New features in CS2 scripting:
It is a one liner to include files in your CS2 script.
//Global contants or variables can be defined in another file.
//This line should go before any code that will execute methods.
// @include "YourFileToInclude.jsx"
The self contained scriptlet is also a one liner.
// This enables double clicking on the Mac OS or on Windows
// This line of code should be first if you want your script
// to be a self contained scriptlet
The Scripting Events feature is not so much about coding but more about executing scripts when a given event happens within Photoshop CS2. Let’s say I always want a specific size of document, specific font selection, specific ruler units, and specific font color selected whenever I create a new document. I can write a script that will execute on CS2′s New Document Event. (That is another how to).]]>
BTW: I have only tested the new templates in safari, firefox, Mozilla, and camino on Mac OS X. I fully expect to be making CSS tweaks later.]]>
These same people would sit at home and burn mix CDs for all occasions and mail those CDs out to friends. This is essentially the making of playlists. The fact that Apple’s iTunes actually has a special playlist feature has made this process easier. Now these same people are able to continue this OCD behavior with much less effort.
As a society, we have recognized this new OCD and decided to give it a job description – “MP3 Playlist consultant”. Large companies hire these people to create playlists that will be played through their venue as mood music. It is a pretty odd thing to pay for since a lot of music genres can be streamed for free from services like Shoutcast. The streams can be captures as MP3 files and saved. Recording streaming radio is like recording analog radio – there is no law against it. Why pay someone $30 – $200 an hour for a service someone in the marketing dept can pull off? Anyway…. here is a link to the article that spawned my little rant.]]>
I wanted to have a common iTunes library between user accounts on the same machine to make life a little easier (my iLife that is). This feat is very easily accomplished by changing the iTunes Music folder location for all User Accounts to point at the same directory. The directory can be anywhere that a folder can be placed. I have a self-powered external Lacie firewire drive where all my machines music is stored.
Users now only have to update their own iTunes library when they know another User has added songs to the Master library.
Do the following:
Apple gives us the ability to share our music with Rendezvous but other User Accounts can view the music only if the other User Accounts are logged on at the same time. The users that are logged on also have to be running iTunes. The Music sharing Apple provides is also read only to the other accounts that you are allowing to share your music.
The solution above takes care of all these shortcomings.]]>
