Ron Paul is Veep!

There are leaked classified communication between Mitt Romney and Libertarian Ron Paul.

healthcare mandiate, no more.

Hurray! The supreme court throws out the mandate for unconstitutionality. The White house says that every American has to buy healthcare, yet not every American needs Obamacare. Paul Ryan says it will destroy Medicare Advantage, and most parts of Medicare.

Real amazing Rail guns/lazer!



Okay people, we got the MTHEL (mobile tactical high energy lazer) the size of a semi trailer, HELLADS (high energy liquid laser active defense system) and now bases equiped with telescope for locking on enemy satellites into space and making them explode!

Conservatively is supposed to destroy any CPU on the enemy satellite.

Ian's Youtube blog (2012 - present)

Iain's Youtube blog (2012 - present)
I've been reviewing my stats. I created clones at wordpress (1300 views), exf3 (800 views), and blogspot (5,000 views). Why delete and start over? The fun doesn't improve.

I feel my blog is obsolete without Youtube. There is a Facebook and blogger icon on youtube.com! I had these thoughts after Wii U was unrevealed in mid-2011.

Healthcare update

The court should rule that this individual mandate is unconstitutional. To do otherwise would give Congress almost unlimited power.

The court's mystique and reputation for silence means there have been no special warnings from the justices for employees not to spill the beans on the health care decision. It's not that the health care decision isn't important. It's that clerks, secretaries, aides, janitors, and all of the other staff know they are not supposed to talk about anything the court does until the official announcement.

The government's tax-clause argument is similarly flawed. It asserts that the individual mandate isn't really a restriction on freedom, it's just a tax; violators are forced to pay a fine. If this logic is correct, it would justify any mandate enforced by a monetary fine, whether it be for broccoli, a car or anything else. Every lower court to have considered this constitutional issue has ruled that the mandate is not a tax but a penalty. As President Barack Obama acknowledged in 2009, "for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase."

he commerce clause gives Congress authority to regulate interstate commerce. Since the 1930s, Supreme Court decisions have interpreted the commerce clause broadly. But every previous case expanding the commerce power involved some sort of "economic activity," such as operating a business or consuming a product. Failure to purchase health insurance is neither commerce nor an interstate activity. Indeed, it is the absence of commerce.

If the "necessary and proper" clause allows Congress to adopt the individual mandate, the same logic would justify almost any other mandate. Virtually every mandate has some economic effect and could be portrayed as a "useful or convenient" way to regulate some market. A broccoli mandate could be defended as an effort to regulate the market in food.
The threat to liberty raised by this case isn't just theoretical. Many industries would be happy to lobby for laws requiring people to buy their products, and Congress has a long history of enacting special-interest legislation.


1994 Hondas are the way to go


I like this bike's price of $1700! It's a 1994 Honda CBR600 RR with under 1000 miles, crashed twice, but had body work. I'd be happy with this bike with my paycheck. Lots of bang for the buck. I don't have to go with a 250 CC for under $3000.

PC-BSD 9 didn't have WiFi

By now, I logged in more hours in Linux Mint 11 than Ubuntu 10.10! I was going to install PC-BSD 9.0, yet I couldn't find a Broadcom WiFi PBI file for it. Linux Mint 11 was much more stable running Opera 11.62 than Firefox 10.0.2. (have both). I own Linux Mint 12, yet installation wasn't stable.


Update:

Update:


add to /boot/loader.conf

if_bwn_load="YES"

According to the man page, we need the firmware port for this

/usr/ports/net/bwn-firmware-kmod # make install clean

We also need to enable this firmware port in /boot/loader.conf,

bwn_v4_ucode_load="YES"

Finally, add the following to /etc/rc.conf

network_interfaces="AUTO"
wpa_supplicant_enable="YES"
wlans_bwn0="wlan0"
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP"

Will this work???

Daytona USA 2: Super Model emulator

I downloaded the Sega Model 3 emulator known as Supermodel_0.2a_Win64 and played a game of Daytona USA 2! I had to re-download the Daytona USA and Daytona USA 2 zips. These Roms already stored on DVDR somewhere in the case anyways. I'm too lazy to fetch the DVDR. I know I had SSF working in 2005, and this is 7 years later. I owned Daytona USA for Saturn since 2000, and for Dreamcast since 2001. Daytona USA surpassed Crazy Taxi 1/2 and Metropolis Street Racer as my favorite Dreamcast racing game. I played Daytona USA multiplayer with a relative.

I'm running Daytona USA 2 tracks on the PC. There was a Daytona USA 2 at the Hudson Cinema, but I played on it every time at the cinema. What's two dollars? LOL

Apple ][e in Elementry


 I used this in 5th through 8th grade for word processing (Microsoft Word) and online encyclopedias through Netscape Navigator. The public school had an Power Macintosh 5200.


I used Apple ][e in 1990 - 1994 from 1st to 5th grade. The school thought keyboarding, yet everyone in the class used Oregon Trail, Space Invaders, some Disney game, Number Munchers.

SHMUPs Episode IV: CAVE-MAME

I think that MAME killed arcades in the United States, and that I am the only person who reveals it. There are $1000 MAME cabinets on Ebay and MAME works on GP2x Cannoo. It is obvious. MAME has been downloadable since 1997 approximately when arcades started to decrease in popularity. The Frankfurt School controls the Arcades died because... articles so they can't mention MAME even if they wanted to. I released my MAME Rom list back in 2006 on this site.

DonPachi 1995 Atlus
DoDonPachi 1997 Atlus
Peak Performance 1997 Atlus
Steep Slope Sliders 1997 Capcom
ESP Ra.De. 1998 Atlus
Dangun Feveron / Fever S.O.S. 1998 Nihon System
Uo Poko 1998 Jaleco
Guwange 1999 Atlus
Progear 2001 Capcom

I also got some others

Tetris the Grandmasters
Tetris The Cube Master
Cotton 2
Cotton Boomerang
G Darius
Radiant Silvergun

ST-V Bios
Neo-GEo Bios
Naomi bios



I found Espgaluda and Mushihime-sama on the MAME UI list. I couldn't find them on the Rom site. I only have these Espgaluda and Mushihime-sama DVD images for PCSX2. Aksys Games publishes Cave Shumps in the United States.

I think she really likes the Chinese Communist Party and reads Deng Xiaoping stuff. Her favorite theory is ‘capitalist roaders’ I’m sure.

Owning Panzer Dragoon Saga since today

=I remember an article in 2005 Game Informer issue where Panzer Dragoon Saga is the most desired collector's game, because nobody played it. I owned Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, and Panzer Dragoon Orta for six years. I bought Panzer Dragoon at Funcoland in November 2000 and was reading all the Saturn reviews at Dave's Sega Saturn Page. In 2000, I wanted to play Nights into Dreams and Sonic 3D Blast; whereby, I would have all the mainstream consoles in 32-bit age.

I also got to play Radiant Silvergun and DoDonPachi in SSF from a Megaupload download.

In January 2007, I torrented it and I played the first three CDs in SSF emulator on Windows. Today, I bought a copy for $167 off Amazon. On Ebay, Panzer Dragoon Saga was only $300+. I got Valkyrie Profile on PSP, the Playstation equivalent in price. Another Saturn game I've been eyeing is Guardian Heroes, a sequel to a highly rated Gunstar Heroes. Guardian Heroes is on Xbox 360 arcade, and got a 8.5 out of 10.





Panzer Dragoon Saga never went down in price as people got tired of it. I was hoping it is somewhat of a collector's item for attention on Youtube. Panzer Dragoon Saga is a milestone to get over 200 views on Youtube. Guardian Heroes would also attract attention, not as much as Panzer Dragoon Saga.

I'll post a photo when it arrives.

PS4 went x64

Sony was developing a lot of videogames on PC so the pubilsher thought to add an AMD x64 CPU and a Radeon HD 7850, 2 GB of GDDR5 to their PS4. Sony wants you to be able to use Bluray on Playstation 4, otherwise Bluray would be replaced soon. I don’t know of any Bluray competitors or successors.

Microsoft is working on a 6 core ARM CPU and Radeon HD 7850 for Xbox Loop.

This is great news, because I dislike paying $60 for DirectX 9.0c. PS3 and Xbox 360 should sell new games at $40 considering their DirectX 9.0c quality. 3DS has it at this price point.

I happen to look at System16.com and noticed Namco, Capcom Taito, and SEGA all went to Intel X64 motherboards! The MAME cabinet is replacing all arcade cabinets out there. Advance MAME Linux DVD.
