Does anybody know how to kill that stupid MSN Messenger icon in the System Tray? It's not there originally but whenever I go to Hotmail, it pops up. When I send a mail in Hotmail, it disappears and when the page finishes loading, the icon appears again. My computer's already slow to begin with so h...

I do remember having read somewhere that, if you install MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger will automatically get installed. I don't know if this is necessarily the case, but Windows really doesn't want you to get rid of Windows Messenger. Also, a couple of the tips involve doing some registry editin...

My favourite site for speed runs is http://bisqwit.iki.fi/nesvideos/ . Don't be fooled by the link - it's got videos from multiple systems - mostly older systems. There's also http://home.comcast.net/~arcthelad/ ... they say the site has been "obsoleted", but it still has some links that the first s...

Does anyone know where I can find the ending to Cyborg 009, Genesis of Next ? I've been dying to burn it on a CD for a while. One of the sites mentioned earlier in this thread, http://gendou.com/ , seems to have it. You have to register (it's free) to use the site. OK ... http://cosmic-collapse.com...

I looked through this site, and saw that Gendou's anime music was on here, but the link didn't work. I just tried the links to this site that are in this thread, and they work fine. (In case we're on a different page, http://gendou.com/amusic/ is the link in question). And yes you do need to be a m...

First of all, it looks like http://gendou.com/amusic/ has the Narue no Sekai OP & ED as well as the Haibane Renmei OP & ED; however, you do apparently need to create a (free) login to use the site. Anyway ... I came across another site with a whole bunch of links to music sites. Unfortunately, the o...

These were packaged into one game called Tetris and Dr Mario. There was a third game on there that was a combo of the two games, but it's been so long, I forget the name of the third game. Unless... Tetris and Dr Mario was available for NES. I don't know because I never played NES. Can you clarify ...

My friend had an Atari, and I remember playing the old Mario Bros. game (that got pretty tough as you progressed ... at least, it seemed tough at the time). Another friend had an Intellivision ... I remember playing Sub Hunt, Snafu, Tron Deadly Discs, and Lock 'N' Chase, among others. (There's actua...

I got this for Christmas, and finally tried it out a couple of days ago. It's pretty fun so far. I only tried the 50cc Mushroom Cup, and won it.

My all-time favourite is Super Mario Kart for the SNES (I think I've raced Ghost Valley 1 several hundred times by now, including about 80x in one night).

I was planning to buy the manga from Animaxis . But right now they don't appear to have it available. Does anyone know of another good place that has the manga available? Thanks in advance.

Well, Game 1 is in the books, and it was pretty crazy. The final was 11-9 Boston. Boston did make 4 errors, but somehow managed to hold on. Woody Williams just didn't pitch well, but then Wakefield started to falter. It came down to a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 8th off the foul pole in righ...

Well, I do feel for Houston ... the Astros have never been to the World Series. However, I did pick St. Louis from the start, so I'm happy to see the Cardinals get through. (St. Louis won 5-2 in Game 7, by the way, for anyone who doesn't know.) It looks like it'll be Woody Williams against Tim Wakef...

The curse isn't broken till they win the Series. And even if they do, they'll be no better than the Phillies or the Braves or any other flash-in-the-pan team. I have a hard time equating the Red Sox with the Braves. I mean, the Braves have won the NL West or East every year since 1991 with the exce...

http://bisqwit.iki.fi/nesvideos/WhyAndHow.html is a good page for describing the art of making time-attack videos. Basically, some people do re-do parts over and over again to get it right, and then just keep the correct version. It's still cool, though. I don't care if I played the Level 8 tank/shi...

I'm not so sure about this though. In world eight where he's fighting the beaver-things that throw wrenchs, it looks like they touch him, yet nothing happens. Some of his jumping into/on top of enemies looks a little odd. Like he should have been killed. I don't doubt it's possibile, but the video ...

I've been watching all of the playoffs this year (as you could probably guess by looking at last year's posts ...). I was cheering for Anaheim against Boston, but I knew it was a long shot. Same with Twins over the Yankees. Oh well - no one would have watched an Anaheim/Minnesota ALCS, but now that ...

My sources tell me that it's called "Chiisaki Mono", but don't take my word on it. Anime News Network agrees with you ... http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=2388.

I loved Full Moon wo Sagashite (the anime). That is one of my favourite series of all time. I have some of the manga (haven't read any of it yet). Overall, I enjoyed the Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne anime (although the ending seemed kind of rushed ...). I've heard the manga ending was done better (I have ...
