Re: Installation of DOS 6.22 from cd-rom disk

I find that installing MS-DOS 6.22 from a CD-ROM or over the network is actually very practical when dealing with a bunch of old systems, at least those of the AT kind or faster. The setup program in MS-DOS 5/6 supplies a minimal configuration which may not be desirable if you need a lot of …

Re: pii legacy's old PC's

Oh man, Ubuntu 8.04! I miss the GNOME 2/KDE 3 days. Kinda makes me wish I spent more time with such old distros lately, as I remember seeing a bunch of old videos showing how cool Linux was for making any Pentium II rig look so powerful with a faster AGP card and CompizFusion. I've found that …

Inside the case is a QA stamp …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I recently got an AV.io HD to replace my Game Broadcaster HD, and so far I'm loving it. I can confirm that it supports a wide variety of video modes, including those you'd commonly expect in DOS programs. 320x200 VGA, EGA, CGA, the AwardBIOS POST screens, and even interlaced refresh rates coming …

Re: Dual CPU system

If you're into creating various sorts of media on old hardware, 3ds MAX and Photoshop are great examples of programs which can take advantage of dual CPU workstations. Not everything in these programs may be multithreaded, with encoders bundled with Windows or the programs themselves being …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
The functional improvements are very much welcomed, but the design is quite an eyesore, even with the "Old Skool" color scheme. Every page still loads as fast for me as the old design did, so it's not as bad as a routine YouTube interface update (and that's saying something when I have a 55 down/10 …
