    JCG, I've tried. Sorry to say, but your ministrations are falling on deaf ears. Here it's all-the-magic, all-the-time. But note: We're the ones with closed minds, doncha know? Ever notice how people who believe in magic always say that?

    Ouch! That had all the sting of a fluffy cloud, but half as interesting.

    Pet Peaves

    When future societies write about the fall of Western Civilization in the 21st. century, they will point to this thread as one of the signs of the impending implosion that were ignored.
  6. Right, android in not accessible the way Windows is, but installing an SSH server is simple enough. Once into the system, troubleshooting is as simple as troubleshooting any other Linux box. Easy Peas.
  7. Trust me, Doug, I'm an actual professional. or once was. OS/2 was discontinued back in 2001and for good reason, it was complicated, expensive, and was difficult to troubleshoot and to obtain adequate support for. And I include IBM's own helpdesk here. It was fine used as a simple desktop, but start adding 5250 or 3270 emulation into the mix, then all bets are/were off. System resource tuning was a nightmare. At the point of it's demise, and it pains me to admit, MS had a better product with Windows 2000. The fact some people continue to use OS/2 is no reflection on the viability of the product, after all there are user groups for Atari and CP/M.
  8. I think your inclination toward apathy is your best bet here, Doug. Who cares about OS/2, it's a dead product. Which, by the way, I was supporting back in the '90s. But answer me this, Doug, is the flayrod still out of skew on the treadle?

  11. Most here can't see past their own preconceptions. I'd say WideSky has nothing to worry about.

    Fiber optic cable in Riberas

    Says the king of the one word dismissive reply. But if you're really looking to impress your friend at the next Microsoft soirée, you could start here... Fiber Optic Cables. There are more cables in heaven and Earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    " Turns out most fibre cable is "flat" like this." No, it isn't.
