I just noticed that the member list contained 2164 members, and by just checking the first 5 pages (sorting by username) I noticed that it looks like many of them could be spam-bots.
This made my wonder if there ever is a clean up of the database removing these accounts?

I've noticed that too, that most of the people registered to use this forum never actually make any posts (and I doubt that they just read them without wanting to post anything), and that there only seems to be about 30+ active people here.

Some people can't login because someone screwed up everyone's passwords. I know like 70 people who had this happen.

I used to go through and prune out the user list sometimes, but it's been a while. There's not really a quick and easy way to do it (unless there's mods for it, but, bleh..).

I was going through the list, starting at the end sorted by date joined, so there are a lot of clean pages there (and at the beginning). But there's just too many, and it's not really broke.

Eh, this topic is kinda funny to me, as I might be considered as a "to-purge member" since I did 1 post then... vanishing in the dark.

But I actually lurk around and spy new posts since few months ( I think 2 months) and quietly read any programming related topic. I'm studying electronic at college and we learn to program both PC and MCUs (the so used PIC microcontroller), but the teaching lacks assembly which I find IMO essential in order to be a good programmer. The 6502 assembly is neat and sweet and looks promissing for learning purposes, which is simple but powerful and complete. Over all, the NES always facined me.

A day I'll make a 2A03 soundcard (well probably a tweaked NES card plugged inte the NES with serial or USB interface to the computer) for playing back NSFs or just send MIDI messages and I'd want to do a NES game (in a cartridge) for my girlfriend.

Anyway, this site is super. Hello world !
