  1. Hi ZigZagJoe, Love Saver2! I guess my last post got lost when something happened to the forums a few days ago... I'll re-post... I was wondering if you ever tried to get Saver2 to capture video from Amazon Prime Instant Video? (Or Netflix or Hulu for that matter) I'm checking out a one month free trial of Amazon Prime Instant Video. http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Video/b/ref=topnav_storetab_atv?ie=UTF8&node=16261631 I've found that I can even watch it on my Android phone. I'm guessing they are pushing the videos in just flash? I fired up Saver2 and started up a movie with Instant Video, but I didn't see the large video file downloading in the sniffer window. I could see a file that was about 6mb labeled something like trailer when the video started, but not the huge movie. Any thoughts about this or have you tried? :) Thanks! Smoke.007
  2. okiwan, are you twelve? Sorry you can't appreciate how cool this project could be. I work way too many hours, barely enough time to sleep. I think it would be sweet to have a wall mounted waterproof touchscreen monitor in my bathroom. Then I could get a little more entertainment in my day. Smoke.007
  3. Has anyone every built or purchased a waterproof flat panel touch screen monitor for their shower? :) I think this could be a fun project. I'm just not sure about what type of material I could use to cover and seal up the touch sensitive part of the monitor that would still allow it to be touch sensitive. I think it would be nice to catch some hak5 or other tv shows while in the shower. It's time I could be educated and entertained. haha I would plan to connect it back to a computer and would control via the touch screen, of course. I already have speakers in the bathroom, so that doesn't need to be included in the monitor housing. Any ideas or thoughts? I'd even be happy if any one pointed me to a product they'd recommend. I haven't searched too much yet as I thought I'd through this out there to the community. I'd though about putting my iPad or iPod Touch in there, but I'm afraid it wouldn't hold up to the moisture, plus I don't want to have to put it in an enclosure and then have to take it back out after each shower. Thanks, Smoke.007
  4. I'm using the Firefox portable setup. It works awesome! I like that idea way better than having to swap proxy settings back and forth in my main browser. Is there a way to change how it's names the songs it saves? Right now it names them Artist - Song. Any way to name it something like Track - Song or just Song? Big Thank You! Very good job! :) Smoke_007
  5. Very cool ZigZagJoe, I'll try it out as soon as I get a chance and report back! Thank you! Smoke_007
  6. I'm a big fan of Pandora, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a timeshifter for Grooveshark? I like how Grooveshark lets you play exactly the songs you're looking for and even build playlist with the exact songs you'd like as if you had the songs on your computer. This would be very handy if there was a "timeshifter" that worked with Grooveshark. :) Anyone? Thanks! Smoke_007
  7. Here's what I use in some of my batch files when I need to organize by date. %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4% This will give you mmddyyyy format. Use in your batch file where you want the date to be put. Examples echo %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4% md %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4% cd %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4% copy file.txt %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt ------------------------------------------------ For time you can use either one of these two. %time:~0,2%%time:~3,2% This gives you hhmm format. Example 1531 %time:~0,5% This gives you hh:mm format. Example 15:31 ------------------------------------------------ If you haven't figured it out already by looking at the command above; I'll explain. Lets look at dos command "echo %date%". The result in dos is "Sun 12/14/2008". We want to strip some of the data out to use in our batch. My example is "echo %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%" and the result is "12142008". Here's how it works. "%date" part calls the variable we want to use, ":~4" part tells it the character position to start reading after, ",2" tells it how many characters to read, and the final "%" closes the variable. So, you get the 12 part of the result. We continue reading the example... now less broke down. "%date:~7,2%" reads character positions 8 and 9 and gives us the "14". "%date:~10,4%" reads character positions 11 thru 14 and gives us the "2008". Have fun with this, it gives you a LOT of options and control as it will work with any variable to strip out just what you need. You can also rearrange the date. Example: %date:~7,2%%date:~4,2%%date:~10,4% would give you ddmmyyyy. Have a Great Day, Smoke_007
  8. I use MagicDisc for mounting disk images, it's freeware. http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-mag...sc-overview.htm DVD Decrypter is free and will rip and burn. http://www.mrbass.org/dvdrip/ The project's dead now though, but the program still works great. Hint, this software also works great with DVD Shrink. http://www.filehippo.com/download_dvdshrink/ "ImgBurn carries on from where DVD Decrypter left off"... Haven't used the program myself yet. http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/ Smoke_007
  9. I'm sure you guys have seen some of the high end KVMs that have a built-in web server (or some type of web/network access) so you can control your KVM over the network/internet. Well, I have a low end KVM that lacks that feature and I was hoping to find an open source project that used an old computer to give my KVM that feature. I've searched but haven't turned up anything yet. Does anyone know of any software/hardware setup that could give me control of my KVM over the network/internet? If not, does anyone think it would be possible to use an older computer with Linux installed and use a vnc connection to that box to control a KVM? I would guess the PS2 ports of the computer (usually inputs) would have be be used as outputs to the KVM. I don't even know if that's possible or if just using USB ports with an adapter would be better. Then, I guess you'd need a vga capture card to get video from the KVM. I happen to have this kind of spare hardware laying around. I'm just throwing the idea out there. I'm hoping someone has a open source solution. If not, I'd take recommendations of a product to buy to make this happen. BTW, I need remote access via hardware connection (like a KVM) because I do computer repair on a lot of computers in my office and I need to be able to connect at the hardware level as a software remote connection (remote desktop, vnc, etc) don't work when the computer isn't working right in the first place. Just thought I'd say that before someone asks why I don't just use vnc or something. ;) Thanks in advance for any feedback! Take care, Smoke_007
  10. Big Thank You to Konfoo! 8-) PandoraRip was the first timeshifting prog I tried using and it works great! Very easy as long as you install the Firefox Flash Switcher right at the beginning and set it to 8.0 r24. It's working great. Only odd thing I had happen was that it stopped ripping when it got to 100 total tracks ripped. But I just restarted the program and it worked fine again. I'm already up to 82 again, so I'll see if it stops again at 100. I didn't know if it was supposed to do that or not... haha PS. I've used this on both Win2k Server and WinXP Pro and both working great. I'll throw it on a Vista machine soon. Thanks for the easy to use, great program. Very cool! Thanks, Smoke_007
