COVID-19 Discussion Board / NYC DOE issued iPads
« on: May 05, 2020, 06:27:12 PM »
NYC has been issuing ipads to all students receiving services (therapy etc.)
see here

has anyone received them? have you found them useful?

I have mentioned elsewhere that they restrict zoom, an app that seems ubiquitous in today's e-yeshivos. has anyone had any luck dealing with that?

They say that they will need to be returned later. let's track that here as well.

Credit Cards And Finance / New warning re chase business account?
« on: August 29, 2019, 04:47:56 PM »
I got the following SM from chase
Dear Customer,

You're currently using a personal account as your business billing account. As a business banking customer, your billing account must be a business account. To update your business billing account, please choose Profile & Settings, go to Accounts and then choose Set Primary Account.

From there you'll be able to choose the business account you'd like to use for billing.

We'll charge any fees for our business products to your billing account, as stated in the Additional Banking Services and Fees Schedule that you've previously agreed to.

I have multiple CC both personal and biz as well as a personal checking account, all accessed from my chase biz login.
the personal checking is the only option under "set primary account"

what's this about?

you can't have an ink (or other biz) card without a chase biz checking?

sorry for the n00b question:

a family is/was booked for tonight EWR-MIA on UA (award, if that matters)
weather cancellation now.
online showing no options today, a few standby tomorrow, and nothing confirmed before Wednesday.

what else can they do? can they get interlined on another carrier tonight? anything the agent will be able to help with? anything that can be done online?

Looking to buy a tricycle. what are good deals/values?

the best value//cheapest I'll find? something else better/elsewhere?

Also, we prefer not to have our downstairs neighbors start a civil war. do I need to look for air tires? are solid rubber tires quiet enough?

Tech Talk / Alternatives to Connectify?
« on: April 23, 2017, 08:59:40 PM »
got used to using windows' hosted network on win7, to have phone etc. connect to computer

Now moved to win 10. Hurdle 1: hostednetwork driver was removed, need to install win8.1 driver. accomplished.
hurdle 2: no way to keep network on 'persistent', need to restart (via cmd (!)) every time wifi restarts

connectify lite is good, except it cuts itself off every 30 min and needs to be restarted.

Any connectify type software that anyone here used satisfactorily?

Deals/Deal Requests / ISO Cheap Area-Rug/Runners
« on: October 05, 2016, 03:41:43 PM »
Been shopping for some home rugs.
(goal is to muffle tread for downstairs neighbor)
Need some larger areas, but would rather not do wall-to-wall (easier cleaning this way). ideally need some runners 2-3'*10-12' or an area rug of similar length.
also some smaller rugs.

Do these things exist for less than $50-70-100+ a piece?
e.g. I found an item like this'3%22-x-10'-/-/A-50291839
but nothing else in that range, and that one is rather thin/rough

Where do ppl get these items? are there sales to look for?

Tech Talk / New google update bricked my phone?
« on: September 01, 2016, 05:34:41 PM »
As of today my LG volt is stuck in a Bootloop of death - boot cycle keeps looping, never get's to actual working.
My phone is not rooted.
I tried hard reset; settings keeps crashing so I couldn't provision #, update PRL, or get anything working. future reboots still keep bootlooping.

Any suggestions?

Yesterday google sent out a system update (security settings and such). might that have caused it? it's the only recent change I can think of.
Or did my Cr*ppy phone just finally give out?
