I read that removing system Volume Information folders for your Windows partition is NOT recommended.

comment Joining flv files produces much larger output
it seems the ID_AUDIO_BITRATE of the files is different, so -oac copy wont work.

comment Joining flv files produces much larger output
Tried that. It tells me that -oac copy can only be done when the different files have the same codec. According to the details of the 3 files they do have the same audio codec.

comment Joining flv files produces much larger output
I tried adding the option but got an error message: The fafmttag option must be an integer: -o. I got partial succes with -oac mp3lame: the file size went down to 127 Mb, still bigger than the original, though.

I already tried it but got this error: Audio format 0x4134504d is incompatible with '-oac copy', please try '-oac pcm' instead or use '-fafmttag' to override it.

comment What consumes laptop battery when it is turned off?
When I did the experiment of removing the battery, i kept both next to each other but you made me think that when I turn the laptop off it is relatively warm due to use and when I turn on it is colder so a part of the issue could be temperature difference.

I'm using Ubuntu and not Windows but that should not do any difference because I'm not talking about keeping it on standby.

comment Matching html paragraphs with at least one word in all caps
I'm not insisting on regex but don't know any other semi-automatic way to capitalise sentences. In this particular case the html file was done without class declarations. I went through the file and I noticed that all (or almost all) the headings have this in common: at least one all caps word. This is the reason behind my question.

comment sed command working in command line but not in script
Oh boy. I just discovered why it was working. I was editing a copy of the script, not the one I was running. I'm feeling stupid.

comment Substituting a multi-line pattern in an HTML file
This is almost good. I added a ? after the two .* to disable greediness. Is it possible to make the command modify the file instead of outputting to STDOUT?

I don't have to use sed. I'm open to other linux commands.

comment Windows Update failure error 80073712
I tried repairing the installation but each time the installation failed, telling me to restart my computer and try again. I did a clean install and obviously this solved the problem.

I think this is the problem. I already installed the System Update readiness Tool to no avail. I guess I'll have to repair the installation.
