LISTSERV

Know what this is.

Wikipedia explains:

The term Listserv (written by the registered trademark licensee, L-Soft International, Inc., as LISTSERV) has been used to refer to a few early electronic mailing list software applications, allowing a sender to send one email to the list, and then transparently sending it on to the addresses of the subscribers to the list.
The original Listserv software, the Bitnic Listserv (also known as BITNIC LISTSERV) (1984–1986), allowed mailing lists to be implemented on IBM VM mainframes and was developed by Ira Fuchs, Daniel Oberst, and Ricky Hernandez in 1984. This mailing list service was known as Listserv@Bitnic (also known as LISTSERV@BITNIC) and quickly became a key service on the BITNET network. It provided functionality similar to a UNIX Sendmail alias and, as with Sendmail, subscriptions were managed manually.

Talklist is one listserve service.
There is lsoft.com.
Freelists.com is free.
Simplelists.com.
Librelist.com.

TRANSCEND SD CARDS

Last post was about SanDisk cards.  This post mentions Transcend cards.  I am trying to find a way to retrieve data on a card before I format the card, which means a complete erasure of that data.  I don't want to lose that data, so I contacted Transcend.  They do not have a chat feature, but you can contact them via email or by phone.  I prefer chat.  It's immediate.  Problems generally get solved there and then. 

I have covered this topic of recovering data from a card prior to formatting it before.  See here.

SANDISK MICRO CARD for DASHCAM
I am having a heck of a time getting a SanDisk micro card to work in my dashcam.  So I contacted SanDisk and used their chat service.














These instructions were pretty good, but obviously not good enough since I am still getting the same message of "Please insert card" on my dashcam.

















Here is the dashcam on eBay. Turns out that the reason why the 64GB Ultra Sandisk card would not register in the camera shown above is that that camera supports only 32GB.  That's too bad.  I spent money on a card I cannot use.
