Hi faggot,

Welcome to DonationCoder forum !!! :)

After being shocked at first, having read the first reply, I thought this must be some kind of joke I don't get. But reading the reply#3, I now think being shocked was the correct initial emotion. [#3 made me laugh!!! Thank you, Cpilot.]

I want to encourage you to not judge the forum on the base of the first reply you got, following your first ever post. Most people here are very friendly, and I hope user f0dder might care to explain the bad joke.

Welcome to DonationCoder forum !!! :Thmbsup:

Unfortunately, I can not give an answer to your question, as I don't know anything about music applications.


Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: a Self-Contained Archive
« on: November 17, 2007, 04:53 PM »
im looking for someone who can code this apps. or similar

"a Self Package (SFX) ~ .exe with explorer-like GUI"

* Drag n Drop files inside that box (there is only two way)
* updates(overwrites) the file when there's duplicate
* able to delete the file inside by pressing del key or rightclick delete
* independent, which mean, the extracting and compressing feature in built-in.. like a shell, a single file, self-contained, portable
* wish list: encryption function and password (or else, will just act like the default XP zip folders)

that would be great..

I quoted from the other thread, to have the info visible here as well as available.

How about a "cloning" option: New archive -> will pop up a dialogue for the name of a new, empty archive and create for example NewFancySelfContainer.exe, which will be some kind of build-in "distributor", as you don't want an installer for it. In case the "mother" has already been patched with a different icon, then maybe allow the default icon to be recreated, as that would ensure to have all "newborns" identical.

Sorry for my terminology.

Would you pay high attention to the efficacy of the build-in compressor, or is plain zip OK? I am wondering also about the use of temporary files on the target computer, in case you need to add or remove large multimedia files.
The problem with these is that a lot of them are "prepacked" and take a long time to re-pack.

Would you consider to have this app build as a container-only (compression level set to store only), with strong encription of the files within, or is that no good for your needs?


My interpretation: it will send all subsequent "GuiControl" commands to the now default window (97). Unfortunately there is no warning/error message if the control on the otherwise default window (maybe 1) does not exist. Alternatively the following code might suit your needs even better (I inserted "97:" as first parameter between the two consecutive commas):

;Loading GUI
 Gui,97: Add, Text, , CompuTech SnapSuite is loading...     ;Adds text "CompuTech SnapSuite is loading" to the window
 Gui,97: Add, Progress, vSnapSuiteLoadingProgress w300 h32     ;Adds (supposedly) the loadingbar, under the variable SnapSuiteLoadingProgress. The bar is 300 pixels wide by 32 tall.
 Gui,97: Show, Center, CompuTech SnapSuite is loading...     ;Shows the window, with the title "CompuTech SnapSuite is loading..." in the center of the screen.
 GuiControl,97:, SnapSuiteLoadingProgress, +50     ;Makes the progress bar add 50% [Wolf: direct to Gui number 97]
 Sleep 5000     ;Sleeps 5 seconds
 ExitApp     ;Exits the testing bar program...whatever you want to call it

Changes the current thread's default GUI window number, which is used whenever a window number is not specified for GuiControl, GuiControlGet, and the Gui command itself. In the following example, the default window number is changed to two: Gui 2:Default. See thread's default window for more information about the default window.
Creating Multiple GUI Windows
For windows other than the first, the window's number is used as a prefix for the special labels mentioned above; for example, 2GuiEscape and 2GuiClose would be the default labels for the second window. To use custom label names, see Gui +Label.

Each script may have up to 99 GUI windows simultaneously. To operate upon a window number other than the default, include a number followed by a colon in front of the sub-command as in these examples:

Gui, 2:Add, Text,, Text for about-box.
Gui, 2:ShowGui 2:Default can be used to avoid the need for the "2:" prefix above.

Performance might be slightly better for lower window numbers than higher ones.


Living Room / Poem of English Pronunciation
« on: November 16, 2007, 09:59 PM »
I have found several publications of this funny poem on the web: "The Chaos" by Gerard Nolst Trenité aka Charivarius (1870-1946)
  • I give this link: Pronunciation Help?, because it mentions the origin of the poem.
  • Here you can find the same poem with downloadable *.rm files (most likely sound). There is also a link for getting a compatible player on that site. I have not tested the player myself and can not comment on it.
  • English pronunciation same poem and more like it.
The Chaos

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.

Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it's written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.

Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.

Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation's OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.

Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,
Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,
And then singer, ginger, linger,
Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,
Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.

Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.

Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.

Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.
Doctrine, turpentine, marine.

Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.

Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.
Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.

Pronunciation -- think of Psyche!
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won't it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It's a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,
Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.

Finally, which rhymes with enough --
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?
Hiccough has the sound of cup.
My advice is to give up!!!

Who is up to the challenge to read it aloud?


I added the following line:

Gui,97: Default

like this:

;Loading GUI
 Gui,97: Add, Text, , CompuTech SnapSuite is loading...     ;Adds text "CompuTech SnapSuite is loading" to the window
 Gui,97: Add, Progress, vSnapSuiteLoadingProgress w300 h32     ;Adds (supposedly) the loadingbar, under the variable SnapSuiteLoadingProgress. The bar is 300 pixels wide by 32 tall.
 Gui,97: Show, Center, CompuTech SnapSuite is loading...     ;Shows the window, with the title "CompuTech SnapSuite is loading..." in the center of the screen.
 Gui,97: Default
 GuiControl,, SnapSuiteLoadingProgress, +50     ;Makes the progress bar add 50%
 Sleep 5000     ;Sleeps 5 seconds
 ExitApp     ;Exits the testing bar program...whatever you want to call it

Greetings and get well soon!
