    If I was, would I admit it? But no, at any rate.

Question: Dou you have fresh new ideas for software? Because i am stuck and dying, can't think of anything. [permalink]

Reply on July 3 2015, 1:38pm:
    Occasionally, but they all tend to be services rather than pure software, and require a lot of busy work... so laziness and procrastination prevail! If you want ideas for a apache/PHP/mysql/etc web site, let me know...

Question: Will Reaper respond to action ID's sent ti it via API SendMessage? [permalink]

    Yeah, it should process them.

Question: That's very programmer thing to say, haha (GoT)...I presume you're talking about books, not series? [permalink]

    No, the show -- I don't really care to read the books, I vastly prefer science fiction to fantasy. Really enjoying Iain M. Banks' Culture series, which schwa recommended to me.

Question: Do you like Game of Thrones? [permalink]
Asked by WinapFan (69.181.0.x) on June 27 2015, 1:54am

    Yeah more or less, it could be about 35% shorter without much loss though.

Question: Sorry to permeate this. Basically what annoys me that when plugins open a file dialog, they never remember the folder they are supposed to look for in files, they always use the last opened folder (even if you opened it with a different plugin). So that makes for a lot of folder hopping. I was hoping that DAW can catch the plugin's fopen() call and point it [permalink]

    Yeah, it's more complicated than that, but the short answer is there's not a lot we can do to prevent the plug-in from doing this. At least, reliably. In theory we could hook various APIs, but it would really be difficult and probably cause certain plug-ins to fail.

Question: Yes, but that works only when using Reaper's preset browsing (the "+" button next to preset name). I'm talking about load/save operations triggered from within plugin's GUI - not Reaper's preset manager. :) [permalink]

Reply on June 26 2015, 10:01pm:
    Ahh. yeah I don't know of any way to do that, presumably the plugin(s) could...

Question: Is it possible to override and redirect plugin's call for file open dialog (loading FXP/FXB usually)? Currently Reaper only remembers the last such folder opened by a plugin, so when you use another plugin's file open dialog, you have to browse to another folder first... Annoying and slows workflow.

Reply on June 26 2015, 1:38pm:
    Hmm for FXP/FXB it should remember the path per-plugin, does it not for you? The relevant setting is in [fxpdir] of reaper-vstfxppath.ini.

Question: Do you ever throw some alcohol in your coffee and/or havebab nightcap? [permalink]

Question: Silicon Valley is funny as hell but nobody can reAlly be that nerdy. Don't you think they kinda overdid the stereotype if the needy coders who can't get laid? :) [permalink]

    Well, there are tons of things that are exaggerated in that series... That's the point, taking it to the absurd.

Question: Are you aware of the fact that what WT did for R5 theme is horribly inconsistent and simply not that good? Mark my words, Reaper's GUI will once again be a negative point in reviews. How can you not care? [permalink]
