kalos, you really need to do your own research and homework on this.

v1.1.6 - 2015-02-15
    ! Trailing tabs caused folder creation failures.  (Thanks, Clutch)

kalos, as has been explained already, you have two choices:

1) Run the "limiting software" on your router since it's the head of your network.  And, by "limiting software," I mean you would configure Quality of Service on your router.  This is the preferred option but, of course, this assumes your router supports QoS.

2) Run some limiting software (like the aforementioned NetLimiter) on EVERY OTHER DEVICE in your network EXCEPT your laptop.

That's it.  Those are your two choices.

Hi, newlexicon, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

Hi! Would anybody be able to tell me what token to input in order to have my music sorted by artist AND create album subfolders within each artist's folder?

Please read through this post here: https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=19543.msg182194#msg182194

Let me know if that answers your question.  Keep in mind that you will almostly certainly have to use a different template for multi-artist or various artists albums.  My advice would be to start small and use the "Copy" mode so it doesn't mess with your original files.  That way, you can get an idea of how the application works.  Also, make 100% sure that your files are tagged properly.  I cannot stress this enough.  Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.  =]  Let me know how it goes for you.

I have "Request every # of days"  set to zero (disabled) and use the “Refresh all series data now” button every couple of weeks or so.  Do I understand correctly that though the status bar shows it's checking those long ago ended shows in my "Legacy" profile, their data is not being downloaded again and again?  Related to that, a continuing series, say for example one with six previous seasons, downloads only the when-made-available data for the seventh season?

The "Refresh all" button refreshes everything regardless.  The "Refresh every # days" asks the server which series have been updated within a given time frame.

Wouldn't epCheck need to handle just the USA zones and the Arizona no-DST odd-ball?  Just curious; no pressure.

No, as there are epCheck users outside the U.S. and plenty of shows are non-U.S. shows as well.  It's on my ToDo but don't hold your breath (because I'm certainly not  tongue)

1.1.5.166 is working great.  How goes 1.1.6?  Soon?

I haven't added anything since 1.1.5.166 so it's the latest.

Could make a way to select individual series or a profile from the “refresh all series data now” process?  I have a profile, Legacy, where I've placed about 20 old series (i.e. Rescue Me, Firefly) so I can jog my memory on certain episodes, seasons, whatever.

I have no plans for such a feature.  However, the "Request every # of days" option is a sort of "smart" option in that it only updates series that have changed (based on what TheTVDB.com returns) so you might consider using that.

I won't bother you with yet another request for other-than-EST time zones.  Oops.  I just did, didn't I?  Cool

Timezones + Programming = Kill me now.  Take ten minutes and watch this.

What, BTW, is the purpose of the @ column and its ballot boxes in the episodes panel for each series under the Series tab?

Those check boxes are there so you can keep track of which episodes you've watched (if you so desire).  I think the @ symbol looks somewhat like an eye and thought it appropriate for that column.

I use UK Sky router
I don't think it offers anything like that
isn't there a software that will mess with its firmware?

Are you asking if you can run an alternate firmware on your router?  If so, I have no idea without a specific router model number to reference.  Do a web search for your router's model number and see if it's supported by DD-WRT, OpenWRT, or Tomato.  I believe those are the top three alternate firmwares out there these days.  However, I don't think most "standard ISP issue" routers are supported, though, so don't be too disappointed if yours is not.

For the record, I have an ASUS RT-N66U router running the Tomato by Shibby firmware.
60  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: bandwidth manager on: February 11, 2015, 03:36:26 PM
Typically, something like that has to be done on the router itself using the router's Quality of Service (QoS) settings.  Keep in mind that not all routers support this and, even when they do, it can be a hit or miss affair.  Also, it's sometimes called Class of Service (CoS).  Good luck.
61  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Release: Arti (Aspect Ratio Tool for Images) on: February 09, 2015, 11:56:40 PM
TitleArti (Aspect Ratio Tool for Images)
Description Small application that lists aspect ratios for images. Exact ratios are listed in addition to a nearest match ratio based on a configurable preset list.
Supported OSWindows 7.  Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8/10
Website:http://skwire.dcmembers.com/fp/?page=arti
HistoryChangelog
DownloadArti.zip
Screenshot[attachimg=1]

Introduction
There really isn't much more to be said than the description above.  This app was written on request from a photographer and its main focus is to quickly view the aspect ratio of images loaded into its interface.  There are columns for exact ratio (determined by straight math) and nearest preset match which can help to see the nearest aspect ratio for files that aren't pixel perfect.  The software comes preloaded with a large list of aspect ratios but this is entirely configurable.  Of course, the more aspect ratios, the more accurate the nearest preset match is going to be.

Features
  • Load images via the menu, toolbar, or simply by dragging and dropping files or folders.
  • Standard listview interface (column widths and order are saved)
  • Export to CSV function
  • Always on top button

Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run Arti.exe to start the application.  Add some images and behold.   tongue

This is exactly what I was looking for.

Good to hear.  I'm glad you find it useful.

Edit: Solved!I had to save it outside of program files. Works perfectly fine!

If you want to run it within that folder, just run it with administrator rights.

It would be nice if the columns automatically resize to take the space available.

Well, crap.  For some reason, I had that option commented out in my code.  I added it back in.  Here you go:

any more info about that? (couldn't find it - "Windows 7 Application Launcher" is a very generic name...)

Just do a Google search for "7APL" and you'll find all sorts of information about it.

Thanks for telling about SPLAT; Skwire hasn't fully update his homepage, so its "home" is not listing SPLAT.

Yeah, I really need to get off my arse and put up a post, eh?   Grin  Shamefully, it's been over a year since the last post.   embarassed

Look forward to it.

You mentioned malware.  However, please keep in mind that whatever I come up with isn't going to handle any sort of binary file input (if that's what you envisioned).

BTW: Have been using epCheck for some time now.

Good to hear.  I like the way that app turned out.  If you're brave, feel free to try the beta.

1. add a notes column for the entries so I can remember why I added an entry and why its in that position

Added in the latest release.

2. save the launch log file for each launch profile so when I restart the program I can see what has been done and what hasn't  (since you aren't interested in adding checkboxes) - this "history" would display when the program is restarted
 3. Add an option to the Launch Profile to display the last log or start a new one  (there *is* an option already in the program options to "Clear log before each profile launch" - but mine isn't checked and the launch log for the profile is always empty when I restart the program... 1.1.0 build 1)
 4. Option in the menu to clear the launch log for the selected launch profile

Currently, the launch log is not saved at all (per-profile or otherwise).  I need to think this over more before I decide if I want to make any changes regarding it.

I need to install a whole bunch of Windows Update files - .msu files.
I really don't much relish having to add the same command entry for each file.
It would be really nice if Splat had a batch command so I could run the same command on *each* file in a folder.

I'll add this to the request list but don't hold your breath.  Perhaps mouser's Drag + Drop Robot might be of use in this case?

70  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) on: February 01, 2015, 10:23:09 PM
Thanks, guys. That worked.

Good to hear.

I can set up simple 1 to 1 hotkeys, but trying to combine them escapes me.
Example: I set up Shift+Win+G to open Gmail & Shift+Win+A to open Amazon.com. Both work fine.

I assume you set up each in a separate profile, right?  Something like this:

[attachthumb=#]

I tried Shift+Win+Z as a Combo to do both:
  1st I don't know whether the hotkey goes in Filename or Arguments column, so I tried both. Neither worked. OK, probably faulty commands then.
  2nd I don't know the syntax for hotkeys in Splat system, I tried {shift}{win}G & {win}G
  Every variation I try gets the error message: "not launched successfully. ErrorLevel: 2"

You can only hotkey a profile.  That is, you cannot hotkey individual entries so I'm not sure what you're doing here.  If you want to run two URLs with one hotkey, you can assign that hotkey to each profile like this:

[attachthumb=#]

Or, if you want to maintain your original separate hotkeys for each URL, then you can create a third profile with the Ctrl+Z hotkey that calls the first two profiles like this:

[attachthumb=#]

Or, you could do it like this:

[attachthumb=#]

Does this help to clear things up?

Thanks for keeping this app updated. It has been invaluable in getting my music collection in order!

Good to hear.  =]  I'm glad you still find it useful.

The latest feature that was added -- quit after making m3u file -- does not work if a folder is sent to sPlaylistmaker via the 'sendto' menu.

Hmmm...I just tested it via my SendTo menu (I hadn't before) and it seems to work as intended.  Please make sure you're using v1.0.9, though.  See below.

74  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: January 31, 2015, 10:27:04 AM
Jody, what about an option to hide checked entries?
Say you have a long checklist and you don't want to sort it, but only want to see what isn't yet checked?
A view-toggle button to show/hide checked items would be a boon.

Due to the way that the programs saves and loads checklists, this would be rather difficult.   Sad
