  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 e
  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, abo
  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.
  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.
  11. Sidtool (a C64 SID Emulator frontend) steps to Version 1.3: * Updated WinVice to V 2.0 * Added subsong support to WinVice! * Added options to disable auto play function when clicking any entry (User requested feature for easier playlist building) * Added thread priority selector (Feature request) http://sidtool.demodungeon.com/
  12. Another bugfix release of Sidtool has been released: Get it here
  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. (Check link in postin #1)
  15. Nah its ok. I will post on aep for the next version and see the news spread the web like a miracle
  16. Boy! I was about to submit this here. You are pretty fast eh?

    Well...

    Yeah that is indeed a problem, forecasting is difficult. They come up with all sorts of (illegal) tricks.(BTW its not me that forecasted this, i just did the copy n paste trick BTW i deleted the old postings for the lack of interest. Looks like RL draw some attention to this prob now.)Anyway, things started in autumn, so thats just a few months off what people forecasted. But if you dont see by now, whats coming up, you msut have 2 eyes missing. At least. Today Bernanke told us, that the Bear Stearn incidence would have been "it".The guys at leap see "it" happening in the 2nd half this year.h

    Lipsky speechIMF Urges Action to Strengthen Global Financial SystemBy IMF Survey onlineMarch 12, 2008 * Risks of further escalation of crisis rising * Decisive action needed to put global financial system on firmer footing * First priority to reverse spreading strains in global financial markets The IMF called for "decisive policy action" to strengthen the global financial system, buffeted by fallout from the subprime crisis, noting that authorities worldwide must also "think the unthinkable" so that they can better anticipate and react to potential global economic risks."By now, ther

    Well...

    - Bens plan to save the primary dealers with a $200 billion injenction failed, to say the least.- Hedge Fonds, like CCC and the others and their brethren will now collapse.- That is why Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae "papers" will collapse, an estimated value of $4500 billion.Lets see what Paulson comes up with. I bet he has a plan.

    Well...

    Well, you gotta start reading about it. Then you will learn.Crappy statement this is, i know. But its that way with all things.The main thing you need to know is summed up quickly:Subprime debt has been cut up into strange papers and sold all over the world. These strange papers then got cut up again into even more strange papers and sold over the world. Repeat this process. Mix in other strange papers. Then you have that alphabetical soup you read about everywhere. ABS, ABC, CDO, LBO, SIV, VIE and alike. Doesnt matter really. The problem is threefold:1) The ammount of these derivatives is abo
  21. Ill second IJTF Cinder, hes right on all what he said, but id like to stress out 1 point: CPU and RAM. At the current time, techs are about to change. I considered getting a dualcore Athlon64 about 6 months ago, but now i decided to wait. Reason is AMD releasing QUADCORE cpus lately. Problem is these would require a new Mainboard, new RAM and a new CPU for me as of today. So i'd recommend, unless you really need the power NOW, get good or great components now, forget about mainboard, cpu and ram and update these when time is due.

    Well...

    Oh well, i had been posting quite a lot of news regarding the utter collapse of the worlds financial system throughout 2006 here in my blog, but noone seemed to read it. About the real estate bubble and such. Maybe GameCop remembers? Then i thought it would be possible. But today... It happens at this very moment. Anyway, things are accelerating quickly. Bernanke announced upcoming bank failures today.The dollar is going to hell. Faennie Mae and Freddie Mac announced huge losses. Here in germany we have 3-5 banks on the verge of collapse actually. Australia, England banks have huge losses. Rea
