In Topic: How Nintendo almost ruined Christmas

You got that straight bro! Awesome indeed.. Shaking in yer'boots awesome!


I've learned years ago to not always rely on modern electronics as the centerpoint & 1st choice in creating a whiz-bang moment. And parents would do well to heed that advice. These electronic things can be great secondary things if you can get them working. Usually there's setups, accounts, and updates and all sorts of do this, this, and this, and perquisites, adapters, and special cables, and even other settings on the TV that have to be dealt with first.

Mmm.. the young ones need to learn patience with tech products just like the rest of us. The damned thing don't work? The damned thing don't work.. It is what it is.


When I got my Apple II I had no idea I needed an RF modulator. And no one told us either. I had to wait a whole day. A WHOLE DAY! ..before I could do anything with it. I didn't sit there bawling like a spoiled brat. I read the manuals, and looked at the pictures, and actually learned something. And I was 6 years old at the time!

Wow you are just so frigging awesome  :P Clearly you should teach parenting courses. 


A parent simply wants a fun and enjoyable Christmas for his daughter GET THE PITCHFORKS !!!!!!!!!!!   :mad:

No, that's the thread to complain about such things (or at least to explain things).

Ah upon looking closer it seems you are correct! My apologies, I misunderstood the purpose of that thread.

Thank you, for policing the thread. I give you an honorary badge and gun.....

...for your efforts. :)


Policing? Hardly, I was just pointing out something that judging from your last response I assumed you had missed since you seemed to be going on as if the OP still had an issue. Excuse the hell out of me. You can state an opinion based on observation, someone else does it and suddenly they are "policing" the thread, give me a friggin break.
