Re: I'm looking for a mass-rename tool for files

I'm working on a little project here with photos, videos, music files, and medical/health documents, receipts, and the like, and could really use a tool that can help me quickly rename related files (or folders) with a common name plus a variable mask of some sort that would result in an incrementi...

Re: TV show dvd bitrates falling badly...

Three examples... You, sir, have a top 5 username of all time! Why, thank you very much! It took me quite a while to come up with that name. I was watching Youtube since the early days(when people with 10K subs were "superstars"), and was on the site for MONTHS as an unregistered user bec...

Re: TV show dvd bitrates falling badly...

. The "waiting" on a price drop is a good idea...if we are lucky. I've learned the hard way to get it while I can. It might go "out of print" and the price skyrocket. Or there might not be a full complete release of the series. (ever) I sweated that over my beloved "Perry M...

Re: TV show dvd bitrates falling badly...

[quote="jmc2"]Has anyone else noticed that dvd producers are not caring about putting out a quality product. Three examples... Big Bang Theory - 10 years of coming out on 3 dvds. Year 11... two dvds and a noticeable drop in quality. But they did save money on a dvd. Lucifer Season 3 also d...

Re: What's a good vacuum?

My Dyson DC50 upright just died and I need to replace it. Looking for some input from my fellow gerbils. What vacuums do you use, like, dislike? The DC50 was OK, but I frequently had to run over things a couple times to pick them up. It did fine on floors, but I found the detachable hose (for crevi...

Re: Decluttering in 2019

So now I mostly don't keep electronics around after I'm done with them. That's the plan, anyway. Now, I have to figure out what to do with all these old cell phones and old laptop batteries...sheesh, where did all this junk come from? :o[/quote] Bestbuy accepts most electronics items for recycling f...

Re: The Sad State of Appliances (in this case, Refrigerators)

Has anybody ordered from PartSelect? I like their "how to" videos, and even learned how to clean my dryer so it doesn't burn down my house, so that's kind of cool. But I've never had to order anything from them. They are open on Saturdays, so I'll give them a call in the morning.[/quote] I...

Re: Rakuten

I got my Micron 1100 2 TB SSD from them. Zero complaints about the transaction. I'd trust them about as much as any other online vendor that isn't Amazon. I bought my first Micron 1100 2TB from them too, via Platinum Micro. It was on a 15% off sale for like $248. Then last October Newegg had a 15% ...
