Are you needing to contact Amazon seller support phone number? If you need immediate assistance with Amazon seller support you can dial toll free 1-866-216-1072. Then you want to dial the number 0 for you to contact an operator.
Now you will want to ask for the correct Amazon support department. For example seller account or individual account support. You may have to wait on hold, until an Amazon customer service representative answers your telephone call.
Also, you can submit an Amazon support request form online. You will want to choose the correct category and subcategory of your problem, if necessary. You may be prompted to log into your Amazon account.
Amazon support can be quite difficult to contact, as some of their telephone numbers are not necessarily posted out in the open so to speak on their Amazon.com website. However, if you perform enough Internet searches, you may stumble upon more detailed contact information. Also, what I noticed with Amazon, is that many of their support web pages with more detailed information, are only accessible with an Amazon account.
Another issue with Amazon support in general, is that some areas of their website may not be linked to from their main Amazon website or even a subdomain like sellercentral.amazon.com. What I mean is that certain areas of their support website(s) are hidden in plain site. You may not be required to log into your Amazon account to access a certain area.
However, it is not really linked to or advertised so to speak from main Amazon website(s). For example if you could not get a hold of a live Amazon seller customer service support agent, you could submit your problem in their Amazon seller forums. You will need to log in with your Amazon account in order to submit a new post however.
I have actually sold some items on Amazon before. Believe it or not I have sold books on Amazon as a computer technician. Also, I have sold some desktop computers on Amazon.
Amazon is actually quite easy to sell on. Most items already have a template listing. You can add additional informaiton and even photographs to your listing.
I had to call into Amazon seller support one time. Some clown on Amazon was demanding that I refund their money and allow them to keep an item. This was early on when I first started selling items on Amazon.
I called into their seller central customer service via the telephone number I gave you earlier in this article, to receive further information. It turned out that I did not need to allow the customer to keep the item, as well as refund their entire payment. Chances are it was some scam artist, that was trying to receive an item for free.
Anyways, I had to perform some Internet searches in order to find the Amazon seller support phone number to begin with. This was perplexing to me as I thought it should be readily available on one of their main web pages. When I did call into Amazon seller support, I did have to wait on hold.
However, their customer service agent was very helpful. I have not sold any items on Amazon in a few years now. I will give you one tip that I learned when selling items on Amazon.
Depending on the category, you can receive more money for your item(s) on Amazon compared to eBay or even Craigslist. I was able to sell used computers on Amazon and received quite a bit more money than I had when I sold used computers on Craigslist and eBay. The same exact model of computer or quite close to is more valuable on Amazon.
It may depend on the category, subcategory, niche, etc. but quite often I received more compensation for items on Amazon compared to Craigslist and eBay. Amazon also does not require that you have feedback. eBay can be a pain in the ass to sell on as a beginner because buyers seem to think you need feedback to become a legitimate seller.
Amazon buyers don’t care if you have feedback or not. Amazon buyers can leave feedback, but many did not, when I sold items. Hopefully, you are able to contact Amazon seller support phone number.
While I am not a fan of any type of government. I have begun to receive questions on this third party website where by I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions pertaining to this alleged covid 19 coronavirus pandemic. One question I am now receiving is how do I perform a Covid 19 stimulus check status update.
The United States of America’s Internal Revenue Service actually has an online tool that you can use to check the status of your economic impact stimulus check or payment. You can check on the status of your impact payment check online via this Covid 19 stimulus check status online tool.
You will see the following warning message:

You will want to click on the “OK” button. Then you will want to enter in your social security number or tax identification number, your birth date, your street address, and finally your zip code or postal code. Now you will want to click on the “Continue” button.
Continue with any remaining prompts. Get my payment is the only official United States of America government website to obtain your economic stimulus payment status. Also, there is a spanish version of this page by clicking on “Español”.

0:08:22.560,0:08:29.599 you file your tax return
0:08:26.560,0:08:31.520 and then it’ll come with that
0:08:29.599,0:08:32.959 as a payment but you can still check the
0:08:31.520,0:08:36.399 stats or
0:08:32.959,0:08:37.839 you file as a non-filer and then
0:08:36.399,0:08:38.880 if you’re wondering where why you
0:08:37.839,0:08:40.000 haven’t received your twelve hundred

Virtualbox installation on Linux is quite easy. You can install this free software from Oracle on most Linux distributions. This quick tutorial will cover how to install Virtualbox on MX Linux 19.1 on a command line via a terminal application.
You will want to log in with your root account credentials. Then type in this following command:
apt-get install virtualbox
You will be asked if you want to install virtualbox along with these additional software packges.
Then you just type y for yes. Now you can sit back and relax while virtualbox downloads and installs. You do not need to add any additional repository to install Oracle virtualbox on MX Linux 19.1.
Eventually, 4 virtualbox processes will attempt to start. If any of these 4 processes fail, then it is possible that either virtualization is not enabled in your computer’s basic input output system or that your computer’s microprocessor does not support virtualization. If all four processes start with a green OK response, then you are all completed with virtualbox installation on Linux.
Now you just browse to “Accessories” and then scroll down that list until you see virtualbox. The graphical user interface should open up. These instructions were written for a computer with MX Linux 19.1 operating system installed.
Also, MX Linux is a Debian derivation Linux distribution. You could use these instructions for other Debian based operating systems. However, you may or may not need to add a repository, in order for it to become available for install.
You can also install virtualbox via the MX Package Installer tool. You would just look for virtualbox and then click on install. I almost never install software on Linux via a package manager unless I need to install non-standard software.
The command line way of install software with apt is so easy that why bother. However, it can be performed this way. One final tip.
If you run into problems installing virtualbox, make sure that your microprocessor supports virtualization and or is enabled in the computer basic input output system. Now you can install a myriad of different operating systems in your virtual machine environment. No more dual booting and or partitioning hard drive space for your operating systems.
Virtualbox Installation on Linux – MX Linux 19.1 Video Transcript
0:00:02.800,0:00:09.040 all righty let’s cut to the chase
0:00:04.720,0:00:12.080 so i’ve been wanting to install
0:00:09.040,0:00:13.920 oracle’s virtualbox for a while now but
0:00:12.080,0:00:16.760 i had a quad-core computer believe it or
0:00:13.920,0:00:19.439 not that the processor did not support
0:00:16.760,0:00:21.039 virtualization so you’ll have to stick
0:00:19.439,0:00:22.960 around during my video where i give you
0:00:21.039,0:00:24.800 some tips to save you time
0:00:22.960,0:00:27.359 to make sure that you have the you know
0:00:24.800,0:00:28.640 the right type of computer that supports
0:00:28.640,0:00:31.679 so i’m going to demonstrate on this live
0:00:30.160,0:00:34.000 stream how to install
0:00:31.679,0:00:34.960 oracle’s virtualbox it’s really not that
0:00:34.960,0:00:38.480 on linux and more specifically
0:00:38.480,0:00:47.200 mx linux 19.1 which is a debian
0:00:43.120,0:00:50.480 derivation distribution of linux
0:00:47.200,0:00:52.160 here we go so
0:00:50.480,0:00:53.840 you’re going to install i’m going to
0:00:52.160,0:00:54.559 show you how to install it via command
0:00:54.559,0:00:59.359 click on the link in the blog post in
0:00:58.000,0:00:59.920 the description box of this youtube
0:00:59.920,0:01:03.600 that’ll take you to my website in a
0:01:01.280,0:01:05.280 computers.com well i will have
0:01:03.600,0:01:07.360 full written instructions in the
0:01:05.280,0:01:10.479 abstract for you
0:01:07.360,0:01:11.439 alright so let me transition so you’re
0:01:11.439,0:01:15.920 obviously use a terminal in linux you
0:01:14.159,0:01:18.400 can you can use it via the
0:01:15.920,0:01:20.560 on mx linux there’s a package manager
0:01:18.400,0:01:22.880 i’m not going to show you that
0:01:20.560,0:01:24.720 for me it’s much easier just to use a
0:01:22.880,0:01:28.880 command line but you can certainly
0:01:24.720,0:01:32.000 use you know the package manager
0:01:28.880,0:01:35.600 so it’s real simple and
0:01:32.000,0:01:37.360 what we’re going to do is
0:01:35.600,0:01:39.119 youtube is not receiving enough video to
0:01:37.360,0:01:40.880 maintain smooth streaming well i don’t
0:01:39.119,0:01:43.360 give a shit about youtube
0:01:40.880,0:01:44.880 really i mean it’s a live stream my
0:01:43.360,0:01:48.159 encoder says that i am
0:01:44.880,0:01:51.360 streaming just fine it’s green
0:01:48.159,0:01:53.360 it’s 16 it’s over 16
0:01:51.360,0:01:55.280 what is it kilobits per second oh yeah
0:01:53.360,0:01:58.000 i’ve got plenty of bandwidth i don’t
0:01:55.280,0:02:00.240 fuck youtube all right i i’m also
0:01:58.000,0:02:02.159 recording this video just in case
0:02:00.240,0:02:03.759 so all you’re going to do is type this
0:02:02.159,0:02:07.439 command apt
0:02:03.759,0:02:11.520 get install
0:02:07.439,0:02:11.520 virtual box like this
0:02:17.760,0:02:23.440 and then hit enter and
0:02:21.680,0:02:25.040 it’s virtual and then it’s going to ask
0:02:25.040,0:02:28.560 now here’s some other additional
0:02:26.720,0:02:32.720 packages so it’s going to
0:02:28.560,0:02:32.959 want to install lib for library library
0:02:32.959,0:02:38.400 soap which is an acronym
0:02:36.080,0:02:39.519 microsoft needs to clean themselves up
0:02:38.400,0:02:42.480 with some soap but
0:02:39.519,0:02:42.959 linux yeah linux isn’t perfect but you
0:02:42.959,0:02:49.519 what i’m saying library vnc server one
0:02:46.000,0:02:50.879 virtual box dash dcms and virtualbox
0:02:49.519,0:02:54.080 dash guest additions
0:02:50.879,0:02:55.200 dash iso and then virtualbox qd along
0:02:54.080,0:02:58.640 with vd2
0:02:55.200,0:02:58.640 so i’m going to say yes
0:02:59.120,0:03:06.560 and this is it that’s it now i’m using
0:03:02.239,0:03:08.319 mx linux 19.1 i did not have to add any
0:03:06.560,0:03:11.120 special repository
0:03:08.319,0:03:12.800 sometimes in linux you have to and let
0:03:11.120,0:03:13.280 me make sure that i’m screen capturing
0:03:13.280,0:03:17.280 terminal window okay and i did increase
0:03:15.040,0:03:18.080 the font to make sure that you could see
0:03:18.080,0:03:21.680 you know what i’m saying it’s a it’s a
0:03:21.680,0:03:25.760 16 size font in the terminal window it
0:03:24.640,0:03:27.519 takes a little while
0:03:25.760,0:03:30.080 it’s downloading the packages let me
0:03:27.519,0:03:32.720 give you some tips
0:03:30.080,0:03:33.519 on mx linux i did not have to add any
0:03:33.519,0:03:36.720 repository now if you use now you can
0:03:36.720,0:03:43.280 this video to install virtualbox oracle
0:03:40.080,0:03:46.959 on other linux distributions
0:03:43.280,0:03:50.560 if they are debian derivation
0:03:46.959,0:03:52.400 like ubuntu or you know debian itself
0:03:50.560,0:03:54.239 you probably don’t have to add any
0:03:52.400,0:03:55.519 additional repository
0:03:54.239,0:03:58.840 but i don’t know that know that for a
0:03:55.519,0:04:01.280 fact if you’re gonna use
0:03:58.840,0:04:04.720 the yum
0:04:01.280,0:04:06.799 which is on the linux distributions
0:04:04.720,0:04:08.640 based upon red hat linux
0:04:06.799,0:04:10.560 the instructions are different this
0:04:08.640,0:04:13.519 video probably wouldn’t help you
0:04:10.560,0:04:14.799 you know i’m saying maybe maybe not
0:04:13.519,0:04:17.759 linux commands are
0:04:14.799,0:04:20.720 pretty similar some of them are the same
0:04:17.759,0:04:24.639 across the different distributions
0:04:20.720,0:04:27.520 so here’s some additional tips
0:04:24.639,0:04:28.800 you’re going to need a computer with a
0:04:28.800,0:04:33.840 that supports virtualization
0:04:32.240,0:04:36.000 now you can go into your bios i’m not
0:04:33.840,0:04:36.560 going to talk about going into your bios
0:04:36.000,0:04:37.919 i just
0:04:36.560,0:04:40.080 want to show you how to install
0:04:37.919,0:04:40.800 virtualbox you know i’m doing this on a
0:04:40.080,0:04:42.960 live stream
0:04:40.800,0:04:44.880 performing this on a live stream that’s
0:04:42.960,0:04:46.960 going to be recorded
0:04:44.880,0:04:48.479 youtube is they’re they’re fucks fuck
0:04:46.960,0:04:50.720 ups and
0:04:48.479,0:04:52.320 rece i don’t want to digress about the
0:04:50.720,0:04:54.320 just bullshit now that
0:04:52.320,0:04:57.040 that you have to deal with when you live
0:04:54.320,0:05:00.479 stream and anyways i don’t know
0:04:57.040,0:05:00.479 i want to get into the details
0:05:02.240,0:05:06.560 the possible easiest way is to find out
0:05:06.560,0:05:11.120 the model of your processor is let’s say
0:05:09.440,0:05:12.160 it’s an intel and i’m just making this
0:05:11.120,0:05:16.600 up arbitrarily
0:05:12.160,0:05:20.160 it’s an intel g7889
0:05:16.600,0:05:20.639 microprocessor you can go out to a
0:05:20.639,0:05:25.840 engine type in intel and then the model
0:05:24.320,0:05:28.800 of the microprocessor
0:05:25.840,0:05:30.240 look go find the official intel
0:05:28.800,0:05:33.759 specifications page
0:05:30.240,0:05:36.080 for your microprocessor scroll down
0:05:33.759,0:05:39.840 and it will tell you whether or not your
Pepsi Portable 6-Can Mini Fridge – MIS133PEP Blue Video Transcript
00:06 as – wrong cone a day a niqab very 00:11 common for video party boy I make all 00:14 kinds of videos well I try to leave it 00:17 to my niche which is computer but I get 00:21 fucking sick and tired of making videos 00:23 helping people because oh I just get I 00:26 get harassed and you know anyways 00:30 so I’m having a bit of problem here 00:32 let’s see the stream yes dropping frames 00:36 so let’s see hopefully that won’t be too 00:40 much of a problem 00:42 alright I think I’ll be alright so on 00:44 screen I now make videos about I don’t 00:48 I’m not a consumer you know and a lot of 00:51 times I buy used items the reason why I 00:53 bought this and I don’t drink soda pop 00:55 so right out of the gate so I’m gonna 00:57 offend somebody I’m mostly a roughly 01:00 would begin and soda pop is absolute 01:03 garbage and I don’t ever drink soda pop 01:05 I fucking hate Pepsi coca-cola that’s 01:09 all garbage that’s all trash the reason 01:11 why I’m making this video is because I 01:13 am staying in a hotel right now and they 01:18 this hotel they don’t have any rooms 01:21 with refrigerators it’s a long story I 01:23 was staying on another hotel for three 01:24 months and that oh that’s right it was 01:27 Motel 6 in studio 6 and then there was 01:30 really quickly there was a police 01:34 standoff with I think a former person 01:37 that stayed at that hotel and they were 01:41 on the same floor I was they were 01:42 running back and forth they took out the 01:45 fire extinguisher and then the police 01:47 showed up and then they were literally 01:49 pointing guns at this person and then 01:51 the the individual I think he was on 01:53 probation and I think he had warrants I 01:56 don’t know 01:56 then I I I’m just telling what I heard 01:58 from the police as they were bull 02:00 horning I’m not making this shit up then 02:02 he got on the roof and I hurt him and I 02:05 was like I didn’t know if this guy was 02:07 gonna start attacking people so that’s 02:09 why I got out of motel 6 to do 6 but 02:12 their guard 02:13 the management there were horrible to 02:16 begin with I was on my way out anyways 02:17 anyways so that room had our 02:21 refrigerator not all hotels have 02:24 refrigerators a lot of them do and 02:27 refrigerators can be very large you know 02:29 I had an old one but the thermostat 02:32 broke on it and it was old and and I 02:34 didn’t even know you would have to swap 02:37 out the thermostat and I’d have taken 02:39 apart and without the thermostat 02:42 functioning correctly it froze 02:44 everything and so I went to I saw I went 02:50 online and I think my audio is okay but 02:54 I don’t know man this fucking is that 02:59 it’s all right holy shit is that okay it 03:04 is in the red zone way too much it’s way 03:07 too much let me turn this down 03:09 let me turn down the gain is that what 03:11 it is okay it’s just the gain yeah I 03:13 think I need to get a new XLR microphone 03:16 cable cuz this one I noticed in my last 03:19 livestream it cut out it cut out quite a 03:22 bit like it sounded horrible as star 03:25 level alright so no and I didn’t want to 03:31 buy one at Walmart I I don’t I try not 03:34 to buy things from Walmart but we run 03:36 located at there’s not a whole lot of 03:37 stores look you know it’s not like you 03:40 know and then Craigslist you know yeah 03:43 I’m the type that would buy a used 03:44 refrigerator from quicklist but the 1.6 03:47 1.7 cubic refrigerators even at Walmart 03:51 they’re like this fucking big they’re 03:54 nice you know it’s got a separate 03:56 freezer section and cooling section but 03:58 they’re fucking hey even the new ones 04:00 are heavy I lifted it and I was like it 04:04 was just as heavy as that old one that I 04:06 had that was probably twenty years old 04:08 although it was in really nice condition 04:09 I found it yeah I’m like that I found it 04:11 I was kicked out of my last office by a 04:15 bunch of Christians they lied to me and 04:17 then they told all of us believe they 04:20 lied to all of us they had a sign a 04:22 renewal lease for a year and then they 04:24 chained 04:25 mine and then they took told us to you 04:27 know leave they gave us three months 04:28 notice those damn Christians all right 04:31 and that I found that refrigerator out 04:37 in the park by the trash bin one time 04:41 and I was like well it wasn’t good 04:45 condition well the thermostat broke 04:48 anyway so but I got rid of that one 04:50 because I didn’t want to bring with me I 04:51 finally got rid of it and I just I don’t 04:54 want to have to carry a big fucking 04:57 heavy motherfucker every you know so I 05:01 found this online and then when I went 05:04 to Walmart now they do have other sizes 05:06 they have another one that can fit six 05:08 so I don’t drink soda pop but this one 05:11 can fit up to six cans of soda I don’t 05:14 fucking drink Pepsi this is not a Pepsi 05:17 advertisement I can’t stand Pepsi if I 05:21 drink that crap I would drink Coke but 05:22 coke is the newer coke is garbage 05:25 tasting compared to the coke in the 80s 05:27 anyways anyways but I don’t ever drink 05:30 soda never I’m a mostly real rough food 05:34 vegan I prefer raw fruits and vegetables 05:37 get my energy I don’t need to drink I 05:39 don’t need stimulants they had they 05:43 didn’t they only had this one this was 05:44 the last one left this was 29.99 do I 05:49 have my receipt still yeah maybe I’ll 05:54 say that for last over time alright 05:56 anyways let’s move along is this the 05:58 receipt for yeah right here mini mini 06:05 fridge 29 oils $29 plus tax 06:09 but I bought a mouse I’m gonna make a 06:11 video yeah I I just now I just if I buy 06:15 something new which is not that often 06:16 I’d make a video why not I can try to 06:18 get my money back or why wouldn’t you 06:22 $29 even and then but I bought a mouse 06:25 that I’m gonna I’m gonna make a video 06:27 about a NN mouse that I bought and then 06:29 I’m gonna make another video about 06:30 another a brand called black something 06:35 black whatever a mouse that was a 06:37 shit that I bought at Walmart and I 06:40 dropped it once and the motherfucker 06:42 broke so I bought this on end mouse to 06:45 replace it all right 06:47 no I don’t know what the tax would be 06:49 because yeah the total tax was two 06:52 dollars and 98 cents it was $29 the 06:55 other item was 888 so that’s about what 06:58 75% I would say the tax is somewhere 250 07:02 whatever tax all right so it came it 07:05 came with a cord it comes with a 07:08 two-prong cord now this is a six pat six 07:13 mini it’s a Pepsi my I can’t believe I’m 07:19 fucking even saying the word Pepsi 07:21 because I despise capitalism and I don’t 07:24 drink soda 07:25 almost never there’s no reason for me to 07:27 drink it because I consume fruits and 07:29 vegetables that’s where I get my glucose 07:31 my natural glucose that’s where I get my 07:33 energy to make these videos I don’t I 07:34 don’t need stimulants yeah they’re but 07:36 they’re not even good for you 07:39 mini-fridge now it came with an average 07:43 110 volt plug and not but this end is 07:46 different it’s only two I’ll show it to 07:48 you 07:57 okay so as you can see it’s like a 08:00 two-prong it’s it’s well made you know 08:04 I’m saying it’s similar to like a 08:06 computer power cord all right so that 08:10 came with it you didn’t you didn’t have 08:11 to buy separately they didn’t charge you 08:13 separately so think fucking dog you know 08:15 otherwise how are you gonna part now 08:17 this refrigerator can also work in a 08:19 vehicle it has 12 volt power I haven’t 08:23 tested it I will has to actually two 08:26 cigarette adapters but they’re they both 08:30 don’t work I have an older vehicle that 08:32 some of the inside wiring is fuck saw I 08:35 need to repair that so I wasn’t able to 08:36 test that otherwise I would and I would 08:38 have told you but this I’ll show it to 08:40 you now 08:41 it’s got all’s it has on the back and 08:43 I’ll show it to you it has the you know 08:45 where you plug in the two prongs and 08:48 then it has 12 volt power source that 08:51 you would plug in any any automobile 08:53 cigarette adapter 08:54 it’ll power it and then it’s got an 08:57 on-off switch that’s it now it says 09:00 we’ll get into the I I have the Box 09:04 actually I save boxes if I bought a 09:08 ceramic heater and I made a video and I 09:10 got some views I saved the box I still 09:12 have it it’s out in my my vehicle I will 09:16 save this box even though I fucking 09:18 can’t stand Pepsi and Coke and anything 09:21 commercialized they didn’t have like a 09:23 generic one I was hoping and it could be 09:26 because of what’s going on yeah if you 09:28 notice in stores when I got when I went 09:30 to get I also needed a mouse they didn’t 09:33 have any wired mice and this is a 09:36 Walmart this is a big fucking Walmart 09:38 not just a little smaller one no this is 09:40 an average-sized Walmart with the 09:42 grocery store inside and everything they 09:45 didn’t have any wired my so that’s why I 09:46 bought the wireless I don’t even like 09:48 Wireless mice but I but I do have right 09:51 here I made a video I made a video about 09:53 this onn wired mouse haven’t had a 09:55 problem this thing I love it it it’s 09:57 great it fits great it works great no 10:00 problems this was only like eight nine 10:01 dollars at Walmart 10:03 no problems so far so I thought well you 10:07 know I the wired mouse is great I’ve 10:09 dropped it 10:10 hasn’t broke so I decided by this this 10:14 one in wireless mouse because that’s all 10:16 basically they had well they had all 10:17 their I lied but not intentionally I 10:19 don’t want to make this video too long 10:21 I’m running out of the 10 minute mark so 10:22 yeah I have a big fucking mouth but who 10:23 cares fuck you your if you’re offended 10:25 by my free speech get the fuck off my 10:27 youtube channel dislike this video do 10:29 not comment because you cannot and don’t 10:31 you dare subscribe to my youtube channel 10:33 ok let’s move along so I have the box 10:36 and quickly 6 can mini beverage center 10:38 is on the front as you can see this is 10:41 the original box I just bought it like 10:43 what like a week and a half ago so I’ve 10:46 had it for like a week or almost two 10:48 weeks because the this hotel room they 10:50 don’t have a refrigerator I asked they 10:53 might have some rooms but yeah yeah 10:55 they’ll charge you more I’m not making 10:57 that shit up though if some rooms don’t 10:59 have refrigerators they’ll charge you 11:01 more for a room that has a refrigerator 11:03 or it could be a room with two beds or a 11:05 larger room that could be more expensive 11:06 I was like you know what I picked this 11:08 room because it’s on the end of this 11:10 building and compared to the other hotel 11:13 rooms I’ve stayed at I can actually get 11:15 sleep it is very quiet I’m almost never 11:18 hear anybody they’ve got I think they’ve 11:20 got really good soundproofing because 11:22 people have been staying in the room 11:23 next to me and I almost never hear 11:25 anything now there’s some knucklehead 11:27 behind me that fucking slams his door 11:29 but other than that it’s not like I hear 11:30 a TV or anything are anyways that’s very 11:33 important to me now if you notice this 11:35 picture on the box it says it can fit 11:37 six cans but even even on the box 11:50 even on the box they look like they’re 11:52 crammed in there like they’re bare they 11:54 can barely fit both sides of the box 11:57 have the same picture there’s a little 11:59 window and it’s like why yeah can you 12:04 see it on the camera there’s a plastic 12:07 window so I can stare in at my orange 12:10 juice that you know it’s cooling we’ll 12:12 get to that we’ll get to what it can 12:15 cool the temperature rating anything you 12:19 know that’s it now oh oh on the one side 12:23 of the box quickly hold six twelve ounce 12:26 cans azure for 12 to 24 ounce bottles 12:31 total interior volume is four liters so 12:34 it’s not very large compact and portable 12:38 with the carrying handle so it can be 12:39 easily taken with you wherever you go 12:41 yes cools now this is important to me 12:44 cools up to 32 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit 12:47 below ambient room temperature I’ve got 12:51 an air conditioner running 32 degrees 12:54 celsuis thats technically freezing now I 12:59 tried it for five days I had some frozen 13:02 fruit and I’ll try to show them to you 13:05 this will be a lot longer video and I 13:07 thought I would make I’m right at the 13:08 14-minute mark fuck alright I had some 13:14 frozen food impact plastic packaging 13:19 didn’t freeze it kept him cool but they 13:22 thought out because they were frozen 13:24 when I bought them so it doesn’t freeze 13:26 items now so however it does say it 13:32 cools up to 32 to 45 degrees heavy-duty 13:36 locking latch and door hands died now I 13:40 disagree with that statement it’s right 13:43 here and I’ll show it to you 13:44 it looks like it’s flimsy it looks like 13:46 it might be made out of that cheap 13:47 plastic that could just break off so 13:50 we’ll see we’ll see heavy-duty locking 13:53 latch and door hinge to keep your 13:55 beverages or snacks secure I think they 13:58 could have made a better made door right 14:01 here latch but we’ll see 14:04 a viewing window allows you to see in so 14:08 you know when it’s time to refill oh I 14:11 get it 14:11 you can look how big the window is what 14:14 you literally have to stick your fucking 14:17 head yeah dude stick your you have to do 14:20 this let’s say let’s see how many sodas 14:27 do I have well let’s see I gotta stick 14:29 my goddamn fucking face all the way up 14:31 to the window and my eye well let’s see 14:33 out of the corner I think I see a third 14:35 soda oh well you know what I could just 14:38 fucking open the door alright easy to 14:43 clean fully insulated interior features 14:45 a cell shelf yes it does come with a 14:47 shelf actually for storing small snacks 14:52 thermoelectric cooling system keeps your 14:54 beverages and snacks at just the right 14:55 temperature are consistently quiet and 14:58 safe from vibration powered by a hundred 15:00 and twenty volt which is indoor power 15:03 plugs into a 12-volt car adapter or home 15:07 outlet both cords are included yes yeah 15:10 I couldn’t believe it both of them 15:12 I’ll show you yeah sometimes when you 15:14 buy products well especially oh that 15:17 Mouse you know what that Mouse that onn 15:20 Mouse which is his Chinese company it 15:22 came with batteries a lot of you know 15:24 neon that I don’t watch television that 15:26 stupid but back in the day yeah I 15:28 remember batteries not included 15:30 here’s your new brand-new RC remote car 15:34 Aaron oh wait a minute 15:35 batteries not included Aaron and then 15:38 it’s midnight and nobody’s open and you 15:41 know you just got a Christmas toy and 15:43 well yeah and you don’t have any huh you 15:47 don’t have any batteries in your home 15:48 all right 15:48 I always thought that was cheap that is 15:52 cheap to me but alright now this is the 15:55 12 volt adapter they’re still in the 15:57 original plastic bag that came with this 16:00 refer little mini fridge and it looks 16:03 like it’s decent quality it’s got two 16:04 prongs or that you plug into the back 16:07 and then it’s got the adapter this is 16:09 what would be known as a cigarette 16:11 lighter adapter twelve volt this should 16:14 this will yeah this will fit in any 16:16 cigarette adapt 16:17 and it will power the little fridge all 16:19 right anything else it came with this 16:21 other plastic covering on over the 16:25 refrigerator and then here’s the which 16:28 I’ll I may never use because I’m storing 16:31 my very important I’m storing orange 16:36 juice with pulp this is the little 16:39 plastic it looks like it’s halfway 16:42 decent made shelf 16:51 it looks like it’s pretty permanent you 16:54 know all you never know with nowadays 16:57 man but yeah it looks halfway decent all 17:00 right let’s put everything back and it 17:02 came with an instruction manual 17:17 okay I’m not gonna read oh no no no but 17:19 I just quickly 17:21 okay the model number is in the you the 17:23 title of this video so if you’re 17:24 interested in it and I and I’ll show you 17:26 where to go get it from Walmart I’m 17:28 already at the 17 minute mark it is the 17:31 MS excuse me M is 133 PEP for Pepsi I 17:39 all just I wish they had a generic one 17:43 they had nothing they had the big 1.6 17:46 1.7 cubic refrigerators and then they 17:48 had this this was the last one that they 17:50 had and I was like fuck I was like and I 17:54 had already bought some frozen food but 17:57 I changed my mind I didn’t want to spend 17:59 80 or 100 bucks for a big fucking 18:03 refrigerator fo it will cool and it 18:07 would have frozen everything would have 18:08 been nice they had different brands but 18:11 I was like nah man and then I changed my 18:14 eating habit so anyways but most of the 18:20 most of the frozen items I was able to 18:21 buy kept it by their the air conditioner 18:25 and the this kept it cool enough that it 18:28 did not spoil but you might want to be 18:30 aware that if you have food at 32 to 45 18:32 degrees quickly what else it doesn’t 18:36 cover over much it’s in a different 18:39 language here it doesn’t have much it 18:43 just has features cold the unit can 18:46 chill 32 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit 18 18:50 degrees Celsius but it does not because 18:53 I ran it for five days and it cooled but 18:57 now it wasn’t frozen still it wasn’t no 19:00 no no 12 volt we already went over that 19:05 mode selection it only has 3 buttons 19:07 I’ll show you the back well it excuse me 19:09 and only it has a 12 volt power 120 volt 19:14 power and then the on/off switch that’s 19:16 it it does not have a an adjustment it 19:23 doesn’t have like high or low or it 19:26 doesn’t have a temperature gauge or 19:27 anything it’s just either on or off it 19:29 has a green light that’s 19:32 maintenance or blah blah all right 19:34 that’s it that’s it anything that’s it 19:37 so this can all go back and I’ll keep 19:42 everything that’s how I am I even keep 19:44 boxes because when I leave this hotel 19:46 room you know I’m gonna want to put this 19:48 back in and you know oh and everything 19:56 on the back of the box yeah it went over 19:59 everything I went in this video is 20:01 listed on the back of the box see now 20:08 let’s let’s open it up I don’t like this 20:10 handle man 20:11 I think this handle is pretty janky I 20:17 don’t know about this dude look there it 20:21 is now I have to be careful because I’ve 20:23 got I cooked too much oatmeal and I got 20:27 pissed up myself and so I just crammed 20:29 it in this plastic cup at this hotel and 20:31 I crammed it in there now as you can see 20:33 there’s not much room and I also have 20:35 the my pasta sauce I don’t I don’t have 20:39 any like pots and pans I don’t have a 20:41 kitchenette some hotels have kitchenette 20:43 some of the extended stay hotels will 20:45 have a kitchenette this is not an 20:47 extended-stay hotel and they don’t have 20:49 any you know it’s a so I keep this in 20:51 there because you don’t want pasta paste 20:54 to little spoil but this refrigerator 20:58 keeps it cool enough that it did not 20:59 spoil I had it for five days so that’s 21:02 good so I eat some pastas or mostly raw 21:06 food vegan but I eat some brains a 21:09 little bit of pasta about a cup per day 21:11 and then this is just paste and I add 21:15 some water and it flavors it enough for 21:17 me so and then I need to clean it you 21:21 know on it I’m a clean freak 21:38 I don’t even know how the fuck it got 21:39 dirty here just a little bit of sauce 21:42 maybe yeah that’s gross now another 21:47 thing I want to tell you is this seal is 21:49 real janky man there’s this seal right 21:57 here with the door and look right here 22:02 it comes out like it literally comes off 22:05 its come off more than once see look 22:07 look how easy is this is real flimsy I 22:12 don’t I don’t even know if this is 22:14 required it’s Co you know it seals right 22:17 here there is a little crevice here that 22:19 sticks out around ya you probably want a 22:23 seal but this is so cheap and janky and 22:25 I have it come off more than once so 22:28 it’s got some screws underneath the seal 22:31 for the door it’s got a plastic it’s all 22:35 plastic no glass but I thought that was 22:38 pretty pathetic Pepsi brand reframing 22:42 fridge with the fucking look at this 22:44 this this is cheap to me man 22:46 I can already tell man I swear you know 22:49 I wouldn’t be surprised if later down 22:51 the road this breaks off and then how 22:53 the fuck what the fuck am I gonna do 22:54 hopefully I’ll still be able to you know 22:56 open the fridge 22:58 it doesn’t even turn all the way alright 23:00 and then as you can see this is a what 23:05 fifty nine nine fifty nine ounce sprouts 23:09 brand orange juice with pulp 23:13 I would prefer eating oranges but that’s 23:16 a lot of oranges I try to buy the best 23:18 orange juice I can get the healthiest I 23:21 try to avoid this is pasteurized and 23:23 then in a net you don’t necessarily want 23:25 to drink pasteurized orange juice you 23:27 want to drink like just get some oranges 23:29 and then squeeze them and then yeah 23:31 however in a hotel you know what I’m 23:36 saying I could do that but I have to buy 23:38 a bunch of shitload of oranges this 23:40 isn’t bad plus it does have pulp 23:43 I’ve studied in drinking orange juice is 23:46 usually as sometimes well to me it’s 23:48 better that it has pulp now as you can 23:51 see 23:52 the inside the shelf would go right here 23:56 here I could even quickly quickly don’t 24:02 move 24:03 oh yeah well anyways the Shelf it’s up 24:06 towards the top it just goes like this 24:17 somehow there we go 24:23 there goddamnit 24:28 there there’s the shelf BAM so it’s very 24:34 small it fits a 59 ounce container of 24:40 orange juice and then there’s a little 24:42 bit of room on the side and a little bit 24:44 of room maybe an inch or two on the side 24:47 an inch or two in front of it that’s it 24:50 that’s it man 24:50 that’s it dude so let’s see what else 24:53 can I show you yeah it’s it stays pretty 24:57 cool though my orange juice 24:59 it does not spoil so this is the second 25:02 orange juice I’ve had it doesn’t spoil 25:05 it actually cools similar to a 25:07 refrigerator so I’ve not had problems 25:09 with orange juice cuz the orange juice 25:10 is extremely important to me because 25:12 this is now that more natural glucose 25:15 and this gives you energy if you if 25:17 you’re low on energy you’re not 25:18 consuming enough carbs or you know 25:20 glucose you know I’m saying you don’t 25:23 need coffee 25:23 you don’t need caffeine you don’t need 25:25 to fucking drink Pepsi 25:35 there it is 26:06 there’s the on/off switch 26:11 got our fan 26:23 okay 28 26 minute mark not bad not bad 26:31 yeah I want to see you make a review 26:34 video and do it freestyle like I do or 26:36 anything further it when they say 26:38 mini-fridge it’s mini and I showed you 26:42 the on/off switch I showed you the two 26:44 the receptacles for the 12 volt and 120 26:47 volt power I showed you the sticker it 26:50 has a fan I think the fan I think the 26:52 fan is always on because I notice it 26:55 heats up a little bit behind it and this 26:58 got Vance on all sides you know what I 27:00 could show you the bottom there’s really 27:02 nothing on the bottom and all the handle 27:40 okay okay that’s enough now what I’m 27:43 gonna show you is let me pull up the 27:45 Walmart page no I think Walmart has an 27:47 affiliate program although man I’m 27:49 really I mean that would be really 27:51 hypocritical I’m really opposed to 27:54 Walmart but I don’t like shopping there 27:57 and but really around here or where 28:02 there’s jl most mom-and-pop shops which 28:05 to me is by design or out of business 28:08 and that well bit when you go to walmart 28:10 now even there the low on stock you’re 28:14 on Sam alright let’s go to the internet 28:16 and let’s get the fuck out of here 28:18 then I got a other shit to do anyways 28:21 alright like I got her all right so let 28:25 me I meanwhile look up the Walmart page 28:30 for this mini-frig Walmart 28:34 let’s see Pepsi Pepsi 6 can Nene now I 28:41 think that I think they might have some 28:42 in red yeah I think this is it right 28:46 here 28:46 free freezer list mini fridges yeah it 28:51 won’t freeze here it is this is it right 28:54 here this is the same one yeah and let’s 28:59 see there there it is 29:09 this is the same fridge all they come in 29:11 different colors not just red looks like 29:14 red was that oh doctor the dr. pepper 29:18 color and pepper yeah oh you know what 29:24 what the fuck is it doing oh but what 29:27 Budweiser they got a Budweiser one I 29:29 don’t drink alcohol so that’s there 29:32 there’s a lot of sugar but that’s 29:34 refined processed that’s like now plus 29:37 alcohol kills brain cells and so now dr. 29:41 pepper 29:42 Mountain Dew they have a mountain Dew 29:43 one although I don’t know why it’s taken 29:46 forever to load oh there it is oh my god 29:50 oh this handle right here yeah I don’t I 29:53 don’t agree with their marketing 29:54 bullshit that’s like some of the that 29:57 cheap plastic and you notice how it 29:59 looks like it’s shiny 30:02 that’s that fake paint that they put 30:04 over plastic to make it shiny make you 30:07 think it’s metal metal nah 30:09 and now that’s pretty janky and when you 30:12 know it only it turns a little bit and I 30:16 don’t know I could see where that may 30:17 break off right I could be wrong you 30:19 know I’m saying anyways there’s the 30:22 Mountain Dew one how about the beer one 30:25 I’m not an affiliate for any of these 30:28 companies oh there’s the Budweiser one 30:29 they didn’t have any of them all they 30:31 had was this fucking Pepsi one I was 30:35 hoping they had a generic one you know 30:36 what else there’s a sticker on the front 30:39 where the logo is I thought that they’d 30:43 painted the logo on that and I could 30:45 just peel it off wrong it comes off but 30:48 you can still see the logo so what I 30:50 might do is I might actually paint it 30:52 myself 30:53 I’d have to peel off that excuse me I’d 30:57 have to peel off that whatever that film 31:02 is on the front I have I actually have a 31:05 heater but a heater a heat gun but boy I 31:09 don’t know man so I don’t want to 31:11 butcher it any more than our I might I 31:13 kind of start peeling off the I don’t 31:15 think you can tell but yeah I plan on 31:18 trying to paint over that goddamn 31:20 god-awful Pepsi fucking logo 31:22 shit anything else they got 43 reviews 31:27 you can get it shipped but I found it at 31:30 my local Walmart anything further it’s 31:35 pretty basic or they have they have 31:37 another model that’s I think $10 more I 31:40 think that holds 12 that would have been 31:44 even better because then I would have 31:46 had enough room for my fuckup where I 31:48 cooked too much oatmeal and now I try to 31:54 I try to control my grains cuz anyways 31:57 and then my little paste that’s all I 32:00 need right now I don’t I don’t use it 32:02 for anything else I don’t need to worry 32:03 about frozen food anymore so it’s 32:06 perfect for my orange juice and then 32:09 maybe some you know my paste anything 32:13 else see more info oh here it is the six 32:22 cans and barely oh here it is here’s 32:26 what I’m talking about this seal right 32:28 here right where that my mouse is at it 32:31 key came off mobile times like two or 32:33 three times its really annoying it’s 32:35 really cheap it’s just made out of like 32:37 a cheap foam type material and but you 32:43 notice right here where my cursor is at 32:45 on the outside of the opening there’s a 32:48 little groove plastic that sticks out 32:50 very very small but that probably 32:55 requires the seal I’m thinking if you 32:57 did not have the seal this might not 33:00 seal very well in a main lose air you 33:04 know may not cool as well because why 33:06 else would they have the seal you might 33:08 be able to yeah I bet you what you could 33:10 do is get if you’re handy with this type 33:14 of you know projects you might be able 33:16 to get some better seal material and 33:20 really cram it in there better so it 33:23 doesn’t come out it came off all the way 33:25 like to over here so I had this long 33:27 piece I had to reinsert and that’s 33:31 happened like two or three times so I 33:33 thought that was janky but it’s only $30 33:35 you know I’m saying 33:36 well six cans or four liters blah blah 33:39 blah we went over all this well now this 33:41 says cools from 27 to 36 degrees 33:44 Fahrenheit well on the box it fucking 33:46 said 32 to 45 I know for a fact it 33:50 doesn’t cool down to 32 because none of 33:53 my frozen items remain frozen it’s 10 33:58 inches by 7 by 10 and a half compact 34:02 see-through window and we already went 34:04 over the power anything else it does 34:07 latch now it does latch this this handle 34:09 right here here well yeah I already 34:12 showed you it does latch what what you 34:14 do is you just press you press tight and 34:16 it will you’ll hear a snapping noise so 34:18 it latches and then you just turn to the 34:21 left 34:22 to open the door so that works but I’m 34:24 telling you know I could be wrong with 34:25 that handle looks janky all right 34:27 low noise oh yeah it’s got a motor and I 34:31 can I can’t really hear anything I think 34:32 the fan constantly spins but I could be 34:34 wrong I know I don’t hear the fan and I 34:37 haven’t had a problem with it 34:38 overheating I’ve had it for two weeks 34:39 and it works just like it’s supposed to 34:42 it keeps my orange juice and my a paste 34:44 and my my some oatmeal for tomorrow cool 34:49 store snacks beverages and skincare 34:52 products for all you youtube to even you 34:57 men you youtube technology shills that 35:01 script all your videos you lie to your 35:05 audience 35:05 you sell fucking coffee mugs with your 35:09 picture on it because you’re 35:10 narcissistic and you wear makeup on 35:14 camera 35:22 oh one more

because 36:31 you’re cooking away all the important 36:33 antioxidants and vitamins and minerals 36:36 and amino acids but let me show you on 36:39 screen what I did store in that 36:41 refrigerator really quick right here on 36:43 the right hand side whoops 36:46 right here let me open this up open 36:48 image and new tab or yes this right no 36:52 not the peaches I don’t like them right 36:54

but they were 37:19 cool enough that they did not spoil so 37:21 just to let you know that even though on 37:23 the box it says 32 degrees which is 37:26 technically freezing well but then you 37:29 look on their their Walmart page it says 37:31 27 degrees Fahrenheit well I’m telling 37:35 right now at least this refrigerator did 37:37 not keep these frozen and it did not 37:41 keep the vegetables that the the mixed 37:44 vegetables that came in a package that 37:45 were frozen they thought out as well and 37:48 I bought them I just came from the 37:50 Dollar Tree and I stuffed a little 37:52 fridge with what was it one day’s worth 37:55 three three of these yeah that you’re 37:58 looking around 800 calories so believe 38:01 it or not it and that’s gonna be that’s 38:03 gonna

here I don’t have it 38:43 memorized why would I mi s is s IPP I 38:49 and my SSI SSI PPI you know how to spell 38:53 the state of Mississippi children now 38:55 you know how to spell the the state of 38:57 Mississippi oops 38:59 you could see my screen M is 133 PEP 39:11 that’s my review video adios my next 39:14 video will probably be about that janky 39:16 mouse that dropped once on a hardwood 39:19 floor and it broke and I opened it up 39:22 and I can prove to you that all’s it 39:24 took was one drop on the floor and the 39:26 motherfucker broke adios
I ran into another disaster in information technology. This time I had purchased a Blackweb wireless mouse from a local Walmart. I paid $11.94 not including tax for this wireless mouse.
However, I dropped it one time from a table at a motel I was staying at. The floor was a hardwood floor. Well this mouse quit working after that one drop to the floor.
I then proceeded to take this mouse apart to try to fix it. What happaned was that a small piece of plastic broke off from the mouse wheel. There are two small pieces of plastic on both sides of the scroll mouse wheel, that interact with the functioning of this mouse.
This fatal drop caused the demise of this Blackweb wireless mouse. Mice and keyboards to me should be able to sustain drops. I am not talking about throwing and or slamming a mouse or keyboard.
I am talking about simple innocent accidental drops of mice and or keyboards. I tried fixing this missing plastic piece with electrical tape to no avail. I only spent $11.94 for this wireless mouse so it was not worth my time and or effort to salvage this Blackweb wireless mouse.
This mouse is compatible with the following operating systems:
Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows 8
Microsoft Windows 10
Apple Macintosh 10.5 Leopard and Newer
I was able to use this mouse with MX Linux 18.3, which is a Debian distribution derivation, even though the product guide does not mention Linux.
This mouse comes with the following buttons:
On and Off Switch
This Blackweb wireless mouse also comes with a Universal Serial Bus nano antenna receiver. This wireless mouse also came with a single double AA battery. A silver Energizer brand double AA battery was included.
I thought this was a nice touch. I hate those batteries not included products. This wireless mouse has 5 different DPI settings that I did not fiddle with.
Setting up and using this mouse on Linux no less was easy. You just take the back battery cover off and then install the included AA battery. Then you connect the Universal Serial Bus antenna receiver to your computer.
Now you turn the wireless mouse on with the on off switch. Viola, I was controlling my Linux computer with this mouse. It just sucks that one drop was fatal.
This mouse connected automatically to the Universal Serial Bus antenna receiver, so I did not need to use the connect button.
Blackweb Wireless Mouse – Review Video Transcript
00:00 this is my review video pertaining to 00:02 this mouse that I purchased at Walmart 00:07 that I promised I was going to make it 00:09 is black web is the brand this is the 00:12 original packaging and still includes 00:15 the mouse the Wi-Fi USB and Tanna is 00:21 gone because I you know got rid of it 00:23 but it didn’t it did include it quickly 00:26 we’ll just go over the packaging it 00:27 turned into a total disaster I’ll just 00:29 fucking tell you right now I dropped 00:32 this mouse one time on either probably 00:36 real hardwood floor or synthetic at a 00:38 motel 00:40 and it quit working and I will show you 00:42 bite quit working because it fucking 00:44 broke it was a it was probably a table 00:47 table height it wasn’t it’s not like 00:50 they you know no it was either I think 00:53 it was on a table and it fell off and it 00:56 never worked after that all right so 00:59 it’s a black web 6 button wireless 01:01 fabric covered Mouse with five dpi 01:04 levels what else 01:09 contoured for comfort with the soft 01:12 sleek cover it’s USB Universal serious 01:15 bus is plug and play 01:22 oh it comes with the the receiver which 01:24 is the antenna and that is stored inside 01:29 the mouse when it’s not in use but when 01:32 you first get it it comes right there 01:34 it’s right there if you when you buy it 01:37 new 30-foot range wireless RF it uses it 01:45 doesn’t use bluetooth it uses the old 01:46 school RF five dpi levels it is 01:53 compatible with personal computers and 01:56 Mac and crap wind blows and also Linux I 01:59 actually use this on Linux and it worked 02:02 well it worked just fine for a while 02:05 it requires batteries one double-a 02:08 battery and it was included battery you 02:10 know that bullshit the cheap 02:12 capitalistic whores batteries not 02:15 included 02:16 Wow but this one actually came with a 02:18 battery I still have it I think where I 02:23 I still have it it’s a silver battery 02:26 it’s a double e if I I’m a limb trying 02:30 to think where it it’s in it’s in that 02:31 tub 02:32 I think anyways so I’m going to I’m 02:36 going to show you the package with the 02:37 mouse real quick 03:04 okay so now I’m gonna take it out of its 03:08 packaging again I saved it to make this 03:10 video because this would turn into a 03:12 fucking utter disaster 03:14 I paid eleven I have the receipt 03:17 somewhere I paid like 11:30 for $11.34 03:23 for it or something like that at Walmart 03:25 and including not including taxes and I 03:30 dropped it once and it quit working and 03:32 I was like you gotta be fucking kidding 03:35 me no I didn’t throw it I didn’t you 03:37 know slam it down or I didn’t throw it 03:39 it fell off like the table that I was 03:41 using alright so let’s open up this 03:46 Janka tea packaging it’s a I mean it 03:52 looked like a decent Mouse 03:57 and here here’s the mouse itself and the 04:02 packaging and all that that comes with 04:04 it it comes with a small little product 04:10 guy but there’s really not much to it 04:12 you know where I’m sits a mouse so what 04:15 it doesn’t even tell you if you drop it 04:20 it will not work yeah it actually does 04:25 it has description Windows 7 Windows 8 04:28 Windows 10 Mac OS 10.5 or later and it 04:32 works on Linux I’m using MX Linux 04:34 night at the time it was eighteen point 04:37 three left button right button scroll 04:40 wheel forward backward dpi switch key 04:44 nano receiver which is the wireless 04:46 receiver USB battery cover connect 04:49 button off on switch okay 04:55 forward-backward DPS which I didn’t fuck 04:58 with the DPS which it has a little 05:00 compartment where the battery and then 05:03 also the antenna fit the USB antenna all 05:07 right 05:09 wireless mouse down a receiver one 05:11 double a battery user’s manual yeah all 05:14 right so I didn’t even read the little 05:17 guide but yeah so it has this little 05:20 plastic door you just stick your your 05:24 fingernail in or whatever and just pull 05:26 out and there it comes off so it’s just 05:29 like that alright now I mean I can yeah 05:37 when I first started using I was like I 05:40 don’t know the scroll wheel is a bit 05:43 it’s really not it kind of moves you can 05:48 feel it move which is okay but when you 05:53 take it apart a pretty cheap plastic and 05:56 then it has a dpi button but I never 05:59 fuck with it and then it’s got it’s got 06:02 left and right buttons when you press 06:05 down it has two side buttons I never I 06:08 never use those but whatever and then 06:11 the battery fits in there and then it’s 06:15 got the compartment for the antenna the 06:18 USB nano receiver 06:35 all right and then 06:41 okay the lighting in here isn’t the best 06:44 for these kind of demonstrations but I 06:46 don’t fucking care now I took it apart 06:51 there were I’m trying to think there was 06:54 at least one screw – there were two 06:58 small screws there’s little little 07:01 plastic that has blue on it to hide the 07:05 screw holes and then was there another 07:08 one you know behind here yeah there were 07:11 four so that there’s this plastic piece 07:14 with glue on it to hide the screws I 07:18 just I’ve worked on you know computed 07:22 you know computers for decades now so 07:25 it’s like most mice are are held with 07:29 screws and a lot of times they’re hidden 07:32 behind little pieces of plastic or 07:35 rubber that have glue so I took it apart 07:39 and then it just lifts off and then I’m 07:42 gonna show you I should be able to show 07:44 let me describe it first oh you know 07:46 what so here’s the scroll wheel it’s 07:50 painted with that false to make it look 07:57 like it’s shiny and all that but I’ve 07:59 noticed that plastic that’s painted like 08:01 that a lot of times it’s not very good 08:04 it’s not very strong so here’s the wheel 08:08 and then I will the one it’s got two 08:13 little pieces of plastic on each side 08:16 that sits down and that they fit into 08:21 this other 08:26 then they kind of fit in and then as the 08:30 the scroll mouse wheel moves its you 08:36 know connected to the left and the right 08:38 mice and then also the scroll well it 08:42 broke off one side broke off and I’ll 08:44 show it to you 09:05 so did you should have noticed the green 09:08 the little green has painted green now 09:10 that this I didn’t break off the other 09:13 one did so this little piece of plastic 09:17 I think yeah it broke off and you even 09:22 though I dropped the mouse about I don’t 09:24 know five feet off the floor 09:27 I dropped it once and it quit working it 09:29 is because this other side of the wheel 09:32 the little tab broke off and then it 09:36 fucked nothing you know 09:38 well it’s war it’s it’s useless because 09:40 it’s this on the scroll wheel I was like 09:44 man so sometimes you do get what you pay 09:47 for but the rest of the mouse is is if 09:51 you yeah if you have an old mouse you 09:53 might want to take them apart just a 09:56 reverse engineer and see how they work 09:59 so this is what it looks like without 10:00 the cover and it’s got a circuit board 10:03 and it’s got a power cable it’s got two 10:07 small boards actually 10:28 alright well that is my review of this 10:31 mouse because it doesn’t work man I 10:36 tried to fix it I tried to like tape you 10:40 know try it too I I had the little piece 10:43 that broke off 10:44 I lost it somewhere it actually kind of 10:48 yeah completely broke off I had it in 10:51 the packaging and I lost it or I might 10:53 have thrown it away I might have 10:54 forgotten about it I wanted to show you 10:56 you know that it did break off on the 11:00 one side of the wheel and I tried to fix 11:05 it I tried to tape it back to hold it it 11:10 wouldn’t it wouldn’t spin right you 11:12 might be able to glue it probably yeah 11:15 if you had some superglue but the mouse 11:17 is only $11 so I was like you know what 11:19 by the time I fucking you know I don’t 11:22 have superglue but to spend the time 11:25 trying if that he would even work you 11:28 could proud you might if you’re good 11:30 with electronics and plastics you might 11:33 be able to heat it up and then you know 11:36 like on a circuit board you can you do 11:39 know that you can fix your own circuit 11:40 boards your mother goes out motherboard 11:43 goes out it could be because of anyways 11:46 I don’t want to digress too much but if 11:48 you know how to solder you could soldier 11:51 in you might be able to you know heat it 11:54 up and get some plastic or something 11:57 some light he so heat it up and then 12:01 stick it on there or a superglue and 12:03 hold it hold it right or let leave it 12:06 let it dry I don’t know if if I draw if 12:10 all’s I did here I’ll demonstrate I 12:15 don’t want to scratch now this is 12:16 synthetic flooring here is similar to 12:19 what the other floor that I think that 12:21 was real a hardwood floor this is I 12:23 think synthetic I don’t think this mouse 12:25 is gonna scratch up this hotel room so 12:30 what I’m going to do is 12:31 I can even what I can do is I don’t want 12:35 to scratch up the floor is I’m going to 12:39 put this little cover back on come on 12:44 bitch 12:48 there it goes and we will put the 12:51 cardboard down on the floor and this is 12:55 about the yeah this is about how high it 12:57 was well it broke oh well fuck Chet if 13:04 if if it can’t if the mouse wheel can’t 13:08 survive that drop then how the fuck are 13:14 you gonna fix it I’m just not I’m not 13:18 you know alright so there is my review 13:25 video of the black web that I found I 13:29 purchased this at Walmart the black web 13:33 mouse that it looked kind of nice my 13:38 next video I think I don’t know I don’t 13:41 lie intentionally I bought another Mouse 13:44 or wireless mouse the onn brand from the 13:49 same Walmart for Less $8 $9 and that one 13:54 works just great 13:56 now I don’t intentionally try it drop 13:59 mice I don’t throw you don’t want to 14:02 throw no you never want to throw around 14:05 you know mice and keyboard but to me a 14:09 keyboard and a mouse it should survive a 14:13 drop a slam or throw no but a drop this 14:23 should survive that oh my god I’m not – 14:28 it’s only $11 I don’t know if I could 14:32 even get a warranty 14:33 you know return it with the warranty 14:36 because they’d be yeah well goddamn it 14:37 Aaron you fucking brought it we’re not 14:40 we’re not gonna return your money 14:42 goddamn it Aaron 14:44 well well Jesus Christ our and ideals I 14:48 think my next video will be about the 14:50 other wireless mouse that works just 14:52 great and I’ll actually like it I don’t 14:55 like Wireless mice adios
Another computer support request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is the original question posted verbatim.
How do I login to my Zyxel router.
This individual owned a Zyxel EMG2926_Q10A router. The default username is “supervisor” or “admin” without quotations. The default password is “supervisor” or “1234” without quotations.
My gold tip for this question, is that you should probably change your router password from the default. Many Internet routers, you cannot change the default username. However, most if not all I have dealt with, you can change the password.
It can be a security risk not to change the default password. I was able to quickly find the default username and password for this Zyxel EMG2926_Q10A router. If I was able to obtain this default login information, then anyone could have access to it.
Finally, in order to get to the login page, you would type in 192.168.1.1 into a web browser. First you want to connect your computer, laptop, tablet, etc. into the router with an Ethernet cable or via wireless connection. Once that device obtains an IP address then you should be able to login.
Your device must be on the same sub network. If the router IP address is 192.168.1.1 then your device IP address must be 192.168.1.X. The X is any number up to 255.
I recently received a couple of items for recycling. One of them being an old school Onkyo CX-70 receiver. This device is fucking heavy.
This audio receiver is mostly made out of steel and aluminum. There is very little plastic found. However, I noticed a few faulty items.
Two of the speaker connectors were loose. Also, I think the built in antenna was not properly connected. I decided to test this receiver out.
I love fucking around with electronics. Also, I like to repair or figure out how to repair electronics. Sound systems is not my niche.
I am up for learning new things though. This receiver I initially thought would be perhaps 20 years old. I performed a quick Google search and found one listing over at Radio Museum.org with 1981 as the manufactured date.
I could not find a manufactured date sticker on this Onkyo CX-70. At first I thought it was possible it would not power on. The individual that dropped it off did NOT know if it worked or not.
I plugged it in and powered it on and I did NOT see any visual display that it worked. I started to fiddle around with the AM switch. Low and behold I saw a red light.
Some green lights started flashing. I think the receiver was tuned into a radio station. Later on I have concluded that many of the green power lights do NOT work.
For example as soon as you turn on this Onkyo receiver, you should see green lights above the power button. This audio receiver has a cassette tape player that opens with or without the device plugged in to live power.
That is kind of a cool feature. Perhaps in case the cassette tape gets stuck? I don’t know the answer to that question. I found some jankety speaker I think from a liquid crystal display that had a busted screen.
Anyhow, I quickly hooked this speaker up to the older school type speaker connectors. You literally connect bare speaker wire to the receiver. Not RCA type connectors.
I was able to hear AM radio. This receiver actually works. I tested out the FM receiver and that also worked.
I was a bit surprised. I do NOT own any cassette tapes, so I was not able to test that. However, later I did test the reverse, forward, stop, and start buttons.
They all seem to work. This receiver has four connectors for straight speaker wire. You can hook up just two speakers.
There are both positive and negative speaker wire connectors. This Onkyo CX-70 also includes two RCA connectors. Unfortunately, I do not have any of those type of speakers either.
This allows you to hook up two speakers with left and right connectors. This unit includes an external AM antenna connector for straight speaker wire. Also, one 75 ohm and one 300 ohm FM antenna connectors.
There is one straight through speaker wire ground connector. Interestingly, there is a 120 watt power plug. This would allow you to power another device.
There is a 150 maximum watt amplifier with this Onkyo CX-70 receiver. There is a quarter inch microphone connection and a quarter inch headphones jack connection. There is then obviously a record button with the cassette feature.
This receiver has the following adjustments:
* fm or am
* tuner or phono
* source or cassette
* loudness on or off
* microphone level
The tape cassette player has the following buttons:
* fast forward
The tape cassette player has two adjusting knobs:
* dolby nr out or in
* tape select high, metal or normal
I am going to try to sell this Onkyo CX-70 locally probably on Craigslist. I really do NOT have a use for it as I do NOT listen to commercial over the air radio. I stream techno music without lyrics preferably.
If I cannot sell it I might keep it for testing purposes.
I received another request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is the original request:
“I have discovered that Quick Books will not export to Excel office 365 version. So I would like to install my legal copy of office 2010 on the laptop and use it’s Excel to work with the Quick Books files. Will this work OK, or will the new install somehow harm or delete office 365?”
The quick answer to this question is that yes, you can install multiple different versions of Microsoft Office suite software onto the same computer. This individual was using a computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed. Here is the rest of my response:
Yes, you can install multiple versions of Microsoft office on the same computer. However, you have to make sure that you change the directory that Microsoft office gets installed on. For example you would want Microsoft Office 2010 installed in a different folder compared to the Microsoft Office 365 installation
C:\Program Files\Office 2010
I would first verify where your existing Microsoft Office installation is located. It should be in one of these two folders:
C:\Program Files (x86)
Once you verify where Microsoft Office 365 is currently installed, then try to install Microsoft Office 2010. During the beginning of the installation, it will ask you the where you want to install Microsoft into. This is when and where you change the file path to something different then where Microsoft Office 365 is installed.
You want to make certain you pick a file path that is different otherwise you will overwrite files. You want to install Microsoft office 2010 like this:
C:\Program Files\Office 2010
Not in the downloads folder of your user account, if that is what you meant. If you install Microsoft Office 2010 in:
C:\Program Files\Office 2010
Then make certain that Microsoft Office 365 is currently installed in:
C:\Program Files\Office 365
This is an old school trick that I have known about for quite a few years. You just have to make certain you pick dynamic installation folders. Also, you may want to use a naming convention that is logical and not confusing.
You might want to keep the folder names short and targeted to the versions of Microsoft Office you are installing. If you forget or ever need to remove a version of Microsoft Office then you can just browse to:
C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). The (x86) folder is for 32 x86 bit applications. The folder without (x86) is where x64 64 bit applications become installed.
As long as you install Microsoft Office in different folders then you will be able to use multiple versions of Microsoft Office on your computer. This individual was able to successfully install both Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 365 on the same exact computer without avoiding a major crisis. These instructions were written for a computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed.
This may seem like a strange request. However, in my time in corporate and government military America, this was a more common request than you might imagine. However, this information can be used for other Microsoft operating systems.
Another request from a third party website where I earn supplemental income. This one dealt with trying to free up space on an external hard drive. Here is this individual’s initial request:
“I am trying to remove old files from my backup hard drive. Does not seem to work any way I try!”
This individual had two external hard drives. An F and H drive. These two external hard drives had the exact same data.
They seemed to have been mirror images of each other. One reason why this individual could NOT remove data from their F drive is that it was actually a Microsoft system image backup. This type of backup does NOT allow you to have read only access or read and write access.
This type of backup is a system image. There were only a few files, but they were actually image files. Image files are generally compressed.
This type of backup is for emergency purposes. Hypothetically, if your Microsoft Windows 10 computer does NOT boot correctly, you could restore it from this type of system image backup. When I deal with customer data, I always proceed with caution.
You do NOT ever want to delete customer data, even accidentally. I asked this individual if they needed any data off this F drive. They stated no, more than once.
I went ahead and told them that I could just format this external hard drive for them. This would allow them to copy any type of data they wanted to this F drive. This is when I learned that their H drive was a mirror image of their F drive.
This individual gave me the approval. Formatting a hard drive in Microsoft operating system’s is real easy. You want to open up file explorer.
This takes you to “This PC”.
On the left hand side you will see folders, drive letters, and Network. Select the hard drive that you want to format. Right click that drive letter and select “Format”.
You can type in a volume label or just accept the default. You can accept the default of NTFS file system. Also, you will have two choices between “Quick” or “Full” format.
A full format takes quite a bit longer versus a quick format. However, performing a full format might be worth the wait later down the road. It is up to you what you choose.
Now proceed with formatting your hard drive. A quick format only takes a few seconds. I asked my customer to test the newly formatted hard drive.
Everything went smoothly. I have shown you how to format external hard drive in Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
Another computer support request, from a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This time an individual was concerned with a pop up message that they received on their newly purchased Lenovo laptop computer. Here is their request quoted verbatim:
I got a pop up from Lenovo Vantage that says: “Lenovo recommends that you install these updates to optimize your computer. Please note, the following updates may require your system to reboot more than once. We recommend saving your work in preparation for system shutdown.
BIOS Update – 10 ”. I wanted to find out if this was real, or a scam. Thanks for any help you can give me.”
Lenovo Vantage is NOT malware, spyware, or a scam. This is actually software that Lenovo developed to keep their computers updated. The problem could be is that this software was formerly known as Lenovo Companion, Lenovo Settings, and Lenovo Account Portal.
This software was designed specifically for Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. Personally, I think it is ridiculous when technology companies try to re-brand or rename their software packages. Just keep it the fucking same name or else you will confuse your very own customers, just like in this instance.
Anyways, I was able to remotely connect into this computer and upgrade the BIOS. This individual had just purchased a new Lenovo Ideapad 320 laptop. Whenever performing a BIOS upgrade, you should make sure that your active current AC adapter is plugged in.
You do NOT want your laptop to power off during a basic input output system upgrade. This type of disaster could potentially cause your computer to never boot again, no joke. Your computer will need to restart.
Your BIOS cannot get upgraded while your computer is in use. Basic input output system upgrades are much easier than say ten to twenty years ago. Depending on the hardware manufacturer they are as simple as opening the maintenance software, in this case, Lenovo Vantage, and checking for updates.
This software will notify you that there is a BIOS update available. Select this update and then go ahead and proceed with the download. You will obviously need an Internet connection.
Once this basic input output system update is finished downloading, you will be prompted to install the update. You will be warned that you are about to upgrade the BIOS and to make certain you want to perform this action. Also, when I upgraded this computers BIOS it warned me making certain I was installing a BIOS for an Lenovo ideapad 320-15IAP.
This BIOS was actually compatible with two of these laptops. The 320-14IAP and 320-15IAP. If in doubt do NOT perform a BIOS upgrade until you are certain you know the exact model of your computer.
I went into “System” in Microsoft Windows 10 “Settings”. Under “About”, I was able to verify that this individual had a 320-15IAP. Many times trying to install a BIOS upgrade for the wrong computer will result in error, but it is better to become cautious.
I went ahead and kicked off this BIOS update and then the Lenovo IdeaPad 320 restarted. The BIOS update was successful. In closing I requested this individual open Lenovo Vantage to verify if this BIOS update was successful and check for any new updates.
The basic input output system successfully updated. BIOS upgrades will fail, often times due to the fact you are trying to perform this update on the wrong computer model.
