your favorite little computer program hoonja-doonja (mac version)

"hoonja-doonja" = my mother's euphemism for thingamabob (i am getting her influence in here, river fleet, with or without her direct participation!!)

This here thread's just for macintosh so go start yer own, PC HEDZ.

My TOTALLY FAVORITE THING of the last five minutes is "Clutter"!! It's a program that lets you arrange all your mp3s as images on your screen, and you can just stack them up or throw them wherever you want, and you can click on them to play that album or song. iTunes is the equivalent of only being able to select rekkids or CDs by looking at their spines!!

Anyone remember BeHierachic? And recursive contextual menus? What's the best (ie, least resource eating) prog for OS X to replicate that? (ie, I use my Desktop as a work in progress folder; when finished, I need to navigate to loads of drives then drop the files there. I'd like to be able to right click the file and then navigate to the folder through menus and submenus and then re3lease the button and hey presto, the file goes.

Weatherpop is teh business! I think that wins, sHit, I know what the damn wind chill factor is in Hong Kong. Just in case!

Tracer Hand (tracerhand), Monday, 19 January 2004 23:54 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I bailed on Clutter because it doesn't "remember" album art for album names that start with numbers. When you like Supersilent, as I do, and you launch clutter only to find yourself staring at a number of those hideously ugly "CD-R" icons instead of your (minimal to the point of redundancy) Supersilent covers, it's a big pain to download them again only to have Clutter "forget" when you close it down.

how do you get weatherpop to work on places outside of the u.s. (like hong kong, or scotland say)?

thanks for that iTunes thing Dave B. Although, I have to say, it took about 4 hours to work since I have so much tuneage on my computer.

Konfabulator is cool and actually, pretty easy to program. As is AppleScript.

ShapeShifter is a lot like Kaleidoscope if that's your bag.

GarageBand is pretty awesome, as is iLIFE in general. FUCKING IDVD4 WON'T BURN FOR ME THOUGH.

Bit Torrent kicks ass. So does WeatherPop. MacMAME for-evah!

VLC plays .avi files very well, including divx.

Marine Aquarium is amazing.

Peak is a seriously good tool for music.

I tried to go over to Mail and lasted a few weeks until it started crashing all the time. I'm now back on Entourage.

VLC also plays .ogm files amazing well too.

i have 1passwd too and it is great, or at least it was until a recent version wanted me to sign up for some cloud thing that i totally didn't want but seemingly had to use in order to get it working on my work computer, but i managed to install an older version (6 i think) and now it works just fine w/my dropbox like it always did and yeah, no subscription. i got kinda shook by the weirdo cloud rigamarole thing though

i like dashlane - as you say, Karl, it seems about as easy as these things get to be... HOWEVER am examining my options now that the free has expired

what turns off is the "sync" which synchronizes your devices' password lists. so each device still has the same password list as when the "free 30 days" expired - but if you change/add a password on one device, you have to manually add/edit it on your other devices. it's a clever thing to force you to pay for - didn't seem like a big deal at the time, but i now recognize how annoying it is to go without it.

sean gramophone, Monday, 11 December 2017 02:26 (one year ago) Permalink

:-/ that's what i was afraid of! so basically, after 30 days, if you added/changed a password on your laptop and had dashlane generated a strong unique one like v#m.g)nm29]|, then then you'd have to either manually enter than in on your iphone or copy and paste it from your laptop to your phone (which seems less than completely secure)?

Karl Malone, Monday, 11 December 2017 03:45 (one year ago) Permalink

yes :(

sean gramophone, Monday, 11 December 2017 16:59 (one year ago) Permalink

good lord, how many typos can a post have? sorry about that, i was apparently typing in a hurricane!

thanks for confirming, sean! in my quest to never pay for anything, i think my plan is to update all of my passwords on mobile/laptop during this 30-day time of plenty, and then just deal with the occasional headache of adding or changing a new password afterward.

Cosign. Syncing through Dropbox. Like backblaze it's the paid version. I tend to frame the annual cost in terms of "how many pints of beer at the marble does this equate to?"
