  1. Hello all: My web site is back up, so you can now download my unofficial Roytam1 browser installer again. As always, get it here: http://i430vx.net/files/XP/RoyTam Browser Installer.exe
  2. Yes. It's just a Gmail. I suppose for some, Google is technically is an ISP, though. But hopefully adding the MSFN email address to the address book will stop it from going to spam folder.
  3. Just to make people aware— my site has been down for a couple days and will continue to be for a few more. Gone are the “dark ages” of my unofficial browser installer needing my server to work, but if you try to download my installer and discover the link is broken, that is why. I will post another update when it is back online.
  4. I noticed today that for the past ~2 days my emails have went to the spam folder. but they are still and have been mostly arriving for me.
  5. Also living near the Canadian border, (until my antenna blew away in a windstorm last month), I also got some Canadian stations. Ironically, due to my geography, I don't get any US stations, despite living in the US. But I'm only receiving digital stations, so i'd presume the analog stuff is more of a Rural Canada thing.
  6. I can certainly add this to the list. But, currently my installer is in maintinence-mode (only fixing serious bugs and not many new stuff) due to not having much free time. I have things for the installer of a higher priority when the free time arises, but I am commited to adding an "install as portable" option eventually. But, yeah. As a reminder, @roytam1 is not affiliated with the house of cards known as my browser installer. He ports changes and compiles binaries, I just make an (Unofficial!) installer that eases the retreival and unpacking of said binary archives.
  7. That's bizarre. You'd think it would be all or nothing....
  8. Interesting. As of approximately 2 days ago (your time of writing) I was receiving them. I haven't gotten a message on here since so I am unsure if i STILL would be getting emails, or not.
  9. I've added the latest working installer (1.8.15) to my EOL repository on my web-site: http://i430vx.net/files/XP/EOL/tsetup.1.8.15.exe
  10. If you mean that you activated it over the phone, that still counts as one of your "activations"
  11. Wow! It's a bit early to be deciding that sorta thing. But im sure other AVs will continue to service 7/8 for years after avira.
  12. I cannot say I've ever run into this problem you speak of. I've even installed XomPie on server 03, didnt happen there.
  13. I thought it wasn't possible at all?
  14. Might I add, though, I don't expect that to be an issue, as of a few months ago (and probably still today), the earliest of windows builds of telegram still logged in and worked. Talk about backwards compatibility.
  15. It may be a limitation of your chipset. My ThinkPad T60 has a Chipset limitation of 3GB. I will never be able to use more.
  16. I'm also seeing the nag, today is the first day I notice it but i haven't been very active recently.
  17. The download server seems to be not working, I keep getting bad gateway errors. EDIT: Never mind, it was my browser. Wouldn't download in FF45 SSE but DOES download in KM-Goanna
  18. was browsing reddit, aaaaaaand... QuickTime updater on Windows XP.
  19. As long as you have plenty of RAM (at least 512MB IMO), Serpent IA32 works fine. Maybe there is issues, maybe not, but I certainly haven't seen any.
  20. Beauty! I like this icon. And the orange you added later really complements it
  21. took me a bit to find the thread again, it got put in a better place i see. Yeah, after several minutes of searching in the BIOS i finally found a setting for PME events, set it to disabled, and sure enough it stayed off. Still sorta weird that it did that in the first place, but whatever. Thank you for the help!
  22. When I test the patches I typically use darksky.net, a google search results page, MSFN, and the vogons forum
  23. It's not Windows XP. If any version of windows, that thick taskbar, and the small, non-green start button would say that it's Windows 7 (Windows Basic theme) But its probably not windows. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2446733/russia-plans-a-switch-to-linux-to-rid-the-country-of-western-pigdogs https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2019/05/russias-microsoft-knockoff-gets-security-upgrade/157310/ Apparently some unnamed russian internet offical has confirmed it to be XP, but it sure doesnt look like it. I’m not convinced.
  24. Hey guys, I’m now the proud owner of a PCI 8400GS that I got for my Compaq DeskPro EN running Windows XP. There’s just one small issue. With this PCI GPU in, the computer will not shut off. Doesn’t matter if I boot windows or not, and it happens in other computers that I’ve tried the card in, too. It does “flick” off for a split second but promptly turns back on and begins booting again. My questions are: -Why does this happen? -Is there anything I can do to stop it, like taping over a specific “power on” pin or something? thanks, i430VX
