    The world's first message board post made from a Wii

    So here is the most geekiest thing that you can do... hook a USB keyboard to your Wii (it does work!) and then use the built in Opera browser to post to Micechat!! =)

    S'Okay, someone will do it from a "jailbroke" iPod Touch at a HotSpot...

    Gee, there are a lot of other uber-geeky ways I could one-up that... I wonder if my Texas Instruments TI99-4a has a web browser - Besides the PEB and all the accessories, I have a half dozen consoles, one should work...

    (Then I could play "Hunt the Wumpus".)

    Boot up my PC-XT (MS-DOS 6.22) and find where the modem went...

    Or if I had a TRS-80 Model 100... Or a "Presto" internet appliance (glorified HP Printer with a modem)...

    Doesn't have to be jailbroken. A friend of mine posted on another board I visit from her husband's iTouch a few weeks ago. He just finally jailbroke it this week.

    Re: The world's first message board post made from a Wii

    We used our Wii during the Pirates premiere webcast.

    Had the video feed on the Wii (and therefore on the TV) then had both laptops going with each of us on MiceChat (well, breaking micechat) with the live commentary.

    It was awesome.
