comment Automatically taking screenshots with IrfanView: shortcut not working at startup
Thanks for you help, by the way.

comment Automatically taking screenshots with IrfanView: shortcut not working at startup
@Karan: I tried both; neither work. For the scheduled task, the problem seems to be that it has to run as SYSTEM and cannot access my screen. A login script doesn't work at all (not even one that just echoes a line to a logfile).

@Karan: I just tried. Nothing shows up in the logfile at all. Not even when I place the batchfile itself in the startup folder. Other shortcuts are working fine.

@Karan: I am just trying to get this to work. If you can tell me how to do it with Windows utilities I'll be happy.

I put a shortcut to the batch file in the startup directory. In the actual script, echo is on, but I haven't tried logging the output, thanks!

comment How to get WYSIWYP (print what you see) in a web browser?
Indeed, I discovered some really annoying side effects from using this software, and uninstalled it for that reason.

comment Are there any security or performance implications of changing the user-agent in a browser?
None at all. I don't believe any browser behaves differently based on how you set its User-Agent string.

This appears to work, too. I was hoping the PDF would give me scalable graphics, but it's just a bitmap.

comment Why would you `cat /dev/null > /var/log/messages`?
Another negative effect of the second method: the file's owner, permissions, and possibly other attributes may differ from those of the original file. You might accidentally create a log file that the logging process can't write to, or worse.
