This makes it so much easier for me to post my MT journal on my site. Before I had to log in to my site and blah,blah,blah. In addition, it grabs song info from Windows Media Player, which is something that I have been longing for (even though most of my music is on my Jukebox.)
Window Media Player Fun Pack-The Windows MediaÂ® Player 9 Series Creativity Fun Pack includes two exciting new sets of visualizations to enhance your music with fun, synchronized eye candy. In addition, a “blogging” plug-in can add information about your currently playing music to your Web journal. Read more about blogging and the plug-in below. To download, you can choose the full pack, with both the visualizations and the blogging plug-in, or choose just the visualizations or just the blogging plug-in.
The Blogging plug-in is the thing that I’ve been waiting for to use with the LJ and Blurty clients. Before, I had to input my song by hand into my entries. Now I have one-click service just like the people using WinAmp. Unfortunately the visualizations don’t seem to be working. Oh well, no biggie.
SongWriter-SongWriter, a free plug in for Windows Media Player 9 that let’s people visiting your website know what song you are listening to.
This is the program that I want to put on my site. At one point, I could get the album picture to show up, but I couldn’t get any of the text info to show. Well I still have 2 weeks of DSL to figure it out and to get it set up. This guy has it set up on his site and even has the code posted for it; couldn’t get it to work for some reason.
Mobydock-MobyDock is a freeware launchbar / taskbar program that allows you to control your applications and folders while displaying some cool mouse-over animations.
My biggest secret is that I am a big fan of how Mac OSX looks. I love the Aqua theme. Anyway, this is a taskbar that mimics the OSX toolbar. It’s a cool program, but still a bit buggy, and a major resource draainer. I actually think that I would use a Mac if there were more choices for it.
