Good luck with those! Sumo sounds pretty cool, dunno what they're working on at the moment but I hope it's good.

More than half of this file is unused padding.

It's only wasting 4 kilobytes out of about 7, though. I wonder if anyone even noticed.

Isn't it just AMAZING how much extra unneeded and/or redundant crap developers pack into files sometimes?

ROM dumps tend to be the same, though... no one ever seems to trim the empty space...lol

If you trim a ROM dump, it's not the whole ROM anymore. Plus, just because it looks like padding doesn't mean it's actually unused.

In this file, the padding data looks like it's part of the file, with regular patterns similar to uncompressed 8bpp graphics. Whatever it is, I haven't been able to decode it into anything recognizable.

Meanwhile, the actual 8bpp graphics data is compressed to 245 bytes at the end of the file. Had I not found the source code, I would probably still be trying to figure it out...

There are cases where the game is significantly smaller than the cartridge space allotted, so devs can sometimes sneak things in. Here is my go-to example for this scenario.

True, and i know ROM hacks tend to use the freespace (like pokemon) but, still... there are times it's easier/smarter to remove, depending on your purposes. All I'm saying is there's sometimes stuff that doesn't even have an actual reason to be there. Easter eggs and unused/removed graphics or code is alright, but redundant stuff you don't even NEED, and solely serves to waste space? That does somewhat bother me. The Director/Shockwave formats seem to do this a lot, actually. But, whatever. It's only really a problem when a majority percentage of the file is just freespace or even invalid entries. (again bringing-up shockwave, free and junk sections don't appear to exist, but the mapping table indexes them, anyways ... /:)

Also, I think I mentioned a little while ago I was trying to rip graphics from the PS1 port of viewpoint? I found a greayscale photo in there that I'm assuming has some tie-in with the devs... IDK if this has been discovered yet... I've never found documentation/rips from this game. I did a reverse image search, but nothing came-up... Anyone here interested in taking a look, maybe? Shouldn't take me *too* long to find that picture again...

This cold doesn't want to go away. I've been coughing for over a week now, and my nose have become stuffed up again after lying down for too long.

At least I've demolished my, uh... "stash". Giving myself time to get it all out of my system before going back in.

I didn't even give them a fighting chance. The second I realized what's going on I called my allergologist and got a shot. Not this year I'm not gonna feel miserable for months.

One of many reasons I use firefox. lol
And I plan to drop that, soon, too...

I've been unable to load Adult Swim's video stuff, anyways, though
I've tried a few times, with absolutely no success

I need to do some spring cleaning and help my mom get all of her clothes out of the living room and patio (and probably donate them).

Went to check on something I sent myself a few years ago...

Anti-virus warning - 1 attachment contains a virus or blocked file. Downloading this attachment is disabled. Learn more

ALRIGHT GMAIL/GOOGLE, YOU KNOW WHAT? BURN IN FUCKING HELL!

I switched my main email to gmail because at the time, it was better than yahoo. Well, they've slowly become less and less progressive... particularly with adding "security features that have made my life HELL"

So, let's take it a step further and not only add to the increasing blacklist of files, but fucking lock you out of your previous attachments of these formats. THANKS ASSHOLES, REALLY APPRECIATE IT, KEEP IT UP, YOU'RE GETTING A CLASS ACTION SO FAR UP YOUR FAT ASS...

Guess who's not sleeping tonight, and has to put literally EVERYTHING on hold to go and fix probably HUNDREDS of fucking attachments so they're "secure" (or just don't trip security...)

I'VE HAD IT

I most likely will be finding a new email provider. This is fucking BS. When I spend more time FIGHTING my applications/sites than actually USING them, and when it cuts-in to my other projects or basic needs, there's a problem... SUCK A DICK YA CORPORATE BASTARDS, CUZ I WILL NOW BE LOOKING EVER HARDER FOR WAYS BOTH TO BREAK MYSELF OF YOU, BUT BRING YOUR PRECIOUS LITTLE EMPIRE TUMBLING DOWN!

Now, I got a bunch of raw email messages to frigging download and practically ANCIENT hard drive to probably do a number on or finally kill from CONSTANT file re-writes. Thanks a lot Google. Really, I'm truly impressed of your business standards these days, yu're setting such a great example for other people on how to treat your customers, or hell, fellow human beings. You proud of yourselves?

//end rant, yeah, I'm toxic now. This is no small issue for me because there's so many things in my emails that literally ONLY exist there, and yeah, I'll be pressing charges if security features lock me out of it.

There's this one guy on N-chan that likes to spam pictures of a girl from a Korean MMO I've never heard of. He's been doing it for almost a year and he won't stop no matter what the moderators do.
