  1. @Roffenin cases like that, simply search for the corresponding kb number in window update catalog :> Norwegian will be available :>
  2. Hi, I wanted to donate, I had chosen all settings and went to Paypal website when prompted. Paypal's site was in Danish which I understand, but seems strange when jumping from english site). I pressed 'Log på' and got redirected to non-existing website (see screenshot). TLS's 'lock' seemed to be OK according to my humble knowledge, uBlock origin was disabled for that case. Alternatively, there was an option to pay with credit/debet card on Paypal's site, but under such circumstances I'd like to wait with payment until the issue gets explained.
  3. I bet nuts against matches that we'll sooner see the release of Hurd kernel than complete ReactOS :>
  4. eye are see (irc)

    Noone wanted. Board is less ephemeral than IRC.
  5. Yep, I'm also thinking about some kind of system hardening for Office 2007.
  6. Is ME really that bad?

    Simplyfying, ME was a DOS- based beast without an easily-accesible DOS underneath, and no changes and improvements NT-based systems provided. Generally, Judging the system by the few moments with VM is not applicable, you have no way to get the experience and problems people had with it those days.
  7. Sorry, but the country in which you are looking for the job might be a problem. Help desk is being commonly outsourced to cheaper countries. India has a reputation as a most common destination for such outsourcing, but here, in Poland, it's also easy to find such job. For much less money, of course. But hey, if you can speak English well, they wont even require you to know polish, probably. Not to mention, that for some companies, that were founded with ethic on their banners, even here it is too expensive. https://protonmail.com/careers#technical-support-specialist
  8. What Are You Listening To?

    Also, still have 56K/48K somewhere in a box. However, it was rarely used due to costs. 5 years later, after the purchase, ADSL became popular, just within a day or so...
  9. Approximately day or two of reading. Then re-read it, because what you'd understood you've already forgotten, and you hadn't got it all during the first read. Different option then dencorso's way is to Turn on update search and leave PC waiting during the weekend to let Windows Update find the updates. If you don't want to Wait ~24 hours for the PC to find the freakin' updates, you need at least Office and Compatibility Pack updates downloaded manually and installed. Then other updates (IE8, Windows) are going smoothly within less then hour. Sorry, Windows XP is off the way and MS is not about to fix it.
  10. 7 Office 2007 Home and Student updates installed manually - I didn't bother checking precisely which ones are for me, just downloaded the ones that looked like so and ommitted obvious mishits (e.g. Outlook 2007 I do not own). KB4011062 for Excel 2007 Download Page KB3213644 Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 Download Page KB4011064 Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 Download Page KB3213646 for Microsoft Office 2007 Download Page KB3213641 for Microsoft Office 2007 Download Page KB3213649 for Microsoft Office 2007 Download Page KB4011063 for Microsoft Office 2007 Download Page After that I run Microsoft update and two patches, for IE 8 and system showed up. Everything installed, PC rebooted and didn't crash :>
  11. Adobe to Pull Plug on Flash

    On Windows 10 mobile, for example, you cannot play Flash games from within the browser, however, you can download many of them from the store - which means getting some web wrapper and playing them from within the app. Dunno how this works. Besides, I'm observing some things retro gaming/ emulation scene, and I have no doubt that someone is working to preserve flash games. Many of them were single player, so you can run them from local drives, so for this keeping older browser for this purpose +some internet archive would be enough.
  12. Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    First, we're going off-topic. If we wanted to go GNU/Linux, we know how, don't worry. Second, AntiX Linux is NOT Linux Mint.
  13. Except for .NET 1.1, right?
  14. Is ReFS ready for prime-time?

    You got me there Fixed.
