Nigmabox Rundown (7/29-8/04) Natalie Bought A Switch Part 2!

So remember how I said that I purchased an audio mixer for my Switch?  Yeah, that was a dumb idea, because as it turns out I could just have the audio from my Switch go into my computer via the microphone port and have that play back to me, but then I had to confront the horrors of ground loops, which ultimately led me to buying an isolator.  All so I could most comfortably use the Switch, which is a nifty enough system, except for some weird oversights. So far it is just minor things like, why do I need to hold down the physical power button on the system and then select an option to turn the system off opposed to simply using a menu?  Or why can’t I move around my game library or change the size of the icons.
