51  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Capture Benefits on: September 08, 2013, 05:31:06 PM
OK, I thought i was through here, but I cannot not respond to this.  Screenshot Capture is the most complex capture program I've seen on the Internet, and I was here before there was a World Wide Web.  That complexity means two (2) things:  amazing adaptability; study is required (anyone remember matrix math in high school?).  That darned complexity that ya hafta study means an adaptability to purpose - whatever yours might be - that simply does not exist in other examples of the genre that have come across my screen.  And, then, there's the horrendous  undecided support issue(s).  Someone makes a request, and it's usually fulfilled within a day or two (2).  Sometimes longer, but very seldom.  I've not dealt with any other software, of any kind, with that kind of developer response.  (Sure, it may exist - but I haven't been exposed to it  ohmy.)  As long as DC and mouser are here, this will continue to be cock o' the walk.

You dislike being pointed at wrong assumptions?

No.  I dislike trolls, your antagonistic approach.  And, those assumptions are yours, not mine.  I'll have no more to do with you, sir or madam.  Fare thee well.

My personal agreement needs refinement, which is something the staff here should care about. According to your profile, you are not a staff member but a random spammer with an ugly penguin in the badges. Now what? Good night.

Perhaps I missed something, but just what does your personal agreement have to do with matters?  This is something that was decided, without your personal approval, I'll grant, but you are not a staff member either.  If you don't like things, leave.  The rest of us can do without trolling.  This ain't your personal ballpark ... the rest of us play here, too.  We'd prefer to do it without constant contention.

People!  The management announced a new area.  Instead of kvetching about it and trying to microdefine it to death, why not post something relevant?!?  You got Linux?  Post Linux-ish.  You got BSD?  Post BSD-ish. You got OS/2?  Post OS/2-ish.  This thread is on page two (2), approaching page three (3), and I've yet to see anything productive posted save for the initial announcement and a few desktops.  Quit trying to micromanage it and start posting.  If you get outside the section parameters, I'm certain that someone will so inform you.  In the meantime, quit trolling.

There can be no realistic expectation of privacy in today's world. A longing for it, perhaps, but not a reasonable expectation of it.

In truth, there's been no reasonable expectation of privacy since the sixties.  At least, not to my mind.  (Yeah, I'm paranoid ... my concern is whether I'm paranoid enough.)

I know! I can give him to Microsoft! He can't be as bad as Steve Ballmer, right? : )

Not unless he grows to be a grizzly  tongue.

(On second thought, a grizzly on the MS campus might be a benefit  tongue tongue tongue.)

One of my cats pees on my stuff.
So?  What did you do to piss that kitty off  huh tongue.  That's usually a tip that said feline is unhappy with management, or at least management's actions of late  Grin Wink.

Hint:  you might try a food alternative - that's worked for me in the past  Thmbsup.

Wasn't attacking you, mouser, just the video.  Thirteen (13) cats over the years (fourteen (14) if you count babysitting Baby Daughter's mischief maker from time to time), so I have somewhat of experience with them.  Some were very cuddly, some not so much, some totally hands off.  But I saw - or thought I did - that cat's ears flatten twice.  I like a good cat video as much as the next guy, perhaps more so because of past experience(s), but that video pretty much left me cold.  Call it a matter of personal preference, I guess.

Sorry, but Dubstep cat borders - ??? - upon cruelty.  And the cat obviously does not enjoy - the ears kinda give that away.  Irresponsible owner, in my opinion.

Who knows what deviltry exists in the hearts of DC ... the lurker knows  tongue.  And, around here, lurking can be very educational  Thmbsup.

It's been interesting to read the interchange(s) 'tween Renegade and wraith808, but methinks 40hz hath the right of it.  I've been a practising anarchist, within current governmental and societal restraints, for years - basically, helping others with things I have or can do.  (A few of you know that, btw  Wink.)  However, we are constrained to work within the limits imposed by our current society, government notwithstanding.  If something is doable within those limits, all fine and well.  If not, we are damned by our own society, whether we support it or not.  If we have allowed PRISM, et. al., there are naught to blame but ourselves.  Star room conferences will always exist, in any societal configuration - can't prevent them, and rarely able to counter/circumvent them.

In order to make change, we have to work within the current system or overthrow that system.  Overthrow is unlikely in the extreme, but change is possible, however unlikely.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the conversations.

Simple but delicious!

Pasta Bake:

Would love to find a way to bake that on ~four (4) inch tostadas - comfort food extraordinaire.

Just use your imagination and whatever you have on hand. If your batter comes out a bit thick with some of these substitutions, add a little water to thin it down. You might even want to take an adventure into using some pureed, cooked vegetables, such as carrots or sweet potatoes.

Take your original ingredient list, diminish by half, replace bananas with carrots, shaved or pureed - I prefer shaved, but it's more work, food processor not withstanding  undecided.  Bake in some mini-loaf pans.  Been doing it for years, and it makes a pleasant change to sweets with coffee.  Flavour, minimal sweet, and complements the taste of the coffee.  Only problem is remembering to mix it the day before - I don' wanna work that hard in the morning for breakfast  tongue.  Oh, one (1) other thing ... if you puree the carrots, they don't have to be all that fresh  Wink.

A not too funny riff on what might happen someday...

Actually has happened ... got picked up and detained a few days for a misconstrued/misheard comment at an office function.  We're at the point that casual comments can be cause for incarceration for the public good.  Methinks 'tis more for the political good, but then, what do I know, I'm just a mere citizen.

They WERE smaller 15 years ago. Then they complained that they couldn't stop crime because they were understaffed. They used that as part of their marketing pitch to add more people and hardware.

And they still haven't stopped crime  Sad Angry tongue!

Congress - now they look as stupid as they sound - should just love the exposure..

Alfred Hitchcock and Les Craven combined could not come up with a scarier picture than a nude congress <shudder />.

Researchers in Japan have come up with a novel way to keep your face out of other people's snapshots taken on digital cameras, smartphones, and possibly Google Glass.

Question in my mind is why did it take so long?  After all, most civilized nations - read uncaring and suspicious of their citizenry - have had some degree of video surveillance in place for quite a while (Can you say, "London?").  Maybe, just maybe, Google is doing us all a favor  undecided tongue tongue?
72  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Worth Reading: Trevor Pott's editorial on NSA PRISM and its real ramifications on: June 20, 2013, 07:11:52 PM
Probably irrelevant, but I don't recall voting for anyone since I achieved - acquired? - majority.

[edit] Wouldn't that be pretty much going for the lesser of evils?  If we've gone that far (or are that far gone)  ...
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Worth Reading: Trevor Pott's editorial on NSA PRISM and its real ramifications on: June 20, 2013, 08:25:01 AM
That concept was developed pretty much in conjunction with the original Internet plans, as I recall.  Remember, the Internet was originally developed by/for DARPA as a distributed communication system to be used in case of an attack on US infrastructure - wonder of any of 'em foresaw just how distributed 'twas to become? - and in order to facilitate total communication, although that latter concept was pretty hazy.  The IAO (Information Awareness Office) was pretty much conceptualized at the same time, by many of the same folk, but didn't really get much attention 'til the World Trade Center was destroyed.  Then later, when the congressional lights realized just what IAO could become, they tried to put the genie back in the bottle by defunding it - kinda like unspilling the milk - but by then the security wights had a taste of what it could be and liked the flavour  Sad.
74  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Peer Review and the Scientific Process on: June 19, 2013, 07:26:33 PM
Y'know, it strikes me that DC is a source of much peer review.  Someone requests a coding snack, for instance.  One (1) of you takes up the challenge, offers a product.  Then, usually, several folk in addition to the requester critique the product.  Then the creator revises it, republishes it - often with code that purveyors can examine - and it goes through review again, often, multiple times.

Yeah, I realize that's not the greatest analogy, but the process is not dissimilar.  We have out naysayers - a few - and we have our innovators and we have our reviewers (wallflowers like me don't count  tongue.).  There's not a significant difference, save for the range of recognition, methinks.

Gained five (5) pounds so far - by intent  Wink! - by exchanging suet for sinew.  At the same time, lost six (6) inches - hey, there was a lot of suet  Grin.  Current combination of diet and exercise seems to be working, for the nonce  undecided.  Doubt I'll lose many more inches, but so far, so good.
