Re: Thoughts on IT outage

in Milliways
Their development process must be completely f****ed up. Obviously a lot of Crowdstrike higher ups/executives should be fired and never allowed to work in the field again, but what will probably happen is that a few lowly developer/QAs (that were probably under a lot of pressure to begin with) will …

Re: Windows 95 Boot Disk Vs. Startup Disk

The startup disk created from within Windows was meant to help you start your pc and diagnose/fix stuff, boot clean to update BIOS or to remove viruses etc. The factory-made boot disk that accompanied the CD was meant to help you start Windows installation, hence the CDROM drivers, SCSI etc.

Re: What do you drive?

in Milliways
Today's average unleaded fuel cost in my area is $1.92 per litre. For that much money, I could buy about 100L, perhaps one-and-a-half tanks of fuel for my old car. This puts me well in front of all but the most fuel-sipping 2-door hybrids, and lightyears in front of my old 6-cyl 4L tank, in terms …

There is something very weird going on with new threads and posts lately, it's as if a different kind of people suddenly actively joined the forum. Did any famous youtuber or similar recommend the forum? I can't think of anything else as the change is very sudden. I often bring up this forum during …

Re: Using 8088/8087s ...

Is there a reason you want a modern motherboard, or you just think it's more possible that it has a socket? Because some old motherboards had sockets too, admittedly not too many for the CPU. Another option would be to install a socket on an old motherboard, it's "only" 40 pins, meaning that it's …

Re: Possible to Backup Windows 98 Directory?

Would xcopy work? Can I do it from dos mode or do I need a boot disk? Xcopy is enough, you can just copy the whole drive ignoring anything that fails, for example the swap file. You need to do it from windows though, in a command prompt window and not dos, in order to maintain LFN and have …

Re: After installing Windows 3.11 on top of MSDOS622, I'm forced to execute WIN inside C:\WINDOWS folder. Why?

solved redoing install but instead of doing it from a CD, I did it from the hard disk, and then It was able to ovewrite the autoexec.bat enabling the C:\WIN command Good that you solved it, but installing from a CD was not the reason win.com's location was not added to the path. Probably this time …

Re: AI users?

Am I being paranoid or do others feel with me that we have several AI chat bots in the forum? I noticed recently the presence of posts that indicate a certain level of dumbness/inaptness from the author. And as their thread develops in, it feels more that they don't listen well or do not follow …

Re: Looking for a way to 'BBS' in Windows 3.11

in Milliways
Terminate works fine under win3.x and 9.x, but I don't remember if the shareware version expires or just keeps nagging to register. I never used another client before I abandoned BBSs for the internet, so I can't recommend a native windows application.
