Hi all. Welcome to this addition of what the hell is up with my computer. I'm having trouble viewing videos online. [more inside]
I’ve got a book I’d like to give to a cousin who can only do audiobooks, not print or ebooks. There isn’t an audiobook of this title, so I’m going to record it myself. What’s the best way for me to do this with the tools I already have? Looking for tips on the recording itself and the formatting into an audiobook file. [more inside]
There are many ways to stash quick reference info (system startup keystroke combinations, etc) on my Mac. Sticky Notes, for example. What’s something analogous for iPad that displays an editable reference sheet upon launch? [more inside]
I record video on an older iPhone and the volume is usually pretty low. When I play it back for my own use with headphone and/or VLC (which lets me boost the volume) it is usually just barely good enough. The problem is I have a recording that was particularly quiet that I would like to submit to others for evaluation. I can't ask them to do anything special to listen so I need to do something to my original to give the volume a hefty boost. Help!
I am planning to print a book with blurb. I've made the book in in-design using their plugin and their CMYK profile. When I save PDFx files and do test prints on ( giant built into the giant industrial photocopier) printer at work, the yellow in the cover is greenish/muddy/yucky. No amount of replacing the yellow has fixed this. What should do? Bonus question inside that anyone whose used blurb can answer. [more inside]
Can I use a more modern PATA drive (ATA6?) in an old computer (think Intel 486) that used an ata2 drive? Bonus question, what's the best way to format it to show up in DOS 6.22? FAT12? [more inside]
My computer is a wildly disorganized mess. The only way to locate things is to use the search function. It is an archeological dig going all the way back to my undergrad-- I'm now in my late 30s-- as well as every job I've ever held, everything I've ever downloaded, etc., etc., etc. I have time to try to wrangle it into shape this summer but I don't know where to start. How does one sift through, thin out, and create order with a disaster of this magnitude? [more inside]
Situation: I have a folder of audio files stored on my PC I would like to be also stored locally, synchronized, on SD cards in phone1 and phone2. For an order of magnitude idea we're talking a ~20gb folder not like 2000gb. I think the way you do this involves clouds? [more inside]
Are there any Chrome/Opera browser extensions that let you hover over the links in email newsletters and see the ultimate destination of the link? Generally newsletter links are wrapped in some kind of redirect URL so the sender can track which ones are clicked - but as it turns out this makes it way less likely that I will follow any link. Seems like it should be possible for an extension to do the following for me and show the destination but I haven't been able to find such a thing.
I love the Pulp-O-Mizer generator for pulp magazine covers, which I'm pretty sure I found on MeFi somewhere. Can you point me to other fun generators? [more inside]

I am looking for projects that recreate/simulate common software UIs with a twist. Specifically, I'm not looking for projects that do anything useful - I'm looking for art projects, games, and the like. [more inside]

Is it a pain to use an external, occasionally connected drive for Mac photo storage? Or does it Just Work? [more inside]
Somewhere Google once said that photos and videos uploaded via iPhone app won't count against a user's free storage space. My photos and videos now take up 90% of my storage because I uploaded them through the website. Is there a way to download everything (Mac) and re-upload via app to free up my free space?
I am in process of trying to simplify my electronic life. Right now, I have multiple reading apps to deal with my library of books. What are your favorite ebook reading apps this year? A few snowflakes inside. [more inside]

I have a Google Pixelbook and was using it for months in tablet mode to play PUBG Mobile. 2 or 3 days ago I started the game and it told me it sensed I was using an Emulator and would only be pitted against other people using an emulator. I do not know what an emulator is and had not changed anything on my laptop but now when the game is on, there are no controls on the screen, making it impossible to play. What happened and how can I fix it?
