You know what annoys me about the internet? Those dumb comfirmation pictures where you have to type in some randomly-generated code to confirm you're a human being and not a machine. I usually don't mind these but when they decide to put the letters in some freaky-ass font where you can't distinguish between a 1 and an L, or decide to put some silly background that makes the letters harder to read, that's when it annoys me. Especially when they only give you a certain amount of tries to do it.
Well folks, I've just made this to make up for my idiocy in the "update you blog" topic. Right. That, and sorry for making top poster today. Yeah. Sorry. In other news, I'm loving the new CnC 3 demo. Right.
My R4DS came in the mail today, which is amazing since I ordered it yesterday. Only problem is, I'm a bit worried because of this: This troubles me because my R4 is gray. I guess I'm gonna have to wait till my microSD card gets here to find out if I've been ripped off... dear god I hope not! If it does work, then Gamecop and I have a secret evil plan for writing a review. Aaaaaand now, a list of things Mooney has for sale: - PC (AMD Athlon 64 3200+, ATI Radeon 9800 PRO, 1GB RAM, 160GB har
So today i got a letter back from this scholarship i had applied to. Only 100 people are allowed to apply and it is invite only. It was for a dull ride up to and including a doctorate. It was an amazing chance. I did not get it. I am kinda sad in that it would have been an amazing win, but at the same time, it was to a university that i wasnt really thrilled to go to (although it is still an amazing institution). This has cemented in my decision to attend the University of Illinois-Urbana
Cool, I made some custom content blocks for my blog: What I'm playing on Kaillera, What I'm playing on DS Wifi, and Which colleges have sent me mail. Good stuff! They're over there, I think --> So, yeah... send me a challenge... go on #1emu on EFNet... make your own kind of music... wewt.

Some new CPS-2 games were added last MAME; pretty sweet if you ask me. This has also allowed me to almost finish a project I'm working on. I'd like to release soon-ish, but with me, soon-ish could mean a year or two. lol On a side note, I just started a new job, so busy busy for a while ^^
I've been asking this question almost everyday to myself when it comes to 1Emulation. So when am I ready to give up on this place? Should I ever give up? One thing is for sure, I don't want this site to turn into another Zophar or website with cobwebs all over the place. It's frustrating as a site admin to browse other websites that are just doing far better than you are. I guess that can be phrased "jealousy", but I really want to give this place one last boost. I don't know what I'll do if I c
So my past two blog posts were rather short and pointless entries that I was in St. Louis. It was quite an experience for me. During the orientation session of my second interview (Tuesday), the dean came in to inform us about the coming bad weather that would most probably ground our flights (we were all from out of state). That was very bad news for me since I had a major History test the next day I was hoping to study for when I got home. Every chance I got I checked the flight status on the
After 1 year, 1240 posts, and a staff position, I have been promoted to moderator! This is really cool... I can edit peoples' posts, and close threads, and move and merge... So, yeah, I hope to do the best I can and all that inspirational stuff, but I really just want to keep the forums clean. You better watch out... Mooney's gone blue! Also, Sturmy and Diso have recently prodded me into getting MAME32k with Garou and LB2... so if you ever want to feel really good about your fighting game s
Well as you may have already Realized, i have caught a Craze to the Dreamcast lately. This is because my friend has given me a Free one This takes me off of the slow and Choppy Chankast to full speed Games on the Dreamcast So Ritually when ever i buy or receive a second-hand system i always open it up to Clean the insides and the outsides without damaging the system regardless of which one it is. (Ive opened all systems execpt for the 3rd gen consoles and the Systems earlier then the Sega M
It's been over 5 months since the last time I posted in my blog. My life has been busier than ever lately and spare time for 1Emulation has been dwindling. Over the years we have tried countless times to boost 1Emulation activity by bringing in interest creating devices. Some ideas worked wonderfuly, others failed instantaneously. Over the course of the next few weeks and months, I still will have barely any time to put forth into 1Emulation. What we need are people to create topics that interes
Ever since Summer, I've decided to get new music while ocassionally going through my old music list which originally had 1623 songs. Rather than go through it manually, I decided to leave the shuffle feature on and ended up getting the same songs like 3 times (Thank you winamp). Until recently, I decided to put the new music on hold, turn the shuffle off, and listen to every song from A to Z. I've deleted a lot and had to edit a lot of the tags that were badly named. I'm now left with about 1300
I started looking at Royal Card (Slovakia, encrypted) on the funworld.c driver in mame. It has a preliminary status due to encryption. Basically I started working by comparing it to the non-encrypted Royal Card (Austria, set 1). I was able to figure out how half of the bits affect the other bits:
00 -> 22
01 -> 23
02 -> 02
03 -> 03
04 -> 20
05 -> 21
06 -> 00
07 -> 01
08 -> 2a
09 -> 2b
0a -> 0a
0b -> 0b
0c -> 28
0d -> 29
0e -> 08
I got my first acceptance to a medical school today so my sabbatical is over. Even though it's for a state school, it's still something so I can now relax. I still have more interviews to go to at some more prestigious places but the urgency is much less now. Yippee.
It is quite cold. It is so cold that I can not be outside for 30 minutes without my face totally freezing. And tomorrow is the SuperBowl! Thank god it's not going to be in Green Bay, or they'd be playing with an ice cube instead of a football, and Prince would have to wear a parka! Damn all of you who live in warm climates!
So...you know that you are doing well in a class when you can take a test, fail it, and then go in a second time to an easier test and still fail it. Not to mention the next day failing a test that depended on the one before it... My physics teacher has decided to stop grading out tests because the class average was below a 60%...Oh Yeah...we are that smart...
