It just goes to show that sometimes the old way is the only way even if its slow. I can't even remember when the last time I had use dos. Man that brings back memories of a time before windows. Back when if you had an 80 meg mfm drive you had room to spare.

Heh I still use DOS on a regular basis and I can imagine there is a way I could have done this in windows but DOS is actualy the faster rought... no GUI showing the Application. Just good ole text goin so fast you can barely read the number of sectors been copied.
Speakin of that time for a Status report...

... lol ok just gotta say this...

4 monks walk out of a computer store.
1 says to the others "Look at the kid with the tiger tail."
And the monks turn and watch the kid enter the store.
I say to myself "What are 4 monks in orange robes and bald doing at a computer store?"
I proceed to walk into the store wearing my tiger tail.

And this is an actual event that took place yesterday althou I am not shure what they said.

^.^ just glad to be a head turner and not in the spinning head cence

They were probably saying something like "You think we could use his testicles for medicine?" Mad
