Anybody with a wii here?

Post by Mullog » Sun Jul 08, 2007 6:28 pm

(forget the jokes - they have all been told and laughed at)

Do any of you people own a Nintendo Wii? I got mine a few months ago and its wonderful! I just finished the new Zelda game the other day - it's one of the better games I ever played!

Anyway. If any of you have a wii it would be fun to add you to my buddies list. Then my Mii (in-game-character, look at my avatar) could come visiting. :)

My wii id is 6659 1978 2432 7275. What is yours?

Tell your dad that he can play the old games from the Nintendo (nes) and the Super Nintendo and he will buy you one immediately!

Scared by a childrens book? :D I wouldn't have expected that from you Sal. The avatar looks like me actually. A bit more hairy though. So that must mean that I would look scary to you. Think of that next time you think of attacking me! :twisted:

@ Mullog

Nintendo :shock: Credit me with some taste and intelligence please. While you where button pushing I was programming my 128k Spectrum. Never had a SNES or Sega. They were/are NAFF (<-- Polite)
Now WHY did it do THAT!

@Mullog: Cant go online due to the chip. I need to upgrade the firmware in it and I dont have the energy to do so. Some games (Paper...eeehh something Mario) tries to connect and block the Wii if it finds any contraband in it. Hence I havent connected it.

@S.F.: I got my work to pay for the illigal chip as well. The receipt I sent in said "ModChip" and I said it had to do with the wirering inside a sweeper. My bosses are like 50+ so they dont have a clue about either Wii or any ModChips. :)

***This is an official theft of this thread. Consider it stolen***

About the workplace misconduct S.F mentioned. I have two new "pranks" to add to that list.

One is this guy in a different division (Nilfisk-Alto) who thinks he is some sort of king and tries to boss people around. He left his computer on during lunch just before this summer and I accidently installed PCAnywhere and hid it in a rootfolder. Unless he chills after summer I will take over his PC and download nice pictures of whatnot on it and then perhaps drop a line or two to our sysop. My prank will naturally be discovered and he will be free of doubt but I belive that the point has been made...or? :)

Now this next one is doubtful if I will follow through but my biggest competitor in our local market is Kärcher. Lucky for me they have a bunch of jocks as salespeople and none of them has spent more time then necessary in front of a TFT approved screen. I will attend a sort of fair or Expo or what you call it in August and I know that they dump their Laptops behind a Roll-up in their spot of the Expo and then they head for the bar. Now, I have a nugget of surprice named 007 Spy Software that I might deploy in the bosses laptop. That way I would get basically everything I need in order to stay ahead.

My moral will probably stop me here but hey, the politicians do this all the time. Why cant I have some fun??? :?

Genitive means belonging to. It is English. It does not mean what Raw thinks it does...

That is as may be kor but it is not SIMPLE English. If its a word that means 'belongs to' cant he just say that? We aren't all degree qualified academic types :x

Or you could ask your daughter. I first did genative, accusative and friends in Year 8 German. (Yes, English teachers suck at doing grammar over here. They leave it to the foreign language lot.) I'm sure Dragonette will know all about it soon enough. (Then she'll wish she didn't, but that's another story...)
