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.

Loved the article. Annoying sure but these things are funny gaming memories.

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.
