Nope, no booze of any kind laying around the house, although I've been tempted lately to get some Gentleman Jack.

Broccoli on the other hand is plentiful.

All the programs I have and need run on XP.  I have hard copies of all of them.  I got them back when hippie was teaching me the ropes, which was 2007.  I built the puter from scratch especially for XP as a music server, I guess maybe nearly 10 years ago.  First effort and it lit up the first time I pushed the button, too.  Used a gamer's box and run it with the case sides off and very, very open to keep everything as cool as possible.  It is quite stable and does everything I need musically for ripping, editing, playing and burning.  I have 4 X 2 TB WD Black's for hard drives and a partitioned Samsung SSD for my C drive with all of my program files in the other partition, makes it pretty quick even with only 4 Gb's of RAM with an I - 5 Pentium QC processor.  That and I can re image the C and not have to reinstall my programs when I do that.  It's hardwired to my receiver in the living room on the other side of the wall of the office / studio via a 25 foot toslink optical cable.  Pure wav played in Sound Forge 8.0 to the DAC in my receiver. Or foobar.  Sounds good enough for me.  I also listen to 16 bit / 48 khz wav files in the car using up to a 128 g USB thumb drive.  Luvs, my Pioneer deck.  It is still all about the music regardless of everything else.

I'm on a Dell Win 7 pro for the net.  The wife has a Dell Win 10 all in one touchscreen and I have a Dell Win 10 laptop, barely used, somewhere.  Then there is my old liquid cooled Vaio XP Media edition which was my original multimedia puter.  It still works, I think.  Been a couple of years since I lit it up.

Q :  Is there a program out there that will capture the live on screen action plus audio ?  For Windows XP ?

I have seen music videos on You Tube where the maker will post what is the live playback of the wav files in a music studio such as Audacity or Sound Forge.

I would like to make an audio / video capture of the editing of wav files with the corresponding sound in real time.  Essentially what I am doing is redrawing the wav files with a mouse pencil tool like you might do with a CAD program ?

I would like to make a tutorial video of this process.

Thanks in advance.
 

I googled "screencasting software for windows xp". I can't vouch for any of the hits or mentioned applications. I think you'll see slim pickings for software compatible with the ancient XP.

https://www.google.com/search?...
You might want to check out VLC for its screenrecording/screencasting capabilities. VLC is reliable and open-source, normally used for playing back rare and abandoned video file formats. But apparently you can record video clips, Webcam video and take screenshots! I don't know if it records audio at the same time but I think most screencasting apps will do that. No idea if VLC is XP-compatible for your needs but it wouldn't surprise me.

Thanks.  I wasn't sure of the term used, which evidently is screencasting.  I'm a total idiot when it comes to video.  Audio on the other hand, I do well with.

I have VLC installed on the XP already.  I had no idea.  I'll give it a try first and see if I can get it to work.  My music computer is XP.  That is all it does and runs software which still works very well.

One might consider using DNS encryption, such as dnscrypt-proxy plus Tor, on top of using a VPN (depending on one's privacy needs).  Generally speaking, there seems to be no reason to trust any VPN provider more than any IS provider. 

 

Sorry I didn't see this sooner...

I believe that Firefox has a checkbox option that enables DNS over Https. Cloudfare and some other DNS providers provide the same encryption. Some VPNs have an option of using Tor on top of their services.

I seriously disagree with your contention that "any VPN provider" deserves only the same level of trust you should give any ISP.

Take a photo with your phone. Share it, and your desktop should show up as an option. Tap that and away the photo goes. Or if you're actually doing work on your iPad, you save a file and airdrop it over to the desktop. Otherwise you have to email it or dropbox it or some bullshit like that.


 
Thanks, I'll play with that.

Interesting article.  Thanks kcar.  I might have missed when you first posted it.  That article is now bookmarked.  

I went ahead and ordered a subscription to Private Internet Access which is well regarded by wirecutter but not recommended because PIA has yet to allow a 3rd party audit.

I toyed with the idea of putting PIA on the wireless router but many recommend against that.  The other option is a standalone PC to support the VPN, ideally in a Unix-based language such as OpenBSD.  A buddy helped set up something similar for a firewall a couple of decades ago.  That solution would require considerable investment on my part.

Tip:    Remove, wipe clean and then re-install Windows apps that have migrated from 32bit to 64bit over the past few years.

Could be my imagination or pure coincidence but I seem to solve problems and improve performance the few times I have done this.  Current OS:  Windows 10 Version 1809; originally Windows 7 Home OEM.

On the HTPC system, all of a sudden , qbittorrent seemed to be eliminating internet access except for torrents and google searches.   This would happen once qbittorrent was loaded.  There was no requirement to start downloading.   So I uninstalled qbittorent, erased all the files, and deleted all the registry entries.  Tedious.  (Coincidentally I removed a number of Win32 malware files but that did not resolve the problem.)

Then I re-installed the most recent stable 64bit version of qbittorrent.   Problem solved.  

Did the same for VLC player and Irfan View a while back.  

 

someone in my circle that consumes a lot of media and does some online shopping keeps getting knocked offline

to boot they know less than nothing about tech and don't run and update maint programs i've installed

all of this is on a severely abused laptop  

my solution was something i've done in the past

just put them on IOS

it has certainly made my life easier

windows is still my workhorse both personally and professionally

because software
