  1. Wouldn't this download all post-SP2 updates though, including those that have been superseded? My thinking was just to download the relevant ones, to reduce the size of the files on disk. Already this is taking up several GB on my hard drive.
  2. I know people who do that, but can't understand why. Why not just use an OS that doesn't require such tweaks, like W7? W7 still requires tweaks, but at least they can all be done through GPOs or reg edits or built-in OS toggling. No third party software needed to make it not drive you insane! Compatability for 8x can be even worse than 7 so I can't see that being a bonus, either. Security updates for 8x will end before or at the same time as security updates for 7 do, IIRC.
  3. Without patching the operating system in a way that makes sfc /scannow fail? Enlighten us, please... The W10 PowerToys are useless IIRC. The XP ones were more useful. Well, I think I'd go mad if I didn't have OpenShell on W10 when I have to use it You're saying people should just use the default sorry excuse for a start menu? It looks more like what an 8x real start menu would have looked like but the point is functionality not look necessarily. Best solution: upgrade to Windows 7, and forget about Windows 10, if you can!
  4. Exactly, I'd say these are all excellent points. I know retrocomputers comprise a good portion of this forum, and as such they/we are all doing our part insofar as electronics go. Today, nothing is built to last, all kinds of rare earth minerals are endlessly purged and wasted - look at sour companies like Apple. They are the epitome of planned obsolescence. Proprietary hardware, exclusive software, planned obsolescence, hardware and software incompatibility, and mobile first. As an environmentalist, it disgusts me. As a technology enthusiast, it disgusts me even more. I'm also
  5. Plenty. Especially lesser used, obscure, or academic sites. Keeping an old version on hand would be a smart idea. I've also got that version I believe safely downloaded from the Wayback Archive. The bomb goes off Jan 12, not Jan 1.
  6. Yeah, you might be right... but I feel like you could get close. Windows Mail, when I ported it to W7, just crashes mostly. MailNews is nice but with 11 accounts it's a memory account. Something like QTWeb that makes it easy to toggle on/off different things like JS would at least allow easy reduction of resources. Also has automatic ad blocking which is probably more efficient than ublock origin.
  7. I was afraid that was the case We just need QTWeb updated for the modern web... I was able to get it to not crash on one page by disabling JS, so that's a relief, but o/w, it loads many things slowly, improperly, or not at all. If someone could make a decent browser that was lightweight < 100 MB idle, < 150 MB with a couple tabs open, that would be awesome! $$$$.
  8. Why not dial your local time and temperature number?
  9. Curious, why the 755 and not the 760 or the 780? I like the 780 the best, but the 755 was the last I think with the built in floppy drive. And none of them have PS/2 ports... gak... can't have everything!
  10. Thanks, I ended up extracting the whole ~400 MB file and finding these and a bunch of other stuff in them. I kept all the Windows files and deleted the Mac and Linux junk. If people block the Windows Update removing Flash support then I think we're home free from here. I probably won't necessarily install it right or use it actively but it will be handy to keep handy. I don't trust the web to all of a sudden remove Flash everywhere. That takes years, maybe decades, not months.
  11. Please change username to "InterLinked". Thank you!
  12. Yeah, it's very sad. As I said, Microsoft has forgotten about its longtime loyalist corporate and power user base and moved on to another market - the fickles who can't tell a computer from a hard drive from a tablet. Very sad.
  13. OK, here is is everyone! Actual download (425MB): https://web.archive.org/web/20200618035158/https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp_32.0.0.371_archive.zip Sourced from: https://web.archive.org/web/20200609220527/https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html Live links don't work anymore. Adobe really wants this stuff gone from the face of the earth.
  14. Wow, thanks! How did you figure that out? Are you saying if I install 32.0.0.371, I should be good to go? Wonder how old that is. Looks like Adobe doesn't have the older versions on their site, do you know where the old versions can be found? Thanks!
  15. Please make sure your programs are supported on *ALL* versions of Windows NT! Nothing irks me more than apathetic developers that make their software incompatible with any version of Windows not currently in stores.
