  1. Yeah- there are a few things that need to change with 1EMU, that are beyond GC's control - or mine for that matter.. Most importantly, the software needs to be moved to https and use encrypted conections- the short version is starting January 1st, Apple is beginning to phase out apps and things that connect to the web using unencrypted connections. Google announced they will be following suit.. - Which means Microsoft won't be far behind. My understanding is the newest version of IPB supports this properly, so upgrading is a necessity. - the newest version also supports Php7, and MySQLi wh
  2. Yes, all related to the battle mod, sadly.
  3. Something went very, very wrong regarding the battle system mod - It is currently offline until such time as its reinstalled, and re enabled. Apologies for the issues. -M.
  4. It always amazes me to consider how far we have come in such a short amount of time. My Amiga 2K had a badass full height 60MB SCSI hard disk. My 3K had an even bigger 300MB drive. Now the entire contents of both of those drives sit on a couple of PCs - taking up virtually no space whatsoever, alongside my TOSEC Amiga .adf files. I remember downloading Amiga disk images from local BBSes using a 2400 baud modem. It would take me several hours to get one disk back in the early '90s. - And here we are today.. I still have the 2K, 3K, A c64, 128d, TI994a, And an Apple 2 sitting in the bas
  5. The last 'new' console I owned was a Sega Dreamcast. - So, no. The kids however do have a Wii.
  6. Two weeks is longer than I expected - I was shooting for 24 hours or less. As for the one post here, I am aware of that -- It was the only thing that corrupted here during transfer, and I ended up removing it.
  7. ...Of course, there might be intermittent access problems as the DNS servers repopulate with new information, but within 48 hours of so, it should be smooth sailing. if there are problems, post them here.
  8. 1 emulation dot com has been successfully moved to Octogon Group's largest, fastest server yet - a 64 bit Intel Core 2 Quad 9550 with 8 gigs of ram, a pair of 10,000 RPM SATA drives, and off-server backup and storage. There are also many back-end advancements which should result in 1Emu performing better than ever. Hugs & kisses. -Miskie.
  9. Hallmark gift & card stores put out their yearly Christmas ornament collections on July 5th. I don't think anyone is earlier than they are in the US.
  10. I see no reason to close shop - - However - Emulation has gone entirely niche market, and most people nowadays are only interested in a couple of classic games, that can be played on their phones. As for new developments, there are nearly none. Though trying downloads again is a possibility, they really aren't going to attract much - I suspect its because getting the emulator is easy - people who download want roms, and for that they go to torrent sites. Take a look at Arcade@home, the only thing that seems to keep them alive is the forum attack system. --Actually, Id suggest bringing t
  11. My technique is simple - While the applicant is waiting for final approval, I enter the given username and IP address into Google. if on the first page I see a reference to a site dedicated to logging Spmmer's IP addresses, I immediately delete the account. If instead, I discover that the user has signed up for a dozen or so forums in the last few days, all of which are unrelated --especially if the user signed up to forums in several different languages, I delete the account immediately. If I find references to the user that show actual posts being made in other places, or no reference at all
  12. Wait - an iPhone can't run an app that Apple doesn't approve of ? That pretty much sucks. On an Android based phone, installing an app from other than the Android Market involves adding a checkmark next to 'Allow installation of non-Market applications' in Settings/Applications, and that's it.
  13. Sadly, it has been my determination that the only real deterrent is manual account approval. Ive also noticed that once the spammers figure out that a human has the final say on signing up, they stop trying. Granted, the bots still try, but they are scripts running on a machine, and they know nothing. So, the questions stop the bots, the manual approval stops the humans. Done and done.
  14. Frankly, Id strip it down and ship the hardware to myself (pack the components in static bags, then box them with lots of bubblewrap). You will never sell it for what you want to get for it - as a rule - the only people who would buy your PC are enthusiasts, and they already know that they can save money by spending an afternoon building it themselves. Average consumers wont approach the PC because it doesn't have a brand name label stuck to it, making it impossible to get a review of it online, or comparison shop at Best Buy. Finally, Id ditch the case. One of the scrap metal people will pi
  15. Those sad people who would rather sit around all day with a remote in one hand, and their meat in the other. No job, no school, no relationships of any sort.. just a mountain of porn.
