Re: Interview with "last XP fan"

in Milliways
Same experience here. Woms like Blaster, ILoveYou, massive botnets.... Thank you Windows XP ! That's what prompted MS to make SP2, which was so much of a massive change it was pretty much a new OS. I think the same. But that's also why XP has a certain charme, I guess. It's like an old blanket or …

Re: Interview with "last XP fan"

in Milliways
Nobody would be foolish enough to connect a PC directly to their cable modem without using a router. Or a least even Windows XP's "built-in" firewall. It was quite common actually back in the early days. People know better now, but in many cases you only had a modem and no router… and the XP …

Interview with "last XP fan"

in Milliways
Hi everyone, Just saw an interesting interview at golem.de, a German news site about technology. It reminds me of my own eXPerience; I used many of these programs, too. So I thought I share this with you for amusement. :) https://www.golem.de/news/20-jahre-windows-xp-der-letzte-xp-fan-2110-160514. …

Re: DingusPPC - Mac Emulator In Progress

If Win98 is so badly supported how come I can run the majority of things so good all the way up to the low end Pentium II 33's on my PC then? I only have trouble if I use my host CD ROM as then it stuttered like hell which I'm wondering if upgrading to I9 will fix that or not. Hi! Please explain. …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

Thanks everyone, there's some cool stuff really! 😁 Btw, I vaguely remember something about old pong consoles. I thing it's from the 70s, too. I *think* it was related to Radio Shack, as well. From what I remember,-very vaguely-, is, that early pong consoles generated a colour image on US American …

VBox: 3D acceleration for XP/Vista broken since v6.1

in Milliways
Hi everyone, This is perhaps old news, but a few days ago I noticed that there was a change in XP compatibility. The change happened about two years ago, already, but maybe you didn't notice. Apparently, there was a security hole in the old "VGA" emulation, so VBox switched to two newer ones (one …

Re: DingusPPC - Mac Emulator In Progress

Hopefully this will be a MACEM like PCEM. Exactly my thoughts! While the classic 68000 Macs are emulated acceptable by now -except for the Mac II, maybe-, the higher end PPC Macs are not. They are a bit like Pentium Pros/Pentium IIs running Windows 9x, emulation wise. Just like with Windows 98SE/Me …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

This topic needs more screenshots! Let those CGA-colors shine! Creative Contraptions: CGA all the way :). It also uses the blue background-color that is not always used in games.

Re: TERRIBLE NEWS!

in Windows
Intel has different issue, too. https://www.zdnet.com/article/minix-intels-hidden-in-chip-operating-system/ Seriously, I trust neither Intel, nor AMD. They are both awful, imho. That's why I used a VIA system years ago. I felt sick being a customer of either company. And sick of those never ending …
