Screenshot Captor / Re: How to change a HotKey?
« on: Today at 04:57 AM »
hi andrewlen

see the top half of your screenshot:
Shift+Prtscr is one of the listed 'fixed' hotkeys -- you can change it there in the dropdown list.

PS I am unable to get a screenshot of the hotkeys 'page' in options -- I can get shots of other pages -- di you have a problem getting that screenshot?

I installed Jdowloader2 and this horrible software changed my Firefox search engine to horrible bing.com!
I wonder how can I revert it back and what other 'alterations' it made to my system??
Were you not change (back) the default search engine and home page yourself (?)

And can you elaborate on the 'fake google results'?

He can make as many requests as he wants to.  We don't have to answer him.  And we certainly don't have to make fun of his responses.
First, I agree with Wraith above. (And I have been guilty of same in the past.)

Sometimes, I give up and forget and no longer pursue my requirements because I cannot find something satisfying, I don't see what problem this causes to you.
It is about a lot more than this -- that was just one point in about six or seven in my last post. I'm not saying all this to give you a hard time Kalos. I would like though if you could see the POV of the people who try and help you. I still think this is a good learning opportunity for you, and maybe for 'us' too.
At the end of the day, it's about communication, and respect.
The way I see it, you have been persistently asked to make more of an effort when asking for help -- and you dont do that.
Maybe Wraith's point that people simply stop trying so much to help you is the best idea. Stop helping = less stress + Kalos doesnt get a hard time :-/

I don't know why you bully me all the time....

there has been an unfortunate dynamic evolving Kalos, but there is a lot you can do about it. You've been fairly thick-skinned up until now -- which, on the one hand, I admire, but it seems to have the disadvantage that you dont listen to / take note of what people say -- or you decide to ignore.  You could take this as an opportunity to learn a few things. Here a couple of examples:

1) OP has asked for recommendations for software to perform a certain function.
2) Recommendations were given but OP gives no indication that any of them have actually been tried apart from being downloaded and having the AV complain about them.
3) [Insert number here] months later OP repeats same request and provides no explanation of why any previous suggestion was unsuitable because he has not tried them.
4) Repeat from step 2.

hi Kalos
I have said elsewhere:
you *consistently* start threads without giving enough information -- this then has to be dragged out of you one question at a time. I need a lot of help on computer myself: I'm the opposite of an expert. One of the things I learned very quickly (I was told) is this: be as helpful as possible when asking for help. Give as much info as you possibly can, do research beforehand, and let them know what you found/didnt find. If a problem, try and fix it yourself: report on that. If you are helpful in these ways, you make the job of the person helping you much easier, and much more rewarding.
I'm no saint, I forget all that regularly, but I'm aware of it, and make up for it where and when I can.

now imagine you want to help some person who has made a post about uninstalling games:
what other info would you need / want in order to be able to help that person?

Requires a little thought maybe, and writing things clearly so we understand without too much effort or interrogation.

I usually have a delay of one to two seconds at the most with a much slower machine**. But it can depend on what you're taking shots of -- is it mostly browser/s? There is a relevant setting in preferences that may help with those:
Basic Capturing >Capture Options >Retrieve URL [untick]

** if I take a lot of shots, it does slow down a lot.

One of my favorite things about this site is people working together and supporting each other's projects... This is a really nice example of that.
And no words can describe the difference that the mascot Cody that Nick created, has made on the spirit of this site.

^ already addressed AFAICS.
And you say you can use a different browser - try PaleMoon or Firefox ESR
I gave Downthemall a try, but is there a way to make the downloads delay every x seconds so that I won't abuse the server???
You can configure concurrent downloads and downloads-per-server in DownThemAll - that really should be all you need to to avoid "abusing" anything :)

^ if you mean the previous post:

the scrolling problem (due to the '117-line strings') goes from being a vertical problem to being a horizontal one (once wordwrap turned off).

(With apologies in advance if you meant something completely different!)

Joss Stone with guitarist Leon King (+ band of course) -- I Put a Spell on You
North Sea Jazz Festival 2017

I believe her first version of this was with Jeff Beck, but I love the guitar in this one:

It had a proper wax seal on the back of the envelope, a rouble taped to it, and a hand made silver scratch-off message!
It was very fun opening it.

sounds intriguing  :-*

@Tomos: Sorry, but I thought Google's blocking this [API] was already quite clear from the Picasa blog:
clear from their blog as of March 26th 2018 (it may have been clear earlier, but I dont think so) -- either way, I, and lots of other people using Picasa this way didnt know about it.

There's nothing to stop you from using Picasa as an image management tool/database, and shipping up the photos to Google Photos, as required. (I had thought that was what you were intending doing.)
the nice thing about Picasa is you can create as many albums as you like:
Family photos are a good example -- using Picasa's face-recognition 'face-tags' I created albums for each family within the extended family; an album for my mother's family; an album for each brother and sister; for each aunt/uncle; etc. They're all subsets of the full collection of photos. AFAICS these albums are now useless (because I hadnt synced them yet).

I am unable to reproduce them in google photo without starting from scratch (it doesnt recognise Picasa's face-tags). I guess I'll just copy them from the Picasa album to a new local folder and offer them as zipped downloads -- not so accessible, especially to non-computer-literate people. Although...
I wonder if I upload an image twice to google photo -- to two different albums, will it recognise that it has the images already, and just 'tag' the copy it has already with the new album.

Google has disabled Picasa's ability to upload / download / sync photos to google photo.

The Picasa Desktop application will no longer support uploading or downloading photos and videos, creating online albums, or deleting online photos, videos and albums (see our update in the blog post here). If you try to upload or download, you may see something like:

    “Failed to download album list”
    “Error: Failed to retrieve URL for upload”
    “Error: Request failed”
    The upload manager staying at 0% progress

If you want to upload photos and videos to Google Photos, you can use Backup and Sync at photos.google.com/apps.

I hate google right now :-/

Already bought material to make a frame.. Stay tuned..

I'd like it clean, or with a minimal frame, but I have been proved wrong with my ideas in the past ;-)
