heh, I know that guy, he's on the Sega-16 forum trolling there too, putting down other members (including me btw)..
He's bashing me, cause I made a Sega Genesis run Mac OS, and wouldn't let me explain HOW I did it.. no matter what I explained, it wasn't good enough for him.. even after I finally showed a picture of the unit actually running, it was only "slightly" better for him... (geez, I always thought a picture was worth a million)...
Lawrence, be warned about him..
You made claims that are(still are) impossible, ED.
I still don't buy it.
Well, at least 60% of it is most likely you misunderstanding waht your fellow programmers did and thinking it's doing things it cannot(like run full color depth at a resolution as high as you claim).
"it just does" is NEVER a good enough explaination. I didn't accept it from creationists in my (former)church, and I don't need to in regard to computer sciences. (can you TELL I no longer care about being here?? it's like being around CHRISTIANS or something...)
I don't see why you people seem to think I really want to be part of this...'place.'
When I first came here I thought it was here to be helpful and share information.
Now I see it's one man's ego trip.
"IN MY HOUSE YOU PLAY BY MY RULES!! OR I BITE YOUR FUCKING HEAD OFF!!!"
I tried to tell L that he was behaving in a manner unsuitable for social discourse(read: being a dick that would be banned from a forum run by another person) because I'd behaved like that myself in the past, and been banned.
And ED. One other person ever caught flak from me on sega-16, and he's a dicktard, and always shall be. I was a fool to let him drag me off topic and fall for his trolling for a whole thread. hell, I can't even remember what that thread started as, he dragged it so many ways. You should be careful who you associate with, as you communicating with that person in any manner other than to correct their strange leaps of logic and hair splitting casts doubt on your authenticity.
I'm not a troll, I'm crass when someone waves their cock in my direction.
This thread's very existence is proof that this is all this site is:
"I HAVE WAY MORE FREE TIME THAN YOU EVER DID!! I CARE ABOUT THINGS THAT WILL NEVER MATTER!!! WAHAHAHAH!"
Shit, so do I, but I don't go making sites about it. I got over that when I was 17.
The gist of my point:
if you make a website designed to provide info, don't get pissed when people ask for info.
If you don't make people register, don't get upset when people that wouldn't fill out a form to save their life post on your boards.
If someone offers new info, don't bite their head off and say "READ MY WEBSITE!!! IT"S RIGHT!! FUCK YOU!!!" or something to that effect.
Basically, you're a discourteous asshead and a poor host.
There's no excuse for being rude in a rebuke when no harm has come to you.
It's possible to be firm and kind at the same time, hell fuck kind, as a host I expect people to be polite.
Am I being polite? FUCK NO, This is not an environment that cultivates that attitude!
It seems designed to lord bullshit knowledge over others and a kind of "LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!" attitude that while interesting, is not impressive.
(Oh, and the guitarist thing was IRONY. And you have all failed THAT test. if people have no sense of irony, then I have NO time for them.
Didn't you notice 'guitar GEEK'?? I can recite the vacuum tube compliment of around 20 different amplifiers that spans a 50 year period of time. I can give you impedence and magnetics specs of various pickups and speakers for any number of instruments. I can MAKE some of these things. That's as nerdy as it gets, and I'm not alone.
Secret: all guitarists are either losers or geeks.
Losers can't play for shit and drink themselves to death.
Geeks play weird or well, and may or may not drink themselves to death.
Neither one is anything any 'cooler' than anyone here, they're just more likely to get laid by women they will regret ever meeting later in life. It doesn't work on guys, somehow... But I'm no sociologist. Just stating observations.
Playing guitar is like smoking:
it doesn't make you cool, but it makes you look cool to people who don't know better.)
