    Um and when you shift into overdrive ... you get Win32 extensions?

    I've got hundreds of quarters... but they're all pre 1965, 90% silver, so they're worth ~ $4.00 each.

    So you lose $3.75 every time you put one in there.

    No, you have to pause for updates and a reboot.

    I lost nearly $25 in quarters. I have a coin-op pool table. I had 100 of them to insert in the pool table, which when it got full I'd take the quarters back out to be used again. The key for the coin box got legs about five years ago, and I don't desire to cut into the coin box. (Yes I could pick the lock too if I really had the ambition.)

    You'll find it when you move.. My parents had found the 'hidden rock key' when they moved that was lost when I was a teen. We couldn't remember where we put the rock.

    I miss vintage arcade machines, lost so much money in them during the 80's.

    Anybody ever play Battlezone on the original arcade?
