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!
When it comes to the blizzards and the snowstorms, we will continue on just as planned. When the rain's coming, when the snow melts, we shall continue to rise above it! Nature will chase us, we will beat her. And brigands, thieves, cutthroats of all nations may hound us, BUT.... we are ready for them! We will blast them to kingdom come! We can melt, we can blast, we can rise above, we are INVINCIBLE!! AHA-HA-HA-Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hahhhhh!!!
So I have a question, have you played the DKC port on the GBC? I know you're fond of the DKL trilogy on the original Gameboy and since it uses the same engine as those games (At least, I think it did.) and even a good majority of DKL1's soundtrack, i'm very curious if you've played it and if you have, what are your thoughts on it?
After much deliberation, I have once again decided to try my hand at building an ultimate classic Wario fighter for MUGEN. Now, I know the whole MUGEN fad is ancient history and the community is not what it once was, but it's still a brilliant game/fighting engine with endless potential. My hunger for a traditional Wario fighter must be quenched! It will be a long and complex undertaking, but a rewarding one for all the old fans. I have a slew of nifty ideas (just wait and see!), however, I must stress that this is not how I make my living, so it won't be priority number one. When I have something meaty to show, I'll let you all know. Wish me the very best of luck! ('cause I'll probably need it...)
Every time I return here there's fewer reasons to stay. The recent wave of immature Orbulon/Sabrina fanatics really makes me realise I am far too old for this childish internet nonsense (honestly, what IS this whole fad with Orbulon and Sabrina?) I'm totally out of place, and I felt the same way back when the Ashley fanatics flooded the place with their song and praise. I only stuck around for the better members, but most of them have long since gone (MonaWare, Pigmask Colonel, King Hehehe), and now BlueJack. While others like Glowsquid, Magma, and JaWF remain, I just can't find any substantial reasons to stick around. I know most internet goers are totally content burning up precious days/weeks/months with mindless memes and distractions, but when you reach 30, the years of life seem a little more valuable than that.
