1. Hi, This is just a quick post to say goodbye, and to thank everyone for the fun I've had through this place. I've been getting gradually less active for nearly a year, and I think it's time to call it quits. I've still got GBAtemp as my homepage and I feel guilty every time I see it, because I...
  2. Hi guys, Me and some friends are travelling down to London at the end of this month for two days on the super-cheap MegaBus. Aside from the usual jam-packed touristy type places, what is there to do on a budget? I've got the Trocadero earmarked already, and a few friends want to visit Camden...
  3. I can't understand why there's such a commotion on Reddit and similar sites about The Penguin Bar 'selling out'. After putting in such a massive investment of 60 million SEK (about $7.8 million or £4.7 million), the company who buys them will not alter the site substantially. If they do,...
  4. <@jph> hi costy, and get your gay paws off me sinky :cry:
  5. So, my iPod was supposed to be delivered today. Nope. What was delivered was a sheet of paper telling me that because I was out, they've ran off with my parcel and hidden it in some damp, dingy warehouse nearly 15 miles away from my house. Now, to me it's quite obvious that during the day the...
  6. NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION AT POST #21 LADIES AND GENTLEMEN MAY I NOW PRESENT SINKHEAD'S HOME MADE AIR-CONDITIONING UNIT. Because I'm too poor to afford a proper one. [img] It's made from some sellotape, an old PC fan, a Jaffa Cakes tray and cardboard. DID I DO WELL, GBATEMP?
  7. The Report System has recently been greatly improved behind-the-scenes for staff. For members it still looks the same, but the new system of dealing with reports means they will be handled much faster and more efficiently than before. So... If you see something that could be considered...
  8. Ok, so on Friday night at about 10:15pm we had just arrived at the kayaking trip with the rest of the club. At 10:45 I was in the car on the way to A&E :( Basically, me and Gaz and the rest of the club were play fighting (for lack of a better word) over glow sticks. Now, I'm one of the oldest...
  9. Please, guys, if you're going to report something, just report it! Don't reply to the thread saying 'lol i rported u rofl dats not alouwed!!!!!11!!' It's really hard to read through the whole thread in case somebody quoted the post or made a reply such as the one above. Thanks a lot :)
  10. Recently on Digg I saw screenshots for the next Ubuntu upgrade... In the past I would have been excited about that, when I was a Microsoft hater, thought they were a big monolithic evil force that had to be stopped. And then I realized that actually, Windows is good. People say it's buggy....
  11. Before I begin, this is just one way of doing this, there are many different providers and many different newsreaders to choose from, I'm using the ones I know how to use and the ones I feel comfortable with. The Usenet provider I use is Usenet-News because of the block accounts they do (buy...
  12. As I'm sure you're aware, Brawl is doing an excellent job of slowing down GBAtemp down, as well as creating all those nasty MySQL errors. And it's difficult to moderate efficiently in these conditions, so I'm asking you to help us to yourself <span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'> If a...
  13. Due to reasons I don't particularly want to share I've been without a computer for five days now, which made me realize just how useful my DS is. I've played pretty much all the DS games I'm interested in, but I've never really got into emulators. So using DSOrganize's browser I managed to...
  14. I've seen lots of these freebie-type websites dotting around but they always required you to refer friends which I didn't like (not because I don't have friends :P) but because my friends just weren't interested. And then I say GamingLagoon from a link in Linkiboy's signature. Unfortunately, at...
  15. [quote name='Wikipedia on Poi (Juggling)']Poi is a form of juggling, or object manipulation with balls on ropes, held in the hands and swung in various circular patterns, comparable to club-twirling. It originated with the M&#257;ori people of New Zealand (the word poi means "ball" in...
