  • Larger Font Styles
    Guest:

    Just a quick heads-up that I've implemented larger font variants of our forum's light and dark page styles. You can select the style of your choice by scrolling to the footer of any page here. This might be more comfortable (it is for me) for those with high-resolution displays where the standard fonts, while permitting a lot of text to fit on the screen, might be uncomfortably small.

    (You can permanently dismiss this notification with the “X” at the upper right.)

    write protect error

    InitDisk

    I may be atypical but when InitDisk was released I thought I have a bunch of USB drives that I can run it on (I currently have something over 30 USB drives) would be nice if I didn’t have to relaunch it each time.
