N

Ran into an issue today where audio was working normally in Final Cut Pro X 10.3.2, but the exported video had no sound. The video and sound was originally recorded using a Canon G7X Mark II. The fix was to delete Final Cut Pro X preferences, as detailed by Apple in their discussion forum.

U

I ran a Ubiquiti Edge Router Lite as my home firewall for a couple of years. The box had a nice GUI with CLI option, and had no problem keeping up with my > 100Mbps Internet connection.
