iTunes script - cleanup, update id3 tags, location and rating

with the following script you can:

* remove dead files of your itunes database
* update id3 tags of alle files (uncomment currTrack.UpdateInfoFromFile();)
* update "comment" id3-tag write itunes rating and location info to the file:

source code part:
currTrack.Comment = currTrack.rating + "; " + currTrack.Location
"40; E:\STORE\AUDIO\artist\albumname\01-trackname.mp3"

== the benefit ==
even if you dont have audiofiles with id3 tags you now can search for foldername (albumname, artist, folder structure, ...) because the comment tag ist also indexed in search ;-)

whith this script its possible to export the itunes rating to the comment-id3-tag and you can use the rating info in other programs ;-)

== filter feature ==
* update only files with special substring: eg "mp2"

== rating codes ==
no star 0, one star 20, two stars 40, ... 5 stars 100

== source ==

on windows call with:
cscript.exe remove_and_update_comment_location.js

apple wireless keyboard on pc running vista x64

do you want to use your apple wireless keyboard on any pc?

i've successfully tested the special keys (includeing FN-KEY) on my vista ultimate x64.

you need:
blue-tooth stick
apple wireless keyboard
leopard 10.5.2 macosx dvd (including the bootcamp drivers)

first of all i made my wireless keyboard working with my pc. (blue tooth key, ...)

then i installed sharpkeys and changed some keyboard mappings for german keyboard (<> ^°, right-alt to delete,(screenshot))

insert bootcamp dvd and start AppleKeyboardInstaller64
ive noticed that keyboard now was correctly identified as apple keyboard HID-device

i thought creating a systemrestorepoint could be useful and then i installed the bootcamp64.msi.

reboot an the apple wirless keyboard was running fine with fn-key and media function ;-)

fine-tuneing: i setup to use F1-F12 keys (not the media keys)
to be the default function.

special thanks to following site which gave me the idea installing the bootcamp drivers ;-)
