Since the first Nintendo game console came out in the 80's, I can recall everyone I know (myself included) blowing into the game cartridge and/or the Nintendo itself when something went wrong (freezing, etc.). What is the premise for doing this (I saw other people do it, and sometimes it seemed to work, so that's why I did, thinking maybe dustiness/debris was the issue...), and is there any legit evidence that this really fixes things?

Last Xmas I bought my sister a DS Lite. She got it mostly for Brain Training and loves puzzle games, but hates all others (she gave away the platform games I got her her). Any personal recommendations for a nice game I can get her this year that isn't Brain Training 2? Maybe a compilation of good high quality puzzles? If it helps, she's 40 yo, so not a kid.

I think Hurricane Gustav killed my Wii. I lost power during the storm for five days and now the Wii won't come on. The "standby" light doesn't even glow. [more inside]

Does anyone remember those old anti-Nintendo and anti-Sega commercials where they showed the same guy making 3 different responses? Where can I view that commercial, preferably the series? [more inside]

I was interested in making a flash animation that looks like an 8 bit nintendo game, and was wondering if there's an easy way to do 8 bit art?
