I have about 100 pictures to add to the site (mostly better versions of current pics, but some new additions as well). I've also decided to add all the Nintendo G&W games to help make this site a complete, one-stop resource for all handhelds. I'll be uploading a new version of FAQ soon as well, hopefully I'll get some new stuff other than just new games (like more info on repairing certain types, etc...). That's the plan anyway, we'll see if I actually pull it off in a timely manner... :)

Things are kind of slowing down around here... After last month's huge update, I cleared out my 'pictures to add' directory, and I just haven't been finding a lot of new stuff to add in... I guess that's good in a way, maybe this site is actually starting to be a complete information archive... But don't worry, I'm still here and adding things as I find them. Hopefully I'll get my scanner set up again and start adding more manuals again as well.
