Sorry. Forgot to do today's drink.
All day, I kept going ''oops, forgot to write about today's drink'', and then insta-forgetting what I was going to do.
I'll do that now.

Today's flavour : Coconut

Nah. The whole point of this was 'cos I knew that if I was to upgrade the Lappy at all, I'd want a decent boost.

Good on ya for sticking with it.

I remember hearing from somewhere a while ago that people had win95 and 98 running in android. Exactly how well, I don't know but that might be another avenue?

Nah.. Copy+Paste via Windows doesn't preserve the timestamps, so the next SyncToy run will think all the files are different, and end up re-copying them all.

Yeah, watch out for that limit, though. Like I said, SyncToy (my long time backup companion since it launched!... 2009!!) seemed to fail once it reached about 80% through my backups. But then, it IS [url=https://socoder.net/uploads/1/2020/23/backup_size.*snip*

So, got the ending sequence music playing, but it's a bit off tempo (either too quick or too slow) and I can't quite control it with any great granularity.

Gonna try adding the noise channel to see if I can bring it together with that one.

I think I'm pretty stuck to be honest.

I don't fully understand how going to work daily is fine but visiting the kids isn't.
