  1. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    Found XP running at the front desk at the local bowling alley. I tried several times to get a picture but my phone Reeeeeeeally does not like to focus on screens at a distance more than point-blank. (I will try again eventually) Heres the best I got: The little screens over by the lanes that show your score appear to be running MS-DOS. The first lane we tried to use was evidently having an issue:

  3. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    TWO XP sightings today! First one was at the Brockport, NY CountryMax ( a farm/pet supply store). It was on a cash register. Interestingly, the other two registers ran 7 and 10, leaving none with the same OS. No picture for this one, sorry, the cashiers were conveniently in the way. The second was Windows XP Embedded at Wegmans (Grocery Store) In Brockport as well, on a scale. Amusingly it was stuck logging on. They have many scales there, they probably run XP embedded as well.

    Happy new year too!
  5. It says VFC above it and AMC (ATI Multimedia Channel) to the side and below it in your picture. It is an extension by ATI of the VESA Feature connector. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature_connector https://web.archive.org/web/20050210035518/http://www.ati.com/support/faq/amcvip.html Note that they say you CANNOT use an IDE cable (Assuming you even had an appropriate device to hook to it): But perhaps you can....
  6. Would an object like this be of use? https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCI-32bit-Dual-PS2-PS-2-Card-PC-Keyboard-Mouse-PCI-2Ports-PS-2-without-USB-/181671723885 Or would that require a driver the Windows 2000 installation would not have at Install?
  7. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    Windows POSReady 2009 has been spotted at a Canoe Shop in Rochester, New York. I am responsible for it being there, I am involved with the business and that was their loaner system until I got them their new Windows 7 PC up and running to replace a dead HP AIO. Dell Dimension 4700 if anybody's curious
  8. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    It seems to be different in the Finger Lakes Region. Here they all run Windows 7 with the classic theme.
  9. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    Windows XP has been spotted on the local news (Fox Rochester) No picture, it was just probably stock footage from years ago, as it showed the old Google logo.

  12. Well, the United States is losing its Net Neutrality, The FCC has voted 3-2 to remove the rules. It sounds like there is still some hope, there's congress and stuff, and talk that the FCC could be sued. https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/14/16776154/fcc-net-neutrality-vote-results-rules-repealed

    Welcome! As Trip hinted, make sure to read the rules. (http://www.msfn.org/board/guidelines/)
