1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: At last: MP3 Lossless!!! on: January 13, 2010, 04:43:00 PM
Try 7zip or rar. The main difference of the lossless compressors is sometimes a small function before compression similar to this one:
for (t_audiosize x=0; x<wavlen-1; x++) { wav
  • = wav[x+1]-wav
  • ; if (wav
  • <0) wav
  • =0-wav
  • ; }
... That´s all
Um... really?



Also, Exact Audio Copy (EAC) is lovely indeed, it interfaces neatly with both LAME for MP3 encoding and FLAC for lossless.

P.S. In the United States, judges can and do order defendants in criminal (and some civil) investigations to unlock files that they have password protected. So if you're "keeping company with naughty men," as Captain Malcolm Reynolds would say, your password "won't protect you much from Lawman."

Which is why a hidden volume was created. You can hand over the decryption keys to the outer volume and there's no naughty data at all. Wikipedia: Plausible deniability in cryptography

Updated first post with link to 0.9.5.

(edit: Oops, sorry for the double post...)

Nope, mouser. It's on my side. Fixed in the upcoming 0.9.5 smiley

Also, the swedish characters "åäö" aren't displayed in the results correctly
I'll have to look into hacking some Unicode support into the plugin. Problem is that mouser said that FARR isn't Unicode aware, which complicates things...

I successfully changed "ev" to "kittens", works just fine.
So, now we have to launch FARR with the paws key?
Mewbe.

Is it possible to customize the alias? I'd like to use " searchphrase" instead of "ev searchphrase" because that's much faster to type.

You can do that in FARR's plugin configuration dialog. I successfully changed "ev" to "kittens", works just fine.

Also, nudone: It seems that in UAC-enabled OSes, ie. W7 and Vista, non-privileged programs can not send Windows messages to privileged programs. I'm not sure if you can, or if it's sane at all to set FARR to run privileged, but if you did that, it probably could communicate with Everything.

Actually, that particular message only appears when TinyEv can't send the query message to the Everything IPC window. I'm not exactly sure why that would happen, though. I'll try and investigate...

Maybe this could help you with making Everything work with its usual startup procedure and still run privileged?
10  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR Plugin: TinyEV (Everything integration) - 0.9.4 - 11 June 2009 on: June 11, 2009, 11:55:07 AM
Oh dear. If Everything is running as a service, there might be an issue with the privilege and desktop separation in UAC, Vista and services.
I personally have Vista with UAC disabled, so I can't exactly help, other than making sure that the desktop the Everything service is running as is an interactive desktop.

However -- don't you like how TinyEv informs you that something's wrong? tongue That was mouser's idea, actually. smiley

same test for the script. it failed, doesn't support unicode. Sad

Oopsy. Let me fix that!

That version should handle

(b) unicode filenames (as long as it can decode the command line...)
Picture proof here!

Heya. I wrote a little (literally) FARR plugin for Voidtools' Everything content search engine, since the other one was somewhat sluggish and large. This one, on the other hand, seems to be quite snappy and small (less than 16 KiB! :D), hence the name.

However, it doesn't come with a built-in settings dialog (oh no!), so if you want to change the only currently available setting, the scoring mode, you'll have to hand-edit an .ini file. I'm sure you'll cope. :) Also, this does not require the es.exe shell; just a running Everything instance.

Any comments, bug reports and suggestions are welcome, however I may be off on vacation for a week or so.

Download here:
  FARR_TinyEv-0.9.5.zip (18 283 bytes) SHA1: 95a9126765a18fd64a7a3325c2fe6eb4d60ded4a

  Archived:
  FARR_TinyEv-0.9.4.zip (18 234 bytes) SHA1: 8e95113b32f008b53c9cffca9aa94f1694ed1f38

Changelog:
0.9.5: Added regexp support.

How to install:
  Copy the folder enclosed in the ZIP file into your FARR Plugins directory, and instruct FARR to rescan plugins (Options -> Plugins and Updates -> Click To Examine And Configure Plugins -> Find and Reload All Plugins).
  I recommend disabling the other Everything plugin in case you have it installed.

Tips and tricks:
  Prefix your search with a dollar sign to use regular expression search.

I guess I was unclear in my Python script post, but it also adds the zero-byte files with correct modification dates >__>
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recreate files but without content to target drive on: June 09, 2009, 02:15:09 PM
I wrote a 45-line Python script to create a contentless ZIP file that duplicates a directory structure for you smiley.

It's a command line script. Invoke it using "python maketree.py target-zip-file.zip mydir1 mydir2 ..." You can combine multiple trees into one zip.

Source code here (public domain). If you need an .exe version, let me know.

Hmm, .kkapture could maybe do the trick. I'm not sure though, since it says it's meant for full-screen apps, but who knows! http://www.farb-rausch.de/~fg/kkapture/
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Adding text 'silently'? on: May 30, 2009, 12:46:46 PM
A simple "take note" batch file, let us call it takenote.bat, that also notes the date and time (Windows XP and above, I think, due to the command extensions used) would be...
[copy or print]
@echo off
if x%* == x goto e
date /t >> todo.txt
time /t >> todo.txt
echo %* >> todo.txt
echo ------------------------ >> todo.txt
goto q
:e
start todo.txt
:q

Basically, what that does is take the user's entered note (takenote Feed the cats!) if given, or shows the current todo.txt file if no parameters are given (takenote).
The only con I can think of here is that the date and time are somewhat messily on separate lines. I'm not that hot on the syntax for Windows's batch files to make it concatenate those on only one line.

Hope that helps!

It gave me the message, then started to leak memory, didn't quit. With a non-contested CPU usage (was playing World of Warcraft while I first tested it Wink ) it jumps to around _400_ megs in less than 5 seconds.

I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2, and a nForce2 integrated chipset with audio.
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Record Source Selector on: September 12, 2006, 02:46:29 PM
Soundzwörg failed for me: "No input lines found", then it started leaking memory; it was at 49 megs when I ended the process...

Can you release the source? Please? Pretty please?
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Record Source Selector on: August 17, 2006, 08:21:51 AM
That is for sound card selection, not the recording inputs of one sound card... so not what I want. A good find anyway smiley
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Record Source Selector on: August 16, 2006, 04:56:00 PM
A simple tray app with a popup menu for choosing between the different recording sources for the Windows mixer would be _just_ what I need now. (Also a volume control for the selected source, with 10% or 5% increments.. then it'd be perfect) smiley
