Ah the days of DOS. When you actually typed in commands and the O/S didn't do anything at all until then.

A pity we can't read the replies to some of the questions, that would be interesting too.

Went there recently ... very exciting place ... seems as though nobody knew what the hell you were talking about due to the lack of replies ... real spooky.

Must only have been one computer tech in NZ putting out questions to the rest of the world in the hope of gaining knowledge.

Poor guy .... now EVERYONE has the answer !!

Looks like the millennium bug was a problem after all. Everything pre-2001 is unanswered :eek:
