  • Is it safe to delete old DaVinci Resolve 16 updates? ?

    I download the new updates when they come out, but have noticed the old ones still remain, taking up space on my hard drive. It would be cool if they would automatically overwrite the old ones, but they don't. Each update is around 1.3 gb, which kinda makes me think I'm downloading the entire software package again. I have some important incomplete projects saved, and I'm a little concerned that if I delete the old updates, that might mess with my work. Can someone please shed some light on this for me?

  • When manually setting camera white balance, what white balance option do I select from the menu before taking a photo of something white? ?

    I hope this makes sense. You can't take a photo in the first place without having your white balance set to something (auto, tungsten, cloudy, etc). Maybe the answer is that it doesn't matter. I'm not sure. No one has ever explained this to me and it's also hard to find a direct answer to this online. Lately, I've just set my camera to custom to begin with. Then I'll take a photo of something white and set that as my white balance. Is this correct? Keep in mind that I might still have the old custom setting selected (from a photo of whatever white object I used a previous day for example) when I take the new photo. If that's a mistake, should I just delete that old photo and start again?

    So I guess in a way I'm asking how you can really start from fresh, especially given that the auto setting isn't always trustworthy?

  • Is there an existing correct word/term that describes people who do everything aggressively? ?

    To be clear, I don't mean the particular person is angry when they're doing these things. They might be in a very positive mood. I'll give an example. I work with a guy who has this annoying trait. I hear him coming into the lunch room way before I see him. He walks like he wants to stomp holes into the ground. He opens the fridge door like he wants to throw it out the window. When he comes to sit at the table, he slams his lunch box down and it's near deafening. If you don't see it coming, it almost makes you jump out of your seat. He'll pull back his seat aggressively and then sit on it like he's doing a cannonball into a swimming pool. He's a nice guy but I want to punch him sometimes. I genuinely think he's not doing these things to purposefully annoy anyone. His behaviour seems genuine. He also has perfectly fine hearing, so it's not like he's unaware of the noise. I've also met a few other people like this in my life, but it's only been bugging me recently that I'm not aware of whether or not there's a word for this behaviour. Maybe it's a condition deeply ingrained into someone.

  • What do you call voicemail that you can listen to as it's being recorded?

    Like in the movies when someone is ignoring a call on purpose and let's the caller go to voicemail. Then the receiver can choose to let them finish the voicemail or they can pick up the phone and interject.

    I'm writing a script and have discovered I don't actually know the term for that kind of voicemail.

  • In literature, plays, films, etc, what is the technical term for narration that doesn't break the 4th wall?

    I'm talking about narration provided by characters who aren't aware there's an audience. For example, some key terms are homodiegetic, autodiegetic, extradiegetic, 1st person, 2nd person, 3rd person. When I look up these terms however, they all mention that they speak in such a way that they are aware they're narrating to an audience.

    There's doesn't need to be a narrator directly speaking to the spectator for narration to be occurring. Every story has narration in this sense. Can someone please give me this key term?

  • Can someone please help me with figuring out which decent portable external hard drives are 7200 rpm?

    My university lecturer told us we need a 7200 rpm external hard drive with at least 1TB of storage. The one he suggested was an orange coloured Lacie. I've been searching online for ages but in the specs, most of time rpm is not mentioned. It's really frustrating.

  • Anyone else had this experience at college/university? A couple of my friends said they did nothing during their time at university.?

    They graduated and got their degrees. Now when they say they did nothing, they meant literally NOTHING. Not "nothing worthwhile", "nothing fun", "nothing interesting", "nothing difficult" etc. NOTHING. They also both said (these are not mutual friends btw) they didn't study one bit.

    Can someone please tell me if they had a similar experience. Is this bullshit? I'm asking because I'm soon to start university.

  • Why can't I take advantage of my rooted android phone?

    I recently rooted my samsung galaxy mini. I had heard from friends about how convenient it was to have a rooted phone. They mentioned that you can download apps that previously were not compatible with your phone. You could store apps on your sd card, as opposed to being stored on the phones memory, therefore taking up all the place, meanwhile my sd card has loads of unused memory. The list goes on.....

    Anyway, I have now found that since rooting my phone, I have none of these benefits! Why? Do the real benefits only come with the likes of superuser pro? Does the basic, free version not offer anything? What am I doing wrong here or missing out on? Some help would be much appreciated.

  • Which software is good for recording music at home?

    I would like to record tracks from home using my computer. I'm just after something basic and user friendly so that I can lay down some original tracks just to get an idea of what works for writing my own songs. It doesn't need to be professional level software so something that's free of charge would be great. Any suggestions?

  • Will using system restore make my speakers work again?

    I've tried everything and my speakers still aren't working. I've never used system restore before, so I'm a little worried about losing files, but if it makes my speakers work again, it'll be worth it.

  • Seriously! Why are my laptop speakers not working?

    I have a HP Pavilion DV6 using Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

    I have checked to make sure that the devices are working normally and they are not muted. Everything is fine in that department.

    All drivers are up to date.

    I recently updated my BIOS but that didn't help at all.

    What else could it be?

  • Why have my laptop speakers stopped working?

    A couple of days ago the speakers on my Hp laptop suddenly stopped working.

    I have already made sure that my devices are working normally. They are.

    I have searched for driver updates, however, my computer is telling me that I already have the most up to date drivers.

    I have tried to simply restart the computer in hope that the problem would fix itself but that didn't work either.

    Some help please.....

  • Has anyone else appealed the deletion of their question on yahoo?

    I had a question deleted (wrongfully I think) and appealed the decision. Yahoo state that they will let you know of the decision of your appeal within 24-48 hours. It's been like a week now and they still haven't contacted me at all. Then I filled out the "contact us" form on their website and told them about what happened and about how I hadn't been contacted. After filling that out they state that they'll get back to you within 24 hours. They didn't. How the hell are you supposed to talk these people?

  • What is the name of this movie?

    Someone told me about a movie recently but they don't know the name. It's about a school trip to Ayer's rock, Australia. The entire busload of kids disappear except for two of them. They witnessed what happened to the other kids but are too scared to talk about it (and never did). This person said that it's actually a true story. I find it hard to believe as I've been to Ayer's rock myself and my tour guide did not mention it over the three day tour. She told us pretty much everything about Ayer's rock, the entire region and even about the number of people who have died climbing up. A schoolbus full of kids disappearing? Surely she wouldn't forget to mention that right? I've typed all kinds of relative keywords and sentences into google but nothing comes up. The closest thing that does, is a story about a baby that went missing (taken by dingos). I'd have thought it would be very easy to find on google considering the circumstances. Does anyone know of this movie? And furthermore, is it based on a true story?
