Hi all :)
Recently bought myself a white Wii used for £30 with controllers and games, right pleased with my self :p
I knew about soft-modding as I did it to my old Xbox and right after playing Mario Bro's I was onto it.
Surfed this place quite a few times from Google searches for various things and thought id register and show my thanks for the tutorials and other information id found here which helped allot with the modding of my Wii.
I currently have Bootmii as boot2, USBloader GX with forwarder, Wii64 with forwarder (N64 was my very first console it holds a special place :p ) Genesis Plus GX with forwarder and various utility apps, like file explorers and WAD managers.
I've got two main hobby's first is my car I perform all the work to it from simple Disc's and pads up to full suspension re-builds and head gaskets, learnt it all my self through trial and error, my first car was a Fiat so there were many opportunities to fix things. The next which im trying to peruse as a career is Digital audio Signal Processing. I've been big into my music im a drummer, the one that hangs around with musicians, and started my University course with the idea of perusing live sound engineering. My course is almost over with my graduation on the 5th of July and it was my course that taught me about DSP. Ive since been playing allot with various pic boards and creating VST plugins in Windows. My final year project was a VST plugin that automatically detects and cuts audio feedback with notch filters, generally speaking it was a success with a few bug's here and there.
Id love to start having a play with Wii creating my own app's and themes and things. I hope this place still has a strong community as most of the threads I found the last posts were quite a few years old.
I guess attention is moving onto the WiiU now.
Well that's me, hi every body :D

Please be aware that newer Wii's Do not play back up disc from the disc drive. Your only option will be to load from the Usb port.Usb Loading is recommeded as you will not have any lag and if your lazy like me,you won't have to get up to change the Disc.:)
