  • Perhaps if Ashens and Dan Nerd³ are in lockdown this Xmas, they could play off on old computer based advent calendars, rather than going out and buying the ridiculously overpriced real ones.

  • You should so send the £8.50 to him, and see if he lives there ;) As for the've got a junky rabbit, a squirrel that either a) froze to death or b) got caught in the act ;) and a sad lonely reindeer stuck up in the tree. I know Windows 3.11/3.1 was basic, but this for their standards is taking the piss!!

  • I wish computers stopped evolving at windows 98. Smartphones suck big sucks and have destroyed humanity. 5G service will make people even more impatient and I hope Verizon shoves all the 5g antennas and motto mods up they're ass.

  • (3:27) No Maximize, but the button is still there. It's just like many _Shovelware Diggers_ episodes on the *Pixelmusement* (Ancient DOS Games) SEworld channel.

    • @Nostalgia Nerd yeah it was brilliant, it must been some years ago since it stopped. i forget the number, i think it was three single numbers, like a'555' or '888'. useed to go to go the page and then click next and it would go to the next page which was christmas art. it was great, im sure you could find it somewhere on the internet under ceefax artwork

  • Make a better calendar yourself. Te rabbit is obviously from Bambi, and what the fuck would expect from a cloud? Did you ever have an advent calendar? If so, you MUST recognise different pictures that have to do with christmas. No? I thought as much. Why are you mocking something you do not understand? Make your own fucking advent calender. If you are too stupid to see the obvious, then noone can help you....

    • Technically, without wishing to add drama. The Windows I show booting at 0:43 isn't actually the Windows I'm using to demonstrate the calendar. BUT, It is still Windows 3.11. I just tend to use 3.1 and 3.11 interchangeably. Because they're pretty similar.
