I'm just guessing that the resolution is set for higher resolutions for later OSs and you're still running 98.right?

I'm running XP Pro desktop, Vista Ultimate 64 bit that needs the charge adapter taken out and replaced and a new charger cord too and Windows 8.1. Oh and I forgot I also have a desktop that I dual boot with XP Pro and Vista Ultimate 32 but that needs a power supply where the lighting burnt up almost everything I had that was plugged up even on the surge protector. It went straight into the cable line. It got my router, two LG tvs, cable box, modem, network card, and power supply. That was almost 3 years ago.

I just have the one custom desktop that I got in 2007, and installed XP Pro.  Not much choice, for me. ;)

I got XP Pro here.

All the post are hard to read because the text is too small and the Quotes in the replies are even harder to read.
They are very close to the right size.

Bug: The small icon (with the arrow) to the right which links to the "Last Post", doesn´t work.
It links to the first post on the last page, not the last.

Suggestion: enable BB-Code.
It would make it a lot easier to use bold, underline and indent.

Hi, hackerman1!  I haven't seen you in a while. 

The standard BBCode quick links are available in the full reply option, just not in Quick Reply.  SMF forum software does operate differently from IPB and phpbb.

Regarding the "arrow", if there is only one post in the thread, it will appear as though you aren't taken to the last post.  However, when I went to the "Welcome Members" topic, clicked the arrow, it went directly to your post:  http://calendarofupdates.org/index.php?topic=6.msg236#new

BTW, nice post at Windows Server to Workstation • View topic - Calendar of Updates is alive again !.  The powers that be are working to get a proper calendar set up again too but since the new site was just set up, it may take some time to work out a satisfactory solution.

Hi Corrine !

Well, if you haven´t seen me then you haven´t visited the right forums then.... ;)
I have been very busy lately on The Windows Club-Forum
Posting, hunting spammers, and working "undercover" as Admin, restricting permissions for some members (remember our email-conversation...? ) and investigating & fixing errors.... ;)

Yes, the "Last Post" works now.
But it didn´t when i posted above.
Weird...

"Nice post at... (WS-forum)
Thank you.
I´ve also posted the same on the Windows Club-forum: http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/windows-security/37071-calendar-updates-alive-again.html, the post on WS-forum is actually a copy of that post...

After reading your reply regarding BB-code i started investigating.
I´m using NoScript and it was blocking it-mate.co.uk, after allowing scripts i get the advanced editor when clicking on the reply-button.
Problem solved.

I've been keeping up with all the great Windows 10 blog posts at TWC but just haven't had time to spend at the forums there these days.

Glad you figured out the problem with the editor & NoScript.
