To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

But all seriousness aside, have you done lots of virus scans?  Maybe you have some prankware floating about.

Yeah, Steve Allen did plenty of schtick.  But what I liked as a kid were the "man in the street" interviews.  He had quite a crew with Tim Conway, Louis Nye, Tom Poston and several others who went on to do TV comedy for quite some years.

Later on I appreciated the jazz musicians he had on.  Also talent like Lenny Bruce, Jack Kerouac etc..

Like the old kid TV show host (Sandy Becker? Chuck McCann? Fred Hall? Sonny Fox? - it was one of them) used to do with his character Mr. Backwards. Grin

What was the joke?  Professor Backwards was killed in a mugging today in NYC.  Passers by ignored his cries of "pleh, pleh."

It would have been interesting if GPT support was noted on the chart.  As drive sizes increase I think MBR is going to fade away fast.  Seems as I get new systems there's always some factor that limits my choices.

On XP Paragon Drive Backup Personal seemed great.  But it messed up my partition table in Vista.  I moved to Macrium Reflect.  I got another PC with a software raid controller.  Macrium didn't like it.  Moved to EaseUS ToDo Backup.  EaseUS also had USB 3.0 support with the Linux rescue CD. No need to use WinPE.  Now I'm on a Windows 8.0 Laptop with GPT partitions and secure boot.  It seems at the moment Macrium Reflect is the way to go as the free version includes WinPE and GPT/secure boot support.

I guess the way to have more software to choose from is to stay with something like Windows Seven MBR systems?

There's probably more sophisticated freeware out there for Windows.

Lots of freeware for Windows out there but I couldn't find any for real-time video... just pre-recorded stuff.
I did read about one that flips a video, plays the frames in reverse order, from the end to the beginning.  Who the hell would want that?   Grin

That reminds me of a regular feature on the old Steve Allen Show.  He would do some stupid stuff, like slide down a rope, shoot arrows into a target, break a dozen eggs, throw jugglers pins behind his back into a basket etc..  then play the film backwards.  The pins would jump out of the basket into his hand behind his back, eggs come together, arrows jump from target to the bow, then he'd put them in the quiver... when done he slid up the rope.  Pretty cool because he always had in mind how it would look backwards.

Read your profile but I couldn't tell if you're old enough to know who Steve Allen was.  smiley
58  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Fat Sorter works on Windows 8.0 Home on: March 18, 2014, 10:53:18 AM
Fat Sorter is a free Desktop Program for sorting the FAT.  The main benefit is to get mp3 to play in order as discussed in this thread: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=23047.0

I have been going bonkers trying to force Artie Lange Show podcasts to play in order.  Then I remembered the thread above.  Anyway, it seems to work in as much as dir commands show the files in the order intended.  I just downloaded the program and tried it on Windows 8.0 Desktop.  It seems to install and run without issues.

Just thought I'd mention it as that thread is about 4 years old and some of you running W8 may be ripping your hair out like I was.  smiley

I installed YawCam.  It doesn't give the 16x9 of the App. But the image is the right way around at least.  smiley

So is your non-mirror self looking better?  My test video of me was alarming. Grin  Guess you're satisfied with YawCam?  I see one needs Java for it to work. Sad

I don't really do anything other than check how good a shave I got that morning.  I haven't seen how the output looks from another computer.  One criticism, it seems like unsupported resolutions cause it to just go away.  There's probably more sophisticated freeware out there for Windows.

Thanks. I'll give it a go.  smiley

Edit:  Save with Pale Moon and open with Firefox works fine. But I cannot open the file in Opera or Chrome.  But I don't use them often anyway.  smiley

Edit2:  The maff format seems to work with every page I've tried except gmail inbox.  None of the links are external to internet.  When you click it's just no response.  So far that's the only dud though.  smiley

Edit3:  My bad. I see the generated file has an embedded external link to the source at the top.

If I try that my camera just shuts down — it's too frightened by what it sees  Sad

Aiiyyy!!  I just had my picture taken this morning.  It's more horrible than anything you can imagine.   All I can compare it to is if Clint Eastwood had a mustache, was deceased, allowed to rot for 2 months, and propped up in a chair.  Then he'd look almost as bad as this photo. 

Perhaps you should have checked yourself in your "webcam mirror" first. :-P

The opportunity was not extended.  They click you at your worst.. like when you blink.
65  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dumb question but ... on: March 12, 2014, 10:35:05 AM
My first inclination is to suspect the webcam software may be flipping the image for local display but sending it the right way around to other programs. That would be the first thing I'd check anyway.

If that's the case, hopefully there would be some sort of settings you could adjust to control that behavior, although that doesn't appear to be the case for a Dell webcam under Windows 8. A quick search suggests they dropped their Webcam Central program for Windows 8 in favor of reliance on the Microsoft Camera app.

Unfortunately the settings consist of Video Mode on/off and the bit depth.  That's it.  No flip or rotate.  I guess I need to download some desktop freeware.  But it definitely is a mirror image.

Dumb question but I'm wondering why when I run Camera on my Laptop I get the same perspective as when I look in the mirror?  In other words, since it's video and not a mirror I would expect the display to show me as others see me, not reversed.  If I pick up my right hand and wave, it shows in the video as my "left hand" just as if it were a plain reflection.  Strikes me as strange.
68  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Simple Application to set all tray icons to always hide on: March 10, 2014, 02:59:51 PM
I was a long holdout on windows XP, but after finally moving to windows 7, my advice is that the best solution to managing system tray is to migrate to Windows 7, which lets you choose which icons to show in system tray.

I wish they would enhance the interface a bit.  The only way to avoid clicking a drop down box per icon is to set them all on with the check box.  There should be an option "only hide the annoying preloaded bloatware icons" or something.  smiley

Speak of the devil.  An update was released March 7:
http://www.toolwiz.com/time-freeze-change-log/


Edit:  I gave it a quick try.  I didn't notice anything different.  It's okay to have for free I suppose if I ever get a crazy impulse to surf in shark infested waters.  smiley

^^ Thanks for the explanation + info. Very interesting.

Sure thing.  Maybe this will work better on a desktop.  But lately no matter how careful I am about shutting down, it seems to hose my Tray Icon settings and lose the toolbar.  Also now and then I notice a lag, then "unresponsive plugin" in Pale Moon.  It would be nice if it worked effortlessly.  But the added boot times and other side effects make it a distraction.  For now I'm disabling it.

@MilesAhead: Where you say:

"... when next time it comes up the program comes up enabled instead of requiring me to start it."
Could you be more precise please? Which program are you describing?
I am very interested in how you are getting along with ToolWiz Time Freeze. Depending on your experience, I may trial it myself.


I'm talking ToolWiz Time Freeze.  So far I like it.  One thing though, MBAM scans are slower with it enabled.  How I'm running it so far is to come up disabled in the tray.  I start it, then connect to WiFi etc..
If I want to do a scan or make an image backup I reboot.  It comes up disabled again.  Now I can do scans or whatever.  I have another partition for data.  I can just download to that without setting any exemptions.  It only protects the system partition.  When shutting down the Laptop I hold down shift to avoid sleep mode.  That way when I bring it up next time Time Freeze is in tray disabled again.  The boots aren't as fast as coming out of sleep.  But using Time Freeze is pretty much a no brainer.  I just accepted the defaults.

As I get used to it I will probably run fewer scans.  I guess I should run MBAM scans on the unprotected partition as well as the occasional quick scan.  So far when I've rebooted out of Time Freeze and done a scan with MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware everything has been clean.

Edit: The main confusion in using it so far for me is the shutdown.  If the program is active I need to hold shift on shutdown. If it is inactive in the tray I need to just click shutdown which is a form of sleep.  Like just awhile ago out of habit I shutdown holding shift.  When it came up my tray icons were all hidden.  I had to reset all the settings.  But as time goes on I should remember.  smiley

Edit2: As I was getting accustomed to using Time Freeze it did come up active one time.  Clicking in the tray icon to turn it off was a pretty slow reboot.  That's one of the main reasons I have it start disabled.  But others may just choose to have it come up running.

72  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Evernote, the bug-ridden elephant. on: March 06, 2014, 01:45:42 PM
Speaking of Evernote, has anyone been able to download it?  I've been trying to download 5.20 for 3 days.  No matter what link I start with I end up with "waiting for cdn1.evernote.com"  and it just hangs.

Edit: One last try and I got it.  Not sure I want it.  But I am a bit curious. smiley

Edit2:  After all that I downloaded into the folder on the system partition.  Which means it went into the ToolWiz Time Freeze shadow cache.  Unbelievable!  smiley
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best (free?) Sandbox? on: March 04, 2014, 04:40:37 PM
I remember reading about SD awhile back.  I don't remember if I tried it though.  The technical write-up was impressive.  On the Laptop one "hazard" I'm running into is if I forget and do a fake shutdown (sleep) then next time it comes up the program comes up enabled instead of requiring me to start it.  I can either reboot or hold down shift during shutdown to get it to act as expected.

This slows down the boot up a bit.  Can't have everything I guess.  So far I haven't found any complaints about Time Freeze.  I'll run it a bit longer.  I don't like to use av "shield" software as it doesn't seem as smooth as just using the shadow mechanism.

When I had 2 desktop PCs I figured I could use the working machine to fix the broken one if one got hosed.  Now with just the Lappy I should be a bit more cautious.  smiley

-  Applications that don't need to reboot - 'Toolwiz Time Freeze' is an excellent choice.

I'm just trying this out now.  For what it's worth, it seems to run as advertised on my Windows 8 x64 Laptop.  I just tried a simple test.  Download a file to desktop, then reboot.  File was gone after logon.   Seems nice and simple.

Only thing with these Returnil type utilities I absently tweak things, then remember changes are discarded.  Supposedly if you quit the app from the tray the changes are kept though.

I found 27.0 portable and managed to overwrite stuff. I have 27.0 back and Password Dialog Begone seems to work.  Anyway I made a post on PortableApps forum bitching about them pulling the .0s as soon as they have a .01.  Especially with FF it's a royal pita.   Grin
