It's true, it's a serious commitment, writing something like 52 blog posts/essays over the course of a year.

We could double-up writers cutting that in half, but then the team has to coordinate and I foresee issues of continuity, coordination, and slacking off, etc.

And I think there is some real value as a reader from the clarity of having the same recognizable voice posting on a regular basis on a topic, and the simplicity and comfort of everyone knowing who will be writing on a given day of the week.

Hmm, I have tried this several times, and the modifier keys don't seem to do anything. No matter what I do, the cursor keys only move one pixel at a time.
Yeah sorry I should have been clearer -- it's always one pixel at a time.  The modifiers just control whether you are moving the top left or bottom right corner or both.

Welcome, Daniel.

First let's start by saying that all of your requests are good ones.  Some you can do already easily, some are on my todo list.

Let's take them in order:

1. For region captures, I'd like to be able to use Shift+Arrow to nudge 10 pixels at a time in each direction.
You can use shift, alt, ctrl combined with cursor keys to tweak the selected-region capture box once you start selecting a region in selected region capture mode.  There is also an alternative "redbox" region selection mode that gives you a bit more options about resizing selected region capture though it takes a couple more clicks.

2. I'd like an option to have the "fixed size region" be the same size as my most recent region capture (in HyperSnap, this is called "pan last capture").
There is a hotkey for recapturing same exact region. And another hotkey for capturing a "Fixed size" region.  I am int he process of adding a feature to let you easily cycle through your "favorite" capture region sizes once you have triggered a region capture.

The toolbar buttons in the built-in editor don't seem to resize based on the global scale setting in Windows Display Settings > Change the size of text, apps, and other items (they are super tiny w/ a 4K monitor).
This has been requested a couple of times laterly. I tried a 4k monitor and hated it so it's not a problem I have.  But I did find a good solution to have larger toolbar icons and it should be in a new release very soon.

The Preferences dialog can get buried behind other windows and doesn't reappear if you attempt to reopen it from the tray menu.
That sounds like a bug, I will try to reproduce and fix.

Perfect.  Awesome!

Now we just have to figure out the best/easiest way to let you guys write your column blogs that will get them best exposure and fit in best.

Rgdot I think you would make a great weekly columnist and from reading your previous writing you are already well qualified.
What topic area appeals to you the most?  Within reason the specialization you choose is up to you -- it's mostly a matter of wanting to have different columnists with different specialties so that you columnists are easier for people to recognize.
And what day of the week would you like to claim?

So now that we've moved the entire content of the DonationCoder website to a proper CMS, and moved servers, and are finishing up the move of the dcmembers accounts, perhaps it's time to think about the idea of adding some more useful, regular content to the site.

I'd like to get back to coding and doing some overdue updates for my apps, but I was thinking it might be nice if we could revive the old idea of DC "columnists" who would each write a weekly blog/article about some are of the tech/computer scene.

Ideally I'd like us to come up with 7 areas, one for each day of the week, and find a columnist willing to commit to writing a long-post/short-article each week, posting on a specific day, on their subject.  To be featured prominently on the website.

Here are some specialty areas I was thinking about:
  • Security, Windows software, Open source software, Mobile apps, Technology, Kickstarter, Websites, Entertainment, Programming, Humor.
  •   Those are just some topic area ideas off the top of my head.

Requirements: Someone dependable who is willing to put in some time every week without exception, and not miss a week.  We could team up people for a given day if they want to split the load.  A real interest in the subject.  We need to find the right person for each area, and you really have to be willing to make a year-long commitment to writing something interesting every week, with some images, etc.   I'm looking for a year-long weekly commitment to the project.

Rewards: Official title, fame, love, and some small guaranteed funding.  [We will have to raise the money to pay for this.. I think what we'd do, if there is some interest in this idea, is have a fundraiser this year to pay for the year's hosting costs and some extra money to pay for this compensation.]  But if we can increase the following we can get donations directly to fund continuing columnists.

So the question is, can we find 7 people who are interested in embarking on this experiment/job?

Thanks, fixed.  Keep up the bug hunting and reporting!

Does it give you any clue about what it doesn't like?
If you view the email headers do you see anything that might give a clue?

If you go into the "File Naming" options tab you will see how it is deciding to name capture files.  You should be able to set it how you want.. SC will add a number if it needs to in order to make a filename unique or you can use some of the other options for numbering.

There is no option for it currently, but I was actually thinking of adding a new option that showed a small compact repositionable window on your screen, on top of other windows, with the last N recent clips, so you could both SEE recent clips at a glance and quickly select them for pasting.  I could add some options when I add that that would allow it to simply show a tray message of last clip instead.

Let me add an option so you can treat the Must Contain field as an "OR" instead of "AND", and I think that will solve your problem, yes?

The Andrews Sisters "video" I love best is Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy from an Abbot and Costello movie:

Here are the 3 places I used:

The image above is from the last one on the list, which unfortunately will only let you test 3 emails within 24hr period for free.

Should be fixed now.  Keep the reports coming :up:

The rewards of getting the SPF, DKIM, DMARC, all configured properly:

This will be my 3rd attendance of the Gencon board game convention.  This year it will be held from Aug 2-5 in Indiana.
If any else is planning on attending let me know and we can meet up and play some board games and I'll bring you a rare DC games division mug.

FYI: The search failures were my fault -- I was over-eager in cleaning out a database table that I thought was related to logs but was actually important for search.  Table replaced and updated, no harm done, no data lost.
I've tweaked the search results a little now, so maybe they will be a tiny bit more relevant than they have been on the old server.. but after everything else is sorted out I'll try to go through and improve search results.

And now server is rebooting to apply updates.. standby..

Ok searching in topics-only and in current topic should be working now..  Still some tweaking to do to get search results to be better, but I think we are back to where we were before.
(note that some caching of search results happens so if you search for something again that you searched for prior to my fixes, youll get old empty results until the cache clears).

Yep, that was the first place I went.  Our ip was not on any public blacklists, I think it was just att and hotmail being paranoid by default about an ip they had never seen.

Att says they have removed the black list, and hotmail says they have as well, so we should be good.
