1526  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Single hotkey to call an AddressBook on: April 13, 2011, 10:08:40 PM
I don't know if I'm missing the point here, but FWIW, Thunderbird looks like it supports a command line option "-addressbook":

I wonder if an AutoHotkey or AutoIt script wrapped around that could be of any use...

Visualization (manually looking for pauses) and pause detection are starting to feel essential here -- both mp3DirectCut and Audacity have these.

I mistakenly tried MP3Cutter and then examined the brief online description of MP3 Cutter Plus -- I didn't find the aforementioned features in either of these.

@ f0dder:

Thanks for the comments.  I have found working with larger files in Audacity to be unpleasant, but haven't found the UI to be too much of a turn-off.  What I have been hoping for is decent scriptability, but I don't get the sense that has been going anywhere productive.

@ Curt:

Thanks for the warning!

If you ever need to do something more customized...Macros in Notepad++, Emacs, etc. might be worth checking out:

I tried out the "Pause Detection" functionality -- I ended up adding and removing some points but it seemed worth using.

Also tried out the following bit mentioned in the FAQ:

Quote
I miss the "Append all/selection to..." save option!

It's not longer necessarry since mp3DirectCut has virtual Cut, Copy & Paste. Open a second instance of the program where you copy the part you want to append. Then paste the selection the end of the other track. "Save all..." creates the combined file. You can also paste multiple selections. Before saving, the program does not copy real audio data but only references. So you must keep every file until you saved the result file.

[Minor point: in 2.13, I didn't find a "Save all..." -- found a "Save complete audio..." item that seemed appropriate though.]

mp3DirectCut's UI sure feels unusual  huh  I'm not sure I'll remember how to use it on a subsequent occasion...

After I got through with splitting, I found:

  http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=files&i=split
  http://wiki.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Splitting_recordings_into_separate_tracks

I think I'd remember what to do with Audacity, but I imagine it would take a fair bit longer to finish because of the exporting to mp3...

@ f0dder:

What are the sorts of things you don't like about Audacity?  I'm not a huge fan or anything, FWIW...

@ Curt:

Didn't know about Code-it Software.  Thanks.

P.S. In my testing I found that leaving a bit more silence than I expected near the splits seemed to work better -- at least in one case, I got the sense that there was some lost audio.
Could easily be the case, since mp3directCut avoids re-encoding to MP3 - that does mean it can't work on millisecond intervals, but has to work at the MP3 frame size instead.
Thanks for the remarks.

Inspired by them, I did some searching and found the following at a Wikipedia page for mp3DirectCut:

Quote
Edit positions in the file can only be placed at the start of an MP3 frame (of which there are typically about 38 per second).
...
The documentation warns that navigating a song does not, in all cases, land on the start of an MP3 frame. The documentation does not guarantee correct results in all cases.

I tried Ampa's suggestion (mp3DirectCut) and instructions and they seemed to work  Thmbsup

Thanks Ampa!

Please share more details of what you tried, e.g. what file (it's full path information would be nice and what the path displayed in the title bar of the Windows Explorer window it was displayed in was) was selected when you pressed ^+c, what other Windows Explorer windows were open when you pressed the key combination, and what you expected to happen.
1541  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shortcut Creator on: April 06, 2011, 04:04:10 AM
I tried both of those configuration files and they both seem to work fine here.

Does the functionality work via the context menu?  That is, if you bring up the context menu via ^+c (control shift c) and choose "In Explorer windows", does it work?
1542  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shortcut Creator on: April 06, 2011, 03:44:42 AM
Have you tried a different key combination in your ini file?
1543  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shortcut Creator on: April 06, 2011, 03:16:36 AM
I'm not sure I understand your question, but if you don't have Firefox running, does the problem occur?
1544  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shortcut Creator on: April 05, 2011, 09:47:42 PM
I have assigned Control+Shift+W to create shortcuts in opened folders, but don't go well.
Does it work with a different combination?

FWIW, it seems to work here.

When you come out of hibernation and see that, does it work properly when you click the refresh button/glyph (or use the tray menu to refresh)?
I tried both and they both seemed to work.
1546  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: April 05, 2011, 05:29:01 AM
Trying out v1.0.6 build 1 (Unicode build) here and noticed that sometimes after waking from hibernation I see the following sort of thing in the notification area (is that an appropriate term?):

[attachthumb=1]

When I double-click on the right-hand icon, I typically see a window like:

[attachthumb=2]

Is this to be expected?

When trying to reproduce the situation, I think I had more luck if I waited a while before waking the PC from hibernation.

Thanks for your ongoing efforts  Thmbsup

If you want a warning beforehand: install Stylish ...

Or Link Alert
Nice!  I think I'll try Link Alert first (only one thing to install here).

Thank you both  Thmbsup

Sounds like a nice idea.

I didn't figure out whether either suggested program could remind one periodically.
1549  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to make Firefox Not Open PDF Files on: April 03, 2011, 08:07:58 PM
In Firefox 4

Tools > Options > Applications > Application/pdf  I set to "always ask"
FWIW, that's the setting I found when I took a look just now.  May be it's the default if you don't have any PDF software "installed"...I tend to use SumatraPDF portably.
