5176  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Simple single exe to show/hide to taskbar on: January 06, 2009, 05:01:31 AM
smiley How about this?

Skrommel

[copy or print]
;RunAndHide.ahk
; Run to hide or show the taskbar
;Skrommel @ 2008

IfWinExist,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
{
  WinHide,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
  WinHide,Start ahk_class Button
}
Else
{
  WinShow,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
  WinShow,Start ahk_class Button
}
what to do with it?

if you dont have AutoHotKey, get that and "install" (portable)
save Skrommels code - save as "RunAndHide.ahk" preferably in your AutoHotKey (scripts) folder
~\AutoHotkey\Extras\Scripts
open saved AHK file

staying slightly on-topic:-

I've sometimes seen this on webpages -
they cant display an apostrophe as in ' (I don't mean the accent`)
or they can have problems with umlauts - instead they show stuff like the †-
I'm wondering is that to do with the site in question or my browser?
(just idly wondering to be honest - and what did they use before the euro symbol came along tellme tongue)

when you say indexer - is it a search programme - okay, it says search. it's a search programme
I would have to second mousers request for a screenshot as I have no idea what interface is like - is there an interface? etc
I also have no idea what a console window is, so, I dont know - maybe it's not aimed at someone like me?

wikipedia:
Command line interface, the typical use of the computer console

I am still in search of finding the right career for me, that will allow me to express my creativity, express my ability to teach others, and allow me to continue to grow in knowledge about computer related things or all things in general. These are really the things that matter most to me

good luck with that Chad, still looking around myself too ...

i.e. it is the "most useful forum" (most helpful, most friendly, etc)

I'm sure there's an ancient chinese quote about leading by example or something like that - if not we'll have to make one up for mouser

I've been living here six years and still couldnt tell you should it be

smiley thanks as ever Ethyar  thumbs up
You skipped the end of that quote tomos. Windows XP can be installed on netbooks and low cost machines until 2010, presumably because MS didn't want to loose that space to Linux as vista is far too resource hungry to be used on those types of machines

I managed to miss that in your quote AND in the linked article, ouch!!
thanks for explanation too

Well, I think the first item to get is this WD Raptor drive.  Newegg has a rebate for it which makes the price $200 for the 300GB model.  In my list, I have the 150GB model for $170, so it makes sense to upgrade that to 300GB for only $30 more.  Unless I change my mind, I'll buy this in a couple of days.

did you get the wrong thread there superboyac smiley or am I reading too quick!

have you checked out that lens -  it might be worth buying lens separately (even if you mightn't stick with the camera) - well, research it anyway.

here's one site
http://www.slrgear.com/reviews/index.php
it's affiliated with
http://www.imaging-resource.com/
which is my first stop for camera reviews (they review full range of cameras - pro included)

one of the camera forums might be good place to post if you havent already

5196  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: mp3 Audio OUTPUT volume normalizer? Any such thing? on: December 21, 2008, 08:30:29 AM
thanks hirudin
I should have clarified - the programme they are both (I think both, Ampa at any rate) talking about is called mp3gain
from their FAQ
http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/faq.php
Quote
My tags ("Artist", "Title", etc.) are not working after using MP3Gain
MP3Gain stores "Analysis" and "Undo" information in special tags inside the mp3 file itself. These tags are in the APEv2 format. APEv2 tags are carefully designed to not interfere with other tag formats, such as the popular ID3v1 format.

Unfortunately, some mp3 players do not strictly adhere to the ID3v1 standard when reading tags. As a result, when MP3Gain writes its APEv2 tags, these mp3 players might get confused and try to read the MP3Gain tags instead of the regular ID3v1 tags such as "Artist", "Title", etc. As a result, the player will show random garbage in these fields.

(To be fair, the mp3 players that have this problem are actually probably trying to compensate for data corruption that can occur in mp3s due to bad encoders, incomplete downloads, etc.)

If you use MP3Gain and discover that your mp3 player has this problem, then here's what you need to do:

    * Select "Options - Tags - Ignore (do not read or write tags)" from the MP3Gain menu. This will prevent MP3Gain from writing any more tags to your files.
    * To remove tags that MP3Gain has already written, simply load the affected mp3s into MP3Gain and do "Options - Tags - Remove Tags from files"

IMPORTANT
If you choose the "Options - Tags - Ignore" option, then you will not be able to automatically undo changes made by MP3Gain. You will still be able to undo any changes, but you will have to manually keep track of what changes you make to your files.



I did use the mp3gain prog. on a bunch of files and then played the results in media jukebox (free version of J River player) and it was seems to work (I had one "quiet" mp3 - must compare it and the adjusted copy to see if I'm just imagining it!)
I see the "analyse audio" in media jukebox too & will try it out on another batch - gotta go wrap christmas pressies now though smiley
5197  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: mp3 Audio OUTPUT volume normalizer? Any such thing? on: December 21, 2008, 05:34:08 AM
mp3gain itself does not write tags, the Windows GUI for it does that.
You can and should turn that 'feature' off as it uses an non-standard tag (APE) to hold the info. Those tags cause problems with some players both hardware and software.

I use mp3gain on every album I rip as part of my workflow.
anyone know what is meant by the bit in bold tellme
I presume
Menu > Options > Tags > Ignore (do not read or write tags)

does that not stop it from completing it's main purpose ?
mp3gain writes both a track gain and album gain tag to the file. It does NOT change the audio in anyway.

i have 4 21" samsung lcd monitors (204b) and have recommended them for a couple of years.  Very affordable and attractive. 

However recently two of the four have developed problems both with stuck pixels and with very long warmup issues has stopped me from doing so.   so right now i would not recommend samsung lcds.
Is there a website somewhere that does reliable reviews of monitors?

The LCD thread - I think the very best "summary" of what's out there monitor-wise  Wink
scroll down to the second post (he says it's in the process of being updated but it's always being updated - if you unsure/want help, register & make a post there - they very helpful

I just tried to convert an M4P file in my iTunes folder and I selected MP3 as the output folder ....
... So i am still looking for a cheap and easy to use program of this kind.

Any recommendations?
Urgently needed.

I'm in the same situation as dudude (urgently needed as well) looking for a recommendation for:-

I want to convert a couple of MP4 and FLV files to mp3
that I only want to do a couple I dont really want to invest in software
so something free would be great - or online conversion or even a trial that would do the job?
