    Hi all! So it turns out I signed up here 14 years ago. Crazy huh! I can't remember what for. I joined up to post my appreciation for a hack that allows one to add downloaded games to a DSi's main menu. Something I wanted to do since I spotted two gorgeous Pokemon themed DSi's. I couldn't decide which to get so I bought both :) this was during the 3DS era too so it was a bit silly... then again I also picked up a Famicom themed Gameboy Micro, plus a baby blue and a pink one. I think I have a silver one somewhere too.....

    I'm a software engineer. I own my own house where I live with my partner, our kids, our dog, plus two rabbits. I bought some land opposite my parents house so I could build there and be near them/care for them.

    I enjoy retro games a lot having amassed a sizeable library of games, peripherals, and consoles. I was once a game dev and had some success with my own titles. These days I act as a freelance director of sorts, moving from studio to studio helping them release their stuff.

    I drive a Spitfire MK4 and a Nissan Figaro (I like my vintage cars :) ). I like to read though not as much as I like, I'm a rifle shooting and archery coach as well as being pretty proficient in them two sports too. I enjoy bouldering but not climbing, I swim, run 2 miles a night before bed, hike, lift weights. Enjoy cooking and baking too. I'm not sure what else to say :)

    First console was a NES and Spectrum (same day present). Fave games are Sonic 2, Turrican 1+2, Mario Odyssey, Smash Bros, any Pokemon. Cheerio!
