Damn, just as I was adding in a more CA tone to my post you reply.

Now I just need to steal some cash for a memory stick. I don't have a credit card so I can't order off any fancy web deals with coupons to get a 20GB stick for 5 cents.

Yeah but I dropped one of my PSPs (luckily within 7 days of buying it so I returned it for a new one) and got 7 dead pixels right away. Then I turned it on again later and there were more. I dropped my DS a bunch of times and nothing. Now I'm afraid to move my PSP.

You never see it when it's on because it's backlit and there's a pattern that's pretty unnoticable on the touch screen but it also diffuses light so it makes scratches less apparent, and after owning a regular DS for as long as it's existed, and a DS lite for the same, I only have 2 scratches on the classic that are small and none on the lite, everything so far has wiped away. I use the stylus or my fingers or fingernails and play a bunch of games on each, wifey gets the classic.

You can at least do it, which makes it a viable MP3 player. I use a Cowon A2 as my MP3 player so if I can fit that in my pocket I can fit the DS Lite in. It's not that big though. Other than a wallet, that, and keys, what do you need? Fuck a cell phone, if I want to talk to your ass then I'll get at you somehow. I don't need cancer. Some guy at my work has a grey patch on his head right where you put a cell phone on. It's an exact rectangle.

Do you have a PSP-2000? Or a new battery? I wonder how long you can keep it without using it before fucking up your battery. Weird that it happened on both my PSPs.

I did it, but aside from playing a few emus I haven't really looked into it. Is there anything really that great? One of my PSPs is hacked and one isn't, maybe I need a different memory card than the 32MB to make pandora work, I've tried everything.

Well I have a bunch, but I don't really see any system sellers.

I inherited one, and bought the first one just because I need to own every Wipeout game ever.

I just can't get the firmware loading part to work. I put in the pandora's battery, and I've tried making the memory stick about 8 times but no matter what it won't load off it. Some people say it's cause you need a memory stick pro duo, and the 32MB is just a memory stick duo. I've got 1.50 stuff to work fine, but my other PSP is 3.90 or something.
Dunno if that's your sig but "this address cannot be used for browsing".
