the dark wizard of uncreativity then punched him in the face... repeatedly...

  1. I don't know....Boat Anchor?
  2. Donate it to someone that does not need to use notepad.
  3. binary data is binary data, no matter where it's stored:

    so, convert it to a simple backup storage server
    on a wired LAN, and use XCOPY to do manual backups
    from a .bat batch file e.g.:

    D:\> XCOPY foldername X:\foldername /s/e/v/d

    Where,
    D: is a data partition on the local system
    X: is a remote partition on the backup server


    That's what we do with our aging 875 chipsets:
    we also turn them OFF when not in use,
    which prolongs their useful life even more.


    HINT: systems that are powered OFF completely
    are totally immune to viruses and malware infections :)

  4. put the lightest version you can of linux on it and run folding @ home :)
  5. it barely can run notepad... :kaola: <<<LOL
