Computers On Law & Order

First computer on the show

Hardware/software and related files for a project commissioned by Rhizome.org (thanks!) gathering images of computers and computer use on the American television series "Law & Order".

Why aren't the screenshots here?
Because there are 11,000 of them, and they're copyright NBC/Universal. If you'd like access to the archive for research purposes, please just email me.

Analyses And Ephemera
Notes, quotes, and some miscellaneous analyses of the show.

Automatic Screencapture
Software for capturing screengrabs from VLC. Works by pausing your movie, takes a screenshot, advances by N frames (taking screenshots along the way), and starts the movie again! This sketch uses the Java AWT 'robot' class, which allows you to create virtual keystrokes (automatic keyboard shortcuts in VLC).

Automatic Screencapture Button
Arduino code and hardware details for a touch-activated switch that triggers screencaptures in VLC. Includes information for building the switch.

Auto Post To Tumblr
Python code for automatically posting images and quotes to Tumblr.

Book
Files for the book, which includes an essay, some lists, and selected screenshots.

Extract Text From Script
Tests in subtitle extraction from DVDs for text parsing and analysis.

Misc And Process Files
Random Python scripts for fixing/updating, process screenshots, logos, etc.

Notes and Ideas
Thoughts, citations, and various notes.

Season And Episode List
List of episodes by season, episode number, episode name, and date aired.

Supercut Of All Screenshots
Process files for creating a supercut of ALL 11,000 screenshots - you'll have to be patient to see this one.

Tumblr Theme
Custom Tumblr theme for the project.
