My Nintendo DS is breaking.

The two joints that hold the two halves of the unit together have cracked, and it no longer holds to any one position on its own - it's very floppy.  In fact, today, one of those two joints has snapped in a second location, so not only is it rotating freely around the X axis, it has a little mobility rotating around the Z axis as well.

This thing isn't gonna last too much longer.  I just hope it lasts long enough for me to get the funds together to replace it.  Which could be as early as December.  (At which point, if I actually DO have the funds together - which doesn't seem likely - I get to decide if I want to replace this system that I know I like, or try to pick up the Sony or Nintendo next-generation-home-gaming-system, both of which should be out by then, and both of which I irrationally want without having tried either.)

OK, I'm done whining for the moment.  End of Line.

Oh wait, one more moment of whinage:  Eight hours of Boards review classes tomorrow, then the Boards exams on Friday and Saturday of next week.  EEEEEEK!!!!

...that link has another link inside it that points to another problem I'm also having -- I wonder if I could get away with having them replace the whole darn thing because a single pixel is green on my LCD screen?

Worth trying.....
