  1. Is ME really that bad?

    You know better than that.... LoL .... You are going to start a war for being politically correct. Never really got the chance to play with Vista but have heard many compare it to Windows ME. WinME did have some nice features that was lacking in Win98/SE.
  2. Censor Internet Images

    Government always trying to control and dictate the lives of the human race. Just like we vote them in, let's vote them out.
  3. I agree with Tommy, haven't seen nothing original on the net in a long time. I'm tempted to leave the computer world altogether. Stuff gets boring after while.

      You couldn't be more right. I remember when computers used to be fun and exciting. Now it's all about...blandness and just pushing upgrades left and right. And now for the most part, home use for computers have gone to where people think "famous" screenshots with words are funny....or watching videos that have no point or meaning and laughing at it like it's the funniest thing in the world. Maybe that's why we love older things, because it reminds us of a better time in general.

      Indeed.  I used to be totally amped up and excited to even upgrade a piece of software.  Or look on the market and try everything.  Or code.  Or play the newest game.  You get it.  It's all just gotten so boring it's unreal.  Of course, I haven't found anything fruitful to do with all of it (employment, can't even find work in anything I can do or general interest - get exceedingly little interest in anything I've shared or offered to do), so I've drifted to other interests and drifted off this site for most part (I still read every once in a great while).  Was good while it lasted, but not sure I can rekindle any kind of interest in it at all outside of regular daily use consistent with my other interests and the occasional classic game.



      I'm starting to watch more tv (classic shows) Seinfeld, Good times, Frasier etc... Netflix are starting to add some good content. I'm losing my passion for technology. My neighbor gave me a 50 inch smart tv because he didn't want to deal with it. I have to use a tablet or phone to control it. It nice but when my internet is down it's useless.

  4. Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

    Do you plan to continue updating for Win9x?
  5. MSFN will be online one more month! (Until Sept-12)

    Some of you guys I would like to keep in-touch with. I can be reached here https://www.techtalk.cc/index.php You don't need to register or anything, just shoot me a PM and let me know who you are. Thanks. We need to archive every page on here in the wayback machine. So much will be lost.....
  6. Xbox360 Controller Driver for Win98

    It should work for all games if properly installed. You need to install DX9, the USB pack in the SP or NUSB and remove all USB drivers in safe mode and let them re-detect.
  7. I have qemu and its a little more complicated than VirtualBox. Technically, the games I play are Spades, Freecell etc..... Those games come in handy when I'm taking a 2 hr flight. I haven't got everything setup the way I want, but things are coming along nicely. I will be triple booting Win XP, Win 7 SP1 and Linux Slackware with a VM of Win98 SE on all of them.
  8. I use Win9x for older software purposes, nostalgia and networking. Don't need a newer browser on the machine because I run Slackware Linux for that. My windows 98 SE machine did everything I needed it to do. Outlook Express, movies, music, games ,Remote Desktop to my WinXP Pro etc.... My next project is getting Win9x running in VMs. Working flawlessly as possible, its a hell of a task. Once all the older hardware becomes obsolete, we are not going to have much of a choice but to use VMs. That's why I'm getting a head start now. After Win 7, I will never upgrade to another Windows unless for monetary reasons. I'm done with the new Windows.
  9. Making Win98SE work

    I have been preaching this for a long time. Some people think when you click, it just installs a bunch of my personal tools etc... 99% of the tools/options are MICROSOFT. I tried my best to keep 3rd party apps out, I even removed a bunch. Its only a couple in there, but other than that its all MICROSOFT. I gave people the option to choose what they wanted and some still complained. The Linux community isn't any better. But thank you for noticing, I believe you are the first to point it out. After 6 years, its still going strong and only had a few issues with a handful of users. Its safe to say its stable.
  10. Windows ME Service Pack

    Great work!!! Wish you the best in your endeavor.
  11. In case the user(s) are using other outdated options. Why do you even care if he/she updates or not?
  12. You need to update to the latest version. 3.57 Nothing major.
  13. WannaCrypt

    I'm still here, lurking in the shadows.
  14. Nothing is checked by default. You get to choose what to install. Its 42 options and none are checked.
  15. MSFN not compatible with Palemoon?

    I'm posting with Pale Moon now!!!!
