How To Convert .m4a .mka .mp4 to .mp3 (And other formats) With FLV Crunch On The Mac OS

I like listening to audio books and presentations while I’m driving, but the problem is, most of the files that I find online are usually in the form of a video. That makes it unplayable on my music player. I skipped over a few files before I finally prodded myself to go search for a solution on the Mac, and I was pleasantly surprised with what I found. FLV Crunch is a free software that’s made by this anonymous programmer,

Thecus N4100Pro Review – Best NAS for Small Office Home Office Use

The Thecus N4100Pro NAS is a relatively old model, but very affordably priced. It doesn’t have as many features as other models in the 4-bay NAS range, such as the QNAPs or Synologys, but it does what I needed it to do well, which was to be a primary fileserver. Thecus N4100Pro NAS Packaging It’s a pretty nice box, which has the curious imagery of a very happy couple, apparently in bed. I’m not sure how that relates to the

How To Subtract 2 Count Values Using SQL Statements

If you’re developing an application that makes use of SQL statements, you may come across a time when you’ll require to count() values from a table.

For instance, what takes 5 clicks and 30 minutes of your time might just be solved by running one command in Terminal – and that’s underestimating it. Take for instance, this scenario: Sometimes you’ll need to find out the path of something in Terminal when you’re using

How To Make and Run Batch Files In Terminal In Mac OSX

I use batch files sometimes when I was using Windows because it saves a lot of time when you need to run a batch of commands frequently. With a batch file, you save all the commands into one file, and just run the batch file, instead of your gazillion commands individually.
