Link please.

I tried looking for the last half hour on my other pc for any remnants of my history and couldn't find anything. I can tell you I might have done a bit of digging into their background so it was not an easy task or the original page(s) to what I am citing is no longer up for whatever reason. I'm sure it's out there somewhere and I'll link if I ever find it again. Feel free to disregard my claim until then then..

I am sorry I have been gone for so long everybody, but I'm back now, hopefully for good. I had a death in the family, and it tolled on me extremely, along with some complicated projects outside of computing, as well as being locked out of my main building machine. I now have some more free time on my hands, and I recently picked up an old laptop that I could dedicate to building and testing on. I can't promise when I could get a build out, but work will be done slowly but surely. I have to get re-oriented with the code and build process, and where I left off. I haven't read the thread since I left, but I will tonight and answer any of your questions and concerns. Again, I am sorry that it took so long for me to work on this project, I really wish that I didn't fall off the radar like I did, but I'm back.

All is right in the world once again! Yay!!!

I'm sorry about what you've been through, but the most important thing is that you survived it, and now you can get back to life.

And, of course, welcome back! :)

Thank you all for the kind words. Some days are harder than others, but for the most part, I'm better than I was.

 

OK, now for a little status update.

Mozillla-build (the MINGW32 environment used to actually build the browser) has been acting up lately, so while I have had a few good builds with the existing (what's currently on GitHub) code, I have not been able to add to it as any changes I made would not be able to be committed to the GitHub. The issue being that I can't get make to actually respect the OBJDIR setting (the directory that the build files and binaries go in to) so right now, it's just building and dropping everything into the source tree (AKA making it impossible to use source control). I remember having a similar issue on my old build machine, but I can't remember how I fixed it. (I would love to go back into that machine and see, but I'm locked out) Once I get that sorted out, I will be able to actually start working. (And I will also put better build documentation in the root folder of the tree so this issue doesn't happen to anybody in the future)

I loaded up Opera 12.10 for fun a few days go.  Besides some glitches, it works for the most part on this forum.  And most sites were quite usable.  So would that not work well enough for Win9x?

The main issue with that is that to get Opera to work, you need KernelEx (which AFAIK only works on 98SE/ME),  I created RetroZilla for Windows 95 and NT4 and 98/ME users that don't wish to install KernelEx.
