    "Oh woe is me!"
    Said mucus as he opened his DS and tried to do a soft reset.
    "It's not working!"
    The struggle continued! mucus was getting frustrated and rest the power manually!
    The DS retorted by powering on nonchalantly.

    after a pause

    The R4 screen, this month's feature is Kirby, appears and mucus selects games.
    He scrolls down to the one of his choice and starts about to game.

    He noticies that a feature that uses the R button isn't working. He tries it again, but to no avail.
    mucus knew before it had happened, the good ol' ds was on the way out.

    He couldn't remember what it could've been, but he does remember that it's not been responding correctly for a while now.

    And so the story continues,
    mucus has a DS that can't "R" for anything.

    It's dying, but not dead.

    "Andrew Mclennan, CEO of U.K.-based Metaforic, has announced a new anti-piracy measure for flash linkers. Specifically engineered for ROMs, and not homebrew, this new bit of software can be injected into code and will cause the corruption of ROM files which are pre-patched before launching. The code is currently specifically targeted to the R4 patching routines, due to its popularity. Nintendo is behind this anti-piracy software 100% as are 6 leading third party NDS software publishers.

    It will remain to be seen what hackers can do with the anti-piracy measure when it begins to ship, injected into retail carts, as soon as December of this year. The code can be altered to change its signature for each retail cart, potentially preventing an automated fix from being developed.

    Metaforic’s goal is to “annoy the hackers” as much as possible. They admit that the solution is not fool proof but it should require a fresh hack on a per-ROM basis. Thus allowing software a longer shelf life before it is pirated."

    Damn I can't believe this one-two punch i'm getting.

    It's just so unfair!
    I must admit, it's my fault they are doing this though, they saw my ds is on the fritz(and i don't mean chess) and they said
    "AH HAH! now we've got him, we're going to make him buy a new ds and passme"
    they get the money from both of those anyway....

    oh man
