How To: Convert AVI Files to Ipod Format with WinFF

The title pretty much says what this tutorial is all about.

Cut because I like you. )

Little tip: If you click on the options, you can have it shut down after it's done converting. That way you won't have to randomly check the command screen that pops up to see if it's done.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them!

How To: Use HJ-Split to Join Files

I know some of you like to split large files to share them [have you tried to e-mail a complicated and many layered psd file? It's difficult at best], but not everyone knows how to use programs to rejoin them. So, here's a quick and dirty step-by-step tutorial on how to join files split by HJ-Split.

Image kinda heavy. )

How To: Deauthorizing A Dead Computer For ITunes

I'm posting this because I had to google for the answer, and I needed it. It's actually easy.

First, you need to be on a computer that has iTunes. First sign in and go to the iTunes store. Then go to View Account. I had to do this by clicking on that top corner button with my iTunes id.

Where it lists how many computers are authorized on this account, there's a button that reads "Deauthorize All" that you have to click.

Yes, this means you'll have to reauthorize all of the machines you want to be able to play your music, but it's the only choice when you have one [or more, like me] computers dead to the world.

Note: You may only use this feature once per year. The Deauthorize All button will not appear if you have fewer than 5 authorized computers or if you have used this option within the last 12 months.

How To: Getting Semagic to Post Tags to InsaneJournal

Yeah, I can't live without this feature, to be honest. After digging through the comments at ljwin32_sema, I found the answer. Now, I'm a technical n00b most of the time, so it took me a second to figure out what was meant by "you run regedit (start/run), open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\alex semenov\livejournalU\user_[your username]\" and therefor was stuck from the get go. However, I figured it out, and, having done so, will share the how to [with images] with those who are as clueless as I am.

I'm running Window's XP, and therefor know not how to do this with anything you're running that's not extremely similar. If you run something different, and work out how to do this, feel free to let me know [images are great] and I can add it to this post.

Oh, let's get into the computer's inner programs! )

Now, a word on tags. If you post as different users from the same client and don't want to share tags between journals, it's pretty simple to do. Go to your program file for Semagic and locate the file named taglist.txt. To separate which tags go to which journal, now, just open that and save it in the same place as taglist.USERNAME.txt. For example, my taglist file for this journal would be called taglist.lilbreck.txt. Don't forget to clear the new file after/before you save it.

edited to add in a link to a tutorial from [info]dossier on how to back up your files before you go messing with them. Tutorial is in this comment.

Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
