For Sale: Babylon 5 DVDs
In the continuing effort to clear some space and pay some bills, I'm selling my collection of Babylon 5 DVDs. I have the boxed sets of series 1 through to 5, in great condition: they've been watched once and then put on the shelf, where they've stayed.
Each series retails at £57, I'm asking for £90 for the complete set (plus shipping, or we meet in Cambridge or London for the cost of a beer). If anyone is interested, please mail me.
Update: I've got a buyer!
Sound Juicer Love Hour
Does anyone fancy hacking for an hour on a neat little feature for Sound Juicer, as a way of learning the code base a little? This shouldn't take more than an hour or so, and would be good for the world.
When Musicbrainz can't find the track listing for a CD, it automatically queries FreeDB and will attempt to return something from the garbled nonsense that FreeDB generally contains. The user cannot tell the difference, unless they notice that the track listings are badly formatted, the album artist is incorrect, or the encoding is wrong. The user will not notice any trivial issues, fix any obvious problems and then rip the CD, or just give up now if the encoding is wrong.
This is bad.
What should happen is that Sound Juicer should subtly point out to the user if the data is proxied from FreeDB, so that they can import it into MusicBrainz where more data can be added and verified. What I'd like to see is a little pane appear if a CD is from FreeDB (SJ knows this already) with a link to the relevant import URL, so the user can quickly import it once for the benefit of everyone else who rips the album in the future.
Does anyone fancy hacking this? As I said, it sounds like an hour of coding for someone who can code GTK+ but hasn't touched SJ before.
