Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Shame on you, Nintendo

Published: Saturday 2009-10-31.

My Wii thought it was time for me to install an update today, so I did. Not that I know what improvements it contained, but it did contain a major change for the worse – it uninstalled Homebrew Channel, a program I have installed on my Wii to be able to play home-made games. Apparently they have found new vulnerabilities in the new version, so it shouldn’t be difficult to reinstall, but it is still irritating that Nintendo is trying to stop me from playing my LucasArts games any longer.

True, Homebrew Channel is not something officially licensed by Nintendo, but they they cannot have any right to just remove the program from my machine like that?

Shame on you, Nintendo.

Update: The updated version was easy to re-install, so now I have my Homebrew Channel back, but it is still not very nice of Nintendo to remove it for me.

Tråkigt. Å andra sidan hände samma sak för några år sedan när jag gjorde en apt-get update på min Debian-installation hemma. Den plockade också bort installerad programvara som inte längre hörde hemma under Debians licensregler. Det slutade med att jag i frustration lät bli att spela Linux i drygt ett år.
