Old Computers

Recently I came across a wonderful site for really really old computers. You should have a look at it.
And a cherry on top of all this, don't miss to see the "Ads" for those computer.

An old man once said

An old man recently told me:

When a poor man tries to be with rich men is like: A cat trying to walk with cows/camels; Either the cat will get crushed or soon it will be under a pile of big sh*t.

7z changing default program issue

Recently I had problem with 7z File Manager (I don't exactly remember the issue), so I was playing around it. I messed it up and so I had to reinstall. I found a big version upgrade (I was using 2.x while the new was 9.x).
Now after uninstalling old version and installing the latest version, I didn't restarted the window$, so I had to associate the .zip and .rar files manually with the 7z program to open the files. I selected to "open with" and browsed to the path of the 7z program and made default program "7z.exe". This is where the issue started. There are 3 exe files in the installation path of 7z, viz;  - 7z.exe  - 7zFM.exe  - 7zG.exe
7z.exe is actually the program for command line (cmd). 7zFM.exe is the 7z-File-Manager for GUI. And I never tried to find out what 7zG.exe is for.
Now I wanted to change the default program for .zip and .rar to 7zFM.exe instead of 7z.exe. Window$ didn't let me do that. Everytime I try to change, it would revert back…
