    I've honestly given up on using my joycons. The drift has gotten so bad I can't move my characters to the right. I only use the pro controller now.

    I feel the same way about the tooth brush in my bath room, the book shelf in my bed room, and the dish washer next to my cup board and counter top. It's like every one is crazy except you and me, Meto Meto!

    But seriously, compound nouns are often formed when the first part is a modifier. In the examples I give, they're nouns that modify another noun. A toothbrush isn't a tooth. It's a brush, and tooth is telling you what kind of brush it is.

    Same thing with coronavirus. It's not a "corona and its virus", whatever that means. Corona comes from the Latin word for crown, and is describing its shape when viewed as a 2D image under an electron microscope according to Wikipedia.

    I don't know where they do repairs, but I briefly worked for Nintendo of America in 1990 in Redmond, WA. Their headquarters were a short drive from that senior care facility in Kirkland where 24 have already died from COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). There aren't too many businesses open in Washington state right now. A "print preview" for the rest of the country.

    Am I the only one thinking it's creepy that they were still open in the first place?

    Okay, the virus arrived in the US with a bit of a delay, but jeez... It's not like they're providing a crucial aspect of society. :angry:

    That's gotta suck if you are stuck at home and want to play but cannot cause your Nintendo device is broken.

    I have kinda forgotten that Nintendo offers repair services. I usually have all my stuff hacked so I would never consider sending my stuff in.
    Good on them for closing for a while.

    Hahahaha obviously. One of the greediest and evil companies, with the most saintly image and the most rabid fans out there. Bar apple, obviously.

    I've been lucky over the last year that my JoyCons haven't been experiencing any drift. Of course now that I mention it, and the repair centers are closed, they're going to start drifting immediately.

    So what you're telling me is. We're all going to start drifting from side to side, and uncontrollably move in a direction until we force ourselves to stop?
