Thank you so much. For some reason, I really got a brain lock on this
one and could not get past it man.
I'm all ears.
Be in the working directory.
The last item in the command line is the name of the archive you are
"Good to know" (Says Angelina Jolie, "Lisa" in "Girl, Interrupted", as

"Jam this into my aorta!" and advises her that her aorta is in her
You can use the name of the movie as the archive name, but leave off
the .avi, or .mpg. RAR will add the proper extensions.
You can leave the .avi, or .mpg, in the archive name, if you add
".rar" at the end. Example... "A real movie name.avi.rar"
You need to put quotes around names with spaces.
Goes without saying by now.
If you put the archive name in quotes, without the .rar added, the
archive will not have the ,rar extension. It will still unpack
properly, but will look odd. I just made some that had the old naming
style; the first had no extension, and the rest had .a00, .a01, .a02
as the extensions. You could, of course, use these on Usenet, just to
rattle the newbies cages. (He says, with an evil smirk) :D Expect
serious flames from that move!
Heh! I remember those days. Yep, that might just throw the newbies into a
tussle. They get all bent when they post over a Gigabyte of unkown movie
and the newsgroup wants a thumbnail contact sheet.
If you're going to post these through Usenet binary groups, remember
to also post adequate par2 volumes, for repairs.
Wouldn't even *think* about not including parity volumes for restoration.
I still remember the days before even par came out with mirror.exe, all
day long was "Please repost part 28", "Part 27 damaged on my server,
please repost", "Parts 42-45 all damaged, please repost". Man that par
stuff really did put an end to all of that. Such a deal! I can still
remember how amazed I was that a single parity file could reproduce ANY
damaged archive file. If that was the case, how come I could not just
download a single parity file, then copy it over 5 times and name the
copies sequentially upward, and how come that would not work. I tried it
of course and no, it did not work.
Nice chatting with you. Take care, imotgm.
