RE: Good customer service

A couple of weeks later a "supervisor" with Samsung called to ask about my repair experience. He didn't like what he heard. I always reply to any questions about the level of satisfaction regarding a contact for customer service. Like you say they don't like what they hear. Most times I follow up with a letter to the company CEO. No drama just the facts. Oddly I never hear back from them. :h

RE: Do I need Java?

Well. There is Java and there is Java Java #1 = Coffee There is no life before Coffee So yes you need Coffee. Java #2 is a compuer thing and some web pages reqauire it.. most do not. Don't even think about talking to me until after the first application of Java #1 and it would be best to wait until after the second application. :)

RE: Good customer service

Based on my experience I find that "Good" customer service is the exception rather then the rule. Sad state of affairs but have no fear it will go down hill from here. There's no profit in customer service only overhead.

RE: CCleaner causing issues

I agree with those of you that favor the use of CCleaner. I use it before creating a backup image so if I need the image I don't get the ... well you know. However I have never felt the need to clean the registry with anything. From all I've read it really doesn't make any difference to Windows 7 operation unless you take out something that Windows is fond of, but that's another story. I'm still using an older version as I don't like the new flat interface nor do I need any of the new improvements. It ain't broke so I can't see trying to fix it.

RE: LastPass security company

I have been trying to find a good password program that is local, on my computer or a jump drive. The safest password vault is the one located directly behind your eyes. Otherwise RoboForm works pretty well. Thank you! I would never put my passwords on a website no matter what they claim. You're Welcome. Robo is a handy program. Just a point of reference LastPass isn't what you would call a website. I've used it for years but only for the most mundane passwords, like this forum and others along with some junk email accounts. I do believe that LastPass is safe but I'm a little upset with their slow roll out of notification that they had an incident. I happen to see it on a network news site three days after it happened. I didn't get an official notification for 5 days. Entirely to slow... and an eternity in the security field. They should feel quite embarrassed but I doubt they do. They did post it on their forum but it's not a place I visit everyday. Some of the less important ones like my regular email accounts are in RoboForm. I've used that for years as well mostly for convenience. The real important ones like financial accounts are behind my eyes and between my ears. Having said that I should add that I'm getting up there in years and may have to start relying more on RoboForm.. Things are getting a little mushy behind the eyes. :E Now where did I put my keys..:h

RE: Thank you

Bizarre gets the recommended action the OP refers to. I see enough bizarre in the real world and don't need it here. We're all supposed to be happy campers,,, well almost happy at the very least. Tip of the hat the mods and their tireless efforts to keep the bizarre to a minimum. With regard to the repetitive questions... It seems to me to be a bit of laziness on the part of the poster. They seem to not notice the big "Search" box in the upper left corner. Oh wait... that may take some effort. It was always my understanding that RVers are supposed to be self sufficient and willing to resolve the myriad of issues they seem to encounter on their own....{chuckles :R}

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

From OP.... Thanks again for some of the more recent responses. My Mom's new computer with 8.1 installed arrived today, so we will just config it to make it look as familiar to her Win7 experience as possible. I hadn't heard it was faster to boot. That's nice. Sometimes with Win7 I wonder what in the HECK it is doing! It was probably loading a lot of programs and services. Any computer can be made to boot faster. It all depends on the programs and services the you have set to run at boot. I got my new Win7 x64 with the i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM. Boots in 35 seconds running everything I want. One happy camper here.:) If you really want to speed up a computer install a Solid State Drive. I hear they boot in about 10 to 15 seconds or less. Then again how fast do you need a computer to boot? The more you spend and tweak the faster the boot.

RE: Vipre or McAfee ??

If someone produced the "Perfect AV" they would need a server the size of a stadium to accommodate the demand.

RE: Vipre or McAfee ??

Eset Smart Security - Not Free but does not slow down your system.. I've been infection free for the 6 Years I've had it on all my computers. I agree w8ith 1492 about testing sites but can't agree on using McAfee. It created many problems on my systems. Another thing to consider is the number of false positives detected by the AV.

RE: Closing of Threads

I used to be a staunch supporter against closing work camper threads. But after this particular thread (Workers wanted,) just turned into a name calling, sniping thread that had nothing to do with the job posting, I now understand why. Further the thread goes off track quickly as evidenced by maddczech, just above me. He has every right to post this information and bash Amazon, BUT this thread is not about them, but rather the closing of threads. If your want to discuss other things the place of employment, start another thread. It is not hard. I now see the wisdom of closing work camping job listings threads. This just my opinion and I hope that Diane will chime in and explain it better. Mczech here, sorry about the curveball I so " viciously " interjected in the thread . I get notifications. However this time I chimed in when notified w/ o reading the complete thread from the beginning. Omg it wasn't about @mazon ! But I read the comment about amzon.... Yup well shoot me. I didn't bash amazon. But I could. You ain't in my shoes , they don't fit you. Please don't assume. You know the adage about that ! But since you all about thread ettiquette and not about workcamping for amazon. Anybody want more bout that just contact me. Amazon does have good points in the camperforce program. But you gotta wanna work !There is a thread in this forum where the person who started it is practically begging people to bash Amazon. That would be a good place for you to tell the world that getting a paycheck at Amazon requires having to work for it. Apparently that is something not everyone realizes, that paying jobs usually require that you perform some work. I always assumed people knew that. Silly Me. Ahhh westernrvparkowner you are so old school....;)

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

I put "classic shell" on my Windows 8, laptop but would rather have Windows 7 This...throw classic shell on it and its not that much different. The whole tile system was a bad decision for desktops/laptops. It's an interface that is designed for touch input devices, like tablets and phones. To each there own, I for one am not a poke and swipe type. I guess it's because I've always had desktops and use a mouse and keyboard.

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

I don't normally ask technology questions on here, but the good cross section of folks probably has some good insights... My Mom is 82 years young and her computer just died. Over the years she has gone from Vista to XP to Win7. Most new computers come with Windows 8.1 and 10 will be out later this year. Thing is, the last couple of years she has gotten increasingly less interested in learning new things. I tend to be her "tech support" remotely and also have Win7 with no plans to upgrade. Question is, other than the Desktop layout on Windows 8, is there really that much difference once you start running familiar apps? She mainly uses Thunderbird for email, Internet Explorer, and a little Office 2010 here and there. Wondering if we should let her give a go on Windows 8.1, or to downgrade the new system to Win7 before installing/configuring all her apps. I'm 70 and use Windows 7. I will not be going to Windows 8, 8.1 or 10. I tried 8 and 8.1 and didn't like it. I see nothing in Windows 10 that I find worth the change. We old folks are adverse to change for the sake of change. If any of the other flavors of Windows offered me something worth while I would give more consideration to them, but they don't. My opinion is to do your Mom a favor and don't frustrate her with a change as drastic as Windows 8. I really don't know how you would upgrade a Windows 8.1 system to Windows 7 as MS is no longer selling a license for Win 7 Premium. (Yes, I said upgrade to Win 7) As has been said HP is still selling systems with Windows 7 Professional, I just bought one and waiting for delivery. I will be replacing the 13 year old XP system that my wife is using with the Win 7 I'm using now. It was a fight to get her to change but I promised that except for the faster speed she will be able to do the same things she likes to do. This brings a question to mind. I don't know what system your Win 7 is but it may be a good time for you to get a new system and give yours to your Mom. The one I have now is a dual core AMD and my new one is a HP Envy with a 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4790 processor quad-core 3.6GHz, 8MB Shared Cache, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD, which I managed to get for a very reasonable price. On the other hand maybe you would be happy with a new 8.1 system with a free upgrade to win10 when it's released.. As soon as 10 is released or the stock runs out Windows 7 will be gone unless you buy a refurbished system. By the way, good for your Mom and still using a computer and good for you to help her with your support. You're a good Kid! ;) on Edit: I just noticed that some one posted that a friend purchased a Win 7 license, or at least the Install. It is probably an OEM and I would be very careful in purchasing something like this. A lot of these things being sold can not be activated on MS because they are not Genuine and may be a pirated copy.

RE: Closing of Threads

The employer includes contact information for more details and can answer any questions one may have about the position. Banning a troll only tells the troll to get a new user ID and password as fast as they are banned or ignored. Other members opinions of the work and reimbursement by the employer is of no help at all. Frankly I could care less what "you" would or would not do or what "you" feel would be a fair amount of work for the reimbursement offered. This is not the place to "negotiate" the terms of employment. Either send them a PM or contact them directly through the information provided, obviously the the latter would be the preferred method. In a previous post on the same subject I asked if people write to the editor about jobs posted in their local newspapers classified section for help wanted. No one responded that they did so why should you post here? On the outside chance that you did send remarks to the editor about help wanted ads were your comments published? After all this is just the Help wanted classified section of this forum. If you have had a negative experience with the employer then start your own thread. Be sure to fully explain the complete reason for your experience. Simply saying "this is a bad place to work" or just make derogatory remarks is useless. Better yet post that you have had experience with the employer and provide the information through PM's rather then air your dirty laundry publicly. As a former work camper employer I can assure you that I would not post positions on this forum if the derogatory and sometimes down right nasty posts were allowed to continue. Obviously I am in full support of the moderators and the policy currently in place. When it comes to the rules of this forum Please read them again with attention to the first one We reserve the right to remove any post at any time for any reason On Edit: As an after thought to the opinion that posters should be allowed to comment on their experience and opinions of the employer. Would you agree that the employer should be able to post their opinions and experience with the employee? If not ... why? After all what's good for the goose has to be good for the gander. As a prospective employer I would find the information on the prospective employee as equally helpful as those that find the posting of opinions and experience on the position I offer helpful.

I will do my best to keep it, believe me..... There never was, will never be, a doubt in my mind that you will do your best... You're doing great! Do you actually know any other way? ;)

RE: post closed

I never thought of this forum as anything more then the classified help wanted section of a newspaper. I wonder if these folks write a letter to the editor of their local paper offering their opinion on the jobs posted. Unfortunately our society has become meaner and nastier. Perhaps it's the anonymity that the poster hides behind. If this part of the RV forums is forced to close because of a few it will be a great loss to many.

RE: Do I have to turn off computer over night ?

I use a desktop and have never owned or used a laptop. Having said that my morning starts with turning on the coffee pot, start the computer and brush my teeth. By then I'm good to go. The computer stays on all day. When I'm finished using it for the day it performs some security scans, does any needed maintenance, images the drive to a second internal drive, synchronizes some other files from the second internal drive to a external drive along with a copy of the drive image then shuts itself off. Given that the my boot time is under a minute and a half I really don't see the need to leave it on all the time. Besides the coffee takes longer then the boot and I'm not going to do anything till the coffee s ready.
