There you go again: Nintendo 3DS

September 5, 2021 at 8 P.M. Eastern Time

It's taken me a while to return to posting. This is Labor Day weekend, and I thought I'd get back into the routine of working: something I haven't been able to do for a while because of physical health and living situation crises.

Aside from not doing much work for the past year, I was also not playing 3DS games. Because of Maryland M.T.A. rides breaking half of the screens I use to be productive, I need to afford a screen replacement for the 3DS, my Nexus 5, my Raspberry Pi, and my iPhone.

Now that I found a pretty good diet and repeatable (lack of) exercise routine to avoid a heart attack, the next step is to try to gain some light employment here in the area so I'm not without a place to stay.

Along with posting an updated website theme, I thought I'd post another video production to my web site as I begin to consolidate my internet presences and prepare to write software for a more formal blog server.

What would you do if you and your friends went big time into backing colon three as being the next big emoticon, only to find it integrated into the naming and marketing campaign of a mass-market video game machine a few years later? Between that and the emoji cartel taking over the world with proprietary emoticons, it's taken me about a decade to get to the point of researching this branding mystery. At least it's something to do. (Note: if foreign text distracts you, remember my lesson about the obfuscator. Seems it's a actually a diffuser.)
