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...


I'm game for whenever.

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:

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

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.

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?

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.

the latest version of SigcheckGUI is more than 3 years old. In the meanwhile, Sysinternals also provide a 64bit version of sigcheck.
Will you provide a 64bit version of SigcheckGUI ? THX.

Is there a compelling reason for a 64-bit version of the GUI?

Or I could just leave it and folks will just have to trust me.

For the record, I gave up caring about false positives in my own software years ago.  If my own software body of work or reputation isn't enough to convince somebody to use my software, I'm perfectly fine with said person not using it.  IMO, it's not worth wasting the cycles on.

My work travel is done for the year so I really hope to have some time for this and a NANY in the next little while.

SkyHighatrist, I couldn't have said it better myself.  I'm extremely grateful for all of Jody's work on epCheck.  It has been invaluable to my television viewing but we can't expect him to fix what TVDB has broken.  :)

I want to fix epCheck, because it's an app that I enjoy using myself.  Right now, it's a matter of finding time to do it, and I hope to find time this holiday week.  =]

First of all, I'm glad you find (found? ;)) the app useful.  Secondly, apologies for the lack of replies lately.  My regular job has got me pretty covered up this year.  Third, based on what I've seen, this will not be an easy, nor a quick, fix.  So, right now, it's a matter of finding the time necessary to update epCheck.  I was hoping to have some time off of business travel in December, but it seems not as I travel each of the first three weeks.   :-\  What I really need are 40 hour days or to go without even less sleep than I typically get.   :P

Perhaps a FARR plugin would be the easiest way to do it?

FARR's ProcessKill Plugin here:

I use the last version (0.0.7) and it works well.
