A liitle Util?

Post by harrym1byt » Sun 12 Oct 2008 2:41 pm

I wonder if anyone might be able to write a small utility to trim the data files back to sound data?

The problem I have is that as often as not - I forget to shut Cumulus down when I hibernate my system. The result is that when I turn my system back on, Cumulus doesn't know it has been turned off and fails to collect the data stored in the Fine Offset display. Cumulus then has a gap in it's data.

The manual way around it is to shut Cumulus down and edit Oct08.dat back to the previous days last data item, then edit the day time data in today.ini to reflect the last entry in Oct08.dat. Once done, Cumulus can then be restarted and it downloads its data correctly from display.
