  1. Confirmed! Well, it will be permanently offline eventually, but when that will happen is anyone's guess... Agreed. I know there has been an attempt at reverse engineering WU v4 for use with Windows 9x and ME, but I don't think it has gotten far. Fortunately, though, in anticipation, many updates have already been archived in various languages, so not all is lost, but it would definitely be a shame if updates for some of the less common languages get lost to time. c
  2. Agreed. As you say, at least there's still the catalog! For now, anyway.... c
  3. Is it possible that this could be a temporary outage? It's happened before, so maybe? c
  4. Well there you go! If he can do that, why can't someone write a similar tool which runs within Windows NT (instead of DOS) and operates on NTFS? The basic operating principles can't be too much different, can they? In other words, TRIM is TRIM, regardless of OS or filesystem, because it's an intrinsic function of the drive itself. c
  5. I find it somewhat odd that no one has yet made a generic TRIM support package which is XP compatible and works with all SSDs. Surely the protocols are standardized enough for this to be theoretically possible? Unfortunately, I don't presently have the knowledge to make such a thing happen, but someone around here must? c
  6. Does "IA32 Win32" mean it will run on non-SSE2 CPUs? By the way, which one of these represents the Serpent 55.x branch? The logic w/re how versioning works here is escaping me somewhat at the moment (not enough sleep ) c
  7. Huh, interesting. In that case, is there a setting somewhere which can change that allocation? Or maybe some lines in the source code (if available)? My home connection gets at best ~350kB/s anyway, so it's not likely to hurt me much, but it would nevertheless be nice to know if it can be somehow changed. c
  8. To alleviate this problem somewhat, it is possible for Burp to be run on another PC which is configured as a proxy server to the Win98 PC? I ask because it's possible that the slowness is due to the Win98 networking stack's inherent architectural inefficiencies, which are being exacerbated by running Burp via Java 8 on KernelEx. c
  9. @loblo How'd you accomplish this?! c
  10. It often amazes me how easily some of you find such hard to find files! These ones, of course, aren't obscure by any means, but they have nevertheless been rendered quite hard to find since Intel apparently took them offline, and most of the "driver-finder" sites link back to Intel's copy of the files it seems. *sigh*... A few weeks ago, I tried to find Windows XP Intel Management Engine drivers for a laptop of mine (Dell Latitude D630C), and couldn't (most everything was for 7 and up). Ended up not mattering though,a s I simply turned the ME off, and the missing devices disappeared OK, enough thread hijacking. Carry on! c
  11. I've tried 7-Zip 19.xx, and it seems to generally work OK (GUI, extracting and compressing). The GUI is a bit weird in that most strings in some dialogs are cut off, but the buttons seem to work. This is with KernelEx 4.5.2 and all recent updates on Win98 SE. c
  12. @flyod Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration within the browser? The setting for it is in the advanced tab. c
  13. That's too bad, for I've seen examples of when Matt Tobin actually can be decent (the thread about finding permanent names for roytam1's browsers, for example). I think it's just that, for whatever reason, he seems to get impatient very easily and apparently has a bit of a temper. Even so, Seamonkey's email client is integrated within the browser suite, and it is nice to have it as a standalone program à la Thunderbird for those who don't want the whole SM suite just for the email client, so we can give him credit for that, if nothing else. Anyway, my main OS is macOS 10.13 from 2017 right now, and Polymer 2 is in no danger of being unsupported there. However, I do still dabble with NT5.x (and do occasionally use it as my primary OS, depending on need), so it'd be nice to have a browser there which supports it and isn't sponsored by either Google or the Chinese government (I don't trust Chrome or its China-based derivatives to respect any privacy settings whatever, at least not without extraordinary means; other Chromium-derived browsers (such as modern Opera) are probably OK, but none of those run on NT5 to my knowledge, so....). I dunno, maybe I'll give one of the Chinese chromiums a try, for they might not be as bad as I'm fearing they are w/re privacy (or maybe it's more easily manageable via HOSTS or other such tweaks than I'm thinking?). So to that end, which ones of the lot are most current and recommended? c
  14. Thought so! I like to know what I'm using, how it works and why, so I'm glad I figured it out successfully in this case! Anyway, back to the topic at hand (sorta), I use Transmission on Mac all the time, as it is the only BT client I've used (for Mac, anyway) whose UI is sensible and easy to use. i knew it also supported Linux, but until today, I didn't know (or had forgotten) that there was a Windows port that ran on XP/Vista! c
  15. @dencorso Agreed. Just because the latest release is no longer compatible with XP, doesn't mean that the last release that is won't suddenly stop working (we've seen some rather unscrupulous examples of that elsewhere over the 6 or so years since XP's "official" EoS). My understanding is that, while Bittorrent has added new features to its protocols over the years since it was introduced, the basic architecture is more or less the same, and virtually all clients, new and old, can still connect to it just fine, just without the advanced features of newer versions. Unless I'm missing something? With all the paranoia surrounding the coronavirus lately, this is actually becoming a real life phenomena, something I never thought would happen! (I kid you not, I recently came across a headline (from a reputable source) that stated that some people are *wearing hazmat suits on airplanes* because of the extreme fear of acquiring the virus!) While i won't be stupid and go put myself in a situation where I'd be infected, I'm not going to live in that kind of fear. Same applies to old Windows and software. While I will use newer, safer software when appropriate (online shopping, banking transactions, etc.), I'm not going to stop using XP, Vista or 7 (or any software thence developed) simply because MS isn't releasing patches for them anymore! Enough said. c
