In Topic: GE fridge TBX22ZABLRWW makes loud clunk-clunk when compressor shuts off

Broken motor mount inside compressor...only permanent fix is to replace compressor..I have seen units go for years like this.


I sure hope mine is one of those that goes for years!


objectively.....Waaay more than your fridge is worth.


Thanks for answering the question I probably should have asked!

When I want to attach a photo to a message, ON MY Phone, it lets me get the pictures from my evrenotes as well.

I would like to be able to do that from my computer, or TAB as well, but I dont know where it stores the file;


Instead of trying to pull the file into an existing mail message, try launching the evernote app and then either copying the photo, or see if everynote has a "share via email" button.


(One reason I prefer iOS over Android is that virtually every app lets you "share" its data via email, twitter, facebook, etc. Everything is nicely integrated.)

Ok, works in Chrome, but not IE 11. WTF?


Can do some things in IE that don't work in Chrome, and can do some things in Chrome that don't work in IE...




Can you paste into text boxes on other websites using IE? And what things aren't working in Chrome?


I agree that you should check for malware. I recommend using the free version of malwarebytes.

Shelves, not baskets. How do those shims work? Are they installed horizontally from front to back, just below where the existing holes are?

The next biggest problem is unpatched programs like Java and failing to install Windows updates. Set those to automatic.

Very few apps or websites actually require Java. I removed it from my Mac roughly a year ago, and haven't missed it.

Don't buy that fanboy crap that a mac can't be hacked

I'm not a fanboy. I'm a full-time computer consultant who removes viruses from Windows machines almost daily, but hasn't seen a virus on a Mac in well over a decade.

You don't seem interested in citing the results of this year's pwn2own contest, so allow me to share them:

Pwn2Own 2012 has concluded with Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox all being compromised. Apple’s Safari was the only browser to be left standing…

I never said a Mac can't be hacked. But I'm not aware of any Mac viruses or drive-by downloads that have spread in the wild. All the examples about which I've read have been from researchers and the pwn2own contests. (Last year there was some malware that exploited a flaw in Java, and managed to infect roughly 0.5% of all Macs, which is actually quite a lot. Apple no longer bundles Java with Mac, so that risk has been mitigated.)

If market share were the explanation, then one would expect the number of Mac viruses go to up as Mac market share goes up. But the opposite has happened. Before Apple introduced OS X, there were roughly 65 known examples of Mac malware. Since then Mac market share has tripled, but Mac malware has dwindled to almost nothing. (Excluding trojans, it's in the single digits!)

​Your argument also doesn't explain the Witty Worm, a nasty bit of malware that targeted an vulnerable population of only 12,000 computers. If such a small group of computers attracted a hacker, then surely the roughly 70 million Macs currently in use should invite attack.
