holy cow. you're a lot more restrained than me, lol — i'd'a asked her straight-up where she got off talking to me like that — i'm not your jellybean, sweetheart. wow.

you're right, though; i've had more than my share of that kind of 'parental-style' advice from people around that age myself because i didn't go to college, and the only thing that keeps me from blowing up sometimes is the fact that i can sit back and laugh because that's not how the real world works. we're taught in high school and by the media that scholarships, grants, just money in general grows on trees... it doesn't happen that way. and when life finally rears up and really bites 'em in the butt over something, they'll learn what all the rest of us had to learn too. the School of Hard Knocks provides the only education that really matters, IMO (besides kindergarten, anyway ;)).

ah well. we can only hope these kids eventually grow up and 'get it' without stumbling too hard, y'know? i know i said my own share of dumba** stuff and put my foot in my mouth many a time back when i was 20. maybe if you had spoken up and embarrassed her a little bit it would've accelerated the growing process... go for it next time someone pops off at you like that. it might help you feel better :3

... and then when you're in their position, you'll be the one with the 'dream job' and everyone else will be jealous of you. it's the way things go. i get that you're upset for whatever reason atm, but you have no idea what every single person on TV (or heck, standing around you when you go out) have gone through to get where they are today. they may come off as some kind of ideal, as if they stepped out of school and straight into that dream job you wish you were in right now, but there's a good chance they've had it just as bad (or worse!) than you.

and by sitting up there and talking nonsense, they're attempting to cement the idea that they're the fittest person for whatever job it is they're in at the moment. idk, i can't fault them for that kind of thing myself — obviously there are people who want to hear them flap their gums, just as many as for their opponents on those sorts of shows. it's all whatev' to me, lol.

@Arthedain: usually it'll be apparent in the packaging — was everything spelled correctly in the manual? when you hold the manual up to another known-legit manual, do the safety warnings all line up, same fonts, same image sizes and stuff? how's the cover, does it display all the appropriate symbols or is it wrong (does it have no Wi-Fi symbol when it should have one or vice versa, does it have the ratings certification from the right board in relation to the region it's supposed to be for, does the cover art match what it's supposed to be for that region, etc.).

there are less-apparent signs to look for, like paper and print quality (the counterfeit Partners in Time i wound up with, the manual and cover paper all had kind of an off smell to them in comparison to my legit, bought-new-from-store DS games), making sure the logos match (i believe i saw one image of a counterfeit on the internet where the shadow on the 'Nintendo DS' logo toward the spine of the box was wrong, pretty obvious when held up to a legit game), and of course the cart itself. this guide states:

FAKE NINTENDO DS GAMES The bottom left corner is rounded a little differently on the fake ones. Check the label...fake labels are put on by hand and off center or slanted slightly, authentic game labels are put on by machine and exact. You will also notice a difference in the quality of the art work and instruction booklet if one was included. If a case was included, it should have the NINTENDO logo inside the case to the right of the spot that holds the cartridge. The fake game cases are blank inside with no Nintendo logo.

this guide here has some images, and this one here also has some good points regarding the game serial number and stuff.

@Arthedain: neither of those games are DSi-enhanced. honestly, though, i haven't thought to try my own out-of-region games on my 3DS yet, so i can't say for absolute certain that i know for a fact they'll work. i'll pop 'em in when i get home and see how it goes down — they should work just fine, but we'll see i guess.

which games, Arthedain? if they're DSi-enhanced, they require a same-region DSi or 3DS, though they'll play on any DS system regardless of region. there's also a chance they could be counterfeit depending on where you purchased them from (a Hong Kong-based seller on eBay? damn near guaranteed to be counterfeit, lol).

guys, you're making this way harder than it needs to be.

I use Photobucket myself. Once you've signed up for an account and logged in, there's a big green button up at the top of the page that says 'upload now'... click that button.

once you've clicked it you're taken to a page that has you choose how you'd like to upload your images. it defaults to 'my computer' and '(your username)'s album'. since i'm assuming you guys are talking about images saved to your computer, just leave it there for now and click the big 'select photos and videos' button in the middle of the page.

a box will open allowing you to browse the contents of your computer so that you can find the image(s) you'd like to upload (holding control allows you to select multiple images if you have a few to upload at once from the same folder). click 'open' when you've got them selected, and the upload will begin automatically.

when the image is done uploading, you'll be shown a box telling you so. the option to 'view album' or 'upload more' will appear... when you're ready, just go ahead and 'view album'.

you'll be taken to a page titled '(username)'s album', and there you'll see all the images you've got uploaded so far. click one of them to be taken to a page where you can edit the image, add a title or description or tags, etc... to the right you'll see a 'share this' section, with buttons for twitter and facebook and the like. there's a little right-arrow link next to those buttons that says something like 'more options'... click it.

a popup box will appear to give you options. click the tab in the box for 'get link code'. for the purpose of the NL forums, you want the options listed under 'IMG for bulletin boards & forums' — if the image is of reasonable size, the full size option is fine, but if it's huge, go for the clickable thumbnail. just copy the text in the box you require and paste it into your post here at NL.

voila! you've posted an image! :3

I would try calling Nintendo, because jdarrell is right — if you can purchase the game on your DSi or 3DS (meaning you can access the internet with it already) you should be able to use any WFC functionality with it no problem. Contact info for Nintendo in your area can be found here. :3
