    Darn it, I'll need to upgrade the network...

    Just been handed a new piece of software by a member of staff to help support a pupil in the school and I've just read the spec. Looks like I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go to Win 95 AND upgrade all the RAM .. grrr .. lol ..

    Oddly, it may not work on Windows 7. You could get away with XP.

    Oh I know, I've had this before .. I just love it when staff come with "new" software they've had recommended by someone ..

    And indeed, poor 3.1 .. I mean, just because they're dropping the support for XP doesn't mean they should leave 3.1 out in the dark huh! lol ..
