How to transfer photos and ring tones to your cell phone

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 04:32:27 +0000

By far the most frequently asked question I get from people is "How do I transfer a photo from my computer to my cell phone? (or vice versa)". Cell phone manufacturers often don't ship software with their phones that would do this for free, because they'd rather make money on transfer fees. Windows doesn't provide much help either. For example, I bought a Motorola Razr v3 phone long ago and it only came with a user's manual and a charger. There was no software for transferring any files to my computer, and nothing built into Windows XP or Vista that even recognized my phone. Here are a few ways to transfer photos or ring tones from your computer to your cell phone: 1. USB Data Cable 2. Bluetooth 3. Email 4. Text Message If you have a smart phone... these aren't the droids you're looking for. If you don't have a smart phone (iphone, android, etc) then you might still find this article useful.  Transfer with a USB data cable You can transfer as many photos or ring tones as you like to your cell phone in one shot, using a USB Data Cable that connects your computer to your cell phone. Windows does not come with software to recognize your phone and handle the file transfer however, so you'll need a copy of DataPilot (or similar program) which works with all major phone types. Fire up DataPilot and plug one end of the USB data cable into your phone and the other end into the USB port on your computer. DataPilot will display a list of the existing photos, ring tones, and videos on your cell phone. Choose the folder on your PC that contains the files you want to move, select the files (or folders) and click the transfer button to copy them over to your cell phone. You can also copy the other way, and use DataPilot to transfer photos or ring tones from your cell phone to your computer, and they have a version of DataPilot for the Mac that works the same way. Transfer using a Bluetooth connection You can also transfer photos, ring tones, and videos from your computer to your cell phone using a wireless Bluetooth connection.Bluetooth is built into most computer systems and has a 30-foot range. If you have Bluetooth enabled on your system, you'll see a Bluetooth icon in the lower right side of your Windows task bar. You can also open your Control Panel from the Start button, and if you don't see a Bluetooth icon then you don't have Bluetooth on your system. If your computer doesn't have Bluetooth built-in, you can get a Bluetooth adapter like this one, that plugs into one of your USB ports). Most phones ship with Bluetooth disabled to save on battery life, so you'll first need to enable Bluetooth on your phone, and then pair it with your computer. I've covered Bluetooth pairing in another article titled How to Pair a Bluetooth Device with your Computer. Once you've paired your Bluetooth phone with your computer, you can easily transfer files over the wireless Bluetooth connection. Transfer using Email Not all phones support email, but most people have smart phones (iPhone, Android, etc) that let you send and receive email. If that's the case then you can just send yourself an email with your photos attached, and that email will show up on your phone... download the attachments from the email on your phone, and you're good to go. However, if you have a lot of files to transfer, these first two approaches can mean a lot of emails or text messages. Transfer using Text Messaging You can send a text message from your computer just by using the right email address, and attaching the photo or ring tone to the email message. For AT&T/Cingular customers the email address is For example, if your cell phone number is 691-548-1294 then you'd send an email to and it would arrive as a text message on your cell phone. Once you receive the text message on your cell phone, you can view the photo or ring tone and save it as your wallpaper or in your phone's audio library. Category: Cell PhonesRingtones[...]

How to create a ring tone for free using iTunes

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 04:27:40 +0000

You can create ringtones for free with iTunes using the steps outlined below, and can upload them to your cell phone with a USB data cable or a Bluetooth connection. I'm assuming you already have your song loaded in iTunes, and you can refer to other articles in the iPods and MP3 Players forum if you need instructions for loading songs into iTunes from your iPod or a music CD. 1. Set the song length to about 30 seconds Right-click on the song in iTunes and select "Get Info" from the pop-up menu. Choose the Options tab and change the Stop Time to 0:30 for 30 seconds of play time. This won't change or damage the actual file; it just tells iTunes to only play the first 30 seconds of the song (plenty of time for you to answer your phone). You can change this setting back to full length after you create your ring tone. 2. Configure the iTunes MP3 Encoder Configure the MP3 Encoder built into iTunes to use 22khz and mono encoding (the format used by cell phone ring tones). Click the Preferences menu and then choose the Advanced tab. Click "Importing" and then choose "MP3 Encoder" from the Import Using drop down. Choose "Custom..." from the Settings dropdown, which will display an "MP3 Encoder" dialog like the one shown below. 3. Convert the song to a ringtone Convert the song to ringtone MP3 format by right-clicking it in iTunes and selecting "Convert Selection to MP3" from the popup menu. iTunes will make a copy of the song and you'll see that the time will change to 30 seconds. Send the ringtone to your phone using a usb data cable or Bluetooth. NOTE: Do not select "Create Ringtone", as this option will charge your account, and also only works with songs you have purchased through the iTunes store. Here's the finished ring tone I created: ACDC-ringtone-you-shook-me-all-night-long.mp3 4. Transfer the ringtone to your phone You'll need to download software to transfer your new ringtone to your phone via Bluetooth or a USB data cable, something phone manufactures don't include with their phones. You'll also be able to use the software to transfer pictures and videos, so it will quickly pay for itself after just a few free transfers. I recommend a program called DataPilot that works with a USB data cable to transfer ringtones to your phone - it works with all major phone types and lets you transfer multiple ring tones, photos, videos, contacts, etc at a time. When you run DataPilot, it will open a file explorer window and you'll be able to copy any music files from your hard drive to your phone. iTunes stores it's music files in your "My Music" folder in Windows XP (under "My Documents"), and in your user folder in Windows Vista (e.g. C:\Users\rickysays\Music\iTunes\iTunes Music). You'll use DataPilot's file explorer to open this folder and from there you'll be able to select music files and transfer them to your phone. 5. Set your new ringtone as your default ringtone Now that the ringtone is on your phone, you can set it as your default ringtone. For the Motorola Razr, this involves entering Settings and selecting Ring Styles. Choose the second option, which ends with "Detail", and scroll to find your ringtone (hint, scroll up instead of down, since the newly added ringtone will be at the end of the list, and scrolling up will pick up the last item on the list). Other phones will have slightly different menu selections, but the concept will be the same - find the audio file on your phone and then set it as your default ringtone.

How to Start a Blog

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 03:33:34 +0000

Many of my friends (and family members) have said to me "So Rick... how do I get started creating my own blog?"... and I've had the privilege of helping some of them to take that first step towards what would become both a passion and a higher quality of life for them. In this series, I'll walk you through the process of creating a blog, from start to finish. It will only take a few minutes, and it's easy enough that you don't even have to be a geek like me to be up and running without having to phone a friend or ask your resident computer geek. The series will focus on 6 key areas: Web Hosting Domain Name Wordpress Installation Making it Look Amazing  Adding Content Promoting Your Blog 1. WEB HOSTING Assuming you have enough content to blog about, you'll need a place to host your blog, otherwise known as a web hosting provider. That's just a fancy way of saying "a place to store your pages on the Internet, so others can view them".  Choose the right web hosting provider. There are lilterally dozens of web hosting providers to choose from, and they all offer very similar features and pricing. The important thing to consider is how they handle outages, server problems, or even just the occasional call to check up on your web site. That's why I've used Hostmonster for over 15 years to host more web sites than I can keep track of. They've always been available on the phone and very fast to fix things, and they've always been professional and helpful along the way. For this tutorial I'll use Hostmonster as the web provider, but they all work just about the same so you'll still be able to follow along if you're using a different one like GoDaddy or 1and1. 2. DOMAIN NAME A domain name is your website name. Each website has an address where Internet users can access it, which is called a domain name, and each domain name has to be completely unique - just like an international phone number is unique. Check if your domain name is available. You can search for available domain names by visiting Hostmonster and clicking "Domain Check" at the top of the page. You'll be asked to choose a hosting plan, but you won't have to actually sign up until you've found the domain name you want (and you can change the hosting plan at any time). Enter the domain name you've had in your head all this time, and see if it's available. Hostmonster will automatically suggest alternatives for your to consider, if the name you want isn't available. Reserve your domain name. Reserve it now - before someone else thinks of the same one and snags it ahead of you! Once you find the domain name you want, then you can enter your credit card info and purchase the domain for a one, two or three year time period. I recommend just signing up for a one year period for now while you're just getting started. You can always extend that later when your blog gets popular and goes viral. With your web hosting provider chosen and your domain name reserved, you're ready to install your blog. 3. WORDPRESS INSTALLATION It's important to choose a blog platform that's easy to use (especially for people who are not very technical or don't know any HTML) yet crammed full of useful features. Wordpress is hands-down the most popular and user-friendly blogging platform out there. So let's install your blog! When you first log into your Hostmonster account, you'll see a list of widgets and the one you want is titled "Install Wordpress" (it's almost like they just knew you'd eventually want to start your own blog someday, right?)  Go ahead and click "Install Wordpress" and then click the green "Get Started" button. Enter the domain name you reserved, and then click "Next". The installation wizard will ask you the name of your site (the human-readable name that visitors will see at the top of your blog) and the admin account info. Use something you'll remember, because this is the account you'll be logging into your new blog with, once it's set up. It only takes a few seconds to create the blog from here, s[...]

How can I transfer my itunes songs and videos to my Blackberry Curve?

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:56:12 +0000

Question: How can I transfer my itunes songs and videos into my Blackberry 8330 curve?

Answer: Blackberry curves let you play mp3 music just like an iPod, and you can transfer songs and videos from iTunes to your Blackberry using an SD Micro memory card and a USB card reader.

Here's how to transfer music files from your computer to a Blackberry:

1. Plug an SD Micro memory card into your computer.

Blackberry Curves come with 64 megs of built-in memory, which is barely enough for even a single music album.

(image) Fortunately, the Curve also has a memory expansion slot that allows up to 4 gigabytes of SD flash memory - the same amount of storage as an iPod nano. You can get a 3-in-1 microSD/miniSD/SD Kit from Wireless Emporium, which is enough for thousands of songs.

Combine it with a USB card reader (also available for a few bucks at Wireless Emporium), and you'll be able to plug it directly into your computer or laptop and transfer songs or videos to it from iTunes. 

2. Copy music from your computer onto the SD Micro card. 

The trick is knowing where to find your iTunes music files on your computer.

  • On Vista you'll find your iTunes music files in C:\Users\your.username\Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music.
  • On Windows XP it's under My Documents\My Music\iTunes. 

3. Plug the SD Micro card into your Blackberry.

The memory expansion slot is located behind the battery, so you'll need to turn off your Blackberry and remove the battery to get to it. The memory expansion slot takes SD Micro flash disks, which are about 1 cm in size.


This approach works on both Windows and Macs.

How to copy pictures from your iPhone to Windows

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:48:39 +0000

The iPhone's built-in camera makes it easy to snap decent quality photos, but the process for copying those photos to your computer using iTunes is clunky and a little different than you'd expect from most digital cameras.

Fortunately it's easy to just copy photos from your iPhone to your PC using Window's built-in photo importer.

1. Plug in your iPhone to your computer using the usb charging cable that comes with your iPhone.

Windows will detect your iPhone and ask you what you'd like to do:


2. Click "Import pictures" to start the import process.

3. Enter a keyword tag to let you easily find your pictures after they've been uploaded to your computer. The keyword tag will be used for the folder name that's created during the import.


4. Click the "Import" button to start the import process. You can also choose to remove photos from your iPhone once they've been uploaded.

Once your photos have been copied over to your computer, Windows will open the Photo Gallery and will show you the pictures you've just uploaded.

How do I add or remove a hard disk partition?

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:45:56 +0000

Hard drives start with a single "partition" that holds the operating system, your applications, games and all of your important data, music, photos and videos. You can split your hard drive into multiple partitions, which makes your hard drive appear to be more than one drive (C drive, D drive, E drive, etc). It's still just one actual hard drive behind the scenes, but your computer will treat each partition as a separate hard drive. This makes it possible to create several file systems (either of the same type or different) on a single hard disk. For example, I store all of my software programs like MS Office and Adobe Photoshop on my C: drive in a 100 GB partition, and all of my data files on a D: partition that's 200 GB. They appear in Windows Explorer as two separate hard drives, even though they're really both on the same 300 GB drive that has two partitions. Partitioning your hard drive has many benefits, including: Improving Performance  Over time, your hard drive becomes very cluttered and messy. You can significantly improve your hard drive speed and organization by separating your operating system, applications and important data. This enables your hard drive to find files faster and easier. For instance, large hard drives with only one NTFS file system typically have a very large Master File Table (MFT), and it generally takes more time to read this MFT than the MFTs of hard drives with multiple partitions (because each partition has fewer files).   Protecting Files  Partitioning may be customized for better data protection in the case of a system crash. If one partition is damaged, none of the other partitioned file systems are affected, and the drive's data will still be salvageable. This makes it easier to recover a corrupted file system or failed operating system installation.   Organizing Files  You can also improve the efficiency of your system by dedicating partitions to digital movie processing, photos, email mailboxes or browser cache.   Running Multiple Operating Systems  Partitions allow users to have more than one operating system on a single computer. For example, you could install Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows onto different partitions of the same hard disk (so they don't conflict) and be able to start your system with the operating system of your choice. Windows unfortunately does not provide any partitioning software or commands that let even advanced users manage partitions, unless you're starting from scratch with a new hard drive (or are willing to reformat your existing drive, which deletes all data from the drive). You'll need a third-party software program to create or remove partitions on existing systems, especially if you want to retain your existing data. Here are a couple programs that make partitioning your hard drive a safe and easy task: Partition Commander 10 (Editor's Choice Award - Computer Times) is one such program that safely organizes your hard drive into partitions so that your favorite applications, games and even your operating system run faster. ​Simply follow a few automated steps and you're done, and it works on all flavors of Windows including Vista. You may also have an existing set of partitions and wish to merge them all back into a single partition. Partition Commander lets you move unused disk space from one partition to another while still retaining the data on each partition - something that Windows can't do by itself.  Acronis Disk Director is another partition manager that earned 6 of 6 stars and a "Recommended Award" from PC Pro. Disk Director lets you partition new or existing systems, and also focuses on recovery of damaged partitions. Automatically or manually merges, splits, resizes, copies, and moves partitions without losing data. Installs different multi-boot systems for your children, your work and for software tests. Backs up and restores critical hard drive sectors, and lets you edit the [...]

How to Completely Backup Your Data, Programs, and Operating System Files

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:38:22 +0000

I have a confession to make: I've never been very good at backing up my important system files (or any files in fact). I was one of those guys who literally never backed up their hard drives in over 10 years. That all changed a few months ago when the motherboard died on my wife's laptop, and I lost a year's worth of family photos after re-installing Windows and accidentally deleting all the pictures out along the way. Fortunately, that story had a somewhat-happy ending to it, since I was able to retrieve the files with the help of a professional data recovery service. Since then, I realized I needed to get serious about backing up my home computers. Here are three options for backing up your system (hint: the last one is the best). Manual Backups This is where you manually open Windows Explorer, select the files you want to back up, copy them and paste them onto another drive or burn them to a CD/DVD. It's better than nothing, but it's VERY easy to to forget important files that are stored in various places on your system. Take email messages: they're stored several layers deep under the Document and Settings folder, and it's easy to forget to back them up. And even if you remember, there are numerous files that make up an email inbox, and piecing them back together again is a task reserved for serious propeller heads. Windows Backup Windows comes with a built-in backup utility that will backup all the files in your My Documents folder, along with any other files you choose. It will let you schedule backup operations to occur at convenient times during the day or night, and it works fairly well for basic backup operations. It's very slow however (several times longer than other solutions I tested) and on Windows XP it doesn't back up operating system files, software program files, registry settings, security updates, or patches. That's changed for Windows Vista, which does allow you to do a full system backup, but ONLY if you bought the more expensive Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition: To run Windows Backup on Windows XP Professional, click your Start button and select All Programs --> Accessories --> System Utilities --> Backup. You won't see this option on Windows XP Home though - it only comes with the professional version. Windows Backup is poorly named in my opinion, because it really only backs up your DATA and not any actual parts of Windows. If your system dies or your hard drive bites the dust, you'll have to spend hours re-installing Windows, re-applying security patches and service packs, re-installing your software programs like Microsoft Office, and then hope you backed up all of your data files. Disk Imaging / Full System Backups (RECOMMENDED) This solution makes a copy of your entire hard drive, including the operating system, installed programs, registry settings, email, contacts... the whole works. It's the most comprehensive type of backup. There are several disk imaging programs you can choose from, but be sure to choose one that lets you set up scheduled backup tasks to protect your valuable data. That way you can set it to run every day, week, or month so you don't forget to do it. Acronis True Image lets you do just that, and also includes 5 GB of cloud storage that you can upgrade to 250 gigs - plenty of space to back up most systems. This disk imaging program provides reliable image backup and recovery of your entire system – email, music, photos, videos, documents, personal settings, bookmarks, and all your applications. You can learn more about Acronis True Image and Disk Director on the Acronis website. Category: Backup and Data RecoveryComputers, LaptopsPhotos, ImagingSoftwareWindows[...]

How to copy programs, files, and settings to your new PC

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:31:31 +0000

If you recently purchased a new computer or laptop, this tutorial will show you how to copy the installed applications, files and settings from the old computer to the new one. First, here's some background information about how Windows handles installed software programs - which will explain why you can't just copy the software folder and save it to a flash drive.   Windows writes certain "keys" to your computer's registry when you install a program, and makes associations with other modules and/or installed programs. This makes it impossible to manually transfer these settings to another computer. You'll need a software solution to ensure all of the proper files and settings are transferred. Here are two ways to transfer your software programs from one hard drive to another, or from one computer to another: 1. Transfer Software There's a software program called Zinstall that transfers all of your programs, settings and files and does not require cables. Zinstall transfers all of your programs, documents, music, pictures, favorites, emails, accounts, settings - and of course all of your files. Your new computer will feel just like the old one. Your old computer remains safe and unchanged, and nothing is erased from it. The nice things about Zinstall is that you don't have to be a computer guru and you don't need any cables. The product is completely automatic and intuitive to use (video below) and if you can connect both computers to the Internet, then you are all set - nothing else is needed. That means you won't have to wait for the software to be shipped to your location. Just download it, and start transferring. Here's what CNN said in a recent review of Zinstall: "Zinstall WinWin: The product will transfer everything - programs, settings and files - to your new PC. No cables needed." Zinstall works with Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, XP and Vista, any edition, 32- and 64-bit. You can transfer from any Windows to any Windows, any PC model to any PC model. XP or Vista to Windows 10, 7 to 10 or even Windows 10 to Windows 10 are all supported. frameborder="0" height="315" src="" width="560"> Ready to transfer your programs and files to your new computer? Click here to get the software, or click the Zinstall logo below: 2. Disk Imaging Software Another way to transfer programs to another hard drive or system is by using disk imaging software that creates an exact image (copy) of your hard drive. You can then copy that image to another hard drive, another partition, or another computer system. For example, Acronis True Image will create an exact image of your hard drive, including all software programs, email messages - even the operating system itself. You can then take this disk image and copy it to another hard drive or system. Acronis comes with a couple of other benefits including 5 GB of free cloud storage (which you can upgrade to 250 gigs) and a free copy of Disk Director - a powerful program that optimizes your hard drive and manages your hard drive partitions. With either the migration utility or the disk imaging programs, you'll save a lot of time and money by not having to buy new licenses for software that you already own!Category: Backup and Data RecoveryMovies, Video, DVDPhotos, ImagingSoftwareWindows[...]

How to transfer pictures from a RAZR phone to a PC

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:26:24 +0000

Question: "It seems like the only way I can get pictures from my phone to my computer is to email them, which costs about 75 cents a picture depending on the picture size (at least with my Cingular wireless service plan). Is there another way to transfer them?" Answer: Yes, you can transfer photos from your Razr phone to your PC (or vice versa) without paying any wireless provider fees, using a USB data cable or a bluetooth connector. Transfer Pictures To Your PC with a USB Data Cable If you have a USB data cable or a bluetooth connector (discussed below), then you can transfer pictures, video, and ringtones from your phone to your computer. You'll need software to recognize your cell phone and handle the transfer with a USB data cable. There are several affordable programs that will let you transfer photos, videos, and ring tones from your cell phone to your PC. They also let you copy them from your PC to your cell phone. Motorola PhoneTools Motorola's PhoneTools software is built specifically for Motorola phones like the RAZR or the new KRAZR. PhoneTools allows you to transfer photos and videos directly from your Razr phone to your PC (or from a PC to your Razr phone). The PhoneTools' Multimedia Studio and File Transfer Studio let you see all your photos, audio and video clips in the same window. You'll see your computer on the left and your phone on the right. Copying photos from your RAZR phone to your PC is as easy as highlighting them in the right-side window (representing your cell phone) and dragging them over to your file system on the left-side window. That's it - very easy to do. You can also go the other way, and transfer existing pictures from your PC to your phone. The usb cable it comes with charges your phone while it's plugged in, and there's even a ring tone mixer that makes it easy to personalize your phone with custom ring tones. Don't get the PhoneTools software directly from Motorola though (they charge $49.99, which is way too much IMHO). You can get the Motorola PhoneTools software from Amazon for about half the retail price. That's a much more reasonable price for being able to easily transfer photos from your RAZR phone to your PC, and it's a program you'll use all the time. Have a cell phone other than the Motorola RAZR? Windows XP or Windows Vista don't come with software to recognize your phone and handle the file transfer, so you'll need a copy of DataPilot, which works with all major phone types. Fire up DataPilot, and plug one end of the usb data cable into your phone and the other end into the usb port on your computer. DataPilot will display a list of the existing photos, ring tones, and videos on your cell phone. Select the pictures on your cell phone that you want to move, and click the transfer button to copy them over to your PC. You can also copy the other way, and use DataPilot to transfer photos or ring tones from your computer to your cell phone. Transfer Pictures To Your PC Using BlueTooth If you'd rather stay wireless, then a BlueTooth adapter is your ticket. Bluetooth has a 30-foot range, so you don't even need to have the phone right by you to be able to transfer files to it. In fact, you can keep your phone in your briefcase or backpack and still have no problems connecting to your laptop with Bluetooth. Assuming you have purchased a Bluetooth adapter like the one shown above, then you'll need to pair your phone with your computer so they can speak to each other over the Bluetooth protocol. I've provided detailed instructions for pairing a bluetooth device here. The menu options specific to a RAZR phone are as follows: Settings --> Connection --> BlueTooth Link --> Setup --> Find Me You only need to pair your cell phone to your computer once. After that, your phone will be automatically recognized when you plug in the bluetooth adapter and ha[...]

How to transfer photos from a Samsung Galaxy to your Mac

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 20:21:06 +0000

The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with 16 GB of memory, which is plenty to store thousands of high quality photos. But getting them to your computer can be a little difficult. This guide will show you three ways to easily transfer your photos and other files from a mobile phone to a Mac. You'll be a master in no time, and can help your friends figure it out too! Here are 3 ways to transfer pictures from a Samsung Galaxy to your Mac: 1. USB Cable with Mac's Image Capture app When you plug the charging cable into the USB port on your Mac, the built-in "Image Capture" app will open up and ask you if you want to import the photos from your Galaxy. If this doesn't happen, then be sure to set the connection type to Camera instead of a Media Device, so that the Image Capture app will recognize your phone. This approach lets you transfer multiple files in one shot, but does require a data cable. 2. Dropbox Another easy way to transfer photos - or any type of files - is to install Dropbox on your computer and also get the Dropbox app on your phone. Dropbox is a cloud-based service that gives you 2 GB of storage space for free. To transfer a photo using Dropbox, find the photo and tap the menu bar and then tap the Share button. You'll see a list of sharing options, including Dropbox: After you share the photo to Dropbox, it'll automatically be available to your laptop, which you can access using Finder. You can also just click on the Dropbox icon at the top of your screen: 3. Laplink Sync If you want to transfer multiple files in one shot and without having to use a data cable, then Laplink Sync is the easiest way to do it. Laplink Sync comes with software that installs on both your Mac and your Samsung Galaxy, and lets you transfer multiple files over a wireless network connection. Just select your devices (which it will automatically recognize) and the folders you wish to sync, and that’s it! It lets you select photos, videos, and documents; and lets you transfer in either direction (from your Mac to your Galaxy, or from your Galaxy to your Mac). No data cables are required with the Laplink solution, and the file transfer is over a wireless network connection. Click here to get a copy of Laplink Sync so you can transfer multiple pictures at a time, and with no data cables.  Category: AndroidComputers, LaptopsMacMovies, Video, DVDPhotos, ImagingSoftware[...]
