Something that has always annoyed me about Windows is the lack of ability to change pointer speed on a per-device basis. I prefer my touchpad to be faster than default, and my USB mouse to be the standard speed. I've been annoyed for years about that, but not annoyed enough to do anything about it, until today. A quick Google Search and I found this: https://www.eithermouse.com/

A neat little free utility that can change the pointer speed, among some other settings I'll never bother with. I don't know how many other people share this annoyance with me, but if you do.... well there you go.

Speaking of Windows annoyances, it becomes increasingly difficult to get analog capture devices to work.
In my case (EzCap116, USB 2861) I finally got it to work again by using VLC.

I may go and see if Linux does a better job at supporting it.

USB analog capture devices have almost always had problems with any platform. This usually stems from crap drivers.

I use Virtualdub and in the advanced capture device setting I set Async Audio/Video capture. Ironically, this is the only way to synchronize the audio and video properly, but more importantly, it also fixes the lag you will experience if trying to capture game footage from a console.

So the US might start a war with Iran...

Is this finally enough for the remaining faithfuls to say this guy is dangerous?

Dude we are intimidating nations on TWITTER.
What a way to start 2020. :(

.....So the Patriots are out of the playoffs in the first round for the first time in forever. That's a thing.


As far as politics goes, I'm still going with Giant Meteor.

It wasn't born in the US and it only shares a few values with most Americans.
I don't think its a viable candidate.
Are you concerned about gun control, health insurance, national debt, foreign affairs, or global warming? Do you occasionally have an itchy ballsack? Does the woman in your life nag you? THEN GIANT METEOR IS FOR YOU! It's the only candidate that will make sure you don't have any more problems or worries, ever.

It will also get rid of porn and TV; hard pass.

What capture device do you use?

Anyway, the overlay does simply not show anymore for this device in virtualdub. It does in VLC. Capturing itself works in virtualdub as well but it's hard to see what you are capturing without overlay.
Maybe I need some old directshow DLL or something.

I have an old ATI TV Wonder 650 USB. This thing was released amid the acquisition of ATI by AMD when AMD sold off ATI's TV division. Most of ATI's TV capture stuff was pretty solid but the sell-off ended any further driver development. A no-lag "game capture" mode was supposed the be in an upcoming driver update, but never happened in the end. So I used Virtualdub to disable post processing like deinterlacing, sharpening, color correction, etc. and enable audio/video async so I could play in real time while capturing. I did all of the stuff normally handled automatically by the driver with AVISynth after I had captured the footage. This provided much better video quality anyway.

I haven't tried using it in Windows 10 x64. Honestly, I doubt it will work properly because of Windows 10's updated driver model. I'd probably have to use a virtual machine like VMWare Workstation Player to connect directly with the USB interface while using an older OS like Windows 7 x64. (It worked fine there iirc)

EDIT: sometimes the overlay wouldn't show because D3D9 video acceleration had to be enabled in VDub's main settings. (outside of capture mode)

That won't happen because the ones who have the power are a bunch of cowards and that goes for every country in this world. You have also the excuse of "doing it for your country" when in reality you are doing it for a bunch of apes thinking is their business to put their nose everywhere just to feel better.

A better option is actually invest that money in what actually matters and that is the people, health care and many other things. USA regardless of their position aren't in best shape right now and they have a lot of people in need of that money they may burn in a war.

IMO war should be made at eSports events making those apes battle each other in call of duty :p

In "Starship Troopers" Robert Heinlein wrote that all politicians must serve a number of years in a branch of the military. This is for the express purpose of exposing them to the horrors of war and more importantly, that soldiers as well as "the enemy" are people too, tempering their willingness to go to war and use it truly only as a last resort.

Robert Heinlein owns.

In other news my country is literally on fire and I feel so bad for those affected, this is some insane levels of bushfires and social media is making everything objectively worse.

Right wing media making stupid claims, left wing media making equally stupid claims, people who can't spell or grammatically structure a sentence are spitting hard facts by "telling it how it is" while exceptionally hard working volunteers and fire service people are working insanely long shifts to save lives and property and are beyond exhausted.

Army reserve was called in to support, but with the drought being this severe (my town had less than 40% of it's annual rain fall) there's no amount of work that could be done to safely reduce the risk of bushfires. This year was also the first year on record to have 0% rainfall across the entire continent on a single day. Zero rain. Anywhere.

The death toll is sad, the habitat loss is heart breaking, my beautiful country burns and people are too happy to slap fight over political ideology and refuse to acknowledge the reality of the current climate.

I love my country, but some of the idiots who sprout garbage that spreads as easily as the flames makes it harder to cope with.

You could've stopped there as that applies to almost everything.

I know little about what's going on down there as I try to avoid all news at all costs nowadays, but from what I've heard it sounds quite tragic indeed. Hopefully Australia heals and becomes more beautiful than ever. Or at least maybe it'll wipe out a couple dozen of those killer insects you have there.
