Thanks. It worked

Jay Versluis on How to switch from JFIF to JPEG on Drag-and-Drop in Windows 10

Might it be enough to rename them, instead of converting them? I guess it depends on what app/device is going to display them.

A client of mine sent me a bunch of JFIF files. And i was wondering why in the world would someone use this uncommon file format. I was all grumpy and swearing until i saw this article. Turns out it might not be their fault after all. But now i have to convert all these JFIF images. Still swearing silently in my head though.

Jay Versluis on Commodore 1541 DOS Commands

Ah, I've worked it out: omitting the ID from the NEW command will soft-format the disk.

Oh Dan, you're absolutely right - I've just tried this myself too, and to my complete surprise I or INITIALIZE doesn't format the disk at all. Thank you so much for pointing that out! Now I wonder, how did we soft-format floppy disks back then? I remember there was an option, and if I didn't do it... how did it work? I'll amend the article forthwith.

Thanks for the well written list! One correction, I think: The "initialize" ("I") command does not erase anything. It just loads the BAM into drive memory. You sometimes need to do this after changing disks and to clear errors. The command does not take arguments. (I did a quick check and the arguments did nothing.) It's definitely confusing because the term "initialize" has been used to mean "format" or "erase" in other contexts.

Jay Versluis on How to fix “can’t log into YouTube from Safari” on macOS

Monday, 26th August 2019

I remember that time, and it was stressful indeed. Although it worked for me, another option that worked was indeed to use Firefox in addition to Safari. Don't get me wrong, I love Safari, but it's not cutting the mustard on several fronts. Always good to have a backup and get acquainted with that.

Perhaps it just seemed so long to me... 😂 Wow, 10 seconds is amazing! I remember being thrilled by how fast the 1571 could format disks. I’ve never tried the AR, maybe one day ;-)

The format command may have been slow, but not 10 minutes slow, It took just under 2 minutes to format a disk in a 1541. Until I got an Action Replay cart and started formating disks with it in under 10 seconds, that is...

Pass I’m afraid Pastor Vic, and sorry for the late reply. I’ve never had this happen when I implemented this, but granted that was a few years ago and things may have changed. Did you try to remove the +zip addition?

Tried your code to import epub files into wordpress and it worked, but it downloads epub in zipped format. Any way to download just epub? Your code 'application/epub+zip'; what if i remove +zip? thanks

In my case it was wp_post Auto Increment value which was unset due to heavy database import query break. SELECT `AUTO_INCREMENT` FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = 'Database' AND TABLE_NAME = 'wp_post'; ALTER TABLE wp_posts AUTO_INCREMENT=101

Awesome - thank you for translating this into “human” for us. I always wondered what that routine did.

Jay Versluis on The macOS Installation couldn’t be completed. Now what?

Thursday, 13th June 2019

I have indeed :-) I was hoping to “quickly apply a patch” rather than reinstall macOS though. But if all else fails, I know what to do now. Thank you!

admin user on The macOS Installation couldn’t be completed. Now what?

Thursday, 13th June 2019

The foolproof non-timewasting way is to hold down command-option-r while booting. This loads the most recent version of macos that's compatible with your mac. This will usually get you past those version upgrade blues. Reformat the hard drive, do a clean install then restore from your time machine backup or reinstall your 3rd party apps from scratch and copy your data back manually. You did have a time machine backup, right?

Jay Versluis on ezcap 261 / AGPtEK / MYPIN USB3 – Game Capture Review

Wednesday, 5th June 2019

You're very welcome :-) I've decided to keep my unit by the way, for emergencies. It does an OK job, and having streamed for 6 months now, I've come to realise that doing so in 1080p60 isn't as necessary as I had thought it would be. Using this unit at 720p60 looks great for the money.

Hello and thank you for your bravery ; D It's nice to see people give thorough reviews of more obscure hardware. I might still buy one of those, haha!
