I was considering naming this post something more… inappropriate. However, I have good news.. and I won’t mention saving money on car insurance this time.. (oops! too late!)… Been updating some of the code in iDentify. The good news is, periods are now supported in iDentify… it uses a round-about way much like how it supports the colon. Just replace all periods in your file name (other than that which separates the file name from the extension) with a ^ (a carat). For example “Mr. Bean” becomes “Mr^ Bean” and “The Venture Bros.” becomes “The Venture Bros^”. It’s not pretty, but it works. I was going to use a single * since its visually easier to remember, that would interfere with only 4 shows in the tvdb, and imdb shows could have been overridden with the imdb record numbe.r however, one of the tvdb shows that would have conflicted would have been M*A*S*H… a series that is far too popular to have a conflict with. Currently, there are no records in the tvdb that contain a ^. therefore… no conflicts.

There are also a few other bugs I encountered recently that will be fixed, as well as a few potential bugs that I have made a preemptive strike against, including the disappearance of $s from descriptions. Example, currently, “$1 Million” will become ” Million”. This should be fixed in the next version.

    I should specify… period -will- be supported in the next version. Not the one release a couple days ago.
