I don't really consider using a DS/i instead 'suffering', considering it can still do the most important thing (for me) that the 3DS can do — play the full library of existing DS games. The DSi even has the advantage of still being able to play all your DSiWare, lol.

again, you get used to it. personally i'm used to holding the system much closer to my face while playing (maybe five inches or so), so i'm having to remind myself to keep my 3DS held away from my face while messing around with the 3D stuff.

@moosa: the reasoning would be that we'd get a completely whole system at launch as opposed to one still missing key features. sounds like a normal expectation to me, really.

I particularly like The Offspring's Conspiracy of One

there were a couple good songs, like One Fine Day and Want You Bad, but other than that it was pretty weak IMO. I'd suggest picking up Smash (or either of their earlier albums) before CoO, really, and if he doesn't have Ixnay yet, i still think he needs to get that one first lol :3

from what i'm seeing, it is coming back — just wait 'til May.

that said, i do believe lunchmeats is the one to talk to if you're worried, geek-master. I'm assuming you know how to get in touch with him since you were a mod there, so please, take it up with him. :3

You said you had the system WITHOUT the update!! Obviously I now know you meant to say WITH the update, but typing the wrong thing will cause confusion.

calm down and read the post above yours, please.
@Retro: for what it's worth, I understood what you said just fine. :3

where in that article does it say to send it in? so far as i can see, all it says is to make sure you've got the latest update downloaded.

There is an existing thread for this here. The only things we know for sure are:

(a) it can happen on both aqua and black 3DSes, EU or NA, whether you've updated your system or not.
(b) it can happen completely at random — you can be playing a cartridge game (solo or wi-fi multiplayer), messing around with the preloaded apps, whatever.
(c) it can happen regardless of what type of security your network is using — WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.
(d) not all users have experienced an error yet (and i'm one of them).

Also, formatting your system is not proven to do anything. Stereoman, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd quit acting as if you've got all the answers, because you don't — you're just as clueless to the cause and/or prevention of all this as the rest of us. Thank you in advance.

Are you an Offspring fan? if so, Ixnay on the Hombre was as good if not better than Americana, and Splinter (the last album they put out before R&F,R&G) also had a few good songs on it — Spare Me the Details makes me lol every single time i hear it :3 Enema of the State by Blink182 was better than Take Off Your Pants and Jacket IMO, idk if you've listened to that or not yet.

as for bands other than the aforementioned, give NOFX a shot, they're punk and absolutely hilarious. If you want your hilarity rated R, Mindless Self Indulgence is a favorite of mine. If you're in the mood for something hip-hop-y, try Ratatat — 9 Beats is excellent, and there's no words involved. :3

there's so many hilarious moments, though. how the hell do i choose? D:

in terms of bestest South Park moments ever, i'd honestly have to go with the movie. i had the soundtrack as soon as it came out, i saw the movie three times in theaters. it was hilarious and magical all at once seeing it on the big screen like that, and having your friends and the rest of a packed theater roaring with laughter around you... it was just fun. :3

in terms of the TV show... i agree with The Fox's list (especially Good Times with Weapons, 'let's fighting love' is the best song ever~), plus the episode where Cartman went on a daytime talk show with his mom ("It's my hot body, I'll do what I want!"), Mecha-Streisand, the one where Cartman has his own theme park, and also that one with Cartman's parental revenge service (where he paints the walls in poo). Poor Butters, haha.

oh, and the Lord of the Rings ep was pretty damn good too. >:3

what do you mean by 'slightly loose'? if you mean that sometimes you'll have it mostly open and it'll pop down into the 'fully open' spot if you're moving around with it (that spot just before where you can push it open completely flat), that's how mine is too. my DSi is the same way.

there's a System Transfer option under the Settings, but when you tap it it displays a message saying something like 'that functionality will be added in a later Update' or whatev'. I'd assume that may have something to do with it.
