Finished Programs / SOLVED: URL Extractor
« on: August 26, 2011, 05:46 AM »
Most URL extractors I have found will take an HTML page and extract all URLs, but this is not what I am trying to do.
I am not looking for a downloader program, the URL are for later processing.

Scenario On Youtube, you are presented with thumbnails of other videos, each linking to their page.

What I want to be able to do is drag an image from Youtube onto "Program-X" and extract the URL
I want to be able to repeat this action so as to build a list of URL's for later processing, with each entry on a new line.
The list should be saveable in .txt format
Another optional would be the ability to copy all the URL for pasting elsewhere.

At present the steps are:-

Create .txt file
Open text file
Select thumbnail
Right click Thumbnail
Copy Shortcut
Select .txt file
Paste URL (either right click, paste or CTRL-V)
Enter (to move to next line for next entry)

The new idea should bring this down to
Save .txt file


My first guess is this may not even be possible

Scenario:- Quite often I will be multitasking. On one monitor I may be watching a movie, or listening to music, whilst on another I might be surfing this forum, the web, or trying out a new application. Some website still insit on playing sound when you open them, which interupts what I want to listen too, the same with some older applications.

What I would like to be able to do is Whitelist applications or websites where I would like to here sound, and all the rest not hear a peep. Obviously this facility would be easily toggleable on/off.

Put simply I want to only hear what I want, not what others think I should hear.

One issue i can see is that the window/app i want to hear sound from, will likely be the one without focus.

Finished Programs / DONE: Make folder with current date
« on: August 01, 2011, 09:56 AM »
I have searched the net, and found a few ways of doing this, but not they way I envisage.

In the right click menu under 'New', I am looking for an option like 'Folder (today)'

On selection it will create a New empty folder at the location selected, and with the name being

YYYYMMDD (Using the current date)

It might be useful to have configuration of date format for those that may have other uses.

If it already exists, a link would be much appreciated.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: File replacer
« on: July 24, 2011, 08:17 AM »
The idea came to me whilst using Switcheroo

Using a similar interface

First row is the 'Target'
Second row the 'Replacement'


Drag Target file to 'Target'
Drag Replacement file to 'Replacement'

On running the Replacement file is renamed to the target and then moved to replace the target (though the sequence may be slightly different to avoid conflicts)

Mouse only operation:-

Advantage two file drag-drop, and run. Total 3 actions (4 if confirm is an option)

Existing option
Use Switcheroo
Two drag-drop, switch, select Replacement, rightclick, delete, confirm. Total 7 actions

Using Windows (7)
Select target file, select filename, rightclick copy filename, select Replacement file, select filename, paste filename, select Replacement, rightclick, copy Replacement file,  select Target location, paste file, allow overwrite, select Replacement file, right click, delete, confirm  Total 16 actions

If there is already something out there...

Many thanks
