Razorback hosts a wide variety of goodies, ranging from some of my own works in various sizes to mirrors of other obscure software that might be of use.
All the shortposts!

- I've been downscaling on old hardware a little bit. One of my monitors is going out the door soon.

- In addition to the new release of Infsect, I've updated the network boot disks listed in my Windows PXE install guide to make use of this version, and some new disks have been added with other DOS network drivers. Windows 95D Lite 1.6a, a minor bugfix release, is soon to follow!

- I've spent many hours chasing every fix for every gotcha I've run into, but it's been 19 months since the last Infsect version. I think I really need to just leave it there and get this damn thing out there this week. Just gotta update the documentation and dearly hope I don't run into yet another problem...

Windows 98, Powered by PulseAudio!
November 05, 2021 - This is the kind of shit that would happen to me sometimes without me even noticing whenever I needed to capture VGA output with audio.

These links are largely comprised of sites which are known to work well under old browsers, and provide more useful resources for older computers.
- FTP - Razorback's anonymous FTP server. Connect with just about any client and download programs, Windows 9x remasters, and other goodies. (Modern browsers are killing off FTP, so you can alternatively access the FTP server's contents through HTTP/HTTPS)
- Game Servers - Details on the various game servers Razorback hosts.
A collaborative website loaded with reviews of countless prerelease builds of Windows and other operating systems.
My friend's website, and home of the Lizard Republic.
Run by blurry, home of Windows 98 Dream Edition and other such things.
Personal website of THEBaratusII, an administrator of the DOSBox Deathmatch Club.
An organization for regular deathmatch events of classic PC games through DOSBox.
Another 90's-inspired website by ZLegendaryGamer for gamers.
A static HTML website designed around Cirno from the Touhou Project.
hunt3r.me - A site about technology, cosplay, video, and retro stuff.
- Nathan's Toasty Technology Page - the legendary archive of various GUIs and sins of Microsoft in its quest to dominate the web browser market. The way it's remained as simple, lightweight, and fast as it was many years back directly serves as inspiration for Razorback's own legacy-friendly design.
- GUIdebook Gallery - another gallery of GUI screenshots, and a website that was integral to really get me deeper into retro computing 14 years back. This site has not been updated since 2006. (HTTPS required)
- MDGx - a very large website containing tons of materials, archived documents, tips and tricks for old DOS and Windows, including an INF guide I reguarly looked to when remastering Windows 9x. The site is kind of clunky to use and rather painful to the eyes, but otherwise it's great.
- Ralf Brown's Interrupt List - an HTML version of the most comprehensive reference of x86 interrupts available, last updated in 2000 and converted by Marc Perkel. A good resource for assembly programmers, but also a bit difficult to skim through.
- INT 21h Reference - a descriptive reference sheet for interrupt vector 21h, used by MS-DOS to carry out all sorts of essential functions.
- doom2.net - a site containing plenty of information and downloadables for all things Doom.
- R. Loew Electronics Consulting - a website run by Rudolph Loew originally to sell his Windows 9x patches, now maintained by his family in his memory with all of his works available for free. (HTTPS, TLS 1.2 or later required)
- PowerDVD3000 - a really great old school website documenting old computers and VHS stuff. Plenty of downloadable goodies here too.
- Un4seen Developments - developers of various audio-related programs, including XMplay. Works on Windows 95!
Legacy operating systems I have reworked to make more useful in a variety of cases.
- Windows 95D - a rough attempt at integrating some useful updates into the setup process, as well as adding certain Windows 98 functions to Windows 95. This is buggy and is not recommended for regular use.
- Windows 95D Lite - tightly integrates many drivers and updates into Windows 95 while providing an experience highly similar to that of Windows 95B.
- Redtoast - the codename for an abandoned remaster of Windows 98SE that restores the older but faster Explorer shell from Windows 95.
Some small programs written entirely by me.
- Infsect - a command line INF manipulation tool. This program offers built-in interactive prompting for input from a user, should it need to be used in a batch script.
- APMTOGL - toggles APM poweroff in Windows 9x on or off by modifying WIN.COM.
- Hierma (Linux-based) - a set of Bash scripts that can be used to dynamically remaster Windows 9x with various tweaks and your own drivers.
- LAYTSPLT - a program used to split layout INFs in automated cabinet rebuild procedures for Windows 9x remasters.
- The First Cell - Insanely hectic arcade action in the form of ASCII text characters crammed into 4.77 MHz.

These throwaway sites I've written in the past were specifically instrumental to carrying out the functions of the videos they've appeared in. Expect these to have a ton of pointers to nonexistent pages.
- ElectroDeliver - one of the worst dial-up ISPs of the era.
- JimboVideo - the official homepage of JimboVideo, a video production company with a slice of life but also a strong ambiguity as to who's in charge of it. A variant from 1996 was made for another video as well, but I've since had to hide it away for various reasons.
- SquidNet - another dial-up and broadband ISP which is somewhat more respected but also has notoriety for censoring content it doesn't agree with.
- Baleen's Bassy Web Page! - a website originally run by a largemouth bass. Thankfully it is not anymore.
- 240P POLITICS - the web hub for the notable online political TV show.
- Twin Razorback - Um...?!
