    I waited from midnight to 8am for Wal-Mart to open. It seems like Wal-Mart wasn't told how to handle launch day, becuase experiences camping there are mixed. Some Wal-Marts seem to have let people rush the store, some of them (like the one I waited outside of) were smart and handed out tickets or kept a list.

    Anyway, I was out there from midnight, and at around 4, The Parents started joinging us xHxCx Gamers outside. Except they lined up at the front door, hoping to weasel their way in before us. However, they weren't aware that there was a list made up, and that it didn't matter whether they were at the front of the store or sitting in their car. Anyway, most of them ended up getting a Wii anyway, but I heard a mother (who got there at about 7) say "forget this!" and stomp off when she found out she didn't get one. As if the people who sat in the cold outsnight don't deserve one as much as this SUV driving b*tch.

    Serves her right!

    I was in line at Future Shop at 4am, and was 17 in line. They opened at 10am but the manager came out around 8am to give out tickets, so I waited about 6 hrs. However, Best Buy and Walmart who were close by opened at 8am. So we could see the people going into the store to purchase their Wii while we waited in the cold

    The thing is, as I stated in another post, Best Buy had about 4 Wii's 3 days after, so if I only waited I could've got some sleep on Sat nite. But then again it did take me 2 days to get connected, so I wouldn't have figured out how to connect manual unti Fri.

    Ah what a glorious day that friday was..
    first, being forced to miss school to wait for the package to come
    then the package arriving - right on time - at 9:00am
    then, to top it all off, i called Nintendo customer service to get the internet working, and it just so happened that Nintendo, that big awsome company, needed MY help. It ended up being a problem on their side, but they noticed, and fixed it because of me

    Perhaps the best friday ever??
