More Pipes: Songbeat & Seeqpod

Those who read Lifehacker would recently have found an interesting article: a software named Songbeat that lets them download songs from Seeqpod for €10 per year.

Now this is just a rip off. Seeqpod provides a REST API through which anyone can see the search results for a given song.

So I set off, attempting to make a pipe which could allow music to be downloaded off Seeqpod without requiring any nonsense paid/adware software.

You can see the results here: Seeqpod Music Search

Happy Downloading! More info on the RSS spec can be gotten here.

In other news, if you have some folders you want to protect from anyone being able to access, use the following command to turn the folder into a hyperlink to control panel that no one will be able to open:
ren Movies Fonts.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

This will give it a Fonts icon and to anyone who looks at it, it will seem like a shortcut to Fonts in Control Panel. And when you want it back, use the following:
ren Fonts.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} Movies
