Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

We've kinda moved from catchy to descriptive. And as everything is "on the go" it's kinda redundant Smile

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Are you guys going to portablize the latest version of CamStudio being that 2.0 has been out for quite a while? Or are you waiting for it to be finished? I know there are problems getting the beta to work on Windows 7 even though the required dlls are included...

We generally only do stable releases. Except for projects that are in perpetual beta (Audacity, for example).

Can we use the Camstudio codec with this version?

Make the world portable! Please.

It writes registry entries into HKLM, and those entries are (currently) not supported, so you'll install it into the computer, but it won't go back onto the flash drive for later.

But it should be a pretty easy fix.

[OT] your signature: "Make the world portable..." do you mean TheWorld web browser, or just every app on earth portable?
