mp3 id3 tag whatsit

I bought a few mp3s from mp3sparks (formerly allofmp3) and was annoyed that the mp3s were not tagged with their track numbers but they were in the filename. I had a quick look to see if I could fix this somehow. I found id3-py which I used to write a python script that fixes this […]

Old School House Art Group is now live

Automatically generate a google sitemap for any given url – createSiteMap.py . Automatically generate rewrite rules for any given url – createRewriteRules.py . View a list of […]

Aggreg8.net sold

None of you will have noticed that Aggreg8.net and Aggreg8.com are now actually hosting Microcosm which is a Microsoft portal of some sorts. I was approached about a month ago to see if I would sell Aggreg8.com. Hell yes. I suggested $3000 as I could not be bothered getting into a to and fro debate […]

It’s been a while on the back burner but this weekend I went hell for leather and managed to get the necessary coding done to get Halfviking.com live. I manage all my photos 6000+ photos in Photoshop Elements and I am very happy with how it copes but it’s web gallery export sucks ass. What […]
