I've had an old friend visiting for the last 12 days and we saw several movies:

  • Mad Max Fury Road - Not bad, but basically one long car chase.
  • Tomorrowland - I hated it; friend liked it.
  • Poltergeist (2015) - Should have walked out half way; terrible.
  • Wild Tales (2014) - Spanish subtitled.  LOVED LOVED LOVED IT. Highly recommended.

Hi hoffmann.

I've just reproduced the problem -- looks like you've found a bug with the Ctrl+C copy procedure not copying the bottom-right row and column.

Stay tuned I'll try to have a beta update tonight or tomorrow that fixes it.

Thanks for reporting the bug!

Hi Furtive!

I'm surprised more people don't ask for this.
What you did should have worked -- you probably have to restart the program before it will take effect.

However, there is an easier way.  Go to the "More Interface Options" tab -- near the bottom is where you can customize the sound file used.

Process Tamer web page is here: http://www.donationcoder....user/proctamer/index.html

The program isn't a magic cure-all, and won't make your old pc suddenly into some super fast modern gaming workstation.

It's a small utility that can be useful in some situations, where you have a process that for some reason is dominating your cpu:

There are times when a process will hog your cpu, such as when converting audio/video files, or working with compressed archives. Because these processes completely consume the cpu, your system becomes sluggish to respond and using the computer for other tasks becomes impossible while these processes are running.  Process Tamer solves this problem by identifying such these degenerate conditions and temporarily reducing the priority of the offending processes in order to allow your system to respond to other requests.

The other way that Process Tamer can be useful is in IDENTIFYING the processes that may hog your cpu and make it unresponsive -- if such behaviors are happening unexpectedly.

On a modern multicore cpu, a program like Process Tamer is less useful than on an older cpu, because the presence of multiple cores means that even if one process is completely hogging a core, your operating system may remain fully responsive by using the other cores.

Well I'm going to have to read this since I am still using CrashPlan..

12 Software / ProcessTamer / Re: CPU Smoothing? on: May 17, 2015, 12:24:28 PM
Welcome desiree!

Let me try to explain the concept of the cpu usage measurement smoothing.

First of all, understand that the setting does not change your cpu -- it refers to how the program MEASURES how busy your cpu is when it decides whether it should tame a program.

If the setting is at the far extreme towards "Might Jump the Gun" it means that the program is always looking at the current, instantaneous cpu use of the program -- so as soon as the program uses a lot of cpu for even a fraction of a section, Process Tamer will view the program as something to be tames.

As the slider moves more towards the "Might React Too Slowly" end, Process Tamer will AVERAGE the cpu use of an application over a longer and longer period, and only pay attention to the recent average.  So if you set it at the far end of that scale, a program could hog the cpu for 10 minutes before Process Tamer decides the application needs to be tamed.

So the default setting is reasonable, and you could move it a bit towards "might react too slowly" if you have applications that are being tamed when they really are just using high cpu for a short period that you don't care about.  Or move it towards "might jump the gun" if you find that process tamer is waiting longer than it should before kicking in and taming an app.

Bottom line: It's not a setting you are likely to benefit from much by changing it away from default.

Nice! I was just thinking recently that it would be nice to learn a few basic knots.  thumbs up

15 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR launching local exe file into Firefox for download on: May 16, 2015, 03:37:12 AM
Well, setting that should NOT have caused that problem!
You should be able to set firefox there.
So something must have been confusing farr and making it think that the password generator thing was a url somehow?

I've noticed and dwelled on it and agonized and stressed over it.  It's very troubling.
Nice to see I'm not the only one.  Thanks for the links I'm looking forward to reading his take on it.

It certainly counts. Welcome to the thread  thumbs up
18 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR launching local exe file into Firefox for download on: May 15, 2015, 04:40:35 PM
is it only that application that launches that way?

is there anything odd about it that might cause that to happen?
19 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR launching local exe file into Firefox for download on: May 15, 2015, 04:40:00 PM
how odd!!

can you check your settings on the "External Tools and Plugins" tab and see if you have anything custom set.

Ok a quick car-related gadget today, some unusual jack stands for those who do maintenance under their cars.

These are expensive, at $63 (compares to standard jack stands which might be half that cost), but the consensus seems to be that they feel much more secure.
I can't compare but I can say that I was very impressed with their stability, size, secureness, and weight:

oy that sucks, it's bound to confuse people and cause problems.
Thanks for the links Ath, looks like i have to change the hashing algorithm and/or generate new code signing certificates.  I'll try to do so this week.
22 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: you have a newer version... on: May 15, 2015, 07:23:18 AM
Oops, will fix.
Most often that will happen if you install a beta, but I can see that I didn't change it to reflect even that last official update.

How cool is this -- a jaguar playing and swimming under water. I love when he just floats under water:

For super quick calc with tape, I use my own fcalc plugin with FARR:

FCALC plugin:

Not nearly as powerful or fancy as the others, but has the benefit of being always available if you already use FARR.
