Nintendo DS Lite

From the impulse buy department, here’s a picture of my new Nintendo DS Lite:

New Super Mario Bros on Nintendo DS Lite

The designers of the New Super Mario Bros. found some cool ways to utilize the two screens. For instance, when Mario goes down a pipe, the game switches to the lower screen.


I got myself a copy of Tetris DS and discovered another cool feature: you can play online (via WiFi) without any monthly-fee baloney.

Tech Update:
The DS wouldn’t associate with my DIY Linux access point until I switched from WEP Open (insecure) to WEP Shared (even less secure). With MADWiFi, the required command is iwpriv ath0 authmode 2.
