Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
Please add an option to disable customized mouse cursors. I didn't notice this at first, but now I'm on a high dpi monitor and the cursor is tiny compared to what I have set in Windows.

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
The contrast between "blurple" background and white text is too high in my opinion. Make the text less white? just slightly gray. So I went to the old skool color setting, but now the black font is too thin. I don't like the font regardless of colors. On the main page, there's too much space …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

Also the "slow shell" is an IE4+ feature designed for Win95 that's integrated by default on Win98 and after. I remember the "slow shell" on Win95 had some ugly circle design in every folder window, later replaced by clouds in Win98 and squares in WinMe. On a 486 100 Mhz it was noticeably slower …

Re: Running DOS on modern hardware is impossible

in DOS
If this all fails, it would be still possible to use VMs to run DOS semi-natively. As in: DOS can still run "natively" on a virtualized x86 processor, but the rest of the PC environment is emulated/mapped. One can imagine a specialized Linux distro with nothing but QEMU (or something similar) on it …

Re: 35 years of Arctic Sea Ice Age

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtWTZIFgL_w We may guess it was even bigger before Except there's not really a big difference. There's more white color in 1980's than in 2010's, but the overall ice sheet in e.g. April 1984 is almost the same size as in April 2018. So is August 1984 vs August 2018. …

Re: /3GB switch on 32-bit Windows

As far as I remember, only Server/Workstation editions of 32-bit Windows ever supported more than 4GB of physical memory. One reason why is that device drivers have to be aware of PAE. Technically, PAE mode is always enabled in 32-bit Windows since Vista I think, but due to faulty drivers issue it …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
I've seen discussion that some drivers (especially Intel graphics) don't work with 32b PAE, but I've had no problems so far in this thing. I'd like to point out that on 32-bit Windows 7 the PAE mode is always enabled (but with a 4 GB limit), so "PAE patch" is to be understood as "patch for PAE", …

Re: /3GB switch on 32-bit Windows

All 32-bit programs/processes in Windows (even running in a 64-bit OS flavour) are limited to 2GB user address space. When a program reaches that limit, it gets terminated by the OS. There is no automatic termination by the OS when an application reaches some memory limit. All the OS does is that …

Re: Debugging assembly with rhide

Few years ago (and I mean like 2 or 3, not 20) there were major changes in DJGPP and GDB (the format of debugging symbols changed, if I remember correctly) so it may well be that Rhide is no longer compatible with current DJGPP and GDB. So you may want to try older versions (before 2015 or so) of …

Re: Microwave oven interferes with CRT?!

b) CRTs are sensitive to magnetic fields; their flyback units are akin to strong electro magnets I had a CRT so sensitive that it needed degaussing after rotating the monitor by 90 degrees on its stand. My theory was that sudden change of monitor's orientation with respect to Earth's magnet is …
