Something has happened either to my brain or to my copy of the IrfanView image viewer. I seem to remember being able to right click images in that program, but I tried it a while ago and it didn't work. I've never set the program to make it impossible to right click and copy images (in fact I don't know that the program even has such a feature- I certainly haven't been able to find it), but all of a sudden every image I open in the program refuses to be right clicked- and I can't remember if it has always been like that.

I can still copy images in my browser, but none of those are images that have been in my copy of IrfanView lately. Thus, I'm uploading an image that has been there, and posting it so I can see if it's right-clickable from the browser. If it isn't, then something has happened in Sluggo's tiny brain, and I'll have to figure out how to fix it.

The picture is of Concow Reservoir, a place down the canyon a few miles which collects water from an old flume owned by PG&E. I think I posted this picture before, from my now defunct PictureTrail account. That was a smaller file, though, since PictureTrail imposed a size limit. This one is a nice big wallpaper size, if you click through to the original version. I just hope it's right-clickable. It's a nice scene. I'd like to go back and take another picture of it some day, when I have a real camera.

yes, it's right-clickable. the water is so pretty!

i've been using Irfan's viewer for years and have never found it right-clickable. hmmmm. or maybe i'm not understanding your problem correctly.

Apparently I just never tried to right click with it before. I thought I had, but I guess not.

So, it isn't a computer problem. It's a brain problem. Feh. I'm not only forgetting things that happened yesterday, I'm remembering things that never happened. And I criticize Sluggo for being doltish!

i'm having to learn not to be angry with myself over my memory lapses and such. i used to count on having a really good memory, but not any more. ah well. apparently, i'm gaining wisdom, or so they say. ;)

Ah, so it's a trade-off! Well, I fear that if I grow any wiser, I'll forget my name and address. I think I'd rather remain happily foolish!

is that for real?
if you don't remember something
and then re-learn it,
is it gaining wisdom?

I need to make a note of this
so I can use it as my trump card.
do you think it counts as 'continuing education'?

ha! well, knowledge and wisdom (fortunately enough, given my memory) aren't the same thing. but truly, continuing education is what we're all embarked upon, i'm sure of it.

play that trump card for all it's worth. :D

Thanks. I apparently dreamed having been able to right click things in IrfanView. I wonder if it's worse to remember things that never happened, or to forget things that did?

Hard to say.. I guess you can always test, when in doubt!
