  1. Actually not by the company that sells 'Security', as the paper itself looks professional, but by the clickbait-driven Mass Media that refer to it, all of them linked the first post.
  2. Thanks for giving an answer proposal, but we both know I wasn't asking you The difference is that you posted some uses of such adapters, while Original Poster didn't... well, actually he asked for them, which makes your cases differ at a crucial point
  3. I'd start from asking, why have you bought such a device, without knowing what it can be used for? A hobbyist, collector of mysterious converters and adapters, or you just felt sad for 'em cables laying around useless and lonely?

    What Are You Listening To?

    Soon seeing live again: https://tidesfromnebulaofficial.bandcamp.com/track/tragedy-of-joseph-merrick-2 If you are wondering how it sounds and looks live, our beloved govs decided to sponsor a site that posts footages of polish bands. See and listen: https://ninateka.pl/film/tides-from-nebula-made-in-polska But actually, all that I've been to sounded better than this one

    Browser for XP

    Don't forget Basilisk for XP, also by Roytam1 ->author of NewMoon
  6. Askwoody.com reported windows 7 update had issues when not installing Servicing Stack Update from 2016. It was optional back then, now It's mandatory. also, Microsoft took down and re-uploaded KB4462923 security Rollup, because there were some bugs in it. https://www.askwoody.com/2018/win7-monthly-rollup-kb-4462923-updated-and-rolled-out-again/ What I'd try, is to use System Restore Point and roll back to the point form before October 2018 patches were applied on your machine. After that, re-run Windows update, it should find updates automatically. I hope it should. If you don't have a restore point that Old, try to uninstall November 2018 and October 2018 patches and try to update your system again. Obviously, do a full backup before playing with Windows Update. use any program available and they should work... Even the one embedded into Windows 7 should do it's job ------------------------- +1 There are three groups of people: Those who do a backup, those that does not, and those that are about to learn they are doing their backups badly. Hopefully, when the need came, I found myself in group #1, which makes me a bit proud.

    It's like in Pokemon - become a champion and dare others to challenge you! So no, this is a recurring event

    Best site and happy computing

    Don't be so shy, you can find a lot of people calling themselves "IT Proffesionals" who can't do a thing with any hex editor Hope you'll have a good time in here

    Do I Win now?:
  10. Probably got lost in database error, sometimes called as "MSFN Board memory hole".
  11. Well, read about it already. As more of the new malware will rather be developed for newer systems, let's hope signatures will be enough.

    Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    Fun fact continues, because here, in Poland, free calls onto both cellular and stationary phones from mobile phones, just included in subscription, became nearly a common standard[2]. What is so fun (for me) in this case, is that as we usually try to reach richer, western European countries, but the standard of cellular phoning or internet subscriptions is said to be fairly faster and cheaper than in those countries. I actually had a visit of a friend from nearby Torino this year who complained how bad this particular thing look like in his area compared to what he sees in here. Sorry for off-topic, but I had to express my national pride Some sort of positive feedback phenomenon - this board has many people attracted to (and maintaining!) old systems and software, so it generates more content in this matter, which attracts more and more old-system lovers, who talk more about old systems which leads into creation of specific milieu, social capital, local culture where old systems take a significant place, and their criticism is nearly haram. There is no problem in finding boards that attracts lovers of newer systems more, but they probably don't gather together so many XP-lovers in one place... oh, and hey, try to argue about any sort of XP-above-W10 superiority over these places Yes, but... As i told earlier, I started using Basilisk by Roytam1 on my XP machine. Yet still, it lacks seamless automatic update, and people reported problems with language packs, and as it will be also used by my relatives, the latter one is a muss. And as much as I admire (truly!) Roytam1's work, I'd love to have these two features without reading hundreds pages of comments, and FF 52 ESR had it

    Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    No offence intended, and I even put a smiling emoticon at the end to mark I'm not totally serious in this one. sorry if this got misunderstood. Only thing you 'manipulated' me into was replaying once again in this topic, despite I started from saying that we shouldn't discuss that once again, as quoted below: Hope explains my intentions.

    Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    Deepest hatred towards two phenomena, fashion and planned obsolence, and I see elements of both in comments like quoted above Because, actually, why it should? And who decided that. I have nothing against improvement or development, but here I see more a sake for the sake of change. Especially seeing that Roytam1 and other lone Rangers can keep it living. Yes, I'm moving to Basilisk XP on my machine. Just note that I mainly use Windows 7, and I'm totally happy with lesser memory usage in Firefox since 53. But i also would like to keep my XP useful and secure for as long as possible. Just like some people like old Mustangs instead of new, hackable, electronics packed cars. And I share my opinion when asked for. Is THIS hard to understand? However, I give you a credit for manipulative skills, as I should not answer to you in this topic ^^ Lets just assume that there is a bunch of people that simply like using XP more than other windows systems, and that should be the most high-level and appropriate answer to any your future question in the topic
  15. Isn't windows NT 4.0 better for such machine :F But seriously, You can find a list of latest possible updates for systems without SSE2 somewhere in this thread, but without SSE and MMX? I don't remember anyone in this board mentioned that, sorry :/
