    Yeah, so I have reduced caffeine to almost nothing now for this reason - insomnia issues.

    So how are you? and welcome back :)

    I drank disgusting levels of mountain dew as a teenager, and have sworn off all pop and caffeine when I became an adult. Except for chocolate sometimes...
    How's everyone enjoying the blasts of polar vortex winds? hehe

    A friend sent me this, knowing I still operate XP daily. A true friend, indeed. The same friend I previously mentioned that finally convinced me to upgrade from 98se to XP. XPoutlive.jpg

    ^Awesome :cool: and thanks for the statistics - I didn't know we beat out windows 8 - I guess that was not very popular overall. I've never used Vista or 8.

    ^Gosh this is so disturbing to say the very least, but I don't doubt it.

    Haha nice! It doesn't take quite that many, they hold 1.44mb, or 1.68mb if you circular formatting or whatever it's called, so the drive reads it like a cd instead of stepping between each track.
    I remember back in the days of Pentiums (first-gen) I would transfer Napster MP3's from a public library with cable internet, split onto floppies, carried in a bag on my bike handlebars (like 40), home to my old hand-me-down computer with no internet. At 3-5 floppies (and 8? minutes of floppy copying) per song.... I had to REALLY like each song I copied!

    That's also how I learned about bad sectors, how to detect and mark them, and started using dos JAR compression for it's superior error-correction info adding to each split archive. Most of the MP3s didn't receive pops and clicks of corruption!
