  1. I think emsley is right. The emuscene kinda came to a stop. Even over at ngemu things have slowed a lot. And what is the sense to have 100 emulation related sites, that consist of emulator news and a forum? Every single site out there is built this way. Its f**** boring. So you suggest talking emsley. Well, what to talk about? In the buzz years, all kind of new emulators popped up as the hardware got faster. Nowadays, even actual consoles are emulated, like the Wii. You can download a 8 GB ISO faster now then you could download a 1.2 MB ROMfile back then. There are some guys who are into the emu scene for years, like you and me, but well. Lost most of the interest in it by now. Played it all by now. Got the MameCab in the other room, its collecting dust. And this fate is what most websites suffer too. There are a lot of very popular websites back then, that are now slowly coming to a stop - unless they have the same guys who post there for years now. Yes, you need something kicking and outstanding. Then this site my become more popular again. Until also this new feature gets old. Edit: Holy shit, just found out I will be 10 years member here in January.
  2. Well, some years ago, emulation was way more exciting. These days all the consoles are emulated from pretty decent to almost perfect. We got Saturn and DC and GC emulators in the past few years, and the scene hit a dead end for now. Its all about porting the emus to the phones and other consoles, but it aint anything new to play the same old games on yet another platform. I build myself a MAME cab 2-3 years ago, it was quite fun the first months, but now its just standing there, gathering dust. Maybe we all got tired of this? I think i do. I have been into the emu scene for like, i dunno, about 17 years now. And i think i saw most of it, if not all. I ran my own forum at romuniverse.com years ago and I actually did some piece of software for the emu peeps. But my interest vanished a lot. The only forums still somewhat active these days are the case modder forums, the other ones mostly became a place where the same people meet and talk. Do we become extinct? I just took a look at the ngemu forums, which where like a wasps nest before. There is still quite a lot of activity, but it surely slowed down a lot. Are there still any active sites out there?
  3. It still lacks something to stand out from the crowd. You can't count the emu sites posting news and provide a forum. Still, some years ago this thread would be on page 3 by now.
  4. I correct myself, looks like this site is pretty much dead? What happened?
  5. Oh well, personal stuff kept me busy. No idea why I remembered this website yesterday Looks like the site lost a lot of its activity uh? Is Gamecop still around? Regarding the collapse of the monetary system... We are in the middle of it since 2008. I was right It just takes much longer than expected
  6. Hi Guys, I havent visited "quite" a while. Glad you people are still alive and kickin'
  7. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...&refer=home Another must read Summer 2009: The US government defaults on its debt
  8. I was to post in my blog about this, then i discovered this thread, so i post this here. The end of the world as we know it, almost took place on Wednesday. The global credit system came close to total seizure yesterday as yields on US Treasury bills reach zero for the first time since the Great Depression If you check my last blog entry, which is from Aug 21, it will tell you the last days of Fannie and Freddie may be due and that you should keep a close eye on Lehman brothers, Wachovia and WaMu. By now, Fannie and Freddie and Lehman have gone bust, WaMu begs Citigroup to get bought. Lehman has gone bankrupt, the largest bankruptcy in history, outnumbering Worldcom or Enron by factors. So maybe i get attention now? For your sake. Im no attention whore, i try to warn you guys here for quite some time, but either you believe im a dumb sucker or you dont give a damn. I don't care, cause i see the chance that at least one person may read this and see whats coming up. Now here is some news you probably didnt hear about in mainstream press: If the AIG bailout had not happened, the financial system would have stopped immediately. AIG has 5 TRILLION of book value, Lehman only had 612 billion. In Russia, the first bank collapsed. Short selling stocks is no longer allowed in the UK, US and Russia. The president of the United States was on TV twice in 2 days about this issue. Get an idea on how serious this is? Todays action by Paulson might be too late allready. The Paulson plan does not address the root of the problem. I dont want to go into too much detail here. However consider yourself in the USSA by now. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd says the United States may be "days away from a complete meltdown of our financial system" and Congress is working quickly to prevent that. Now it all is about wether these "days" are enough to prevent the meltdown of the global financial system. The last bailout of this type was in the savings and loan crisis in the late 80s. It took them months to get that law done. Now you compare days till the meltdown to months till the law has passed. Im glad some of you finally seem to notice what may be upon all of us soon. Now take the necessary steps. Stockpile some food and cash. There is a slight chance you will not need it. But there is a bigger chance you will need this.

I guess i stop moaning now, cause if you dont see it by now, you wont notice reality even if it jumped at you and squirted grapefruit juice in your eyes
  9. There ya go.http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSN0527106320080907Now things will turn ugly.
  10. Should i? Shouldn't i? Ah, its MY blog. It looks like the last days,weeks or maybe months of F&F have arrived. This just for the logs. Keep an eye on Lehmann, Wachovia, WaMu.

  13. Yeah well, a lot of things changed the last year. New job. Then: New home. Thats what took me so long. Im currently not online on MSN/ICQ/Whatever any more. Most of my older contacts vanished, so i didnt install any messenger the last time i reinstalled my comp. If you like me to, i still can install one tho. I remember good ol' Emsley.
  14. ok, i will post here. In fact i found a minor bug after releasing this (as usual, you know...) and i will fix it by the weekend i think. By the way, i checked my reg date and im astonished it has been 5.5 years since i registered here. Congrats GC. Your site still rules. EDIT: by the way: Update your database, HOXS64 site has moved.
