Updating windows 98se
and it didn't get much better until the rewritten serial driver came out.
All of the versions of MS-DOS / PC-DOS at that time had serious shortcomings in the serial port BIOS (which at that time was practically worthless as it wasn't interrupt-driven, nor did it have a buffer) and the serial drivers built into DOS (which wasn't much more than a handoff to the serial routine in the BIOS).The application comprises all updates released for the Windows 98 Second Edition and will most definitely add more compatibility, stability and overall performance to your old PC.Although Microsoft never released a service pack for Windows 98 SE, this is a pack of patches available through the online Windows Update site and added a little something extra.One year in the mid 1980s he visited his midwest clan over Thanksgiving, and the return trip consisted of an Indianapolis to Chicago hop then a plane change for the Chicago to his home airport hop.The first hop went fine but the second hop was delayed due to problems with the aircrafts hydraulic system (the mechanics and the pilot both thought that having landing gear that worked would be nice...).One of the comments the gentleman made was that the design engineers "never get a chance to talk to the end users, or to the radio enthusiasts..." He likened the design process to "We get some specs and maybe a wish list of features, we design something, build a prototype, then throw the new baby over the wall into marketing and production.
The designers get some feedback from marketing, less from production, and never, but never, hear anything back from the taxi drivers, ambulance drivers, firemen, school bus drivers, construction workers, the military, or the cops on the beat".

The gentleman sitting next to him in the waiting room was interested in the radio and asked about it ‑ he'd never seen a six-frequency HT-200 (stock was two channels maximum) with eight switchable PL encode tones (max was one tone, and that required the long case) and a 16-button backlit touchtone pad (touchtone in any form wasn't available at all) ‑ and they started talking.
