    .

    I did not say that right. Technically, there is right click but it does not do much & I cannot get a menu.

    I certainly would not call it equivalent to right mouse click.

    It's more the way it is being stored in order to be displayed - admittedly, it doesn't appear it is being broadcast plain text but... yikes.

    That's it!!!

    Ahhh. Only kidding.
    Well, it's been over 2 weeks since I got this tablet working again. Maybe it will keep going until I work something out.

    Murphy's Law should have been named after me.

    Sometimes I read the forum on the laptop computer & I have to resist replying. I need to use the other name only in this thread. I don't want anyone to think it is a sock puppet.
    Hey! I just thought of how I can get 11,000 likes!
    Ha! JUST kidding.

    But it would take me much longer than that to remember it.

    But... but they say long an a random-mix is best.!!!
    One thang you can do is to print a list of you'r PW's an tape it to you'r computer.!!!

    It takes me 30 sec (if i dont mess up) to enter the PW to log on to my computer.!!!

    I remenber the good ol days when simpler an easy to remenber stuff like "passworD"... "123abc"... "ImRuggedlyHansome" an "ImAGenious" worked real good.!!!

    I don't know what they have on me. They posted one spurious message on Facebook and sent a bunch of emails from my account.

    Mayb it was just a fat-fangered looney old lady who accidently typed you'r PW an means no harm.!!!

    Kinda like phone calls i get on a regular basis which consist of stuff like... eat sht an die... fug you... etc... an then they hang up.!!!

    You should have just posted the combination on the door of the safe. Then you'd still have the safe.

    It was a key lock. Also, I'd rather them go thru the time, trouble & energy of getting it open only to find nothing valuable. Hopefully. someone broke a finger. Plus they'd be more noticeable with the safe. Now I need a witness to come forward.

    I guess it's good I got this tablet working again but while it was cheaper & good to have when I had nothing else, now that I have a laptop computer, this tablet is a huge frigging pain in the butt.
