A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts.

maybe you should get Apple to follow the HIG for all of their apps first ;)

Info file creation would be bitchin'. Maybe .torrent file creation too?

exactly!  xACT without brushed metal looked like a JV program, while right now it's varsity all the way...hehe

just want to say big thanks to dave for testing this and finding many of my dumb mistakes/bugs

Hey, for all I know the FLAC/sox/md5 part of it is bug-infested...I just abused the shorten/shntool area. :P

Get that thing on version tracker. I saw it in action on John Kelly's laptop tonight and it looked pretty nice. Any way to add a % complete/remaning? It looked like the FLAC compression he did was just a sideways "barber pole" and wasn't counting anything.

if i rewrite in objective C, then it's a no brainer.  but the way applescript studio is set up, if i want to have that progress bar show correct percent (like macflac does) then it'll slow it down dramatically, because the language currently can't receive updates from the terminal apps.  it can only receive the final output.  in order to have it update the percent left, i have to direct the output from the flac binary to a file, and then read that file constantly to see the percent left.  it slows it down a lot.  to check this, compress something in MacFlac 2.1.2, then the same file in xACT.  xACT will be faster

so if you want to see progress of the current file, just look at the files in the finder and see how big they are....

how do i get something on version tracker?
