Lele's doing other things now. He had no interest in renewing the domain after I asked him, so I said fuck it and took it for myself, reason being that I wanted a neat gTLD .net domain.

Holy shit I've been looking for a Futaba clone for ages. Thanks Spaz ^_^


 Post date: 2024/6/23 (Sun) 07:53 Poster: spaztron64 Delete

Yes, this is powered by miniBBS, a popular Japanese single-thread bulletin board Perl script.
I've also written my own Futaba clone entirely from scratch, which you can check out at
Redirects are a bit screwed up though, so don't be surprised if POST requests look like they'll never end.

Khaludy, hi! It's far from dead, I monitor this place and I've just finished deploying an Exchange 5.5 mail server.
As I mentioned below, EVE Burst Error is a personal recommendation of mine. The official English localization for Windows 95 is... not the greatest, but it'll do.
There's also Children of Belgrade Metro if you can read Japanese.

new to this, hope this is not dead, if not then i see you guys are fans of VN's so i would like to see if any of you know of any cool and obscure VN's that you guys enjoy.

I've begun playing the original Bible Black game. Its interesting but it sent me down an occult rabbit hole. Can anyone recommend some good VNs and Japanese PC titles from the 90s early 2000s? Just Japanese stuff.

Makes sense, I would love to fucking like, get over my intense fear of talking in new discord servers and try and get some feedback and discuss it with people, but for now i'll be lurking, and tbh joining and then instantly asking people to help me just feels shameful.
On your one person remark, yeah you're right, but I'm currently in the perfect situation to grind out and put as much information as possible over on Retro. A national strike going on is giving me all the free time in the world. And at least i got one of the admins to help me with stuff :p

RE: Possible Wiki?

 Post date: 2024/4/11 (Thu) 07:41 Poster: spaztron64 Delete

Quite frankly I've no idea anymore. It's been discussed over and over again, but nobody has an interest in really dedicating to it, and it's not like one person can cover everything since nobody in the scene can possibly know everything about the platform.

Possible Wiki?

 Post date: 2024/4/11 (Thu) 01:11 Poster: Saad Delete

found myself here through my usual web surfing, ended up on a discord server for the PC-98 which RULES. Cool place :p
The idea of having a central english language wiki that covers info about the PC-9800 Series is appealing to me so...
I started work on that NEC Retro wiki! But i wanted to check here too, is there still any plans for a PC-98 wiki or is NEC Retro still the closest thing to it?

Alright, done the application through Edge.
It turns out that something in my browser (Waterfox) is triggering the KEEP OUT prompt.
Could be a plugin, could be Mozilla-related stuff, I've no idea.

The work IP isn't, though some of the registration questions are beyond my level of knowledge.

Well... no, not at all. You got sexually harassed without even realizing it. Store staff is not paid to put their hands on people.

RE: Did you just say "watched you undress"?

 Post date: 2024/4/3 (Wed) 17:45 Poster: Anonymouse Delete

Yeah isn't that what fitting rooms are for? We'd pick out clothes, she'd come inside, watch me undress and put the clothes on, give me feedback. She even played with my hair to get the look and gave me some skincare recommendations.
It was super uncomfortable at first. She was touchy and I get nervous in public but I calmed down.

Did you just say "watched you undress"?

Good encounter, sad realization

 Post date: 2024/4/2 (Tue) 23:32 Poster: Anonymouse Delete

I'm probably going to get flak for saying this but I went to the store today. As a hikineet I have no idea how to buy clothes. I can't even tell the difference between male and female clothes unless its blatantly obvious.
The only store worker there was a trans. I was shocked at first because I'd never seen one in person. They helped me pick out an outfit. Got me comfortable. Gave me style tips. Even watched me undress and try stuff on so I could get
feedback.But then I realized, they are paid to do this, trans or no trans. Its like we live in a world where there is no real human contact but people simulate friendship, kindness etc. like welcome to the desert of the real
where genuine human face to face encounters are faked.

I wish I never left my room.

Goodbye World!

Re: Tired

 Post date: 2024/2/27 (Tue) 05:42 Poster: Denpa Delete

If I wanted to relax I would normally just listen to white noise sounds while pretending you in the scene.
A windy area is a place where I would like to imagine I would be when listening to white noise sounds.
The place I would want to die in is a cold snowy place.
A cold desert on top of a hill, I want to be filled with ectascy before the moment I perish from this world.

I don't know what I even do most days but just simply existing and forgetting what I do.
I'm not sure if I even depise the world because simply I don't think I care about anything at all to have an emotional reaction.

Is the purpose of the simulation to gather data on how humans interact with the world?
Or is it just the creator game?
I am not sure what it is but I don't think the creator of this world is a loving being.
My existence is currently is shutting my self from the world and conusming media.


 Post date: 2024/2/26 (Mon) 21:29 Poster: Midori Delete

What do you listen to when you want to just relax and chill out but your full of pure rage towards the world and want to scream?

Damn, keep failing the sentience test... What does this mean? Am I simulation after all? Is this all a lie? Am I just another scraptard on the shelf?

I'm going to try bringing my site back online soon.
I haven't been able to use MikuMikuOnline because it keeps crashing whenever I open it.
(It's not a linux/wine bug. I'm using Windows XP.)
I want to use IRC again but I haven't gotten any VPN software to work yet.
There are more things I want to do. I've just been worn out for a while.
I will check this BBS if you want to talk.
