ok not really.

Poop, extended break or no, he's like one of the super ninja few people that's doing anything for emulation on the mac :(

Looks like I have yet another reason to fix my X86 laptop now.

Basically... a buffer between emu authors and fanmail. It would filter out both overly ecstatic praise and rabid flaming, forwarding only the useful stuff. Those not forwarded would be stripped out of their sender and recipient info and displayed on a Hall of Shame page.

Just an idea, but it would work, probably :-)

Probably a message board makes more sense in that case, because as soon as someone is filtering your e-mail it sort of becomes a community.

Maybe a site could donate message boards and moderators to 'high-risk' people?

And he charges for ports of free emus. The man's a tool. Bigtime.

I suppose for Mac people it sucks he's gone and also it doesn't. The dude freeloads taking free programs and charges for them on the Mac which is uncool. But in the same light no one deserves a pile of cocksucking faceless cowards taking pot shots on boards and emails where they can't get a face full of fist in return for it either.

For Mac people who like the guy and stuff sorry he left and hope for YOU he returns. If not, it's a perfect example why people need to start cracking down on douchebags like these. It's been years coming and should be handled somehow.

roushimsx.com isn't getting used for much these days and could easilly house said message boards, but I don't know of anyone that's bored enough to moderate them.

(insert obligatory swipe at Mac users overpaying for stuff and coming back for more here)

?? Does he do it to any project without being asked? Any that the original authors didn't ask him first?

Like complaining that Aaron is really uncool for working on Nicolas's open source software... how uncool...

Richard Bannister and co ported just about every emulator which could possibly be ported to the Mac.

Anyone remember Asgard 68000 by the way? Whatever happened to that, is the code still around anywhere?

Eh, does he?

http://www.bannister.org/software/dgen.htm
Don't see any charging there...


http://www.bannister.org/software/sms.htm

None there either. Surely even if he did charge for something he wouldn't have done it against the license? He doesn't strike me as that kind of guy.

By the way, the GNU license doesn't prohibit you from charging for distibution of software.
