RE: Where's the old threads?

I just used 'fisherguy wfco' and got hits. Using the 'rv.net' search criteria limits returned results to the forum. When I use your method, I also received results from other websites?

RE: Where's the old threads?

My conjecture is that the even though the database records exist, advanced search is not retrieving them due to an issue with the legacy forum software? It's likely the result of the forum software no longer auto archiving threads. Forum search is not returning these records as one of the criteria is threads tagged archived? I would think removing this criteria from advanced search, and simply return records that are over one-year old would fix the issue? Use Google Search in this format: site:rv.net Fisherguy In many cases, Google Search will return a text or print version of the thread? In order to see the original forum thread, just append the end of the URL by removing "/print/true": BEFORE: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29272123/print/true.cfm AFTER: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29272123.cfm You can use Google to further refine your search criteria.

RE: T mobile internet

BTW, I cut the cord nearly 15 years ago. Got tired of poor customer service, and never ending increasing fees from cable operators. Too much a monopoly in my area, no incentive to improve? Have been wireless since. With a number of streaming services available, not an issue for some time now.

RE: T mobile internet

I also have a T-Mobile 4G LTE biz account at home, using a four antenna Ethernet/WiFi router - it has a SIM card slot. It's been very reliable for years, though have seen an occasional drop-out since T-Mobile pushed out a network enhancement a few months ago. May have had something to do with 5G upgrades? https://testmy.net/TLXsGWaH_.jdV4B80Jh.png Upload speeds have also been somewhat erratic lately which is of some concern as I work remotely for now. I got grandfathered into this account, paying $79. month w/250G 4G data/month. It's now $249. month w/200G 4G. Ironically, I've found Verizon Visible service faster with no 4G LTE data caps, and less expensive at $40. month? I use it for travel, and as a backup to T-Mobile to offer some insurance that I can continue teleworking should there be an outage on one network.

RE: HP Compaq NX9600 -- Adding Memory

Unless the OP wants to engage in a science project, my guess is that WIN 10 hardware check will fail its supported hardware requirements, and will not install. The issues are not just related to the legacy P4 processor? But also to hardware devices that are built into the laptop motherboard. If this was a P4 desktop, you might be able to get WIN 10 to install by upgrading select supported hardware, assuming that the P4 processor passes WIN 10 hardware check. You rarely have upgrade device options with laptop motherboards.

RE: HP Compaq NX9600 -- Adding Memory

Compaq doesn't provide drivers for WIN 10/WIN 7 for the NX9600. So basically wasting your time/money purchasing any upgrades for this project. Not surprising for a 2005 era laptop? Best just recycle it? Performance on WIN 10 with just 2G memory would be pretty pathetic? Even if just browsing the Net as memory usage tends to rise with all the integrated website media/scripting and multiple tabs open. I generally install at least 16G+ memory on all my WIN 10 notebooks/desktops, so long as memory is not soldered into the motherboard - something to check with notebooks? You should be able to find a good used more recent notebook, with a much faster processor such as a core i5, with WIN 10 already installed. Possibly also with an SSD for around $200. Umm, yeah, right.. You do realize that you CAN work around the lack of driver support by using the driver INF files from OLDER OS? INF files are a text file which IDs the hardware brand and model, then tells the OS what GENERIC WINDOWS DRIVER TO USE! YES, I HAVE DONE THIS so I do know it works! You've used 'modified' legacy drivers with WIN 10 install? Interesting since Microsoft instituted Driver Signature Enforcement, WIN 10 won't load un-signed kernal-level drivers? Represents a security issue?

RE: T mobile internet

You may want to look at Verizon's own Visible Mobile unlimited everything, which also has no 4G LTE data caps. Nor currently imposing speed restrictions so long as you keep the account active. It also allows hotspot. Though only a limited number of smartphones are currently compatible? In any case, Verizon is likely to have better coverage than other mobile providers? The last speed test I did: My iPhone 4G LTE https://i.imgur.com/NCpaReI.png From my Dell PC using hotspot https://i.imgur.com/RbPMhQM.jpg

RE: HP Compaq NX9600 PATA to SSD 120 Gb

I've not read the comments, so this may already be covered? You can get a decent HP or Dell Intel core i5 laptop from biz off-lease for $100. I've done so in the past, the HP notebook I bought was virtually flawless. Generally, they come without HD/SSD for security reasons. Some come with WIN OS license key stickers, though likely WIN 7 at this stage. I wouldn't even consider using a Pentium based processor PC. Never heard of a PATA SSD, which would be moot as they won't support anywhere near today's SSD speeds. You also get into Bios compatibility issues with old hardware. You're basically just asking for unnecessary frustrations with trying to upgrade an old Pentium notebook. Not to mention, if you're connecting to the internet, you should not be using any OS not security patch supported. Hackers can gain access to your system through vulnerabilities without any indication that they are doing so. This could give them access to other computers on your home network? Instead, just buy a WIN 10 license key. You don't need the install disc, as you can download the full WIN 10 image free directly from Microsoft. Using the option to create a bootable USB flash install drive is generally the easiest method.

RE: Anybody Remember These RV.net Stickers?

I remember when RV.NET stickers were given away at their exhibit booth at FMCA Rallys. Still have my polo shirt with this logo.

RE: Facebook to Begin Charging $2.99 Per Month on Nov. 1?

This topic should have been archived automatically. Something else not working with the forum software? In any case, thread closed.

RE: SSD Storage

As mentioned, my guess is either the external SSD drives needs to be formatted or even first partitioned? Right-mouse click on WIN 10 Start icon, and select 'Disk Management'. Check first to see if the drive shows up? https://i.imgur.com/3AF39HI.png

RE: Spell Check ??

The forum's spell check does not work. Chrome's spell check works for me.

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

I just recently activated Verizon's Visible service on my iPhone. Mainly as backup mobile data to my T-Mobile biz router, since I work 100% remote until the near future. Been surprised by Visible's 4G speeds, faster than my biz mobile account. https://i.imgur.com/VoXSlwul.png 'alt=""' Visible iPhone 4G data speed https://i.imgur.com/AYXf9Oil.png 'alt=""' Visible iPhone hotspot 4G speed

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

You'll be fine for some time. 5G is still in its deployment stage. In my opinion, it's more a marketing tool for now? I would think, most want the advertised 20x 4G speeds, though there are considerable challenges to 5G "high" coverage? Namely, that it requires direct line of sight, and signal interference can be caused by common obstacles such as trees and buildings. Plus, 5G high may not be able penetrate through walls? Bottom-line, 5G requires installation of significantly more closer spaced, directional antennas? I've inquired at my office about pursuing 5G antenna leasing to mobile providers on top of our building, as we are located in an exclusive area often in the national spotlight. Considering, our city is not permitting install of 5G antennas on light poles. We currently lease 4G access space, though requires a costly portable trailer for service providers.

RE: Notification email link does not work

My guess is that your thread was deleted as it didn't have an actual title? Not a realistic way of Search to index the subject of your post? You also posted the thread twice? Just make sure you edit your original thread, and not create a new thread when making additions? You can always re-post a new thread with a descriptive title this time, such as 'Getting my TC feet wet again'?

RE: Good Sam Badge Update

I believe it should have updated automatically, though will move you to Good Sam forum to research further?

RE: cut and paste no longer works when posting?

Some years ago, I was using a Firefox extension that allowed you to use an external app such as MS Word, to write your post. When you clicked on the forum's 'Reply-to-Topic' link, you would see an additional icon in the text-area. Clicking the icon would launch MS Word, allowing you to compose your forum post. When you saved or closed MS Word, it would automatically paste the contents back into the forum's reply-to-topic editor. Was very handy, though no longer available as changes in browser security prevented it working solely as a browser extension?

RE: Laptop Shuts Off

A motherboard component failure can also cause laptop to randomly shutdown/reboot? Try running the laptop in WIN10 (?) Safe Mode, and see if it still exhibiting the same issue? I would recommend going into 'Event Viewer' and look at Windows logs for errors at the time of the shutdown/reboots? Though may be confusing to decipher if not used to reading such errors? In fact, I created a custom view in mine that basically filters for errors to quickly view any issues?

RE: Seen a Good Movie Lately?

Never heard of "Let Me In"? Shoot I watched the original Swedish version: "Let the Right One In", and I'll have to say the American remake is very good. I have both versions on Blu-ray, and also liked Matt Reeves remake "Let Me In" better. Also, read the novel its based on, though don't recommend it. Was beyond my comfort zone, and glad neither filmmaker followed the novel too closely? I've read the Christopher Priest novel "The Prestige" a couple of times, which goes in a different direction from the movie. Though also quite interesting in its own right?
