Damn!

Just fired up my old Compaq computer. Bet I haven't used it since mid 2007.

Machine just started right up and booted into Windows 97. Everything looks intact too. Had to get some data off the thing. Probably got copies somewhere, but it was easier just to hook it up and burn to disc.

Of course the REAL thing I was looking for was not present there nor on my Mac. But I took a bunch of other stuff off while I had the thing on.

What a warhorse that thing is! Sat in my garage for the better part of a yearand a half and then out to the storage room that I've got out in the hinterlands.

I'm shocked. And pleased of course...
