i'm at that point where i'll probably have to leave my bed, go to the hackspace next door, pull some laptop with a com-port from the junk pile and do a fresh install of windows 98 just to make sure it's neither the hardware nor the system
there are no laptops with com-ports in the pile. what the fuck. there are several laptops with fixed internal floppy drives, but no com-port. what kind of bullshit is this.
not sure where i went wrong in life, but i probably deserve this
it's getting worse
12 hours later and i'm already reinstalling it due to unfixable driver problems :D ah yes, just like back then
@aurora Epic! Works better than the most recent versions
@aurora Nice old ThinkPad. 👍
@aurora why. why. whywhywhy. why. ow. why.
@jrss well i'm open to suggestions, if you can recommend me (free) software and a diy-interface to flash a motorola MC68HC711KA4 in-circuit that does not require windows 98 i'd be glad to hear it
@aurora oh I totally didn't see it that way. I was just wondering why would anyone want to run win98... sure is a challenge there :)
@aurora But Windows 98 is the greatest Windows of all time.
@aurora it is not even the second edition!
@aurora wow scenic is right that's a pretty laptop ✨
