Some music

     So school has kept me rather busy... That, and gaming. Anyway, I decided the other day that I was going to start backing up all my music CDs onto my computer because I realized that I can't find my "Strong Bad Sings" (Homestarrunner) Cd or my "No!" (They Might Be Giants) Cd, both of which I liked a lot. So I'm using Cdex which is a program I'd recommend, but I can't say that I've had very good luck with the latest version so I chose version 1.4 instead. In the other realm of things, I've realized it's quite dificult to name japanese files using english windows programs, making many mp3s ripped from anime soundtrack cds come with names like "Rasberry Heaven with ________?! _____" which makes it rather pointless to have names at all. I tried several application, but it seems without specific japanese language support, the program is incapable of writing the japanese names. So since I have it, here's something:

What music player are you using? I've run across the problem of naming files in other alphabets too, and I've found a makeshift solution using iTunes and OpenOffice.

OpenOffice natively supports other language fontsets. iTunes and OpenOffice (well, all Windows programs) support copy-paste. So, what I did was simply write out the track names and other relevant information in OpenOffice using the Insert Symbol thing (it might be called something slightly different) and then copy-pasted them into iTunes. It worked for me! (But I was using Hebrew, not Japanese, so it might be slightly different.)

Still no solution to making it understandable to who don't speak Japanese, though! :)

(PS: Tenor 2, hah!)

Or you can just use Exact Audio Copy. Does fine with portuguese characters (not sure how it does with Japanese......)

Neither support it.

Dunno if you still are doing this but I recommend using GRIP under Linux if you can somehow get it -- does great with any files I have ever ripped in any language (i.e., polish)

Good morning. I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man's.
I am from Qatar and too poorly know English, please tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Cassie injects and regards an early nick blending principle on a room."

Thank :D Krystal.
