In Amsterdam I travel always by streetcar (tram). In the newer ones they have put in tv screens that show commercials (ofcourse) and local news. Most of the time these tv screens show windows errors though... I'll take a picture of it next time and post it here to.
Would be a nice idea to start a thread about windows errors and messages on the funniest places (with pictures of it to prove it)
It totally surprises me that they would use windows on a ATM machine. Wouldn't you think you would use a more secure and stable (over the long run) OS? If not some proprietary OS with the basic functions required to do its job.
I've seen more and more machines pop up with Windows XP on them, the Fry's self-checkout counter uses them as well, and they had an error message up as well when the screen's touch display was not properly plugged in, missing hardware. Also, when you get there at 0500 they are booting em into Windows XP.
That windows 95 box was a move to new hardware. No new installation, I just went berzerker on the registry and system files. I was a 233Mhz P2 box (HP branded) and it became a 550 K6-2 and Rage card box. It was beautiful to behold.
But yar, Windowz ME sucked bawlz untill you stripped it of all the excess crap.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
