Posted elsewhere, and am copying here:

FIOS uysers of Actiontec routers:

What is are the recommended firewall settings?  How does the router come from Verizon?

I was having trouble between computers in my household, and so changed the firewall settings as a test, then changed "back"to "maximum"  (I thought I had seen it set to maximum), but then I found I was having trouble connecting to my email account.

I tested with minimum and it worked, then I tested with "typical" and it worked--that is where it is, now.  Of course just from label standpoint, typical would seem to by the recommendation, but I don't want to assume.

Information and comments are appreciated.

G+ frustration:  Every link is such a popup that I can't find a place to put my mouse that I am not wasting CPU time and having obscured screen so that I can't see what I want to see

Tech folks:  I am so tired of Youtube's crashing with a Shockwave warning.  Happens frequently--especially when moving the slider.

Happens on Chrome.  Seems like Google owns them both.  Has been going on for months.

turns out the problem was Google.  I guess they are in a fight with Adobe:

I was crashing every time I tried to play a Youtube video in Chrome, and now it's fixed, thanks to a post I found in another group. easy fix... 

Open Chrome 
Open a new tab 
Type in the address bar: about:plugins 
Click on Details (top right) 
Leave enabled the entry pointing to ...\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll 
Disable the entry point to ...\Google\Chrome\Application\...\gcswf32.dll 

If you do not have the first entry, install Flash from Adobe, 

The above procedure will disable the built-in Chrome player and enable the Adobe

Adobe updates.... Is it just me, or do you folks notice that it seems Adobe thinks we want to update their formerly much needed programs almost every day?

That is why I only do it when I need to use it.

This is for my friends that are worried about their cholesterol levels--and especially those taking medicines.

Quick note:  There is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol--there is only one kind.

Can anybody help me understand:  When water evaporates, where does the energy go?

If there is a wet sponge on the table in an air conditioned house, and it evaporates, the sponge becomes cooler, but wouldn't the room itself have to become warmer to maintain conservation of energy?

OK.  That is what I thought.  The sponge becomes cooler, but if the sponge and the dry air around it were in a completely isolated system, the system itself would maintain the same average kinetic energy (heat).  And, the air's heat would go up by the amount of cooling experienced by the sponge

If you live in North Dallas, or Rockwall, or Wylie, or Garland, and need chain saws, Stihl products, Echo, etc. Then this is the only place to go.

Great products, great service, great people..

They don't deceive you into thinking you need things you don't. If your bar has another season on it, they will tell you.

Another G+ question:  Can I "post on a person's wall"?  If I think I have something that would be very interesting to them and their audience, can I post it someplace?

If somebody can explain circles to me, I would appreciate it.

It seems if I put you in a circle, and then I designate a post to share with that circle, then you can see it.

I can also filter posts to just see those sent by people in various circles.

I don't know how to do the equivalent of writing on somebody's wall--if that even makes sense

Also, I am told that if I am not in any of your circles, then I can't see any of your stuff, but is it also true that if I don't have you in any of MY circles that I can't see your posts?  ??? Especially, please comment on this--do I need you in one of my circles to see your posts??

If you know, please help

This place has A+ service among pharmacies. I have not had particularly bad service from other pharmacies so I can't say they are the best, but want to say that I am delighted every time I dialogue with them. One thing that does distinguish them is it is easy enough to talk to an actual person when calling, and they will call back.
