    When I was in school, we had data structures and algos on 286 PCs, and obviously no internet. For learning the stuff, that was sufficient.

    That's understandable. I wouldn't put a machine with Windows XP on Internet.

    We'd roll up a xp virtual machine when we needed something special in our vcenter and then turn it off once done. No one trusted that shit to behave

    @sodaTab or just plug in your smartphone and use tethering. On xp you probably need to install the proper drivers for that.
