Hi Curt, I would also suggest InfraRecorder http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/ . It's the only burning tool that I've used on windows for some time now. It's small, quick, clean and up to date. There is also a portable version:
http://portableapps.com/a...es/infrarecorder_portable

If you really want to go back to Nero you can download Nero Lite http://updatepack.nl/ and use your licence key on that. It is significantly smaller. It seems to exist in a legal grey zone but has been around for quite some time so I guess Nero doesn't mind that much.

I see your point. Other things being equal I also prefer solutions that don't use GUI controls and require keyboard monopoly during the processing. I'm not so sure if it's worth the double work in this case though. I mean, MPC creates each contact sheet pretty quickly. An hour long video only takes 15-20 seconds. So 50 such videos can be processed in around 15 minutes. That's just a coffee break. While some might need to process many, many more files, I suspect that would be a one time thing in most cases (i.e. to process all videos in their archive). For a one time batch a wait of an hour or two is probably acceptable to most. And once the archive is processed to then wait for 15 minutes every month or two while processing new files is no biggie either I'd suspect (that's roughly the pace at which I record stuff with my DVB-T TV card at least). Or maybe this is just the lazy part of me rationalizing Grin

ExtDesk   v080419
ExtDesk helps you control the primary desktop from the extended desktop.
ExtDesk has a button for opening the desktop folder and a screen that tracks the mouse for easy navigation on the primary desktop.
[attachimg=1]

more info and download here: http://nod5.dcmembers.com/extdesk.html

This is another small program that I made because I needed it myself (the Use Case is loosely inspired by real events smiley) This first version has mostly been testdriven on a single system so all feedback on how this works on your systems is very much appreciated.  tellme
532  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: batch create image contact sheet from videofiles? on: April 19, 2008, 04:08:07 AM
Cool! I had no idea MPC had that. But while a lot of controls are available, the "save thumbnails" actions doesn't seem to be one of them:
[attachthumb=1]
Another reason against switching the script to the web interface is that all users would have to activate/deactivate the web server before using VideoContactSheet.

Does MPC Home Cinema have more controls?
533  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: batch create image contact sheet from videofiles? on: April 18, 2008, 06:54:19 PM
4wd: When I made the first version of the script I searched for alternative ways to control MPC but did not find any. After that I just stuck to the keyboard input method since it worked. But if there's a better way then I'll give it a try.  tellme I'm not sure what you mean by "HTML control" though. I can't find anything that seem to describe that: http://www.google.com/sea...=en&start=10&sa=N . Can you point me to some relevant page?
534  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: tv_out: a shortcut for quickly turning extended desktop on/off on: April 18, 2008, 05:15:23 AM
lanux: I've done this with a script that navigates the GUI for some time but have since then been on the lookout for some cleaner way. And now a working function was posted to the autohotkey forum. I only had to intersect that into my previous code and voila. The autohotkey forum is a great place BTW - it has code snippets for doing almost anything. Thmbsup

Deozaan: Glad that it works. Good call about it running immediately after setup. I updated tv_out accordingly:
v080418: running tv_out.exe directly (=setup) does not toggle extended desktop on/off, only desktop shortcut does that (thanks Deozaan)
http://nod5.dcmembers.com/tv_out.html
EDIT: 
080419: fixed a small variable error from 080418

tv_out creates a shortcut for quickly turning extended desktop on/off.
the shortcut icon changes to reflects the on/off state of the extended desktop.

I have tested tv_out on several different systems without any problems. Post some feedback if you encounter a bug.

Again, glad you guys like it!

Kartal, what do you mean with folder support? An option to create all note files in one specified folder and not the same folder as the file the note file concerns?  tellme
538  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Idea: File note on: April 16, 2008, 04:55:48 PM
Hi, I'm glad you like it!  Thmbsup I did a quick update:
v080417: added ini option to choose file extension for notes (default: txt)
Let me know if you find any bugs while using it.

EDIT: I should add that I'm sticking to .txt extensions for my own notes and instead use the .ini to set a custom tag in the non extension part of the filename. By using the tag "--note" it is easy to search for all and only note files later on even if they have a .txt extension. An advantage with that is that the files works straight away by double clicking on most computers whereas files with custom extensions often needs a setup procedure at least once per computer.

I've now written a better description for FileNoter and placed it on a separate page: http://nod5.dcmembers.com/filenoter.html
I also did some very minor changes:
small code cleanup + commenting
now support two datestamp formats: YYMMDD (=new) & YYMMDD-HHMM

nixx_nl,
I'm glad that you like the program!  smiley

Yes, VideoContactSheet by default only processes mpg,mpeg,avi,wmv,mkv files. I will keep some such default restriction since without it VideoContactSheet could send MPC a file that MPC can't handle. The entire batch would then be interrupted and that could be a problem for some users.

But I will consider expanding the list of default accepted files after doing some more testing.

I have now also added an extra .ini setting lets you override default to process all other file types. So if you want that then just do this: Download v080410 , goto settings, click save, open the created .ini file, set "xallextensions = 1", save the .ini file, restart VideoContactSheet. All dropped files regardless of file type should then be passed to MPC for CS making. Check that the files work in MPC first.

When I have time I will also clean up and publish the .ahk source so that others can customize the program to suit their needs.

Excellent! Thanks.  Thmbsup
542  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / custom alias to search specific folder AND its subfolder files? on: April 08, 2008, 10:50:10 AM
I created this custom alias:
1000>>>photo>->photo $$1 | dosearch C:\-- photo\$$1>+>^photo (.*)

When typing "photo test" in FARR the only results I get are subfolders in C:\-- photo\ with "test" in the name, no file file matches. When I type "photo test jpg" do I get matching images from subfolders.

If I change the alias to
1000>>>photo>->photo $$1 | dosearch C:\-- photo\$$1 -\>+>^photo (.*)
then "photo test" gives only file matches, no folder matches.

But can I change the alias so that "photo test" returns BOTH matching images and matching folders?


(A related idea (I think this has been mentioned before but here goes anyway): it would be great if Pattern Scoring could be used to not only increase/decrease the score but also momentarily prioritize searching some specified folder in a way that overrides the Search Folders list. So for example, if a search pattern includes "photo" a custom pattern scoring entry could instruct FARR to then first search a specific folder, and only after that follow the regular Search Folders list.)
543  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA : Right-Click Menu gives an [ENTER] choice and when LEFT-Clicked [ENTER]s on: April 06, 2008, 02:40:30 PM
hrpufnstuf: right click menus varies from program to program. I doubt there's a way to force a custom context menu entry into each program. So Lanux solution is probably the best to be had. And if right+left click does not work in some program, try if right+middle click works (just change "LButton" to "MButton" in Lanux's script).

"When I highlight & paste URL's, instead of having to reach for the keyboard, I would like to just R-click & ENTER"

If you are using Firefox, check out the Drag De Go add-on. With that you can run any non-clickabe URL by dragging and dropping it, without having to press enter. See this post for more on Drag De Go and a similar add-on: http://www.donationcoder....=1685.msg106984#msg106984

There is already a ninjawords plugin for FARR: http://czb.dcmembers.com/ninjawords.html

More details on it here http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=12421.0 , more details on the definr plugin here http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=12350.0

I still prefer ninjawords slightly over definr but they are both really quick.
548  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Stand alone bookmarks toolbar on: March 26, 2008, 05:26:53 PM
This is a good idea app103!

It got me thinking... I'm looking for some way to have very quick access to a list of advanced searches on a whole set of bookmarks. Launchers like FARR can be used for that (that's what I'm using right now) but a specialized bookmark toolbar could be even faster for some purposes. So in addition to the regular folders on the toolbar (each folder acting as a dropdown menu for all bookmarks within it), there could also be some dropdown menus that list the results from advanced searches on a large set of bookmarks (Example: one dropdown meny lists the 20 most recent bookmarks with tag ____ in the name and with domain ___ in the URL).
549  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Alias sharing on: March 24, 2008, 06:51:20 PM
Here's an alias for jumping straight to some point in the registry in RegEdit. It requires the freeware Regjump from SysInternals/Microsoft ( http://www.microsoft.com/...iscellaneous/Regjump.mspx ).

1. Download Regjump and put regjump.exe in the Helpers folder in the FARR directory (example: C:\program files\FindAndRunRobot\Helpers\regjump.exe ).
2. import this alias into FARR:
1000>>>regjump>->Regjump - $$1 | Helpers/regjump.exe $$1>+>^regj(?:|u|um|ump) (.*)
3. type regjump _________
where ____ is some registry path. Example: regjump HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft

(I haven't learned how to make .alias files yet so the import code above will have to do, sorry)
(Mouser, is the Helper folder intended for extra programs like this? Or is some other location better?)
550  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful on: March 24, 2008, 07:13:59 AM
The Firefox 3 betas are just amazing so I'm getting even closer to ditching Maxthon for Firefox (old habits die hard...). In that process I've found some new add-ons. One such great find is Drag & DropZone Searching  http://www.captaincaveman...d-dropzone-searching.aspx
[attach=2]
[attach=1]

It is somewhat similar to  Drag de Go https://addons.mozilla.or.../en-US/firefox/addon/2918 (which does not work with FF3b5 yet). Both react to you dragging some text from a page and then dropping it. Drag de Go uses directional dropping; its reaction is based on what direction you drop the text in relative to the drag starting point. Drag & DropZone instead uses a grid of dropzones shown when dragging. An advantage with Drag & DropZone is that you won't have to memorize the various drag actions since you see them on screen.

Both add-ons are great for quick searching. I wish Drag & DropZone would expand the concept further though. I'd like to be able to use it's drop actions for more than searching, like copying to clipboard, saving to some file and in general passing the dropped text (and perhaps also page URL, title and so on) to external scripts.
