    A big hush-hush for <I>that</I>?

    Also, you're using a standard-upper-class-desktop-computer as the Retro server?

    Anyway, CONGLATURATIONS

    Has it ever occurred to you that a server, in essence, is a "standard-upper-class-desktop-computer" with just a few hardware additions that are useful in a multiple-server environment?

    Anyway, congrats, Retro! 7 years, and hopefully many more to come.

    Oooh...all I'm taking so far is C++ and Visual BASIC.

    If anyone else has any other ideas on how to contribute (besides donating, I already splurged on pre-ordering the new Bentley Jones album and rechargable batteries for my Wii-Mote), with basic C++ knowledge and very basic Visual BASIC, lemme know.

    A server can have literally any specification as possible, usually hardware is modified and designed for server use. Retro's specifications are fine. A dual-core server with 4GB RAM and 500GB of space is suitable for Retro's things. I mean, if you're gonna bitch about server specs, the SSRG's server has an Intel Celeron processor and 512MB of RAM.

    Hey, if I've learned anything from the Red Green Show, it's that duct tape can be used to fix anything.

    <b>Anything.</b>

    If BadnikNET is held together by duct tape, than that's fine with me. :colbert: :v:

    Nonetheless, we had a terrific year last year (even if we did have some issues). The wiki is growing like mad, the numerous discoveries, the start to 3D Sonic hacking, all in all, very nice. :thumbsup:
