    You do play FDS and Sega CD games, right? That is the only reason why I would get a NEW 3DS.

    That extra power allows you to play Famicom Disk System games flawlessly.

    I was thinking exactly that. Most of the world reads "1/12/2015" as "December 1st", except a few countries that only try to be original and not convenient, like the USA and countries that are too close to them to be able to avoid that format (Belize (and that one is still smart enough to also use D/M/Y), Micronesia)... and the Zimbabwe too, I don't have any explanation for that one.

    id downgrade now before 10.40 comes out cause if you softbrick then your either stuck with a brick or updating to 10.40 and not having kennel access any more

    Well in my opinion, both YMD and DMY formats are good (and use - or / I don't care). Because YMD is convenient to get things in the chronological order (like sorting photos that were named according to the time they were taken, or if someone travels in time and wants to know the date, well telling him the year first helps him better than telling him that we're the 6th, the 6th of what, when?). And DMY is convenient I'd say in everyday life, when you're supposed to know the month and year, so you only specifiy the day, or maybe the month when it's not obvious and the year last when really needed. Like "we'll meet on the 7th". Or "on 7/02" if it wasn't obvious it was February. And rarely "on 7/02/2017" because that's in a long time and you don't often make appointments for next year, that's why it isn't so useful to put year first when it's often irrelevant.

    It's different in a conversation because the context implies the meaning. As you say, when we say "we'll meet on the 7th", the implication is that you mean the 7th day of the current month (edit - or the next month if the date in the current month has already passed the number you said...). Because we don't refer to months by number in spoken language, there is no confusion here (you wouldn't say "my birthday is in 07", you'd say "July"), and certainly in English we say "in" not "on" when referring to the year ("in 2017" not "on 2017"). All of these unspoken rules make it clear what you mean. But in written form there is more ambiguity, especially when the timescale is uncertain and the date is written only numerically, which is why a standardised format is needed :)

    So let me get this straight:

    To be safe, Tubehax DNS on sysNAND (9.2) emuNAND (10.3) or both?

    Also, is there any danger on updating emuNAND to 10.4 while being on CFW? If i recall correctly RXTools ceased its development.

    So once 10.4 comes out it's better to wait for KTM rather than risking a brick?

    Damn, good thing i got my downgrade down on time. What if KTM does the same stuff as sysUpdater and forces you to Recovery Mode after 10.4 releases.... lmao rip

    I suggest everyone to keep trying to downgrade until 10.4 releases. Then after that, wait for KTM. You know, increase your chances of getting your sysNAND to 9.2. But hey, dont hardbrick your console now...

    Yeah, because if you get a softbrick after 10.4 comes out, Recovery Mode will automatically update you to 10.4 which is probably 99.99% sure to have memchunkhax2 patched. This is assuming KTM is superb at its purpose. If it still has issues with softbricking then i dont know what will happen after 10.4 releases.

    That also means my 3DSes are going to start gradually rising back up in value. Im sure i could flip a MH4U N3DSXL for more than $500 (its scalper price) since its on 9.2.

    Then it would be better to have a hardmod installed before doing anything so you can backup your 10.3 sysnand. Then if downgrade bricks, you can restore to 10.3 using the hardmod instead of recovery mode.

    Big endian kind of makes sense (order of significance, like how we branch through menu's and find stuff in books etc.) but others disagree due to culture and stuff. My idea? Just spell out the month abbreviation and order then really doesn't matter and nobody's confused and pissy.
