Re: Windows XP how much people still use for MAIN OS?

in Milliways
Here are my thoughts on the shells in Windows over time. Of course we've got to start with DOS. You have your classic DOS commands, DIR, ATTRIB, COPY, MOVE, MKDIR, etc. I wish they lined up better with Unix commands, e.g. you have to use COPY instead of cp and RENAME instead of mv. You can pipe …

Re: Boot diskette for Windows 95

in DOS
To add onto the previous reply, RawWriteWin is also a great tool for writing floppy images too. It lets you read them back as well for a quick MD5 to verify it was written correctly. The source is available and it runs on Win 95 to 10, might be a fun task to add auto-verify to it... http://www. …

Re: Pentium Katmai Showoff

I would rather do extensive maintenance on a older 2000s Codegen unit than trying to run some expensive Corsair/EVGA/ThingaMajig unit that's severely lacking on the 3.3 and 5v rails. For a 440BX based build, does running a modern PSU have any consequential effects? I was under the impression that …

Re: MS DOS INSTALL

in DOS
It would be good to test your floppies too if it's possible they're not good. I usually MD5 the source image, write it, read it back, then MD5 the result and compare. SITE NAME REMOVED has some other known good images you could try: LINK REMOVED Plop Boot Manager is also a good tool to try. …

Re: ISA sound card for Windows XP

16-bit Aztech cards are compatible with WSS. So, that Aztech card most likely does support 48 kHz. The Aztech ended up only supporting 44.1 KHz :[ oh well. I bought an inexpensive Crystal based ISA card with no frills and simple layout. I'll update with results when it arrives. I would suggest …

Re: Lightweight browser for windows 2000

in Windows
Retrozilla might work okay, if slowly. I would skip installing any of the extra add-ons, then go through the settings and turn off any extra features you can like spellcheck and smooth scrolling. I also like to change the icons to text and collapse as much of the menu bars as I can to save browsing …

Re: ISA sound card for Windows XP

Sound card with 48kHz output is preferable. ISA sound blaster never had it and Aztech most likely neither. Windows Slund System (WSS) was 48 KHz. Thanks! I wasn't thinking about the sample rate so that helps narrow the choices down a lot. I found a post from 2014 on another forum that lists a bunch …

ISA sound card for Windows XP

Hi everyone, I'm working on an early 2000s XP machine without on-board sound. It's a 440BX system with a 1.4GHz Celeron and 1 AGP, 3 PCI, and 3 ISA slots. Fast connectivity was more important to me than PCI sound and EAX/A3D, so I've used the PCI slots for an ATA133 card, a USB 2.0 card, and an …

Re: Year 2038 bug?

in Milliways
If anyone here is interested in OpenBSD, they converted all internal timestamps to 64 bits in the May 2014 release (OpenBSD 5.5). I thought it was cool how quickly they got ahead of the issue. :) time_t is now 64 bits on all platforms. From OpenBSD 5.5 onwards, OpenBSD is year 2038 ready and will …

Re: Windows 2000 abnormal behavior

in Windows
It sounds very abnormal to me. Is there any chance you could reinstall without the floppy drive connected? I don't know any exact registry keys to check, but I think Windows may maintain a list of places to check when it needs files during device or driver installation, and I'm wondering if somehow …
