I TURNED 20 AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS STINKING CUSTOM TITLE

I took a whack at this:

http://www.tinyappz.com/wiki/TVRenamer

It looks like you won't be posting for a while, but here's hoping it's useful anyway. If you know any C#, you might be better off customizing it rather than using it straight-up. Episode names are manual.

Sorry about the late thanks, silly probation on my behalf.

Anyway, this works great, currently don't have the time to play around with it, but seriously good work.

I did think of one thing that'll probably cause problems, for example, if you only have the 2nd half of a season or only select files, then the numbers would have to start at a different point from 01. But I'll hopefully check out the code over the holidays when I have free time. Thanks again.

I've been doing some research on this one as well. As far as I can tell the only decent source for TV episode lists the doesn't involve scraping a website is the plain text data provided by IMDB. I'm going to look at your code and see if I can manage to automatically fill in the episode titles if that data set is available.

I'm not sure if it's because I don't have time to really play around with this, but I couldn't get this part to work for some reason.

Ok, I'll write a quick walkthrough here -
1. Download "TVRenamer2" from http://www.tinyappz.com/wiki/TVRenamer2
2. Go to http://www.imdb.com/interfaces#plain - there's a list of 3 FTP servers. Click on one.
3. Now you're somewhere like ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/tv+movies/imdb/ . Download movies.list.gz
4. Use Winrar or Winzip or 7-Zip to extract movies.list from movies.list.gz
5. Put movies.list in the same folder as TVRenamer.exe
6. Run TVRenamer.exe
7. Your processer will go nuts for a couple seconds while it parses the list. Don't do anything
8. Your processer calms down again, and now TVRenamer.exe is hogging a couple hundred MB of RAM.
9. Type the first word of your series in the Series box ei "Happy"
10. Click the drop-down arrow in the box. There should be a list of every TV series ever with the word "Happy" in the title.
11. Select the correct series from the list. ie "Happy Days" or "Little Clowns of Happy Town, The"
12. Put in the season number
13. Use the browse for files to select the files you want to rename (you can select several at once.)
14. Hit the "Autofill Episode Titles" button.

A tip for when you're missing episodes from a season - create a few empty text files and add those to the list in place of the missing episodes.

2. Save page in url as web archive. (IE its .mht)
3. Reply to first email and attach .mht
4. (Optional) Delete sent email and .mht.

I have some friends in some remote areas of the world and only have email access. I thought this would be pretty cool for them.

I've made a java application that takes a folder name, including the roots. You can use the browse button to select a folder too. However, it wont work if you only type 'c:', you have to type 'c:\'.
Also, it can take an infinite number of suffixes to search for, just use a space to separate them. You can set the limit too, the minimum number of files in the folder in order for that folder to be added. I didn't implement the requested drag-to-explorer feature, but on windows platforms you are able to double-click the foldername in the tree to open that folder using your standard folder-opener (explorer most likely I guess).

There are bugs.

Oh, and I haven't edited the wiki. I've never used a wiki so I'm not really sure how to do it, and I don't have the time right now to learn.

I'd like a PHP script that allows me to upload files to my web server without having to log in. I've looked around for something like this but I can't find anything that isn't feature packed with things I don't need.

Preferably the page would just look like this:

Password:
[_________]

File:
[_______________________][ Browse... ]

[ Upload ]

And this would upload the file to a directory that requires a password to access the index. I don't need to manage the files at all; I can do that via FTP when I get home.

I probably know enough about PHP to cobble this together myself but I don't know anything about web security so I'm worried I'll leave a huge security hole or something

Neurozys
Apr 15, 2004




I'm a little confused, why do you need the password field? I assume the password protection on your upload folder is provided by the webserver (ie, through a .htaccess file). A script running on your server doesn't need to log in, it can access the directory directly through the file system.

Or do you intend to have a password required for the script to work?

edit: http://php.about.com/od/advancedphp...file_upload.htm has some info for bare bones file uploading

I have a need to change positions of items on my TASKBAR. If i could click and drag a taskbar object, much similar to tabs in FireFox, and rearrange their position as i love it, instead of them being arranged by "birth" date, that would be peachy.

Possible?

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?

I would love to see a VU meter that was nice and simple, resizable, and looked appealing.

I've been doing a bit of work on this, but some details would be nice. You want it to monitor a single channel, or a stream, or a port(mic, line in, etc)? You want the characteristic VU meter delay of roughly 300ms, right? I can't very well just default the first available sound channel, would you like to be able to select one(could run more than one meter this way) or have it default to the first active stream it can find? I haven't started on the "visually appealing" part yet, so if you have an example of your usual screen layout I can try to design it to fit in.

It's a fun project so far, learning a lot since I don't work with audio at my job.

I'd like to apologize to anyone who was watching their download count - I screwed up the script while editing after the initial test and didn't catch that it was reseting the count to 1 on every download. Should work much better now.

Edit: Also, changes in the count may not show up on the app's page for 24 hours, thanks to MediaWiki's caching. I'll change that if I can figure out how to purge the refering page.

It's a fun project so far, learning a lot since I don't work with audio at my job.

I want it to monitor the output to the speakers, the way a traditional mixer would be. For example: this would include music playing in Winamp, a windows beep or sound, a flash game in Firefox, etc. All that would show up on the VU meter. This would be it's default setting, but being able to select a Mic or Line-In input for finer control would be nice too, getting a whole string of meters across the top of the screen would be

The 300ms is not really a delay, what it basically means is that it takes 300ms for the needle to go from -20 (or whatever the bottom is on your particular meter) to 0.

Basically I want 2 of these right next to each other for left/right channels and have them resizable to that they aren't taking massive amounts of space on the desktop.


I know it sounds kind of like a big project but it would be awesome.

The problem with having the password and file fields as part of the same form is that the server will only check the password once the file's been uploaded to a temp folder somewhere. Not a problem with small files but if you're uploading one that's anywhere over 500KB or so, you don't really want to be kept waiting only to be told you've put the wrong password in.

I just thought of something that would be pretty cool (to me at least) and is pretty tiny. Basically when you're burning a DVD any blank space is wasted (ignoring multisession). My idea is to make a right click menu where you can select a bunch of files and create PAR2 parity data files. The amount to create would just be the size of a blank DVD-5/9 minus the amount of data in the files you have selected.

Example: I have 4GB of files in a folder, I right click on them, say "Fill DVD-5 with Parity". Program creates ~350MB of .par2 files in the same folder. So you put them on the DVD with the usual data and you get extra defence against scratches etc.

If this is a stupid idea just say so. It just seemed to me. Doesn't have to be done through right-click either that just seemed simplest.

*~I'm Back Boyz~*

If you can read this your style sheet is a PoS.


Ok this is a REALLY simple program that would help me out greatly, I just do'nt know how to handle the number of simultaneous connections......

I need a program that will telnet to a list of IP's preferrably simultaneously (no more than 30 or so if that matters). It will then login with the same login/password at every node. It can be something as easy as Login wait 3 seconds, password, wait 3 seconds. Then it will execute 2 commands with about a 3 second delay between them. The commands are "flmDeleteDb" and then "reboot."

So basically the program does this to the list of defined IP's:

Telnet 10.10.10.10
connected....
Login
(1-2 second delay)
Password
(1-2 second delay)
flmDeleteDb
(1 sec delay)
Y
(1-2 second delay)
reboot
(disconnect)

The more customizable the better, but really the only thing necessary would be letting me define a list of IP's and connecting to all of them simultaneously or near simultaneously.

This is some sample output if it would help you all the nodes will be similiar to that.

I would like a right click context menu that will give the option to:

1. if I right click anywhere on the current page, send the current page url you are viewing to a specific Google Talk contact (It would only be one specific contact that this would need to be set up for, not the entire buddy list.)

2. if I right click on a link, send it to a specific Google Talk contact (It would only be one specific contact that this would need to be set up for, not the entire buddy list.)

We have 2 computers set up on a network here and currently are having to copy and paste to send links back and forth, so the above program would be great. It would need to work for both IE and Firefox. We just want an easy way to send links back and forth. Thus, using Google Talk is not necessary. If something else would work well and has a small memory footprint, then we are not opposed to using another method to send links back and forth. However, whatever program would need to have drag and drop images that show up in the message window, rather than using as a file transfer, as well as drag and drop links to the message window.

Thank you!
