RE: Sprinter Class B Wheelchair Accomodation (?)

Doug: Sorry to hear about your ailment. For DW's post-polio quadriparesis & electric scooter, we had Born Free custom build a 26' Class C on an E-450 chassis with a Ricon split-platform lift mounted at the rear door. We went that way for 2 reasons: 1. Because most disability parallel parking spaces aren't van-accessible ("right-hand ramp clearance"), and we tend to use parking lot spaces. We can pull into the spaces, or use 2 spaces back-to-back. 2. The real issue is having a turning radius inside the vehicle. With a side lift, you need 24"-36" turning radius at the end of the lift. If you're using a swivel on the driver's seat, you'll be running off the lift and hitting the commode. (It's even worse if you're using an electric transfer seat, since you can't pull the chair into the seat track area.) PM us if you want more information. DW is a retired rehabilitation counselor and purchased many vehicles for her clients, working with NMEDA-certified vehicle modifiers. (Sorry, but since Born Free closed, the pictures & video of our coach were lost in their web site disappearance.

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Why is this topic still going on in Technology Corner? It has NOTHING to do with technology! It's more appropriate for Around the Campfire. Moderator, my apologies for making this a public post. Everytime I try to Notify Moderator fails with an error message.

RE: Flip Phone

Well, if you have US$1,500 & can wait until Dec. 26th to pre-order, you can buy the new Motorola Razr 2019. It's a full smartphone that folds horizontally across the middle, to match the original Razr phone form factor, exclusively with VZN in the US. It even has an overlay for the phone mode to match the original phone keyboard, for those of us nostalgics. High on my drool list!

RE: Help with a batch file not concatinating it's logs

And shame on those who feel the need to knock a question that isn't in their wheelhouse and therefore need to scold - humor aside. You just asking a question in a place your comfortable doing so. As the millennials now say, I'm sorry, not sorry for what you perceived as scolding. I intended it as a polite suggestion; the OP is free to disregard, because of his stated dislike of those type of boards I suggested. I started my comment by saying that, as a retired IT professional (and therefore potentially in my wheelhouse), I wouldn't place so detailed a technical question in a forum where only a few members might be qualified to answer -- as opposed to forums where almost everyone has a fair amount of experience in the occupation. When you fish, don't you cast where the school of fish is located, rather than a mile away? That's all I meant to suggest. But, I'll let this battle drop, now.

RE: Terrible Trucks

My nephew is 6'7" tall. He says that his pickup was the only vehicle he could drive comfortably without opening the sun roof! Lotsa reasons why people buy specific vehicles!

RE: Help with a batch file not concatinating it's logs

WesternRVParkOwner has it right. Don't be surprised if this doesn't get a lot of responses. This is an RV-oriented board and this question is better oriented towards boards like Windows Ten Forums, where all the participants are coding jocks. (I'm a retired coding jock myself and would never post such a question here.) Good luck with your problem.

RE: How High???

In our Born Free, we have a small stuffed lion (BF pun intended) on the dashboard, carrying a small sign reading "10'6"". His name is Clarence, so we always have an answer to the question from "Airplane": "What's the clearance, Clarence?"

RE: Chrome vs IE vs Edge

{snip} I am noticing that several have suddenly quit working with Chrome and I have to reboot into Edge to be able to pay at the site.{snip} On the other hand, I have several sites, including my health insurance site, where Edge is blocked and the only MS-supplied browser that's acceptable is IE … which is doomed to destruction. Yet, when I bring this to their attention, their answer is "Go Chrome". Maybe, Edgium will come soon enough, for those of us whose IT departments won't tolerate self-installation of other software.

RE: Mobility scooter questions

My wife has been using Amigo scooters continuously since 1983. They're extremely well-designed, so that they can be troubleshot & repaired by owners with minimal effort. (When we were living overseas for 9 years, we could obtain parts by airmail and replace most major parts ourselves.) And, it's 100% US made in MI. As a rehabilitation counselor, DW keeps aware of almost every product on the market and still recommends the Amigo line -- if the client has money or private insurance. Here in Florida, Medicare will only pay for the cheapest product on the market, which Amigo will never be! If you need a seat lift (which full-time users frequently prefer, so that they can reach counters and transfer downhill), Medicare won't -- by Federal law -- pay ANYTHING for your "Personal Mobility Vehicle". So, it's a matter of "You get what you pay for".

RE: DirecTV DNS changes

Yes, the DTV/uVerse contract dispute impacts every CBS O&O (owned & operated) local station, as well as their satellite-only channels (e.g., CBS Sports Network). It doesn't appear to impact their streamed subscription service, CBS All Access, which has led some conspiracy theorists to speculate that CBS' motivation to hardball this contract is to boost CBS AA subscriptions. But, this sort of thing happens to every carrier - both sat & CATV. I remember when Dish had a similar battle with a group owner, and when Comcast came down to the 11th hour on another renewal with Viacom (CBS + the Viacom sat channels). Personally, I give kudos to DTV for maintaining their DNS service with non-O&O stations. But, DTV owners don't have to worry about losing their local NFL team's coverage; just go for the full NFL package.
