Best Music Service / Re: tech crunch article comparing music services
« on: January 10, 2007, 05:10 PM »
Just wanted to drop back in to this topic and say I am still happily using AllTunes/AllOfMp3 with no digital rights restrictions and only $.10 - $.20 per song. Glad they are still around because any 'legitimate' offering under the music industry is still oh so unacceptable. Yes, I feel bad that artists don't get their fair cut (but do they really under the music industry either? - i think not), but at least I don't feel like I'm the one being ripped off and that matters to me, selfish or not.  I thought I remembered reading though that one of the main labels was gonna try to go DRM-free in '07 (was it Universal?), let's hope so, cuz it's not the price of the song that holds me back it's the lack of freedom and ability to choose what quality/format I want to buy.  Personally, I think the music industry doesn't want to let go of DRM, not to protect the songs as much as to have a way to always be able to recharge people for having to buy they same songs over and over, like they have always had (ie. new formats like vinyl-tape-cd-dvdaudio-sacd, or new packaging, new compilations, remastered versions, new super glamorous box sets, etc..). But, they can rely on people to get a new computer and lose their previous songs (or some other incident) and have to buy all over again, if they didn't have THAT how could they survive?  I mean they would, but it wouldn't be as profitable.  Once you get a lossless copy of a song in your hands for $1.00 you should be safe in never having to buy *THAT* version again.  I think the funniest part is, people like to buy music (own something), they would just buy more of it and be exposed to more artists.  Anywho, it's been a while, what is everyone else using this year to get music?

Please do add more informations! mouser?
last post date - poster / original post date - poster / # of posts / and if possible add a tag or category so they can be sorted

Pleeeze ;)

Especially since you can assign your own hotkey for minimizing and retrieving the program.  Recognition of Windows key would be nice too - I think that was mentioned somewhere before....

I'm speechless.

If you want some constructive critism then you need to focus on the target market.  You're trying to sell a calendar titled Girls of Engineering but you don't show them in a geeky, engineering environment.  Therefore you have nothing more than a standard, plain bikini calendar with a different title and the same type of girls in a non-themed layout.  If you do it again, really play up the geekiness of it and make the girls sexy in a very geeky / engineering environment.  Just my .02.

Good luck.

Ummm after having seen this pic below, I would have to whole-heartedly agree about sticking to the theme, my, my, my, wowaweee

what a knockout of a woman.

edit: site was not displaying picture.

all hail marek!!!  this is great news.  i havent even read your post yet  :-[ .  but just the fact that you have done something to keynote is awesome!  and to have posted here on DC, extra doubly whipped cream special.  Thanks and regardless of time of the year released, Happy Holday Season, Marek.  Thanks for thinking of DonationCoder!

edit: and yes, keynote is still in use here. (waiting on 2.0- haha, I will wait patiently till 2015 or so, seeing as no one else still really understands what needs to be done in a program of this type, just my opinion)

I would really like to see a screensaver program with high resolution holiday lights that blink and change colors and look really nice, I tried TwinkleBulbs but it was pretty cheesy as a screensaver and low quality graphics.  I've tried searching for something else, but to no avail.  Someone here must have something of the sort?  Would be really nice to get the Holiday spirit flowin. 

Living Room / Re: Hot! Awesome photograph by our folk Hamradio!
« on: November 20, 2006, 01:32 PM »
Ham, I don't suppose that was taken on some back roads between Greeneville and Johnson City?

I am not familiar with this feature, I don't even think it was a feature when i used CallStation over 3 years ago.

Hey! I think I've been there! That looks so familiar.  Nice picture Ham  :Thmbsup:

I've used call station in the past, when I actually still had a wall phone.  It is quite good, reliable and versatile enough.

Maybe a preference in board settings for each person, if they don't want to see big banners.  ;)  The smaller the better for me, more read space without having to scroll.  So reply #2 is my fav ;)

I downloaded this old magazine the other day, which was scanned into a .pdf file, but what I didn't understand, I went to search for something within the file and results actually came back.  How the heck is this done? I have tons of old magazines I want to be able to throw away someday (the sooner the better) - but I'd like to be able to keep all the information within them by scanning them to PDF files.  Do I have to buy Adobe Acrobat to do this or is other software used? Has anyone tried doing this with print material so it is completely searchable?  Thanks for any responses.   -vegas

Instinct would say the newer onboard sound is better.  But you could just install them both (without conflict hopefully) and see which one sounds better.

The one plug-in that is an absolute must with any winamp install.  WinCue (  It indexes all the music on your hard drive and makes a very fast as-you-type search results box.  It also has a party mode which it will randomly play songs from the results list, and there are many options you can set.  Once you try it you cannot live without it ;) The website is a little broken but version 1.40 is the last, and works flawlessly.  Cheers.

I just want to give more praise to this awesome little program.  I was speaking with Janne (author of Locate32) via email and asked if there was a way to donate,  Janne said no one has ever donated or made the effort.  This is unheard of as far as I'm concerned.  So, Janne added a donation link (paypal) to the Main page ( in the upper left corner.  I sent a little dough and encourage others to do the same if you find this program makes your life a little easier and have some spare change to throw around.  The fact that Locate32 continues to evolve and suggestions are actually considered is especially nice, given much of the software I've paid for doesnt do as well.  Thanks again.   -vegas
