@phenomlab lol yeap, very smart… I read it and immediately ask the same question to ChatGPT and saved the letter sample 😄
I might use it in the future.
@Sala heh, MMX technology was bleeding edge at that time! And yes, the CD-ROM was king until the DVD came along and stole it’s crown. I distinctly remember running Windows 95 on these machines, then (with a memory upgrade) Windows NT4 Workstation with service pack 3.
They also made a small form factor model with no floppy disk (yeah, I’m that old) and the only 2 ways to get an operating system on it were network boot or cloning a hard disk in another system then installing that into the one without the floppy.
We avoided those like the plague.
@Sala impressive. That’s actually a lot harder than it looks. I once worked for a trading firm in the 90s and a trader came to me with a corrupted floppy disk demanding I get it to work.
Evidently, it had all of his trading positions on it and he had no backup and he wasn’t impressed when I told him that the chances of data recovery were less than zero.
