I downloaded a batch of fonts that were in ZIP files. Out of about 40 files, three of them did not have a TTF file inside the Zip, but instead had OTF files. What the hell is a OTF file? They wont open in Windows98se.

Need to remove a bad file association. by [email protected]
For some reason, VLC adopted the .BIN type file and associated itself with that extension. Those BIN files are system files and should not be associated with VLC. Since Win98 has several BIN files, I need to unassociate that ext. How do I do it? Clicking on one of them caused a system crash.......

Problem with writing/updating to a 32 GB USB stick. by R.Wieser

Is there any way to Disable "secure" webites that use HTTPS? by [email protected]

I'm running VLC for XP on Win98se by [email protected]
This is interesting. I installed VLC 2.0.5 (32 bit) on Windows 98se, and it works perfectly. This version is listed for XP and higher. It's not even supposed to work on Win 2000. The last version intended for Win98 was ver 1.0.2 from 2009. I wonder how this can be????
