5301  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / How to extract pics from a screensaver? on: November 23, 2007, 06:27:13 PM
I have a screensaver with some pictures that I like very much, and with some that I really dislike. Merely taking screenshots of each picture will take too long, and will limit the dimensions to my present screen. So I thought I would ask all of you geniuses: How do I extract pictures from a screensaver? The content seems to be 'hidden' in a .dat file.


Edit: FileJuicer is for Mac, are there any Windows XP equivalent??

I did managed to capture my number 1200, but decided that 1234 somehow was a *nicer* number to celebrate! I almost missed it, but realized by accident that Now was the time, though the content of 1234 actually was sort of a prank:

It is very important for you to check out if your credit card is safe!!
-and of course it is equally important to use this link only, now!
And by all means you have to select both "Credit Card Provider" and "Your Country"
- and Start Safety Search.
- and then to see if your credit card is safe!

An even greater part is that you don't have to share any private informations
- or to give any access to your computer (quite a miracle)!

Oh, man, this Safety Search is so important, go check it out right now!!  Cool


Remember to press the button:

- and to first turn on the sound and maybe install Flash Player.

... 5 minutes later: I found a Macromedia key in the registry that somehow escaped my previous cleansing, and the suffix was "Version". I deleted the key, and installed flash without any problems! Problem solved.

The picture in my previous post is showing a standalone version. And as I wrote earlier in the thread, the problem have so far been regardless of what browser I was using. Yes, the answer may be some CLSID, but where are the names to make certain you are handling the right one? No, you were right: "not recommended"; such action may call more for insight than for bravery.
5306  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Help needed (again): Miro "destroyed" all my videos! on: November 22, 2007, 02:15:04 PM
... - Try installing a new movie/music player, like KMPlayer, VideoLAN or perhaps GOM Player and let it take over all supported extensions.

This advice turned out to be the solution. But it took me some weeks to do it the right way, because installing Media Player Classic wasn't enough. However, installing the newest RealPlayer 11 did the trick, and all file types are back to normal.

Thanks, Dirhael!  thumbs up

By now it has been almost a full month in which I have had no Internet browser Adobe ActiveX flash player, and it is getting very frustrating to me.

I was not aware how often I watch flash movies one way or the other, but now I know it is every day. So many times I have been asked if I want to install Adobe Flash Player, and so many times I have clicked Yes, but to no avail: Each and every time I try to install, the Adobe installer will pop up at once and tell me that "this is not the newest version" and I need to go to Adobe to download a new version - and then the installer will abort setup with no further options than to give up installing.

Of course I have been using new versions only, both .47 and .64 Beta, from both this and that download link, - I even tried the newest of the old archive versions - but these stupid popup messages keeps saying my versions are too old.

I have again and again uninstalled the proper way, by using the newest official Adobe Flash Uninstaller, version, various copies.

I have tried to remove any traces of Adobe and Macromed from the registry keys
- I even removed Adobe PDF Reader just for the sake of it.

I have uninstalled and updated this and that, including Java, but so far without any luck.

[Edit: I should tell that when I try to install from Adobe's homepage, the installation is never successful.]

Adobe seems to have decided not to answer my cry-outs for help.

What can I do??

5314  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Rumor: 15 Blu-Ray movies with PS3 purchase at Wall-Mart. Only 24+25/11-2007 on: November 20, 2007, 10:25:39 AM
CyberNet Technology News tells about a rumor:

Posted: 19 Nov 2007 12:52 PM CST

 This rumor by no means has been confirmed, but we’re telling you about it so that you can keep your eye out for it. If it’s true, it’s an awesome deal. Rumor has it that starting on November 24th at 8 AM and running through November 25th at 11:59 PM, Wal-Mart is having another “secret” sale. They’ll be selling the 80GB PS3 system for $499 (its usual price) but buyers will be able to choose 10 Blu-Ray titles under $30 for free. Add those 10 to the 5 you already get by mail through Sony’s program, and you’ll have 15 Blu-ray movies worth over $400.

The user who reported this deal at says he works at a Wal-Mart in the electronics department which leads me to believe he does actually know what he’s talking about . He said stores were just notified on Saturday and that a link for it won’t be available until about Wednesday. According to what he knows, Wal-Mart is stocking up big for this! He says “For those stores that carry BD already, additional titles are being sent in for the sale.  For those that do not have BD in their store (a small minority), product will be sent to each store specifically for this sale.“

Here we thought Wal-Mart was supporting the HD DVD camp after they sold that Toshiba player for under 100 bucks! Turns out they’re not taking sides, and they’re supporting both pretty equally. Anybody considering buying a Playstation 3 to get 15 free movies if this rumor turns out to be true?

The weekend is over by now, at least here in Denmark, so it is time for the explanation - and it was given by both f0dder and mwb1100. Peter Bowie explains:

The four parts in the picture above appear to be a triangle, but they are actually not.
The angles in the red and green triangle are slightly different, but hardly noticeable.
You can calculate this by dividing the height and width of these triangles.
So, when you move these parts around, you get a different shape.  These two shapes look
like large triangles but they are not. 
The long line in the upper 'triangle' is bent downward a little
The long line in the lower 'triangle' is bent upward a little and the difference in total surface is exactly one square.
Hope it makes a bit sense now.

I have had both programs for some months by now, but I have still not found any use for them - except for the fun of it. I guess you have to have some kind of vision - and the proper material to make it happen. I have thousands of fine pictures, but I seem to be missing a vision...

... I write fiction in my spare time, everything from modules for games to actual novels, and I find it perfect for that, ....  I'd heartily recommend it to any writers, ...

As a writer you should give it to yourself to try out the portable Liquid Story Binder from Black Obelisk Software. The author of the program is constantly updating the program, and on the forum there are almost never any talk of bugs. The manual is somewhat poor / "unpedagogic", and support is via the forum, but as one can see on the forum, the author is answering many questions a day, so please don't ask this IT-illiterate (me) how it works (though I can tell that it has music playlists!).

The program: Liquid Story Binder at
The asking price: $45.95 once (from Plimus) + 'Order CD' option
