Subject: Not recognizing Java policy file
The problem seems to be that Windows does not save the policy file under its desired name, '.java.policy', but adds the extension '.txt'. Unfortunately, the Windows explorer hides extensions by default, which makes this problem hard to detect.

Solution: Open a command prompt ('Start'/'Run', enter 'cmd'),
go to the directory with the policy file, and use the 'Move' command for renaming the file.
move <old file name> <new file name>
move java.policy.txt .java.policy

Subject: Not recognizing Java policy file
I have saved the java command in the .java.policy file in my documents and settings. When I open the melodyhound site I get a message indicating the java applet's being loaded. But when I select Record/Analyze I get an error message saying I need to put the permission line in the file. I've already done that. I've tried exiting my browser and restarting it and the same error message recurs.

I don't know what else I can do. I started out by downloading the Sun file. Now it's beyond my technical abilities. Help!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
