I think of a tool to select and copy/paste text from image files.

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: rapidshare.de download bot
« on: July 19, 2005, 03:31 PM »
http://rapidshare.de is ad-financed file-sharing service with somewhat confusing way to download shared files. Basically, many users has to do same repetitive and useless tasks.
When pointed to a download link, rapidshare user must select if he is a free or premium user, an from this:

<form action="http://rapidshare.de" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="uri" value=" [same download link here like only relative, i.e. w/o hostname] "><table border="4" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
Choose download-type</b></td><td align="center"><b>Free</b></td><td align="center"><b><font color="green" size="3"><b>PREMIUM</b></font></td></tr>

i guess it's absolutely useless (why not read a cookie  instead?). Nothing is advertised on that page so rapidshare and its users won't miss anything from some automation

further, free user has to wait for final (other than initial)  download link. (anybody interested should check this weird stuff manually)
Some community of rapidshare users use same password for all shared files (.rar's), and it would be nice to have  a minimal GUI gizmo to:
1. submit that "uri" value (initial URL in fact)
2. get final download link and download the file
3. execute " rar e -password downloaded_archive_name"

GUI will be extremely helpful for new users who are often confused with rapidshare
Options to enter URL and password (possibly - path to rar.exe) are desired

I didn't find any ToS at rapidshare. FAQ doesn't prohibit automated download, just restricts general download managers (FlashGet etc.) use to premium users

Thank you

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: Winamp audio FX randomizer plugin

Just thought it would be cool to have a plugin that turns on reverb or echo (etc.) at random, switch channels or modify audio balance.

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: mix CD ripper
« on: April 30, 2005, 02:52 PM »
There's a problem with ripping CDs with DJ mixes, broken in separate tracks. Common CD rippers (i know of) don't have option to rip all tracks to single file.  Of course, mix could be grabbed with stuff like Total Recorder, but it will be great to have one tool to play and rip CD mixes.

Unfinished Requests / IDEA: HTTP to FTP downloader
« on: April 30, 2005, 02:47 PM »
I mean something like FXP client, but intended for file transfer from web to FTP server (AFAIK it'll have to emulate FTP server requests). GUI not really matters =)
Thanks in advance!
