  1. Thanks for the hint @RainyShadow, i created a userContent.css entry for the MSFN domain and will eventually make it available from the RetroZilla Community Edition thread. Didn't realize '@forum_member' was white on white. So far i've hacked something that displays '@forum_member' names, makes all white text visible, shrinks oversized/stretched avatar pictures and properly box wraps quoted text from previous posts (otherwise very confusing). Still no member signatures, needs tweaking but low priority. Forum member @Siria posted lots of info about this topic, will review this too. Spending time with modern browsers makes one realize how broken most sites appear in RetroZilla. By the way @Mr.Scienceman2000, your screenshot above is not visible in RetroZilla even with JavaScript enabled. I did see the picture on a newer system, thank-you for posting, always great to see other's setups. Thank-you also for your other posts and information. I meant a 200 MB MP4 file was big in the Windows 9x era for processing, not drive space, back when anything over 64 MB RAM was lots. For me MPlayer (not Windows' media player) is still the leanest for daily usage. Agreed on the smartphone, adds another layer of complexity that can lead to breakdown. Being without a phone for even a single minute makes me laugh, i am not overly social to begin with but there are many days my flip phone doesn't get turned on. I wish you well @Gansangriff with your FrogFind contribution. Maybe i'm wrong, looks like the project currently uses Google, so evil. Thanks for your contribution @ArcticFoxie, mental health and social media is a big issue, amongst so many big issues. A neighbour was so distracted last year, using her smartphone in the driveway before taking off, she almost hit a kid riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. Middle of the day, good visibility, big/tall enough kid, mother nearby. This is getting really crazy. Your system with 98Lite is vanilla enough @Mr.Scienceman2000. The 'vanilla' nomenclature started for me during an episode of much frustration over what software versions actually ran on a default Windows 98 install. The forum was littered with many confusing posts of systems running KernelEx or various upgrade pack combinations. So to me you've stripped Windows 98 further, whatever runs on your system should probably run fine on my 'vanilla' system. Your hardware and software tweaks are cool and amazing, should make for an extremely efficient and functional system. Two additonal Dillo web browsers were recently tested (downloads dillo-win32-3.0p9.exe and dplus-0.5b-setup.exe). Unfortunately one was buggy (crashed) and the other had limited TLS support, no longer functional on today's internet. Hopefully these projects will revive. I install Dillo as a lightweight, backup browser on my personal GNU/Linux systems, most times it's good enough.

  2. combine that with stupid peoples who blindly rely on driving assists and sensors. I had one near crash with Tesla roadster. Driver was likely on assisted driving mode since was tapping her phone and not touching wheel. She was behind yellow triangle meaning I had priority pass it first, but car pulled front of me. Was able to stop luckily before hit, but was too close call. Driver dropped her phone and went panic when I slammed horn to warn from impact. If you are so focused to your phone or anything else on car since rely on driver assists that you are scared when hear horn, you done something terribly wrong. Peoples have reached point where they blindly trust electronics since "computers never do mistakes unlike humans". Computers are coded by humans and contain human mistakes. I am not saying all are bad and useless, traction control and anti lock brakes are useful here on cold slippery winter and helped me few times when took off or braked too hard on ice, but I do not trust them blindly and understand they can malfunction. Humans are not perfect, but neither are machines. And human got something computer wont, ability to question learned things. Sometimes creativity is only way solve/survive things If their device would tell them jump off roof they likely would because computers cannot be wrong

  3. Title edited. Sorry for the typo :) powercfg /H OFF|On both gives: System does not support hibernation powercfg /devicequery all_devices_verbose gives long list; what to look for? The list is like: Enumerating Device: 006 =================== Device Information: DeviceName: PS/2 TrackPoint HardwareID(s): ACPI\IBM3780 *IBM3780 Device Present. Device is not capable of waking the system.
