Living Room / Re: "Price as Signal" - very interesting piece

re mp3search - yep, but Im not as keen on it as allofmp3. A month ago, the site went very wonky too, which didnt engender a lot of trust. Still, trying to find artists I come across (eg from pandora), it helps to be able to search several sites

Has anyone used AllofMP3 ?

Is it reasonable to pay by credit card (do they handle payments or are they outsourced to somewhere that feels a little safer to give away card details to?)

Yes, I've been using them/it for about 9 months.
Go to  for the company that handles credit card transactions. There is a paypal alternative, but from memory its unavailable more than available (just my experience)
In the last 9 months I havent had any bogus items on my credit card (famous last words?)

I would second that e-music is a good source of music, with the caveat that if you're looking for top 20 music, it's not so good. If you're into jazz ("proper" jazz, as opposed to so-called "smooth" jazz) then its good.
I think and allofmp3 operate under russian copyright laws which are rather different from usa/european ones.
(i read somewhere that pre-72 music is copyright free in russia - may or may not be true). Worth joining up so that if you're bored, you can soul search and ponder the morality of d/loading music from there.

hehe i see someone has learned to use button linking :)

by the way here is a tip:
when you link to other dialogs which should not ever be shown independently (but only in response to linked button press), then name those other dialogs with .cfi instead of .cfg, and only use .cfg for the main dialog.  that will keep the other secondary linked dialogs from being shown randomly.
oops ...sorry.
If I want to use other icons, you are happy to add to the main collection?

Agree so much! I went to have a look and sort of wished I hadn't. It's really weird to see pple attacking someone like Mouser, even after his patient and non threatening explanations. Its made me angry for the day :(

what a good idea!
I'm thinking of creating a set for my wife to remind her how lucky she is to have me :):)
How hard would it be to select messages on context ... for a few popular apps only.
eg, word is running, select a message about typing skills, ie/firefox/maxthon running, select message about websites.

Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: IE Proxy Switcher
« on: November 22, 2005, 03:53 PM »
proxy switcher at comes in a freeware version which does that.
It would be nice though to have ONE solution for changing the proxy AND at the same time changing the smtp server
so you could make a quick transition from home to work

Ive no idea how good/bad it is but I came across this freeware subtitler today:DivXLand Media Subtitler at

There's nothing that I could show you that you can't find by reading the manual which is here (  It's definitely written quite well, not to mention some of the mini-tutorials on the website itself, good stuff.
Thanks for the URL, will read that too.

Question to both of you (and whoever is reading this): How willing is the coder to add new features to TR?

Re swf ... no worries. Just returning a favour given me by someone else in this community.
Re new features ... sorry, I never asked. Ive received notification of new versions from v3.4 to 4.5 (standard edition) automatically (and for free) at which time I changed to the pro version. I've been pretty happy getting an email about every 6 months saying a new version was out.

Wolf7, you can turn off system sounds while recording using total recorder. From their help file:
"System sounds
To prevent system sounds from interrupting your recording, check "Turn off sounds assigned to system events". This is the default and the recommended setting. Your system sounds will return when you close Total Recorder."

A bit of a view of total recorder - sorry about the lack of annotations at this stage.
Its quick and dirty cos Im supposed to be working ....

thanks re flowers. Should have said my name is Tony btw.
Like your pics too Carol - as well as the coutryside you're camping in.
Can see turning into a defacto art gallery at this rate:)

This is fun, though I wouldn't say its a big time saver for publishing. I resampled the images in another program, then used a compression program to get suitable file sizes. That left the main point of jetphoto to take care of the online viewing experience.
So far Ive done an album of where I go camping and a flowers one, the former letting jetphoto do everything, the latter with me doing what I outlined above. Its at http://tony.dcmember...pserver/web/default/ for what its worth

I had no trouble (I thought) installing the server, but I couldn't get WebSync to connect to the server in test mode.
Tried Web Ready, their other recommended method and ftp'ed the files and it worked like a charm. So its a no hassle system (I didnt read any manual as usual).
I did feel a little out of control - eg adding folders to make an album, letting Jetphoto resize the images - kept wondering where stuff was being stored, was there any file optimization taking place etc. That's tomorrow's chore, to see where stuff has ended up on my h/d.

Living Room / Re: Flowchart and Diagramming Review
« on: November 10, 2005, 10:07 PM »
Ive just added a couple of free flowcharting apps in the sandbox, but I couldnt initially edit the freeware section - no "edit link" appeared (this on many occasions bar one).
That was using maxthon - in desperation I changed to opera and voila , now I have a regularly appearing edit link for the freeware section.
Question - "diagramming review" - does this imply you're covering mind mapping software (eg "inspiration") as well.
Suggestion for review: Some software allows for uploading/downloading diagrams to your pda (inspiration, plus some pda platform sw, in conjunction with visio(?) ) ... is that worth a mention in your reviews?

Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA?: PDF to DOC/HTML/RTF/TXT
« on: November 08, 2005, 04:36 PM »
pdf to html at   - freeware, command line
pdf to text at - freeware, converts to text only which may limit usefulness depending on pdf content
PDF Image extraction Wizard at - freeware. Not sure exactly what it does.

thanks Carol, will start following that up tomorrow. She who must be obeyed has pointed to the time :)


My photos are stored on the hd in directories named by date. I copied a dvd's worth of directories, then deleted from the hd. Then told imatch to update the file locations in its database.
Assuming all the thumbs are in the one imatch database directory (they better be!!!), its a total db files size of 36Mb. That's a lot, but I guess its the price needed to be paid for the immediate access to the thumbs.


Ive got a dvd filled with images, plus a few hundred meg of "pending" images on my hd. I can see thumbs of all my images (without dvd inserted), wherever they might be without loading any external media.
If I try to open an image by clicking on the thumb, if the image is on a dvd, Im prompted to insert the relevant dvd.
Hope this helps.
