Thanks, Nod5.  I'll mark this thread as solved and move it.

Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Quick toggle some monitors
« on: June 17, 2020, 03:41 PM »
Got it working.   :up:
Problem solved.

The GUI was useful as the monitor #s were not what one would expect.
The SwitchOnOff commandline option worked imperfectly to toggle the monitors (one monitor was not toggling back on properly), so I used 2 hotkeys in AHK, one to turn the monitors off, and another to turn them back on.

Right on.  I'll move this thread.

Thanks skwire, looks like MuliMonitorTool will do exactly what I want  :up:
I will report.

Right on.  I'm sure you'll find out soon enough but, to work properly, the monitors would have to be DDC/CI capable.

This is actually pretty tricky programmatically.  I'd recommend using Nir Sofer's MultiMonitorTool program.  It's a GUI program, but fully commandline controllable.  You could easily create a toggle shortcut like this:

c:\path\to\MultiMonitorTool.exe /SwitchOffOn 2 3 4

Of course, run the tool first to get the proper monitor numbers.

Picked up a portable car jump starter

I have similar in each vehicle and used them successfully on mine and other motorist's vehicles.  The others motorists always amazed when I bust that out instead of jumper cables.   :Thmbsup:

What is a good program for editing .wav sound only files?

Audacity is usually mentioned for this purpose.

Here's an AutoHotkey solution for the first part:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. myDestFolder := "c:\tmp" ; Change this to suit.
  2.  
  3. myTuples := GetTuples( "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", 3 )
  4.  
  5. Loop, Parse, myTuples, `n, `r
  6. {
  7.     If ( A_LoopField )
  8.     {
  9.         FileCreateDir, % myDestFolder . "\" . A_LoopField
  10.     }
  11. }

Some notes:

  • You cannot create three letter folders or files with the following names: aux, con, nul, & prn
  • The DOS move command _does_ work for folders.

What's the use case for the second part?

Skwire, your Tags2Folders is about as close as they come.  Just need the additional token bitrate....

Added in v1.1.2.  See here: https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=19543.msg438418#msg438418

v1.1.2 - 2020-05-16
    + Added $bitrate token.  (Thanks, nkormanik)

Looking for a way to sort/organize mp3 files in a folder into a set of folders by bitrate:

320 kbps mp3s --> appropriate folder named "320"
192 kbps mp3s --> appropriate folder named "192"

What happens if the files are VBR (Variable Bit Rate)?  If you have VBR files, you will end up with a mess.

Even though I use Markdown, there are certain things that I prefer the AsciiDoc (or other markup formats) way of doing it.  You already mentioned one of them -- the use of underscores.  It's non-intuitive that Markdown formats _this_ as this.  WTH?  :huh:  I mean, they're underscores...they look like underlines, for goodness sake.   I would have preferred italics use forward slashes and be formatted so that /this/ turns into this.  However, some folks have trouble knowing which slash is a forward slash and which is a backward slash, so I can understand that there might have been some confusion because backslashes are used to escape characters.  Using backslashes, you can write: \_this\_ which would appear as: _this_.  As it stands now, to underline text in Markdown, you have to use <u></u> or <ins></ins> tags.  Ugly.
 
I agree that neither format is the be all, end all.   However, at some point, one needs to pick a format and just use it.  If one worries what they're missing from other formats, nothing gets done.   :P

Time to build a new shelf in preparation for NANY 2021!

Got plenty of shelves...

Thanks for this!  I've tried a few, but this one has syncing which the others haven't so perhaps this will be my endgame

You're welcome.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

a better way to manage my texts and research

I am a HUGE fan of Markdown and use Joplin extensively for this purpose.  Think "Markdown Evernote" and you have it.

Where is a mug from 2007?

As tomos said, the 2006 mug is actually the 2007 mug.  I wrote a funny little story about it.  Read mouser's post and then mine afterwards:

I'm down for any meeting, any time.   :up:

21
I'm in.  I use Zoom/GoToMeeting/WebEx/Jitsi every day for work.  What's another conference call?  Hahahaha.   :P

22
Is there any hope for a fix for sPlaylistmaker?  This has been a solid app for the past 4-5 years and I hope to have it listed in proper numerical sorting for the tracks.

This was trickier than I thought it would be, but give this interim build a test and let me know your results.

Is this forum still active?

Just wondering ......

Yes, it is.  I've just been busy with other things.  This app is REALLY old and uses a library that was not meant for anything later than Windows XP.  The fact that it works on anything later (Windows 7/8/10) is a bonus.  I really don't like messing with this app too much.  That said, let me see what I can do for you.



24
wanted to move all .mp3 files from folder A to folder B, keeping the entire folder structure where the .mp3 files reside.

A simply copy/cut and paste would not work here?  Am I missing something?

25
Seems all files are placed into single folder.  Original nested folders as well.  No mirrored folders appear to be created.

Is there a way to copy the original folder structure, too?

For File Punter to recreate the original folder structure, you would have to match parts of the source folder structure you wanted and re-use them to recreate the destination.  However, if you're just looking to copy/mirror over a folder structure and files, File Punter is NOT the app for you.  Use one of the myriad of file/folder synchronization apps out there.  If that's not what you need to do, please give me detailed information on what you need to accomplish.
