Thanks! :) It really is the perfect desk for me... it's got a little cubbyhole for just about everything, so it appeals to my slightly obsessive neat freak nature. (Yes, my desk usually is that clean... at most I might have a small pile of paperwork on the left side that I need to put away.)

Peace & Luv, Liz

Nice set-up, Jeysie!
Your computer may not be better than mine, but it LOOKS better ;)

My computer desk isn't nearly that high. Just some elevation to put my monitor and my sound speaker on.

Our cat is not allowed anywhere near our pc's and she knows that. 8)
The boxes of my computer games are located on shelves next to my computer desk, behind the desk this (new) pc is on.
Wherever I work, there's paperwork everywhere. Particulary on my pc desk, it's very probable many of it is of absolutely no use anymore, but the urge to clean it up just doesn't come to me that much. :P

   Forgot to mention that it is an old-school style motherboard --- Asus P2BF ---- it has jumpers and can only support a Pentium III 600 mhz. max ---- it has been very stable ---- time to upgrade soon when I have the time and money   !!!

Apparently there are some leaky componens on my old pc-MB, or so the store clerk told me when I had turned in my old pc to replace a burnt-out power supply.

etgadsby, as a tech, have you seen the post that I started about Which Windows is Best and the discussion of why the 9x code must be updated to maintain backwards compatibility and how it is superior on gaming.  The Wall Street Journal says the X-Box uses a variant of 98SE.  Also, on microsoft 98 gen_newsgroup someone with a dual-boot system did a comparison of a game and found that on 98SE their were fewer frames dropped.  Please convice the tech. community to stick with 98SE or switch to Linux to protest Microsoft insistence that everyone up date to Windows XP Pro.  We must maintain a unified front to help force the giant Microsoft corporation to back down from going into unsupported mode for the 9x code.  As a shareholder, I think this will be Microsoft's undoing and may even lead to the demise of the company if Microsoft is not careful.  I thank Microsoft for extending 9x lifeline to June 2006 but we must convince them that a new 98SE --- 98 third edition is needed ---------- please, please help me in this effort and get your tech. friends to help too.  I need all the help possible to overcome Microsoft's decision and even that may fail.  I hope to introduce a proposal that would force Microsoft to continue the 9x line with a 98 third edition that has exit to DOS and new features but not limited like ME was and not based on NT like Windows XP pro is.  Please help me with my efforts and have a great night.   ;D

Oh, that is good  :D  I wonder how long it will take Microsoft to get the hint that consumers like 98SE and want a continuation of the 9x line?  I have read that at its basic level the NT code is flawed whereas the 9x code is not flawed.  Why Microsoft chose to go the NT route instead of the 9x route is beyond me?  Oh, well  It will be their undoing in the end due to the many inherent security flaws of the NT code.   ;D

dew7, I do want to take a moment to give you a thoughtful response to your “Windows 98 Third Edition” idea. Right now I’m a little fragmented, with luck I’ll be able to make an intelligent post later today/tonight. Just wanted to let you know I hadn’t forgotten about you!   ;]

Maybe at its basic level the NT code is more flawed than the 9x code but at its top level it's the complete opposite. After all, companies (who use(d) NT), can't afford to have flaws in their OS.
I still have a lot of customizing to do in Linux, not the least of which is to try and get the HD-, the network controller- and the sound chip-drivers loaded automatically, instead of manually (by myself). :-\

   Copycat, I would suggest you think about being an architect for a minute.  If you were designing a building you would want a strong foundation, right?  You would not build your building in a swamp where it would sink down into the mud and collapse no matter how strong a building was built.  You would want to build the structure on rock or a solid foundation.  Likewise using this analogy, you can see the differences between the NT and 9x source codes.  The NT source code has a weak foundation as its most basic core whereas the 9x foundation is much stronger at its most basic core.  It does not make any sense for Microsoft to continue to insist that the NT source is more secure.  Check out the eeye.com website to see how many security flaws the NT code still have that have been discovered.  This goes to show that Microsoft should reverse direction and continue to develop for the 9x code because it actually is stronger and can be made more secure if and when the effort is made to strengthen it.
