A script for the album whore

In the spirit of procrastination I decided to write an applescript that allows you to enable/disable multiple tracks in iTunes, since it seems to be natively lacking that functionality. Basically, the disabled tracks won’t get played in playlists/random selection — it’s useful if you’re an album whore and have tracks you never listen to just but you just needed to have the whole album. I began my quest but decided to check the internet first for existing scripts. Low and behold, Apple comes through (why this isn’t in the product is beyond me).

Now, don’t let that shifty purple logo and iTunes 2.0.3 thing deceive you, the Enable|Disable Script will work just fine with iTunes 4.1. You can’t get the scripts by themselves, so just download the whole package, unpack it and throw the Enable script into Library>iTunes>Scripts and then try running it on a track in iTunes. It’ll ask you to find Internet Explorer.app, just select Safari instead (i think all it needs it for, is if you’re not running iTunes 2.0.3 it’ll launch the webapp and bring you to the site to download it).

That concludes the procrastination session, I’m off to study some more computational geometry and approximation algorithms. Go team!
