    /me shoots Saber a dozen times, douses his corpse with fuel, lights him on fire, and then defecates on the ashes.

    What the f*** is wrong with you son?!?! Haven't I taught you anything? Your mother and I are very disappointed in you... :toofar:

    I received my HDD yesterday, which i surprising since it was supposed to arrive Friday. Yayness, right? Thing is I haven't got yet a SATA cable for it. I've only got one for both the HDD and DVD... :rolleyes:

    Meh, gonna buy the damn cable today, if I'm lucky the new graphic card I ordered should arrive today. So, I'm gonna spend the evening installing hardware/OS/drivers/softwares. Should take most of it.

    It just hit me the other day that uni, work and the missus have reduced my BoM time to almost nil.

    Such is life i guess.

    Back to the books!

    I'll have to agree with Saber actually. The list of old games that I cannot get to run grows daily, specifically those from the Windows 98 era. Old tricks like keeping a partition with XP SP1 and DirectX 8 no longer work and, being later Windows games, these won't run under DOSBox + Windows 3.1 (they would be far too demanding even if they did).

    Well dad, I am feeling nostalgic and want to play games that can only be played on pre-XP systems. Haha is Windows 95 any better?

    I have a grey brick of a laptop with windows 95 on...I had to remove the battery though cos it would get burning hot (hot enough to melt clothing) within about 15 minutes of being on. I keep it so I can play Chaos Gate :) I love that game wish I could get it working on XP but its impossible! :(

    /me picks up laptop with Vista on it and runs as far away as possible...

    Let me put it this way - even Millenium had more redeeming features than 95. That says it all!

    Haha, you guys are brutal! What is wrong with early versions of Windows? I was too young to be tech-savvy enough to understand how much Windows sucks (these days, at least).

    Oh, and I installed Windows 3.1 via DOSBox so I can play my old games. So I got it all figured out, no need to kill me and defecate upon my ashes.

    Well this sucks. I've finally been able to install my new HDD, DVD drive, and Graphic card (Sparkle geforce 9400GT) as well as XP. But after about 2-3 minutes it just crash and gives me a bloody blue screen of death The joy!

    Well, let us start with the first (of many) problems you will see. On Win98, if someone has the computer password protected...you simply press Esc to get around it.... :doh:

    I'm quite sure that's because you didn't buy your stuff via SP's links. ;)
