  1. Yeah, I was about to mention that. I'm running the latest version of Debian for x86 on my Latitude D800.
  2. Ah, I don't think you appreciate the gravity of the situation. This is like anuddah 9/11, according to Tobin.
  3. I was waiting for someone to share this here lol
  4. Debian still builds Firefox-ESR without the SSE2 requirement for i686, and I can confirm it works just fine on my Athlon XP 3000+. As for chromium, I have no idea.
  5. @roytam1 does weekly builds of Basilisk /Pale Moon that are compatible with processors lacking the SSE2 instruction, that run just fine on Windows XP.
  6. Building pale moon for machines lacking SSE is pretty easy. Just specify -mno-sse2 in your .Mozconfig.
  7. Aside from myself, I believe there are several other people around these parts who use Athlon XP machines, which lack SSE2, yet do feature SSE. I appreciate @roytam1 doing regular builds for these old processors.
  8. How is Google Voice performance on BNavigator? I've had a bad experience using webapps on anything that isn't Chromium based.
  9. Hey, don't you have an Athlon XP setup? I've been out of the Windows XP scene for a little bit, and I can't remember how I had tuned my user.js to get GPU acceleration working in New Moon 27 SSE. Would you mind sharing yours? Ah, well, that's alright. Nothing lasts forever I suppose. For the time being, ABL seems to be getting the job done quite well.
  10. Which adblocker are NewMoon27 users using? Apparently uBlock firefox-legacy- is incompatible, and all recent releases prior to that one fail to install as well.
  11. You mad, bro? I do my own builds on GNU/Linux. I have no reason to do an XP build, seeing as how I no longer use it in any serious capacity. You become hostile toward anyone ITT who dares ask for a single thing. What gives?
  12. I imagine it would be trivial to do so. I've built Palemoon 28 on GNU/Linux for machines without SSE2 before, and all I had to do was specify -mno-sse2 to my GCC compiler options.
  13. @RainyShadow Turns out I was just missing the correct LAV filters to decode H264 video. I found them here here.
  14. Strange. My Athlon XP machine is the one on which I'm having trouble with youtube, using serpent IA-32. Interestingly enough, my Pentium EE machine does not encounter the same error, when trying to watch a video. I'll investigate more this evening, after work.
  15. Hey all, how are we watching youtube video's with Basilisk now? Every time I try to watch a video, I just get an error that states "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available." Any ideas?
  16. I don't know if it has already been mentioned here or not, but the latest version of the MEGAsync desktop client (4.3.1) is working on Windows XP SP3 as of 05/3/2020.
  17. I fail to see the point in using a CPU with tons of threads with XP anyway. XP's scheduler is pretty bad.
  18. Hi @roytam1! I'd just like to say thank you for providing us with the IA-32 UXP builds! These older Athlon / Pentium III machines are still very useful, especially during this time of economic uncertainty, as some are being forced back into service for the less fortunate.
  19. In regards to the Firefox argument, it seemed pretty cut and dry IMHO. He threw every logical fallacy under the sun at me, but I'm the bad guy. Ok lol. Been over it for a week now, but since you've dredged it up, I must beg the question: Is it not irresponsible to refrain from criticizing blatent misinformation? It's common knowledge that old browsers like FF52.9 ESR have gaping security holes that are actively being exploited. This is not a matter of conjecture, but fact. I wouldn't want someone who is less than informed to take poor advice, then get harmed in the process. I'm not here to attack anyone personally, or stir up trouble for the sake of doing it, but I will call out prima facia misinformation, when I think it could do someone harm. If spreading flat out falsehood is something that isn't only tolerated, but actively encouraged, I'll be happy to see myself out.
