Hello! I'm an asian lesbian that grew up on Nintendo. It's been fun in the pirating scene; I've used an adapter for the SNES to play Super Famicom games, one of the first clumsy as hell gameboy readers/writers, and using one of the gameboy advance ones where you had to fiddle with different save types to get it to work properly. I bought a DS when it first came out, and then graduated to the DS Lite when Pokemon Diamond/Pearl came out. I probably won't pick up the DSi...well, if my gf picks one up for me. I'm a hardware junkie as well. I have a Silver DS Lite, with shimmed black face buttons. (From my first DS Lite.) It runs on flashme'd firmware. I have used the R4 and the Acekard 2i on the DS Lite. I fix DS Lites too. I once fixed a busted white DS Lite (the power switch nub was gone), by gluing the tiniest bit of metal to it. I sold it back to the person for fifty bucks. I'm a Canadian, although occasionally, I'd go back to Hong Kong for new games and more fashions. I'm also in university, studying therapeutic recreation. It's a pain, and it's almost exam time! See you around!
