Torrented Movie renaming tool   
09:35pm 12/03/2009
  When I download torrented movies I like to rename them so the folder and file names are all neat. I need all my movies in a sub folders because this is the way the "Media Browser" Media center plugin in the post below requires. The AVI file needs to be named the same as the folder as well. This can be rather tedious, so I wrote a PHP script to automate renaming downloaded movies. I then used a tool called "bamcompile" to compile the php script into an executable that can be dropped into any folder and ran.

The script will scan through all the folders in the loation the exe is places, it will rename the folder all nice, format the data in the title and delete anything after the date. It will then rename all the files inside the folder to match, along with deleting any nfo and txt files.

For example a folder named "Tropic.Thunder[2008]DvDrip-aXXo" would be renamed to "Tropic Thunder (2008)".

Most torrents you download the movie is already in a sub-folder, but if they are not, or if you have a ton of old movies all in one folder, you can use this simple DOS batch script my friend made for me to move each file into a sub-folder. movie_folder_tool

I also see someone recently made a batch file that does the same thing available here.

Extreme Adventure Skiing!   
11:28pm 30/01/2006
  I invented a new sport! EXteme adventure skiing!!

wel, like the lower shit part of blackcome, it was really cold so the snow was good all the way down. last run of day i didnt wanna just go down the normal boring way. at the top of solar I saw some tracks into the forest there, never been there. went in, was awsome. cept going deeper.. tracks ended. but i cept given're. oh and I was alone at this point, she went on the run

then it went to shit

there was a big creek i couldn't cross, so kept going down along it, then it got steeper.. and more dense.. then really steep and dense... then unpassable. So i had to cross the creek. i threw my pools and skiis over the creek, then had to jumnp across grabbing this branch/log to make it. then got my skiing ona gain, but it was so thick, and not really enough snow.. well there was just barely.

I eventual came out onto some road. i was pretty concerned i would end up going way out of the ski area and be lost and hafta hike. but now i know that you can keep going even farther! i wanna do it again, lol it was fun.

I think I’m never going to drink vodka again, i hate it so much now, tastes SOO bad. The smell of it makes me sick.

But I had an awesome weekend of drinking and relaxing. Went out Friday night drinking with Angela, played a drinking game watching anime, every time a certain thing happened in the anime we all had to drink, hehe
We then went and saw kill bill and drink more, Angela seems to loose the ability to walk when drunk, lol ;) *MUAH*-Angela

Saturday evening we went ice skating and then clubbing at the Sonar, there was a really great band called Ozomatli playing. Sunday evening we went out to this neat English tavern restaurant then saw the movie Big Fish, which was excellent. Fun was had by all.

Well this weekend fuckin kicked ass! Such an awesome weekend, everything went great and was fun. We did leave a bit late on Friday, but made pretty good time too Kelowna, was a decent drive, stopped in hope for some eatins. When we got to big white, we didn’t know where the condo was, and Roberto had turned off his cell 'cause he was a drunken FOOL! But we didn’t wait long until he called us and let us in. I even got a spot in the underground parking! The condo was really nice, neat layout, had 2 floors. We just chilled that night, watched some Conan. Next morning got up bright and early, got to the hill, rented skis for Angela, then hit the slopes! It was an awesome day! was at sometimes insanely foggy, but the snow and temperature was great. We spent most the day in the trees, the forests at Big White Rock! nice and open, sweet snow. And we were a pretty good group, we could all keep up with each other good. I was really impressed at how well Angela did, she ROCKS!!

After long day of skiing got back to the condo and hit the hot tub, ahhhhh so good. Had a fantastic dinner and a nice relaxing evening, did a bit of drinking, no too much though, there was skiing to be had the next day! That next morning was pretty rough getting up, body hurt all over, but we managed to get out on the hill for first lifts up. Spent most the day on the same lift, we saw no reason to move, it was dead there and had awesome long runs. I did a perfect jumping binding entree! but tried again and busted a piece off my binding :( but can glue back, not a big deal. Got back to the condo early, relaxed hot tub, ect ect. Then the long road home, so all in all one of the funest weekends in a long time, much fun was had. Sometimes you just have to GIVER! See pictures here

weekend update

So I had a most excellent weekend with Angela, Saturday night went out to a bar with her sorority, which was great. We were to walk her friend home, but she was fine Ang on the other hand had some difficulty walking, hehe. Then the stupid fire alarm went off, boo! Sunday slept in! ahh sleeping in is good, neva get too anymore! stupid 8:30am classes! GRRRRRR Then we went for a jog, I want to try and start running again, its hard to get motivated, specially in the morning.

Then went downtown and met molly and my brother, went to dinner with my mom, then my and my brother went to the hockey game, Ang and molly went to the movies. The game was pretty good, 3rd period was great and there was a big fight in the stands, very entertaining! After drove molly home to the boonies! otherwise known as white rock, hehe

Monday night went out for dinner with Angela's dad, i think that went ok, i hope it did, considering he didn’t find out about me until 3min before I met him. So things are going really good, I am very happy, things are going pretty good at school too all things considered. Our pirate game was approved and making some progress in it and I have a bunch of work for broken saints to do.

OMFG I think im gunna die this semester! I have my regular full course load, plus they gave us a free level editing class, because they fucked us last semester. and everyday i have school classes start at 8:30am!!! I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON!

I do have 3 days off this term, which is nice, but NONE are in a row, so i can never really go out, or go away, cuz the next day i will have an 8:30 class. One of those days off im working at Friesens in Abbotsford, cuz I need money. Another day probably Friday gunna try to go skiing at Whistler. Plus at school were starting a new game, so much work to be done, and im working a bit on another game, so more outside work than normal. Plus spending time with Angie which I really enjoy and want to spend as much time with her as I can. So its gunna be rough, going to be harsh burnt out, no time for personal projects or games :(

Me and Braden had a coke drinking contest and almost lost it all over the table, eheh whoops. I'm really excited about this Big White trip tons of ppl going!
