  • If I were cast down to hell and had to choose my dinner from a set menu, the main course would be a large vat full of... urghhh..... kimchi. (And of course, the reason I'm in hell to begin with is for murdering my little brother who eats the stuff daily and turns the fridge into a leaky gas chamber).

    Im guessing that because its hell, ita foods that you hate? If so, mine would be beets. Cant even stand the smell of them. Is an awful food.

    Have never had kimchi before, not even sure Ive ever seen it tbh : p

    Kimchi is a popular Korean food made of salted fermented vegetables like cabbage and radish, swimming in seasoning. Basically, it's rotting zombified vegetables in ooze.
    It's so vile and potent it stinks out your house, attaches itself to you, and pollutes anything in your fridge that isn't sealed in titanium (especially dairy like milk, butter, yoghurt, etc.) I absolutely DESPISE it! Stay well away, Mona.
    Three cheers to the masked stranger who fixed my little post problem on my Wario Website thread. You know who you are (but I don't).

    G'day there, MW! You betcha, the issue was eventually solved. I posted about it when I returned last Saturday.

    I'm not setting up shop like the old days but I wanted to say hello and contribute a thread or two.
    I invested sooo much time here writing up history essays, research, music appreciation... it seems so futile now that it's all gone. Besides, I don't think there's any interest or a substantial audience around to bother. There's a lot of names I'm not familiar with, and it doesn't look like it would be their bag of chips.

    There seems to be a huge burnout in enthusiasm around here, which is understandable. I've only seen a handful of old natives pop up from the bushes and vanish again. Ah well.... I'm busy with an online course anyway, so I won't invest precious time if there's no action. I hope you're doing well, my Simpsonian bass-shredding saint/friend!

    Oh neat, I was actually worried that someone had hacked your profile again. Am glad youre doing well, though!

    I didnt see your post about coming back, I havent been spending much time here lately either. And yeah, most of the people that made this forum what it was are gone.

    I hope your courses are going well, and Im glad that you might be stopping in here again sometimes. Ill be sure to keep an eye open for you, haha.

    Honestly thought the emu's got you angler it's good to see you returned from planet Australia in the least known kuiper belt.
    WarioForums! Hey-hey! G'day! And a gassy truckload of how-ya-doin's to my old gang of world wide websters!
    Mona, Magma, Glowsquid, Robin, Shyster, Ninja Feline, CM30, T3WB, TB100, Monxi, CMV, JAWF, Metal, Daria, ChickenDinner, and dear old Colonel...... Carloft?

    Let me just say, I'm deeply flattered to read you haven't forgotten about me after... what's it been... half a year or more? You're a tremendous bunch. I see a few names have changed, but the same warm, friendly, grotty faces lie behind them (@Boris Carloft's Car Loft , I've been looking for a new transmission, so it's a handy coincidence you became an auto dealer).

    Anyhow, I just had to stop by for a bit after finally getting steady internet and a knee-smacking, shiny new computer (which is strictly for work-not frivolity). So I'm feeling pretty tickety-boo and I hope you're not too shabby either, trendsetters!

    By the way, cheers for the birthday wishes, but c'mere and I'll let you in on a secret... that birthdate is actually a red herring. Shhhhh...
    Happy fishing/playing/treasure hunting to you all!

    Terrific interview. I've always had a humongous amount of respect for the original core team at Rare, so it's great to have some insight into their production process. Hats off to Mr. Machacek... What a resume he must have.

    Wonder if Rare will ever release that cancelled Battletoads game?

    Can't thank you enough for this link, Glo. I owe Mr. Machacek the moon and stars for the countless hours of joy I had with Rare's Game Boy library growing up, especially the DKL trilogy. What a boyhood inspiration he was (along with the works of R&D1), through the power of imagination and those humble portables. Tremendous stuff.
    G'day, WarioForums. I'm taking a bit of a risk logging on here, but I don't think CM30 received the email I requested to forward here, so I have no choice. I certainly don't want to leave the joint with a dark cloud hanging over my head. This is a lengthy post, but it is my last one, so bear with me if you have the patience...

    As I mentioned during the last 'upset', the computer I use for online tasks (including WarioForums) is a shared computer within a rural community. Due to my online activities being tampered/vandalised on a recurring basis, I had to lodge a caution notice. I was not surprised to learn I'm not the only one here who has been having security issues with sites like Youtube, eBay, Yahoo, etc.

    Our internet out here is extremely touch-and-go. On a regular day it can take anywhere between ten seconds and ten minutes just to load one measly tab, and that's if it loads at all. I constantly find myself bashing the keyboard, trying to refresh a page or log out of a site in sheer frustration, only to get that little loading symbol spin infinitely with nothing happening. Internet users of the world have no idea just how bad it can get in certain parts of Australia.

    Just typing this message is an ordeal because the service can't keep up with my inputs (I'm not even a fast typist!) It's absolutely woeful, but that's the gravity of the situation. It's a shared service, and a lot of people use it, so once my time is up, I can't sit around and see if I'm properly signed out of everything. It is NOT the sort of service one should ever use for private messaging, online banking, transactions, etc. Unfortunately, ever since I left uni it's all I've had to rely on. I'm just a poor artist who lives in the sticks, trying to get by.

    Now, Magma was right when he said I didn't feel like I belong here. I stand out like a sore thumb. I'm a very busy man and I'm really not suited to internet communities (especially video game ones). I'm just some guy from the bush who grew up loving games in the 90's and early 2000's. I thought that joining a forum would be an interesting thing to try, after BlueJackG invited me via Youtube.
    During my time here I tried to contribute to the place. I spent a great deal of time writing posts on art appreciation and everything I've learned on the history of the video game medium. I've also had some ripper conversations with members like MonaWare, Glowsquid, Magma, Pigmask Colonel, TB100, Ninja_Cat, J.A.W.F., and several others.

    The last fortnight has been extremely rough on me. I recently lost a tonne of important files and family memories (thousands, in fact) after my main drive broke down during a back up session. It's a long story I needn't go into.
    The fact I don't have a secure internet resource has been the constant, nagging cherry on the cake. I have become totally disheartened with computers in general. It's just been one huge set back after another, and as a result I've been a little dramatic and depressed over the last week. My mind is totally shot. Even still, it's my problem and I have to face it like a man.

    At any rate, I hope you're all having a great June, getting ecstatic about the year ahead! We don't know what the Smash Bros. fellas are cooking up for the Wario fans.
    I also reckon we've got a sure thing in some King K. Rool content! I mean, it's only a matter of time, surely!
    In addition, while I've never been keen on Waluigi, I think his supporters will get the last word if they stick to their guns. So best of luck on that one, @Just a Wario Fan (Love your Mad Scienstein profile, by the way.)

    Before I go, I'd like to thank all the members who made my time here a happy one, espeically @CM30 for resurrecting the lost threads I started, BlueJack ( @Robin ) for inviting me, Pigmask Colonel for his knowledge and gift of the gab, (and for making the only clean, complete VB Wario Land rip currently online). @MonaWare and @Triple M , you were always terrific contributors to forum conversation, and to my music-based "Tunes" threads. I really miss those. And I can't forget Glowsquid, whom I've always respected as a bubbling fountain of obscure knowledge (something we seem to have in common).

    The place has changed a bit since I was at my most active here. Now that everything is gone once again it seems totally futile trying to pick up where I left off. This whole debacle has been exhausting, and I can't keep coming in here deleting any vulgar edits or checking to see if my posts are still in tact. I have a lot of work on my plate, and these internet sessions are totally unpredictable. Sometimes I get it for an hour or more, sometimes only 10-15 minutes.

    All I can say is make sure you are always logged out properly from any sites or services you use. And if you *can't* be sure, DON'T, DON'T, DON'T use the service for anything other than casual research or browsing. Please!
    Anyhow, I have a shit-load of work ahead of me with a deadline to meet, and a family to support. So I will bid you adieu, WarioForums. Thank you for your patience (if you read this far) and for all the good times you've given.
    I won't be logging back on after this message, as I don't want to risk another foul up. I seriously don't have the time or mental energy for anymore embarrassing upsets.
    One again, my apologies for all the confusion and commotion over the last month. Enjoy your crepes and garlic, Wario fans.

    Lotsa love,

    Angler
    Either way, if you want personal info removed, that's one thing, but wrecking conversations is another.
    I'd like to pretend that you secretly fought your evil twin much like Carl Johnson, warioware turned you evil...

    rip your witty replies I shall get the tombstone ready.

    Carl Johnson is a twist and a mystery, all wrapped up in an enigma crust. I'm hoping he releases his autobiography one day, with a film adaptation starring Samuel L. Jackson.
    I feel a bit like a janitor at the moment, mopping up somebody else's vomit off the floor of my inbox (the difference is, I'm not getting paid to do it).

    That reminds me of my retail days. I think most people assume that the womens room is cleaner than the mens room. From my experience, this is not the case Dx

    Holy cow! You think you have the opposite sex all figured out, then somebody on the inside throws a curve ball your way. What a revelation...
    Hey, Im glad youre okay : p Thanks for letting us know
    G’day, folks! This is the angler (of Lake Asparagus), back from a long expedition up the Mitta Mitta River, through the wilds of the Murray Darling Basin. And I have to say, what an utterly miserable homecoming this has been. It wasn’t bad enough my eBay and Yahoo mail accounts were locking me out, but now all my contributions to the forums have been vandalised, or gone up in smoke, along with those who contributed to my threads!

    It’s been a struggle just getting back in here. As I already told CM30 in an email, I lost my original Youtube channel some time ago, with years of posts, ratings, and subscriptions down the gurgler (I started that account in late 2006!)

    This sort of thing has happened before, and I still don’t know whether it’s an outside culprit, or closer to home. I often use a shared computer within a small community, since my ancient laptop is fair game for viruses. I can’t exactly go around door knocking, asking folks if they’re my friendly neighbourhood hacker.
    Australia’s NBN is an absolute joke. Our woeful internet service is so slow, it’s the laughing stock of the west. I’m sure it’s been instrumental in this problem, as you can’t always be certain you’re properly signed out of any given account.

    Anyway, I’m at a loss here. CM30 has taken measures to make sure it won’t happen again, on the forums, at least.
    Thanks for your concern, everyone (and thanks for your scrutiny, Detective Magma). I know I’m not very active, but I don’t regret knowing you wonderful people. I’ve had some ripper conversations with many of you over the last couple of years.
    My sincere apologies for all the hoopla, folks, and thank your mother for the rabbits!

    Lotsa love,

    Angler
    Wait, why did you delete every post you made?

    Oh, dear... No joke. It's all gone. Well, there go my write-ups in "Animation Appreciation", and everyone else's posts, too.
    You don't think it could have been some bizarre server error, do you, CM30? I can't fathom why Angler would suddenly go through every last one of his posts and delete them manually (unless there's some "delete all postings" feature which I'm unaware of). It doesn't add up.

    Yeah, something seems very off here. Like someone accidentally nuked every bit of content the member has for some reason.

    But that wouldn't make sense. There is a spam cleaner feature, but that also bans the member, and Angler ain't banned. No logs indicate any mod or admin changed anything either.

    A server error is definitely possible though.
