Thread: A curious error message from Chrome.

    You might be running into issues with older versions of TLS.

    Versions 1.0 and 1.1 are no longer supported and some browsers are now outright rejecting sites that are still trying to use anything lower than 1.2 and there are issues with trying to run 1.2 in older OS's like Win7.

    No.
    This is an old laptop running XP. I keep it for historical reasons - my grandchildren have never seen a 3.5" floppy disk and nor have they ever used a CD.
    I also have another old laptop which runs Windows 95 but it has no internet connection. Neither does it have a DVD drive (only CD-capable).
    In a cupboard in my garage I have two desktop PCs; one with DOS and Windows 3.1 and the other is a pre-Windows item with DOS and which has only one program - Wordstar, the first word processor we (where I worked) ever used. Prior to that it was all IBM "golfball" typewriters.

    Sentiment, I reckon.

    Yeah....I'm sure you're right. Just incompatibility, I think.

    Well Bruce, respect from keeping them from a historical context. I did a co-op (work experience) placement in another high school, and they had a proper old IBM "clone" XT in one of the labs, just like I'd had when I was little. For fun I turned it on just to hear the sound again, here is someone else doing the same:

    This was my first computer, the IBM 5155 luggable. Got it in my sophomore year in college. I had work/study in the college computer center, and the university system (8 university locations across the state) made a bulk purchase that was open to 'employees' that I got in on for only $1,084. It made me quite popular in the dorm, as nobody else on the floor had to go out in the rain and snow to the computer lab to do their 'floppy homework' and instead could do it right at my desk. I so miss those clicky keyboards.

    You can still get them. My son just spent $80 on one.

    I restored one back in 2012

    Still using it every day.
    I cannot get used to soft-touch keyboards after using these.

    I could do so for the laptops, Gerry, because I use them occasionally (old games! ).
    But the desktops are packed away in cartons in the garage - essentially archived. I'll leave their discovery to my son/daughter for when they clear the house out after I've been despatched!
