Want to access Nintendo Zone without actually getting near one?

Posted February 3rd, 2012 at 04:52 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

I don't know how it works for PAL and JP systems, but for those who own a NA system:
  1. Go to your router settings
  2. Configure it so that its SSID is attwifi
  3. Set its security to none
  4. If haven't done so, access eShop using a supported region
  5. Launch Nintendo Zone Viewer

BAM!

Also you can now watch Nintendo Video in that viewer, too IP locking bypasses!

A CSS Workshop blog series

Now that I have a good idea of how CSS works, I wonder whether I should start off a CSS Workshop blog series.

Ideas? Comments? What would you like to see in the series?

I might do things a little bit simplified, though.

This clearly does not work with Internet Explorer older than 10.


This works in every other browser AND Internet Explorer versions 4-9.


This will only work on Internet Explorer versions 4-9.


I guess there's almost always a workaround for a lot of things, huh? Maybe I can put what I just learned to style my club's first post further.

Seems like vBulletin 3 does user agent sniffing...

...and serve up different content to users of Internet Explorer. Invalid content for Internet Explorer 8 and newer.

I went into this forum and also Victory Road as usual, but I was having fun messing around with my user agent string. Probably to test how sites react to my spoofed user agent string...

Spoiler:

This is how Victory Road, a vBulletin 3 forum, looks before I changed the user agent...
