  2. I'm waiting if their source are ready for compile by other people.
  3. IIRC XP SP1 was the last XP service pack that could support PAE....

    Problems accessing certain sites (Https aka TLS)

    Are there any problems with official SP3 and older SW? I have f.e. Visio Technical 5.0 or Micrografx Designer 7.1 that both works great under XP SP3 in compatibility mode. Old drivers for special adapter cards? May be...

    Audacity 2.3.0 fails to run on Windows XP

    You may want to include 'avformat-55.dll' also. It looks for this at startup; unfortunately the latest version of ffmpeg uses avformat-58.dll, so it doesn't find it
  6. True; the latest version of urllib3 that works with the latest version of Python that works with XP SP1 will likely include an older version of OpenSSL that may have security vulnerabilities that have been eliminated in the current version. So I wouldn't recommend it unless you absolutely need XP SP1 compatibility. But if you do, that may be the best you can do.

    That is not all to do, you need also the libraries / modules that are compatible with this 3.x version of python. Some of the actual versions dropped support for python < v3.4 (f.e. urllib3 and pyOpenSSL), you need also here the older versions. And older libraries have bugs and not the full functionality for actual TLS. That is why I look always for new versions of the libraries...

    It's like in Pokemon - become a champion and dare others to challenge you! So no, this is a recurring event
  9. I rarely use Win 98SE any more. I did try to put ProxHTTPSProxy on 98SE but the latest version of Python that runs on 98SE was too old to run it. (Python v2.7 IIRC) As for XP SP1, it might work; you'd need to figure out the latest Python 3 version that will run on it and try to compile it with that.
  10. RIP Stan Lee! The world won't be the same without you!

  11. Yes, the PM team will target Win 7; but @roytam1 has some experience in modifying their code for XP/Vista (don't forget Vista!), so at least there's hope.
  12. I hate when things break on update day. The natural inclination is to blame the update, but half the time it turns out to just be a coincidence. In this case, todoist.com no longer works with Abine's "Blur" tracking blocker add-on. (I can still block Google Analytics with Privacy Badger, though, so all is not lost.) They just happened to change it this AM, so it seemed like the 2018.11.10 build broke it. But when I reverted, it still didn't work, forcing me to dig deeper....

    HW RAID 1 vs SW RAID 1 vs incremental backup

    There is no problem with JBOD+RAID config as long as a RAID controller is an extension board. Just connect your system drive to MB SATA port and go on. In case of on-board RAID controller, yes, you need to check if it allow such a config. I think, there is no need to purchase 2 spare disks in advance for a mirror in home usage. In most scenarios, if you experience 2 drive failures at once or in a short time, you already lost part or all of your data, and the second spare disk on hand can't prevent this. Rebuilding of a 10 Tb volume on a low-cost system may take days, so you you may purchase another spare disk before it ends. Also, you definitely may use your RAID volume while it is rebuilding, if you need to. But it is highly recommended to not use it heavily, because this slows down rebuilding and so delay the time when your data will be "in safe" again.

    My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

    But you know that Interlink is only going to be Windows 7 and higher right? I'm OK with that, but I know your efforts with Basilisk and New Moon were XP-specific.
  16. I used this to tweak my firefox after v547 broke it: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/1.5.7 It's basically a bigass userchrome file (and some files required for tweaking). You edit the userchrome to tweak the GUI. It's how I firefox back to the way I like it.

    @heinoganda I tried UPX, but one file and also a build with the separate libraries doesn't change the situation at virus total (just one alert less with pyInstaller 331 or 34).

    If to win means we can't see anymore BSOD from around the world in this thread, then no. :p

    HW RAID 1 vs SW RAID 1 vs incremental backup

    You can use onboard RAID if you want but the controller would need to support JBOD+RAID. Because you say you want to use RAID1 for data and your other disk wouldn't. So in a RAID scenario, you'd have your OS on JBOD and the other two on the array. Not all controllers on retail boards can do this. And, to make matters worse, this information is not usually in the manual. You'd have to test it to see if you could add a single JBOD disk in addition to the RAID1, and still be able to boot on the JBOD. If you can't run in this scenario, then you should use a controller card for the array and leave your board on AHCI. If you are going to install Windows using Windows Setup (DVD install), I recommend that the RAID card or the disks are not connected until after the OS is installed. If you are going to go with a RAID setup, it is recommended that you purchase your replacement disks at the same time as the main ones. When a disk fails, you order a replacement for the replacement. The idea then is you have your spare disks (whatever the fail maximum is) ready and waiting. For a RAID1 I would say 2 disks. So to properly prepare for a RAID1 in your scenario would be to buy 4x 10TB disks, 2 for your array and the 2 replacements you keep on hand. You should not use the system when the RAID is in degraded or rebuilding. Using the system in this state, especially when you have lost half of your failsafe (1 disk in a RAID1, 2 in a 5, etc) is risky, and even if not in rebuild, data transfer in either direction, or the entire OS itself may become very slow. If you have the replacement disk available immediately at the time of failure, you will be able to maximize your uptime rather than having to wait for a replacement to come in the mail. I have never liked Windows mirror, but that is probably because of my experience with desktop and enterprise RAID controllers.

    How many people use XP

    Where do you get this 3.4% number from? This from 3 years ago? https://mspoweruser.com/windows-is-the-most-popular-operating-system-in-the-us-according-to-the-federal-government/ Which cites its data source as the US government, which then goes about to say this: "On November 8, 2016, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a memorandum on Policies for Federal Agency Public Websites and Digital Services, which requires federal agencies to implement the DAP javascript code on all public facing federal websites." That is how they get that figure. To be clear, the actual headline is not "Of Windows OSes that people use, 3.4% use XP" instead it would be "Of Windows OSes that visit US government websites and have javascript enabled, 3.4% of visitors use Windows XP, with a +/- percentage difference to those using XP (and not using XP) with modified user agents." There are two things that are immediately clear: 1. We can never know a nice number, such as the "50 of 45 million" in your question. Companies need their analytics, and the best way to determine OS usage (outside of malware) is to read browser User Agents. However, this method is severely limited and can never give an accurate number. 2. The common analytic method requires specific circumstances in order to be counted. It not only requires javascript and un-altered (or recognizable) user agents, but also requires that a person actively uses a web browser to go to a specific website. So it cannot count Windows XP computers that do not go to government websites, XP computers that do not go to any websites, and XP computers that are isolated or not connected to an external network/internet. So does that mean there are more than 3.4% of Windows XP computers out there? Yes and no. All of the reasons posted why a Windows XP computer would not get counted, while still existing and operational, are the same reasons why a computer with any other OS isn't counted. And then there are the ones that do get counted, but as other OSes due to how the information is gathered. It could be more, it could be less.

    Huh That is a problem, because where do I get the right libraries which will run under this old configuration. And run well, not with bugs. And do what they have to do. And I can't test it, I have no XP SP1 / SP2. Iit is better that you update your system with SP3. Why not?
