    I just found a news posted a couple hours ago that Nintendo announced a severe bug found in the firmware 3.0 while using internet channel. It will suddenly dim the screen and may freeze. I am not sure if only 3.0J is affected.

    Oh boy, I just clicked update about an hour ago. I hope nothing goes wrong. Thanks for the warning, I'll be purposely trying to get this bug to show.

    So it just freezes in the internet channel? That is the only problem? I already updated, but if that is all it does then I don't need to worry since I hardly use the internet channel and a freeze wouldn't be too big of a deal anyway.

    Oh boy that's not good. Also, does anyone else notice the stupid clock not centered with the date? It just doesn't fit with the "niceness" of the interface.

    To be honest, that clock was a bit of a waste. They could at least give an off/on function. It's not there when the menu first starts, it just fades in.

    Just don't touch the reset button while you are there.
