General Discussion / COSTCO has 256GB flashdrives for $30.00.
« on: August 10, 2016, 07:57:50 PM »
Today, I bought a 256GB SanDisk Cruzer Glide 3.0 (USB 3.0 and backward compatible with 2.0) Flash Drive at the Salem, Oregon, COSTCO for $29.99. It came pre-formated at FAT32 though, and read out as only 250GB. It is basically a storage drive as advertised, and has secure file encryption and password protection with included SanDisk Secure Access software. 

Alan previously mentioned some potentially more suitable flash drives for all purpose usage: http://www.slolug.com/links.html

Microsoft won't fix Windows flaw that lets hackers steal your username and password (?).

Chrome and Firefox users apparently are not effected.

Get an Alert Whenever You Press the Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or Num Lock Keys in Windows

Be sure to note the concluding message at the bottom of the article:


https://www.maketecheasier.com/alert-cap-lock-key-windows/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=18062016

"Conclusion:
These steps are how you can save yourself from annoying capitalization, just by turning on an alert for caps lock (activates the alert for all three keys: num lock, caps lock and scroll lock). I recommend you try holding the Num Lock key depressed for five full seconds to turn this feature on in any version of Windows. Only manually turn it on if the shortcut is disabled or if you canít use the the Num Lock key for some reason."
