Okay, so I am quite a few months behind in updating the kids' photoblog so family and friends can see.

Is there an "automated" batch script I could use that would add all the photos in a folder to their blog?
The two things I really need it to do are:
  • Make the post title the name of the photo
  • Make the post date the date the picture was taken
Is this possible or am I needing to do it manually?
Thanks very much.

Tried out and then saw it does some connection to the internet. Anyone recommend a freeware app that does the same/similar that does not need any sort of outgoing connection at all?
Thanks very much.

Post New Requests Here / Petrol prices around the world
« on: April 30, 2008, 11:28 AM »
I like to know how much petrol is in different countries as I have friends and family around the world. USA does uses $/US gallon. UK does £/litre and other countries do theirs. I think it would be great to be able to input the price per litre or gallon and have an app use the currency rates available online (e.g. Yahoo or whatever) and tell you how much per litre/gallon petrol is in each country chosen and then show you which country is cheapest. You could have the app show up to three (or more I guess) countries and in Settings the user can choose which countries to show and their respective price per unit.
Do you think this is possible? Any DC coding gurus able to help a non-techy coder?
Many thanks

Am using latest FireFox version and if I highlight a word, I can r-click on it and it'll Search Google for my highlighted word - very handy little feature!
On an iPhone, I saw a nice utility called WebSearch ( which allows you to add your own search sites for whatever word(s) you input. It then opens the browser to find it with that specific search (e.g. EBay, Wikipedia etc.)
Is there anything like this available as small coding "thing" for Windows users, whether FireFox or IE, when you start the browser? Or even better still, if I r-click on the highlighted word in a webpage, I can then get it to do the same thing WebSearch does?
Thanks for any help!

Hi DCers
Had a great idea :D for the guru programmers out there in DC Land as I am trying to get a digital frame ready with pics to send to dear old Mom and Dad as a gift:
It would be great if there was an utility that would search a user-selected folder (with the option to search sub-folders if desired) for certain types of files (e.g. JPGs), but it would need to find only pics that were Landscape orientation (or Portrait depending on the user-selected preference), because most people will either have their digital-frame in either Landscape (or Portrait) mode and wouldn't want the pics in the other orientation to show up as they would not fit the screen. Once the pics are found, it would then copy them to a user-selected folder.
Would anyone know how to code this and give us a working example?
This would save me many hours right now as I am going through all the hundreds of camera pics on PC to find ones that Mom and Dad have not seen/been sent of the kiddos, but I then have to choose which ones are the correct orientation for the frame.
If the digital-frame size (e.g. 5". 7" etc.) is relevant to the pixel size of the pics (e.g. 800x600), then the app could recommend (via an on-screen message) the best setting to resize the newly found pics. There are many apps out there that resize just fine so adding to it wouldn't be needed I guess.
What do you all think of this idea?
