Re: Windows 3.1 will turn 30 soon

in Milliways
I was curious what the last version of Office is that runs on Windows 3.1. I'm surprised to find even Office 95 won't run on it, that version actually required Windows 95 (or NT 3.51). Windows 3.1 was a whole 3 years old, or only ~6 months old to somebody who just bought it recently. Microsoft said …

Re: omg in heaven duck duck go is worse then google!!!

in Milliways
I've grown to despise Google as a company, and I want to support competition to knock them off their powerful perch.

Re: Voodoo 5 preventative maintenance

It's a proprietary form factor though, it needs a matching Dell case unless you just want to lay it on a table or try to come up with a clunky way to rig it in an ATX. The front panel connector is also a Dell ribbon connector - the power switch pins are …

Re: AGP vs PCI video card perfromance discussion

[EDIT] I'm pretty sure the 3D Prophet II MX PCI runs at 183Mhz core. Not that it makes much difference, but the AGP version of that card I had back then ran at 175MHz core, 183MHz 128-bit SDRAM. The driver came with Coolbits enabled but the GPU wasn't overclocked by default. I've never seen the PCI …
