    Dreamland.
    The people that made the R4 fw are dead yes. IIRC, they got sued by Nintendo. It's still going with the Wood fw made by Yellow Goblin.

    They are either prosecuted upon and had to stop working on the R4. Or they are just retired of the scene, and now enjoying their hard earned money.

    No. they make the M3 series and the white box R4s that still sell. I would better ask if Bung is dead but no they make e-cigarettes and aren't into gaming any more.

    Drug deal gone wrong. They should have known that when Miyamoto asks you for the money, you give him the money.

    It means "original poster" or, in this case, "original post"

    I'm shocked that Nintendo hasn't convinced Japan to plant a small nuke in a certain port city... ;)
