Fingers crossed that this one is going to get approved!!
So, how do you change the "middle" of a word?

Re: [SOLVED] mp3 gain - normalize audio

Audible (audiobook people) requires -3dB. I've used mp3gain, soundconverter, audacity, etc. Audacity is the only one where I can specify the peak in dB. The others allow setting a peak volume, but I don't know how that relates to dB. Unfortunately, I don't know how to use audacity on a batch of fil...

Re: MX Updater wants to uninstall KdenLive, VLC 3.0.5 and an unused(?) nvidia driver

I ran the upgrade and allowed it to remove VLC, then I updated just now and there were four upgrades. I re-installed VLC and all is well.

If you ran the upgrade and lost VLC, don't worry, it's easy to get it back.

Re: Are you a writer?

I'm currently reading a novel where they use cows to power their "hyperdrive." A big starship can cross the galaxy in days on the power of 500 cows. They took the cow that jumped over the Moon and, by selective breeding, went from a short hop to much longer trips. This is okay with me because I know...
