Loooong story



  •  Screen shot of an installer error message. Screen width wasn't the problem.

     Screen shot

    How the fuck did you screen shot that? How tall is your monitor?

    Doesn't Alt-PrntScr capture the bits of the window that aren't visible on-screen? (I don't have easy access to a running instance of Windows to test.)



    And is anyone else having problems accessing http://what.thedailywtf.com/? 2014-06-11 06:14 UTC atm... DFM is indicating I'm not the only one.

    I see chown and forward slashes, so it's a *NIX system. Hopefully, otherwise this is an even biger WTF.

    Doesn't load here either.

    Ah. In that case, to use the one I have access to as an example, KSnapShot will take a screenshot of the whole of a window regardless of which parts of the window are actually visible in the viewport. (Presuming "Window under Cursor" is the selection criteria.)

    Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure there is no KSnapShot on OS X (which is what that screenshot is)

    It was merely an example. Other screenshotting software is available...

    I suspect he hit Shift+Command+4, then pressed the spacebar and clicked in the window. That grabs a shot of the window from the screen buffer, so it doesn’t matter how big the window is or if other windows are displayed over it.

    Yup. It's on a mac, and surprisingly, it doesn't matter how big the window is. The error message is from an Eventide plugin installer, BTW.

    On Windows, it does not. Alt-PrntScr takes the rectangular portion of the window that's on the screen and captures it directly from the screen buffer, which will also include anything that's floating on top of the window.

    For example:



  •  What The F* is happening with the side bar? There were several later stories than mine, and but now mine is back on top. Are they slowly moving the posts one by one to /dev/null or /dev/discourse?



  • tldr: sudo make sandwich


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    The sidebar is a merge of CS and DC sidebar story streams at the moment. And the system bot (“Paula Bean”) on the DC side was in a bad state, now (mainly?) fixed.
