Norton is much too bloated for my tastes.. these days most of the big antivirus tools are. I'd uninstall it.  Malwarebytes seems better if you pay for it, though it does pop up messages if you don't.  These days windows built in antivirus seems sufficient so you don't need those 3rd party tools annoying you -- i'd just uninstall them.

Thanks for posting this solution and others for posting reports that it works -- I'll have to remember this thread if others have problems.  :up:

Screenshot Captor / Re: shortcut keys not working
« on: June 13, 2021, 06:14 AM »
Try customizing some of the hotkeys in SC -- do they work?
The most likely culprit is another program grabbing those hotkeys.  For example Microsoft's OneDrive application is the most notorious one for grabbing PrtScr key without warning.

It was really fun to be involved in the feedback loop but my feedback to ayryq must have been very frustrating for him as my comments were like "make it sadder and also happier" or "Can you make the drums sound more like shh shshshts sksksksk".. :)
But somehow it kept getting better.
The only difficult thing for me was each new version had something new i liked and something from the previous one that i missed losing.. Too bad it wasn't a 10 minute song..

Ayryq might agree that the hardest part was getting it all to fit in EXACTLY 22 seconds with a suitably paced start and end...

My approach has generally been as follows: MS will force an update if it's a very important security update, so i don't worry about updating the minute a new update comes out.
After an update has been out for a week or so I assume any catastrophic kinks have been worked out and let it update.
If you have concerns, I think maybe addressing them by doing a full drive image backup regularly and before major updates is the best way to address that, and skip worrying about updates.

Again, I think of it this way -- of all the things that can go wrong on the pc, windows updates are at the very bottom of the list below a hardware failure and a virus.  Having a good backup system in place addresses everything at once.

ayryq has made something amazing!

Here's two versions, which are similar but different, and both of which I love:

Which one is your favorite?

zridling  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I would watch a channel where you critiqued and made fun of these videos!

ayryq is making great progress! very exciting.

I find it kind of infuriating that this was enabled by default.  And how inconvenient it is to disable.

v4.41.0 - May 31, 2021
  • [BugFix] Resize dialog had controls off screen on windows setups with non 100% text size.
  • [BugFix] Added code to move window on screen if it was last used on a setup where a monitor has been disconnected.
  • [BugFix] Metadata in image files could contain extraneous image after viewing image taken with camera or containing other unusual meta data.
  • [Improvement] New option to skip sending home keys on start of scrolling window capture (see Misc. Options tab).
  • [Improvement] New option to open newly captured images in default image viewer (see Post-capture options tab).
  • [Improvement] File multi-line metadata comments now separated by \r\n instead of just \n.
  • [Improvement] Copying bitmap of screenshot to clipboard does not put unnecessary data on clipboard.
  • [Improvement] New option to disable color-change of tray icon during captures.

22s is the ideal time from my perspective, since that's how long the video of the intro lasts and i don't think i want to go any longer in the future.
I can imagine in the future trying to aim for a shorter intro video like 15 seconds.  And I can tweak video length down a bit.  But for now 22 seconds.

ill find it for you.. or happy to purchase it if there is a good place to get it.
It's "The Odd Couple" by Neal Hefti.

And remember I only need (can only use) about 22 seconds worth.

But obviously none capture the emotional attachment I have to the Odd Couple theme, so I'd still love someone making a cover of that, or something inspired by it, that I could use.
Or just having some variety of music by friends that I could swap around would be fun..

Here's two versions with music i have license to use.

One that has a similar jazzy feel:

And one completely different and not a great match, but maybe fun for variety and with music by a friends cousin:

It definitely works on Windows 10 -- I'm using it here. But I can't remember how I installed and ran it
According to options dialog I'm using TCLOCK Redux x64 2.4.4. build 492 from

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: How to change folder in CHS
« on: May 24, 2021, 05:08 AM »
It sounds like you did things right - edit ConfigDir.ini file to point to a different directory.  Make sure you remove the // characters at the start of the line saying its a comment line to ignore it.
Alternatively, as tomos says, the portable download starts out with a ConfigDir file that says to store in the current directory that you launch from.

Go to the Help ->About menu item, it will show the version.

Living Room / Re: freenode exodus
« on: May 20, 2021, 08:21 PM »
In any event, the details don't matter all that much I think, freenode before - libera now; this sort of thing happens from time to time. The positive thing about all this is that it illustrates how resilient irc is to a single corporate entity controlling everything. Sponsors who run servers, can just as easily run their servers connected to a different network. Users with channels can just as easily chat on another network. If anything, the whole ordeal demonstrates how decentralization is nice; if this were discord or slack or something, you'd have to either live with the new management and their policies or have nothing.

excellent points.

Im getting mostly errors last few times i've tried to use yaydl:
"Fetching from YouTube.
Error: EOF while parsing a value at line 1 column 0"

I'm using the original for now.. at some considerable risk that I'll have to take those videos down and re-upload them.. I need a custom version asap!

I hear ya.  I do worry about hard drive temperatures.  One thing you could do is install one of the programs that monitors hard drive temperatures in the background, and will show them in the system tray and show an alert if they rise above a certain temperature.  There are some good free and paid apps that do that.

The top HD is a 2TB HD -- the solution that jumps out to me is to replace it (and any other HD of similar size) with an SSD.  Less heat, much faster, takes up less space.

Seems like a good idea for a coding snack.

I can certainly add pastefromfile function easily enough.  :up:
