comment Pros & Cons of Lion over Snow Leopard on a Macbook A1181 with a SSD drive
Why would you stick to an OS that's been superseded by at least two major versions? Note that this question is too broad and opinion-based.. everyone's gonna give you their own two cents here. An SSD can never hurt anyway.

Why can't you install the Windows Media Feature Pack?

comment How to remove all Hyperlinks from a .pages Document
The point of this question was to not have to do it for each link individually.

comment How to bypass wifi restriction using iphone 4?
Ask whoever is providing that WiFi to lift whatever restriction there is. You can't change that.

comment Recursively fixing image file extensions in Linux
@MorphingDragon What shell or version of Bash are you using? Did you disable brace expansion? Or is there no such file in your directory? Run shopt -s nullglob before, maybe, so that the glob doesn't expand in that case.

comment How to expand a Network
This has nothing to do with Google Chrome. Also, large-scale networking and sysadmin questions are off topic for us. The question is likely too broad for Server Fault

comment How to split multiple videos from a single VOB file?
Hm. I'm afraid ffmpeg can't identify the chapters in the VOB. Perhaps mplayer can? I can't help any further now, unfortunately.

comment How to copy multiple files and move them to multiple folders using terminal for Mac
You just take the entire block of code and copy-paste it to the terminal. It should output 500 lines, something like cp IMAGE_1.jpg IMAGE_2.jpg ... IMAGE_9.jpg /Users/matt/Desktop/bigcities/FOLDER_1/, for you to inspect that it's doing the right thing. Once you're sure, you need to remove the echo and then paste it again, which will do the actual copying.

@MarcusJ Read again: "the PNG input, which usually isn't downsampled at all (4:4:4)"

Please define "appearing in bits" and be more specific about what happened, what you did, and what the status is.

comment Downloading Mountain Lion
@Tetsujin Legal or not is hardly relevant here, as international laws differ. The main issue is that OS X is not supported on non-Apple hardware, so we can't help people with it.

comment How can I convert a movie file to make it smaller?
Matroska being most compressible? That's quite misleading. It's just a container.. it doesn't have any significant impact on the resulting file size. Also, changing the bitrate has nothing to do with "losing frames". Furthermore, just because MPEG (MPEG what? MPEG-1? MPEG-2? MPEG-4?) is old doesn't mean it's slow to decode.

comment What characters are forbidden in OS X filenames?
This does not fully answer the question like the other answers did. The file system may very well support every character, but the OS layer is more complicated. See Gordon's and Daniel's answers.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a social problem, not a computer one.

What do you mean he made his own website? Where is he hosting it? Inside your LAN?

comment http audio stream program with 192kbps no encoding
"Unencoded" audio is at least 1400 kBit/s or more if you want somewhat reasonable quality. That already requires sampling and quantization. What is your exact question? What have you tried already?

Can you show a screenshot of the document you're on? (Please use a fake address) Are you writing your text normally, or are you using text boxes?

comment How to push changes from a live deployment web server back to the git repository
Can you, during a deploy, first commit the local changes on live and then merge it with the production branch? It's quite a mess for every deploy, but I don't see any other way (not that experienced with Git though..)
