    Msg 1:

    OK, so we all know Windows XP reaches end-of-support on April 8 2014, right? Well I have made a virtual machine [virtualbox, of course] with Windows XP in it. Since WIndows XP is no longer supported (as of apr 8) and is more than 7 yrs old (12!), I am willing to upload it to my Google Drive and share you guys a link. (I won’t be able to do that until next month tho )

    AND How come you guys don’t have Office XP? You have Office 2K, but not XP which IS unsupported and is also about 12 years of age too! Please try and get it up, it will make my life better (and I might be able to add it to the Windows XP SP3 VM i made).

    My reply:
    I've only posted like 5 posts on this on WinBoards.

    I've put a new link on the homepage for people like you.


    -----------
    MY THOUGHTS:
    Msg 1: ummmmm what pony avatar??
    Msg 2: far out, just trying to be helpful to the goddamn community there! And they give me "a link on the homepage for "people like me""???? Whaddaya mean people like ME?

    So yeah. Are those ppl really THAT rude? What should I do next?

    It seems they are entirely superficial. They already think to know who you are...(prejudice)
    Best is to leave...:)...they are unfriendly without reason...

    Create two new accounts. Use a pic of Ronald Reagan for one and a pic of Richard Nixon for the other. They're bound to accept one of them.
