Thunderbird doesn’t have add-ons anymore? Ew.It does, but it's following the Mozilla / Firefox codebase into a new addons architecture so a lot of things you've been using for years have Gone Away or will do so.

(Flashing tooltip)Confirmed for Windows 10 x64 v1809 too, but doesn't happen on my Windows 7 laptop.
Running Windows 10 x64 v1909, I don't have access to another OS to test it on right now.-ConstanceJill (June 25, 2020, 05:45 AM)

Any reports on the latest version?I have nothing useful to offer here except the suggestion that, like Mary Poppins, it must be Practically Perfect In Every Way.-mouser (April 05, 2020, 08:47 PM)
A newer one (early 90's) that I liked was 386Max! A DOS program, it allowed the user to load memory-resident programs and drivers in the unused memory space between the 640k and 1meg area, so that more of the 640k space was available to regular DOS programs. It also allowed easy configuration of the memory above the 1meg mark to allow programs to use Extended and/or Expanded memory.Now that brings back memories. Quarterdeck QEMM/386 and DESQview. All that extra memory and multi-tasking DOS apps too. (Should have mentioned it above when I was reminiscing about the BBS -- DESKview let me run a BBS and use the PC for other things at the same time. Sounds trivial now, but pre-Windows that was kind of revolutionary. Not cheap but once you had it you never, ever wanted to do without it again...-autohost (March 27, 2020, 10:14 AM)
Holy cow that brings back memories. I used it in MCAS Iwakuni, Japan while stationed there in 1988. If you took a few to learn the syntax you could really do things very quickly. Thanks for the memories!WordStar was awesome for touch-typists. You could do everything without moving your hands away from the home keys. Sure, there was function key support too -- later on, anyway -- but anyone who'd learned it properly could bash out documents faster than anyone working on pretty much any other platform.-reynolds_john (March 25, 2020, 12:34 PM)
Lotus 123, the best spread sheet I ever used when working 30+ years ago.I liked CA SuperCalc better -- for what little it's worth. Similar in many ways but SuperCalc had something that was just awesome -- it worked out whether what you were typing was a number, text or a formula and just acted accordingly. So the prefixes you had to type in 123 (or pretty much anything else before or since) to identify what you were entering in a cell -- no need. Lovely.-tomgee88 (March 25, 2020, 10:35 AM)
(Anybody remember Rusty n Edies, FidoNet, and Boardwatch Magazine?)One part of that. I ran a FidoNet BBS right up to the early 2000s -- 2:25/108 -- and may have been among the last phoneline-based systems.-40hz (January 24, 2020, 05:58 PM)
Clipboard Captor would be the name I would choose now.. Perhaps with support for multiple formats it can evolve into Clipboard Captor.....Mm. I can envisage an automagic link to the ScreenshotCaptor image repository, which would help to justify the name change, even if the use is relatively trivial...-mouser (January 30, 2020, 05:05 AM)
Do people really care about supporting formats other than richtext format, like internal application formats?Not really. I don't think.
It sure would be great if you maintained the source format, though.I actually make specific use of the talent of CHS to strip formatting out of heavily formatted pasted text, it's a useful feature to me, so if this is changed, I hope the current behaviour might be left accessible in some way!-djMot (January 15, 2020, 07:26 AM)
I like the idea of a paste with the program asking for variable to replace before pasting.. It wouldn't be very hard to add.. The real question is whether it would be smarter to write it as a built-in function or whether it would be better to have a way for CHS to be told about a standalone exe it should invoke to paste certain formatted clips, and let the 3rd party tool do the prompt for variables followed by replacement and paste..Playing with the existing functionality here, I've built myself a working (if slightly clunky) solution and I think maybe what's there could be refined just slightly.-mouser (January 15, 2020, 02:38 AM)
Are your podcasts common file types like MP3, and if so, do they contain metadata tags?I used to use RenameMaster for something else entirely and had entirely forgotten its existence. And the Bulk Rename thing -- I used that to pull info out of long filenames and get them into an 8.3 format for a gateway process I designed nearly a decade ago, and I'd forgotten about that one too.-rjbull (January 13, 2020, 03:02 PM)
You could use a custom date ('R - Time/Date TextClips' from the Quick menu of CHSIn all my time using CHS, I've never ever used the Quick menu. And while I was hoping for a more general-purpose kind of solution (on the basis that I could probably find lots of other things I could do with a facility to populate and use a variable on the fly) this might very well solve this problem for me -- thanks!-Ath (January 13, 2020, 02:07 PM)
Yes, but only the 32-bit version seems okay. The 64-bit version has a nasty habit of hanging during the loading process.my tools of choice are Serif's DrawPlus for vector graphicsThat's their pre-Affinity one, yes? Are you still happy with it on Win10?-oblivion (January 13, 2020, 08:42 AM)-rjbull (January 13, 2020, 03:43 PM)
Cheaper alternative. It was a 10" tablet for about £40. Has sixteen configurable buttons at the top of the tablet and eight programmable function keys down the side, the stylus came with a collection of spare tips and a stand and, as long as you don't want to use it on an extended desktop across more than one monitor, it's a decent enough choice. Mine is the M1000L -- although I've had it a while and it's probably been superseded by now. As I said, it comes in handy for tracing stuff -- although, now I think of it, I think I bought the transparent layer separately.I have several graphics tablets: [...]10 inch UgeeI've heard of Wacom, but never of Ugee.-oblivion (January 13, 2020, 08:42 AM)-rjbull (January 13, 2020, 03:43 PM)
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?A bit late to this party...
Anyone use a drawing tablet? A fancy screen with pressure sensitive pen etc?-mouser (September 08, 2019, 01:04 AM)
Any last requests?I'm late to the party -- so what's new -- but this is potentially really useful to me.-mouser (December 08, 2019, 02:01 AM)
