What’s the Difference Between FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS?

What’s the Difference Between FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS?

Mac Software
Macs support a variety of file systems. By default, they format disks with the Mac-only OS X Extended file system. But, if you plan on using an external drive with both Macs and PCs, you should format the disk with the exFAT file system instead. You’ll need to choose between several file systems: OS X Extended (Journaled): This is the default and is only supported on Macs. It’s also known as HFS+. This file system is necessary if you plan on using the drive for Time Machine backups. OS X Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled): On a case-sensitive file system, “file” is different from “File”.

Posting to WordPress Blog via Email

Wordpress
Built into WordPress is the ability for the software to check an email account and post each message it finds to a blog. This serves as a quick and easy way to send an email message and publish new content. To set this feature up, the fist thing you'll need is a custom, secret, email account.

Second, it stores any changes you make while using Thunderbird (for example, changes to account settings and changes to the toolbar). When you install Thunderbird it creates a profile called "default". This profile will be used automatically unless you invoke the Profile Manager…
