Figured I'd give m'self a little intro, as the rules and regs suggested.
First name Steve, last name Bruce, fairly interchangeable as it goes. After creeping around here a while and successfully soft modding the ol' Wii in about 3 hours (BIG thanks to mauifrog for the 4.3 tutorial, laid all them ducks in a row for us). Man, was that easier than the XBOX was some 4 years ago, took me a month to glean all the info needed to run some freakin' emulators (I long for the good old days).
My main reasoning behind this is to be able to play backups and leave the O.G. copies in a safe place, I.E. out of my boy's reach as he likes to rub all the dvds he can find in the sand. There seems to be a laundry list of capabilities the wii has that I had no idea about, and I look forward to being able to make it work like I want it to, and possibly being able to help a few others out along the way.
