  1. Today
  2. Guys, please respect a bit the privacy of other people :-( Unauthorized photos in general are bad enough, but close-up mugs on the public web are a complete No-Go. And doesn't even make any sense at all when the subject are just "screen" shots. Cutting out parts of a photo with any simple, basic app, like IrfanView or even MS-paint, takes just a minute, and NO skills!
  3. Welcome to the MSFN! Make sure to read the site rules, especially the first bit. We operate a bit differently than mdl.
  4. The blue countertop makes me think it is a Napa.
  5. UPDATE! I have updated both the 38 ESR and 45 ESR versions of the UOC Patch. Please update and let me know how they run on your old machines! EDIT: Macintosh version updated as well.
  6. OpenSSL v1.1.1d for XP is now available. Only a few minor fixes since v1.1.1c, so it may not be worth the trouble to rebuild Python's Cryptography module with it, but here it is anyway, just in case.
  7. It's been a long time since I've used it, but I have an AGP Radeon 92xx card here that I previously used before I moved up to the 9800XT years ago. I know a working driver package for this card existed for 95*, but I don't remember any specifics of it. It should be possible to get this card up and running under 95* though. I doubt this card is the problem, *but once again my experience is based on OSR2. ON the other hand... after seeing you said "All-In-Wonder"; I do vaguely remember noting years ago that the system requirements on one of those older All-In-Wonder cards were different from the system requirements for the exact same normal Radeon 9xxx model. If you happen to have any other AGP or PCI video card, it may be worthwhile to do a test run with it instead of the All-In-Wonder. We can't say for sure this IS the problem yet, but if you have a way to test without it it could help rule it out. I understand completely.. my first machine had DOS and Win 3.1, but my next machine had 95 OSR2. I always preferred it.. hated 98FE with a passion. For a long time I refused to use 98SE because it changed IE from 4 that I was used to to 5 that had some minor difference that annoyed me (and now I can't even remember what exactly). I only moved to 98SE years ago when I hit this very CPU bug on my new P4 3.06GHz build. At the time I didn't know how to fix it, but at least I revenged myself on the problem years later. It may take me some time to dig further into this.. I've got some issues coming up this week that will prevent me from getting much done, but I've not given up. In the meantime, if you have the opportunity you can try some test runs with different conditions and see if anything changes. -Try a different video card if you have one (even one without 9x support). -Try disabling all onboard devices you can in the BIOS of the motherboard and reinstall. If it works, re-enable them one by one until you see the problem. -Try to get a BOOTLOG from the system.. this can be tricky as it's a hidden file and frequently gets overwritten. Bet way is to choose Logged boot from the menu, let the system crash, and then retrieve the file with another OS. This may give some idea of what exactly is crashing, although I'm not the best at deciphering them.
  8. Well, since you kindly located the TRIM sources for @xrayer, I do have a request, too, in case you can find a little time to spare: on July the 17th, RLoew reported he had found out the SCSI commands for changing the apparent sector size of WDC external USB disks (in the thread quoted below, from the quoted post onwards)... So, whatever source code and compiled programs related to this must be from not more than a couple of days before his initial post about it, and probably were one o the last things he worked on. I'd love to have a look on whatever you can find, either in source form, notes or test executables, in case any can be found. Sorry to bother, but it's a subject we all were just starting to pursue, and his were the 1st applicable results, so it'd be a great help to get them. Thanks in advance!
  9. Alright, that's cool! I'll also make sure to include a link to rloewelectronics.com when you get that up.
  10. Very. This part of New York State has a lot of Timmies. They built a Dunkin Donuts in town a few years ago, it gets almost no business. Tim's is packed to the road every morning. I hear they don't do so well most other places in the 'States, though. Might be how close I am to the Canadian border having to do with everyone here preferring Canada's Favorite Coffee.
  11. Yesterday
  12. How popular is Tim Hortons over there? Here the inner part of the cup lids is now maple leaf-shaped! They never attempted this gimmicky patriotic stuff when the company was actually Canadian-owned. Anyway, I announced that the operators of my college's cafeteria were moving away from XP in May. Indeed when the current semester started the XP box appeared to be in a state of network boot failure, presumably. They fixed everything a few weeks ago and now the cashier ignores the Windows 10 POS machine in favour of the XP one!
  13. Bitte nicht auf Deutsch posten! Nur Englisch ist erlaubt hier.
  14. I'm working on it right now, doing various tests. Once done I'll upload it. EDIT: 45 ESR version of the UOC Patch and Enforcer have been fixed. Please re-download and update!
  15. That reminds me: the typo in 45 line55 probably makes that all following lines are ignored. Had the same prob in my own personal files, and noticed it only accidentally, probably much later. Then invented a little trick to make it visible on about:config if the file was damaged: pref on top of file: pref("aaa.CHECK.mysettings.COMPLETE", "*** BROKEN! *** CHECK! ***"); pref at end pref("aaa.CHECK.mysettings.COMPLETE", "OK"); :-)
  16. While the 38 ESR version seems to behave as it should, I am working on the 45 ESR version, hoping I can iron it enough to squeeze some extra performance out of it. I still need to rewrite the Macintosh version. Please test the 45 ESR version of the patch and the Enforcer and let me know the outcome. Stay tuned!
  17. You are welcome to put something up. I just got the rloewelectronics.com domain that I'll put everything on as I sort it out. Reading your post, I think he had given me a copy of Borland's Turbo C compiler at some point. It does seem like he had some sort of custom handling of his includes.
  18. Size from over 40kB to 2-3kB, great! Finally. Am glad that this is now not a personal profile anymore, complete with all custom addons and custom install paths, but now really just focused on the prefs for the purpose :-) Now it's becoming more interesting, perhaps for myself too, after recently having run into black screens on another machine. When I get around, may try it... Just a bit typo remarks after taking a short look inside (not pref-related) patch45: at start of line 55 patch38+45: the first 2 comment lines start with #, that should be // for javascript (like in enforcer) patch38: the comment on top prohibiting to edit is a remnant from prefs.js, it doesn't belong into UOC. In general it would be helpful to also add a few comments to some of the single pref lines. E.g. for this: user_pref("browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand", false); Wondered if that may mean it's on, or off... not sure. But was just general interest, not for myself. Offtopic: sessionstore in general seems to be much more dangerous as one would assume. Even for hardware: have read the Firefox method is infamous for writing completely INSANE amounts of data to disk: even Gigabytes without any browsing, just idle, as some experts have tested. No wonder that lots of supposedly supermegarobust SSD-disks are self-destroying after 1-2 years, although manufacturers and fanatics still insist SSDs would live forever, at least 20years - ha ha... (And they also claim it were 1) harmless and 2) necessary for FF sessionmanager to write such amounts to store sessions, even without browsing... Insane or what?!) IIRC one of the victims of 1-year old dead SSDs was also the K-Meleon project. It crashed on our main dev, for unknown reasons, and when he tried to restore a backup, the backup disk got destroyed/formatted by modern Windows OS... Lost quite some work, and seems interest too, since afterwards the KM-development was completely dead again (until roytam came.) Have no clue if he used FF and sessionrestore or not, it's just yet another supposedly undestructable SSD living only a year.
  19. OK! All seems to be working well. I downloaded the .iso you linked me to, created a folder for it, expanded it, and was then able to browse for it and get the correct path into the box. Connecting to it in the guest works as it should. I now have a "z" drive that is accessible by the guest. Thanks for the help.
  20. Well after thinking about it, I have come to the conclusion, that (if desired by rloew's family) I have the resources to bring rloew's site back to life. I can update it to have current links to download his projects and stuff like that, as the web archive "sort by author" leaves a bit to be desired. I'll only do this if rloew's family is OK with it, it's only an invitation. But with that being said I'd be more than happy to do it if desired.
  21. hi, i just joined. -i use w7x64.and occasionally linux. have played with pc`s since 80386 days, -longtime mdl member. have a nice day.
  22. UPDATE! I have done an extensive modification on both the 38 ESR and the 45 ESR versions of the UOC Patch and the Enforcer. This has allowed me to drastically reduce the filesize (the UOC Patch and the Enforcer now are only 4kb large!), as well as improving the overall responsiveness of the browsers. Please update and let me know how your machine works after applying them! The only version I haven't touched yet is the Macintosh version, as I do not have access to my Mac Mini right now. Once I have access to it, I will port the updates to that platform as well.

    Win7 and openGL

    No idea about a linux host. Yes, should be at home folder. Or download the tools files yourself https://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/windows/index.html It's 10.3 tools currently at ESX. Use the Workstation Tools CD: http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/ws/15.5.0/14665864/windows/packages/ There is .tar image, expand the file. And connect the ISO file to a virtual CD drive.

    bora virus

    ... Commiserations . Had you taken diligent preventive measures in your OS (e.g. a reputed anti-malware/anti-virus third party suite, coupled with a responsible browsing behaviour), chances are you wouldn't have been infected - but then again, no Security Suite is foolproof... Out of curiosity, was Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) even installed and updated? Just to get this out in the clear, BORA is a ransonware with very strong encryption, so be prepared to part ways with your personal ENCRYPTED files... Slim chances do exist you can restore at least some of them, but... Every anti-malware software author has compiled at least one remove-BORA-infection tutorial on the net, this is what a simple G-search would reveal: https://www.google.com/search?q=bora+file+extension+virus&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 Follow your favourite one - be advised the more you use your infected computer, the less percentage of your original files you'll be able to recover (as they are being overwritten in your HD). Restoring an image back-up of your system and files (should that exist) is your safest bet - as far as I am aware, a simple System Restore (if enabled) won't "restore" personal files (like documents, e-mails, photos, etc...).
