    consecutive timed screenshots

    ok i tried this and when i played it i heard it snapping screenshots but then i could not find them. i even tried creating a folder on my desktop called "screenshots" and having them go in there using save to > new path but when it ended, nothing was in there. any ideas?

    consecutive timed screenshots

    anyone know of mac software or script to take consecutive timed screenshots over a long period of time (12 hours) and the ability to set the time interval between screenshots?
  3. this may have been posted here before, if it has, forgive me. Adam has mentioned that his macbook pro battery drains faster then it should when he puts it to sleep. I got the new macbook pro 15 inch and i was having the same issues. it drains a lot faster then my old macbook pro. 7 hours of sleep would drain a 100% battery down to 90% so i looked into it a bit and found a possible solution / workaround. there is a dashboard widget called Deep Sleep that puts your mac into hibernation mode aka "software suspend mode" (the regular sleep puts your mac into "hardware suspend mode" where some processes are still active) anyway it consumes no power while sleeping in this mode, however it does take longer to wake up (35-40 seconds) but still faster then a regular start up (50-60 seconds). anyway just thought i would share. oh and it does not work with all macs so check it out before u install
  4. is there a way to import (drag) a photo from my desktop directly into an existing event in iphoto? as it is now, i drag it into iphoto, and it becomes its own event, then i have to go into events view and drag that into the existing event that i want it in. its a pain in the ass-mouth. any tips appreciated.

    New Leopard Voice (Alex) 600MB!?

    this gives me an idea for a web company. people send me bits of text that they are too lazy to read. i hire a bunch of children from other countries to read the text and then email the read text back to them. the kids learn to read and speak english, the client saves a grip of hard drive space, and i make a ton of cash. its a win win win

    New Leopard Voice (Alex) 600MB!?

    thanks, i will try to move it. it just seems odd that its 600 times larger then all the other voices, it certainly does not sound 600 times better. guess thats why they only added one new voice.

    New Leopard Voice (Alex) 600MB!?

    i just ran disk inventory X and found something interesting. there seems to be a file that is a part of the new "Alex" voice in leopard that is over 600MB (PCMWave). it shows up as a plain text file. almost all the other voices are smaller then 1MB. has anyone else noticed this? know what it is? why its so big? could i move it to an external hard drive and move it back if i ever want to use that voice? im just trying to slim down my system a bit delete any big unnecessary stuff. here is a screen shot if you want to see it.

    Change/Set Album Art for My Movies ?

    Oh yes that works too. That method would be great for setting it to something like say.... in image of the DVD cover, or your own custom image.

    Change/Set Album Art for My Movies ?

    i found the answer to this so i thought i would just post it . play and then pause the movie on the image or scene you want for the album art for that movie, and then ctrl click on the image then a dialog will pop up and you can set it from there.
