N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: [N.A.N.Y. 2019] - Process Lister [status=done]

@KodeZwerg:
Question: Should I include a min/max limiter? Like not scaling lower than 50% (if you downscale) or 500% (for upscale)
(100% is always my default 96dpi 1:1 original interface)
Well, upper/lower control limits would seem to be appropriate. You don't really want them to go to infinity, I presume.

@KodeZwerg:
The first thing that i would come up with would be something like a slider, as maby seen on some mediaplayers, if you hover over slider (timeline in player) you jump back-/forward, or volume up/down.
Is that what you mean? I can set scaling to any percentage decimal value 0%-unlimited (idk maximum)
Well, I was thinking in terms of the variable mousewheel zoom - as per the example suggested ("try to zoom in/out using Ctrl+mousewheel on the Windows Desktop.").
Ergonomically, a slider might not be granular enough, making it "jumpy" and a PITA to use.

The other things were just me putting some ideas up - I figured they might be useful.
I actually had assumed (incorrectly, it seems) that you were probably heading in the direction of building a different kind of mousetrap to the ProcessHacker etc.
Given that that is apparently not your intention, had you considered contributing your extra column idea to the ProcessHacker project at https://processhacker.sourceforge.io/  ?

@4wd:
I found it just stopped doing it for some reason, whether it was an update or something I installed who knows.
Ruddy heck. I'd speculate that the cause was likely to be the Registry settings had been zapped (changed/deleted) by a Windows update.
Pity. That was a nifty fix too.    :Thmbsup:
What to do? Presumably reinstall as at 4wd Reply #1 on: 2018-10-17, 22:06:42 »?

You'd never know if/when it had been zapped again though. Might need to do that reinstall each time prior to running the thing (or as a default part of running it) every time, just in case. Belts-and-braces.

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: [N.A.N.Y. 2019] - Process Lister [status=done]

@KodeZwerg:
Thankyou.
...Kind of a challenge to proof that scaling (playing with DPI/PPI) works since you mentioned that it aint good :-]  ...
Now that's rather interesting. What it seems to imply is that scaling at the OS level may be broken somehow.
Tell me:
  • Instead of stepped scaling (e.g., at doubled or quadrupled steps), are you able to make the scaling gradual and incrementally variable between lower and upper limits, through rolling the mousewheel? (Zoom in, zoom out.)
  • If you can do that, can you apply it to work on any open window in other applications? (For an interesting example, try to zoom in/out using Ctrl+mousewheel on the Windows Desktop.)

On another subject, if you can display the "new" information re Process Creation time, could you also display columns which provide:
  • (a) the current Running Time for currently running processes - i.e., the dynamic calculated result of current time minus Process Creation time?
  • (b) the total running time of historical processes (in this session) which had earlier started and now have stopped?
That could be quite useful information.

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: [N.A.N.Y. 2019] - Process Lister - Requirements?
« on: October 23, 2018, 07:57 PM »
@KodeZwerg:
For me, the double-sized print is very legible - a bit too big maybe - and the quad-sized print is humungous, but there would probably be many people with severe visual impairment who could be glad to have that size and who might otherwise usually have to rely on the Windows Magnifier tool.

In terms of providing a process/task listing though, ProcessLister would seem to fall well behind a pack of some already-established and serious contenders - e.g., including:
  • Windows TaskManager,
  • SysInternals ProcessExplorer
  • Wn Jia Liu's ProcessHacker
- the latter is the one I prefer to use as it best meets my peculiar ergonomic needs as well as my user requirements for a process/task manager.

And that is the point, really - i.e., what are one's user requirements?
From training in systems analysis, I would usually tag user business requirements in a systematic manner, using the ABC prioritisation method, where:
  • A = Mandatory (Urgent and Important)
  • B = Highly desirable (Important, but NOT Urgent)
  • C = Nice-to-have (Neither Important NOR Urgent)
(Anything outside of these 3 classes is purely imaginary and not related to an operational  business need/requirement per se.)

I don't really have a defined set of "business/user requirements" for ProcessLister per se, but if I did, then it would match the user requirements that I might have and which had been met/exceeded by ProcessHacker. Though I use the thing on a daily basis and it is an invaluable tool for monitoring and managing the operation of the Windows system, it is still just a utility - a useful tool - and I do not consider it worthwhile to sit down and define/document those requirements. I have found by trialling the above tools that ProcessHacker seems to be the most useful tool for my peculiar purposes, but someone else might have different requirements/purposes, so it might not be so useful to those people - i.e., YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).

By the way, because PIM (Personal Information Management) is a very important matter for me in my personal and work life, I have defined and documented my requirements - e.g., in evaluating CHS (Clipboard Help and Spell) I applied the above method:
@mouser - by the way, there is still this: User Requirements for CHS

It could be used to save repetition by different/new CHS users. I put quite a bit of effort into that. Have not updated it in ages as no-one seemed interested. I think I left it as public and editable.
- which has apparently caused some readers to experience such traumatic mind-expansion and neural damage that it induces a temporary state of profound sleep from which the reader awakens with a complete loss of memory of ever having seen it in the first place.

Cross-posted her for information/relevance, from another discussion thread on the DC forum:
@phillie08:
Yes, the simple explanation would seem to be that the cached thumbnails that are of concern to you - and which do not contain the latest artefacts in the original image and that were added to that image - could probably be of an earlier version of the image. One can only suppose as to why the cached thumbnail was not updated.

Those thumbnails will have been created by the Windows OS and stored in a database/cache - which is an accumulator and will contain thumbnails of since-deleted/changed image files.
It is thus generally a good housekeeping practice to periodically run cleanmgr.exe (in Admininstrator mode and set to to clean up system files). When doing this, ensure that there is a tick against the "Thumbnails" item. For example:

24_412x509_F576AFBA.png
The example screenshot above shows 26.0MB of Thumbnails - which is not much really and is usually larger (I had already not long ago run cleanmgr.exe before taking this screenshot).
It can be educational to search the system with Everything for files with "thumb  .db" (with the embedded space). That will identify all the Thumbnail-related files that comprise the 26.0MB  - in my case, they are mostly/all in:
C:\Users\[UserID]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\

Those files will have names with "thumbcache" in them - e.g. "thumbcache_768.db".

An Everything search will also be able to show you where all the "Thumb" and "Thumb  .db' named files are, so that you can delete them as necessary. Generally, system "Thumbs.db" files are to be found in all those directories where images are stored. They are Windows OS system files (caches), but it doesn't hurt to periodically sweep them up in a housekeeping run - e.g., using Everything to identify them prior to deletion - since they are accumulators and could contain thumbnails of since-deleted/changed image files (hence the problem discussed here), so that, over time, they could become bloated with useless garbage. The Windows OS will recreate anew the deleted thumbnail cache - with up-to-date thumbnails - as and when it is forced to open those image files again for any purpose.

If you use third party image file managers - e.g., (say) Picasa3 - then, from experience, you will generally find that they create and update their own peculiar thumbnail caches/databases. For example, in my case, Picasa3 builds several thumbnail and preview database files (caches) that are approx 2GB in size.    :o

So, in my case, I would therefore tend to leave well enough alone there, since Picasa3 will have done a lot of work to deliberately build those caches, rather than rely on the Windows OS thumbnail caching system. So far, Picasa3 never seems to have displayed for me the outdated cached thumbnail problem discussed here. I suspect that the Picasa3 cache build and maintenance processes will have been designed for optimum performance (efficiency and speed) - i.e., with garbage removed periodically by Picasa3 systematically updating the thumbnails cache after an image is deleted/changed.

Thanks! Please don't feel you have to fix it to meet my requirements, but I shall be interested in what you come up with.

@KodeZwerg: Thanks for this.
My feedback: ergonomically, it's unusable for my purposes as the font size is kinda microscopic. I'm somewhat vision impaired - I'd need a magnifier to read the printed characters in the ProcessLister GUI.

One of the reasons I lurve @mouser's excellent CHS (Clipboard Help and Spell) is that all the GUI display fonts have adjustable settings for type, size and colour, and background colour. That makes CHS eminently usable from my perspective - though the CHS option settings panels have fonts that are as bad, if not worse, than those in the ProcessLister GUI (grumble, grumble).
Refer: Improving the ergonomic readability on laptop screen displays - Tips and Tricks.

By the way, ProcessHacker similarly has options to fully adjust the fonts in the GUI - makes it a joy to use, for me.

I saw this headline today on a Reuters news post:
Saudi Arabia calls Khashoggi killing 'grave mistake', says prince not aware.

(I thought they couldn't find poor Khashoggi's remains...   :o   )
Editors seem to enjoy making puns, but doubly so when it's inadvertently made by the news itself.
For example:
That reminds me of a daily Telegraph news item I read years ago. It was on page 3 I think, which was where they used to put the odd and curious bits of world news that didn't warrant page 1 or 2.
This news item was only worth about ¾" of a column. Apparently police were seeking but had not yet found, a masked man who was in the habit of breaking into single bed rooms in some college's girls' dormitory block late at night. He would gag and bind the unlucky occupant and subject her to an enema, and then leave.    :o

The news item bore the heading Public enema No.1.

NB: This might only work for HP laptops (I don't know), but that needs to be verified, one way or the other.

Some time back, I bought a rather nice HP Pavilion-15 (AKA "Star Trek" model) at a NZ$1,000 bargain discount in a closing-down bankruptcy sale in a branch of the bankrupt Australian company Dick Smith. I had had my eye on the laptop price - it was an as-new display model - for several weeks as the price kept being further and further discounted each week - as the countdown to closure proceeded. I felt very fortunate that no-one else had spotted this bargain and snapped it up before me.
The laptop has:
CPU:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50GHz
GPU: (integrated 2 GPUs)
  • Intel HD Graphics 520
  • NVIDIA GeForce 940M

Normally, the laptop runs dead quiet - I mean, really quiet, even when under load and when SpeedFan says the CPUs are getting hot. This surprised me as the CPU is an Intel I7 and my experience with those had been that they tend to run hot and keep the fan busy on a laptop.

However, the other day, after a minor (if there is such a thing) Win10 update, I noticed that I could hear the laptop's fan whining as though it was working hard. Hunting around with Process Hacker for which processes were using lots of CPU, I couldn't see anything significant. Then I noticed that the little CoolSense icon was not displayed in the Systray (I have Systray set to display all icons of processes running, by default).
I should explain here that:
CoolSense is a program that came with the HP laptop in the HP Service Pack sp67743 (HP CoolSense v2.2). The proggie is dated 2015, but that version remains the latest/current version in that Service Pack as at 2018-10-21.
It can be downloaded from here
This is the CoolSense pop-up toggle switch when the icon in the Systray is  mouse-clicked:
03_186x166_902724FB.png
So, I went through the following steps to FIX things:
  • 1. Investigate: On examining the CoolSense program directory:
       C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP CoolSense
     - I saw that the CoolSense.exe file was missing.

  • 2. Re-instate .exe: So I extracted it from sp67743.exe and restored it to the program directory, leaving a backup duplicate there as well, named CoolSenseBAK.exe.

  • 3. Check .ini file: I also checked the CoolSense.ini file and changed it to read:
      [default]
      autostart=on
      mode=on
      ____________
    (These had been set to OFF)
     - and made a copy of that called CoolSense.ini.bak2018-10-21

  • 4. Paranoia check: Just-in-case, I checked that the files and their backups had the same checksum.     :o

  • 5. Run: Then I started CoolSense.exe and after about 10 seconds, the whining fan went quiet and has stayed quiet since.

Out of interest, I searched the HP forums for problems with CoolSense. Interestingly, other users reported that (surprise, surprise) CoolSense had stopped working after a Windows update, and because some of those users didn't have the expertise to investigate as I did (see above steps), they assumed/thought that CoolSense was at fault (i.e., had failed) - though clearly that was not true in the case described above.

I thought I'd post this here in the hope that it might be useful to other DCF members.
I intend to check out/test whether CoolSense will run satisfactorily on non-HP laptops, but at the moment I don't know of any reason why it should not. I'll post my results here, anyway.
If any DCF member beats me to it, please post your results in the comments below.

...Not really, it's been proven that people very rarely bother to use a forum search engine prior to just firing off a new thread. ...
I was unaware that this was "proven", but it certainly looks that way - judging from what I've seen, anyway. However, even of you used (say) a site: search (as opposed to the cruddy internal search tool), finding and consolidating relevant/related material in the discussion threads is still likely to be an uphill battle and somewhat hit-or-miss.

DCF is often a veritable mine of useful information, with stuff to be found on various subject categories in DCF discussion threads, but a lot of it seems to be buried in or scattered across threads broken into multiple micro-sub-categories. Occasionally, I try to pull these bits and pieces together into specific higher-level category threads to provide a sort of indexed experiential knowledge-point on a specific subject category that I am interested in. The trouble there is that I am the sole author/editor of the index I created, and - as things stand - it can't be edited in a shared or collaborative fashion by other DCF members. This is a spotty, unreliable and inefficient way of accumulating/curating a knowledge base category.
Ideally, we would use a Wiki for those...    :o

These could be useful:
Not sure if you will have seen these - possibly useful - discussions on DCF:

Also, if not already done, check out these potentially useful references: (some referred to in the links above)

My experience of modifying the inbuilt Windows system colours, fonts, etc. for people with macular degeneration is that such methods are constrained by being a bit complicated and are not entirely successful.
The built in "Ease of Access" mods in Windows, designed for visually-impaired users, also seem a bit limited.
If a web-based email access were used instead of the Windows Live Mail desktop program, then NoSquint could be ideal as its settings are pretty flexible and can be set for a given website.

If the Windows Magnifier (press Win and + keys) is displaying a black lens or screen window, then the likely cause is the NVIDIA graphics driver. The fix is to force the magnify.exe proggie to work with the standard GPU - not the NVIDIA GPU.

Windows 10 Magnifier Lens Window is Black

By BGGRIT on 2015-08-13
I have set up my magnifier (size, shape, magnification, and to auto start), but the lens window will randomly turn black (not the entire screen just the lens window).  Makes it difficult to navigate with my vision issues.

I am by no means an expert on Windows 10, but I can let you know how I resolved the problem on my own PC. My PC has an nVidia graphics card which works just fine with all applications with the exception of Magnifier.

  • Ensure nVidia Control Panel is installed and enter the control panel via a right click on the desktop screen, then select the nVidia Control Panel option in the context menu.
  • On the left side of the application which is open, there is the option for manage 3D settings. Select this option. I know you probably aren't bothered by 3D anything - it's just where the settings are.
  • On the right side of the screen select the 'Program Settings' tab.
  • If the drop down selector in part 1 does not contain magnifier (and it probably won't,) click the 'Add' button and then the 'Browse' button.
  • Navigate to c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe and double click on it. Doing this will add it to list.
  • Choose c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe from the list.
  • In part 2 choose integrated graphics from the drop down.
  • Click the Apply button.

Living Room / Re: My first excel macro
« on: October 09, 2018, 05:54 PM »
At the risk of repeating myself:
@Stephen66515: "Ethics" is usually more about maintaining moral principles in behaviour and business. It would seem to be just plain rudeness/bad manners to tell people to "google it" or "RTFM", and my principles prevent me from being rude to others.
After years of lecturing, consulting and generally trying to maintain a politely helpful and positive approach to people's questions (including being a volunteer on aardvark), I eventually decided on three (sorry, four) basic rules:
Rule 1: that there is no limit to our ignorance (including mine), and I should accept that;
Rule 2: to limit the contribution of my cognitive surplus to such people and their infinite ignorance/questions, by encouraging them to take more responsibility for seeking out/discovering their own answers.
Rule 3: that people generally seem to have little respect for and to have a limited capacity to internalise answers/knowledge which have come too easily to them, so generally avoid giving them any answers.
Rule 4: in any event, avoid "telling them the answer" or pushing my opinion forwards without substantiation in theory, experience and good practice (this takes work to communicate).

When I have strayed from these rules, I have usually regretted it (I think it has happened once in the DC forum).

Therefore, rather than tell people to "google it" or "RTFM", IF I decide to assist them at all, then - and even if I think that I know the answer already - I nowadays usually google it, or check Wikipedia (say) or RTFM for them, and then send them the results or source links, with the suggestion that  they could probably get even more useful information if they hunted around a bit more themselves or played about with the google search string. This is just helping people to help themselves.

...RTFM is never an acceptable answer to any question. Because it is not an answer at all. It's just a thinly disguised way of telling someone to get lost. ...
...Consider: It only takes a few seconds to type RTFM and hit the enter key. But it takes exactly zero work to ignore something completely and go elsewhere. Ideally where you do have something real to contribute.

@vincitygialam: Hmm. Lintalist might be useful here. It's a pretty powerful tool based on AHK (Autohotkey) and has a few handy plugins. I suggest you consider trying it out. (The link has instructional videos.)

Not sure whether it would necessarily meet all your requirements, but, on the other hand, though we usually tend to think that we know what our requirements are, it is often the case that we might change/develop our requirements after having had a suck-it-and-see using some new tool. That's because trying out new tools can help to expand our awareness of what is possible and what we would've liked to have had the ability to do had we known that the potential to do that thing existed in the first place - e.g., like discovering that MS OneNote can search for decipherable words/phrases in an audio file and point to where (how many minutes/seconds) that bit of audio is in the file. ("Wait. It can do that?").

Though I have been aware of Lintalist for years, I haven't really needed to use the extensive text-handling functionality that it provides, as I tend to use my own AHK scripts to meet my simple requirements. However, Lintalist seems to support plain text and formatted text (HTML, Markdown, RTF, Image), so I would probably use it if I needed that capability.

The seeds of this "failure" were probably germinating and detectable in the Google Wave Developer Preview at the Google I-O 2009 presentation.
I recall reporting that I had analysed the transcript of that presentation and counted all the instances of the signature meaningless BS/buzzwords in it and it didn't look good:
In the transcript there are a number of what I refer to as BS/buzzwords, clichés and alarm triggers, including, for example:
Word/cliché
excited
unbelievable
great
cool
[laughs]
amazing
No. of occurrences
      6
      2
      5
    10
    24
      5

Google were presumably paying exceedingly good money to the actors responsible for that abortive software development and for making that empty presentation. The audience obligingly applauded on queue.
It was déjà vu for me and the actors were history - apparently all gone.
But, for that to happen at all in the first place, you arguably really needed to have been making/tolerating serial execution errors somewhere upstream. That - to my mind - would have been representative of some kind of endemic corporate systemic failure. Never mind the quality, feel the width. I think that's often likely to be a sign of out-and-out desperation.
