    How do you set up for control V? I tried that and nothing happened. Fortunately the guys here helped me with this last year and I can proudly say I have captured several screen shots that I could release without harm.

    How To Fully Block Spam & Trolls & Clean Up Your Channel Comments



    https://youtu.be/yyIdV1j_gRY

    Published on Mar 24, 2015
    This video is to help other YouTube channel owners take control of their own comments. For my normal every day viewers, please do not worry. This is just me sharing some information my own subs have learned and passed on to me. I am hoping to help other channel owners by passing it on.

    Since the YT and G+ integration trolls and spammers have been running amok on our channels. It seems hopeless and nearly all control has been given to the viewer, not the channel owner.

    If you "block" someone, then you simply cannot see what they write anymore. They are "blocked" from commenting on YT and you cannot see what they write. Now why would YT add a feature that blocks you from seeing what they write if they are supposedly blocked from writing? Strange.

    Anyway, when a person is blocked they can still comment on your channel by using G+

    Truly blocking a person on your channel has now become a very complex and details process and you cannot do it alone.

    You will need help from your viewers.

    The person who starts a thread now has full control over that thread. Not you, the channel owner, but the person starting the thread.

    A person can even block you, the channel owner, from replying on their thread. On your own video!

    So the power has been given to the people. You will need the help and cooperation of your viewers to keep your channel truly clean.

    I hope this video helps some YT channel owners out there who are suffering the same fate I have been since the integration.

    How to Send Large Files
    PCMag



    Published on Apr 8, 2016
    Have you ever tried to email a file to someone only to discover that your mail service tells you it's too big? Bummer, but it's not uncommon. Most email services and software restrict the size of file attachments. For example, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook and other webmail services limit the size of an attached file to 25 megabytes. So that 500 megabyte video of the kids that you want to send to mom isn't going to get through. What are your options?

    How to Access Wikipedia Offline using Kiwix (Knowledge Prep)
    TheUrbanPrepper



    Published on Jun 23, 2016
    In this video, I will provide step by step instructions for setting up a full offline copy of Wikipedia (including images) to be used on your smartphone with the app Kiwix. This will allow you to access the full Wikipedia catalogue during a “Grid Down” situation, when the internet is no longer available for whatever reason. The most important preps are Knowledge and Skills. You can preserve much of human knowledge, which has been documented on Wikipedia, and have it stored on a tiny MicroSD card. This card can then be accessible from your smartphone, laptop, tablet or other computer system. Enjoy!

    STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
    1) Purchase large capacity MicroSD Card (preferably 128 GB): http://amzn.to/28QK39n
    2) Insert MicroSD with adapter into computer
    3) Right-click the MicroSD card, view Properties and ensure that it is formatted to a non-FAT32 partition (e.g., exFAT). Reformat the card if needed.
    4) Go to Kiwix website: http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Main_Page
    5) Select the “Download Wikipedia” button. Download will take several hours.
    6) After download has completed, extract the ZIP file to the MicroSD card.
    7) Go to the Kiwix Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
    8) Install the Kiwix app to your device.
    9) Power down the mobile device.
    10) Insert the MicroSD card into the SD tray of the mobile device.
    11) Power up the mobile device. The device may take a few moments to configure the MicroSD for use.1
    12) Open the Kiwix app
    13) Configure Kiwix to use the Wikipedia ZIM file on the MicroSD by selecting the SD Card Icon and then selecting the correct storage path.
    14) To verify Offline functionality, put your device into Airplane Mode (which disables Wi-Fi and data)
    15) Once in Airplane Mode, do a Wikipedia Search using Kiwix for any topic.
    16) Verify that Kiwix opens the page for the searched item even when the device is in Airplane Mode
    17) Congratulations. You now have a complete copy of Wikipedia, with images, stored offline on your mobile device. With or without internet access, all of the knowledge and data available on Wikipedia is now accessible to you at any time.

    Make sure you contribute to the folks at Wikipedia who maintain this crucial website for all of us to enjoy and learn from.
