Proof email has been read

Andy,

Is it possible to get proof an email has been read?

*Proof* ? No.

Why ? Because it depends on cooperation of the email-reader of the

Can touchpad settings be locked, or saved?

Defragger and SSD defrag ?

Mark,

IIRC, for a dual drive you can use the command "D1=0".

In all my time with the C64 I've only seen a double-drive configuration a

Defragger and SSD defrag ?

JJ,

JJ,

Obviously, the one which is fragmented, would take longer to
read the whole file data.

Not quite obviously I'm afraid. I think we may assume that an SSD is
random access. That means...

NoonName

1) what is the best defragger that will handle Win XP with HDD ?

I don't know about the *best*, but XP carries its own program for it. Aptly

Ian,

Should the question not be "What do you feel you really NEED to do on
Windows 10 that you miss not being able to do on Windows XP or Windows 7?"
?

Bob,

You can scratch that from the list. Under XP it just needs a MODE CON.
