  • Re: Sql Constants!

    [quote user="Darsithis"] I got the impression from a few people that they thought I wrote this. I did not.

    [quote user="OldCrow"]Also, 360 had a PowerPC CPU, which I'df call downright eccentric. ...[/quote] And so does the GameCube, Wii, Wii U, and PS3 (Ok, so the PS3's main processor is PowerPC, while a bunch of other cores are specialized, making it the "cell" architecture, but it is still PowerPC based at its roots).

  • Re: do_not_remove.txt

    [quote user="joe.edwards"][quote user="mikeTheLiar"]What's the worst that could happen?[/quote] The application searches for do_not_remove.txt, so that it knows what directory to put its files in.
