  • I'd say you could classify anything older than 10 years as old. The trouble is that technology has progressed so much in certain areas and stagnated in others that 10 year old machines are still pretty usable even today. That wouldn't have been the …
  • Looks like A08 is the latest BIOS. I tried to track down an official CPU support list for that model, but my Google Fu appears to be lacking. This was the best I was able to dig up from other forums: D7459 Prescott P4 Kit, 520, 2.80G, 800FSB, 1MB…
  • Sounds like you'll need to update the BIOS to support the new CPU.
  • Man, I haven’t thought about this in years. I wanted to do this back in the day, but I never got it working. I imagine it would create a point to point connection between the two machines, then you would have to set up the manjaro machine as a ro…
  • Just use bridged and configure it as normal. The guest OS doesn't see the wireless card.
  • Those seem like pretty minor differences.
  • @robobox said: I hate both markdown and BBcode. Just give me plain text and use ** for bold and // for italic! Aren't you basically describing markdown?
  • Here's one of mine:
  • I tried 7 pretty early on. I don't remember if I used any previews / betas or just waited until the RTM release. But I definitely liked it better than Vista. It felt more polished and less sluggish and I initially tried it on my Thinkpad T40, so the…
  • I think you should just get a phone already. Whether it's two factor authentication, applying for jobs, making appointments, etc. you will need a phone for something at some point in order to function in our modern society. So there's no point in…
  • He uploaded an archive of the files of that drive: https://archive.org/details/sierra-super-junior
  • The reason people stuck with those OS's for so long is because that's what they had. Most people don't change OS's unless they get a new computer. Windows 10 has all the same stability of the previous versions. I rarely had BSOD's with XP or 7 or…
  • Strong passwords don’t help if it gets intercepted or if the site owner has a data breach.
  • There are other forms of two factor authentication. Personally, I prefer the standard OTP that's compatible with Google Authenticator. There are numerous compatible apps that work with it, including desktop apps. I used to use WinAuth and it worked …
  • 10 years is pretty ancient in the technology world. It's definitely pretty old at this point. It was good for the time, but that time has passed.

  • @nick99nack said: I wish laptops were thicker. I hate these really paper-thin laptops that break so easily when you drop them. My T430 is about perfect for me. Personally I’d rather have a thin laptop but with really nice build quality. W…

  • @win32 said: It was probably some subconsicous trick to make Windows 7 (and the hardware it runs on) far more antiquated than it actually is. Just like the chromebook ads with XP-style error dialogs and 9x blue screens. I'm sure it's a ve…

  • @nick99nack said: I wonder if they were popular enough for homebrew servers to appear, like what happened with AOL Instant Messenger. TIL third party AIM servers are a thing.
  • I think the tie in to stranger things may be a more likely explanation. But an open source release would be interesting I suppose. I wonder if there is any of that code still in Windows 10? @robobox said: Although MS-DOS Executive is probab…
  • I have to say, this does tickle my fancy. I do have a lot of nostalgia for 2000 and it was the first version of Windows I could say I really liked, even out of the box. But it really shows its age any time I've tried to use it and I always thought, …
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: And seriously I doubt any hacker will be interested in hacking into your PC only to steal your work documents or your family pics. That isn’t why they break in. Your identity is valuable. The fact that your PC isn’t t…

  • @nick99nack said: What version? It didn't work on this machine (Vista). Windows 10. Tested on 1809 LTSC. But I think it's been around a while. I believe the winkey + print screen thing worked on 8.1 as well, but I don't have a install han…
  • @win32 said: Debian automatically opens up a dialog which lets you save a png to a set destination. I don't have to go to start > accessories > paint then paste then save as a bmp/png. In Windows, you can use winkey + print screen b…
  • @win32 said: Microsoft doesn't want us doing lots of stuff. They'd like it if we exclusively run Windows 10, subscribe to Office 365 and use Microsoft Edge all while drinking Microsoft Milk. It’s not all bad. Windows 10 is ok as long as i…

  • They’ve stuck with the whole Windows 10 being the last version thing so far. Windows 10 (1903) now is not the Windows 10 (1507) that was first released in 2015.

  • I’m not surprised. They did it with XP back in the day and they’ll probably keep doing it. But you have to understand these popups are for the average joe that doesn’t know their OS is out of date and to try and make upgrading as easy as they can…

  • @win32 said: Too bad we can't have ultra-compact x86 laptops running win2k and able to connect to mobile networks to send/receive SMS and phone calls. Even if my T41/T60 could do that it would be a step up! SIP is your friend. H…
