WTF? I said to myself, and proceeded to try to figure out why half of the network functions out of that box suddenly quit working. About 25 reboots later, which means telling Win95 at least 100 times that I do want to keep those newer versions of secur32.dll and netbios.vdx, I finally got everything back up again.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
