    May sound strange, but.....

    I'm looking for an old PC that is still running Windows 98 or Windows 2000. I've got an old ink jet with embedded firmware that won't run on a computer with an operating system higher than Windows 2000. Speed or disk storage is not important.

    Paper - Let's Solve This Together

    Over the last couple of months, our paper prices have increased, on average, about 12% across the board (some higher, some lower).

    In Moderation

    Is it just me, or, does there seem to be an increase in spamming on this forum? I'm not that well-versed in forum operations, but, if it works like my blog site (done in word press), all comments are held in a "holding area" and are not published until I take a look at them (moderation). At...
