Just checking, in case MS had a fit and cut us off at the knees a day early

AFAIK, there's still no 9x support forums whatsoever - at least in English
(unless I've been looking in the wrong places)

Some of the long time 'regulars' in the W98 groups have made formal
requests for forums for legacy OS forums and they have point blank been
told that W9x is obsolete and unsupported and that there will be no
forums for these legacy products. They were told that they should
upgrade to a newer operating system... so some of them are upgrading to
something that isn't Microsoft. I wonder if Microsoft expects them to
upgrade their Windows 98 boxes to Windows 7...

When you find one let me know I spent ages yesterday looking through them
trying to sort out how to make this bridge thing work. I did come across a
couple of XP ones but don't think I've manage to actually get any messages
yet to download g

which bridge are you using, Joan? - the 'official' one(s) or the one that
works? g

I'm still using the 'official' ones until the other one settles down
build-wise - it had something like 5 releases in one day last week!

Greetings to all.

Never been much for giving (useable) advice, but have come to appreciate
this little area for help and insight to the workings of my ole ME op sys..

I started back in the day when you built your own computer and then did
the op sys programming by hand.
We then moved on to DOS as a common platform for others programs.
and then to windows as a platform which was even more common with hundreds
of custom programs..

Then somewhere during all that Microsoft got so large as a platform
supplier they began to think of themselves as lords of the computer..

"my way or the highway" seemed to be their company motto.

with the internet, they have even gotten more grandiose with themselves.
(dare I say god like in self promotion)

Microsoft even now considers governments should bend the knee to the kings
in Redmond..

But I digress,

I shall miss the lively banter of truths often found here over how ME
should or does work.. )

to quote an old sage, "Live long and Prosper"


Till we meet again on some other News Group...

Rocky T. Squirrel

In essence we are left to ourselves with our 'obsolete' systems and , if we
intend
to keep it, we better know how to operate and/or fix it, if necessary.
They simply cannot be bothered anymore
That should be understandable, shouldn't it?
As for myself, I'm fine with that.
But I certainly miss this good company forever.

Harry.

Thanks for reiterating, Corday, I did miss it, believe it or not.

I was going to suggest that the last person here turns out the lights before
they leave, but then realised that will not be necessary as they will go out
the moment MS pulls the plug. They've obviously thought of everything -
except their "legacy" customers.
