Hi everyone,

Just found something amusing.

Did you ever feel that there's something wrong with Win 95?

(Well, yes, Win95 was no real 32-Bit real operating system. That's old news, though.)

If you did, have a look at this site.
You won't* regret it.

You can't scare me, I've been helped by Clippy.

2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?

Real error messages were sometimes nice, confusing, or completely bonkers, a french mag (SVM) used to publish a good selection in every issue.

The last one I got when installing some Ati card in 98

Not exactly Windows 95 (XP), but still just as creepy. No idea what I was trying to close at the time.

I wish I'd got a shot of one I got last year, just "Couldn't" with the OK button... but I was trying to set something up, was less than impressed at the unhelpful msg and clicked it shut growling. Then 5 mins later it struck me as mildly amusing.
