Dear Abby

The following are a few letters sent to Abigail Van Burin (Dear Abby) that she herself admitted she was at a loss to answer:

Dear Abby, What can I do about all the sex, nudity, language and violence on my VCR?

Dear Abby, Our son writes that he is taking Judo. Why would a boy who was raised in a good Christian home turn against his own?

Dear Abby, I joined the Navy to see the world. I’ve seen it. Now, how do I get out?

Dear Abby, My forty-year-old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50 an hour every week for two-and-a-half years. He must be crazy.

GJay

GJay (Gtk+ DJ) generates playlists across a collection of music (ogg, mp3, wav) such that each song sounds good following the previous song. It is ideal for home users who want a non-random way to wander large collections or for DJs planning a set list. You can generate playlists from within the application, or run GJay as a standalone command-line utility.

Playlist matches are based on:

  • Song characteristics that don’t change
    • Frequency fingerprint
    • Beats per minute
    • Location in file system
  • Song attributes that you set
    • Rating
    • Color (whatever that means to you)

Currently, GJay only works under Linux. There are plans afoot to get it working on MacOS. GJay is released under the GPL.

Like it? Get it.
