I suppose it's possible -- it's certainly possible that if another program locked or tried modifiying one of the CHS .dat files that could cause a problem.
But it is very unlikely that simply changing a file association of .dat files could have done this, so I wouldn't be too quick to blame yourself or another program.

I deleted two .dat files. Are these the database files?  DonationCoder_clipboardhelp....dat  and another>
Nope; you want to delete the entire contents of the Clipboard Help and Spell DATABASE subdirectory.
(WHEN I SAY DELETE I MEAN BACK IT UP FIRST JUST IN CASE AND THEN DELETE THE CONTENTS).


The "Database" subdirectory inside your ClipboardHelpAndSpell directory.
This will either be in the installation directory if you are running portably or on Windows XP.
On Windows 7/8 it will be under MyDocuments\DonationCoder\ClipboardHelpAndSpell.
105  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: DBISAM Engine Error # 9732 on: July 09, 2014, 11:22:37 AM
Or, even before you try restoring from a backup, you might try exiting CHS, moving all files out of that Database directory, and then restarting CHS to give you a completely empty blank database.  Make sure that works without any errors, and then try restoring one of those backups.
106  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: DBISAM Engine Error # 9732 on: July 09, 2014, 11:08:18 AM
It sounds like your clip database has gotten corrupted somehow.

Ok let's back up and do first things first:

Exit CHS
Then go to where your CHS database is stored (defaults to Documents\DonationCoder\ClipboardHelpAndSpell\Database).
Zip up that database directory, and copy it someplace safe.
And copy the BACKUPS directory someplace safe.

AFTER you have made copies of all those files, so that we can always go back to where you are now, you might try this:

Then look in your Backups\ directory and see if there is a recent backup file with a date that if you rolled back to you wouldn't lose any important clips.  If so, you can try to restore to that backup from that same Backup/Maintenance tab within CHS.
107  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: DBISAM Engine Error # 9732 on: July 09, 2014, 09:29:31 AM
Close the error message(s) and then go to Options dialog and then to the Backup/Maintenance tab, and then click "Verify or Repair Database".
See if that helps.

Another party board game mini-review, this time for a game called "Telestrations".

[attach=1] [attach=2]

Telestrations is a light-hearted drawing game that works similarly to the kids game of "Telephone".  Each player gets a secret word (or phrase), and tries to draw it.  They then pass along their pad clockwise to the next player who looks at the picture they drew, and tries to guess (in words) a description what it is a drawing of.  Then that player passes along the pad clockwise and the recipient draws a picture of the description that the previously player wrote.  So as each pad goes around the circle, it becomes a sequence of drawing, description, drawing, description, etc..

After each pad has gone around the circle, players take turns becoming the center of attention and showing off the sequence of drawings and descriptions in their pad while everyone else laughs at how wrong things went.

The best part of this game is that the worst artists create the most fun.  Children will especially enjoy being the center of attention as people enjoy the mayhem.

It's a pure fun game that should work well for any group, has tons of laughs, and is great for kids of all ages.  Highly recommended.

The normal edition supports up to 8 players; there is a "party pack" that goes up to 11 or 12.

Today's board game microreview is for "Wits and Wagers".
[attach=1]

Wits and Wagers is a very clever mixture of trivia, betting, and social interaction.  It's fast to play, super easy for anyone, and easily supports 7 players or more with teams.

Gameplay works essentially like this:  On each round a trivia question is read that has a numerical answer.  All players (teams) write down their answer on a dry erase card, and then all answers are laid out in numerical order.  At this point, everyone can bet on which answers are correct.  In this way, even if you have no idea what the answer is, you have a chance to bet on the answers from people who you think might know.

The social element of seeing what answers others gave, and how confident they are, and the range of answers -- is all quite fun.  And the strategy and risk taking of betting your accumulated chips is very fun.

I've played this twice now with large groups -- the first time was fun but not magical; the second time -- playing with people i didn't know well, was extremely fun.

Highly recommended if you have a large group of adults.  There are special editions for families and kids (though i think it works better with adults).

My program is probably the last one that should be recommended, as it is not "easy" (despite the name) and not very polished -- at least at this point.

There must be some other good free screencasting tools.

What the? This happens to you too dluby?  Can you shed more light on what triggers it?  Can anyone reliably reproduce the error with a specific set of actions? If it can be reproduced it can be fixed.

Thanks for reporting squeaky.. I wonder why it was not able to create them itself..
114  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture only part of a scrolling window on: July 07, 2014, 10:25:29 AM
You move the red box initially to cover the area of the screen that the content will be scrolling through -- so usually it will cover the entire size of the window on the screen; you will be able to trim off scrollbars and stuff later so don't even worry about that.  The fact that you almost always want to capture the entire window contents is why normally you leave the red box to autosize to the window.

Then you follow the instructions and scroll the contents of the window with the mouse or keys, and hit prtscr after each scroll.

Did you watch the video here: http://www.donationcoder....sts/dc/3ds/sc29/sc29.html

In the end Screenshot Captor will stitch all the images together and let you tweak how they are stitched.
115  DonationCoder.com Software / Mouser's Zone / Re: Error upon installation and when running. on: July 07, 2014, 10:06:23 AM
Something must be unusual about your system.. Did you use the installer or the portable version?
Did you copy over an installation (or configuration settings) from another computer?

It sounds like you are saying it installed ok but gives this error when it runs.  The behavior you are describing sounds to me like the problem is that it is trying to save its settings (and the screenshot folder) on a disk that it can't access.

If you have not copied settings from another machine:  Exit Screenshot Captor, then edit the ConfigDir.ini file in the Screenshot Captor install directory and provide it with a legal place where it can store your settings (make sure to remove the // comment characters when you do).

Let us know if it works.

Just saw Blue Ruin, a great thriller about revenge.

[EDIT: Don't read the blurbs or watch the trailers, go into it knowing nothing]

Highly recommended low-budget low-key movie.  No real twists or surprise endings, just a slow, steady, satisfying burn.
118  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture only part of a scrolling window on: July 07, 2014, 09:05:08 AM
The manual capture mode is brand new, and could use some refinement; the red box disappears but the area you selected the first time is the area used during the capture, even though the red box is no longer shown.
(I'll try to fix that and leave the red box on screen for the next release).

When I click Button 2 and follow the instructions , I do not get a red rectangle whose width and length
that I can change by "pulling on its corner", so that reshapes up/down and left/right to capture the screen area that I want
to capture.


By default the red box will be in OBJECT mode which will autosize to the window region defined by the window control under the cursor automatically.
But if you click on the gear button in the top left you can switch it out of Object selection mode and then resize that window to the exact size and position you want.
120  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Could security app be blocking paste of license key into program? on: July 06, 2014, 12:20:51 PM
So I've had a few reports recently about people being unable to paste their license key into the license key dialog of Screenshot Captor, and I haven't been able to think of why that's happening.

In the lastest case, they were getting the blank captures after install, which was confirmed to be the known problem with some over-eager security utility blocking the capturing of screenshots (see http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=20962.0 and http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=35475.0).

Which got me wondering.. is it possible that it's the security program blocking the pasting of an email snippet into a target application?

Does anyone know any mainstream security utilities that do this?

It might be nice to see a video of this in action to get a feel for how it works.. There are some free screencasting tools you could use.

Ok but also let me remind everyone that we try to avoid talking politics on the forum, so let's try to avoid generic political debates here.
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Declaration of Independance- some scholars say we've been reading it wrong. on: July 06, 2014, 04:12:14 AM
It's a fascinating idea that an old transcript could have an error that gets passed down through the years -- and a fascinating idea that a punctuation change could make a dramatic difference.
On closer inspection, however, it looks like just that -- a cool idea that's too tempting to pass up, even if it doesn't amount to anything.
Period or not -- i don't see any change at all in meaning -- which is still very much in the eye of the beholder.
Whether there is a period in that spot or not is purely stylistic -- i see no way to credibly argue that it changes any meaning or even any emphasis.
