Quote Of The Week

Spliced together from Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2. Updated 23 May 2016.
*Note: You may see a page on Google Sites asking you to click on the link to download; this is normal and should not cause any problems.

These quotes are usually different from the quotes provided by TBC. Most of them have mp3 downloads, which are in the best quality possible**. This was inspired by Venusy but uses a different method of execution. I created a custom program in Visual Basic .NET 2003 using a Python script in conjunction with Inkscape which creates a Quote Of The Week from any text and any picture, with an optional "get it!" button, at the correct size, 99% correct font spacing, and with an opaque speech bubble not present in the actual file... all without using ANY Macromedia/Adobe Flash! I may release the program at a later date (the main issue being limited compatibility with newer versions of Windows and other operating systems a clumsy setup, especially on Windows).

**Quotes not originally in the mp3 format (eg, DVD or YouTube audio) use: either a constant bitrate of 320kbps or a high-quality variable bitrate; a 44.1Khz sampling rate; and in mono when there is no appreciable audio separation. Quotes already in the mp3 format (eg, embedded Flash audio) are simply trimmed without re-encoding.
