Nine Years

Before I forget: February 15 is, apparently, the ninth anniversary of this site. As Regulars may know, the site began as a repository for AppleScripts written for SoundJam. (In fact, I still have SoundJam on my old iMac Rev B running OS 9 quite serviceably–if you think of that sort of thing as serviceable.) By February 15, 2001, Apple had released iTunes, but it wasn’t ’scriptable until iTunes 2—as it was called—was released November 3, 2001. For a while I was posting both SoundJam and iTunes scripts. At the time no one was aware that SJ was doomed.

Anyway, thanks for all the visits and good words over the years. It’s still a lot of fun.

Daypart Updated to v1.0.4

Daypart is a simple yet full-featured Mac application that allows you to schedule iTunes playlists when to play, giving you an easy way to program varied musical content throughout the week in your home or workplace.

Watch the video demonstration.

Updated in v1.0.4:

  • fixes “invalid date and time” errors under Snow Leopard
  • fixes an issue whereby Events starting several days in the future may not have queued correctly
  • fixes problem with windows becoming unresponsive when set to load and engage at startup
  • other minor fixes

Requires Mac OS 10.5 or better. The unregistered demo version of Daypart will save one Schedule with up to three Playlist Events but is otherwise unrestricted. The full version of Daypart costs $20USD. This update is free for registered users.

iTunes 9.0.3 is Released

Apple has released iTunes 9.0.3. Fixes:

  • iTunes no longer ignores your “Remember password for purchases” setting.
  • Addresses problems with syncing some Smart Playlists and Podcasts with iPod.
  • Resolves a problem recognizing when iPod is connected.
  • Addresses issues that affect stability and performance.

My download went faster from the download page than from Software Update.

Happily, AppleScript applications now appear as they should in the iTunes Script menu, which was a bug introduced in v9.0.2. Thanks!

Wait wait wait. Some apps appear and some apps don’t. Guess I’d better investigate further :P

UPDATE. Nope. AppleScript application bundles do not display.
