I don't recall there being a problem seeing the files in a file manager even when I was using iTunes, but I may be wrong. The problem was that when transferring with iTunes the files were given crazy names and put in folders F01-F99 or something.
Now I remember: There are some hidden folders when you view the iPod in explorer. Make explorer display hidden files/folders and there should be a folder called iPod_control (IIRC) and within it a folder named Music and voila: The crazy F01-99 folders :) The files are in those. As I said, the files too have been given strange names, so what you need is a mp3tagger of some sort (I recommend the free Mp3tag (google it... sorry.) that can rename files from tags, cause the tags are still OK in the files.

Hope that helps, and sorry about any bad spelling or explanation, I'm a bit tired and my daughter is crying... GTG ;)

Yamipod oughta do it for you even if the music is transferred through iTunes. While the main Yamipod site is down, go here: http://www.snapfiles...com/get/yamipod.html

I don't recall there being a problem seeing the files in a file manager even when I was using iTunes, but I may be wrong. The problem was that when transferring with iTunes the files were given crazy names and put in folders F01-F99 or something. Rockbox solved it  :-*

But you should give Yamipod a try. It's free and the best iPod manager I've tried.

The iPod can be used as a regular USB drive, so you can copy the music to you hard drive through a file manager. The manual should tell you how to let the iPod be accessed as a USB drive.

a free iTunes alternative is Yamipod: www.yamipod.com (down at time of writing)

I also recommend the free Rockbox firmware for iPods and other portable players. Check it out at www.rockbox.org
One advantage with rockbox is that it's much easier to organize the music on the player, since everything can be stored in proper directories and not screwed up dirs like the regular firmware does.

Mine too! great find!

Still looking forward to ContextMenu Commander, but this certainly has made the context menu tidier!

Living Room / Re: Learn How to create No-CD Cracks.
« on: December 21, 2006, 03:53 PM »
I agree with cranioscopical.

Not making a judgement here, as I know how annoying it can be having to insert the CD when playing games. As far as I know making No-CD cracks even for personal use is illegal, and thus shouldn't be discussed here.

cool keys, nudone! I prefer the 01-version.

How about a purple one, though :P

TucknDar: I love the one you did. Definitelly a winner. Could you just reduce a bit the lighting in the man's arm? it makes it hard to understand that bit in the icon version.
Thanks! here's an updated version, as 256x256 icon, 16x16 icon and zipped version with several formats included in .ico


Icons created with Gimp and Microangelo Toolset 6.

Find And Run Robot / Re: New FARR v2 Icon Design Needed
« on: December 21, 2006, 02:26 AM »
Thanks, mouser!

I was thinking the same thing about user configurable icons.

If it weren't for the fact that 16x16 is so small, nudones key with the running man on it (instead of 'f') would be my suggestion. Probably'd be too hard to see though.

Speaking of key with the running man, I should get the painting kit out and paint the guy on my 'Pause' key...

edit: attached is zipped icon with several formats contained

I did another one.

I remember someone in the forum complaining that the FARR-icon looked too much like a bluetooth icon, so I changed colour to... purple. Maybe that'll stand out?

I like hamradios suggestion too, btw, but I really like that funny looking running guy :-[

Here's a little something I whipped up based on the current FARR icon and a modified 8ball icon found on the net.

Just for kicks ;)

... and to play with my new piece of software, the Microangelo Toolset, which I won in the DC December Software drawing :Thmbsup:

I spent about 30 minutes trying to generate a 3D blue ball with Cody inside it... But was defeated by a lack of ability!
Yeah, I hate when that happens, and it does happen too often :huh:

I'd love to play with it, but I'll just wait for a more stable release. Looking very much forward to it though :)

Yay, happy Microangelo Toolset owner over here :)

i'm going to contact fineprint people now and see if i can get them to give dc members a discount
Yes, please, mouser  :up:
Great review, got me interested in this tool. I do quite a bit of printing, so I bet this'd save me a few Nkr in ink costs ;)

I'm sure you can do this by adding aliases to the Win-registry... let me have a look at where they're supposed to be.

Late reply, but great interview!

Have to say I agree with Forster about sticking to one time management method instead of trying them all for short periods, which is why I've stayed away from the GOE, although I've started incorporating Forsters ideas into my life.

Thanks, urlwolf!

good find, interesting read.
I think I'll check out Sandboxie

1048
Wow, that's a stylish use of recursion in the screenshot, if I ever saw one!!  ;)

ProcessTamer / Re: Mouse lagging... but figured it out!
« on: October 12, 2006, 03:29 PM »
yes, it is a bit far fetched, I suppose. But I definitely don't have the problem now. I've tried deleting the rule, which still doesn't give me problems until I log off and on again. Then the problem is back.


The problem is gone, which is the most important thing to me, but I could try to dig a little deeper and see if I can find anything more out. not tonight, though ;)

ProcessTamer / Re: Mouse lagging... but figured it out!
« on: October 12, 2006, 03:12 PM »
so basically litestep.exe was using high cpu resources, and process tamer was taming it, which was having a negative effect on its performance.

[snip]

ps. this would be a good reason to turn on the balloon messages for when programs are being tamed, it would have given you a visual clue that the taming of litestep was the cause of the problem.
That's the strange part, cause Litestep doesn't use high CPU resources, and thus wasn't being tamed. I have balloon messages turned on, but didn't get any notification about litestep.exe. The log obviously says nothing about litestep, either.

I'm beginning to think that there's something else that's fishy, although Process Tamer and LiteStep are certainly involved... I've got no idea what else could do this, but the next step that might help would be to unload/load specific LS-modules  :-\

You may recall that I had a bit of a problem with LaunchBar Commander, docking and LiteStep? That was with an experimental LS-build with docking features (the latest official release doesn't support it.), but LBC didn't dock properly and didn't "release" the docked area even when minimized (or closed? I don't remember). Other dockable apps (Miranda, for instance) docked properly. I'm getting to the point...

... which is that I'm thinking that maybe some of your apps have problems with alternative shells in general or LiteStep specifically? I'm not jumping to conclusions, as this may just as well be something wrong with LS or with my system, but from my no-coder's point of view it could look like some of your code might rely on explorer being the shell OR Litestep NOT being the shell ;) ? Could any other alt-shell users please reply. What do you think?
