23/11: Alma new albumAlma is presenting his new album, "Get In The Van", and for the occasion, 250 copies are on sell now! Reserve your copy on almasound.com!
Reggae dub & Salsa, to listen very loud!
The config : ASUS P5K Motherboard + Intel Dual Core 2GHz / Windows XP Home Edition SP2 / Professionnal Soundcard Echo MIA then M-Audio Fast Track Pro USB
The problem : no way to get the soundcard work, the sound made crakles and finally lost itself...
The solution : everything comes from the integrated soundcard of the motherboard... So the only solution was to disable the onboard soundcard in the BIOS (look in Advanced > Onboard Periph Config) and totally re-install windows. Disabling the soundcard from the windows material manager was not enough, only a full reinstalll would work.
Well, hoping this can help!
So please visit Original Barbershop website and buy the album!
I developed it for a file sharing purpose, and it is now available for download on Sourceforge.net. The interface is Ajax based, thus providing very intuitive functionnalities, very close of a standard filesystem explorer you can find on any OS. The following actions can be performed on your server files :
=> Create new directory, create new file, upload new file
=> Rename, copy, move, delete, download a file
=> Online edit a file if it is a text file (txt, js, html, css, etc.)
It also provides a bookmarks system allowing the user to save folder locations and jump to them directly.
Just download the zip on SourceForge, unzip, change some configuration variables, upload it on your webserver and your done! Installations instructions can be found in the doc/ directory.

This application uses some of the WebFX widgets (XLoadTree, SortableTable and Selectable), as well as LightBox modified by Leightbox.
The XSPF Web Music Player
It's a highly configurable MP3 player that can read a track listing (written in XSPF, and XML format for sharing playlists) or a single mp3 url, and that is comparable to the DewPlayer (that I already mentionned in a previous article). Compared to Dewplayer, I really like the "single button" version, since it is much smaller and you can easily change the colors (background, button, etc...) or even the images used for the button through flash variables. So if you need something smaller than the dewplayer (particularly without the progress bar) and more configurable, it's an interesting choice. (I will update this article with an example as soon as the new website is online).
You can find this player here : http://musicplayer.sourceforge.net/
. The generated code is written so that Internet Explorer will auto-activate the flash movie : this very very useful, it avoids users to have to click a first time on any flash movie before being able to use them effectively (it uses microsoft API for autoactivating ActiveX modules).
. It can also be usefull to use a given part of your page (the DIV) being the "player" for various movies when you click on links. You will see this in the "videos" page of the website.
You can download this script and see how it works here : http://www.bobbyvandersluis.com/ufo/

28/12: Des news de l'Aquapad....Je suis toujours branché sur la programmation de l'Aquapad, l'ordi minimaliste à base d'écran tactile dont j'avais déjà parlé dans un précédent article... Très bientôt, je serai en mesure de balancer des photos et des screenshots de la nouvelle application mythique, "Automatic Pilot". Allié à un routeur midi assez complet, l'idée va être de commander tous les changements de son de tous mes claviers entre chaque chanson, en appuyant sur un seul bouton... Stay tuned, des infos très bientôt!
Et puis bon sinon, joyeux noël, bonne année tout ça, plein de bonheur quoi. Nous on se casse en Suisse et en Allemagne avec Alma, donc on se revoit l'année prochaine!
