  1. I've been currently studying French and it's been a rather slow process. There aren't many French speakers around me, but I am slowly trudging through with Rosetta Stone and some audio programs. Do you guys speak any other languages besides English? I got into the French language after becoming a big fan of their music, arts, and style. They really seem like the originators of what we consider to be the front page of a Vogue magazine cover. Even watching their music videos from 30 years ago has had me saying that they were way ahead of their time. Their idea of romance and sexuality as well seems much more open and liberal as well.
  2. Woah, this thread is a great idea! I'll have to watch the astronomy video tomorrow, but check this out: Been seeing this all over the net today. Very heart warming video considering yesterday was April 1st (anybody remember when we called the place 1PornNation?)...
  3. Great review! If you could kindly revise your review to follow our 1Emu Reviews forum: http://www.1emulation.com/forums/forum/36-1emulationcom-reviews-reviews/ ... this would indeed be the first 2014 video game review! So pretty much just follow the pinned threads and add some photos and I'll move this thread there.
  4. Welcome to the family! Oh, very cool. I've definitely noticed a surge in vapes. Curious, how is that going for you (business wise)? I've heard of Halo Cigs, Vape4Life, Phantom Smoke, White Cloud, etc. There are definitely a lot. Do you sell them with nicotine as well? I personally don't use them, but I know many that do.
  5. I was baffled when the word "cloud" became so popularized in 2012. Everyone continues to and is now skydriving, dropboxing, etc. all the files on their PC to the Internetz. Soon enough we find out the Internet is totally being spied on and (not to mention the continuous concern of regular sites getting hacked since the infancy of the Internet) makes you think why anyone would put their personal files online? Can you really trust these companies with their "security" and "encryption" of your files? To make matters worse, Windows 8.1 by default has cloud integration deeply ingrained into the OS (see here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2111442/how-to-disable-windows-8s-deep-cloud-integration-piece-by-piece.html). So seeing as I know we have a pretty computer savvy user base here -- do any of you actually backup your personal files online? It would be cool to have a truly safe solution for non-local backups of files.
  6. I heard some people signing up using a proxy and an address in the USA routed to Canada. Heard of anything like that being possible?
  7. Coldstone Steve Austin? He's not an Ice cream cone ... it's Stone Cold And yeah, it's true -- everything is scripted now which really sucks. They use to have only bullet points in the past, but now it's literally word for word lines fed to every wrestler. It has made the product pretty redundant and mundane, but what can you do...
  8. 1Emu has always been filled with wrestling fans and I being one of them. Been debating for a while if I should get the network as it's $60 for 6 months (not too shabby considering you get to watch all live PPVs too). Only problem is Watch-Wrestling (google it) already has all this stuff for free. Any of you guys subscribe to it? If so, what's the experience been like? Worth it or just enjoyable for the first 48 hours? Here's the article they recently did on the network with Vince McMahon from Forbes magazine: http://www.forbes.com/sites/msolomon/2014/03/26/vince-mcmahons-over-the-top-move-why-the-billionaire-ceo-is-betting-big-on-the-new-wwe-network/
  9. Was on reddit earlier today and stumbled on the trailer for the new TMNT and had to express my dismay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCjsWpM9zFU First off -- this movie literally looks like a reincarnation of the Transformers series while replacing the autobots with turtles. And don't get me started with Megan Fox. Really? This chick looks like she had a crap load of plastic surgery and not to mention I would put money that the only reason why she's in this film is that she's sucking on Michael Bay's _______. It's just sad to see Hollywood just rehashing these movies over and over. It's no longer about the art, but the money.
  10. And we use to have an IRC channel for many years. I'm not sure I would be a proponent on reviving it though only because I always felt that it took away from activity here on the forums. What do you think? g+ as in google+, my friend. And yes, I agree there is no shortage of pretentious young people nowadays who think much of themselves because of YouTube partnerships and Twitter. I mean ... it literally becomes a source of income for them, and while I admire those who have talent such as singers or musicians to put themselves out there in a competitive industry, giving back to the community is just as important since it's the community that inflated their egos to begin with. I just watched this a little white ago and thought it relevant: As for an irc channel, I suppose you have a point that it detracts from activity here, which would be a shame. We need a group project or something we can all get involved in to get things going, y'know? And not necessarily for gaming, although I have no qualms about that either lol. Oh gosh, this son of a bitch (excuse my French), Mr. Fousey... I've seen quite a few of his vids and they are all utter bullshit. He adds his sentimental music in the background, dresses up like he's Martin Luther King, and does these "experiments", which are utterly ridiculous, and sometimes even at the risk of others being scarred for life (see the bullying and kidnapping videos he's done). None of these experiments are anyway near scientific and are greatly flawed. A homeless kid walking on the street like that will most likely only raise one alarm in someone's head and that's "SCAM!!" Crap like this needs to be banned from YouTube. Of course, he's probably getting thousands of dollars because everyone signs up and watches more of it for their daily entertainment. He's not fighting for any cause except his wallet. All of it is disgusting. As they say, all you need is a few dumb people to make you famous. Indeed, he has done just that.
  11. To be fair, I have seen quite a few people with big followings have friends tag and take pictures of them, but sadly none of them are truly "famous". It's sad because a lot of this is truly not realistic, and, as a result, we get massive ego inflations, and just all-around jackasses roaming the streets. Most of all, he/she will probably believe he/she is more valuable and worthy than every other human on this planet.
  12. What is G+? Never heard of it. And yeah, pretty much agree with everything you said, but sadly it's not just Hollywood anymore. It's a new generation of self-entitled people who think they are famous. And I mean, why they shouldn't if they starred in a few short films or posed their ass or tits in a few modeling shots, while gaining a huge following? And we use to have an IRC channel for many years. I'm not sure I would be a proponent on reviving it though only because I always felt that it took away from activity here on the forums. What do you think?
  13. It's a shame what the Internet has become in the year 2014. I have stopped counting how many shock factor videos and blogs I have ran into online. All these top 50 countdowns, prank videos, and obvious bullshit that keeps getting the people to successfully watch or partake in this trivial nonsense. So many message boards have died (glad we're still here! toast!) and as a result have led us to create virtual extensions of ourselves at the expense of our anonymity, privacy, and most of all -- our unfiltered word. I will always miss the past, but I also realize how wonderful, and rare a place like 1Emulation truly is. A place that still holds die hard members (some for nearly over a decade) that still share their life stories and can do so freely without persecution, prejudice, or thinking if I should have said this or that. Do you agree? Disagree? Agree to disagree? Would love to know! Anyway, it's been a while since I posted a thread. My goal is to a post a new thread and news post a day. If I can do that, it will really help this place out, and I encourage you all to do the same if at all possible.
  14. Hello Ghosti! Welcome to 1emulation! As the owner of this site since its inception in the year two thousand and two (2002), I wish you an amazing and pleasant stay. As the others have said, it is only a mirage if it appears we're dead, as we are actually quite alive and breathing!
  15. Superman!! Hell yeah! Good to see you brother.
  16. Any idea on an ETA of the next release then?
  17. What happened to MAME that we won't hear from it anytime soon?
  18. I'm still here. Just finding the right time to use whatever energy is left in my day for this place. If anyone knows how to create a great daily schedule or daily foundation that is easy to stick to -- hit me up.
  19. Coming from Emsley, must be legit. ....just realized how old this post is. Is Emsley even still alive? Woah, Ghosty! Welcome back man. What are you up to these days? Yeah, Emsley is still lurking somewhere. He's pretty active on Facebook. Make sure to like our Facebook page: http://facebook.com/1emulation
  20. Feel so lonely right now .... what you all up to this 2014 season to be sexual?
  21. Hey brother! Thanks so much for the kind message. Yep, we all here are fans of retrogaming, and glad you stumbled upon 1emulation. Our site is now entering its 12th year on the Internet. We are honored to have you here and hope to see you soon posting on our message boards.
  22. This thread from 2008 should help you find some great Dreamcast games: http://www.1emulation.com/forums/topic/28560-your-top-picks-for-dreamcast-games/?hl=%2Bdreamcast+%2Bgames&do=findComment&comment=288172 I wonder how the emulator would run on my tablet....
  23. Jesus... this is quite the thread bump. Over 10 years later .... Okay, first things first -- why are you using kawaks? Why not use MAME? I'm sure that emulator will save your hiscores with no problem.
  24. Didn't even know it existed. Got any links or videos to it?
  25. So fascinating. So I'm guessing for every cadaver you work with that it's extremely important to first know the religious denomination, correct? What if he/she is atheist -- is there a specific protocol for that as well?
