So I finally got my first game console since the Sega Genesis...sad I know, but being a Software Engineer and all around PC geek, I just knew that PC games were the best thing ever, and consoles would not last. Then this Christmas, my Mom comes to our place (wife and I, plus 20 month old son), and gives us a black wii (ok, mom still spoils her successful almost 40 year old son...it's sweet).
Bottom Line: I have been wrong for a LONG time! I found this site the day after Christmas, and have been reading the guides and other posts pretty much daily. I love to research, and I wanted to be sure I had enough knowledge in me before unlocking my console. It went flawlessly thanks to all of the reliable information here, THANK YOU WIIHACKS! I have now found a new "computer" to study and understand inside and out, and I have also found the 'kid inside' again...

HAHA!! I've got too many of my own to write for my Information Systems Master's degree as it is...but, I am happy to proof-read... :-)
I guess I should have clarified that I love to research my HOBBIES like fishing, camping, keeping up with new Marine Corps tactics/equipment (so much has changed since my days), PC stuff, and now Wii!
