Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderatorâ—†, 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

comment What options are available to _losslessly_ trim mp4/m4v video on 10.8 or above?
I'm most worried about the time involved in re-encoding (these are many multi-hour long videos that I'm taking a few minutes off of), but ffmpeg looks promising!

This answers part of the question, but not how to actually use the program to trim video.

comment Can't delete partitions after attempting BOOTCAMP on my iMac 5k
FYI, it isn't that the mods personally don't like extended commenting, it's that the system isn't set up for it.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about shopping, which is off topic.

comment Stop Image Capture from opening when a new device is connected
While this would indeed stop Image Capture from opening (because it would delete the program), it's often a dangerous course of action to delete system files. This program is a part of the operating system, and deleting it could break other components of the system that expect it to be present.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about running OS X on non-Apple hardware.

comment Yosemite white-screen crash (with avatar)
Asking "has anyone else experienced this" has literally as many correct answers as there readers of the question. If you are asking for a fix, that's a great question, but asking simply for others to confirm that they have or have not encountered the problem is far too broad a question.
