This version tends to flutter only. I've made some modifications with swivels added. The hook can entangle ...

Re: WIN 10 problem

Thanks. I've some pictures and writing in there, I hope a clean installation won't wipe those out. It is not virus. It is Win 10 incompatible with my old modem, plus the troublesome passwords. Downloaded one of the installation USB tool, but it takes 1hr and I can't get the USB tool to work. Maybe t...
