[Timesaver Tip!] Speed up MP3 audio or video incrementally in QuickTime using Option+Click (Pitch stays the same!)

This looks like a good method of listening to MP3 audio at a higher speed. It’s a bit of a hassle, because the files have to be downloaded first, and then opened in QuickTime, but it’s wonderful being able to speed up slow moving audio!

(vid) Camera Showdown: iPhone 7 vs Advanced Compact | How Far Have Smartphone Cameras Come?

I’ve carried a Panasonic LX100 in a belt pouch for 2.5 years. It’s awkwardly large for a compact camera, but the lens is very sharp, and it has the multi-aspect ratio sensor, capable of shooting in 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9 aspect ratios with full field of view and maximum megapixels. I love multi-aspect, but the LX100 is a tank to always carry. Many would prefer the also very capable, and much smaller and lighter, 1″ sensor compacts.

Glee! Google Set NIK Free — Hallelujah!!!!!!!

This is a great day! Google broke my heart when they killed my favorite photo software. Now they have released their death grip, and will now allow U-Point technology to live on, developed by brilliant Germans.

My prayers have been answered!!!

It’s been a long wait.

Happy!

Trumpeter Swans High Above Our Home : )

A group of about 20 trumpeter swans was just now flying high above our house, circling and trumpeting.

First, one broke off, by himself, heading in the direction towards Potter Marsh, one of their favorite places. Who knows what that was all about.

And it looked like the others were splitting up into a few groups, going in separate directions before I couldn’t see them anymore, blocked by the tall birch trees.

Many believe this all evolved by chance; though, it’s miraculous — a sight to behold!

Without TRUTH there can be no FREEDOM — Do not condescend to the Scoffers, rather ASCEND BOLDLY with your sure words of enduring Truth

When one chooses the path of Truth it often leads to a lonely place. The Truthteller, scorned, and derided as ‘extremist,’ even ‘insane’ must March Forward to the Certain, Clarion call that echos from the heart.

The more decadent the day, the more lonely the walk for Ambassadors of Truth.

However in the end all that will endure is Truth. And those who dare speak it become the legacies of their family lineage, their communities, and yes, even to their Nations.

Do not condescend to the Scoffers, rather ASCEND BOLDLY with your sure words of enduring Truth.

Eternity is kind to Truthtellers, and your Children will be your Truth’s Beneficiary.

(video) HOW To CHANGE PLAYBACK SPEED of a YOUTUBE VIDEO — Pitch Stays the Same!

This saves me a ton of time!

I’ve been using this option pretty much daily ever since posting this in 2013: [Timesaver Tip!] How To Speed Up Online Videos — Offline Too! It’s worked fine in all of the browsers I’ve tried. But recently, in Apple’s Safari browser (all other browsers I’ve tried are fine), the sound muffles slightly when videos are speeded up. The speed boost still works in Safari. I sometimes use it anyway, but for best playback audio quality, browsers other than Safari are preferred. Browsers I’ve tried that have excellent sound quality when speed boosted are Firefox, Chrome and Opera.
