    When not running a software firm (www.exploit-it.com), I enjoy my family (Sophie, Rebekah and Amelia) ... and I have been known to spin one or two CDs ... ;-)
  1. ... Or you could just paste the image captured to the clipboard straight into "Paint", (Start / All Programs / Accessories / Paint), which comes free with the Windoze ... From there you can save it in any of the common formats. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/offtopic.gif QUOTE (Andy Westcott @ Oct 5 2006, 12:33 PM) This BMP format results in pretty large file sizes so you should consider, if you have the software, converting it to .gif or .png format. Don't use .jpg as it is the incorrect format to deal with this type of graphic without affecting the image quality n
  2. Another couple to choose from are: - Echo Indigo DJ - a friend of mine uses this for his live performances and swears by it. It's also very compact and doesn't require any external power source - M-Audio Firewire Audiophile - one of my favourites with a latency of ~4ms - Allen & Heath Xone 3:D - a bit pricey, but they throw in a free Xone 92 mixer and a couple of MIDI controllers to boot! ... http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/tongue.gif

  5. Hi Paul and http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/Welcome.gif ... You've come to the right place!
  6. Here's a tip that has stood me in good stead for many years, "Don't do your own proof-reading." You'll simply keep reading the 'intent' of the text and not that actual 'content'. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/beer.gif
  7. Just to clarify then, does everyone take out their original CDs? I certainly don't, but I do take out a file with all of my receipts, which is left in the van.
  8. Thanks again for the suggestions ... Rather than peering at screenshots, I'll download the trial versions and have a play. I'm still considering writing my own (as I'm also looking to synchronise with my iPAQ that I can take with me) but Catraxx and the Collectorz offerings are a great starting place.
  9. Are you doing this from your home PC Ryan? (The one you're looking to relocate)

You may get mistaken for a Meter Reader http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/scared.gif Hehe ... http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/biggrin.gif ... Is the same purpose not served by a driving license (or a note from your mum if you can't drive)?

  12. Glad to hear that you're on the mend Andy ... http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/thumbup.gif QUOTE (Andy Westcott @ Sep 17 2006, 02:28 PM) Oh! And I've had a poo!! http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/biggrin.gif ... But *way* too much information ... http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/yucky.gif
  13. WiFi, as suggested by Chris, is definately convenient, but you do need to ensure that you have made the router secure. Failure to do so will at best be opening up your internet connection to everyone within range, or at worst, opening up your network & PCs. Another caveat is to try, whenever possible, to match the manufacturer of the router with the WiFi card. The joy of working in IT hammers home the number of implementations of 'standards' that aren't quite ... well ... standard! ... http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/wallbash.gif A final word on WiFi is that you'll ne
  14. Thanks for the suggestion haggis ... I've just had a quick look at their "Music Collector" program but couldn't see any way of getting my own tags in there (custom tags allowing me to catalog and search my tracks in a way that is meaningful to me). http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/biggrin.gif
  15. Good question Richard ... I'm looking to link an MP3 file with a physical location, but this needs to dynamic as I might re-sort the hard drive, as I do from time to time with my CD wallet. Therefore, the question I'm asking myself is should I use the MP3 tags to store my data in, or should I store the data and file location in a seperate database? I'm leaning towards the former, in that after re-sorting my hard drive, I could easilly re-catalogue everything by iterating through the folder structure in my application, reading in the data from the MP3 tags as I go.
