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!!

Is there a program that wil go through my library and automatically download cover art (ala Clutter, but actually within iTunes) for my CDs?

miloauckerman (miloauckerman), Monday, 19 January 2004 03:52 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I would (heart) Stickies but they crash my other programs boo hoo. My faves that aren't Ad0be/installed on purchase are Fetch and MacSolitaire.

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.

Quinn is my Tetris ripoff of choice.

WeatherPop - adds current weather info to menubar. I didn't see the point at first but now I'm creepily addicted to it.

Synergy - my favorite of the iTunes remote controllers.

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 (fifteen 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.

fields of salmon (fieldsofsalmon), Tuesday, 20 January 2004 00:35 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

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

Z Resource graph is strangely compelling not least because it graphs the weather.

I'm also a tremendous fan of Konfabulator which has plug-ins for just about everything.

my favourite, panther-only, is exposé which is a well nifty desktop managing tool.

cozen (Cozen), Tuesday, 20 January 2004 00:54 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

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.

don weiner, Tuesday, 20 January 2004 01:43 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

VLC also plays .ogm files amazing well too.

and Mail is still the best for IMAP email (I use IMAP for everything instead of POP)

Sound Edit 16 is AWESOME, and not entirely functional within OS X. Which is why I'm glad I still have a workstation running 8.6...

Douglas (Douglas), Tuesday, 20 January 2004 07:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I've had mixed success with SE16 running under classic, mostly involving changing a few permissions so it can put scratch files where it likes to. But it is great.

Salling Clicker, is the best little hooja donga ever. Remote control of computer, iTunes and other stuff over bluetooth from mobile phone.

oh yeah Ed, I forgot that one. SOOOOOOO awesome. I have my computer hooked up to my stereo now, and use my Palm Pilot to run music from any room in the house. It's killer. Plus, it's scriptable!

While we're griping, I really wish I could have my external HD eject as soon as Time Machine does its thing. For now it's plug into external monitor/hub, then hope I remember to eject the drive once backup is finished but before I unplug from the monitor.

will try the spaces-revealer (four fingers up) too, but that means i will have to make a habit of using extra desktop spaces. i started by setting one to have its own background picture!

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Friday, 16 November 2018 08:34 (three months ago) Permalink

i have the bottom right corner set up as show desktop. the corner hotspots are great because they work while you're dragging a file (unlike gestures). i use it a lot to drag files from browsers, etc. to the desktop without needing to hide windows.
