Hi Ralph,

Thanks for your offer. Lets wait for a bit and see if I can be sure that it isn't something that I am doing. If it continues, we might set up a second account just to see if it happens with that one also. More than likely, I am the culprit, if no one else is having this problem. I will keep you posted.

Thanks for your help.

Doug

PS: I just logged out OK, without mishap. It might be that I was mouse clicking too fast when the error message occurred.

Hello Doug,


Perhaps the reason that I have never experienced the Session Verification Failed message is that I never log out from the SLO Bytes Bulletin Board and rarely shut down my main computer other than for necessary updates that require rebooting.  If you like, I can create a new user account for you for experimentation.  Maybe it won't give you the same alarming message when you log out.


Please let me know if you'd like me to set it up.

Ralph, It happened again. The error message offers a "back" click option, which I took and then logged out again and got the same error message. So, I clicked the "Home" button and logged out just fine. It appears that this is not causing me any problems, other than wondering about it. I had just finished adding the post on installing programs in WIN10 on other drives (or partitions) and moving installed drives (nice). Usually, this message comes up as I log out after putting up a posting.

So, there you have it. Doesn't seem to be anything to worry about as I can exit by clicking on "Home", from within the error message screen.

Ralph, as long as this isn't a problem, I guess there is no need to be concerned about it. If there are any further aspects to this, I will let you know.  Doug

A snipping of the error message is attached.

General Discussion / How to Install Modern Apps on an External Drive in Windows 10.

How to Install Modern Apps on an External Drive in Windows 10 (This includes moving an installed application to another partition or drive, and back again, if you change your mind). Very convenient!

General Discussion / Media Server with RaspberryPi
« Last post by rsutter on January 16, 2016, 04:05:19 PM »
Hello All,
 
 When the power supply failed on my digital picture frame, I decided to create my own using a standard monitor and a low-power computer.

 
 I purchased a 22" Viewsonic LED monitor and a Raspberry Pi 2 kit.
 
 I assembled the Raspberry Pi, installed OpenELEC/Kodi and mounted the monitor on the VESA articulating arm that had previously held the digital picture frame.
 
 The Raspberry Pi has both WiFi and Ethernet connections.  I used WiFi to connect to my media server and then set up Kodi to play music and run slide shows with still images and video.  Since the monitor has a built in speaker, I am able to feed sound to the monitor through the HDMI cable.
 
 While I still have some setup to do in order to create recurrent displays, I'm very satisfied with the results so far.
 
 I've included links to the hardware below
 
 http://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-kits   $69.99
 
 ViewSonic VA2265smh 22-Inch SuperClear MVA LED Monitor (Full HD 1080p, HDMI/VGA, Integrated Speakers, Flicker Free)
$128.52

General Discussion / Re: stockplop External USB 3.0 SSD & HDD Enclosure
« Last post by dickJ on January 15, 2016, 09:55:59 PM »
I got interested in the Sabrent enclosure because of prior use of Alan R recommended Sabrent enclosures which have been great.  However, in reading the reviews of this new one, I find many references to its plastic construction and parts breakage.  I guess I would prefer something better, even though I don't usually change the hard drive until it dies! Any suggestions for a better modestly priced SSD enclosure would be appreciated! I like having the light and switch and I have been known to drop the case so I guess a metal enclosure is necessary for me!
This Sabrent looks better, but again there were a number of repeating problems in the Reviews.

How does this differ from the Sabrent enclosure for $12.99?

It's substantially easier to switch multiple drives with the stockplop. If you only have one drive to connect them the Sabrent is a more economical solution.

Hi Ralph,

I just logged out twice with no problems. If it happens again, I will let you know what was going on.

Thanks,

Doug
