There is a transparent background cody on site, and one of him standing on a keyboard.. I'll find.  All drawn by the awesome nick pearson (nudone).

Was just going to say that there's been some news about this on the web today saying exactly what Jill posted.. A very unusual thing created by a windows 10 update..

More articles:

Surely they'll have it fixed soon.


I actually have a minor update as of July 29 ready but I've put off uploading it until I add a few more features..
Give me some more feature ideas or bugs to fix so I can have an excuse to publish the new version! ;)

Looks nice!
Maybe let users add new items (shortcuts) to a "Custom" menu?

Welcome to the site, leftdisconnected  :Thmbsup:

Your suggestions and reasoning are very reasonable.  :up:

For installers, I highly encourage signing with a digital certificate; and with executables it makes a difference in how Windows displays them, and can definitely make people feel safer using them.

Your point about "It might be useful to list this hash in the download area on your official website, but this can convey false verification if a website is hacked (hackers may change the displayed hash to match their infected package)." is valid; for small scale websites that's pretty darn unlikely though.  And one good alternative solution would be to post a hash value on a different server (like this forum), from the one hosting the file.  Whether it's worth the hassle is another matter.. It does at least increase the likelyhood that someone would discover a tampered file sooner rather than later, which is always good.

For those of you who spend time sketching/painting in digital medium, I'm curious what tools, both hardware and software, you find the most enjoyable to use?
Anyone use a drawing tablet? A fancy screen with pressure sensitive pen etc?

I ask because I inherited an older cintiq21 21 inch monitor tablet from my father -- you draw on the screen with a pressure sensitive pen.  It's old but very cool.. However it's a beast to move around and requires a computer to make it work.  I'm thinking a smaller standalone touch screen tablet with pressure pen support would be so much more convenient, if not quite as good an experience when actually sketching.

Love it  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Looks like folks will be able to choose an alternate design mug this year.

Living Room / Re: For those with a CrashPlan...
« on: September 06, 2019, 05:02 PM »
I have to walk away from SpiderOak.. It's making me miserable.. Once it hit the point where it thought all of my allocated 400gb was used up, it's basically entered a hellish state where it doesn't care what I try to remove from the backup, it doesn't change anything.  I'm done.

So for the second day I'm sitting here listening to my (sata) hard disk drive make that sound that it's being used -- sounds a bit like ticking, etc.  And it's going on for hours.

But I can't figure out what process could be doing it.. The standard ctrl+alt+del process lister doesn't seem to shed any light..

Anyone use any software that might shed some light on what might be going wild on my disk drive?

I assume it's some windows background process or low level service, but I'd really like to find the culprit.

EDIT: May have been a false alarm.. I banged on the case near the fans for a bit and the sound stopped.. So perhaps it was just a fan rattle that sounded to me just like a hard disk drive seeking sound..  Either that or my banging woke up some snoring creature living in my computer, or convinced my hard drive to stop making a racket.

I may be able to fix this.. Can you do something for me, can you try the normal Screenshot Captor application and do a region capture with this (default shift+PrtScr), and tell me if the same thing happens?

In terms of speed.. I wonder if it's worth adding a way to send a message more directly to the running Screenshot Captor process..

Mouser is capable of generating license keys of all sorts on request..

There are a bunch of 3rd party services that will let you create and gather data.  They charge different prices based on how frequently you need to conduct surveys and how many people will be answering.
They are quite smooth and work well.
These days more and more services like this, which one used to install software for on your own server, are now being handled by specialty websites for a cost.

If the cost makes sense for you then it can save you a ton of hassle to use one of these 3rd party sites, especially if it's just a one-of survey and not a regular thing.

Perhaps the best known and most advertised service is SurveyMonkey:

Some alternatives can be found here:

Invoking Screenshot Captor from the commandline will not create a new instance of Screenshot Captor -- it will instead direct the currently running copy to perform a capture.
So you can invoke it from Visual Basic by launching it with commandline options.

So try from visual basic executing something (with Shell command?) like
C:\Program Files (x86)\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.exe -capture workspace

Yeah grabbing a selected region in SC, when not using "red box capture mode" actually takes a full screen screenshot, and then displays that on the screen for you to do a region select, so it makes sense that it would pop the current full screen game out of full screen mode.

To avoid that you could either just do a full screen capture, telling SC to stay minimized, OR try changing the options to RED BOX capture mode when capturing regions, which might avoid the game popping out of full screen mode (not sure).

Ah I see you posted a follow up that the problem was gone after a restart.. Strange!

Screenshot Captor / Re: Not working anymore in GTA-Game?
« on: August 27, 2019, 02:06 PM »
Strange.  It would be interesting to know if a reboot solved it.  It's possible that an update of the graphics adapter driver has used some new higher speed mode that can't be captured.. Or it's possibly some anti-screenshot code was added to the software..
Any other thoughts by anyone?

In the Screenshot Captor help file you'll find a section on Commandline use and options.

But you might also check out the littler brother of Screenshot Captor called MiniCap, which is a smaller commandline tool designed to be invoked from other programs:
