What are Coding Snacks?
Coding Snacks represent the best of DonationCoder.
On a special section of our forum, anyone can post an idea for a small custom utility/program.
Coders who hang out on our forum keep an eye out for interesting requests and when they see one that catches their interest, they code it and release it to the public for free.
People who find the tools useful are encouraged to donate directly to the coders to show their appreciation.

Selector 1.0 is ready for general use I think. The idea is a hotkey app in the Tray that holds a few of your favorite programs that can take the command line param from selected text or the clipboard. One example would be a browser. Instead of relying on a plugin to open the current page in another browser hit the address bar to select text and hit the Selector hotkey(Shift-NumPadDiv by default.) Choose your browser and hit the Go button.
Currently adding programs to the list requires using a FileOpen dialog to browse to the .exe file. A short name is automatically generated but can be edited.
At the moment there's no provision for sorting the list or rearranging the order of apps. A later version should have a few more bells and whistles.
The program uses Glass if enabled on the system.
It requires Scripting.Dictionary object on the PC.
If you don't have Scripting.Dictionary I believe installing
the .NET 2.0 or later run-time will put it on but check the
MS web site for the correct download. If you have .NET 2.0
or later you should have it already.

updated to v. 1.01 Double clicking an item in ListBox presses the Go Button to launch the item.
Items added to the ListBox are sorted(case insensitive sorting.)
A long time ago, someone saw a need for this tool (XP only)
I now see the need for a companion tool for Vista and Win7.
What do you think?
Here are the details on how this is done in Vista/Win7.
I'd like to see an option to sort out just one specific resolution, or a list of specified resolutions, so that I can run the program on my bulk image downloads folder and pull out all the images that are wallpaper sized, without worrying about having hundreds of extraneous folders created that then get in the way of other sorting (exactly 400 folders created this batch, amusingly).
Dimensions 2 Folders has been updated to v1.0.3: Webpage | Download
Tags 2 Folders is a small utility to sort audio files into folders based on their tags. The following audio file types are suppported:
AAC, APE, FLAC, MP1, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC, M4A, M4B, OGG, OFR, OFS, TTA, WMA, WV
Simply choose a source folder, a destination folder, set your options and click the "Go" button.
1) Recurse source folder: Scan through the source folder's sub-directories.
2) Show destination folder after run: Launch an Explorer window of the destination folder when done.
3) Template: Use the tokens to come up with your own folder naming scheme.
4) Copy files to destination: Make copies of the original files in the destination folder.
5) Move files to destination: Move the original files into the destination folder.
1) You can drag & drop folders onto the source and destination fields.
2) Filename collisions will be automatically renamed like this:
