thanks, let me know either way.
127  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: How to make SC go to the last file? on: November 30, 2013, 03:26:36 AM
this is the format i use in the "File Naming Template":

1. i wanted to fine-tune the filenames further so i wrote a custom ahk script to do that as part of the post-capture options.
2. this script parses the newly captured filenames and rename them if it is matches the list of word i want to exclude.
3. after renaming is done, SC refreshes the thumbnail panel and somehow loses the focus on the last captured file.
4. now when i toggle SC's main window, no file has the focus, necessitating a scroll down the panel for the latest file.
5. i would to avoid #3 if possible.
6. in the meantime i will try out your suggestion of calling "ScreenshotCaptor.exe filepath" within the script after renaming is done.

thanks again!

ok, that makes sense. the script renames certain newly captured files.
129  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / How to make SC go to the last file? on: November 30, 2013, 01:31:21 AM
as per title, i have a custom ahk script running after each capture (post-capture options). after the script runs, SC auto-refreshes the thumbnail panel and does not set focus on the latest captured file. is there anything i can do about it?

Firefox also blocks several other plugins out of the box, there is a full list here.

@saralynn: other than crashes and general updating annoyances, i have not been affected by any malware using the plugins as a conduit (touch wood). however my primary concern is whether casual users need flash/java in their computers. i feel that the plugins system is so clunky and awkward and casual users shouldn't be expected to keep up with the latest news of security issues and update/patch diligently.

especially java, i seem to need it for only minecraft (lucky me) and as for flash videos, i don't mind since i don't/can't access to any streaming video sites (e.g. Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, etc) so whenever i see this:

i take it as their loss, not mine. smiley

hmm.. the idea that a company that gets by with revenue from ads is actually going to launch a pro bono social platform for its "users". i believe the bookies stopped taking bets on this one a long time ago.

i'm ok with PDF format but not so with Adobe's unnecessarily bulky updating mechanism. i had used Adobe Acrobat before and didn't find it a hog. however nowadays, i am using the same apps as yourself (SumatraPDF and PDF-XChange Viewer).

most of my video browsing is done on my android devices and when i am at home, i just 'cast' them on my tv instead of watching on the PC. since Adobe themselves don't support Flash on Android, it should be a wake-up call for video content providers to get themselves updated. so because of that, i am holding back from using Flash on my PC.

as i said earlier, Java is a different proposition but thanks for reminding me about the portable setup. i believe i still have your batch files from sometime ago and i will try to use them to recreate a similar setup on PCs that require java.

for some reasons, i am trying to keep Flash, Java & Adobe's PDF off my computer (more specifically out of my home network).

i am quite determined to get by without these ubiquitous trinity, therefore i am wondering if there are any methods being used by the community to do that currently.

as it stands, PDF is the easiest to replace and Flash is in the middle ground, being gradually replaced by HTML5 at most sites. however Java is a different kettle of soup/fish/tea, with it being the prerequisite for some apps/games (damn you, minecraft!). in the long run, i am thinking of a sand-boxed version of java being made available just for those software that requires it.

with my weak google-fu, i could only find this article - http://www.pcworld.com/ar...ava-reader-and-flash.html

sorry about the burnt electronic equipments, i too recently lost a modem and router to a lightning.

but thanks for the read, i love to read about these kind of home network set-ups. thumbs up

powerline/homeplug adapters are something that i am interested in but haven't invested in any. also thanks for the product links, they come in handy when it comes to the specs.

note: links for these two seem to be broken.

146  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Yay! I've got the old style of Gmail Compose back - in Firefox! on: October 01, 2013, 06:04:46 AM
Yes, thanks for getting that link. I referred to the Chrome/Chromium extension in my opening post, but I had not trialled it. Actually, I went to trial it before making the post, but then abandoned it when I read:
...Old Compose is free, but it requires you to share the link on Twitter or Facebook before you get the download. ...
Not with a 10-foot bargepole.

that article on LH must be outdated because now they also require an email address to download.. Grin

also featured in Lifehacker, there is another add-on which automates the UA trick called 'Old Compose'.
