    I wasn't always this way lol. In my teens and 20's I would pirate stuff just because I could, even if I could afford it. It wasn't until after I was in a life changing car accident that forced me to change occupation that I decided to straighten up. I used to be a union sheet metal worker back then but the accident took my ability to walk away from me. So I knuckled down, went to college to become a network security auditor. Not happy with the prospects after I finished college, I decided to start my own company. And to be Frank instead of Bob, I had a few companies stiff me on a bill they owed me for services performed. That's when it hit me like that semi-truck that crashed into me... This must be how developers feel when people pirate their software!

    I just couldn't do it anymore, so I stopped.

    Edit: sorry for the life story. I just felt it was relevant to what made me quit pirating things.

    My affliction with my form of kleptomania goes way back to the Bung Enterprises, Lik Sang days so I doubt I’ll be cured anytime soon but much respect for the candid post

    How good was liksang! Brings back memories!

    This will be useful when something better than SXOS eventuates. But for now I'm happy booting into SXOS and launching hekate from there

    when ninty is banning everyone? How is that hard to believe? Count me in this group. I will not touch .xci or whatever else files come around. But if I get banned from using homebrew/linux, then ninty is simply forcing my hand. Ban==pirate since those idiots left no other choice (other than maybe buying physical copies of games that don't require online to play)

    Wow, haven't heard of those companies in a long time :P I got a Z64 collecting dust in storage but I was the happiest kid on the block when that sucker arrived.

    Good memories. Yeah I've still got my old V64 Jr and Mr Flash unit up in the loft.
    V64 Jr made you feel like a boss back then.

    It’s amazing how many people think that just because they don’t have a use for something right now, that nobody will ever have a use for something in the future.
