I would like a program that toggles the mute on my CD Player input. At work my radio tuner runs through this input, and if I ever want to hear a WAV or similar playing I have to go to the Volume Control and manually mute it.

I have a flashy keyboard with a handful of keys which I can set up to open a given program. I'd like to link one of these to a .exe which opens, mutes/unmutes it and exits.

e: Windows XP

To explain it a bit better, I was wanting to catalogue all my DVD's.

I believe I have this filled based on your description.

Try http://www.tinyappz.com/wiki/ReadDrive

Let me know if you'd like changes or a real user interface. It could be done, but I was going for something light here.

Edit: Also, I only tested it on a few dozen files totaling roughly 80MB. It took about 30 seconds to catalog that, so I'm sure it's wasting time somewhere. If I get more time soon I'll try and clean it up.

More Edit: On that note, I'm pretty sure it's being caused at least partially by my file size retrieving method, which is pretty hacked together I think. Anybody got pointers on doing that better/faster?

Edit again: Nevermind, I'd an idiot. I've got it to where 7950 files takes about 2 minutes now.

A program that tests files to see if they are availiable to open and read. Ideally it would scan a directory and report a list of files that it couldn't read and the error encountered (permission/file error).

I've had a backup that randomly failed to restore some files a while back that can't be opened, and are incomplete. I'd like to be able to get a list of them and restore them from an older backup.

you can either choose a file, multiple files, or entire directories. It'll verify that each file can be opened and yell if it can't open it. If you're doing your entire hard drive, dont worry, the program didnt' crash, it's just going to take a while opening each file on your hard drive.

Also, you can click verbose mode and it'll return the attributes of each file!

It's in c# so it needs .net.

This is great, only it seems to need write permission to open the files. Is there any way to do it with just read? Or at least distinguish between no permission and read permission?

By default System.IO.File.Open() opens files in read/write mode so it would have been able to tell if it has write permission or not and report that. I rewrote it anyways to make it clear that is what the code is doing and to explain exactly why it cannot open the file for read/write either because it is locked by the OS or a lack of permissions or because the file disappeared.

I would very much like an app that shuts down the Vista sidebar when I load a game, and turns it back on when I exit. The sidebar really messes up game performance and it's a pain to have to turn it on and off all the time.

I want an application that runs on the console and on a keystroke, it returns what button was pressed.

For example you press F5 and it says F5.

I am really puzzled by why you want this. What in the world would you do with such a thing? Or did you just want to see the code?

Here is my request:

I would like something that would travese the source tree of a Visual Studio project and count how many lines of code there are. It would need to skip all the Visual Studio code that is automatically generated, so that it is an accurate representation of how many lines of code I have written. It needs to work in both VS 2003 and VS 2005 projects. It is a little easier in VS 2005 since you have all the GUI stuff in a separate source file, but I still have a lot of VS 2003 projects to profile as well.

Second request: (more complicated)

It would be interesting to know how many lines of code I write in a day. I write and delete a lot throughout the day, so this would be some kind of process that runs continuously and samples the source files looking for differences. For example, at the end of an hour, I may have added 20 lines of code to a program, but during that hour I added 100 lines.

How about a windows context menu for uploading files to a specified FTP host. Say I right click a folder and select FTP Upload > mysite.com it will upload the specified folder and all of the sub folders and files contained within. The ability to add mulitple FTP hosts would be a definite plus. Id also prefer for it to overwrite existing files by default. Thanks guys.

Just looking for some input for the site - 2 things I've been playing with are a form to add an application, rather than forcing users to play with wikicode, and a rating system for applications and requests.

I'd like an app that would...rename one file to be the same name as another. gently caress I dunno how that would work .

I just use subtitles a lot since im deaf and the dubbing codec only dubs subtitle files if they are the same name as the movie file (except extentions) it's just annoying having to copy the file name and paste it every time vv . Maybe a thing where I select two files with ctrl and either press a hotkey or right click menu and duplicate name vv .

Is there any way that I could get an application(is it even possible?) that automatically resizes the quick launch/other shortcut folders on the taskbar? For some reason, (using xp) it keeps getting resized and either a) not all of them fit or b) they stretch out too far, leaving little/no room for applications on the taskbar.

Not sure if this'll help, but once you get things layed out the way you like them you can right click on the taskbar and select "Lock the Taskbar". That should prevent anything from getting moved unintentionally.

A quick-and-dirty form would be excellent. Most of us (assuming) don't know wiki formatting. Not to mention it would shorten the time to formulate a request. I'm indifferent about a rating system.

Yeah, I do that, but I have one quick launch on the left for apps and one on the right for games. When I open multiple things with taskbar icons (Steam, xfire, itunes, gaim) it will hide portions of my games. It's nothing serious, just annoying.

This should be simple, I guess, but my knowledge of how VB/C coding interacts with Windows is limited.

I would like to see a program that (I'll use this on startup) grabs the current date from Windows, changes the year to a few years ahead, waits ten seconds or so, then changes it back and exits. It'd be nice if the program could pull some values (the delay time and the amount to add to the year) from a config file, but beggar's can't be choosers. Again, I don't know if this is hard or easy to do (if Windows (XP) has any restrictions on changing the system clock), but I'm just throwing that out there.

Well, I assume you want to do this to fool some app that's starting up into thinking it's the future. You could just do that with a batch file, eg

Example.bat
code:
echo on
SET today DATE/T
REM Set some arbitrary future date
DATE 10-10-10

REM do whatever you need to do - REPLACE THE NEXT LINE!
FutureBigPenis.exe -10 inches

REM There's no SLEEP for some stupid reason. this should work.
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 8 -w 1000 > nul
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 2 -w 1000 > nul

DATE %today%
and start the app you need to fool with that in that .bat

The easy ones get cherry picked pretty quick. I don't know, maybe I should make requests expire after a week or two so the list doesn't get filled up with near impossible projects. Or at least move them to a seperate "probably not so tiny" list.

I dunno. The most amount of "time" spent on one app would probably be my SystemStats app. That was mostly looking up how to do things though.

However, I'm kind of working on something that was tied to a request (printscreen auto upload). That's turning out to be a not-so-quick or tiny app.
