    Long time lurker, finally had some questions to ask =)

    I've been reading WiiHacks for what seems like years now for the great guides and resources. I just recently needed to post a question for the first time and got a quick answer. They suggested I introduce myself, so here I am! =)

    I'm running a hard modded and soft modded Wii... I started with the hard mod back when the hard mod was all there was. Eventually I got tired of ripping the discs to back them up just to turn around and burn them to play... so I installed the softmod. I suppose the only advantage to the hard mod now is that I can rip a backup disc to my Wii HDD.

    Other than that... I feel like I'm severely utilizing the homebrew functionality of the Wii (I really only use it to launch USB Loader GX) so if you've got a favorite Homebrew app, however off the wall, give it a shout out here! =)
