    I was at work a couple of days ago... I believe it was Saturday, and a customer wanted to purchase a PSP.
    So, I head on over, and he's inspecting one of the open box PSP's (open box = item was returned). I ask him if he needs a hand, and as he's inspecting it, he tells me all about how it's got the right motherboard, and he goes on to inspect what bios the thing's running under.

    I laugh, and as the sale progresses, I tell him that I won't even give him the speech on extended warranties - he's going to flash his PSP.
    We laugh, and as we head to the front desk, I begin to explain to him that it's rather humorous that he's so openly discussing flashing PSP's and other systems, and as the conversation progresses, I mention Gbatemp.

    Much to my suprise, this guy knows ALL about Gbatemp, and has nothing but praise for it - supposedly he's a member too!

    Daaamn it's a small world!

    Happy trails.

    If you work in some electronics store, bound to happen some day...

    Well, provided that you seem nice enough in the person's eyes to talk to about emulation and all that [​IMG]

    i.e. Not an @$$ that would make a big deal about how flashing and playing "backups" are wrong, etc.

    The funny thing is... I'm not sure who he was!
    Haha! He didn't tell me his username, nor did I share mine! How unfortunate.

    Either way, I'm sure he'll see this eventually - I hope he does, at least.
    I'm kinda antsy about posting my workplace & name, as I work at a place where piracy/flashing/carting, etc., etc. is all frowned upon and has gotten people fired in the past. [​IMG]

    Besides, I've been a member here at Gbatemp for... longer than I can remember. Apparently 3 and a half years. I want to meet up with some more people from my area!

    Happy trails.

    You dont have to worry about posting your work place if you dont want to.

    Some people are just more open to it, in fact, make a big ol post about it when they first got hired (jumpy [​IMG])
