Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

in Milliways
With a Netscape and roytam1’s NSS patch to bring TLS 1.2, I can surf a good amount of websites on Windows 98. However I use it only when I know where is what I want to download or read. for example, I can log into VOGONS, but CSS and JS does not work so well. Same for MSFN. For retro networking to …

Re: Let's talk about our hated trends

Here's another trend: Widescreen monitors vs old-style squared monitors, for both desktop and notebook pcs? Which one people prefer? Now every screen (computer/tv/mobile devices) are widescreen. This is nuts.

I just can't understand why Microsoft does not make available as a single download from an downloads page. I very much prefer to shut down automatic updates completely and choose religiously what I want to update or not, whenever I want, not when they want me to. I stripped down a Windows 10 VM ( …

Re: Technological critique

You can criticize USB-C all you want, but this change is happening as we talk now. IMO In at least two years or less everyone will have moved to USB-C and drop older USB ports. I have nothing against USB-C anyway, but I am not defending it either. I am just saying this change was and is inevitable. …

Everytime I see an article on Slashdot about the latest ruinous Windows 10 update it just further cements my intention to stick with Windows 7 (audience gasps). 7? I stick with 2000/XP lol. I never liked Vista, I almost threw up with 7 (never liked the Aero Glass theme), and I kicked the butt of …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

I read every apple resource, not just macrumors. Would be silly to just put it all on only one resource. The “drugs” remark was for Intel486Troll, not for you. But if it fits you... If you wanna waste your time being a troll, believing that Intel is still great and calling others names and accusing …

@imi: I have to agree with you this time. @Intel486dx33: What drugs are you using? See Cal, he is definitely a professional Troll. *LMAO* Now, seriously: Both are wrong. Apple Silicon is not an ARM CPU per se, it is just a custom SoC with ARM based instruction set. https://www.imore.com/mac-moving- …

@Intel486dx33: It would be better for you if you could have something to prove what you say, otherwise, like @imi said, you might be posting a lot of false stuff with no stats or reference information to defend it. Try to put some references to prove it. Or better, don't even bother. @imi: Apple …

I will just leave this here to elaborate more on mr.cat's post. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/windows-10-bug-corrupts-your-hard-drive-on-seeing-this-files-icon/ Pretty sure XP has some malwares still around, but again, user actions matters most. Just don't download anything shady …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Has this forum become a troll bait? When do you guys realize that Robertmo and Intel486dx33 are just trolls who aren't even remotely interested in having a conversation or discussion? Their only goal and intention is to provoke, trigger and troll everyone with statements which are (mostly) …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

And if Intel end up going fabless up against AMD, then they are totally fucked because as a chip manufacturer they are in shambles. They will prbably crash and burn, and I will shed not a single tear after them. I second that. Intel is kinda lost while AMD is supposed to be working in a ARM SoC to …

Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

Since I am behind a router with firewall, I see no problem in letting my retro virtual machines go online. There is no sensitive information in them, only games. When I am in the mood for more nostalgia, I go online with mIRC on Win98. I can’t believe IRC servers still exists, since the first time I …
