I've been browsing and reading your forums since before Christmas; until this point I haven't registered to due lack of a Wii and therefore lack of a reason to really post.
Anyhow, I finally snagged a Wii and a second pair of Wiimote/Chucks the other day (literally) at HMV in the local mall. Completely by chance actually, was in the mall scouting out new possible frames for glasses as I had just had my prescription checked.
Anyhow, I've been wanting to pick up the Wii since I first heard about it in Dec (yeah a little slow there missing the pre-release, I know ). After about half an hour of fussing with both my wireless router settings and my Wii connection settings I got the thing connected live. If anyone is at all curious about how I did this, I put a post on my LJ.
Right now, I only have the console, Wii Sports, second Wiimote/Nunchuck. Gotta save up more money to buy games.
Anyways, thanks for having the forums here. Looking forward to many more posts.
