Incidentally, can some creative soul out there come up with a better name for an empeg lyrics scroller than... well, empeg lyrics scroller? My apps tend to be named "emptriv" or "empwake" which are not entirely creative, but a little more catchy than "empeg trivia game" or "empeg alarm clock." I can't seem to come up with anything for a lyrics viewer that doesn't sound dumb.

Yeah, I already ruled out any derivatives of the word "karaoke." The word alone conjures up images of sweaty fat guys singing "Piano Man" after more-than-one-too-many belts of scotch.

empoet... empoet.. empoet... hmm. My first reaction was "no" but when comparing it to "empaoke" or "empeg lyrics scroller", it doesn't sound half bad...

Hmm. empoet is officially in the lead.

Bitchin'. If nobody else stepped up I was gonna do it myself, but it'd definitely be towards the end of my priority list. PHP is also like my twelfth best language (it's even behind Tcl and awk) so you'll probably whip something up faster than I would have.

Hopefully you can provide known-good users like myself with a means other than form-based upload to contribute lyrics? FTP or something hopefully?

AWK? I haven't used that in a while. Some guy has been bored enough to write a webserver in AWK. I still prefer sokoban in sed tho...

Emphasis.

(Oh, and somewhere there has to be a utility that could be called Empath...)

Just to nip it in the bud:

Empedocles
emperor
empery
emphases
emphasis
emphasize
emphatic
emphysema
empire
empiric
emplacement
employ
emporium
empower
empress
emprise
emptor
empty
empyreal

I kinda like Empedocles for this. Inventor of rhetoric and all. But whatever.

Just to nip it in the bud:

You left out empyema!

Thanks, though. I revise my suggestion: Emphatic. Much better form, IMO.

I've never been too big on struggling to achive a literal name if something suggestive will do. I don't really get to vote, though. *I'm* not writing the software!

How about YAELV?? (yet another Empeg lyrics viewer)

emphatic it is! Wow. I can't believe I didn't think of just looking in a dictionary. Or asking Bitt, which is approximately the same thing.

You guys rule.

I know you're joking, but I always hated those "yet another" names. The first guy who ever called something "yet another ------" probably deserves some credit, but now it's a pretty tired schtick.

Besides, this isn't really "yet another" lyrics viewer. I consider this program the continuation of Patrick's version, and borrowed heavily from some of his ideas (though I'd like to think I've improved on it some.) But until it's released, all this is moot. I just wanted a better name, and emphatic has a pretty nice ring to it.

Incidentally Patrick mentioned he was going to give a WinAMP and/or XMMS plugin a try for aiding in the association of timestamps to untimed lyrics. That's probably a better arrangement, because I have more C experience, and he's probably got more GUI experience than I do.

Edit: Yes, I am, in fact going to bold-face emphatic every time I type it from now on. Look what you guys have done.

Quite a variety of words to choose from...

Given the voice quality of flite, maybe I'll rename TTSd to emphysema.

LOL......although it sounds more like Flite is suffering from throat cancer and had 'his' larynx removed, rather than emphysema.

If we did this, it'd be a very small archive with a very small audience. I think we'd stay well underneath the radar.

Small in terms of content or people able to access? The former might not be very useful.

The latter, silly. But initially, it would be both, until people contributed lyrics to some of their own tunes.

I will make a webste design and the layoiut if soemone can write a simple php script that connects to a database to help drive it.

I have a server and the ability to setup the database are you still up for building a front-end?
