Here in the fine City of Memphis Fire Department change comes slow, but every now and then we do have reason for hope. About six months ago we started hearing rumors of the city putting mobile data terminals and GPS units in all our equiptment. Two months ago we came to work to find a brand new motorola terminal installed in our ambulance here at station 40. Still It wasn't operational yet since we have about 30 ambulances to equip. Today I came to work and was told that the new terminal was working and that they had started training on it. "Cool" I said. "Show Me" We applied power and on the screen I see WINDOWS 98 pop up!!!! I almost fell out of the cab. Here I was all excited that we would be joining the 21st century and what does the city do? The spend a huge amount of money on a system that is now doomed to failure. You have to love it. I wonder if there is any way I could hook my mac up to it hehehe.<br><br>

Windows 98?<br><br>I think that was the last version of Windows that didn't need a constant internet connection to send private data back to Microsoft.<br><br>Don't forget to reboot before going out on a call.<br><br>
Yeah, imagine the whole vehicle relied on Win98...<br><br>"Oops! Hang on with that heart attack, Mr. Johnson- we have a blue screen going here and the defribulator stopped working..."<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a </font color=red> <br>

Whenever I get on a plane - just before the plane rolls back from the gate the lights go out and then back up (I guess they are going from being plugged in to self powered). I like to turn to the person next to me and point at the lights and say<br><br>"The lights? Don't worry it's just the pilot rebooting Windows 98. It's part of the checklist before takeoff"<br><br>HA HA HA HA HA<br><br>
