it is surreal to see my custom tools menu from 3 years ago.

Show us a screenshot!

it's on the other thread, meant to copy-paste but forgot about it but here it is now.

It's really easy to add custom tools to the Tool menu -- you can do that entirely from within the program.
You can also create little .sctool files which can be shared so that others don't even have to do that much.
it is surreal to see my custom tools menu from 3 years ago. btw, some of the tools are quite obsolete due to advances in SC. however, the idea is still valid.

This is a .NET 4 (full, not client) build. There is no installer - it's simply unzip & run. There is no new functionality. The only change is an update to .NET 4.
thanks for the update!

So i broke down and got myself a new router (ASUS Dual-Band Wireless-N 600 Router RT-N56U).

So I'm using stock firmware on this for now; i *MIGHT* put tomato on this router, i might not.

i am using the same model and so far the stock FW has been adequate for my needs. however if you want to try out a custom FW, check out Padawan's FW. more info here.

the settings stick if i manually start and exit. there are no other versions of SC installed and it's at the same location all this while.
132  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Turn off INI backups on: September 08, 2013, 01:53:00 AM
this is on a PC running WinXP SP3 and i have enabled SC's internal option for starting with Windows.

this is the current settings. (but yet to reboot..)

i have always used SC in portable mode. these are the two lines in my ConfigDir.ini

Quote
PORTABLE=TRUE
CONFIGDIR = .

i will post the results of the 2nd part when i have completed a reboot. thanks..
134  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Turn off INI backups on: September 07, 2013, 08:20:03 PM
i had to the opportunity to restart the computer this morning, and SC had its settings reset to default. i attach the newer INI file which overwrote my custom settings. maybe it could shed some light on the cause.

DisplayFusion Pro (DFP) is a very capable multi-monitor tool. It has many, many useful features but the one that attracted my attention was the multi-monitor taskbars. they somewhat clicked in my multi-monitor environment, unlike plenty of other multi-monitor tools that i have tried. DFP adds a taksbar on each monitor complete with its own start button, tray clock and display active windows that are relevant to each monitor (this feature is customizable) and as an added bonus DFP handles non-standard windows (such as MS Office, Steam, Winamp, Chrome, etc) pretty well.

Check here for a rundown on other prominent features. btw, DFP is extensively customizable, which is a boon to if you like to tweak your workspace to suit your needs. Another plus point is that the devs are accessible and are quite attentive to the users' suggestions and requests. They also promise a lifetime license for all purchases, as mentioned here.

You said that it's using the backup instead of the latest -- is it possible instead that its merely resetting to all default options?
i had assumed SC is restoring from the backup but as you highlighted it is plausible that the settings are just being reset to the defaults.

Second question: is it possible that this behavior only happens after restarting the computer?
sometimes it happens after restarting the computer but it also happens when cold-booting the PC.

also worth mentioning, for some crazy reason i have the "start with windows" turned off within SC. instead i load SC via batchrun.
138  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Turn off INI backups on: September 03, 2013, 12:04:21 AM
the whole thing is quite random but normally it happens upon startup. one of the telltale sign is the screenshot folder would be changed to a folder within the SC folder, instead of the custom one that i had chosen previously. i'd be more than happy to provide my INI file, if that would help.
139  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Turn off INI backups on: September 02, 2013, 11:21:13 PM
i have had instances where the newer ini files have been overwritten by the backup. i have no idea why this happens but the default ini goes missing replaced by the older ini.
140  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Turn off INI backups on: September 02, 2013, 09:34:31 PM
i am using the latest version 4.6 beta and i am wondering if it is possible to turn off SC's auto-backing-ups of the INI files. thanks.

if i have to upgrade, it would be for a mouse that works on glass surface

In the ~15 years I've been in IT, I've only run across that scenario once ... And when I finally (noticed the red dot on my shoe...) figured out what was happening damn did I feel like an idiot.
thanks for the imagery.. i hadn't thought of that situation.. smiley

2013-08-29: I just updated the OP mini-review with some of the comments above.
Thanks, chaps.
I too think the Logitech mice are superb. I shall probably do a review of the Logitech M515 ("Couch") Mouse that my daughter uses.

the M515 Couch mouse is an excellent mouse. my wife has been using it for about a year now and still yet to replace the batteries.

if i have to upgrade, it would be for a mouse that works on glass surface, like the ones with the new "Darkfield" technology.

as interesting as this review is, i prefer Logitech mice which comes in all shapes and sizes with superior (imo) ergonomic features.

normally i set the LV to sort by modified date but it will randomly reset itself to sort by name.

this will be fixed in next release (4.6).

as for the small name column though, that is still somewhat of a mystery to me.
Fixed in latest beta.

thanks mouser! the beta is working fine. no more random resets in listview sort order.
