it's 2020 and i'm currently debugging a software problem in windows 98

where did i go wrong in life

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.

12 hours later and i'm already reinstalling it due to unfixable driver problems :D ah yes, just like back then
