Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

Questions about Ask Different moderation? Contact me at daniel.ask.different@gmail.com

What do you mean "the data was already messed with"? Do you mean converting to text after the file is open?

comment Can Numbers save a file as CSV?
You had two distinct questions in here. This site works better when there is only one question per question. That way, it's easier for other people to find solutions if they have the same problem. I've edited out your second question, but feel free to ask it separately.

comment How loud a noise can MacBook Air speakers produce?
I didn't expect it was a problem in any range I'd choose to set it to, but I wanted to know what it was capable of, worst case scenario. Thanks for your numbers.

The SPL part of the answer was very helpful. Unfortunately, the iOS solution won't work on my second generation iPod Touch because it doesn't have a microphone. Still, a good tip. I'd still love to know if anyone has already taken these measurements and posted them online.

The public health information about what sounds can damage hearing are reported in decibels. I'm not interested in how much electricity goes through the speaker; I'm interested in knowing how a Mac speaker making the loudest sound it can make compares to a vacuum cleaner or a rock concert or a jet airplane or the ripples of water on a pond.
