Missing Menu and Spare Parts Sections

Some visitors may have noticed a few changes to the site’s formatting. The main challenge with a site like this is trying to make it easy to find something, but too many links were making every page more cluttered than it needed to be. So I got rid a lot of the links that cluttered the left column; in fact, I got rid of the left column altogether. Most navigation can be done via the menu-like links in the header of each page.

I have tidied up the Missing Menu Commands page and added a Spare Parts page that lists a few helpful iTunes AppleScript routines and handlers for script-makers. I’ll continue to add to this page.

Finally, I dislike the way Amazon MP3s sometimes download with ” (Album Version)” at the end of their titles. Here’s a simple script, Remove (Album Version), that will delete that text from the selected tracks.

iTunes 8.1.1 Released

Apple released iTunes 8.1.1 which enabled HD movie rentals and supplies some VoiceOver and syncing fixes.

The shortcut bug introduced in version 8.1–whereby scripts assigned keyboard shortcuts would run twice–appears fixed. Hooray!
