Apparently Conficker was generally a hoax. It did modify itself and it behavior, but you have to already have the virus on your PC before it can do anything.

Today is April Fools day! BEWARE OF SCAMS. :twisted:

Hey, everyone . . . My dad just had a stroke. They say he's looking pretty bad and they won't let me and my brothers go see him, but I just wanted to let you guys know in case I'm gone for awhile. The Atlas is pretty much like my home away from home away from home, and I love you guys. I'll see you later. :)

Ooh, that doesn't sound good. But don't lose hope, my Grandma recently had a stroke. It wasn't looking too good for her either but she bounced back. I hope he gets better.

Oh my, Tiptup - I hope everything works out alright for you and your family.


On an unrelated note... Why the heck is DKC Atlas reported as being in the United States by the Flagfox addon? What in blazes is going on here?

Hostname: http://www.dkc-atlas.com
ISP: Unknown
Country: United States
City: Atlanta, Georgia
Postal Code: 30303 <<< Hey a synchronicity! ....never mind.

Perhaps this has something to do with where the domain name itself is registered? Extremely odd... :|

Kiddy does. Because he's awesome.

Anyway, Dad's home now, but he's still pretty weak. The doctors at our local hospital said that he did have a stroke, and they gave him some blood thinners and sent him up to a more sophisticated facility. Here, they said they couldn't find any traces of a stroke, and deduced that he had a "berserk migraine attack". He's using a cane to walk, but I think he's going to be okay. :)

1.- Ok, that made me laugh 8-)

2.- I'm sorry to hear those news Tip =( But it's cool to hear your dad will be ok =)

3.- Qyz buys his hosting service, it's not him who has a server; so probably the hosts allocated his domain in a server in the US?

I was in NYC for a week but my hotel blocked the internet connection. I can see that the forum has been very active (it's gonna take me a long time to finish reading all of these posts) and it's really good to have an internet connection that doesn't cost 15 bucks.

Oh, and I finally got my hands on a DSi (and on the midnight launch on Nintendo World) and it's pretty cool, but it's just a DS with two cameras, a music player and downloadable stuff.

It's nice, I guess. The internet browser (which I'm using right now) is actually very decent, and I'd say that the keyboard is actually better than the iPhone's. It does have its flaws: it can't display pages with too much stuff on them (Facebook) and it can't display flash content.

The only game I've downloaded so far is WarioWare: Snapped, which is EXTREMELY short (the whole game IS a minigame), it easily loses its replay value, and you need perfect lightning (which loses the point of being portable). I guess I'll wait for more games to come, since there's only like 6 games out.

Luckily, I received 1000 free points with it so it doesn't really matter much which games I buy.

So far, it's in last place. But I had a tough time casting my vote; it's paired with Super Mario RPG (which is one of my favorite games of all time). GameFAQs is EVIL! :evil: Anyway, I ended up voting for DKC2.

I just noticed that in the user profiles that Qyz spelled "favorite" as "favourite". Darn you, English language!

So anyway, today I got back from a youth retreat to Panama City Beach, Florida. It was really nice, but the beach patrol wouldn't let us get in the water because there was a DANGEROUS UNDERCURRENT. His megaphone was loud. I also saw a guy refilling a Pepsi machine, out-jumped the college kids at an Ohio Avenue concert, and hit it off with some of the local ladies. All in all I'd say it was a good trip. :)

For some reason I got this for a few minutes, only for Atlas. I've been playing Wii games and just stopped/got on to check atlas when this happened:

"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.dkc-atlas.com
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection."

Hmm...

Postby FefeRawft » May 9th, 2009, 7:45 am

The semi-formal is coming up at my school soon, and for some odd reason, I have a Hannah Montana wig. My cousin and I always do really weird things at my school to make people laugh. Example:

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn20 ... AG0244.jpg

(I'm actually a lot older than I look, I'm just short.)

Can anyone see were this is going?

I put on the wig and go as his date. How awkward, on a scale of 1-10?

Well, I got to beat Tooie yesterday before my Xbox 360 got the E73 error. The "stay behind her and speed up at the end" trick really does work on Canary Mary's last race!

Very nice, smooth lance battle remix there, Gnaw.

And y'know Tiptup, that's the ONLY piece I'm missing on my latest Tooie file on my 64. Damn you, Canary Mary!! Rawrgh!

Speaking of Mewtwo/Pokeymans, anyone on the DKCAtlas play Diamond/Pearl/Platinum right now? I started playing Diamond with a friend over the last two weeks. It's about how I remember it to be.

Man, I really wish that Nintendo E3 conference would start... I have triple free tomorrow morning so I could even do the super cool thing and wait up for it to start/finish. I did that last year and was horribly let down, but if I saw new Zelda, it'd be worth it.

When does E3 start again? I really hope that since they recognize nobody was happy last year, they'll step it up big time this year for the REAL gamers.

Punch-Out! was a pretty good start I think, but better, they must do.

And please don't let Cammie Dunaway speak again.

Yeah, I heard he got the Donkey Kong Jr. record! Can't wait until he kicks Billy Mitchell's butt on the original Donkey Kong later this summer. :)

And my birthday's tomorrow (yay) and I'm probably going to get a Nintendo DSi . . . but if I do, it'll pretty much be the only thing I get. So for anyone here who has a DSi: do you think it's a worthy upgrade to the DS Lite, or should I hold off until they're cheaper?

I only got the DSi for three reasons:

1) My four year-old DS was in bad shape and was extremely clunky and its limited availability of replacement styluses.

2) I just happened to be in New York at the time it launched.

3) Camera, music player, internet, DSiWare, and plays games? Forget the GBA slot!

Yeah, I guess it's not a bad upgrade.
