The pertinent portion of law that applies to your question is the Coinage Act of 1965, specifically Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled "Legal tender," which states: "United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues."

This statute means that all United States money as identified above are a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. There is, however, no Federal statute mandating that a private business, a person or an organization must accept currency or coins as for payment for goods and/or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether or not to accept cash unless there is a State law which says otherwise. For example, a bus line may prohibit payment of fares in pennies or dollar bills. In addition, movie theaters, convenience stores and gas stations may refuse to accept large denomination currency (usually notes above $20) as a matter of policy.

So  I guess it is legal

Apple is not the first one I have heard of doing this, although their reasoning is different.  This from the September 11, 2009 Wall Street Journal

Quote
" Recently, when we came across a restaurant in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village that had adopted a credit-card only policy, we thought it might make for an interesting little non-law related piece for the WSJ."

            "  Let’s get to that in a minute. For now, the story. Tucked at the end of one of the shortest streets in Manhattan lies a well-regarded restaurant called Commerce, which opened early last year. On Wednesday, the restaurant adopted a new policy: it would no longer accept cash. That’s right: it’s credit and debit-cards only at Commerce, which dishes out $13 cocktails and $23 plates of spaghetti carbonara, among other fare, to its mostly well-heeled clientele."

The owner claims it is safer and more convenient for his operation.  " No more armored trucks "

Thanks for enlightening me.  That does make perfect sense.   A ' delete ' button that would allow IT or management an easy way to clear the cache would be appropriate.
I am sure that all the people that make copies of their personal stuff have no idea that it is saved on the company copy machine.  I sure didn't.

As I said in my previous post I get  three newspapers delivered every day -  I like the hard copy with my coffee.    But at least half of what I read on Tuesday in the newspaper I already read  online on Monday.

Daily newspapers are, basically, pointless when you have internet, but weekly magazines are still important.  smiley
The trouble with the magazines is  by the time you get them what's in them is ancient history.  Even tomorrow's newspaper has basically  ' old " news.
93  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Will you miss newspapers when they're gone? on: March 05, 2010, 07:02:11 PM
Online is no substitute for an actual newspaper while sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee ( well several cups )

I get  3 newspapers every day delivered plus I read two on online editions at various time during the day.

I have a Western Digital My Book network drive.  The drive is plugged into my D-Link  wireless router.  My laptop can access that drive. I am  running Vista but I don't think
it would be a problem on Win 7.

I have had experiences with both HP and Microsoft in which I would swear the tech support people did not read the e-mails  that I sent.  They just send a response that has little or no bearing on the problem that I first brought up. 
 To my e-mail   # 1                  send response  #  1
To my second e-mail                Send response # 2       and so on ad nuaseum

No need to actually read my e-mails

Your call is very important to us .............

You are right, but remember, locks are for honest people. Just compiling should do the trick for most of the users

I am sure nobody is trying  hard to hack my computer for  passwords or private info.  I just don't want to make it easy for anyone who might take a look.

98  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: encrypted AHK script on: January 19, 2010, 09:06:51 PM
I compiled the script and put it on a flash drive. ( Strangely it took my three tries to compile.  Kept getting an error message.)
That should Thank you all for your help.
99  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / encrypted AHK script on: January 19, 2010, 01:13:26 PM
I have and AHK script that sends a text  password to open a program by my pressing a hotkey series . In the password GUI it shows as ******************
 But if anyone were to open the AHK file the password is in plain text. ( although you would have to know it is a password )
Is there a way to hide or encrypt the plain text in tha AHK file and yet have it work as the  password  to open the program ?

FYI

2009 U.S. VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY AND PC GAME SOFTWARE RETAIL SALES REACH $20.2 BILLION
Software Sales Experienced 11 Percent Decline When Compared to 2008

PORT WASHINGTON, NY, January 14, 2010 - According to leading market research company, The NPD Group, U.S. retail sales of video games, which includes portable and console hardware, software and accessories, generated revenues of close to $19.66 billion, an 8 percent decline over the $21.4 billion generated in 2008.

Retail sales in the PC game software industry also experienced declines, with revenues down 23 percent, generating $538 million in 2009. The total console, portable and PC game software industry generated $10.5 billion, an 11 percent decline vs. the $11.7 billion generated in 2008.

“December sales broke all industry records and underscores the incredible value consumers find in computer and video games even in a down economy,” said Michael D. Gallagher, president and CEO of the Entertainment Software Association, the trade group which represents U.S. computer and video game publishers. “This is a very strong way to transition into 2010. I anticipate these solid sales numbers to continue upward through 2010 with a pipeline full of highly-anticipated titles.”

Aside from portable hardware which experienced a 6 percent increase in revenue in 2009, all video game categories experienced declines, with the largest decline coming from console hardware (-13 percent). Console software and portable software both experienced declines of 10 percent, while video game accessories experienced a 1 percent decline.
 
"When we started the last decade, video game industry sales, including PC games, totaled $7.98B in 2000," said Anita Frazier, industry analyst, The NPD Group. "In ten years, the industry has changed dramatically in many ways, but most importantly it was grown over those years by more than 250 percent at retail alone.  Considering there are many new sources of revenue including subscriptions and digital distribution, industry growth is even more impressive."
