It has been a long time coming but I am finally updating the site template for my personal blog. I have put it off long enough. I did alot of work on the Main Index today and will be updating/tweaking all templates over the next month.
I also want to add LiveSearch – It is such a cool feature. If anyone has any feedback to give me? please do.
I can’t believe our society can actually fashion a new type of job out of the Napster era. The days of people being obsessed with downloading music that didn’t belong to them turned many people into Playlist junkies. I have known many friends that would suck up the bandwidth their employer paid for by downloading gigs and gigs of music. So much so, they would never have time to listen to it all.
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.
Plugin Name: Draft Control

The WordPress Plugin “Draft Control” allows users above level 5 to view drafts in a nice row paging system.
- Change the Owner of a draft for individual entrys without leaving Draft Control.
- Change the Category of a draft for individual entrys without leaving Draft Control.
- Delete individual Drafts from Draft Control
- Also multi-delete if you need that kind of power
- Save the draftcontrol.php file to your wp-content/plugins/directory
- Activate the plugin within WordPress in the Plugins section
- Go to the Manage section of WP and then select “Drafted Posts”.
- The controls are pretty much self explanatory.

Token Ventures and Bouvier Consulting have come together to form BeanTown AV. A group of audio and video experts with the goal of bringing Audio, Video, and Podcasting services to the masses.
I have put this sample together so other programmers don’t run into the pitfalls I have.
IE supports innerHTML for table cells and FireFox doesn’t.
You have to embed a div within the table cell and perform all innerHTML calls on that. IE and FireFox both support this method.
Sample code below:
/* This works for both IE and Firefox */
if(document.getElementById("currentItem").innerHTML != "1")
document.getElementById("currentItem").innerHTML = "1";
document.getElementById("currentItem").innerHTML = "2";
<table width =" 200" border="0">
FireFox or IE Gotcha:
FireFox does not support table tags when changing the value of a div using innerHTML()- when the div is within a table cell. Form tags along with most other tags are supported
*IE does support table tags when changing the value of a div using innerHTML() when the div is within a table cell.
I am not really sure who is right and who is wrong with the Gotcha…
I have seen several forum posts where users say SetRate() doesn’t work. What has worked for me is this:
function playFwd(anObj, rate)
anObj.Play(); //Have to call play first
<image src="images/fps_button.jpg" border="0">
When dealing with rtsp this will only cause the video to slow (The audio plays at full speed – bug reported to Apple). When using this code with a progressive download QT file it works great.
If you take your streaming file and run it through the http protocol everything works great!! But then you don’t get the features of the QTSS. Another topic…
The bottomline: Play() has to be called before using SetRate().
I am not really sure what is going on, but the front index for Bleacher Talk still doesn’t reflect sports Adsense Ads. The AS code is the same everywhere else I have it and the code works in other areas of the site.
Ideas on how to fix the problem would be helpful so please leave a comment…I am going to contact Google today.
I just did a Google search for itunes multiple users and I am PR #1 and the number two spot on the page. I guess I need to post more “How Tos”.
I haven’t really done a ton of writing on this blog. The content I am entering must be more useful then I thought. I am glad people are using it.
We have just launched a new website for sports enthusiasts. BleacherTalk.com is the up and coming resource for sports news, editorials, and sports trivia.
BleacherTalk.com is currently sponsoring Courtside with Hickman and Gilroy which airs on 1510 The Zone in Boston. Patrick Gilroy will be contributing the Courtside column every week.
I am very excited about the site and its up and coming potential.
I am #1 for both of these searches!! This is great because I wasn’t even trying. I guess I picked a good topic to write about.
