  1. Cool. Thanks for the help people. These are all the step I took to get this working. 1. Extracting, moving, and adding the Mplayer folder location to my PATH variable. 2. Creating the batch script (mps.bat), and placing it the Mplayer folder. 3. Borrowing the code from HERE for shuffling text files using the default installed Windows Scripting, and placing it in the Mplayer folder. 4. Creating a shortcut to this batch file, choosing an icon for it, and placing it into my 'SendTo' (%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo) folder. And here are the batch file contents. set mp="c:\program files\mplayer" set pls="%random%" chcp 65001 pushd %~dp1 echo %~nx1 1>%pls%.m3u dir /b /a-d /o-s | findstr /e /v /i /c:"%~nx1" /c:".pls" /c:".m3u" 1>>%pls%.pls cscript //U //nologo %mp%\shuffle.js %pls%.pls type %pls%.pls 1>>%pls%.m3u chcp 437 mplayer -fs -playlist %pls%.m3u del %pls%.* I have this setup for file-names needing uni-code (ie - cyrillic, japanese, etc.). I didn't know how to launch batch files with the (cmd /u) setting, so I used the quick and dirty code page method. I also added the cscript '//U' setting to jscript file. If you don't require uni-code file-name support you can omit the double then merged playlist method. This script also works from the command line via "mps [TAB COMPLETION]".
  2. Hello. I'm attempting to create a Windows batch script that would mimic the functionality of the following Linux bash script I found through google. As I have no experience with building batch scripts, could someone convert this to something Windows compatible, or help me with the one I've started? <<Please no Cygwin, or other *nix style Windows environment suggestions as I dual boot. If it's a Windows command line app, I'm open to installing it for the desired results.>> #!/bin/bash pls=/tmp/$RANDOM.pls echo "$1" >$pls && find $(dirname "$1") -maxdepth 1 |grep -v "$1" |shuf >>$pls mplayer -playlist $pls rm $pls I downloaded the Windows 'Intel Nehalem' version of mplayer from here (http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php) . I extracted the folder into my program files directory, and added the directory to my system path. Although I've attempted to do it myself, this is the furthest I've gotten, and it has several major flaws. I:\ chcp 65001 set PLS=%RANDOM% echo %~1 >> %PLS%.pls dir /b /on | findstr /v /i "%~1" >> %PLS%.pls mplayer -playlist %PLS%.pls chcp 437 del *.pls pause The flaws being... - 1. I have to hardcode the location of the media files. In the above case 'I:'. I tried using the 'pushd' command, but it opens the location of my batch file, and not the location of the media file used to launch the script. - 2. I have no clue how to shuffle the order of the lines (ie - the file names) with any of the default Windows command line tools. - 3. Windows 'dir' command doesn't seem to have a way to omit directory names, so the script ends up trying to play files with those directory name. This prevents me from skipping backwards in the shuffle as it cannot find those file names - 4. I probably need to use the 'type' command to merge the echoed file name (used to launch script) dumped to playlist 1 followed by a playlist 2 with the '%1' file name omitted as on line 4, but I'm unsure how to do this with the variables. This is so I can have my playlist shuffled, but have the initially launched file play first.
  3. Well why didn't I think of that ... except it only has the serial, and part, numbers listed. I've never even heard of these terms prior to attempting to hook it up to the router. Anyone familiar with them care to comment on what they are? I won't be contacting the ISP unless absolutely necessary as they'll want to talk shop about my bill's payment plans.
  4. Hello. Does anyone know how one is supposed to find the APN, and PIN, for their modem devices? I need them to set up my 3G modem to work with my router settings.
