  1. Of course. But even I who am very aware of such EoS dates (even if they don't mean much to me, since I keep using Word 2000 and Acrobat Reader 9.5.5, not to mention Shockwave and Silverlight 5.1.50918.0) was somewhat taken aback when the latest Chrome (on Win 8.1, at work) started nagging more than one year in advance. Of course I'll keep Flash on my machines! And it'll be a "long goodbye", no doubt, but it's sad, even when one believes firmly that EoS != EoL, like I do, to see such a good piece of software being put away like a rabid dog, isn't it?
  2. You wanted to be helped in less than 24h? Really?
  3. Well, announcements of EoS are becoming more and more common all the time, so this one should be no surprise at all but, in any case, heads up: https://www.blog.google/products/chrome/saying-goodbye-flash-chrome/
  4. Here is a regrouping place for when RyanVM.net members need to communicate and that board is unavailable for any reason.
  5. No idea... then again, I'm positive whatever @Goodmaneuver smoked sure was good!!!
  6. No need to. Windows Embedded POSReady 7 is directly compatible to common 7 (so no hack needed at all). And it reaches EoS at Oct 12, 2021... so almost two years more to go, although without WU/MU: one'll have to go to the MS Update Catalog to get the (one or two) rollups each month... no big deal, IMO, but, of course, there'll always be those who'll say it's a life-changing nuisance!.
  7. Avoid Google Translate and use DeepL, instead: the result will be much better understandable text. My 2¢ only, of course.
  8. Although it's not my day-to-day mobile (which remains being a Nokia C2-01), I do have a basic smartphone for the few situation in which it's really needed (regretably). It's a 3 year-old SAMSUNG GALAXY J2 Prime SM-G532M (Global Single SIM). If I connect its micro-B connector to any of my XP machines, it's promptly recognized, and I can access both the micro-SDHC inside it and the phone memory using WIndows Explorer,without any special software being necessary. However, in fact, it does not get a drive letter, being accessed via Media Transfer Protocol, but I don't see that as a problem in any way. Moreover, it's powered by a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 (an in-order CPU), so it's not vulnerable to Spectre/Meltdown. And last, but not least, it's relatively inexpensive, as opposed to many fridge/freezer combo priced smartphones that usually are the 1st they try to push on one. My 2¢, of course.
  9. This thread is now locked! It continues in the thread pointed to in the post just above this one.
  10. @schreiberstein +1: Thanks a lot! And, BTW, welcome to MSFN! It's great to have you around!
  11. Thanks a lot! BTW, you're right: it's not it. I guess the best way would be to serch by date 1st, starting not earlier than July the 1st... he sure edited that source along the way, so probably the last version was modified and compiled after July the 17th or around it... I have no hurry at all, do take your time, and thanks for your help! You do rock!
