    Middle finger pointer

    Does anyone else miss the old middle finger pointer that used to be on the HBC? Way back when I first hacked my Wii whenever I went into the HBC instead of the normal index finger pointer we all have I used to get the middle finger. If I'm not mistaken it had to do with cIOS being installed or something along those lines. I know it's been removed from the HBC because of people complaining and it's not exactly the most family friendly gesture but I miss it none the less!

    I didn't even notice at first. One day I was in the HBC doing something and my wife asked me why the pointer was flipping me off and not pointing. I did a double take on my pointer and sure enough she was right. I laughed so hard I thought I cracked a rib. But at some point in my updating it just sadly disappeared. I wonder if I can bring it back by theming the HBC? I haven't played around creating themes for the HBC yet.

    At the time my oldest wasn't as proficient at the Wii as she is now so she never really spent time in the HBC. But now it's a different story. I swear she could probably hack a Wii on her own at 7. For example she knows to change cIOS within the USB loader to the appropriate slots to get games working if they blackscreen/freeze/whatever. It seems like some people who post on here don't even know how to do that. My 5 YO isn't quite there but she's catching up. She can at least power the Wii up and navigate all of the menus to launch a game. They are in the HBC all the time for our emulators and stuff so it may be a bad idea.
