* N64: 1,000pts = $ 10.00

So, since Nintendo's support is TOTALLY down, I was wondering if any other Wii owners have been able to connect.

My wireless network has NO problems handling the xbox, the 360 an da multitude of computers, so I doubt it is my just gets stuck on the "test" section.

Anyone else have this issue?

I love the Wii but every time i see that interface it feels like they think everyone is two. Does anyone that has one know if there are skins, it would be great to give that clean interface a little more mature or professional feel.
They were smart to use the point because it allows you to use cards purchased at real stores instead of credit cards that many of the nintendo users won't be old enough to have. It also leads to the possibility to find them for cheaper sometimes like the MSpts have on occasion and the conversion is simply just removing the decimal place which is easy for anyone to do in there head.
