It doesn't matter what happened to the mame machine, as it went back into storage. What matters to me, is the fact that a disabled forum member, made a test to determine the states of latency on some commercial encoders. I found it informative and hoped to learn more on the subject.
What the original poster got back was truly shocking to the point that Saint had to interject. It seems that this hobby is dying very slowly and now the rot is setting in. The rot I refer to is the people on this board, who feel compelled to post a nasty remark, then get all defensive when the are taken to book about it.
I do have an opinion that is not shared by most of you, and it is basic ethics. I know the difference between black and white, where most of you exist in the gray. I was once like you, downloading all those abandonware, until I got first hand experience of a software development firm, going bust due to piracy, and it changed my view on the industry. Now I have that stance, which those who play in the gray, throw stones at. I love how you children vent, and I do admit I find it hillarious at times. But when you start taunting and abusing a disabled person on this board, becomes a whole different ballgame. I find such behavior disgusting and not merited anywhere on the internet.
If you want to vent at someone, direct it at me. Post the childish quotes, and the general idiotic hate at me. Just don't target the innocent. How about you just thinking it and not posting such poison. I'll keep on trying to rebuild my stargate (time permitting) and post my infinite wisdom, for all to benefit from. Deal?
