When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Alexa bug just for Canadians! ;)
« on: December 18, 2020, 03:57:20 pm »
I just set up a new Echo Show 8 and set the language to "English (Canada)", even though I was warned it might not work correctly. But I thought, what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, a lot! Basically most questions I asked were met with "Sorry I don't know that one", even for something simple like a recipe. As soon as I changed the language to "English (United States)", everything worked correctly. Ugh.

no bug, just not available.  a few years ago, I wanted alexa to have a british accent.   Though I got the accent, I lost a few features... And I had to know some differences in words, like flat for apartment, lift for elevator, and others.   after a few days decided I did not want the accent anymore.
