I loved those IBM keyboards
Although they had a PS/2 connector on the back. I got rid of mine at the time where there were no USB to PS/2 cable adapters. I do miss them!

I still play Red Alert - my all time favorite game. I love the 2D vs the 3D crap as it was easier to control the units with the slick overhead view. Usually play Russia as the Tesla Coils are awesome.
Never liked Red Alert 2 and regular command and conquer was good - but Red Alert hits the sweet spot.
You can download it to play online still from cncnet.org.
Thanks for the info on Proton - was not aware of this. However, looks like it is s till a really small selection of games from Steam site and missing things like Call of Duty, etc. Just curious as what the list of Steam games looks like on your end and if I can finally get rid of more Windows systems.
As other people stated:
Windows 10 - depending on version, changes the way you join a domain. Plus they keep trying to force One Drive and Windows E-Mail.
Latest os Server 2019 AND Windows 10, depending on how you log in is what you can access such as from search: enter diskmgmt.msc. Depending on the user (ie administrator does not work but normal user it does. For me to get it to work as admin, it is Windows key + R and then enter diskmgmt.msc. Yet ANOTHER STUPID extra step to get into disk management.
EVERY version they change where and how configuration is made. This is utter crap.
I have lately had more BSOD's with Windows and USB items than with any other version.
I really could write several pages of issues with Windows 10 that Windows 7 never had but I do not want to bore everyone to death.
why you are opposed to a Space Force? Ideally, it is a WASTE as the Air Force should control space. HOWEVER, the country that controls space controls the planet. The country that controls the moon controls the Planet. It makes sense for the West to start colonizing the moon long before the Chinese and Russians get there - and yes they are trying because they see the strategic advantage.
Lately, I think the comments are getting worse and worse to Daily Mail standards....
As they came THIS close to going under (they needed to Get Smart)
For large companies, ERP systems are ALWAYS going to be a failure. Common cloud apps from vendors will ALWAYS be a failure.
ALL systems should be developed in-house. WHY? The BIGGEST reason not mentioned is this:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>> IT is to be used for a STRATEGIC advantage <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
If EVERYONE used the same crappy ERP or cloud Application, even with customization, it does NOT give you the flexibility to run your business to succeed where others have failed. Without innovation, all other things being equal, you will be forced to compete on price, which drives margins super thin, and ANY shock to the system can put a company under quite easily.
With the exception of PAYROLL, and to extent basic accounting packages (which will still need to be fed with advanced systems), IT should give a competitive and strategic advantage and not follow others.
Let us take a few industries for example:
1) Reinsurance - insurance for insurance companies. Yes, you could go with packages built for Reinsurance, but they are VERY inflexible, and you can no longer write innovative policies without a custom system.
2) Finance - there are so many areas that custom finance will give a superior advantage in many forms of financial products.
3) Online Giants - Amazon - E-Bay - Google - all use proprietary systems and look at their success rate.
I could go on and on with the titans of industry that developed their own strategic applications in-house but it would be pages long. Maybe if you used Oracle Financials, SAP, etc for BASIC accounting GL functions it would work - but at what cost? It still is cheaper to build in-house (and not out source).
Yet ironically, it was boys who wore pink and girls who whore blue back in the early 1900's
All of this is STUPID. Guess I won't be checking out STACK anymore (not that I really used it).
You have a private part (except for the VERY RARE CASES where people are born with both). If it extends, you are male, if not, then female - there are NO OTHER CHOICES. IF you feel you are the other sex, then have the operation and go to the appropriate bathroom/gender/whatever. NOT a hard concept - no need for other genders.
We have that stupid idiot woman that was trans race
What is next? trans species? Sadly. there are people who have had operations to do just that such as a lizard man. When will intelligence come back into vogue?
Queue the downvotes!
Yes - want the remote desktop app? Comes up randomly and not all the time when you do a search. This is why I go back to execute .cpl
Can also query how to join a domain and find web references and not where they moved the setting for it....AGAIN. Windows 10 ===== PURE GARBAGE
Worse yet, how about developers not understanding connection pooling, and every stupid field on the screen had their own connection? Developer puts it into prod and wonders why the app that was on his desk is running slow with simply 15 users on the system.
downvotes on your post. Just moved to Virginia (Norfolk Area) and will take your advice and get solar panels. Our lot backs up to a 30 mile forest preserve and we get tons of furry and feathered creatures as well.
What I would do if I was president is make it mandatory that all buildings have solar panels (even provided by the US government). I would nationalize the grid, so where ever there is extra power could be routed to areas that need it. Advances in panel construction and batteries would make this feasible and get us off hopefully coal and natural gas. Nuclear energy would be the backup attached to the national grids.
Did it ever occur to you that faster broadband speeds AND even JUST broadband access will lift MANY people out of poverty? Plus, how would they access things like government services?
Obviously, you must be near the lower band of income (LAST THING_ I would _EVAR).
Worse yet, browsers underline words that are misspelled.
Boy are you ever clueless, which is why you are anonymous:
Let us just start here:
and I could keep going and going and going and going and going.
How about BLM denying whites access to the "safe space" room even though white people were supporting them? Have to find that link as well. Is this not racism by BLM?
Sadly, one of my clients who sells supplies to school still have AND use these printers for orders. They still use hand signatures to go across all three copies vs using a tablet for a signature. Even though the paper is getting really expensive, I cannot get them to switch :(
Yes - they were impacted by the stupid MS updates on Windows 10. No - they do not want WSUS installed either :(
Need this ====================================>
Funny - I have been driving roundabouts for over 30 years here in the US. Please do not comment on what you do not know - sick of clueless people. I can tell you so many stories of stupid brits I have interacted with just over the phone much less worked with using my Work Visa. Get it through your head ALL countries have plenty of STUPID people.
Here is just one of many links I can come up with
Few interesting things to add to the topic:
1) Switzerland is also a gun nut country
2) About 22% of deaths by gun there are also suicides
3) Almost every household has guns in Switzerland
4) Homicides are far lower there than in most other countries
Cons of this is that it appears to increase suicides as they have the means right there. However, I wonder if suicide rates are the same in countries that ban guns as people may use other methods.
Pros seem to be low crime and low number of homicides in Switzerland.
Take it for what it is, but America is not the only gun obsessed country.
What has stopped me from the Ryzen which I almost bought the 16 core for $699 on sale was the fact it had issues with Hyper-V running 32 bit VM's and other Hyper-V issues such as features not supported on AMD. If they had the full support, Ryzen 1950x would certainly have been my next choice.
I don't care who you are, where you are from, etc. I wish everyone success in getting us into space. Hopefully Russia will quickly figure out what went wrong so this is not repeated. EVERYONE has had at least one catastrophe when launching rockets as this is "rocket science"!!!
I just wish the world would unite, stop all wars, and all that money in defense saved could be spent on colonizing other planets. As more machines do the work here, putting people on other planets removes idle hands on this planet and gives everyone full employment. THAT is the only next industry that will save us as there really is no new field to get into. Plus, if one is kept busy and has a purpose, it reduces the influence from religious nutjobs.
