I'll be seeding (meaning once I download the file, I'll keep bittorrent open) for the next few days. I'm usually on AIM for a good part of the day if you have any questions Smile

what? ...I'm only wondering if I was downloading the right file thing. :-/
Cos usually I see a NY download on sites similar to that one (with different regions to pick from,etc) ...so I didn't know which one to pick. It ain't whinin', it's confusion. Sweatdrop

I think he means the download page for the BitTorrent client itself (from SourceForge). In that case, you can choose any of the locations (the multiple locations are just there to help you find a faster download, but they're all the same file).

Mine seems to be the biggest and the longest...>_< sorry for extending the downloading times everyone ;.; Anyways, these are really cool...if we get enough people to vote, this will be "a very close race" Big Grin

Ah, yes...that is quite an interesting story. The first I remember seeing 'it' was a couple of years ago via the 'secret link' picture on the inquirer - a really cool IT/computer news website, IMHO. Anyway - many, many years ago, a Japanese company called Toaplan(?) ported their game 'Zero Wing' to the Sega Genesis. An intro scene was added with a notoriously *BAD* english translation. The bad translation was noted by many game mags and websites, and it just sort of spread from there. Smile Here is a site that probably does a better job explaining (and documenting) the whole phenomenon. Be sure to watch 'Video 1' - I think that is what really started things in earnest. Wink

......Take off every zig!!!.....

OMG!!!!! "Someone Set up us the bomb" ROFL.......all your base indeed.....he's got my vote

No offense to the creator of that video - but it was a ripoff of someone elses idea that was already proven funny.

I think it might be called the adaptation of a Net legend video.

Much agreed Pygmalion. The thing that made it so funny (to me at least) was the knowledge of the source. - BTW, I notice you've shaved.... Big Grin

Don't feel bad, Evan - I think most people are simply holding off commenting until Krang sets up the official voting/discussion thread. Smile
evanASF27 04-02-2004 06:24 PM
hmm good point...
IamRogerSmith 04-02-2004 06:27 PM
Yeah Evan, don't worry. I told Zola that you got my vote (since I got to see all the videos first, hehe). It's definately funny :0)
