Now I'm quitting!!! - September 20,2000 by JoseQ
Zophar is departing Zophar's Domain and in his many thanks to everyone he didn't mention me. That's gotta be as good a reason as any to quit the scene, so I'm quitting now. Ok, maybe I'm not quitting, but I thought it was newsworthy to post about Zophar, and to respectfully say farewell to one of the Pioneers of emulation webmastering, with a site that is almost four years old. I must say he deserves major Kudos for sticking around for that long and his decision is well respected. School can be a very important thing in anybody's life. But hey school doesn't last forever, so who knows, maybe Zophar comes back to the site one day... Will it be called Zophar's Domain still? Either way, best wishes go out to Brad in his new ventures!

Whoa! Had a weird dream last night, woke up sweathing like a pig, shaking like a leaf in a strong wind. Slowly, my senses came back to me, and I recalled my dream, a trip, a trip in time.

In my dream, I woke up like I do (did) everyday. Went to the washroom for a quick shower to wake up, started waking up the kids (give us another a minute dad!). Weird, the kids look older, shoulda stayed in the shower a couple more minutes. Anyway, the wife tells me to move my ass. I'm walking down the stairs to iron my clothes. Of course, while the iron gets warmed up, gotta log on for a quick peak at the Emulation news sites (a daily chore). Here goes:

- That's odd, what the hell is this? Dave's Classics link is dead? Must be a server upgrade.

- Hey! Now Node 99 is gone too! WTF?

- Now I get an "Emy News closes Down" message from Emu News World? Hello? Ok, something is wrong here

- To double check, I'm doing a quick search for Dave's Classics and... www.VintageGaming.com? What's with this green theme? What happened to the classic Blue theme with pics of Pacman characters, etc? I think I hear the twilight zone sound track.

Then, it hits me. I'm not dreaming, I'm fully awake. Dave's changed, Emu news world quit updating back in March 99, Node 99 has been all but forgotten, but it's nice to see EmuXpress is STILL updated as often as it did 4 years ago!!! eheh

Yeah, in the past 4 years, some sites have come, and some have gone. But one thing has not changed, my respect for all emulated things. From the emu programmers, to the emulation site web masters, to news posters, to the original creators of the gems of a past era: A big THANKS for the great times to all involved, specifically on this day to you Zophar.

It's nice to know all those pay checks I invested into the arcades back in the 80's wasnt' completely wasted moolah...

There have been very few people i have met in the emulation scene that i never though i'd ever see leave it. I just can't think of the scene W/O Zophar... But I wont freak or anything. Over the years now i have met people on undernet,EFNet, mesg. boards and websites that i never thought i'd see again and BOOM! one day theres someone I havent seen in a year right there in #roms4free or someplace. I guess what i'm saying is, Brad aint really leaving at all, he's just gonna be alot harder to find.

THERE NOW REMAINES ONLY ONE KING OF THE WEB DOMAIN.... AND HIS NAME IS JQ!
