Just a quick message to let you know what has been
going on and what will be going on at midnight PST. First of all, I apologize for the hiatus in service yesterday. The reason
was that I received the SCSI adapter yesterday and decided
to upgrade the machine. I went to CompUSA and found some
great prices on the RAM and decided to a double upgrade.
I then shut down the site for a while to do the RAM upgrade
(it now runs on 288MBs of RAM) and the SCSI upgrade (it now
has 12.9GBs of hard drive space). For those of you that
don't know, SCSI is a much faster alternative to your
regular Hard Drive and perfect for Web Service since it
takes a big load out of the CPU for file access. Since Linux is not that user friendly, it decided to mess everything up and the Ethernet adapter stopped working. After a few re-installs, web research and everything, the
machine is back to normal. I apologize in advance for possible regular stops
of service which may happen due to the face that I will be
installing loads of software in that server and may have to
reboot every once in a while. Those times you should be able
to load the page in a minute or two.

Now for tonight, I've decided to open up the ROMs area.
However, only Retrocade ROMS will be available. The
PAKs that make it work will be in the Emulators area.
I will be posting those as soon as the official release
ones are available. They haven't been made available yet
so don't download the ones that are around, those won't
Keep an eye on EmuViews for the latest developments on
Retrocade (and anything else that may happen today).
