Thanks aparente001 -- it's a word i have a lot of difficulty spelling!

Click on the header column labeled "ID" in your picture above, to change the sorting order.

Nice, thanks for sharing that  thumbs up

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..

Correct.

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

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

is it only that application that launches that way?

is there anything odd about it that might cause that to happen?
14  DonationCoder.com 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.

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:

FARR: http://www.donationcoder....Mouser/findrun/index.html
FCALC plugin: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=8769.0


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

22  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Portable Installation - Updating Existing to New Version on: May 11, 2015, 11:59:41 AM
Exit Screenshot Captor if running and then just unzip new portable .zip file into your old directory, overwriting files.  You should be all set.
The portable zip does not contain a settings file so it won't overwrite your existing settings.
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Feature Request: SC to freeze the on-screen display prior to clipping an image. on: May 11, 2015, 10:51:55 AM
Nothing to be embarrassed about.  Another possibility is that if you haven't used SC in a long time, but you've been doing other things, windows may unload it from memory even if it's running in the system tray.  So in some cases this could mean that there is a slight delay between hitting the PrtScr button and having SC actually trigger the capture.  Maybe that's what happened before.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Feature Request: SC to freeze the on-screen display prior to clipping an image. on: May 11, 2015, 06:41:35 AM
Can you see if the shift key alone causes the popup message to disappear instantly, or what about prtscr key alone?

The only constraint in using SC in this case seems to be in taking any screenshot of an area of the screen which contains a system pop-out window - and there were 2 such instances in this case. SC couldn't take such a clip without closing the pop-out window first, every time I tried it.


How are you triggering the capture?  Are you using Shift+PrtScr to do a selected-region capture, or just plain PrtScr to capture entire screen?  If Shift+PrtScr, are you using the normal way to select a region which shows crosshairs that go from top to bottom and left to right of screen? Or are you using RedBox mode?

The motivation for these questions:  Unless you have changed the region-capture mode to RedBox mode, SC should freeze the screen before engaging region capture mode.  One possibility for what you are seeing is that the keystrokes to engage the capture are closing the pop-up message before SC engages.

Can you do a few more experiments and see if you can figure out a few more clues?
