Well, I can finally say I'm beginning to feel a bit more human again. Sometimes it's only when you're better that you realise just how sick you've been!! Don't know what it was - I only go to the docs when I'm almost dead - but it must have either been a very bad bout of food poisoning or a virus. I'm actually starting to enjoy my food again:)

Re 'Journey' - on top of all the other delays , I'm now having a problem with my screencaps. I've always used Cyberlink Power DVD before but it stopped working. I won't go into all the boring technicalities, but I could only download the latest version (12) and as usual what are supposed to be 'improvements' just cause a load of trouble. None of the screencaps show up anywhere on my pc (I did select to save them as a file, not clipboard). I do already have loads of screencaps saved from various places plus some I took myself some years ago so I'll have to try to use those, but it's slowing things down:( I'm wondering what programmes others use for screencaps.

Now, for my big news. My husband & I learned last weekend that we're going to be grandparents in August!! My daughter and her partner are expecting their first baby, although he does already have a son from a previous marriage. I'm still trying to get my head around this!! It's so wonderful to have some really good news for a change. I just wish my mom could still have been here for this - it's the news she longed for more than anything.

Oh God - I'm so old!!!

Many thanks:)

>>the only drawback is that if you don't buy it, the screencaps are made as bmps I think and then you have to resave them as jpgs.<<

Ah yes - that was always the case with PowerDVD when I was able to do caps with the old version. I could never understand why you couldn't opt for jpgs.

They do it that way so that people get fed up with the resaving and buy the full version (it's the same reason why downloading sites like Fileshare or Megaupload (RIP) make you wait until you can download something). After all, they want to make money with their software, not do people like you and me some good. :D
