Konamito halts editorial activity

Topic: Websites
Languages:

Years of serving as a beacon in cyberspace, the electronic highway, and as a source of information and inspiration for the MSX community has passed - seven years to be exact. After pondering upon his decision for a while, Konamito's webmaster/main editor, namely Konamito himself, has decided to discontinue his work on the blog. Maintaining a website of this stature admittedly takes quite some personal time to invest, and Konamito - in his own words - had to face reality, meaning that today, he couldn't produce the time, effort and motivation essential for doing so anymore.

The site will stay online until the online contract runs out (within months). If somebody is interested in reclaiming the material published so far - you're encouraged to do just that as soon as possible. Moreover, Konamito's decision implies that the native MSX-BASIC Contest is hereby suspended and possibly revoked.

What happened? You found a game that you cracked, added ripped graphics and was trying to sell for some bucks completely free on eMule? And now you're abandoning the scene forever? ... Hmmm, maybe I'm just making confusion because Spanish is somehow similar to Portuguese.

Too bad.

I visit the site everyday.... Then again maintaining the site must take some time indeed. I hope the BASIC contest will continue.

I checked the site for the first time today... Maybe some time before, but since I'm not a fan of latin languages, I skip it...

Which makes me wonder: huey, do you read Spanish? What was your particular reason to visit it everyday? (ALso asking, because I also never check that site and now I need to know what I missed!)

Hey , guys ! : I find pointless talk about Spanish , Portuguese , Emule´s things ... It´s hard for Konamito to leave his activities and , for almost seven years , he has offered to us a great MSX site , always with news and updates , and a BASIC contest !! It´s a great work , and he deserves the best of luck in his personal projects ...

Farewell , fella ! You know you can count on us !

Well, Konamito, I think you're doing the right thing.
I must confess that, living here among the monkeys and bananas, it's not easy for me to understand this HATE that dutch/nordic/saxon/aryan have with Spain, Italy and Portugal.

At least now we're investing in weapons here. As soon as Brazil takes its place among the dominant global powers we can help our "brother-latin-countries" and NUKE'em.

We had enough!

First, former Real Madrid star, and twice world cup winner with the Brazilian Team Roberto Carlos was taunted with a banana by a Dutch man, during the opening of a game between Roberto Carlos’ current team, the Holland Premier Club Anzhi Makhackala and St. Petesburg’s Zenit.

And what about Blanka? That's how Dutch people see us?

WTF muffie why would you think Dutch have anything against Spain or Brazil? That’s just stupid. And how is it even relevant here?

Like Meits and Manuel, I simply can’t read the site so I don’t know about it and I’m curious about it too. As we’re in a different language group latin languages are not easy for us, I only barely know French myself. If you’re getting upset at us because of some soccer hooligan then I don’t know what to say to you.

Grauw: best is not to say anything to Muffie; it likes to stir things up and has been warned enough to quit its trolling...

Good luck with your further endeavours Konamito!

Nope. I read pictures and use google translate. Next to Konamito I also read Karoshi's Forum everyday.

@Grauw: Nevermind muffie and/aka lritchie. They are just doing what they are good at; trolling. Hannibal

It's a good thing we don't generalise; otherwise we'd think that all Brazilians are trolls. Smile

Ok. I'm ok now. Let's all be friends: Imagine all the PE-OPLEouuu, ... You may say that I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one.
So, not all Brazilians are trollers.

The big news will eventually reach MRC (Konamito and Karoshi).
