  1. Have you tried all of the software that is linked at the bottom of this wiki article? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UHarc
  2. For future reference, shave half your sack before you get to the hospital for surgery. That should help them figure which one.
  3. Hey, I like SIDs. I'll download your thing. Have you posted at Lemon64 forums? That's where the bulk of online C64 fans are at.
  4. Totally clean, jelly bean No wait, I had wine today but that's totally legal
  5. My first cartridge game system was ColecoVision, and MESS does it pretty decently. Also, it's just nice to be able to see what all those systems were like.
  6. I think I first saw him in the original Apple Dumpling Gang movie. Good guy, damn.
  7. I think this is the one where the guy who played Boner in the show Growing Pains is the Joker. I just found out that the guy is Star Trek's Chekov's son.
  8. Here's some clean riddles I copied from a Something Awful forum thread: How do you start a flea race? 1, 2, flea, go. What's brown and sticky? A stick, lol. What's an owl's favorite subject? OWL-gebra! What do you get when you cross a river with a bicycle? Wet. What do you call the soft bits between sharks' teeth? Slow swimmers. What's orange and sounds like a parrot A Carrot When ducks fly in a V, why is one side always longer than the other? There's more ducks on that side.
  9. I'm disappointed that the Sirius's Canadian company isn't carrying the show. So, I'm in no hurry to subscribe to Sirius unless I can get my hands on a US subscription. I've heard some mp3s of his radio show from before, but never live.
  10. I'd like to see them do an episode on the Koran. Course, then they'd have to hide out for the rest of their lives what with death threats.
  11. Hey, neat. I've never seen the show because no station in Canada carries it. One guy in the show, Michael Shermer, wrote a good book, Why People Believe Weird Things, which covers alien abductions, psychics, and so on. A good companion book is Carl Sagan's The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark, a great read.
  12. I got a collecting fever lately is all. I acquired something called a rollback set that allows rebuilding MAME roms to fit any MAME version prior to 0.98, so I thought I may as well try to acquire a set of MAME32 versions to complement the collection. Also, on a couple of other forums, there were guys looking for previous versions, for use on older PCs or just for the history of it.
  13. Although the previous MAME versions are available from one source, previous MAME32 versions are not, it seems. I am trying to make a set from 36(f) to 99. (Careful not to misread, that's MAME32 binary setup zips I'm after, not MAME.) So far, I've found some at: http://mame.joymonkey.com/mame32/index.html but many links are broken. Some others are available at: http://emu.makii.pl/wyniki.php3 Search for MAME32 in the provided field. I also have many of the 37 series emailed from a member of a MAME forum. That leaves 0.37b1, 0.37b2, 0.37b3, 0.37b6, 0.37b12, 0.37b15, and 0.54 for me to find. I'm not trying to get any u1, u2, etc. versions. Anybody have these available?
  14. Edit: oh, it be back. That was sort of quick.
  15. They do catch my eye. I wouldn't mind trying them out.
  16. How about the instructions I provided in the FAQ at the top of this board of threads? I'm not sure where the settings are giving a problem for you right now. The pad or joystick movements are what x&y are for. Anyway, here's quoting from the FAQ: For the WinVICE emulator, click Settings on the menu, and see Joystick settings. Click the down arrow in the field below the words "Joystick in port #1" and choose PC Joystick #1 (assuming you want to use the game controller you have listed in Windows Control Panel as controller #1). If you find that you can't do anything in a game, it may be that the game requires Joystick in port #2. You can press the Alt key with the J key to move the PC controller setting to Joystick in port #2 (and you can repeat those key pressings to switch the setting back).
  17. First I was on cable, and it sucked. Now DSL, and that sucks too. I'm just in a area too far from the big cities where stuff is cheap and plentiful.
  18. My nickname could have been spamspamspamandspam.
  19. Anyway, I never watched the Bush speech, as I do my best to avoid such things these days. I have to say that my earliest impressions of him were unfavourably coloured -- seeing him mock the woman executed in Texas by imitating her voice derisively "please don't kill me" really creeped me out, and later when he kept saying "subliminable" again and again as if that was the word just made me stare at the TV wondering about someone that age who seemed to have only heard the word for the first time that day and messed it up. As for Kerry, all I can superficially say about him is that his face is oddly angular. That's petty perhaps, but that's all I've got so far.
  20. Oh my lord, number 6 is just awful! I mean, I at least heard of the other ones. It would be better if that was just some joke that got passed around as truth, but I wouldn't be too surprised that someone tried to do an "oval hunt" for real. In Canada, there is no national education curriculum, as each province is responsible for the details of education. I'm pretty sure it's like that in the US too, which is why we hear about some district somewhere pushing creation science silliness. I don't know how much a national leader can do with specifics, as there are "states' rights" involved. That whole language philosophy has been over-pushed on us for decades, at least back to the 60s from what I have read. Lucky for me it wasn't really pushed in my area in a big way when I first learned to read. One year I even had a nun (this one was not an insane disciplinarian like you may have heard of) for a teacher and I recall lots of learning about short and long vowel sounds and so on. Every elementary year, I had regular spelling tests. Much later, I took some linguistics courses, and I really appreciate the value of knowing about phonemes and how different languages have different sounds and grammars and so on. It would have helped me learn French in high school, rather than the horrible texts with just pictures and French words where I had to guess what was meant.
  21. Is there a way to have the text file only get the long file names and not all that other information that you get with the dir command? How about long file names with file size?
  22. Once in a while. I might visit a few times a week, but I need inspiration for posting.
  23. Here's an uncomfortable interview: http://www.moveon.org/censure/caughtonvideo/
