Birthday

Sweet. The big 1-6. Awesome.   Got 3 emails informing me that it was my b-day today. One was from DCEmu, one from MaxConsole, and one from Agozer. I noticed that the DCEmu message was more advertisement than good wishes:   So yeah... so far I've received a few checks which I am supposed to use to buy a Wii, and a mouse pad with a gel wrist rest (say that ten times fast). Later today I'm having a LAN party with 8 of my friends. Nothing but WWII FPS as far as the eye can see. It's gonna rock.

My school is flocked up

So much crazy stuff has happened in the past week at my school. Normally we're pretty normal, just your run-of-the-mill public High School, but not this week...   The first thing that happened was a kid got arrested for sexual harassment. Apparently he posted some nasty things on MySpace, and a few people printed his comments out and showed them to our resident police officer (we have a police officer at our school instead of a security guard... he has guns). I know this kid pretty well, so I wo

A new outlook on life

A few days ago, when Gamecop asked me to write a tutorial on DLDI, I had no idea how big of a project it would become. I wrote the first draft including 2 of the 3 Windows apps in just a few hours, but since then I've found myself using multiple computers and OS's to get more info. I've used two Windows PCs, one MacOS X laptop, and an Ubuntu Linux Live CD. I've visited chishm's website so much I've practically memorized it, I've talked on #dsdev for an hour trying to figure out UNIX commands, an

Happiness and desparation

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

Moderatorship and other stuff

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

Cold

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!

Camping and a New Phone

Camping On Friday one of my friends called me up and invited me to go to his cabin in northern-ish WI for the weekend. Not knowing how fricking cold it would be, I eagerly accepted. He informed me that we would be leaving at 9:00 AM on Saturday and I should pack for out door conditions. Then my parents went into an overprotective rampage and made be pack a bedroll that was quite possibly 2 feet in diameter, with a sleeping bag, 2 flannel sheets, a pillow, and 2 blankets.   The next day

I'm Thinkin' Geek

Finally, a site that actually has useful stuff! www.thinkgeek.com Good stuff there. I plan on buying many, many, many things from that site. Like this, for example: TV-B-Gone Could be useful if it works with the TV in some of my more boring classes... They have many other cool things too. Laser guided missile systems, cathode lights, caffeine pills... I need more monehs... buy my computer... Wow, I'm really desperate about that, aren't I? MEH! Buy my computer.

Snowboarding and Christmas

This past Sunday I attempted snowboarding for the first time in my life. Suffice to say I no longer have knees. Well, they are in bad shape. My left knee is completely covered in multi-colored bruises, and my right knee is swelling up to the size of a ping pong ball. I blame the snow at the resort for this. There was no real snow AT ALL. Only mad made snow, which was really just small chunks of ice. Every time I fell, I either hit solid ice or deep, wet ice. And, since this was my first day sno

User Bar Madness and one last plea

FIRST: PLEASE PLEASE, WON'T SOMEONE GET IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT AND BUY MY PC?!? I'm getting desperate here... there are things I need to buy, but with my current shortness on cash I cannot afford them. So please, think about buying my PC... or my NDS homebrew set up, or my GBA flashcart... You'll make so many people happy. Oh yeah and user bars ftw

Staff

Yesterday I was promoted to a staff news poster. Yay! Happiness and sunshine all around. However, today was a snow day... but I was sick. Life's a biatch.

Firefox 2

So I just dl'd Firefox 2 Beta 2, and I must say: I LOVE IT! It improves on many of Firefox 1.5's great features, like plug-ins and extensions, but it also gained some new features. It now feels a lot like Opera; Little [x] 's on the tabs, sleeker design... and other stuff. Another cool thing is a built in spell checker! If you misspell something, it underlines it in red. Then you right click the word, and it gives you spelling suggestions! Now none of you n00bz (<- it didn't underline that?!

In the Swing of Things

WOOO! First week of school done! Only 176 more days! Can't wait! This is only my first weekend during school, but already looks to be one of the best. My parents are out of town OVERNIGHT and they left me many monehs for f00d. I just ordered me some Jimmy John's, but the delivery boy forgot my root beer. Anyway, I just dl'd Crank, Monster Hunter: Freedom (PSP), and Blade Dancer: LoL (PSP). This weekend will be AWESOME! In addition, my friend's 16th b-day party is this Sunday. This school year

Last Blog Before School

Damn... I guess I knew I'd have to go back someday. I really wished summer would never end (don't we all? ). So now here I am spending my last day of freedom at my computer. Wheeee! I guess I kind of am looking forward to school a bit, tho. Now at least I'll have something to DO for half the day. Also, my brain is probably mush after my summer (a.k.a. game fest) so I need to get it back into shape. But until then, I'll still enjoy 1emu and all its sauciness! Peace! - Mooney

DSpot 1st Birthday

Some of you may know, and some may not, of this nice little forum called DSpot. DSpot is a forum for talking about all things Nintendo from the Wii to the DS. It's still a small forum with just over 100 members, and lately there's been a bit of a posting draught. Also, today marks 1 year sice Twilightlink and Kobayashi opened up DSpot to the public. Hopefully DSpot will be able to last another year and gain another 100 members, which is why I come to you: PLEASE VISIT US!!! DSpot is a really c

I Hate The Internets

They are evil. All of them. Especially mine, AT&T Yahoo! DSL. It sucks monkey gonads. After AT&T bought SBC, my internet connection randomly dropped, tech support was as helpful as a cage of dead squirrels ("Duuuhh... reboot?"), Firefox started glitchen' out , and I'm trying to convince my parents to get Road Runner Cable internet. I am THIS close { } to convincing them. Wish me luck with that... Anyway, on a lighter side, I have decided to build my own PC. I'll give you a peek at some
