Hi, and welcome to wiihacks.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly,search before asking questions. Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums, or you could be sent to the reading room (if you want to know what that is, search.), or even banned.
We have some new wifi competitions in the planning stage at the moment that you might want to consider joining (they may need to be payed for, but its still fun ). you could also Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name, and access to the donater forums, and have a chance to get other items, like Ntorrents Invites.
We also have an irc chatroom on irc://irc.uicn.net/wiihacks (if you know how to use it it can be marvellous). Please read the irc rules before joining. Hope too see you there!
I hope you have a great time at wiihacks, and that i see you around!
