Assuming all drivers are up to date,
Might it be related to a 4k monitor on less than 60Hz refresh? That usually only gives display-lag, not Windows-lag, but it might be of influence :huh:

Do you have the Logitech mouse software installed? It might help to uninstall that (with reboot after), as it has repeatedly caused issues like you mention, in the past.

Also some antivirus software (I'm looking at you Avast >:() can cause 'lagginess' when dragging Windows around.

Living Room / Re: How is this old interface called?
« on: November 06, 2019, 12:56 AM »
How can we automate them and can we inject data into them by-passing their tedious interface?
You can try to feed the application using my WinSendKeys tool.
It will probably take some trial and error, but as it mimics keyboard entry pretty well, it should work. Be sure to have a look at the delay options (f.e. between characters sent) to fix issues when characters are missing on input, as some DOS type programs have their own keyboard input routines that can be a bit finicky.

General Software Discussion / Re: Best app to learn SQL on
« on: November 05, 2019, 01:13 AM »
I understood that the various implementations all had distinct dialects so I guess I was looking for something reasonably generic to get me started
Well, if you need a good standards-compliant SQL, then PostgreSQL is a good candidate. It's very well documented, supported, and as much Open Source as it gets. Find it here: PostgreSQL.org
I'm not too thrilled with the currently provided tools to manage it, though, they're pretty darn slow, last time I used that (been a while), but it gets the job done.

About Apache configuration:
AFAICS, you should start reading (and some experimenting) on this Apache wiki page about DirectoryListings and how to configure that. I have no LAMP/WAMP installation available, so am unable to provide more detailed pointers, sorry.

About the .style.css file needing to be copied into each directory:
This is caused by this line in .index.php:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="./.style.css">
It points to that file in the current directory ( ./ in front of the filename is a relative location).

By placing the .style.css file into a specific directory like directorystyle in the root of your website, and changing the above line into:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/directorystyle/.style.css">
you are addressing the file at it's absolute location, and has to be stored only once at the server.
Renaming the file and moving it to the default styles directory is also an option, ofcourse.

The period as the first character of the filename makes the file invisible on *nix OS's, and it can be omitted if the file is moved out of the directories that are visible to the enduser. The name used in .index.php has to be adjusted accordingly, as is to be expected ;)
The same goes for the .index.php file, after you have moved it out of the visible directories using the first pointer in this post.

Any chance you can share those index.php and style.css files to see if a fix might actually be possible in the index.php file?

6
I'm not an expert on Apache, but if al else fails, you could create logical links to the 2 files in each subfolder, avoiding duplicate files, and keeping a single point of maintenance.

Living Room / CafePress security incident 2019-02-19
« on: September 25, 2019, 01:43 PM »
Today, September 25th, 2019, I received an e-mail from CafePress, the supplier of, among other stuff, the NANY mugs, stating they have had a security incident on February 19th, 2019, where customer names, addresses, e-mail addresses and account-passwords have been stolen from a database. It appears they first published this story on September 5th, 2019.
I took a screenshot from their website where the whole story is explained for as far as they know.

You know about MiniCap, intended as the command-line 'add-on' for ScreenshotCaptor?

Using the -capturescreen and -exit arguments, besides -save to specify the filenaming scheme, should do the trick.

12
It is so great to have alternative mug designs, love it :Thmbsup:

Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor from Visual Basic?
« on: September 03, 2019, 01:08 PM »
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:
https://www.donation...popular-apps/minicap
You suggested MiniCap before, wouldn't that be a quicker start&capture than the full ScreenshotCaptor executable?

14
What do you have in place for your current website (OS, webserver/software, database) ?

15
I'm under the impression that this anti-spam measure is really working as intended :Thmbsup:

I just hope the extra administrative load isn't too much of a burden for boardadmins... ;)

Screenshot Captor / Re: Standalone screenshot window
« on: August 19, 2019, 02:28 PM »
Wouldn't it be much easier to use the hotkey for grabbing the active Window? Because that's what it sounds to me what you want to achieve... :huh:

17
Other forums have this as a standard feature that only needs to be enabled, or as a plugin. I can only assume SMF has this too. (my main experience is with phpbb though...)

I'm all in favor of this plan (I've reported quite a number of (possible) spammers the last couple of months, often several (3-4) hours after they posted :huh:), and I have the impression the automated spamfilters haven't been as effective as before :o

General Software Discussion / Re: SCREENSHOT CAPTOR VERSION 4
« on: July 25, 2019, 01:38 PM »
Well, you might want to check the Preferences page 'Post Capture Options' to have the Copy to clipboard option set to 'Image bitmap' (not sure what the default is, I set it longtime ago)

(Other settings are probably changed by me too, so don't take them as advice :))

Do users on all computers login using a domain account or only you from your computer?

20
Is there possibly a wifi-repeater active, still re-publishing the now no longer available SSID?

21
A tiny bit of googling brought me these links:

And your relation/connection* to these products is...?

Living Room / Re: Windows 7 always slow after idle
« on: June 13, 2019, 01:26 AM »
Did you install Windows 7 anew, or updated the existing installation from your previous hardware setup? That situation is known to sometimes (often?) cause undetermined trouble because of unneeded hardware drivers clashing with useful drivers.

Living Room / Re: Windows 7 always slow after idle
« on: June 12, 2019, 01:48 PM »
Besides that, the symptoms are not those of a virus.
Apologies, that's not what I was suggesting.
Most current AV systems are more like heavy duty system-intruders, resulting in unpredictable slowdowns, irregular fan-spinups, cause occasional high disk-activity, and stuff like that, including the symptoms you are describing. The Microsoft offerings with Windows 7 and 10 seem to be the most performance-friendly incarnations in AV-land.

All (hardware-)drivers are up to date (no beta stuff etc.), I presume? (You didn't answer that... :-\)

What AV are you using?
Are all drivers up to date (preferrably WHQL revisions)?
