Samsung Galaxy S3 Will Not Obtain IP Address

My Samsung Galaxy S3 refuses to retain it’s DHCP assigned IP address. The first post talked about this solution. Set up your phone manually, statically, on your network.

The key was to keep letting the router assign that IP address using DHCP; even when filtering by MAC address is turned off and the phone is set up statically!

Here is how to check the MAC address of your phone: Settings -> WiFi -> Settings -> Advanced.

Concatenating Media Files

Here is how to join media files with ffmpeg.

Create a file mylist.txt with all the files you want to have concatenated in the following form (lines starting with a # are ignored):

# this is a comment
file '/path/to/file1'
file '/path/to/file2'
file '/path/to/file3'

Note that these can be either relative or absolute paths. Then you can stream copy or re-encode your files:

ffmpeg -f concat -i mylist.txt -c copy output

What to do when great ideas appear during meditation?

Meditation brings silence. Silence provides space for new ideas to appear. It makes sense to record them. Keep a voice recorder near by and capture them and get back to your practice.

It is at your discretion as to whether or not it is your mind providing that great idea or not!
