Default Shows over folks...Go home to your families...

Yeah, I have to say, the Rom Hacking community had pretty nice prospects for me. I didn't know I was hated so much.

If I may say so, Zophars time may be up, but you could still kick in some competition. Swampgas, you just have to put someone else in control...That's all you ever had to do to rejuvenate the site. I don't know why you let it decay, but nothing can be done about that. If it's worth it to you, try letting someone else hold the reigns for a bit.

I don't understand the 2 faced attitude that goes on in the community, as well as most of the internet. It's like you grew up but forgot to mature.

ZIEG HEIL! We do as we wish and have no remorse because we didn't like you in the first place!

You know why I came here? I came here to learn about Rom Hacking because I loved emulation so much, I wanted to get deeper into it's roots, the core of it all. I wanted to do something crazy and have my work respected.

But I'm not gonna give too much of a bleeding heart speech. So thats where that ends.

Thanks Thaddeus and Gil for the heads up. I would have never known that people hated me so much if you hadn't spoken up.

Half of you guys are so fucking talented it's unbelievable, yet you choose not to do anything nuts or inconceivable like a select few do.

But those times are in the past I suppose. Let it die or let it rot. Either way, it's all piracy.

I really don't know what to say anymore...Those I gave a helping hand to know who they are, and I respect their silence if they want it.

There is no "competition." There is an archive of emulators on the site. That's what ZD is. There have been 4 other people who tried to run ZD...I haven't run ZD in YEARS.

Goodbye, jerk.

I've GOT to ask, is that going to be part of the site redesign if that ever happens? Will the download pages link to archived copies of emulators... and will ZD itself have a subtitle like "Emulation's Archive"?

When did the "archive" status hit?

It's always my fault. That's what you missed.

It's 2006, too. The stuff people whine about happened TEN YEARS AGO. They are now officially psychotic <img src=smilies/laff.gif>

But it's nice to see you still around. I always liked you. In a friendly way.

I didn't know he ran this site. I thought he was always on Elazul's Pad or some such.

Was he before or after Paladyn? :P

Before. I think that was January - March 2002. Then he left for his own site.
