No but I think I'm pretty consistent on keeping the tradition of reminding everyone and I hate to break a streak

(I wouldn't be surprised to see I missed a year or 2 though, I'm not checking)

I spent a bunch of time disassembling my DSi since the shoulder buttons haven't worked for years (but will start working again temporarily if I use the classic blow-into-them trick) to see if a bit of alcohol would clean them out enough to work again. It's not too difficult to get into it but it is a real hassle to get the last ribbon cable back in, and after all of that it did nothing. I can't even find anything about replacing them, and it's possible one or both of them is a single component that contains the card reader as well.

I replaced my OG 3DS shoulder buttons somewhat recently and it was a couple simple ribbon cable swaps but it seems like it might be more of an issue with the DSi.

It's rather weird watching raocow's newest LPs then going back and watching his TSRP LP from 2007. It's like two totally different people but it's not, funnily enough.

I just woke up from a dumb dream featuring a "cursed" Mario Romhack (or at least a creepy pasta hack). Every 13 or so deaths the game would cut to a weird 'prison' scene (used a mix of castle and ghost House assets with some kind of full moon/spotlight effect over the middle); Mario would be 'sitting' (sliding frame of animation) in the corner, next to chains and bones, with his eyes hidden, and a sequence of horribly off-key notes would play. Every time this scene came back, the sequence of notes would get longer and more distorted and the contrast between the dark prison and the light would get greater. It was remarkably unsettling, and I ended up turning off the small CRT tv I was playing it on when it happened a third time and walking away, but it left me perturbed nonetheless.

The game also had weird "aerial midpoints" which were angled and you had to cape fly around in a circle to activate - the secret exit wouldn't unlock without doing this with all of them in the stage.

I pulled apart my DSi again cause i saw someone online suggest you could fix the shoulder buttons by dunking the entire shoulder button switch in a bath of rubbing alcohol and then clicking it a bunch to clean out whatever is blocking contact, I guess. After all this I seem to have fixed the L button, but R is still inconsistent. I popped in a copy of Mega Man Starforce to test the shoulder buttons and after running around for a second in the overworld, I noticed that it's also kinda hard to run at diagonals, and I'm trying to figure out if the DSi's D-pad was just always like that or if mine is just old. Kinda feels like this whole thing might be a project not worth the time when I have a DS lite that works fine.

edit: actually after booting it up again, both buttons seem to be much more consistent now. D-pad still feels a little weird though. Maybe that needs cleaning too?

That actually sounds really cool, I'd like to see some of that implemented in a real hack.

Finally closed up The Mosts section. It's now in the archive. I'll keep the announcement deal up for another week in case people want easy access to look at the results, userbars, and all that.
