If I'm using Word for Windows, I can double click at the bottom of a page to create one big page. But if I double click at the bottom of a document inside Word on MacOS it opens up the footer prompt. Does Word for Mac have a similar "join pages" feature?

Hi AskMeFi. Can someone tell me how to combine 350 text files into one large text file so that the original filenames and dates
are included above (or below) each entry? I'm using Vista Home Premium and they are all generic .txt files. I'm moving all of my notes into Evernote but want to save the names and dates of the individual txt files.

I have a podcast that downloads as multiple segments over multiple days. Its format arrives as YYYYMMDD_showcode_segment.mp3; so, for example, one download might result in files as 20090323_goofa_01.mp3 through 20090323_goofa_21.mp3, and also within the same download
20090324_goofa_01.mp3 through 20090324_goofa_21.mp3. What I'm looking for is a Unix script (shell, perl, what have you) that would look at a directory and look at what dates are represented there, and let me join all of the segments together by day. I can use mpgtx -j to do the actual joining; I'm looking for the code that would let the script determine what dates are in the directory and then get each day's segments united into a single MP3 for that day's show.

I want to rip a movie from a DVD to its elementary streams (.ac3 & .m2v). I can do this using the Stream Processing\Demux option in DVD Decrypter, but because the video is spread across several VOBs, I end up with several video files. So - I then have to rejoin these video segments, which I'm using the Join command in DOS for. It works fine but I'm wondering if there's an easier way to do this? I'm open to Mac options too.

I'm trying to merge simple contact data from a bunch of single tables into one big text (csv) dump. The problem is that not all fields are present for each user. e.g. one user may be missing an email. Because of the missing field, my current (big and ugly) sql query will not return all the rows.

I have a set of about two dozen DVD-ready MPEG-2 files that I'd like to combine into one file without re-encoding. What's the easiest way to do this? I can do under XP or OS X, but XP is preferred. [more inside]

I'm going on a six month exchange to Lyon, France, in August and I'd like to play football (soccer) while I'm over there. I can play at a reasonable level, and I'd be in open womens agewise. Ideally I'd play through university (Lumiere) or in a club with a similar group of people, but I'm having trouble finding specific club information online. [more inside]
