Re: Command line control

Thanks fizzjob. I ended up using Event Ghost to accomplish this and bypassing the widget. This worked but then I lost the Caller ID information that was displayed by the widget. I had another winamp plugin that also will pause MM but it wouldn't recognize the USB modem I was using. Do you think I ca...

Re: Windows 8 File Explorer Not Displaying Artwork

Glad to hear you got things back in order. Are going to use Classicshell again? I am still at Win7 but started to use Classicshell because of the annoyances with Explorer. Anyways, glad to help. Wish we could have gotten you squared around without the whole reinstall rigamarole.

Re: Windows 8 File Explorer Not Displaying Artwork

If you haven't gone ahead with the reinstall yet you might want to check out this first. Maybe this setting is not where it needs to be.

Re: Windows 8 File Explorer Not Displaying Artwork

You don't mention all that you tried so forgive me if you went down this road already. This sounds like a setting for the thumbnail view. Here is one thing I found regarding this in Win8. Maybe this will help. I noticed you are also using Classicshell as am I, only I am using Win7. I didn't see any ...

Command line control

I am using a an old Yahoo widget that will pause Winamp with an incoming phone call. This is accomplished by placing the statement "if ("0" != runCommand("\"C:\\Program Files\\Winamp\\CLAmp.exe\" /PID")) runCommand("\"C:\\Program Files\\Winamp\\CLAmp.exe\" /PAUSE ON");" in an input field for an eval...

Re: Media download quiery

All my friend's kids download "free" music and I am always having to go deal with all their computer problems. Free is a relative term. A good source for music is to hit up estate and garage sales for cheap used music.

Re: Database download to phone or iTouch

Another thing you could do is create a report that you open with a spreadsheet app on your phone or touch. If you have personal web space you can even make a web page with this information on it.

Re: Make MediaMonkey available for Raspberry Pi

You can put windows on a thumb drive. XP , possibly WIN8 . Without any other OS support I think this is your only option. Edit: Raspberry Pi FAQ What operating system (OS) does it use? We recommend Debian as our default distribution. It’s straightforward to replace the root partition on the SD card ...

Re: parallel port question

Thanks Peke. I have been pretty busy so it has taken a bit of time before I could get back to this. I had found your suggestions but it seemed a bit daunting to me as I am a hardware guy. Shortly after posting my question I took a different tack and found this - http://slicksolutions.eu/ledsdriver.s...

Given the expertise at this forum for computers I thought I would seek some advice. I am looking for a way to set a bit high on a parallel port once windows has loaded. I thought this might be accomplished with a batch file. I am just trying to get a visual indication that a headless computer is up ...

Re: Barcode reader?

You can scan the barcode right into the google search. That will probably give you the greatest chance of success with finding on line information that you can copy and paste. The barcode itself is just a number and you need the information attached to the number to be of any use to you. You can als...
