Ice Bear

Todays fun

Has been sponsored by elfenkind, Her SO, MS Virtual PC and Soulmate MP3 player.

Last Sunday elfenkind lent me the aforementioned MP3 player. At first I thought it was out of the goodness of her heart, but I now realise that it was a heart as cold and black as the vast emptiness of the cosmos.
I was informed that it would only work with Windows 98, and here was a copy of MS Virtual PC although it probably wouldn't work with that, but would have to be used with a Win 98 installation on a real PC.

I now suspect that both of them knew that the geek in me wouldn't rest until I had somehow forced that MP3 player to work with Win 98 installed on a virtual PC.That was Sunday, and I'm still hammering away. I should have been in bed sleeping at least an hour ago, but dammit, I *will* make it work.

At least I have Panda Licorice and energy bars to keep me going...
