  2. The jacket vendor has however the advantage of seeing the physical credit card of the customer, which, in some cases, may contribute to better understand the customer's character, and be prepared to being questioned about (say): 1) the colour of the jacket he sold 2) how the jacket was manufactured, including, but not limited to, the quality of the leather, the choice of the sewing patterns, the specific brand of thread used (and its colour), the way it was folded and stored, the chemical composition of the plastic bag it was in, the temperature (min, max and average) and percentage of humidity of the storage warehouse for the last 10 years 3) how the jacket was advertised, the choice of furniture of the shop and the design of its lighting 4) the size and position of each and every pocket of the jacket 5) the choice of zips instead of buttons (or of buttons instead of zips) and being suggested how to better each one of these items. SCOOP! We have an image of the centurion on 98SE's Amex card: jaclaz
  3. Today
  4. Yes, it is as you said ... I already had two of those five updates installed and those updates were not installed again ... but I did need three out of the five. So all is well. ...
  5. SvcHostSplitThresholdInKB @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control change the entry (decimal) to your installed amount of ram in kb and reboot, services (svchost) will go back to being grouped like previous versions of windows.
  6. Automatic translation is very often terrible, rest assured that the adjective otiose has been chosen very carefully, hand picked among a number of possible candidates, and intentionally posted in Aldine, what you would call italic. Particularly, it was a comment aimed to Dencorso, we speak languages that share a common latin origin and as such it is often fun for us to use here and there some latin-derived words that an average native English speaker would never use (and possibly doesn't even know), even if they are correct. @dencorso jaclaz
  7. You could use REXX. It is pretty good at big numbers. You can even farm stuff out to even faster programs in line with rexx. /* A 240-digit rexx calculator */ numeric digits 240 parse arg chalk interpret 'cheese = ' chalk say cheese exit cube: procedure; parse arg x return x*x*x factor: procedure; parse arg x 'factor' x return x This program is a rexx program that finds allows all internal commands, along with CUBE(). If you put factor(2000**3-1) in there, it will print the factors of the evaluated expression and continue calculating. Note this uses an external command 'factor'. I use the Shamus Software demonstration program here. I've written rexx scripts to calculate very large numbers, up to ninety digits, and feed the result into factor.
  8. I think it's was meant for helpdesk98....
  9. firefox 53.0 works on vista you could add it but it needs a bit of modifications,install it on a win7+ pc use pemaker to change sys and subsys o/s from 6.1 to 6.0,it works flawlessly Google Chrome 50 works on vista,install on a windows 7+ pc and launch in vista(Chrome 51 launches perfectly but nothing works) Opera 37 works aswell instructions are same as google chrome Setup wont launch so Win7+ is needed,unless some other means of extraction is used. According to me these are probably the final versions unofficially working/supported , also note that these browser versions aren't supported anymore even though they are pretty recent.
  10. On another note, in an effort to give the list more exposure and keep it from getting buried into obscurity, I will now post comments containing a log of any major updates/changes to the list each time they are made. I hope this is okay with the admins. Prior to now, I was simply summarizing the changes in the "Reason for edit" section. However, the section has a character limit that doesn't always allow for me to mention all of the changes made, unless I leave out some information, which is not desirable for me.
  11. Thanks for the addition, Werewolf. NOTE: Waterfox 53.0.3 is the final release for Windows Vista. Later versions require the TryAquireSRWLockExclusive function located in KERNEL32.DLL, which is a Windows 7+ function. However, after a discussion about it with the head developer himself, he said he would consider doing a separate release for older systems, which I presume to be Vista/XP x64. You can view our discussion here:
  12. Yeah, it was the release version, I just copied the numbers from above. Double check: firefox plugin that I kept is here. Beta version never entered my computer. GL
  13. Yes. By hand. No need. The only one one can set to sizes above 512 MiB, while keeping the system able to allow Win 9x/ME to run stably is RLoew's non-XMS Ramdisk.
  14. Yesterday
  15. You made the claim that my Patch has a limit in the first 1GB. There is no such limit. People who buy my RAMDisks want to be able to use large RAMDisks. Otherwise they could use a free one. Pre-Pentium Computers don't have enough RAM to justify my RAMDisks, so there is no point to support them. A Conventional Memory RAMDisk is even smaller and a HMA RAMDisk is absurdly small. You clearly do not understand how MMIO is allocated. You will not see 3840MB with a 256MB Card. You would be lucky to see 3584MB. Read the PCI Spec. The RAMDisks are TSRs so they cannot be deallocated. Most people use only one or two RAMDisks so your redesign ideas are of little value. Making it the "best" all-around RAMDisk was never my purpose and gains me nothing. There is no point in competing with free stuff. You still have not come up with a productive use for uninstalling RAMDisks. Reducing the price of my Patch is not going to increase sales by a factor of four. An AHCI Driver is possible. I have created Source Code for the Disk Driver. I said it is easy to extract a Video Card ROM. That doesn't make it any easier to Emulate. Emulating Boot devices requires a DDO style RAMDisk such as the GRUB4DOS RAMDisk. Thattype of RAMDisk is an entirely different project. Copying Windows 9x into a RAMDisk is a way of minimizing the impact of AHCI. Using a PCI-E SATA Card is a better one. MS-DOS 7 may have a problem listing a very large number of Files but it is not dependent upon the size of the Partition. I don't require my Customers to identify their MSFN Handles. Some volunteer this information or it may be obvious from the interactions. It has come in handy when I need to E-Mail them and their E-Mail has changed. You claimed publicly that you were a Customer and hoped to curry favor for being one. That nullified your claim to privacy. I never said that you have to reveal your name or E-Mail publicly. You gave me your name and E-Mail when you purchased the Patch. If you bought a jacket with a Credit Card, the retailer gets your name and card number. In any case, I was able to determine your name and E-Mail from the information you already provided.
  16. Do you have a list of any other paid Ramdisk for DOS or 9X/ME? Why choose this version of CrystalDiskMark 2.2? Any specific versions or last version number for DOS? And which versions works in 9X/ME only? Any way to remove double spacing in your results?
  17. Save it for the Wonder Woman movie.
  18. No don't say that. It's getting better all the time. Maybe in 1990s it was terrible. Now we have Rosetta Stone and real time smartphone translators. It will be a matter of time when we have the equivalent of a Star Trek universal translator where it will be automatic. Jaclaz uses some esoteric words now and then mixed with standard colloquial. Usually translators give you these odd words.
  19. Of course, he doesn't! Machine translation sucks! Moreover, those non-native speakers who acquire fluency above a certain threshhold (who also are a minority among the non-native speakers of any language) usually have a wider and more varied vocabulary than native speakers, particularly because such people tend to be able to speak more than two languages...
  20. Mars Bar? Hmmm... I never thought it to be that special here. Maybe one day when Elon Musk takes us to Mars these will start selling like hotcakes. Freddo vs Mars Index... which will succeed in the future you think? Snicker's seems to be more favored over Mars Bars I thought for a candy bar. I barely see any Mars Bar commercials. But the King sized Snicker's can cost close to $2. Only the McDonald's Dollar Menu used to sell hamburgers (usually no ham in these) so they just call them burgers as low as $1 a few years back then the price jumped back up to almost $2. McChicken and McDouble and Value Fries for $3 plus tax. No more Arch Deluxe. Not sure if I ever had a McPizza or a McLobster but they are very McFly.
  21. Hmmm interesting choice of word "otiose". Jaclaz do you use a translator to convert to English or is this your normal English speaking style? Very soon we might have a Limitation Patch to International Hamburger Exchange Rate. I say to be fair Carl's Junior / Hardee's 6 Dollar Burger is the average big burger in the U.S. Maybe the organic beef version cost $8. Any other good burger prices globally in your areas fellow MSFN? This will solve Dencorso's interest plus make me hungry. I already donated 3 very good big burgers for the Limitation Patch so I felt maybe Dencorso got a big discount when he said in an earlier statement I thought he was hinting he only paid for the cost of one hamburger.
  22. Original site for XP driver only is down. Found a backup link. Maybe some way to extract from executable just the driver files to inspect INF and transfer IDs to 98 INF. Good find jaclaz, not sure if WinTV-HVR-1600 can be added to work but here are the 98 INF supported IDs from PVR 250/350. I still recommend to use WinTV-HVR-1600 with XP instead of 9X/ME. It uses around 200MB when WinTV is started and memory usage climbs up. Maybe a proper 9X/ME beta driver might exist near product launch. . .

  23. Isn't beta? Try the released version,, and see if it works OK.
  24. It is definitely Flash. Opera worked fine for years, I just regularly updated the plugin (replaced NPSWF32.dll in C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\program\plugins\). Now, when I did that with flash, there were few days of crashes. I reverted to and not a crash since. I can't think of a better proof that it's Flash. GL
  25. Well, you wouldn't want the Financial Times to use the same scale as The Economist, wouldn't you? but I believe the Mars Bar is more related to inflation or differential of buying capacity over time (but "domestic", not as comparison with other countries), just as the Freddo Index (which also is connected to the Mars Bar one): While the MarS Bar is "international" the Freddo is a British only brand/name- jaclaz
