I am not familiar with file converters or file sizes for that matter, but I noticed when downloading a television show from two different sources on my Macbook Pro, one file size was a lot smaller, the mp4, while the other was a lot larger, the avi. It was the same show and there wasn't much difference in picture quality, so I don't know why one download was 60mb while the download from the other source was 341 MB! I just wanted to find a free video converter that has a high success rate of converting existing avi files to mp4.

I want to share with all those who are victim of such long path files
Long path files are those files which have a path having charcters more than the limit allowed by windows,ie approx 200
Whenever we want to change,delete,move,cut,omit,share or install such file windows give error like file is copy write protected,it is used by some other application or user,is blocked etc

David Berry wrote a nice article about the commons, with a link to a pdf containing his complete article. But the link appears to be broken. Does anyone have this article, or know how to contact Mr. Berry? (Or if you are reading, sir, then ... :):)
Thank you kindly!
The "ISSUES" tab on the home page is not working! Can we get that fixed? Thanks
There was a power outage over the weekend that caused our NT Windows Server to have problems. Major problem rightnow is that the shared drive/data is invisible. Inside Disk management it says "Disk Offline". Really need to get this disk back online for our users to access their data. If it helps, this server is running RAID 5. Appreciate to hear from anyone on this site. Thank you in advance.
I suspect that my computer may have been infected by malware. One of the main problems is not being able to use Google in any capacity. Any suggestions for a good free malware detection removal software.?
A good talk by Richard Stallman has been posted recently to Utube (in 14 parts, each of 10 minutes). I aim to make a transcript of this talk, but I cannot see any information about where or when the talk was given. This information would be very helpful in a short introduction to the transcript.
Any information or pointers pleae?
Richard Stallman On FOSS GNU And Freedom 1 of 14
I am a software engineer by profession. My work involves developing software for display devices that run WinCE. Programming language used is C++. I am good at C and C++. I can understand python code and write the same by referring to docs.python.org . At home I use Ubuntu linux and I am learning basic system administration. But when I search for linux programmer jobs, most of them are related to kernel development or developing board support packages or system admin jobs. I wonder what do any company expect from the applicants when it comes to kernel related work or driver development.
It is really good to see the move towards electronic books and materials. There are many really innovative and very effective ways of electronic media for study material, like for e.g., www.funnelbrain.com, which I have started to use. Hopefully we will see an adoption of an effective platform as well.
I switched to Ubuntu about a year ago after a frustrating relationship with weak32 Vista. Recently in the news, there has been much hype about W7 and how it is an improvement to weak32 Vista and XP. My question is - How does it compare to major Linux distributions in terms of security, resource management and stability?

I was able to have ubuntu recognize my printer (Lexmark-9000 series) via USB; however, the printer is unable to print the test page and the printer states: "processing-printer is on line." then it goes back to idle. Does anyone know what I should do next. I have read the post in FSM- very helpful, but no success.
