Emotiscape No. 1

     So for the first time in his life, he found himself in a supportive and accepting environment. You would think that his problems were over, but unfortunately, the trauma had lasting effects. Though people treated him with kindness, he disregarded it as superficial. It was not enough to remove him from his abusive environment; the emotional and psychological wounds were still open and bleeding. And while surface kindness and respect do no harm, neither can they heal. No one could convince him that he was either understood or lovable, and this belief caused him to perpetuate the environment of pain that was the only world he could conceive of.
     Until James came along...

Powershell Regex For Extracting List of mp3 File Downloads

All you need for this script is the URL of the web page displaying all the LDS conference talks, like this one.
  1. Paste the URL address into the script where it says $url = ...
  2. Open up your Windows Powershell ISE.
  3. Paste these script lines into the editor:
  4. Execute.
  5. All mp3 files will start downloading to you documents folder to a subfolder called 'Conference MP3s'
Sorry but I can't claim credit for developing these techniques. I'm just a fairly patient Googler, and put this code together with what I found on the net that worked for me.

Accuracy of script output is not thoroughly tested or guaranteed. Let me know what your mileage is. Feedback appreciated.
