Nice read and very funny.

Blowing in those NES cartridges was just classic.

Lol, that brings back memories and also using paper or a rubber eraser to clean the contacts of the cartridges.

Holy crap! I forgot all about the rubber eraser method! haha

Man I remember the recommended "Hold Reset While Powering Off Your NES To Avoid Data Corruption." for games like Final Fantasy and Zelda.

NES cart says "blow me", I say "ok", and neither of us feels dirty.

did anyone blowed the SNES cartridge connector instead of the cartridge? When I used it after a long time, it was so full of dust the cartridge didnt work even after blowing it.
