@RWP: ah, i see. well, what kind of monitor do you have for your computer? perhaps you can use it as a replacement for an older CRT model instead? or perhaps you can use it as a second TV in your home instead of using it to replace your primary?

either way, hey, free TV. that SDTV's gonna go sometime, may as well throw the new one into a closet if you don't plan on using it for now, lol.

you don't want an HDTV? i don't understand; do you just not have any use for it or something? or are you trying to say that you can't accept a gift of something that expensive from the person involved?

i think we all have, lol. it's the thought that counts, after all, so just accept it graciously and then set it aside. never know when even things you don't want now will come in handy later on down the line :3

Chile is highly vulnerable to earthquakes as it is situated on the Pacific "Rim of Fire", on the edge of the Pacific and South American plates.

i'd say in this case, that's what's going on.

Probably not. DS games are limited to the capabilities of the DS phat/lite systems, while Bomberman Blitz is a DSiWare title, made for the DSi, which is why you've been able to play it online. If you're talking about Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, it's a definite no, but whether HG/SS is designed with some wiggle room for DSi users remains to be seen (and from what i was able to find via goodle, the answer is no).

@jangonov: on the Wii Shop there's the 'Account Activity' area where you can see everything you've bought and stuff, but for DSiWare, you'll have to go through what you've got downloaded or saved to your SD card and tally everything up the hard way. :/

@Sean: if you notice, when you attempt to shift certain games over to the SD card (Robot Rescue, for one; i know there are others, though i can't remember which ones off the top of my head), it'll tell you that some of the save data cannot be transferred and ask you if it's still OK to copy it over. out of curiosity (and because i didn't really care about that game), i copied it and then deleted it from my DSi, and then when i re-copied it on to the DSi afterward, all the levels i had previously beaten and unlocked were no longer available for play. i was back at square one. Nintendo really needs to get on top of an SD card solution for the DSi before too many games that act this way are released; i don't like the idea of losing everything i've unlocked like that :(

@percent: DSiWare can't be transferred between systems, and unlike WiiWare saves, DSiWare saves aren't separate files from the games themselves. if they are forced to replace my DSi instead of repairing it, i won't be able to re-copy all my backed up DSiWare from the SD card to the new system (he said i'll be able to redownload it from the DSi Shop, of course, but that'd just put fresh copies of everything on my DSi with no save or high score info). :/
