  1. Twice I deactivated my account on Facebook, just because I couldn't delete my account. It is understood that a schizophrenic also suffers social withdrawal. True, I have no friends at all, in real life, sort of complete self-isolation and a little anti-social. On Facebook, however, one can add and delete a so-called "friendship". Do you think it hurts when I withdrawn myself from Facebook, just like I did in reality? Yes, it hurts. Wonder why such as fragile "friendship" that can be deleted, with family tie (if any) also be removed with a mouse click, can gain popularity in the communities on the line. What I wanted to say: While I frequently do this (withdraw myself socially) in the real life and give other no hints about my illness, why would Facebook formally deletes all friendship and notifies each of the "friends" miles-away when I withdraw myself from Facebook through account deactivation?
  2. Thank you very much for your opinions. Now, the English section of the message board is up. I have copy and paste your valuable opinions to there. Mental Disorder and Stigma: China and America
  3. Oh, I didn't know that it does happen in European country.....
  4. Thank you, ScrewUpgrading. You are so humorous.
  5. Thank you. What did you learn from this post?
  6. I see the connection behind it. I did not misunderstand your words. May I share your comments with that schizophrenic message board in China? They are going to set up an English message board so that we (just like this thread) can exchange information about mental disorders. Your view is valuable to me from the perspective of the society with diverse backgrounds just like America. I really am glad that you share this with me (and with us, later on)
  7. Description: Wait For a Mouse Event (Useful for Your Batch Programming)Screenshot: Please follow step-by-step as the screenshot shown below: Note:DEBUG is an internal DOS command. * There was a small mistake in the screenshot shown below. It should be 0Eh bytes instead of 0Ch bytes when specifying for CX register. 100 MOV AX,0003 103 INT 33 // Mouse Interrupt Call 105 CMP BX,01 // Left Mouse Click? 108 JNZ 0100 // Loop 10A MOV AH,4C // Exit to DOS 10C INT 21 You will notice new CLICK.COM file in the directory. After you run this tiny program, you have to click using your left mouse button on any part of the screen in order to continue (or return to command prompt)
  8. Thank you for your idea. I will visit a computer shop and ask for a DVD for Ubuntu (or any other Linux with friendly user interface).
  9. Hi, I am newbie, too. By the way, are you J.W.?

  11. I'd better give up. I just can't swap my new PC (and its motherboard) for old OS. If that is the case, I have to downgrade my computer hardware. I have wiped off my original Windows, completely. And the copy of Windows XP in this PC is not a genuine copy. That's why I am looking for a free OS, and my first option was Windows 3.11 / 95. Thank you for your help.
  12. We can't tell one's mental condition from his or her looks unless odd behaviour or disorganized speech is observed. For your information, I am one of them.
  13. Maybe with the populous citizens in China, employers can easily seek for suitable candidates. It is quite true. I think it is not about honesty under such circumstances, it is more about a friendlier approach. Do you mean volunteers who are paid to try out new drugs?
  14. Description: Converts plain text file to self-displaying .COM program. There are similar converters out there, but I reinvent the wheel. Note: Make sure your text file does not contain the dollar sign. (As "$" is reserved as the terminator string) Programming Language: Turbo Pascal and/or Assembly Language txt2coms.zip
  15. Description: My own compression technology identical to RLE (Run-Length Encoding) using frequency table with low compression ratio. Programming Language: Turbo Pascal compress.zip
  16. and I understand better now. I can't tell which is the better way.
  17. Me, too. Then I won't try Windows 3.11. Thank you for your advice. By the way, the new Intel Core i5 PC work with Windows XP.
  18. Thank you, jaclaz, for taking the initiative to answer my questions in my mind. Then it must be pirated copy on those illegal Web sites. Good! I like to hear that (reminder) from you. It is originally Windows 7 64-bit preloaded PC connected to DSL modem through cable. If Windows 3.11 not possible, how about Windows 95? You may ask why downgrading my original Windows. It is another story.
  19. I don't have a clue. I suppose after commercialized software have been abandoned for years (or decades), perhaps it would be offered as free download and use. (It happened to my favourite programming language Turbo Pascal 5.5) I googled for answer to this question, and I must admit that I did not go throught the search results one by one. However, I can't seem to find any clues by a quick glance at MSFN discussions. To my surprise, Windows 95 available as free download from what I supposed to be the illegal Web sites. Furthermore, I found out many MS-DOS 7.1 + WFW 3.11 startup disk available for free, as well as DOS + Windows 95 startup disk. Therefore, I need your quick answers, just two. (1) Is Windows 95 free? (2) Will I ever get those "MS-DOS 7.1+WFW 3.11" to work with my new PC and DSL modem? Thank you very much!
  20. I am curious, apart from Malaysia and China, how would the public from the rest of the worldd view those mentally ill, especially in developed lands? In China, as from what I understood from the schizophrenic over there, unemployment among the mentally ill are high, and to my surprise, employers list NO mentally disabled as one of the criteria in their job ads! I am surprise because it does not, al least until now, happen in my mother country, Malaysia.
  21. Hello everybody. I was seeking for solution and then came across to this message board. Being an ethnic Chinese in multi-cultural country, that is, Malaysia, please excuse me for my broken English (yes, they call it Manglish) In the past, until today, I NEVER use other OSes than Windows (and, of course, DOS), except Symbian OS programming. It it interesting to join an international (and Microsoft's) message board, as we like or not, those computing technology that we are using everyday (as simple as Google search engine, or as complicated as Remote Desktop connection) are from the West in large portion. So, it means, I speak your language using your terminology, to those from the Western world.
  22. I am new to this message board, the first thing I would do is share with you some of my old DOS programs. Attached are COUNTER.ZIP and ADDRBOOK.ZIP. Both run OK even in Windows XP without compatibility issues. What is COUNTER: In addition to this small snippet, I have something more professional, the ADDRBOOK.ZIP Read what reviewer said about this menu- and/or mouse-driven program. Yes, the TP7 source code also included in the ZIP file. addrbook.zip counter.zip These little .COM program are useful in your batch file. PRESS.COM - Wait until user press any key to continue (Another version) CLICK.COM - You may have well heard "Press any key to continue", but this one offers "Press left mouse button to continue..." BEEP.COM - As its name implies... BIOSDATE.COM - Print on the screen BIOS manufacture date. Ltautils.zip
