Java Script Links

Ok, I need to know this, but I am sure it will help the members of the community also. Ok, the thing is, my life would be easier if I knew how to look at the coding or something to tell which answer is right on this thing. I was thinking I could somehow get the code and find which one is right by looking at it. Thank You.

Script I Wrote

This is a script i wrote for my graphic design class for a video project im doing. this is the first time me doing this. i didnt give the actors names because i wanted it to relate to people wathcing it and say "oh that sounds like me..." I was wantting to make something emotional that would motivate people to keep pushing on even when times are hard.( i will have pictures of story board up latter) hope u enjoy it :D By: Nick Melinich Female Actress *(voice spoken in her head, not out loud. More the actress talks, the more emotional she gets. By the end of her line, the actress will be sitting with her knees pressed into her chest, arms wrapped around her legs (like she is hugging for comfort), and lower part of her face buried in-between her knees, back facing the door, on the ground crying .Monolog show what the actress is experiencing, like getting bullied/ getting bad grades/ sleeping at the her desk/ and feeling alone.)* “I can’t… take this anymore… everyday just gets harder and harder… bad grades … no one to talk to…getting picked on……. Feeling alone… I can hardly sleep anymore, my new bed had become the desk im at, and my pillow is a cold hard text book… I feel like im losing control, my life is just slowly slipping through my fingers… when I attempted to stretch my hands to its full extent, deep into this dark abyss. Trying to grasp motivation/hope/happiness…no matter how much I try… I always to come out with a handful of disappointment… what’s the point anymore… in coming to school… im just set to fail anyways… no matter what…” Actor Enters the Room *shot will show the actress in the middle of the “year book” floor with her back towards the door, sitting (like in previous scene). Camera is eye leveled with her. Actress looks like she hit “rock bottom” with hair messed up on one side. Actor creeps in slowly to check on the actress. When the door clicks behind him the actress will be startled by it and jump and turn around to face the actor* ACTOR “Hey… are you all right?” Actress *turns and slowly walks away, arms folded* “just go way…” Actor “no, you seem like you need someone to talk to” Actress “(pauses, shallow breath in to chest) I can’t do this anymore…” *sobs* Actor “do what?” Actress “(quiet, monotone voice) school/ all this work/grades/ life/ just everything…(slowly raises voice) its all just to much, I question why I even come in at all, there’s nothing to look forward to, there is no one I can talk to, there is nothing for me… im alone… I give up!” *goes back onto the floor, full face into knees, crying.* Actor “You’re not alone… im here, there are teachers here that care… you have friends that care, your surrounded by people that care and are willing to help… if you give up now, you will be throwing away all of the years that you have spent learning…  you wont be able to do anything with your life… and that is when you will be truly alone… even though the hard, challenging times. You have to keep pushing through, even though there is no sign of hope.” Actress *slowly turns towards actor* “­your right…” Actor “don’t worry about it “ Actress *walks up and hugs him* “thank you so much” Actor *pulls away from hug, looks at her and smiles* “do you want some help with your work?” Actress *wipes her face dry of tears and smiles back* *Says in a sad tone, but more happily* “(pauses) yes I would.” Ending shot *actor helps actress out with her over bearing work, and cheers the actress up and gives her that motivation to work again*

Apple scripting question? Answered

I am new to Apple computers, I just got an older system off of ebay for testing purposes and so that I can learn how to use them.  (I want to go into IT for a living, so I will need to learn how to use them.) I need a little help getting started with my first project.  I have made a working program for what I want to do in Windows as a batch file (which I then compiled into an .exe).  For a company that I am starting, people often need to send me large files, and I want to give them a way to do this.  I have two FTP servers (one in the cloud, and one at home that my parents make me shut down every night).  Since these files are large enough that it takes awhile to download them from my cloud server, my script automatically selects which server to use based on the current time.  It then prompts the user to drag and drop their file into the dos window to select the files they wish to upload.  After that, it creates an FTP script which is then executed using the ftp /s command.  This program works great. I would like to get this program working on my mac as well (I realize that I probably can't use the same script, I will have to change it).  I considered using a bash script, but it seems that you would have to start the script from terminal (it can't just be executed by clicking on it like in windows).  I've also looked at automator, but as far as I can see it doesn't even have the ability to upload to FTP. At this point, I just want to make an easy way for people to upload to a specific FTP server without having to enter usernames, passwords, IP addresses/ urls, etc.  I don't even care if it automatically switches between servers like my other script... that is a bonus.  To any mac programmers out there, if you were going to do this; where would you start?  (Stick with bash, applescript, automator, another programming language, etc.) Thanks!

Arduino Script Issue?

Hey world, I am making device that will automatically water my xmas tree: I am using the basic "button" script from the Arduino IDE examples. the only change I have made so far is instead of using an actual push button I am sticking 2 bare copper wires(the ground has a 10k resistor) into a jar.  When water is added to the jar the connection is made and the LED goes on. The problem is that it only stays on for like 7 seconds. I need it so as long as there is water in the cup the light stays on. any ideas? Below is a copy of the script. Thanks! const int buttonPin = 2;     // the number of the pushbutton pin const int ledPin =  13;      // the number of the LED pin // variables will change: int buttonState = 0;         // variable for reading the pushbutton status void setup() {   // initialize the LED pin as an output:   pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);   // initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:   pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT); } void loop() {   // read the state of the pushbutton value:   buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);   // check if the pushbutton is pressed. If it is, the buttonState is HIGH:   if (buttonState == HIGH) {     // turn LED on:     digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);   } else {     // turn LED off:     digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);

Greasemonkey script "all comments"

I created a very basic greasemonkey script that adds a "all comments" link just below the normal "add comments" button.  When you click it the page will reload and all comments (up to 2000), not just 50 at a time, will be displayed.  Script simply appends "?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=2000&offset;=2000" to the end of the URL.  This should making searching through comments with "ctrl+F" much more useful.  Note that the page reload might take a while if there are a lot of comments. I am a copy paste coder, this works on my machine(xp with FF3.5) and my account, you however are on your own.  If your computer explodes and the internet breaks after you install this, I'm very sorry.  When you download this file you will get a .tmp file.  Rename it to whatever.user.js, the only important part is that it end in user.js.  Next, right click on whatever.user.js and choose open with firefox, you can then install it in the browser. Update--Works in Chrome.  Follow the same renaming steps as above, then simply drag it into an open chrome browser window.  Chrome will give you the generic warning, just click "continue" to install.

Need help with web script? Answered

I know a little about scripting web pages, but I'm mostly a hardware guy.  I need to figure out how to make certain text on a web page change based on where the client's location is.  (For instance, I need to say "serving (client town here) and the surrounding area since......." and I also need the phone number to change.  So far the best option I have come up with is creating a different web page for each town.  I know this script is possible, but I just don't know how to make it.  If anybody out there knows how to script this, I would help me a lot.  Thanks!

Program or script to change volume...? Answered

Another question that is way out of my league (woe is me).  I need (or rather want) a program, in either Java or VBs (if there's a better one like Python or something, that would be alright too) to change the volume of a Windows computer.  It would also be a good showcase of your skills to make it able to change the volume of a specific program or application.  The way I intend to use it is as if it were a function, rather than a program. So a different script will activate it (perhaps by writing it, which in Java I don't think is possible) and then set the volume and the program to change the volume of. If that can't be achieved, could it be made to read a text file (or something else) with two lines on it; the first the program, the second the volume. If the first line says something like none, It would change the volume of the whole computer. Hopefully I've given you a good enough description to make it clear exactly what to do. Thank you in advance.

Greasemonkey Script: Quick Contest Voting!

For those who are having trouble voting for contests because of the sheer number of entries, I've written this little guy to aid you in your sacred duty. First, you'll need to:Install ScriptThen, head on over to a [/contest/bookcontest/?show=ENTRIES&sort;=RATING page like this], and you'll see 40 entries with a separator half-way down. This shows the script is working. It will *not* work on any page other than page 1. To use it, start rating! After you've rated the first 20 and hit the "barrier", press the button and start rating the bottom set. By the time that you've finished those, the top set will have finished loading. (Don't forget to press the button again!) Overall, this will save hours* waiting for the page to load.So, what are you waiting for? Install ScriptNote: This script is pretty much in an "alpha" stage. Sorry if it leaks or causes terrible hurricanes to come and devour your toes mm... tasty. Also, I'm just throwing this forum post up to make the script public, I'll revise it with a bit more instruction once I'm not so tired. ;-)

Motion Detecting script CHDK help?

Hi guys, I recently installed CHDK on my Canon Ixus 125 HS/Powershot Elph 110 HS (the firmware is 1.01A) so I could have a fast shutter speed.  Upon on testing it out (I used the original script that they give you) I found that it takes an image after the motion has taken place, so I'd like to know how you can make it take an image as soon as it detects motion. Besides this, I don't understand the function of the two settings to change the script they give you. I would be grateful if someone could help me on how to use it. I'd like a way to do it without any programming on a computer or something, a way to do it on the camera itself please. Thx in advance super_me

Total Views Count -- 13/10/2011

This forum topic is a printout of the results of a Perl script I run weekly. To be included in it, join this group. The Perl script visits the profile page of each member of the group and extracts their Total Views then saves them to a file that can be opened by me in Excel. I then post the last 3 columns so everyone can compare their weekly gain with their friends. While you can easily see this data for you on the You page, this script allows people to compare their success/gain with their friends.

Script to open up pptx or .xlsx files? Answered

My hard drive is no longer working. I took it to a company to recover data from this disk. But most of the files have no original names. And besides, they don't open, probably as a result of damage. Is it possible to write a script to automatically try to open a file with the extension. pptx or .xlsx? Is it possible to make it so that the whole good files has been moved for example in the folder 'C:\Success'. The files that are corrupt in folder 'C:\Failed'. I'm not sure whether it is possible to do so? Maybe there is any guide how to restore them or utilities whether paid or free?

Who wants to test a new GM Script?

I've been working on this new Greasemonkey script that, IMO, is a lot better than the others.It allows you to rate comments. Your ratings aren't for your own benefit alone: they're stored on a server where they are mashed together with everyone else's to create a full-blown rating system!And, I'm using Google App Engine as a backend, so there won't be any server downtime!For this, you actually have to do a little sign-up procedure. Go here, & put in your username. You'll then have to post a comment*, and then you can get the script. This makes sure that one user can't cheat the system by having 100 accounts.From there, its pretty easy to use. Next to the username, 5 pseudo-boxes will appear. Use them as follows:[!] - This comment answered the question in the topic (use sparingly)[+] - Positive vote[-] - Negative vote[x] - Remove your vote[?] - HelpIf you run across any bugs, or have any suggestions, please let me know. I'll be glad to hear them!From there, if I do fix a bug, here's the best part: you usually don't have to update anything! It will automagically use the newer version. In the future, I may require you to manually update, but there is a notifier in place, and yet it is very unlikely that it will be needed.

How do I get a script to turn on a strobe light via USB

Hello, I am really at a loss how to do this so would appreciate any advice. I use Splunk and within it you can set for a script to run when an alert happens, so what I want to do is when an alert happens for a strobe light and a siren to sound. I haven't got a clue what kit is needed or the spec to do this? I suspect it will be some kind of a USB relay and obviously a strobe light and siren. Not sure how it should be wired up, I guess mains power (240v) to the strobe/siren positive and the negative connections to the USB relay? Then the scripting is there any free/sample scripts anywhere that can be used? Thanks for reading Guy

How do I get a Python script to work in Blender?

I am using Blender quite extensively right now, and I would like to be able to import and export md5 models. Unfortunately, Blender does not do this natively, so I had to find and download a Python script. That's when the trouble started. I am new to Python, so I have no idea where to properly place the scripts and how to run them. After some searching, I believe I located the correct folder: Blender/contents/MacOS/2.57/scripts Within this folder are 5 folders. They are as follows: -addons -modules -presets -startup -templates There is also a python folder in the 2.57 folder which contains a library for scripts, but I believe these are for python itself rather than Blender. The files I am trying to install are as follows: I tried opening each of these in terminal to attempt to 'install' them, but got this message: File "/Applications/blender-2.57-release-OSX_10.5_i386/", line 33, in import Blender ImportError: No module named Blender (I did not include some command lines because they contain my name and my computer's name.) What am I doing wrong? Where do I put these files? Is there something wrong with the filenames? Do I have to do anything fancy to get them to run in Blender? Any help is appreciated! I am running Blender 2.57 on Mac OSX v. 10.6.7

Small, Secret script or utility to force or track a "delivered"or "read" response for an email recipient.

Good day! I am SO fed up for bad service and people that clam they "have not received your email enquiry, instruction etc" i am looking for some pointers to write a script, utility using some common event handler that will run automatically when a remote user (recipient) receives, scroll past or preferably mark a message as unread and deliberately saying "no" to a request for a delivery or read receipt message to be send back to me (sender address). It is just dishonest and I hate it with all my being. I have a little basic programming  knowledge in C++ and can help myself in most things, maybe even VB. I just need some pointers how to go about, what and how to use a remote event on the target computer or even better track the mail from server to server and maybe give the most recent "status" to show as prove if someone pulls scumbag on me again. Please, please, please... Deon  :)

How to make a person appear to walk in Adobe Flash cs5?

I was wondering what would be the best way to make a stick figure appear to walk in flash? and it would move using key presses? If anything i figure id make a movie clip of said person walking and then use the key press code snippet and delete the up/down keys and then have it play the movie clip when its pressed and stop when its released? So would that work? if not what would be the best way to do this?
