    Ok, here's how it goes, I ask a random question, anybody who answers that question right gets onto the winners list (for that specific question)

    The questions I ask are random, and might not even relate to the Wii, but a lot will be

    Tell what YOU think, if the person before you posts a different answer than you were going to put down, even if it sounds more correct than yours, put the answer you choose down, who knows they might be the one that is wrong, in other words, don't post what the person above you posted unless that is what you really think it is yourself

    Without further adoo, first question

    What is an IP address usually used for pinging yourself, known as the loopback adress?

    Correct, the loopback address is 127.0.0.1, I would have gone with anything from 127.0.0.1 to 127.255.255.255

    Anyway

    Its not anything emitting light waves. The light waves have to be of the IR wavelength.

    Anything that gives off white light. The WiiMote gives off redsensor kind of light, so you need white light to recieve the data. Eg candles.

    Wrong. The Wiimote doesn't give of any light. There isn't a such thing as redsensor light, and there is no visible light used for the Wiimote. Most lights will give off IR light as well as visible light which is why they will work in place of the sensor bar.

    correct, candles, well, anything putting off some sort of IR or similar light, but the answer I was looking for was candles

    dan99iel, I know you had "candles" in your post, and that is the correct answer, but the way you wrote it, the other information is wrong, so because of that, you didn't make it to the winners list, sorry, but good try:smilewinkgrin:

    Next question
    What is the order of the wires (color code) in a 568B CAT5 cable, from left to right? You can either say white or tip for the white/color wires

    Ok, I guess nobody knows, the answer was white (tip)/orange, orange, white (tip)/green, blue, white (tip)/blue, green, white (tip)/brown, brown

    So that would be 12345678

    Next Question:
    What browser can you use to access the Wii Shop Channel on your computer?

    Well, one got it right, well, i'm not too sure about Opera the the big one that can access the Wii Shop channel is Firefox, except you have to download a firefox plugin (I forgot what the plugin was called, but I have used it), if you know the address to the new releases page, I think you can see what just came out without having to turn on the Wii

    Next question:
    If you have a componet cable on your Wii, what special mode can be set on some games when you run them? (not all games have them, but some games like Super Mario Sunshine do)

    Hmm, and that one was easy too, the answer was progressive scan, in some games, you have the option to run 420p or 420i by either selecting yes or no yes/420p no/420i

    Next question:
    Is firmware software or hardware?

    firmware is neither software or hardware... it's FIRMWARE lol

    but... it's most likely going to be software because it's a program that tells the hardware what it needs to do (i.e. software that's embedded into the hardware)
