Comment More life (Score 1) 95

Seeing that image which is a TINY fraction (perhaps too small to even be considered a fraction) of the universe makes me wonder how some people think there can't be any other life in the universe... We just can't communicate with it because of distance/delay concerns.

I think that now there is so little (excluding read-only optical media) of the "true" ROM (stuff that can never be rewritten). Now, just about all "ROM" (technically, EEPROM) can be flashed (rewritten) for the purpose of updating (or others...). So now the term "ROM" is synonymous with firmware. So, custom ROM=custom firmware. Or in the case of emulators, ROM is the image required for the emulator to ... emulate.

No... it seems just about all mirrors (that I checked) are either timing out or give 403 Forbidden messages. I was able to start a download from a direct link (but it got flaky and stopped), and now I can't even start (or find a working torrent).

We're actually working on one at [I'll omit company name]. The only problem is that the browser the users will be using will be IE6 (not by our choice)... It's a pain in the ass coding for that thing! Naturally, our app still runs well on all browsers, but IE6 was just a pain to code for!! :(
