Technical support

Recommended Posts

Dear Admin,

 

It would helpful if more members would use this site to post how to better use new technical information so that it does not get lost in the other topical posts.

 

For example: I would like to see how to access the idea of "talking with each other in groups" and the way to access direct quotes from TUB while here posting here. Perhaps these could be put in a format that would always be there and not disappear in a few weeks, never to be found again without a lot of research through the many posts on varies topics?

 

Thank you,

 

Tech NOT SO savy,

 

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn..... like this one?:

Carolyn,

 

Did you mean by "talking with each other in groups" the idea that Gary came up with in the study group forum, using Ventrilo? Where readers can come together and talk live? In order for it to work for you, you need a headset or have a microphone hooked up to your computer.

 

You can download the Ventrilo software for free at

http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php

tutorial: http://www.ventrilo.com/tutorial.php

 

More details for setting up from this post by Gary

Thank you for your suggestion.

Dear Mario and Ellen,

 

"Thanks" to you both of you.

 

Now how do we keep these here and in a list to be used until there is an upgrade? How would others tag on with new sites?

 

Fondly,

 

Carolyn

Mario,

 

See what happened when I didn't quote Ellen and lost her sites to the the research again catagory?

 

This was a good test of what I would like to see elminated if it is at all possible. I am not internet or computer program savy at all, but I have been reading some big brains in that realm on the board of late. Help?

 

Carolyn

Carolyn and others interested in the voice opportunites,

 

This is a work in progress at this point and has not been given even a first trial run in a test environment. It is one of several classes of enhancements, both technical and administrative we hope to bring to the forum in due time under Bill's leadership.

 

Patience is the watchword at the moment.

Dear People,

 

I just got my Plantronics USB headset at Best Buy for $39.95. It is simplicity itself to follow the directions posted here by clicking links and downloading software. I just spoke for a while with Gary using Ventrillo and it sounded great. It has its limitations, but the advantages and possibilities will give us much potential to explore for user services.

 

I think this will evolve into exciting realities once more people get hooked up. There is a "lobby" which is "Urantia Study 1" which enables any Ventrillo equipped reader to speak to any other while perusing the different threads on the

different subforums. This is not now password protected. there is a subchannel which we moderators will use to have meetings for the swift adjudication and disposition of problem posters. This will be the first use and true test of this system. Then we will develop group study and educational applications. The only cost is the microphone and speakers, which most all laptops any many PC's have already. My headset is excellent quality but there are more cheaper ones available.

 

I hope you all get hooked up soon. It would be wonderful to hear the sound of your voice. You know the voice emanates from very near the seat of the soul. I would like to know all your souls much better than i am able by the dry sifting sands of many words and keystrokes.

 

 

Bill Martin
