Hello little children your uncle is here.

I get bored easily.

What do I do when I'm bored?

Homework, house work, barn work, or play in slackware and hate myself. But there is one thing that I always play with to make fun of myself.

VirtualBox.

So I have a game for you. Find some random rear end OS for me to open in VB, tell me something to do in the os (aside from something that makes no sense and is ultimately a more dense thought than a black hole) and I will try to do it.

Make a game out of it.

Give me an OS and I'll do whatever you want me to do in it. Maybe you want me to do something specific that you're stuck on in slackware and see if I get farther? Maybe something broke in arch and you want me to try and break it and fix it! (I've broken a lot of stuff in arch this week I can probably relate). Maybe you just want me to do something really retarded.


I dunno, try me woman.

install windows 3.10.034e janus beta and draw a weinz0r in paint


But seriously, sometimes I'll install betas and poo poo like that just to check them out. So, try that maybe?

Slightly less impossible.

Start with Windows 3.11. Set the theme to Hotdog Stand. Upgrade the system through each subsequent edition of windows. Maintain Hotdog Stand's unparalleled contract and vibrant color throughout.

Full path is 3.11 -> 95 -> 95SE -> ME -> 2k -> XP -> Windows 7 -> Windows 8 -> Windows 8.1

Be sure to take desktop screenshots of each OS.

This is what
Arcane Velocity was like.


1) Make a working OS X 10.10 Beta VM

2) Turn it into a Domain Controller for at least one Windows client.

It is, there's a YouTube of it.

The color scheme gets ditched at Vista, I think.

Hello little children your uncle is here.

These are all hilarious ideas and I'm definately doing the cockdraw.

Two chickens at a hotdog stand fighting over the mustard.

Edit: The only issue that I'll have is getting 95, 98 and ME. 2K I have somewhere and my mom bought XP 3 times for more experience (or at least that's what she said at the time)

My challenge is this:

Install Windows 98

Install a free AOL trial from one of those promotional CDs they used to hand out everywhere and connect to the internet (can you even simulate a dialup modem in virtualbox??)

Install a web server

Make a hello world index.html and post a link to it in the thread

Tried this once. AOL couldn't validate the CD and decided it was bunk.

First Attempt. It's called an attempt for a reason.
