New Changes to HypeMachine Extension

Minor improvements

Hasn’t been a while since I’ve written a blog post and this one will be pretty short. I’ve recently submitted a small push to my HypeMachine-Extension. The commit includes:

  • General code cleanlyness (so people can learn/understand better what it’s doing)
  • Added Google Analytics to see how many songs are being downloaded in general.
  • Added download attribute so that the song automatically downloads when you click the button!

I think the best reason to grab the latest changes is for the download on click fix, which also sets the name of the file download to the “title – artist.mp3”

Open Questions

Ideas for Metrics?

I’d love to hear ideas on some neat Google Analytics people would like to see tracked. I’ll be publishing the metrics I’m tracking now once I get enough data!

Google Chrome Store ?

Does anyone know enough of copyright law/trademark infringement to help me understand whether I can safely re-publish the extension to the Google Chrome Store?

      1. Thank you, I’ve recently been sercahing for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the source?|What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

  1. Hey Farid,

    I’ve been using your extension for a few years now and I realised how ungrateful I’ve been by never stoping by to say thank you at least.

    So, thank you! keep up the good work 🙂

      1. The basic question is Can the enestprire provide the goods / services at a price that produces an acceptable return on investment (ROI)? I don’t mean to be political in the following, just practical. And in that vein even though he can’t seem to articulate it, Romney knows bunches about job creation and ROI, as his involvement with Staples shows. What folks don’t realize is that as a Staples goes into operation, it does kill loads of small business suppliers who cannot adapt. But its efficiencies ripple through the economy as its lower prices allow its business customers to spend the savings on other needs. A Staples also reduces the cost of its offerings to consumers in general, giving them greater choice and the pleasure of new products that they would not have otherwise purchased. (Readers may substitute some company other than Staples in the example.) The vast majority of small business startups take federal policy, regulation, and taxation as a given because they have no influence over those facets. They have to focus on the costs of doing business within the constraints and policies of state and local jurisdictions in starting their operations, whether it’s a franchise or independent business. Even established businesses will move and expand outside of their home base if business conditions — ROI — deteriorate . While I don’t know the specifics of the Alabama program for the Airbus manufacturing facility, I suspect the state is following the model South Carolina developed to capture BMW (Bubba Makes Wheels) in the early 1990s. SC minimizes hiring risk — increasing the ROI potential — by paying for and conducting all BMW training. If a candidate does not meet the standards or does not make the cut during the probationary period, the state bears the costs. SC restructured its technical colleges to focus on job-specific training for BMW through augmenting permanent staff with consultants / adjuncts / part-timers of all sorts to provide whatever training might be required. BMW assists by providing unique fixtures or equipment such as special purpose or proprietary robots to be used in the training. Details (PDF). State policy has expanded the support technical colleges provide to include suppliers to BMW, Honda, and other suppliers to manufacturers.The jobs came indirectly from BMW’s innovation in design and performance, but directly from its goal to increase ROI. They ended up in SC because they figured the odds were good. Note that the approach that Alabama and SC have taken bodes ill for unions to the extent that another party — the state technical colleges — has assumed responsibility for worker training and certification. As long as workers regard wages as adequate — the average wage at BMW approaches $70K — the opportunity for unions to organize the workforce remains dim. That’s a feature, not a bug

      2. National Memory Screening DayFree, confidential meormy screenings for anyone concerned about meormy loss and early Alzheimer’s disease detection and intervention, sponsored by Visiting Angels in cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.WHEN:Tuesday November 13 2012Noon 4pmWHERE:Avalon Missionary Church. 1212 Lower Huntington Rd.

Visiting Angels is proud to be a partner in this important first step in finding out if someone has a meormy problem, and in helping patients and families become aware of the resources and assistance that is available.While a meormy screening is not a substitute for a consultation with a physician, it can help to determine whether additional testing is warranted. With as many as 5.1 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, and many more with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, early detection and intervention can be critical to making informed decisions for greater health and quality of life.For more information on meormy screening and resources to assist with ageing in place, cognitive impairment, mild dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, contact Visiting Angels at 260-482-CARE (2273).

  3. Since there is so many fields of stpicaleies that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.
