There are a couple of things that I cannot imagine doing when surfing around the internet. One is RSS/Atom to stay on top of new things on websites that I am watching (I wrote about it in a post: Why RSS still matters in 2021? ).

When I started working for my employer , they used an on-site server and file storage with overnight backup to external drives. All been limited with the internet speed (which in England is quite crazy that business parks rarely got access to an inexpensive fibre connection, where at home you can have cheap Full Fibre), but when things change (or rather the company need to invest in change), we moved it into the cloud.

We chose Microsoft 365 as our provider.

Once migration completed and people used to use the new way of accessing their files (which haven’t have been different with the integration of the OneDrive app and Windows 10, apart from links to files), I needed to find a method, how to have a backup of all files in case of emergency (or accidental removal of important files by an employee).

Without going into costly online backup solutions I decided to build my backup system and I made it.

Even if your business is trying to migrate from on-premises Windows Server into the cloud, in most cases, you can achieve what you need for just £3.80 per month per user. The money well spent. Let me show you why.

Recently I have been looking for a simple and easy method to convert ringtone or a song from MP3 to M4R, a ringtone format used widely in iPhones.

The conversion from MP3 to M4A and later change of file extension to M4R is not something difficult for myself, however less experienced users this can be challenging.

Because of that, using various methods I decided to prepare something, that till be working on just dropping MP3 file and double-click on specified file to ret in short moment ready ringtone for use on our phone.

I have prepared couple batch files and used for this purpose FFmpeg converter. This is the final product from my work.
