    intro from canada

    hi. my name is bob, and i'm an alcoholic ----- just kidding... never really liked spamming a thread with introductions, but as it seems to be a requirement here, and i respect this community ---

    software engineer (28 years experience)
    gamer --- of course.

    giving shouts from the sucky urban country which has been all but excluded from purchasing technology from or using sites such as, with no package larger than standard post office supported dimensions sellable on ebay ---- Canada. We are the new 3rd world ---

    8 hour waits in the hospital
    no free drugs
    dental is $300+ / extraction --- up to $5000 for a full root canal procedure
    wages are 10 bucks/hr --- but rent for a 1 bedroom apt with a pest problem is 700-900/month
    taxes are 40% of wages + standard deductions of EPP, EI, CPP, and whatever other acronym + 13% on every purchase + recycling fees + food tax + entertainment tax ++++
    average job here gives approx 20 hours / work / week (so they can employ more people and our government can say that the unemployment rate is really low)
    1-5 year waiting lists for any serious medical operation --- some major operations are not covered -- no drugs are covered -- could literally be dead by the time they see you.
    doctors (general practitioners) are limited to how many patients they are allowed to take on, and how much money they are allowed to earn.
    taxes collected never go towards real problems.
    even though our dollar is stronger than the US right now, magazines are still 30% cheaper if bought in an american store (even if the magazine is Canadian made).
    our internet is capped and pay per use (read latest article on passed act from CRTC | Financial Post)
    Canada is Censored
    Our "peace" and "rights" are not protected -- they are fake -- False Allegiance and Oaths

    For those who love Canada --- look at the rest of the world. Canada is not what it used to be.

    Your Wii

    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.

    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates.

    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:

    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.
