Re: Removing Windows 95/98/ME?

E.g., I've been pondering setting up a Win98 VM for some old programs and games -- even making it amenable to be carried around in the smartphone... In a pinch, if you are feeling nostalgic, you can always fire Win95 up in your browser :D https://www.pcjs.org/software/pcx86/sys/windows/win95/4.00.9...

Re: QtlMovie (multimedia converter utility)

I was digging around for another GUI frontend to FFMPEG that will solve an encoding program for me, and came across this. QtlMovie is a really neat program, and ticks a lot of boxes. Unfortunately, it is not portable as it writes settings to HKCU\Software\QtlMovie\QtlMovie . So I will move this topi...

Re: Removing Windows 95/98/ME?

So what are your thoughts on this? Should we finally get rid of Win95/98/ME?

Scheduled downtime

Just received notice from my VPS provider that there's a scheduled downtime on 22 May 8am to 8pm PDT for some networking equipment upgrade. So don't be alarmed if you are unable to access TPFC during that time frame.

Cheers!

Re: Removing Windows 95/98/ME?

And I am glad to report that my assertion 10 years ago: Not true. Although WinNT and above use Unicode in the underlying system, most applications are still ANSI only. That's what the "Language for Non-Unicode Programs" setting in the Control Panel is all about. If set to the default "English", ANSI...

Re: Classic Browser (Chromium based)

For me, the first criteria of portability is nicely summed by this : Allmost all "portabilized" chromium-based browsers have a serious problem recently (generally with Chromium 59, I think) : they are not truly portable any more ! Namely, when transferring to another PC (e.g. via USB stick), all the...

Re: CD Sync (DotNET disk cataloguer)

Hi Ankit, welcome to the site. I think it's unlikely you'd get a reply from smaragdus, since his stats indicate his last logon was in 2019! But it's great you let us know you have open sourced the CD Sync program. You never know, someone might join the community later, finds your program fulfills a ...

Re: Scancode Map (keyboard re-mapper)

Marked. This is potentially a very useful app eg. swap Ctrl and FN keys if the BIOS doesn't support it.

Registration Q&A changed

It was good while it lasted...

The recent increase in spam posts tells me our previous registration Q&A have been breached. So I have changed the answers to thwart the dark forces.

Till next time!

Re: Video Duplicate Finder

I had a couple of movies at 720p vs 1080p, and they were flagged as dups (the 720p were actually down-converted from 1080p using Handbrake, and I forgot to delete the...
