@Edhe: the 64DD was announced for NA and EU but was only actually released in Japan, where it was indeed a failure. it would be a 'hoax' as defined by the original post, though, even though it's not actually one. :3

it's not that he won't get the girlfriends (seriously, who follows their guy into the bathroom to make sure he washes his hands?), it's that he runs the chance of giving them the trots if they hold hands for a while and then get some ice cream (or something else potentially messy that you eat with your hands hahaha). :3

you can play Japanese DS games on an English DS or DSi no problem. when they start coming out with DSi-only games, though, those will be region-encoded. :)

suggestions:

  • colors for each person's username that we can choose? it's all grey at the moment, so it's kinda hard to pick one another out when you've got a bunch of people with long names all talking at once.
  • a list of people currently in the chatroom would be nice. someone in chat (i forget who) was suggesting we have our user avatars listed too (in case people know you better by your avatar than your username, lol), but i don't really care either way; i can recognize people with or without their avatars :3
  • sometimes graphic smilies work, and sometimes they don't... personally, i'd rather they not show up as graphics (ASCII ftw), but it would be nice if either they all show up or they all don't.
  • will forum mods be mods in chat as well? if so, it would be nice if there were some kind of notice letting us know this, or some kind of link telling us where to go or who to report to when someone's in chat being a jerk...
    i mean, that's not to say that i'm sure any regulars will be mean to one another, but this chat's going to be open to anyone who registers, same as the forums, and there's a report button for the forums, so the chat may end up needing one too...
  • is there some way for the chat window to be taller? when the chat gets going, it's hard to keep up because so many people are talking at once, and it's hard to scroll up when each time someone sends something new, you get dragged back down to where you can see the newest stuff instead of what you were trying to look at up above, if that makes any sense. any way to help us keep up with what's been said before would be great.

definitely loving the chat so far, and will continue posting feedback as I notice things. thank you for this! :D

Listen I think you need to chill dude.You think people not washing their hands is the only reason people get ill?Germs are everywhere so unless you walk around in a sterile space suit your gonna come into contact with em' even if you were the only human around. And yes while it may sound harsh survival of the fittest is exactly the way the world works.Not my rules just the rules of Mother earth ,deal with it.

seriously, i don't think anyone else is gonna be able to top this until someone admits they don't wash their hands after dropping some kids off at the pool.

... will we see that in this thread?

any takers?

also, for longtimegamer and anyone else who has never done the '/me' thing, here's how it works in IRC (and some other chats, like WoW and stuff):

who cares? just be yourself, man... you like what you like, and Red vs. Blue is pretty funny. this is why labels are ridiculous... why try and shoehorn yourself into the label ('hardcore Nintendo fanboy') you've slapped upon yourself? it doesn't make any sense to deny yourself something you like just because you think people expect you to act a certain way. :/

AuthorRe: Early Adopters vs Hold-Outs
theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon

11,420. Posted:

by that definition, i'm usually a hold-out, mainly because (a) a lot of new gaming stuff comes out right at the holiday season, and I don't want to fight the holiday shoppers, (b) if it doesn't come out during the holiday season, with my luck there'll be some kind of shortage and people will still be fighting over them, which I still don't want to deal with, and (c) i'm generally broke and have to save up for things I want, so I can't get them as soon as they're on sale. if I'm going to 'early-adopt' something, it's gotta be something I really, really want and have known about for at least a few months in advance (to save money toward it). :3

The wireless router will have wired jacks just like your current router. Go look at them in a store. You'll see 5 jacks on the back. One is for connecting to your cable (or DSL) modem and the other four are for connecting to your computers.

i just checked mine, and you're absolutely right. i hadn't even thought about that; my husband's the IT-professional-in-training and he's the one who set up our network, not me, lol. so yes, if you still want to use wired connections, you'll be able to with your wireless router... just make sure it has the jacks you need. :3
