20 years huh? Isn't that like 80 in people years?
As to your challenge......I'm not that nostalgic!
I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

I have all my diskettes or whatever they are in the sleeves.
I am working on doing just that anyway, for grins.
My interest is to see if it works any faster on a fast computer.
I remember those days...the hard drive hammering and hammering away..slow as molasses in January.
Why would you want to use FB?
If you can get an old FireFox on it, and older version are readily available, Default User Agent will tell websites what you are using....your choice.
I am telling them WIN7, 64 bit, FF 25.0 right now, even though I am XP-32 bit and an older FF.
I would bet doing that you'd get into FB.
E-mail is no issue, as I still use OE and pop3.
I have on my backup computer IE6, and good night there are sites that don't like that.
I just stay away from any IE anymore, even Spartan/Tartan/Edge.
OpenOffice should work, won't it? But I have the Office 95 discs, too.
When I got my backup Dell Precision 490 up and running two months ago, with a fresh XP-64 load, when I loaded updates from MS you could hear the alarm bells in Redmond going off without even stepping outside.

The first system I used was Win 98. Not long after that my father installed Win XP on our home desktop. Although never got a chance to use Win 95, still show my respect.

I remember there was a spate of office break ins nearby soon after Windows 95 was released. The target of the thefts? Memory chips, which they were removing from office PC's. I think most PC's of the time commonly had 4Mb and Windows 95 needed 8+ Mb to run optimally. Back then, 4Mb cost more than 16Gb costs today..

I have a few win95 PCs that I could easily get on the modern internet. I will do it once I get home!
