RE: internet providers

I'm working at St. Mary's Montana (the east gate of Glacier National Park) and AT&T DOES NOT WORK. Verizon does. I have Millenicom and a Net 10 phone that works on Verizon towers and I have been very pleased!

RE: Alabama to Yellowstone

In April of this year I began a trek from Southeast Texas to Montana for a workamping position. Highlights for me are: Taos Pueblo, Four Corners, Canyon De Chelley, Virgin River Gorge (I 15 in Arizona), Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I originally planned the Grand Canyon on the trip, but because of weather I bypassed and spent 3 days in Kingman, Arizona. Any of the above is a definite revisit for me!

RE: storing 6 rubbermaid tubs of photo albums?

Quality is relative! I'm with Bumby Road! Scanned images are far superior to copies from a camera. Anyone who says otherwise is inexperienced or has clouded information! A lot of technical issues are at play and I'm not going to spend the time explaining! I will say: they are your photos! The decision is yours!

RE: storing 6 rubbermaid tubs of photo albums?

As a retired professional photographer who is proficient with scanning and photoshop, I think you will notice a difference in photos taken with a camera versus scanned. It's all in the lighting, focus, f/stop and shutter speed. A scanner takes all of that out the the equation and is a much better approach. On another note, you've given me an idea. I wonder how much someone would pay to have old photos scanned, enhanced, put on a disc or zip drive? Since I am a fulltimer, this would all be done by mail. Will certainly appreciate all comments. PM me if more comfortable.

RE: Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

HOw can an employer who hides his identity expect a prospect to tailor a cover letter for his specific situation?

An Internet Explorer/Firefox question

I was having some trouble with my computer being slow and not working so one of the things I did was to download Firefox and I really do like it. Seems to have more safeguards than IE. Question: am I doing any potential harm by leaving IE installed? If the best thing to do is delete, what other program could I install to get on the internet if Firefox fails? I am using Windows 8. THANKS!

RE: Best Spyware, Malware Recommendation

Thanks to everyone for all of the replies! The variety of comments have certainly given me "food for thought".

Best Spyware, Malware Recommendation

I've used the FREE AVG for several years. Wondering if there is a better FREE product out there. I am using Windows 8. THANKS!

RE: Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

I often do recruiting for firms who wish to remain anonymous initially so they do not have to go through 300+ resumes that are deadbeats. I go through the resumes to screen and provide perhaps 5 or 6 candidates to the client AFTER I have checked them out. The rest go in the can. That is not a reason to hide the name of the potential employer. Don't prospective employees have a right to know who they might be working for?

RE: Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

When any business does something like that, it's because they have a bad reputation. If they fully disclosed who they were, they'd never get any applications for employment. If that's their approach, you're probably better off passing that "opportunity" by. Would you buy a new automobile having never seen it, not knowing what brand it was? Same thing with a job! Run! I'm with DutchmenSport! Workamper News indicated they would forward the resumes...they are not doing any screening...I believe it is in my best interst to pass.

RE: Epson Printer Recommendation

You're right...I do want to stay Epson...but the poster who listed Canon offered no reason for his/her comment. I use Canon cameras...so I am not opposed to Canon...give me a reason!

Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

There is an ad than began today on Workamper News seeking an employee with a high and diversified skill level. I wrote to Workamper News asking for more information and was told that the employer chose not to be identified. Why would a company seeking a middle to upper middle management individual make such a choice? My thoughts are that I would not spend the time to prepare a specific cover letter if I do not know to whom I am applying. Your thoughts.

Epson Printer Recommendation

For over 11 years I have used an Epson 2200 with virtually no problems! It has been wonderful to print professional images up to 13 x 19 inches. I think its about time to get a new one. I want to stay Epson, but smaller and lighter in weight. My new printer could print up to 11 x 14 but I'm thinking I would be satisfied with a unit that would print professional images up to 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Recommendations appreciated.

RE: If you are looking for paid work...

What kind of workers are being solicited? What is the wage range? Why such a shortage of workers?

Slide Out Not Working...Motor Running

I am doing a Workamping position in the Glacier Park area and a new Workamper has just moved into the RV Park. During setup her bedroom slide would not move completely out. She started the motor, it moved several inches and stopped. She can push the on button and the motor will come on but the slide will not move. Any suggestions I can help he with? THANKS!!!

RE: Minnie Winnie 25B No Slide Out

I'm with j-d! After having a 34 ft 5th wheel with 4 slides, my no compromise points during my searching for a Class C was: no front window, no slides, no carpet and one airconditioner. In 2011 I decided on a 2000 Winnebago Minnie Winnie DL. 30 ft is very comfortable for me and Baby Girl (my Catahoula).

RE: I don't know much about workamping but....

Not including utilities is ALWAYS a deal breaker for me! As long as there are people willing to work for $3-$4 per hour there will continue to be companies soliciting such! It is my opinion that too many RV parks expect a high level employee while only wanting to pay minimum wage or less!

Any experience with Vue Scan

My Epson 2450 Scanner is not supported by Epson in Windows 8. Vue Scan appears to be the solution. Experiences good or not so good would be appreciated.
