N.A.N.Y. 2021 / Re: Welcome to NANY 2021

I was the ideas man and the design.
Ah, yes, so being actively involved is the criterion; that does make sense :Thmbsup:

I dunno if it even counts as software - it's just javascript/NODE.JS lol
Well, independent of what anyone's opinion is of js code, it's still code, so it should be counted in.

The quality also isn't a measure of qualification ;D, it's about the effort and willingness to participate in NANY 8)

Great suggestion, I'd really like to have that in SC too  :Thmbsup:

* Stephen66515 wonders if his CodyBot (Discord Bot for the DC sevrer) counts as a NANY  :huh: :huh:
If it's software that, in majority, you made, then I'd say yes :Thmbsup:

It is possible that the OP checked the option 'Hide tray icon completely', but as the rest of the caption says, that's not recommended, so this option should better be unchecked.

This option is on the 'Miscellaneous Tweaks' preferences page.

The base folder for file saving can be set at the 'Saving and Loading files' page.
I think you can set the 'Auto Move Older Screenshots' option ('Saving and Loading files' page) in a pattern like yours, but the files would only be moved there after (at least) 1 day. The pattern would be something like:
I'm not sure if the \ could be part of that directory name, didn't try that, as I don't want to mess up my own archive.

On the 'File Naming' page you'd change the 'Default New File Name' to:
and the 'Custom Date Format' to:

And you really should change the 'Default Image File Format' to PNG (on the 'Image File Format' page), as that's way better suited for screenshots than JPG, as .png file compression is lossless while .jpg looses quality during the save. While that usually doesn't really matter for photos, it does matter for, relatively low-resolution, screenshots.

...I hadn't wanted to do that to save RAM but I am about to double my RAM from 16 to 32 so that should take care of that. 
If you are going from 16 MB to 32 MB that would make sense, but having anything from 4 GB and up in your PC, as any PC younger than 10 years would most likely have, then having ScreenshotCaptor resident shouldn't make any difference in day to day use.  ;D

I also notice that it wants to open best and fastest from the little hidden icon box in the right end of the taskbar.  Pinning it to the taskbar and using that as a way to open it and even using the shortcut on the desktop is way slower for some reason.
Well, not to spoil your discovery, but that is the way it was designed to work. Either by activating a capture mode from the tray icon, or by hitting a configured hotkey and start capturing... :-[

Is ScreenshotCaptor referencing a network or USB attached drive anywhere? As in storing your screenshots? That doesn't help the startup speed, as SC tries to populate/refresh the list of recent images, and that type of drive tends to give slow access when first used since some time has passed.
And adding the screenshot directory to your AV exclusions list can give a speed improvement as well.

Actually, I've had teams, skype, and zoom up at the same time. ...
Yup, here too, (well, not Zoom, but Teams, Skype and Skype for Business). I'm not that busy that I need to be in multiple calls often ;D

how do i open 2 zoom sessions on one pc? (company pc, zoom is permant open)
I don't think you can open more than 1 zoom session at a time..
Agreed, technically (close to) impossible. How would the software multiplex the videostream between 2 (or more) sessions?
And how would the other party/session know you're talking to them, or to the other session?
It's difficult enough to have multiple conversions at the same time with people in the same room, let alone on the other side of a digital connection...

MS Teams lets you switch to another call, but it then puts your first call on hold, just like in a phonecall, and you can resume later, after ending/pausing the second call.

Screenshot Captor / Re: SC - smart screenshot folder
« on: August 01, 2020, 12:38 PM »
monitor OR change a folder, but not both??  Not sure.
When monitoring a folder, it seems to only be able to change the attribute(s) of the files, not of the folder. That is what you would usually want, I guess.
I tried to use the "Open With" action, and set "(if exist "%ParentDir%\*.*" (attrib -h "%ParentDir%") else (attrib +h "%ParentDir%"))" as the Destination Program, but that doesn't seem to work. And also it doesn't trigger if you delete a file from the directory.
Some deeper investigation in the AutoIt source of DropIt could reveal a way to do this (or extend it with a 'run command' action), but that seems a bit much.

It intercepts traffic, finds supported resources locally, and injects them into the environment.
Isn't that what your browser cache is supposed to do? :huh:

The smileys and emojis should all be https.. However the images in people's signatures or links to external websites may be http..
Well, the smileys are https when displayed in a post, but not in the Quick Reply editor. Or the Preview/Full blown message/reply editor. The layout button-icons are https, but not the 'toolbar' of smileys, just above the editor surface.

Some of the smiley buttons of the Quick Reply editor have http url's, while most of the other resources are on https url's. The current browser generations have deemed all http links to be "Not Secure", FWIW.

Hi, Great ...
 How do i add command line etc ? What do i do exactly ? Thanks

Well, according to this guide, it's not possible to start the Photo Viewer directly providing a filename (see step 4 in chapter 2: "Open the Photo Viewer With the Command Prompt"), but if you have configured Windows Photo Viewer as your default program for the image format you have chosen in SC (usually .png), you just enable the checkbox mouser showed above, and add %file% on its own in a blank line of the edit box. Works like a charm here.

Btw, it's not needed to draw attention to a post by writing it all in bold, that's against common internet etiquette, as it sounds like shouting...

And what is stopping you from using Direct Access DOS? It can be found here

You'll need 7-zip to extract the floppy images inside the 7z files. I didn't try to install though, too far past it's sell-by date for me (it was re-packaged in 2010, but the installer files are dated 1993 :o)

It would help if you could describe what specific features of Direct Access appeal the most to you, and what other alternatives you have tried.

As you say, there are many programs that try to solve the display of a menu of applications, so there are probably some features that you dislike, or you would have picked one of the existing offerings already.
F.e., have you tried LaunchBar Commander, as provided in the Software section of this site?

General Software Discussion / Re: Custom Screenshot/OCR software
« on: June 20, 2020, 08:56 AM »
That kind of software already exists, as is to be expected:

And there is of course Screenshot Captor that allows you to automate the process, but you'll need to add some OCR software (free or paid, it should support command-line conversion, but most do) to your system, and configure it in SC to run after taking a screenshot.

Output format(s) is heavily dependent on what the OCR software supports.

That first regex that I put in works on that phrase just fine.
I fully agree, but as the OP has trouble reading (or understanding?) replies to his questions, I sort of tried to blow him off his socks, as all previous replies probably were too 'easy' :huh:

I didn't include the space in the regex
Well, there has to be some separator between any content and the e-mail address, and that's most likely a space.

OK so what is the regex to capture the piece of text that starts with space and ends with the end of the line and can contain any character?

That would look like this:
What this does is:
.* : Any character
\s+ : white-space, 1 or more consecutive
(  : start group
\S+  : not white-space, 1 or more consecutive
)  : end group
$  : end of line marker

You will have to get the group 1 value for your result, input like this:
a piece of text at the end of the line
will give you the word 'line' as a result

If you are still searching for your original request, I took the first regex from, dropped it in the regex tester, fixed the issues it reported (escape a few slashes because of the PCRE regex engine), and wrapped it with the construction I just showed here, and came up with this:
If you feed that this text:
test for email address with plain text prefix
The only group that's there produces '[email protected]' as a result.

Did I complete your assignment with this? ;)

RAM usage is pretty bad, yes, but CPU not so much. Right now the CPU is at 10%, and even when it's a bit higher I can live with that.
I've got other stuff running besides my browsers, and I want max available of my CPU and memory to go there, the browser is only a view on my working environment, not 'the only thing in the world' ;D

First thing I'd do is switch to Firefox, when having that many tabs open in a browser, Chrome isn't really good at that, consuming lots of memory and CPU when the tab-count goes up. I'm running one of my Firefox instances with 300 tabs, without trouble, but I do turn off that computer at the end of my workday.

I try to never touch the pagefile size, at least not since the Windows 2000 days, back in the Windows NT 4.0 days it seemed to make sense to tune it, but after that it usually got worst whatever way I tuned it away from the Windows optimal/automatic settings. Theoretically, Windows running on a 16 GB system should be able to do without any pagefile, but I've found that Windows can get really instable that way, so that's IMHO a good reason not to touch it.

General Software Discussion / Re: Chrome tab height bug?
« on: June 07, 2020, 06:41 AM »
The issue still sometimes shows up here. I'm really surprised that this thread didn't get a single reply. Am I the only one seeing this? :)
Well, I initially read your post but didn't recognize the issue, Chrome is only my third browser (Firefox GA and Firefox DEV are my 2 main browsers... browser-based application development and testing on the same domain but different accounts => 2 browsers is the easiest solution).
And on top of that, even if it happened, I probably wouldn't have noticed... :-[
