DS encryption and Portland DS MultiplayDS Encryption: DarkFader's excellent new blog (see right column links list) mentions a few new tidbits about encryption on the Nintendo DS.

It goes without saying that DarkFader is now reverse engineering the setup and is optimistic about some workarounds...

Show up and support your local multiplay organizer. Bring all your games and arrive with a full battery and a powerful thirst. In the words of Abe "Grandpa" Simpson whilst supporting a 1960's superbowl broadcast: "If we don't support this thing, it might not make it...."
