INFO TECHNOLOGY: I've been thinking about it for a while, but I've finally decided to buy a flash-memory cartridge and link cable for the awesome retro Game Boy Advance my awesome retro boyfriend bought me.
In short, these little devices allow you to put your own software on your Game Boy Advance. The setup is pretty simple. You need a cable to connect your Game Boy Advance to your computer, and a flash-memory cartridge. (I think that's what the above graphic is trying to say. Software + Link Cable + Flash Memory Card = Japanese Lady Happy Time.) They can be used to play ill-gotten games, but Game Boy games are pretty reasonably priced, so that's not my intent. (Make no mistake however, I am still a dirty, dirty pirate.) I just want to play around with modding and old game boy games that aren't easy to procure nowadays.
What surprised me about all this is that you can now get flash-memory cartridges up to 1 Gig! That will hold a whole lot of early Game Boy games. In fact, it should hold them all.
