I remember that windows. It seems that it is time to almost one million years.

@Jypyä Pop: It does deem a lifetime away, now . . but only 16 years or so . . strange. (Ronnie)
Okay okay you are " star stuck!! "
Move on...take a bold decision...the Stars will open new windows:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

@Devi: Wonderfully said !! I like it. (Ronnie)
Windows 98 ???
My last change was from Windows 3.0 to Windows 95. Should I upgrade !
20 Nov 2014 8:08am
@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): Time and MS have passed you by - file corruption, viruses and trojans are now very advanced. (Ronnie)
The `good` old day`s ????
At that time I was not so at www
20 Nov 2014 8:24am
@Marjolein: . . it all becomes a blur . . . (Ronnie)
better I don't update, no?
20 Nov 2014 8:40am
@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): Yeah, stick with the devil you know ! (R)
Un windows de la préhistoire
20 Nov 2014 8:51am
@jpla: Le temps passe si vite . . (R)
I am still with Windows XP so I fully sympathise with you, Ronnie!
20 Nov 2014 9:16am
@Stephen: Yes, I still have an 'unconnected' PC on XP . . how I miss those service packs (not)! The shadows are lengthening on Win7, now . . (Ronnie)
Wow you've updated, I'm not so sure I can as I just can't see through my windows !!!
20 Nov 2014 10:31am
Une photo qui vaut bien cinq étoiles..! :-)

"Before you know everything is old !!", nice photo registration.

@Willem: 'Planned Obsolescence', I think they call it. (R)
Dump WINDows, go straight to Android Ronnie and get rid of software bloat.....
20 Nov 2014 11:17am
@grouser: 'Software Bloat' - I think that's what I've got in my ankles, Grouser . . and not 'Cupid's Bow' up the legs like the Doc said. (Ronnie Concerned)
A strange dialogue ... you need to update? Oh! I have to talk to my computer! On your page always update me ...! Thank you very much ...! Best regards, Adela

98 was not bad. Much better than 8.
20 Nov 2014 12:25pm
@Hiro: Thankfully, I have avoided 8 . . .(Ronnie)
Very funny. 98 seems to live forever.
20 Nov 2014 3:49pm
@Slackwater Don: It does not seem as long ago as it was . . if that makes sense. (R)
it's always good to be on the conscious side, ronnie ... but don't wait too long !!!
20 Nov 2014 3:50pm
This seems like ancient history. But, being a Mac guy, I never really dabbled in astrology nor windows voodoo. It's great this stuff still exists.
20 Nov 2014 6:31pm
@Steve Rice: If I were starting over, I'd likely go Mac . . but if I were starting over a lot more would change, too ! (Ronnie)
I am stumped by all of this. I am a MAC and have been taken to Yosemite. You might want to try it, RONNIE. SEEMS LIKE APPLE MIGHT BE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU.
20 Nov 2014 6:38pm
@Ruthiebear: Too late for me to change now . . but see my response to Steve, above. (R)
I had to chuckle when seeing this only because I started cleaning out my home office last weekend and ran across some VERY old Windows manuals. Thanks for the laugh!!
20 Nov 2014 7:07pm
@Steven: This posting was prompted by my doing much the same in someone else's office ! ( from Lilly )
This looks like a prehistorical picture.....
20 Nov 2014 7:18pm
LOL! Don't give Microsoft any ideas, next thing they'll bring out a new Windows to match every year - get ready for the launch of Windows 2015 early next year...
I upgraded from XP to 8 recently and feel very old now - I hate change! :-)
20 Nov 2014 8:08pm
@Anina Botes: Yes, I hear the next version - 10 ? - will have the option to view it like Win 7 rather than the direction they took with 8. (R)
I've lost track as to what Windows is the newest right now, but Windows 98 seems like such a long time ago. Time flies!
20 Nov 2014 8:13pm
@Elaine Hancock: Yes, I cannot remember all the versions now . . I know I have had ME, XP and 7. (Ronnie)
being so far is not always meaningless!
Basics !! I love the basics ! (:)
20 Nov 2014 8:34pm
@Goddess: Where would we be without basics ?! (Ronnie)
DOS? 95? 98? XP? ... now Win7 ... kicking and screaming 'cuz I do not want Win8.
Thankfully if 'she' dies, I can still buy Win7 Pro.
You got a lot of us thinking with this one, you two! ;D
20 Nov 2014 10:09pm
@Judy aka L@dybug: Well, I have Win7 Pro but it is due to be replaced by (I think) Win 10 next year which can be configured to look like Win 7 rather than Win 8. Fixing another coffee, now. (Ronnie)
First things first, Ronnie ......... you can't be too cautious!!
20 Nov 2014 10:50pm
@Ellebelle: Wise advice.
I'm with you Ronnie - I'll wait until they FINALLY decide on the finished version of Windows before upgrading...
20 Nov 2014 10:56pm
Hahahahaha !!! Brilliant and witty !! I'm thinking about all the complex astrology reviews Ronnie must have had to read following this logic ! ;-)
20 Nov 2014 11:01pm
@Josep: Yes, probably as accurate as many of the technical reviews on the Web ! (Ronnie)
Pardon me but all I can say is "Oh, My Havens!" Good Luck Ronnie.....But f you have trouble, Barbara's family home in Redmond, Washington (USA) is within walking distance of Microsoft...we could take a hike over there and see if Bill can help :-)
21 Nov 2014 1:22am
@Denny Jump Photo: Rather than 'help', I'd go for the refund ! (Ronnie)
You can certainly download your horoscope with Windows 98. Just dial-up your AOL account and be prepared to wait. If Lily is on CompuServe or Prodigy, she can page you so you can call her to discuss whether to shoot on film or with one of those new 400 x 600 pixel digital cameras.
21 Nov 2014 2:48am
@Harry: ha ha . . nice one - I can identify with all that ! (R)
Is it time to give up my Vic 20?
21 Nov 2014 4:02am
@Michael Rawluk: Ah, the Commodore VIC-20 . . no strain on the eyes with just 28 characters per line ! R o n n i e )
ah la star de cette époque
21 Nov 2014 8:51am
@L'Angevine: Vrai !
Dans l'ancien temps encore Ronnie ????.......... :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
21 Nov 2014 1:08pm
:))) I remember. Of quite manners, we always find ourselves very fast overtaken !
21 Nov 2014 3:42pm
I remember that windows 98 :)
21 Nov 2014 4:29pm
@fereshteh.: Odd how it starts to look familiar, huh ?! (Ronnie)
parece una imagen tan lejana que cuando la tuve no sabia como empezar a utilizarla , mi vida ahora camina dentro de diferentes programas , en mi netbook win7 . en mi ordenador XP en mi móvil android y en mi notebook win8 , el cual me cuesta encontrarlas cosas aun jajajaaj . cuando las encuentre seguro me cambian de windows . un beso muy grande Ale
PD : cuando tengo problemas acudo a mis sobrinos =)
21 Nov 2014 4:55pm
@AMH: Yo sé - todo cambia tan rápido . . (Ronnie)
If you have any trouble, you can call my son, he works for Microsoft.
21 Nov 2014 8:26pm
Throw caution to the wind! It's time for a break up with Windows. I know you never thought it would end like this, but trust me, it's like going from a Ford Focus to a Ferrari. Say good-bye to the blue screen of death and anti-virus software and hello to a match made in heaven. I'm sure Arlo would agree.
21 Nov 2014 9:36pm
@B. Thomas: Arlo has been researching this Comment on . . Firefox. (R)
ohmy .. that 's a long time ago??
I wonder what the stars had to tell me in '98.
what windows '98 has brought me, I know ..
21 Nov 2014 10:40pm
21 Nov 2014 10:58pm
:-) Must admit, this makes you realise how quickly forget how quickly time passes.
22 Nov 2014 6:33am
@Helen: Agree - 'time' is difficult to put into perspective . . at times ! (Ronnie)
:)) Excellent punchline and very beautiful photos.
Your post reminded me MS-DOS, my first connection with computer... On that time, working with windows95 for me was a great gift from the sky.
22 Nov 2014 7:34am
@fateme@@: Yes, in those early days we all felt like 'developers' . . in a way, we were ! (Ronnie)
Une belle représentation d'un monde de l'informatique "préhistorique"! Belle capture.
22 Nov 2014 8:31am
@maximage: Merci - avoir un bon week-end. ( L&R )
Trop drôle comme d'habitude chez toi! J'aime++++++
22 Nov 2014 9:05am
@Martine: Merci - bénir (L&R)
My god ! I was not even born at that time .... hum, born to internet I mean. A look to the old time to see how we are happy now, hum..... I 'm not so sure. Annierita
22 Nov 2014 9:40am
@Annierita & Annisabelle: . . Time speeds by . . make the most of it, I say. (Ronnie)
if you wait long enough (but not necessarily hundreds of years) a single Gamma-ray burst might liberate you from the necessity to finally make up your mind.
22 Nov 2014 11:46am
@Pnyks: Ah, yes, that should clear the confusion ! (Ronnie)
Well, if Windows 98 goes well... why should you change? This one is better than windows 8....awful!!
22 Nov 2014 2:13pm
@Rafael: Yes, I am avoiding 8 . . waiting for 10. (Ronnie)
Bon, Ronnie, faut s'y faire, depuis il y a mieux quand même!
22 Nov 2014 2:31pm
So many souvenirs there wit Windows98 !!!
22 Nov 2014 6:48pm
@Mhelene: Certainly been a long and bumpy road. (R)
Stars will bright for ever! i starded with this one. :)
23 Nov 2014 8:36am
Bringing old memories as a S/W consultant!!! very nice one.
23 Nov 2014 9:39am
@Sathya: Astrology might have been easier ! (Ronnie)
