    First there was KiVan, and his TEMPorary GBA ROM site...
    At this time he used small, basic equipment.

    As time went on, more people joined, and better hardware was needed.
    [​IMG]


    Although the workings of the site were fraught with peril...
    [​IMG]


    The team was always prepared for things going wrong!

    GBATemp moved servers frequently in the original days...
    [​IMG]


    So it was eventually decided to make the project science/information-based so to avoid run-ins with the law.
    [​IMG]


    GBATemp's branding/flag was born and thus people felt safe to unite under it without the site getting shut down.
    [​IMG]


    With more people came more user-created problems...
    [​IMG]


    And hardware failures were not uncommon.
    [​IMG]


    Although we've had to endure loss...
    [​IMG]


    And heartbreak...
    [​IMG]


    GBATemp lives on!

    Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship GBAtemp. Its never ending mission: to yell about video games, to yell about things that aren't video games, to boldly go where plenty of men have gone before.

    Gotta' get the orbit far enough away from the planet that you don't go into the atmosphere at any point, which will slow you down. Most people aim for 100,000 meters or something like that, it seems, so I know that value's safe.

    I've been told by people that i need to stop playing kerbal space program, i went way over the line when making weapons out of stock parts.
    see below picture for example of the second concept of weaponry:
    [​IMG]
    and chucked in the third since i could.
