Default Questions about the "end of Windows 7"

Paul on Fri, 08 Mar 2019 00:02:45 -0500 typed
in alt.windows7.general the following:

What I hate are the companies which I know have moved, moved then
closed, closed moved and closed again, and Yelp still has reviews
to recommend the company Oh, I just looked. (It's not there
anymore.

I'm cranky, been trying to find replacement wheels for a Rollator
(four wheel walkers). Search on "replacement Rollator wheels"; it
recommends Les Schwab (major tire franchise). Yeah, right. Find 6"
wheels, at Home Depot. Search again using their search terms "Walker
6 in. Replacement Wheels", but change the 6 for an 8. Not sure how
"Adult Tall Aluminum Push Button Crutches" fits in there.

Arrgh.

Search results can vary by time of day.
It may require up to 24 hours to succeed at this.


Good. Now, search for - and find - 8 inch wheels. My rant is
about all the extra, irrelevant, "hits" that I have yet found a way to
tell Amazon (or many other business website) that. I. do. not. want.!
There used to be a game: construct a query which returned only one
result. Nowadays, it would be "enter a legitimate search string, and
report the least relevant result on the first page."

It is analogous to Microsoft's "Help". I copy the error message
"Error 395: cannot access file" and search, it responds by telling me
about how wonderful Microsoft Access is for handling data bases. As I
said at the time "If I were to ask MS help for info about fixing the
car's trunk, it would tell me all about how wonderful trees are."


reminds me of a search I was doing on a California database. Every
search term I thought would narrow the search, instead returned more
hits.

Yes. Odd, isn't it? I was looking up auto parts stores
the other day and they had a correct listing for a brand
new Advanced store, but they also list another store
that's been gone for over a decade. Apparently they don't
actively manage their listings but rather just accept
them from companies. What I used to do well with a
Yellow Pages is still all but impossible online.


That too.

One of the places had a comment, "we've moved to Cedar street, but
Yelp has yet to catch on."

I ran into a site that only had 8 inch wheels and no 6 inch wheels.
Keep trying. Don't forget to use

8"

Do not use

eight inch

as that won't work (most of the time).

I've been using 8", 8 in. 8 inch, and still getting shovels,
rakes, car parts, and holiday offerings in Spain.

I'm looking for a single replacement part, not the whole bloody
Rollator, even if it does have 20 cm wheels.
