Q&A with CIPCUG Session 120

Microsoft Launcher for Android Phone

John Weigle   Is the Avast safe browser incognito mode automatically installed or does it have to be downloaded separately.

Andy Toth   I’ve been experimenting with a OneNote file filename.one. I put it my OneDrive folder on partition E:\. When I open the app OneNote that file does not appear in the file/folder listing. If I browse from the OneNote app the file, which is visible in windows explorer, is not visible. If I right click filename.one and use open with OneNote it opens. It makes no difference if I use the Windows 10 installed OneNote, or OneNote in Office 2016. I am logged-in with a local account on the computer. Then I log into my MS account. The file only exists in the OneDrive folder.

If I go to another computer and log into my MS account. I can see the cloud drive the other folders and files but

filename.one is not visible. Logging into OneDrive on my phone, I can see filename.one but, when trying to open, I get the message that it cannot be opened.

Tor browser logo

K Edward Lynch:  What’s up with Tor browser??

Fred Krueger: I spent most of the day on the phone and computer dealing
with some insurance agents. some of the time I was waiting for call
backs and during those times
I received at least 4 calls from people
I did not believe were legitimate. They wanted to sell me some kind of
insurance. I do not believe that those calls were coincidence. We have
the Spectrum bundle here. I think there is something fishy at Spectrum.
A few telemarketers maybe but not all insurance sellers.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 112

The new Petro currency

Andy Toth   Interesting email problem. whenever my wife sends a pdf attachment using WindowsLive from one account, it is received as a list of openable files and emails — but you can’t open them.  If the file is sent from a different account it comes through fine.  I am using Thunderbird and I have no problem sending her pdf attachments.  Both of us use the same email server. Why would a pdf attachment be corrupted from only one sender?
