BDog's Now Playing

What I added/changed;
1. Adds album.
2. Instead of displaying "unknown artist/track/album", doesn't display anything (stays clean, no extra spaces).
3. If no music is playing, it will display either "Paused: [track info]", "Music Stopped" or "iTunes Not Open".
4. No "Beamed 8th Notes". You can just add these next to the "%_bdog" trigger in your status message in whatever format you want.

Displays current iTunes info in the format "Track | Artist | Album". It will only take you a minute if you want to change the pipes to something else inside the script.

You can change the following properties:
no_itunes : "iTunes Not Open"
music_stopped : "Music Stopped"
music_paused_prefix : "Paused: "
separator : " | "

I did not integrate "alb" into "Truncate". Maybe someone else wants to? ;-)

Important: If you have problems, don't contact Adam or Doug! Leave a comment here for me.

BDog's Idle Time


1.2 Added "separator", "music_paused_prefix", "music_stopped" and "no_itunes" properties.
1.2 Replaced "No Music Playing" with "Paused: [track info]", "Music Stopped", and "iTunes Not Open".
1.2 Added "alb" to "initialization".

1.1 Added an "Only Playing" variation (per this comment). This version removes everything when there is no music playing. The trigger is "%_op-bdog".
