Elderly computers...

So on Wednesday evening I was cheerfully reading a board and went to move to the next page and my mouse won't move the pointer. Scroll wheel still working, buttons working but no movement.

Have had to revert to the old mouse - which doesn't have a scroll wheel! Aaaargh.

We must do some sorting out of computers. We currently have set up and running a DR-Dos box and this W98 box. In the study there is what ought to be a linux box but we've never managed to get it running properly. Under the desk in here there is another windows box we were given - we've never even set it up enough to discover which version of windoze it has! But something will have to happen as I'm about to have to use a web-based database which requires a minimum of W2000 (and doesn't even promise to work for Macs).

Which reminds me I must sort out something about T's webpage which we broke the first time we tried to update it and so has had the same "place-holding" photo up for over 18 months. (Has anyone any recommendations for writing a webpage?)

If it's the box I'm thinking of, it's got Win2k on board. But I could be wrong. :)

Even if I am, it should *run* Win2k at least acceptibly. I also have a spare Win2k licence - let me know off-line if you need it (Windows 2000 isn't difficult to install).

In what way is T's webpage broken?

Do you write html okay? How did you make the page to start with?

I use dreamweaver which my son gave me. It makes life very easy but I can use html and FTP too.
