created settings sub-folder
renamed fzdefaults.xml.example file from docs sub-folder to fzdefaults.xml
edit fzdefaults.xml so the string $SOMEDIR/filezilla/ from Config Location line now reads settings
moved fzdefaults.xml from docs up one level (same as filezilla.exe)
Getest met FileZilla_188.8.131.52_win64.zip op Windows 7 Enterprise.
Result: config files are saved in settings sub-folder, but the icons cache is still created in AppData.
If the “Kiosk mode” setting is set to 1, FileZilla will not write any
passwords to disk. If set to 2, FileZilla will not write to any
configuration file. The latter is useful if FileZilla gets executed from

If the “Disable update check” setting is set to 1, the capability to

Face it, your library location might change over time. When you’re using Winamp and don’t won’t to loose all valuable data like play count, last play date, … you probably searched around hours to find a solution on how to change the location to your media library (e.g. you swapped hard drives, bought a new pc, …). Rescanning your media folder is the easiest way to rebuild your media library, but you’ll loose play count, play dates and maybe more meta data.
I’ve searched the winamp forum for solutions, but the only result was people asking the same questions without getting the right answers. Depending on your Winamp version you might have tried some none working plugins too. The logical solution would be exporting your winamp media library to an iTunes XML format (and the export process will work!), but you’ll run into fatal errors when trying to import it. It all boils down to getting access to the core data file of your winamp media library (main.dat) and updating an outdated location to a hard drive or directory that has been moved.

Firefox 4 is available since a few hours. Looks a lot like Opera and is a major improvement over Firefox 3.x. Firefox sync feature might be a good replacement for Delicious. Still have to check out Google bookmarks though…
The standard distribution of Winamp already comes with basic functionalities for connecting iPod/iPhone devices. However, these features are really basic! Album art, smart playlists and ratings are not transferred.
The plugin ‘ml_ipod‘ enables such features (installation and configuration are self-explanatory). Compatibility should be checked with your device at the ml_ipod website, since Apple is not very happy with third party software.
It took me a long while to find a decent alternative for iTunes. First of all I wanted to get rid of Quicktime. It’s a player that really likes to hijack file associations. Still, I managed to live with that. Unfortunately the iTunes software keeps getting bigger with no benefit whatsoever. In my case I just need a mediaplayer (music player) for Windows that manages a music library and makes it easy to synchronize with my iPod Classic. I don’t need any other software stuffed down my throat containing drivers, connectors, features, ads,… for Apple hardware which I’m not planning to buy!
Mijn pogingen uit het verleden om iTunes eruit te gooien en te vervangen door iets anders zijn nog steeds niet gelukt. Het probleem blijft nog steeds om alle kostbare (!) meta-data in een ander programma te krijgen én de functionaliteit te behouden om te synchroniseren met een iPod.
iTunes en Quicktime zijn met de tijd niet mijn meest favoriete programma’s geworden. Vroeger kon je nog probleemloos Quicktime verwijderen na installatie van iTunes. Met de nieuwe iTunes 9 heb je al een flink installatiebestand van meer dan 80 MB aan je been. Continue reading “iTunes & Quicktime”
