Now I don't care who ya' are, that there's funny.

IMO somewhat deserving with all the problems they are having with the website.

35 floppy disks? Then why does the box say 48?

They just can't get this F'n thing straightened out!

I'm having flashbacks to working for campus housing IT and that copy of Windows 98 Second Edition we had around on about 16 floppies, just in case.

I also remember getting into political flamewars at MacCentral and mourning the Monday that Bungie announced they were canceling Halo for the Mac and selling out to Microsoft to work on some ridiculous new gaming platform based on Direct X called the X-Box... like that thing will ever sell.

It's funny what memories a little bit of crappy web code will stir up.

Remember the old 8" and 5 1/4 " floppy disks... that were really floppy !
I think our 5 1/4 " on the TRS-80 held about 64K !! WOO-WOO !!

The Brits called the original floppies - floppies and the hard cased ones "Stiffies".
My old boss came to CDC from S. Aftica and the first time he went in and asked the Secretary if she had any spare "Stiffies", he thought he was going to be brought up on Sexual Harassment charges !! laugh
He had some quick 'splaining to do !!

I still have a MacClassic.
I have to check if I have the
original install floppies though.

I recall Microsoft Word had about that many stiff floppies to install in the 90's

Evidently, the Obama Admin has extended the enrollment deadline by 6 weeks. Seems like a logical move. If the site is such a mess and delaying enrollments, push back the penalty date to accommodate late-comers.

The problem is people have no patience. Give it a chance and everything will work out for itself much better in the long run.

I agree.

We, the longtime denizens of forums
better understand what Admins go through
to get a new forum up, running ..AND De-Bugged.

Offer Feedback ...when asked for...
then sit back and be patient until it's "Soup". smile

...to do otherwise is just f'n annoying

but the GOP's got their "MARCHING ORDERS"
to do exactly that.
