That old classic..

You leave a folder copying whilst you go to sleep, only to wake up and read:

"The filename(s) would be too long for the destination folder. You can shorten the filename and try again, or try a location that has a shorter path."

And folk say:

"Thank goodness we don't have 8.3 character limits on filenames anymore.."

Note, there are lower folder number limits on things like USB memory sticks than HD's..

Now, I wonder about PCMCIA RAM cards..

    Now if only I had something working to test them in and see if the battery is still good !

    Never really found anything better since..

    @Nanos Woaow :D

    I remember when they came out, a revolution in laptop expandability.

    First only memory extension but later almost everything you could think of.

    Especially modems, network card and extra disk drives.

    And then a couple of years later just gone from the market.

    I probably also have one or two lying in a box somewhere but no computer to try them in.
