All told I think folks should get beyond M$ and try being “multi-lingual OS” citizens of the Internet.
Multi-lingual OS citizen at your service, sir! ;D Although I must confess the second OS is still 'under construction' so I still have to endure m$ XP as my prime OS. :-\

I'll take a picture tomorrow, I think.

Otay, here we go, my spiffalicious desk! ;D

Peace & Luv, Liz

Where'd you get my desk?? :o

Kidding, though it is remarkably similar to my old desk. ;)

  Update Windows 98, 98SE, ME --- set to expire on 30 June 2006 ---- looks like you will have to type it in manually

Just select the entire url-line, copy it to your clipboard, open a new browser window and paste it in the address bar. No manual typing is needed. ;D
Anyway, why this post ???

   I did that and it did not work with this url.  I wanted the users of 98, 98SE and ME to be aware that the lifeline of their operating systems and components are set to expire on 30 June 2006.  Some people think that support is already up when it is not --- it may be on life-support but the support is still there and free for hotfixes and security issues of 98, 98SE and ME.  Have a great and blessed day, Copycat --  :D

I see now what's the problem with this url, and that's the ] in the url, making the tag think the url has ended. Anyway, the selecting, copying and pasting did work with me. 8)

It's the square brackets that's screwing it up.  ;D

If you want to properly fix a URL, just wrap it in the [url ][/ url] tags. (Without the spaces, of course.)

Yeah, I tried it, but it still screwed up even with that method.  It's the square brackets in the url that are doing it.  And the ;] that appears doesn't help either. ::)

You try it then. I did it that way too, and it didn't work. :-\
Like I said, it's the ] (and I can't use single quotes because then it would like like Yonkey's smiley).

I figured maybe you had some hidden trick up your sleeve with which it could work, but clearly not. Oh well, back to the selecting, copying & pasting then. ;)

EDIT (By Yonkey): Quote tag was touching smiley.. forum got screwed up.  XD

I think she meant the website url.  Like %2B is a space and so on.  ;D

   What PC do you plan to buy next or will you upgrade your system.  Will you stick with Windows 98SE, XP, 2000 or go the Linux or Apple route?

Just build an XP box, the PC’s still fairly new. My next new computer will be a G5 (to replace my PowerBook) but it won’t be for a year yet.  As I said my goal is diversity (though I’m a Mac head at heart) not necessarily finding the best one… each is good for the right thing…

Can't stick with 98SE, cause I don't have it. Won't do 2000, because that's no good for playing games. Won't do Apple, because I don't think it's any use. Am now dual-booting XP and Linux, but only XP is fully operational (although it tends to reboot quite a lot).

   So Copycat, how have you found the dual-boot experience as compared to having just one operating system on your computer?  I am considering XP Pro. on my system with 98SE in order to have the latest hardware support.

Well, seeing as how Linux isn't fully operational at the moment, it's nice to see I can still use the other OS. 8)
Anyway, once Linux is working properly, I'll be booting in Linux much more than in Windows, particularly at first since I'll be checking how much of my software (games) actually can run in Linux (Wine probably).

My next upgrade is so far away I can't even see it  :-\
By the time I get to upgrade there would probably be better things to upgrade to ;)

As for OS, I'd probably go for a dual-boot, Win98 and Linux or XP :)
