Bootin' up my DS

Around September 2007, for some bizarre reason, my DS Lite stopped working. I don't know why (I suspect overheating) but it stopped. This ruined a lot of plans for me. I didn't get Diamond like I intended to and put Pokemon gaming on hiatus until I fixed the DS.

Unfortunately, school work and other circumstances caused me to extend the hiatus until I got some free time. However, around June last year, my dad bought me a copy of Pokemon Platinum. I didn't even ask him to - he just knew that I liked the Pokemon games series. Only then did I start looking at fixing my DS. Even though I was more aware of it, I still didn't have too much free time and, unfortunately, my DS fell into misuse once again and my Platinum was kept on a shelf, unopened.

Today, after not getting any homework in the week, I decided to try and fix the DS. I tinkered with it - tried different methods and finally succeeded in fixing it. So I opened Platinum, put it in and started playing. So far, I'm on route 202. More good news came though because, about a month ago, my dad fixed up a wireless router for the family to use and I managed to connect it to my DS which means I can play online for the first time. Now all I need is a gym badge.

    My black DS is the same way, it died for, like, 7 months. I play my sister's pink DS lite now. D;

    I'm trading in my black DS Lite sometime this week, I've never had that problem though. :\

    The only problem I had was with my sister's Platinum, her DS nor mines could read it. O_o; It still doesn't work either.
