comment Can BitTorrent Sync CLI be used to create shares?
Yes, this works. And it's even pretty easy to automatically edit the config file since it's in JSON. Thanks!

comment Find video file position using an image match
A feature like this might be a bit out of scope as direct feature of FFmpeg. But with a small script and some piping this might be possible. I don't know, though, which is why I'm asking. :)

You're right, exact match is not what I'm looking for.

comment Find video file position using an image match
I would think there are some image matching libraries somewhere - combining those with a tool that extracts frames from video shouldn't really be that hard. If such doesn't exist, I'm quite tempted to write one myself. :)

comment What exactly happens when you browse a website in your browser?
@ruda.almeida :) "Nzhôô" is the closest equivalent I could find with a quick search as an Apache term for an exclamation of elation. It apparently translates to "good". (Not sure, unfortunately, whether any of the Apache languages actually use the word in that context, though I would think it likely.)

comment Computer silently stops activity at random intervals to wait for any user activity
@Matt Well, I never did fix it in any sort of proper way. I ended up taping a mouse to a rotating tabletop fan, in order to complete a large data transfer (moving any relevant data away from the thing). After that I moved on to another computer. And if I have any say in it, I'll stay at a good distance from any others like it too... Weirdest thing I've ever encountered, and very comforting to hear I'm not the only one - proves I'm not going crazy. :)

comment Computer silently stops activity at random intervals to wait for any user activity
@TFM However, taping the mouse to a moving object does work since automated mouse movements subverts the issue, while music would have no effect... unless, maybe, if the music had a loud enough bass to move the mouse. :)

comment Computer silently stops activity at random intervals to wait for any user activity
1) It could be some sort of sleep thing, but the computer certainly isn't doing any sort of standard sleep/standby. Those I can trigger from the OS, and they don't behave like this weird issue. E.g. on sleep the screen and power shut down, which doesn't happen when this happens. Yes, the screen really does remain active, and the sudden halt of activity is completely transparent to me, unless I have the computer doing something which suddenly stops proceeding. That's why I only noticed it with this file transfer issue. 2) The system doesn't use encryption, but an interesting thought.

comment Computer silently stops activity at random intervals to wait for any user activity
Attaching the mouse to a moving object is a valid outside-the-box hack to try to solve my actual problem - especially using scripted CD-tray activity is a rather clever idea, I think! But the weirdness of it should definately be noted in the answer in a "If all else fails..." -fashion. I'm saying this because (ahem) I in fact did end up duct-taping the mouse to a rotating table fan for the remainder of the file transfer. (Oh, and it was surprisingly easy to set it up as reliable by making the mouse only rock a bit.) But I of course do not consider this an actual fix for the issue! :)

comment Thunderbird “unified folders” not working after moving my profile
Well your links did lead me to the correct solution, which was to delete panacea.dat and all .msf files from the profile folder. That even retained the folder selection I had on my Unified Inbox. Source: "Phantom folders" mozillaZine article

comment How do I manually mount a linux file system read/write as a normal user?
Thanks! This worked for me with ext3. Note that I had to first mount the ext3 filesystem into some mount directory, then mount that directory with bindfs into the final directory.
