i am sitting here at my computer, feeling the desire to work on my game, but feeling very bored at the same time. i think i will build up the will over the week! i just haven't compiled the code since the big overhaul, and i am completely scared that it will be a complete mess to fix hahahah

    Congrats - I hope you get the position! Jaguars and Land Rovers - I assume you are in England?

    A friend of mine owned a Jag sedan for a couple of years. It was a beautiful car, even when it was behind a tow truck.

    Best of luck! Ex-Series IIA diesel owner here; the modern ones are just *slightly* different, as I am given to understand ;)

The MOS 6502 is easily my favourite processor, and the Atari 2600 is easily my favourite console to program for.

    hmmm, sounds to me like someone is actually cheating on the 6502 with its younger sister

HSYNC: Offscreen time per raster line before draw continues. VSYNC: Offscreen time before raster returns to top of screen to continue screen draw. NSYNC: Offscreen time before Timberlake and crew re-unite and draw crowds.

You can't even watch a fucking AVI file on your xbox without being logged in. Our ADSL and NBN have been so poor they disconnect when it rains. This means we literally get locked out of our own devices. Fuck modern technology. Seriously. Fuck this.

    I think SYFY Channel is using those computers to do the CGI in their Zombie Shark movies.

    ^ lol It is (not so) funny how CGI in soooo many cases, has taken a dive ever since Jurassic Park. You'd think even on a budget level, that the technology would have caught up by now. It's been 25 years already! W_T_F_?

    yeah, i'm just so surprised how it's like a ratio of 10:1 (working : not working) of how many atari 8-bits etc are still working.

Nintendo DRM: - new console - have to buy entire library again - oh some games will never be rereleased - $20 equates to some prime number of points - always have 200 points left over

    yeah, I think last time I checked my Wii, I had 100 points. So would have to buy more points to use them. Still haven't decide whether to do that or not. Or is it too late now?

    Nintedo had better hope I never have to get a new console if this is how their policy is. If I lose all the digital purchases due to a faulty system, the result is Nintendo loses all future purchases ever.

    I will point out I've never had anything beyond a NES die on me - and that's always because of the pins bending on the connector of the sideloaders.

I love how it's virtually impossible to use the web with non-free java script disabled. The web is terrible now

    I agree. Just imagine how much 'worse' the web would be without javascript, probably not much. I would be less annoying and more stable.

    I am going to investigate using USENET - who needs javascript!!

    But I leave JS off, completely off, all the time on my phone. Most sites work. Youtube, Facebook and Reddit don't, but they're not the entire web! (Gigablast, Entireweb, a few other small search engines need it. Google sometimes asks for a CATPCHA, which needs it. But this board doesn't. Neither does DuckDuckGo.)
