Calling & Messaging With Google Voice


Making Calls and Sending SMS Messages with Google Voice Account

Having Trouble Making Calls, Sending Text Messages with your Google Voice Account?

An Alternative to Using the Google Voice Web Site

  1. Go to your Gmail account
  2. In the bottom right corner you’ll see three icons; a Person icon, the Google Hangouts icon and a Phone icon.  If the contact list isn’t filled, click on either the Hangouts or Phone icon, then click each again.  This should fill the lists with contacts.
  3. To send an SMS message, click the Phone icon, type either the desired recipients email, name or phone number (phone number if they’re not amongst your contacts).
  4. Then you’ll see the ability to either Call or Send SMS; click on your desired action and such will begin.

That’s it; you now know how to place a call or send a message via your Google Email Account.  If you have any questions fill out the following form and it’ll be answered no greater than 24 hours from the time of your request.

I Had So Many Thoughtful Birthday Wishes…

It made me feel like…


  • St. Johns Sheriff’s Department did NOT wish me a happy birthday! (though they didn’t harass me further this day either; looking on the positive side of things.)
  • My mother gave me a very kind gift, it made me happy!
  • I received over 20 birthday wishes on Facebook!
  • Nothing horrible happened!
  • I turned 2663 years old!
  • I had a good time.

Microsoft Tech Support, HUH?

I tried using their trial for System Center, which is comprised of eight downloads totalling near to 3 GB. after downloading all but one file, the site denied me access providing this error:
Access Denied
You don’t have permission to access “http://care.dlservice.microsoft.com/dl/download/F/B/9/FB9B10A3-4517-4E03-87E6-8949551BC313/SC_Configmgr_SCEP_1606.exe” on this server.
Reference #18.1d3c6b68.1477036140.6eca49″

Mind you that I’m a business partner trying to build a Small Business here. I then called their Business 24/7 Tech support line to determine how to get the final file. This was like trying to get Hillary Clinton to admit that she new very well that the attack on Ambassador Stevens had nothing to do with any video period; as you can watch for yourself here:

The Microsoft support professional continued to deny me any assistance stating that Microsoft can’t provide support for a trial product.  Now this fact I actually understand, however, I tried to get her to use logic with BEEP, BEEP, BEEP BEEP, BeEP beEP, Be-eeep; (that was her hitting buttons on her phone in an attempt to get me so frustrated I’d hang up) me to where she’d understand that my problem had nothing to do with Microsoft System Center, that it was their server which was (supposed) to be providing the product that was the prob BEEP, BEEEEEEEP, Beep, beep, BEEEEEPEDY BEEP lem.  (At this point, I told her that I could do the same thing and continued to “beep” her a few times; the beeps never happened again).

To save you of further details, the call continued and got about as far as Congressman …  got with the F.B.I director in trying to find ANY real reason why Miss Hillary Clinton was charged with NOTHING, as you can see here…

And there you have the flavor of my latest endeavor with Microsoft. Please also know that I’ve been purchasing products from Microsoft since 1981 and I as well told the representative exactly this.
*If anyone from Microsoft notices this message AND cares, be sure to message me as I’ll as well post any help provided hereafter.   The reason for this post is to let Microsoft know that they’d be better off simply not providing trials if they’re going to cause and not correct such disrespectful, anxiety provoking and time wasting problems for their Clients and Partners – I’d have a very hard time treating anyone I considered a partner as such!

GTK Proudly Endorses HP


HP Personal Computers and Service – GTK Endorsement
(edited and revised for spelling and grammar – shame on me!)

As a computer professional, I’ve used and worked on most all brands of computers and have come to the conclusion that HP IS the best PC company. Note that one of the most important attributes taken into account here is service; both the very few times I’ve needed it (over 30+ years) and the quality provided in those instances. As everyone has experienced, service time can be THE nightmare you hope never happens and thus to have the quality service HP provides is a true blessing.  Further, I actually dealt with English speaking professionals who actually cared about my ability to be up and running with my computer.  It was quick AND thorough!

My experiences with HP, for the very few times I’ve needed it, have been exceptional. They went out of their way to accommodate my particular monetary and time requirements, neither of which was a contractual obligation. Over roughly 30 years of utilizing hp computers I’ve only required two service requests and i rate both of them 10/10, nothing could have been done better; cordial, professional, experienced, of complete knowledge, timely and further, they didn’t try to escape their legal warranty in any fashion but rather seemed apologetic that i was in down-time with my PC.
HP didn’t just fix my computer! HP fixed everything that was problematic, that which I returned it for, and as we’ll repaired additional components. I use my computer so frequently that in just six months the letters on the keyboard were showing wear and I’d at one time bumped my computer into a wall and thus a piece of the plastic molding was missing; HP saw these problems and under no obligation whatsoever, replaced them free of charge! This is a business ethic I’ve yet to find elsewhere in this day and age of businesses pinching every last penny at the cost of losing many customers. For all of these reasons, GTK rates HP the best computer company in existance!

For those who’ve realized the horrors of poor computer service, both calls and repair, and a problematic computer in general, I sincerely recommend HP as your business or personal computer.GTK Computer Services Inc. proudly recommends, stands by, is a partner of and endorses HP as the best manufacturer of the Personal Computer. Thank you HP and I’m further pleased to advocate your brand of computer and computer products.
