I am allowed to tell you this! The human Amri Wandel knows too much! Our saucer battalions are inbound to teach this puny earthing and his big mouth a lesson that he will never forget! We will give him a strange slightly hallucinogenic UFO experience that he can't explain, undermining his credibility as a scientist! You have been warned! I can say no more ...

Remember, psycho-sexually isolative schizophrenics should not be listened to at all or given equipment. Call the police! Sexual slavery by any name or disguise is wholly evil and has no place in any country in the world. Women OWN themselves and they OWN their genitalia and can do WHAT they like, WHEN they like and under any given circumstances whatsoever! That's my best advice, this is how morality REALLY works in sexual people.

Journal: Software emulation developer tip! 1

Journal by Grindalf

The world needs more good emulators, such as XMESS and MAME. But where do you get the ROMs from? Check out the internet archive with a good broadband connection!
Try the following links: https://archive.org/details/MAME_0.151_ROMs and https://archive.org/details/MESS_0.151_Software_List_ROMs for some ROMs.
There are probably more, if you look at the "software" section and if you also try the "search" ...

Can we not just have a large tower PC based OS, that works and installs offline via DISKS and that has swappable / maintainable cards and devices. A machine that's another order of power in comparison with the previous year in terms of processor, 3D etc. I'm sick of the sight of "cheaped off" slow thin breakable devices that are nearly impossible to use for professional work, and even harder to open and maintain. Keep the smudge screen toys separate, we're not fooled any more, they're rubbish! How about a second operating system for tablet devices called “Windows Bomb Boy Chintz.” That way the kids would know that there's a better life out there, filled with jobs, large screen entertainment and games that work.

This is a normal cyclical occurrence in companies such as Microsoft, they'll have skimmed off the kids who can actually write C++ compiled binary and assembler software well, and thrown the rest out. I know from years of experience, you'll think you are in a room full of programmers but in reality there will approximately two brainy kids amongst 200. This is the nature of human intelligence, it's a rare commodity and MOST people are “wannabes.”

That's amusing, it's exactly the opposite of the 1980s British Sinclair ZX Spectrum Z80A machine code games development paradigm that I was studying last year, which was based on high speed software that was assembler / hand coded machine code. The programmers would rob each other blind all the time of useful routines and ideas. This was because writing these games is so difficult a task to do on such a simple processing device from scratch, only to have to subsequently go on to write the new features and game items that add value and product differentiation. A completely different culture produces different results! A very interesting topic.
