    I guess it’s my turn to say something
    Without this website and community I never would have pursued electronics and software engineering as a career. I gained a lot of knowledge and it’s upsetting to watch this place burn down. However, Kevin is quite the shady fellow and it’s probably best if the site closes down or changes hands. In the event it closes down (it will), I enjoyed all the posting I have done here and made many fond memories. Thank you for the laughs, and memes. Laters gamers.

    Yeah, I'm not obliged to do that, especially with this forum closing. Please don't start a conversation by making demands of me or by implying I may be lying.

    It's pretty common knowledge at this point and who the person involved was for anyone around in 2007, and the series I am clearly most interested in.

    I gave them the benefit of the doubt 2 years later, and they tried to scam me out of £150 for a burn of said proto on a Saturn Dev CD-R.

    Said person is now a VIP at OG. If I feel the person is doing anything shady, then I will inform Demon of the situation.

    That said, I have not seen much bad since 2009 when they tried to scam me and deleted my first account when I registeted to post about it back then, so I have not publicly named them... someone on this forum DID confront them about them trying to scam me, and they made the lamest excuses for it, and tried to make it my fault.

    But yeah, good riddance to this place imo~

    I was just a ghost here but did read multiple times here many things.

    I have PSX for parts if someone needed anything.

    Nevertheless am I dressed for the occasion
    It's number 32 now here's the situation
    If the beat moves your feet then don't change the station
    Now pack your bags cause we're leaving on a permanent vacation

    Well, I'm a disaster
    A microphone master
    Put on your tape and rock your ghetto blaster
    It's not about the money, cars, hotels, or resorts
    S'About sweating all the bitches in the biker shorts

    Storming through the party like my name was El Niño,
    When I'm hanging out drinking in the back of an El Camino.
    As a kid, was a skid, and no one knew me by name.
    Trashed my own house party, 'cause nobody came.

    I know I'm not the one you thought you knew back in high school.
    Never going, never showing up when we had to.
    Attention that we crave, don't tell us to behave.
    I'm sick of always hearing "act your age".

    I don't want to waste my time,
    Become another casualty of society.
    I'll never fall in line,
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down.

    Because you don't
    Know us at all, we laugh when old people fall,
    But what would you expect with a conscience so small?
    Heavy metal and mullets, it's how we were raised.
    Maiden and Priest were the gods that we praised.

    'Cause we like having fun at other people's expense and
    Cutting people down is just a minor offence then.
    It's none of your concern, I guess I'll never learn,
    I'm sick of being told to wait my turn.

    I don't want to waste my time,
    Become another casualty of society.
    I'll never fall in line,
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down.

    Don't count on me
    To let you know when.
    Don't count on me,
    I'll do it again.
    Don't count on me.
    It's the point you're missing.
    Don't count on me,
    'Cause I'm not listening.

    Well I'm a
    No good nick lower middle class brat, backpacked,
    And I don't give a shit about nothing.
    You be standing on the corner talking all that kufuffin.
    Well you don't make sense from all the gas you be huffing.
    'Cause if the egg don't stain, you'll be ringing off the hook,
    You're on the hit list, wanted in the telephone book.
    I like songs with distortion, to drink in proportion.
    The dentist said my mom should've had an abortion.

    I don't want to waste my time,
    Become another casualty of society.
    I'll never fall in line,
    Become another victim of your conformity and back down.

    (Waste my time with them) casualty of society.
    (Waste my time with them) victim of your conformity and back down.

    The seas have parted,
    The endings started,
    The sky has turned to black!
    A killing spree
    Through eternity,
    The devil stabs you in the back!

    It's midnight now
    You must escape somehow,
    Torture is his leisure!
    Don't try to hide
    He'll make you subside,
    As he exchanges pain for pleasure!

    Pain for pleasure,
    He's the hunter,
    you're the game!
    Pain for pleasure,
    Satan is his name!

    Look out!

    Who was the user that had an avatar of the guy holding up a sign that said "rave it up you fucking cunts"?

    I've always wanted to know where that image was from.

    It was a pleasure to spend some time here and share knowledge about electronics and prototypes. I haven't been around much in the past few years, however I remember back in 2011-2013 how active the forum was and it was truly a blast to read about forgotten games on a regular basis.

    I read this thread and I while I agree that there are/were some shady people on this forum, I think those fortunately remain a minority. This thread should not be a motive to wash your dirty laundry in public. There are plenty of members who are extremely knowledgeable in hardware/software/electronics and played a significant role in making available unreleased stuff to everyone using their money and their time.

    Good luck everyone...

    I just seen the notice about this and haven't read all the thread yet, but has there been any progress on saving the site? Is there an archive project yet?

    They have at least one after May. I think their goal is to be as close as possible to the last day.

    You can also check off-topic for a thread with info on backing up your PMs under Windows and Linux.
