Solved! Easier way to add TV Shows to Plex with no renaming



Some Notes


  • I have a tv show on my plex media server hard drive that has four seasons. 
  • I want to keep my conventional folder naming style for Windows. That is, I have four folders for the four seasons, and then each episode has the episode number and name the way I want it
  • I tried to put the four folders into a Plex TV Shows folder, but got no luck. My googling also showed that I would have to use a specific naming convention, which I don't want to do.

Solution
  1. I ditched the Plex TV Shows folder
  2. I created a Plex Personal Video folder instead
  3. I named the playlist the name of my tv show
  4. I found a way to add all four folders at once to the playlist
  5. As a result, I can watch all the episode without them stopping after each one

Thank you for contacting us.
The "My Settings" page is working. Please make sure there is no issue with your computer. Please close and then start again. There is only room for two phone numbers, and the system cannot take a duplicate number.
As far as Quicken, there was a security breach about two-three weeks ago on Quicken and QuickBooks. That is why now there is an additional security verification code.

Solved! But I don't know how: Quicken was asking me for my bank's registration code every time I ran One Step Update



Quicken was asking me for my bank's registration code every time I ran One Step Update. And I discvered it was a spurious window, because I could cancel out of the window and it proceed with the One Step Update.

But then if I initiate a new One Step Update, it would come back.

I thought I fixed it by clearing cache and cookies in Chrome, but it came back.

So then I uninstalled and reinstalled Quicken. That fixed it but it came back

Then it offered the latest update which I took, but it still failed after the latest update

Then I rebooted again.

Now it's working. I have no idea why.

 

Solved! Gdrive sharing not including some subfolders



Facts


  1. I had created a top level folder in gdrive and moved all my folders into it. That way, I could share the entire top level folder with one particular person
  2. But I found that only some of the subfolders got shared
  3. No amount of googling found me this problem or any answer
  4. I finally decided to try just re-creating new subfolders and moving all the contents. Then I deleted the old, empty, and what-I-consider-to-be-corrupted folders. Easy Peasy
  5. Now all the subfolders are properly shared

 

Solved! Quickly and easily learn who has access to anything on your Gdrive



  1. Run https://www.whohasaccess.com
  2. Wait for the results
  3. Click on any picture to drill down on what they have access to
  4. When you're done, remember to press the button that deletes all your info from the whohasacess server

Solved! Pedometers not working on Moto Z4



When trying yet another pedometer app (this one is called "Pedometer - Step Counter" I did this

  1. My profile
  2. How to fix the "stop counting steps" issue
  3. Update settings
  4. Next
  5. Go to set
  6. All apps
  7. Pedometer - Step Counter (or whatever is the name of your pedometer)
  8. Battery optimization
  9. Click "ALL APPS" this is important
  10. Click on don't optimize


So then I figured out how to get right to "Battery Optimization." Just go to settings, and type into the search "battery optimization."

My final solution

What I really like is Walklogger. So I uninstalled the other one, installed Walklogger, went to settings, "battery optimization," clicked "all apps," found Walklogger, and clicked "don't optimize."


I emailed Joe Rossi this morning





I emailed Joe Rossi this morning. I should have done it sooner, but I sat on it.
Subject: A different perspective on the comment made by Jennifer Hewitt Bishop
Hello. I'm a person who lives in Jersey City (a city considered the second most diverse in our country). I may have a different perspective on what Jennifer Hewitt Bishop said, and which I hope you will take a few moments to consider, just as I have taken a few moments to construct this email for you.
Her comment, although not well constructed, may be an attempt at being diversity-minded and descriptive, with no real intent of judgment. I ran across the following article which describes cultural differences in parenting, and which illustrates my point. Here's just one quote, but I hope you read the article "Both in Japan and Norway, parents are focused on cultivating independence. Children do things alone early, whether it’s walking to school or to the movies."


When people make comments that sound racist, sometimes those comments are indeed racist. But don't we need to ask them first "what did you mean by that"? After all, acknowledging cultural differences is not only not racist, but inclusive. It's a slippery area.
I realize that to consider this perspective can cause political problems. But isn't it the right thing to do anyway? Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this view.
Sincerely, Mrs. Linda Moran
