Batch file rename.  I have multiple files I want to rename, that have a date in their name in the mm/dd/yy format. The slashes seem to freak out the batch rename function.  Any workarounds that would help me avoid manually changing each name?

OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, Macbook Air,
Finder batch file rename function. I have multiple files I want to rename, that have a date in their name in the mm/dd/yy format. The slashes seem to freak out the batch rename function and it won't work.  I took out the slashes and worked fine.  Any workarounds that would help me avoid manually changing each name?  I should point out that I want to leave most of the name intact just change the first word in each name.  Also the files I'm working with are in PDF format.

That's a comment in the file. It has no effect at all.

    this also happen with my iPhone 4.. I've used the same laptop for both and same iTunes account x

    What exactly happens when you try to sync?
    Does iTunes see the iPod?
    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    If so have you done anything like update iTunes on the computer since it last successfully synced?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?          
    Does any media now sync to the iPod?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?

    I stand corrected, apparently the first year discount for previous CS customers is still in place.

  • My daughter is using old round airport at college. I set it up without protection. I have an old iBook and I understand I can use that to set the passsword. But I can't seem to figure out where I can set the it?

    My daughter is using old round airport at college. I set it up originally without password protection because my macbook was too new to recognize the old style airport. I have an old iBook and I understand I can use that to set the passsword. But I can't seem to figure out even using the  Airport admin how to establish a password.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

    If it even has that built-in, you would configure it using Airport Utility. It would likely be in the Wireless configuration for first turning on security and then setting the required password. For Macs you should use WPA Personal if the option is present.

  • I would like to avoid itunes change by itself metadata

    I would like to avoid itunes change by itself metadata such artist album, writer,comments,cover artwork. I don't want to use these informations but itunes provide to fill them even I didn't check the "find name tracks nor get album artwork". Thank you very much

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. iTunes does not get info from the internet unless you are ripping from a CD and it queries the Gracenote/CDDB database. Itunes is too stupid to update songs automatically once they have been added to your library.
    I saw the exact same thing as you described, hex numbers in the comments field such as "000B 0A4D  302C...."and it was caused by a WMP update and the settings going back to default. It also filled in composer information, Album Artist, and deleted the track x of y information.
    You may think itunes is doing it because these changes also show in itunes after WMP has done its work.
    If WMP is still doing this, make sure those options are turned off for all Windows user logins on the PC.

    You can use the latest iTunes (11.1.3) on 10.6.8 - if Software Update doesn't provide it (which it should) then you can download it from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

  • Why do I have multiple files?

    I have 2 of each of these files:  iTunes preferences, iTunes library extras, iTunes library genius, iTunes library, iTunes Music library, sentinel and I have 2 folders that are named album artwork. I tried to delete one of each but then everything got deleted from itunes but good thing that I had the files so I got everything back. Why is it that I have more than one of these files and where should these files be located in? because I have the files in different places in the music library. Please help me...I really do not want to mess things up so I'm afraid to even touch these files.

    I'm not aware of a way to run multiple instances or different versions of photoshop at the same time on windows.
    Assuming of course they are all installed on the same operating system.
    On mac versions you can running two different versions of photoshop at the same time, but i don't think that's possible on windows where it
    appears that only one version of photoshop can run at a time.

  • ZIP File has damaged contents - Multiple file download

    Hi,

    Some files are not opening correctly after unzipping the ZIP file.
    Example-1: some PDF files gives out message that " "

    So in all, the content of generated ZIP file are damaged.
    Any idea why this is happening?

  • Filer warning of creating multiple files even though only one is created

    I'm using the Apt tool with a custom program that I wrote to autogenerate some Java classes for my project. Unfortunately, the Filer is throwing a warning. Even thought the below code is only called once, I get a multiple create warning. Any ideas what's causing this?
    Mark McKay
    Filer filer = env.getFiler();
    PrintWriter pw = filer.createSourceFile(indexClassName);
    warning: Attempt to create 'C:\dev\cvs.kitfox.com\scarlet\gen\com\kitfox\scarlet\\Index.java' multiple times

    I disocvered that this error was coming from the fact that my processor was being called twice - once for my original soruce files, and then again to process the file I had just generated. Once I handled the case of the reentrant call to process(), I was able to avlid this warning.

  • Is it possible to have multiple lines on a phone but only have one of the number ring on that phone?

    I have a client who has four number on his phone. Extension 4709 is the clients number. He also has 4715,4725 and 4712 on his phone. Is it possible to make it so only 4709 will ring on his phone? The client is running CME 10.0
    New here and new CME so any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Joseph,
    This would be configured using the "button" (s=silent separator) command;
    From;
    http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucme/command/reference/cme_cr/cme_b1ht.html#wp1050318
    Cheers!

    button
    To associate ephone-dns with individual buttons on a Cisco Unified IP phone and to specify line type or ring behavior, use the button command in ephone configuration mode. To remove an ephone-dn association from a button, use the no form of this command.
    button button-number {separator} dn-tag [,dn-tag...] [button-number{x}overlay-button-number] [button-number...]
    no button button-number {separator} dn-tag [,dn-tag...] [button-number{x}overlay-button-number] [button-number...]
    Syntax Description
    button-number
    Number of a line button on a Cisco Unified IP phone that is to be associated with an extension (ephone-dn). The maximum number of button-ephone-dn pairs is determined by the phone type. Note The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7910G has only one physical line button, but you can assign it two button-ephone-dn pairs.
    separator
    Single character that denotes the characteristics to be associated with this phone button. Valid entries are as follows: •: (colon)—Normal ring. For incoming calls on this extension, the phone produces audible ringing, a flashing icon in the phone display, and a flashing red light on the handset. On the Cisco IP Phone 7914 Expansion Module, a flashing yellow light also accompanies incoming calls. •b—Beep but no ring. Audible ring is suppressed for incoming calls, but call-waiting beeps are allowed. Visible cues are the same as those described for a normal ring. •c—Call waiting. Provides call waiting for secondary calls to an overlaid ephone-dn. See also the o keyword. •f—Feature ring. Differentiates incoming calls on a special line from incoming calls on other lines on the phone. The feature-ring cadence is a triple pulse, as opposed to a single pulse for normal internal calls and a double pulse for normal external calls.
    •m—Monitor mode for a shared line. Visible line status indicates whether the line is in-use or not. Monitored lines cannot be used on this phone for incoming or outgoing calls. •o—Overlay line. Multiple ephone-dns share a single button, up to a maximum of 25 on a button. See also the c keyword. •s—Silent ring. Audible ring and call-waiting beep are suppressed for incoming calls. The only visible cue is a flashing ((< icon in the phone display. Note In Cisco IOS Release 12.4(4)XC and later releases, the silent ringing behavior is overridden during active night-service periods. Silent ringing does not apply during designated night-service periods when the s keyword is used. •w—Watch mode for all lines on the phone for which this directory number is the primary line. Visible line status indicates whether watched phone is idle or not.
    dn-tag
    Ephone-dn tag that was previously defined using the ephone-dn command. When used with the c and o keywords, the dn-tag argument can contain up to 25 individual dn-tags, separated by commas.
    x
    Separator that creates an overlay rollover button. When the overlay button specified in this command is occupied by an active call, a second call to one of its ephone-dns will appear on this button. This button is also known as an overlay expansion button.
    overlay-button-number
    Number of the overlay button that should overflow to this button.

  • I have a Seagate 2TB external hard drive partitioned with one partition of Snow Leopard (my computer is running Lion). Can't seem to reboot using the option key. Any ideas as to what's wrong?

    I have a Seagate 2TB external hard drive with 3 partitions, one for Snow Leopard - my computer has Lion. I cannot seem to boot from this hard drive but I could yesterday. Any ideas?

    Didnt help. The night I asked this question I was able to reboot from the external hard drive after running Disk repair (which said everything was fine). Tonight I have tried again and cannot boot from the external. So I tried the Safe Mode restart and then chose restart with the option key held down as well as shutting down and trying holding down the option key while turning on the power. I have never been able to reboot just choosing restart and holding down the option key. Whenever the reboot from the external has worked I've had to shut down and hold the option key while turning the power on. Now that is not working. My computer is brand new as is the hard drive. I don't know where to go from here.
    I can access the drive just fine while I'm in Lion. I just can't boot up using it. Help!

  • I have an I phone 4 that I use in Singapore, but would like to use it in the US while on holiday. How do I cahnge out the sim card, and is there anything else that I need to do.

    I have an I phone 4 that I use in Singapore, but would like to use it in the US while on holiday. How do I change out the sim card, and is there anything else that I need to do?

    Ignore the other post (the one from Brendan), he has no idea what he is talking about.
    Read your manual (you have a bookmark to it in Safari on your iPhone or put iBooks on your iPhone and download the manual from the iBookStore) and it will show you how to remove the microSIM from your iPhone. AT&T is not tourist friendly and does not offer a pay as you go plan for visitors with an iPhone. If you are going to be here for a short time you can probably buy a pay as you go microSIM and use it before AT&T notices, if it is going to be for a long time that won't work.
    There is a 3rd party company that will sell you a microSIM that will work with AT&T but they are pretty pricey.
    Finally, you can get a pay as you go microSIM from T-Mobile to work with your iPhone but you will only have EDGE data speeds.
