Peter Sheil
From an internal staff/job matching system, describing a support role they wish to fill :-

... Operating systems include:Windows 3.11, 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP.

Yes, that role is for a client in the same area of work as you. If you e-mail me I'll tell you where it is but I don't talk about work details in public posts.

How do the dates show up on Windows 3.11 PCs? Is it 19105 now, or just 1905?

Oh gosh, now you're asking! I used to know the details 'cos we did a load of conversion work but I cannot remember them. I think a lot of the dates on files and things are OK but that trying to get batch command files to do stuff with dates goes wrong. Also the versions of office applications that run on Win 3.11 will have loads of problems.
