Re: Welcome to the new decade

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi group,

I will be ready to wish everybody a happy new decade in precisely one year from now.  The actual fact is that the new decade (the 2020's) does not scientifically start until 12:00 AM January 1, 2021.  The simple fact is that there is nor has there ever been a year zero.  Therefore, when you begin numbering years, it is just as if you are counting any object such as dollars, chickens or daffodils.  You don't have ten of them until you actually have ten in hand. 

Arthur C. Clark the author of 2001 A Space Odyssey predicted this in his 1968 novel of the same name, written concurrently with the production of Stanley Kubrick's movie production. 

In that book, Clark projects that people would celebrate the turn of the millennium on January 1, 2000 rather than when it should be celebrated on January 1, 2001.  This prediction came true--exactly as Clark described it.

So it is with this idea of the beginning of a decade.  So long story short: the decade ain't over until it's over on January 1, 2001.

Because:

1.  Virtually all updates to any program you can name involve at least some security patches, and e-mail clients have had plenty of those.

2.  The first thing you're going to be asked if you seek support, for anything, is, "Are you on the latest version?," and being told to do that first.

There is virtually no reason to not keep your programs and add-ons up-to-date.  It's best practice to do this.

I wanted to confirm that this latest version of the addon does indeed work with Thunderbird 68.3.0. It is an absolute joy to have this capability.

Just one more example of what I say from time to time.  Why update programs just because updates are available?  There are programs that should be updated, such as browsers for security reasons and because, given enough time, increasingly more sites won’t work with an old browser that hasn’t been updated for a long time.  But e-mail is an old protocol and it is unlikely you will have security problems or vulnerabilities if you don’t update for a good while. 
 
Of course, a program may have features you want in an upgraded version but if you are just using Thunderbird for mail, I doubt that new features for e-mail have been added for a long time.

My Thunderbird updated today and after word this extension no longer works.  I looked at the add on manager and it says it is no longer compatible with Thunderbird.


I thought I'd mention this since some of us use this extension.  What a pain.

Re: NVDA and tablets

Hi.
Hmmm. I sometimes have trouble with this myself, especially with more than two fingers. Try turning input help mode on by double tapping the screen with two fingers. I find the input mode useful as it tells you what the touch gestures do, if anything. And it's a great way to practice using multi-finger gestures, you won't have to worry about accidently clicking on anything when input help is on. Hope this helps.
Regards
Molly

However, it's split into 2 lines, so copy both lines, and paste it into the web-browser's address bar, then it should work.
