  1. I tried linux and it was awful. I'll never use that as a desktop OS. Though I will use it to run a web server.

  2. Kettel - Boekabaas
  3. That sounds like a great idea.. Though I move my eyes a lot and wouldnt the cursor disapear everytime I blink? I blink a lot as far as I know. and I move my eyes around the screen a lot since sometimes I have to scan with my eyes to see certain things.
  4. About my only experience with config.sys was to tell Windows 98 setup where to find himem.sys so that it could open up the setup program... oh man, what a pain.
  5. What do you plan to do with this computer?
  6. Thanks. I think this should solve the problem.
  7. Just posted something to my Facebook timeline, though it doesnt appear, yet someone saw it and clicked like on it. Yeah, whatever Facebook. Slipshod as always

  8. What is this grub4dos supposed to do? It appears that it's a boot loader.
  9. I actually saw that page when I was searching on the internet for how I could do this. Though other than that all I could find was tutorials telling me how to boot into DOS with a floppy disk, which I can't do since floppy disks arent available... I know that optiplex gx260 can support USB booting with a BIOS upgrade. It doesnt support it as is, I tried. As for booting with the grub thingy, the OS I'm currently running on the Optiplex is Windows XP Proffesional. I wouldnt mind learning more about that method you mentioned.
  10. I want to upgrade my Dell Optiplex GX260 BIOS so that it can boot via USB Flash drive. Though every resource I can find tells me you need a blank floppy disk. I can't find floppy disks anywhere and far as I know they whent the way of the dinosores years ago. Does anyone have any idea how I can do this using a more modern method?
  11. I lived and developed WPI on a 466MhZ w\256 megs ram for over a year on XP. While slow it was acceptable at the time. I ment how the Windows XP OS runs today. Software in general tends to expand. This includes the updates, your browser of choice etc. The last OS I ran with 256 mb of memory was Windows 98. The amount of memory that wouldve been okay at one time, is totally different today. Running Windows XP with less than 512 mb of memory causes an excessive amount of paging.
  12. I removed the Flash plugins from my computers. Everything runs so much better :)

  13. Today I installed windows classic sound schemes for Windows XP. I got it because I was geting bored of the Windows XP sound scheme. I tend to use the Windows 2000 one because it's nicer. Though I listened to the Windows 98 start up sound and I felt so sad, I could never use that one. Windows 95 gave me warm feelings of nostalgia, though it was sort of sickening. Windows 3.1.... well I had no idea that had sounds and I never used Windows 3.1 anyways. So what do you think? Do Windows OS you used many years ago make you nostalgic?
  14. My netbook was an upgrade compared to what I'm used to.

  15. oh hi. Windows 2k. Long time no see
