Everything posted by jaclaz

  1. It would have been EXTREMELY difficult to discuss the matter on a board hosted on an expired domain. Nuno forgot/missed a renewal deadline by one day or two. Everything is back to "normal". jaclaz
  2. I remembered it wrongly, 2K has WFP allright: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/description-of-the-windows-file-protection-feature-db28f515-6512-63d1-6178-982ed2022ffb Anyway, it can be disabled: https://www.mdgx.com/2k1.htm#DFP but there was another way by Fred De Vorck, and yet another one making use of an empty SFCFILES.DLL https://web.archive.org/web/20110929040602/http://www.vorck.com/windows/software.html https://web.archive.org/web/20110717232512/http://www.vorck.com/windows/data/sfcfiles.zip jaclaz
  3. Hmmm. Protected by what exactly? WFP was introduced in XP, AFAICR, Win2k should be free from that. <- Edit: Brain fart, disregard. Maybe you are having some kind of (NTFS) ACL permissions, if I were you I would first try the *whatever* you are trying to do on an install on FAT32. Only for the record, my idea of "specific" is a little more narrow than "Internet Explorer files in Win 2K", in some cases (but shouldn't be yours) it is possible to replace file contents by using direct disk access. jaclaz
  4. You talkin' to me? Yes , it is more than 20 years that I boot systems and replace their files (though not professionally, only as a hobby). But there are good system files and bad system files, so it all depends, if you need advice/help you will need to be specific. jaclaz
  5. I suspect that if he specifies Chelsea he will get a Russian flag instead ... @FranceBB ... and all this time I thought you were an AirBnB superhost jaclaz
  6. For the Registry association (has to be tested) probably something *like* cmd /c pause | ... might work, you first open a command prompt, and when already in it you inject via pipe the pause to the pgp.exe. jaclaz
  7. @Trip I already tested specifically the mentioned program and nothing is parsed after the gpg --verify <filename> command, hence the workaround via pipe. jaclaz
  8. It is strange. Anything after the gpg command is ignored, it ignores even redirection to a file. A way out is: cmd.exe /k gpg --verify %1 but you will have to close the command window with the mouse on the right top cross button or type exit on command line (which becomes without prompt). This is ugly but it works like your current one: pause | cmd.exe /k gpg --verify %1 only you won't have the Press any key prompt, still by pressing any key the cmd window will close. This: @echo off prompt Press any key to continue ...&&pause | cmd.exe /k gpg --verify %1 should emulate your current behaviour. jaclaz
  9. Get a decently old version of netscan (freeware), *like*: https://web.archive.org/web/20110527051122/http://www.softperfect.com/download/freeware/netscan.exe or a similar tool, identify the devices connected to your network, find the duplicate. There are basically two ways to setup IP addresses the good/ol' one (static IP addresses manually assigned to devices) and the new, modern, smart one (using a DHCP server to assign IP addresses to the connected devices). The first one works nicely in small networks as long as there is someone keeping the devices correctly settled. The second works nicely most of the time and is actually more or less *needed* for Wi-Fi, BUT (since it costs nothing) every single stupid device has usually a DHCP server so it is not so uncommon that two DHCP servers are active at the same time, potentially creating conflicts depending on when/which device is switched on or that some user decides to set a static IP manually. You need to understand, as Tripredacus said, how the network is setup and act depending on what you find, no way to know what exactly may be the problem without knowing exactly how your network is setup/which devices are connected to it (and how they are configured), for small networks (like I believe it is your home/family one) it is easy to check the settings of each device manually. jaclaz
  10. https://web.archive.org/web/20051227075035/http://wittswallpapers.com/Oldies/displayset.zip This is actually the Wayback Machine of a link originally posted by cannie. jaclaz
  11. The winnt.exe /ox was for NT, does it work on 2k also? on 2K .iso there is a \bootdisk directory that contains the 4 floppy images and the makeboot and makebt32 executables (to create the floppies). jaclaz
  12. I know , though what I meant was more that a Wayback Machine link should be more "reliable" (in the sense of "safer") than *someone's* blog that points to *some* file hosted on mega.nz or yadi.sk (no offence whatever intended for the good guy(s) that managed to keep the file available, but better be safe than sorry as a general rule ). jaclaz
  13. Yep. Should be available (it depends on version) also via Wayback Machine: https://msfn.org/board/topic/175965-windows-2000-wireless/ http://web.archive.org/web/20071010213632/http://www.boingo.com/downloads/BW1201/boingoinstaller.exe jaclaz
  14. What you need is a supplicant https://msfn.org/board/topic/158547-wifi-with-wpa-support-windows-2000/ This is about your "last" chance: http://w1.fi/wpa_supplicant/ jaclaz
  15. @FranceBB I wonder what is the use of the post-it with KL4665 on it jaclaz
  16. Never tried it for so long, but surely 1 full week. I changed the battery last year because it started to last "only" three days. The original battery is BL-5CB , that goes in a few other models (that has less capacity than the more common BL-5C): https://pinoutguide.com/CellularPhones-A-N/nokia_bl-4c_battery_pinout.shtml jaclaz
  17. You are welcome. Yes, very early ones were like that, later ones were "light" like the other common brands ones. Actually almost all of them, a series of power supplies came with the "large" round pin and an adapter to "small" round pin, and was almost universal. BTW, in their simplicity, round pins can still be rotated 360° (as opposed to USB Micro-B which 0° and the - much enhanced - USB C 180°) it was practically impossible to make torsion wrinkles on cables. jaclaz
  18. There are a few still available here in Italy (JFYI): https://www.cellulareaccessori.com/cover-nokia-3100-cover-blu-blister-originale-p-28.html https://www.cellulareaccessori.com/tastiera-nokia-3100-tastiera-originale-p-431.html I doubt that they send stuff abroad, but if you are interested I could act as proxi. And yes, good ol' Nokias are still good ol' Nokias, mine is still going strong: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_1280 jaclaz
  19. In case of need http://www.marriedtothesea.com/030306/gracious.jpg jaclaz
  20. Unless you have (or need) huge amounts of memory 32 bit would do nicely, XP64 - from what I read, never used it for enough time to have an own opinion - seems like a "hit and miss" game, on some hardware it works fine on some other has lots of issues that - though probably solvable - are more difficult than 32 bit because 64 bit is much less popular. jaclaz
  21. You probably want both coa2 and registrar lite. Coa2: https://www.pcmag.com/archive/change-your-address-4491 http://digilander.libero.it/rareware/coa2.zip Registrar Lite (version 2.x) is hard to find as the good guys at resplendence have excluded their pages from being archived on Wayback Machine, very likely the "current" Registrar Registry Manager 9.20 would do anyway: https://www.resplendence.com/downloads Just in case latest-latest doesn't work, good ol' one can still be found here: ftp://tasha.eecs.umich.edu/95/reglite.exe jaclaz
  22. Didn't you find the memo? It has been sent to the workshop for periodical inspection and tuning, should be back in two to twenty two weeks (the crystal ball used to forecast tuning time is currently foggy and will be next one to be checked). jaclaz
  23. Yeah, sure, wireless USB. Solving the problem of 0's jamming (only for the record): https://msfn.org/board/topic/154863-the-meta-sata-pataphysics-of-usb-transfer/ jaclaz
