3101  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Right-Click Menu Create Folder with Enhancements on: July 15, 2010, 03:23:45 PM
Ask for the new folder name
Create that new folder under the current folder

Easily done to this part.

Change to the newly created subfolder
Create an empty text file named Url.txt
Open the newly created empty text file with Notepad or the associated app for .txt files.
I copy and paste a website url into the empty text file and save it.

1) Do you literally want to see an Explorer window with the Url.txt in it?
2) If all you're doing is pasting the URL in there, why not do this all in one fell swoop e.g. when asking for the folder name, if a URL is present on the clipboard, append that automatically to Url.txt and be done with it.  No need to show an Explorer window or even the Url.txt file.

Your thoughts?

Currently I use a MS-DOS batch file within my Sendto folder to accomplish
this task, but it has a few drawbacks which the new software would cure.
This is my Batch file in case that will help.

What are the drawbacks you hope to solve?

Time is displayed properly again but the bitrate and size are going to have to wait for those types of files.

that would look pretty cool on a shirt with some red and black text (in a communism-style font) saying something cryptic related to "Coding Snacks".

That's what I was referring to in this post: http://www.donationcoder....23403.msg212474#msg212474  However, like nudone and steepadept, I've always thought of it as an oriental style bowl.  I'm picturing two shirts:

  • Black t-shirt.  Large bowl image, red, centered, on the back.  Small "Coding Snack" text on the front, over the left breast area.
  • Polo-style shirt with small bowl image, red, over the left breast area.  Either a black or white polo would look good, methinks.

    * Changed recently added behaviour regarding URLs that are actually
      files.  Instead of reading tags on load, they will be read on actual
      playback.  This should alleviate the slow adding of these types of
      files to the list.
3111  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Idea: DC Cody Tshirts customized for an interest area on: July 13, 2010, 07:32:41 PM
I still want to find a larger picture (or vector drawing) of the red Coding Snack bowl.  That red bowl, along with some "Coding Snack"-related text, would look badass on a black shirt.
3112  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2009 / Re: NANY 2009 Release: Trout (audio player) on: July 13, 2010, 07:20:01 PM
I have ~3500 songs all in the same playlist and when I added them it did read the tags, but it also took a lot longer to add songs.  This wouldn't be so bad if I could start playing while the rest are being added.  Trout tried to play, but the streaming sources kept failing.  I'm guessing this has more to do with the http server I'm using (python -m SimpleHTTPServer) than Trout though.

I doubt is has to do with the server.  Maybe I'll change it so it reads the tags on playback instead of on load.  That way, you'll see just the filename at first and the tags will come in as the files are played.  Would that be acceptable?

Also, the seeking seems to work the same as it did before.  I can't immediately seek to the end of the song, but I can seek short distances until the song loads completely.  Again, maybe the http server I'm using doesn't support it.

This is probably more of a issue with the upload speed of the server.  Are you streaming these from home to work or something like that?  If so, there probably isn't going to be a whole lot you can do about it.

Thanks for you patience on this while I work out what's going to work best.

Make that 11!  I registered here just so I could say that cheesy

Woot!  Another name for the list!   cheesy

Right now I have my music collection being served up via http and Trout is the ONLY player I've found that will reliably play it.  Although it doesn't read the ID3 tags.

Try the latest build I just uploaded.  It should read tags when adding them to your playlist and you should now be able to seek those URLs as well.  Please let me know if it works for you and if I've broken anything else in regards to streams and streaming.

Also, what is the difference between the Shuffle and Random Play Modes?

  • Random plays songs randomly with only a basic check to make sure it doesn't play the same song twice in a row.  This mode doesn't quit until you click stop.
  • Shuffle takes the current list, randomises it in memory and plays each track exactly one time.  Certain things can reset that order (adding songs, stopping, etc.).

Make sense?

    + Added ability for Trout to read tags from and seek URLs that are
      actually files e.g. http://www.site.com/music/song.mp3.  Trout will
      read the tags when you ADD the files so you will have to re-add the
      files in your playlist to see the tags.  (Thanks, ignotus)
3114  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: how to monitor a website for changes? (moving from WebMon to web-based service) on: July 13, 2010, 09:32:08 AM
in the past I used WebMon (http://www.markwell.btinternet.co.uk/webmon/) to monitor some websites/pages for news and updates. Now I'm looking for a free service that does that (almost) in real time - once a day is not enough - and sends me an email if there's an update.

According to the WebMon screenshot, you can set the update-check interval to as little as one minute.  Also, according to the feature list, you can "run other programs when updates are found."  That other program could be a command-line emailer such as Blat...so you could email yourself.  Make sense?

I'm positively humbled to receive such a gift.  Thank you, Chris and mouser.  Thank you to the DonationCoder members, too, for all your kind words and endless Coding Snack ideas.  It's extremely rewarding to create them for everybody and I enjoy (most smiley) every minute that I work on them.  Without you all, there would be no Coding Snacks section.

No doubt we'll all now expect not just coding snacks but full repasts!

C'mon over, I'll fire up the grill.  cheesy

So, is that second version okay?  If so, do we call this one done?   cheesy
3117  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 08:26:13 PM
or can the track number be located to its own column to the left of the filename column?

Unless your files are named in some sort of standard way, parsing out the track number could get ugly.  I'm guessing your files are not fully tagged, eh?  Reading and displaying tags, instead of relying on the filename, would make things MUCH easier for something like this.

shorten it to show only the folders under or after the My Music folder and not the c:\docs and settings\user\my documents.

Try the latest from the same URL.  You may have to clear your cache.  I also increased the scanning speed at the cost of some CPU usage.  I feel it's worth it and you may not even notice it.

I am guess that the 01,02 is part of the file name.  could the sort be set to exclude the numbers?

Not easily, no.
3118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 08:00:46 PM
When I click on the filename column, it sorts by 01 xxx, 02 xxx, etc., instead of the name itself?

Is the 01/02/03 part part of the filename?

Do we have the option to shorten the path file name?

Shorten it to what?  I can make it where you don't see that column if you'd like.
3119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 07:46:32 PM
Please give this a try:

http://skwire.dcmembers.c...snacks/FileParentView.zip

Double-click a row to run the file.

3120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 07:30:24 PM
Do you want to do anything with the list other than view it?  Double-click a row to launch Explorer at the path...or to launch the file in the default player, etc.
3121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 07:26:31 PM
You just want audio files listed, right?  So, anything with the following extensions:

AIFF, AIF, AIFC, MP1, MP2, MP3, OGA, OGG, WAV, MO3, XM, MOD, S3M, IT, MTM, FLAC, WMA, WMP, WMV, MID, MIDI, RMI, KAR, WV, WVC, AAC, MP4, M4A, M4B, M4P, APE, AC3, SPX, TTA, OFR, MPC, ALAC, SHN, TAK

That should cover most all audio formats I know.
3122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print listing of music titles on: July 11, 2010, 07:05:39 PM
1) By "song titles", you mean the contents of the audio file's title tag (ID3v1/2 or APEv2), right?
2) By "path of the title", you mean the path of the audio file itself, right?
3123  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: organize text on: July 11, 2010, 03:20:18 PM
To all the folks suggesting clipboard managers, I think you're missing the point of kalos' request.  He doesn't want to MANUALLY cut/copy and paste, he wants something to automatically parse through a source text file and allow him to quickly send each line to a, potentially, different target file. 

For the sake of easier coding, let's assume a maximum of thirty targets, okay?  That way, each target can have a button as well as a hotkey:

1-10: Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, Ctrl-3...
11-20: Ctrl-Shift-1, Ctrl-Shift-2, Ctrl-Shift-3...
21-30: Ctrl-Alt-1, Ctrl-Alt-2, Ctrl-Alt-3...
...or whichever combos you want.

Would this be acceptable?  Also, you didn't answer my question about GUI design.  What did you have in mind?  Did you want to see the whole source text file?  Or just sentence by sentence as it parses through it?  Or, did you want to leave it entirely up to me?
3124  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: organize text on: July 11, 2010, 01:51:29 PM
Destination files or folders can be something like Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, Ctrl+3, etc. can't they?

Sure...but what if there are, as kalos wanted, twenty destination files?  Or fifty?
3125  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: organize text on: July 11, 2010, 11:25:04 AM
1) I want about 10-20, but practically unlimited
2) both, it would be better to have both options, but for me clicking a button on a window would be faster than a combo

If you want unlimited, I don't see how you expect to create a unique hotkey combo for each destination file.  Your thoughts?  Also, did you have any sort of GUI design in mind?
