  3. As one of the names on the copyright for ODBC 1.0 and involved in making 3.11 happen, I'm well aware of Workgroups (Novell was THE networking software at the tme, TCP/IP was still way off). Workgroups was a feature add on of 3.1 and not a new OS release. I was just pointing out in my release list that MS gets every other release right and 10 is in the cycle to be a good one.
  4. Now have 6 desktops and 2 laptops in the house that have bit the bullet and gone to 10. I am an insider and have seen 10 since it's preview days. Networking them all was initially an issue, but seems to be fine now. And I HATE icons and installed the menu replacement at http://www.classicshell.net/ that makes it at least look like 7. The update process thru the builds has been an adventure. It has blown a few things up here an there but easily repaired. Finding drivers for some of my "Legacy" equipment was more effort than it had to be. But overall, it works. If you follow the MS doctrine: Windows 3.1 started it Windows 95 was a new kernal and buggy, Windows 98 fixed it and very stable Windows ME was the worst operating system ever written Windows XP fixed it and was very stable Windows Vista was a new kernal, buggy and pissed alot of people off Windows 7 addressed the user issues (to a point_ and was very stable Windows 8 had it's issues, somewhat fixed by 8.1, but still buggy. Marketing mistake in making a PC look and act like a smart phone Windows 10 now seems to be that next release that addressed some user issues with 8 and appears to be the next stable release to be around awhile

  6. Hello gang. I have returned. My main nation of QuietDad has returned to TWP, bringing a truckload of Chocolate to keep Darkesia distracted. It's good to be home
  7. Born American of parents born in America, but all the Grandparents are immigrants. Paternal Grandparents born in the Rhine Valley of Germany and actually met at Ellis Island as they immigrated in the mid 1920s. Maternal Grandparents both called themselves Sicilian. Grandfather born in Sicily but Materenal Grandmother born in Belfast and immigrated to the US when she was 16. Her parents where born in Sicily and were on there way to the US but ended up in Belfast for 17yrs making the money to get here. So I've ALWAYS have been told I was half German and half Sicilian (you did NOT call yourself Italian in this house), however Grandma always called herself English/British. As such I grew up speaking fluent English, Italian and German. Still understand Italian and German when I here it, but it's an effort now to speak.
