'isopropyl alcohol' is plain old rubbing alcohol. it's not the name that counts so much as the percentage of actual alcohol in the mix. lower percentages will have more water in them (so that they evaporate slower), but that extra water will hurt your contacts.

windex and lower-percentage alcohol may leave deposits on your contacts, leaving you worse off than you were before. i believe it's 91% alcohol or higher that they recommend for cleaning metal contacts.

@WaltzElf: since you clearly understood what he was saying enough to respond to it, making fun of his spelling ability is not necessary. :|

@JumpMad: Waltz is somewhat correct in that the Official Nintendo Seal meant nothing in terms of the content of a game and how 'good' it was. All that little gold seal meant was that the publishers of said game had gone through the proper licensing process with Nintendo (and in theory, that Nintendo had made sure the game would actually work on an NES).

@Waltz: you're more than welcome to contact his publisher*, of course, and let them know how you feel, but you're probably preaching to the choir at the moment. i'm sure Hugo would love to see his games released in all regions.
* provided he's going through the same publisher for this project as he did with Flipper :3

it feels that CV is in his most vulnerable state in the series, seeing as he goes down a level after every hit. Yet he is also the most powerful he's ever been. I guess that's what anger does to you.

this is why i love the B.T series -- everyone has their own way of interpreting its elements. i hadn't even thought of it that way before. :3

also, Giga mode is definitely good times.

oh awesome, they put Ponyo on Instant? hells yeah! anyway, my recommendations:

Movies

Bronson -- the story of Charles Bronson, "the most violent prisoner in Britain". Most of the movie is based on fact, and the man playing Bronson himself did an amazing job (almost matches the images of the man perfectly) but i was amazed at how full of hilarity it was. If you like dry British humor, give it a shot.
Ichi -- a blind swordswoman in old Japan travels to find her long-lost mentor. features some seriously awesome fighting. the only drawback is that we couldn't figure out how to get it subtitled as opposed to dubbed, though the dub isn't all that bad.
The Commitments -- i don't really know how to describe it... this kid in Ireland wants to start a band, holds auditions and chooses people and stuff, and then it follows them from their start to when they finally split. it was really a great movie, and the music was surprisingly amazing.
Up -- Pixar outdid themselves again with another wonderful story, and of course the visuals to match. i never did see it in theaters but finally had the chance recently thanks to Netflix... an excellent movie, really tugs at the heartstrings.

TV

FarScape -- if you like cheesy mid-90's SciFi Channel fare, this is for you. this astronaut goes to outer space to perform an experimental flight and winds up halfway across the galaxy. he hooks up with a group of fugitive prisoners on their living ship and they kinda go along trying to stay away from their former captors and having adventures and the dude wants to go home. good series, but the theme music is weird :3
Battlestar Galactica (TOS) -- cheesy late-70's sci-fi fare at its best! good times, good times. heavy on the moralism sometimes, but it's just got that old-school charm that drew me in :3
Soap -- another older show, this one a big fat parody of cheesy soap operas and their drama~ it is good times.
