Windows 98 Updates

Nice show. Retro computing is cool and the Libretto sounds like an interesting piece of hardware.

As an aside, do you (or anyone else) know of a good repository of all of the service packs and updates that were released for Win 98 or other old Windows flavors?

There are actually a slew of updates and fixes for Windows 98 and 98 SE that have been released over the years. Some are official, and others are not. Below are a few links to maybe help you out. Also, I'll provide a link to WinWorld, which is a valuable resource for old OS's that can be a pain to find sometimes.

Hope this helps!

Fixing dead pixels

A Quick'n'Dirty way to sometimes fix dead pixels is to press on the LCD screen (as you described), but apply the pressure when you power on. I'm not sure what happens, but something seems to fuse in place, and the pixel works again. Don't know if it'll work on an entire column of pixels...
