Respect for the Aged Day in Japan is not typically a cash cow for gamemaker Nintendo Co. Ltd., but this year a bump in sales of its DS portable game machines was proof enough that electronic games are attracting a broader range of players.
Word of the Day
- A small wooded valley; a dell.
- The protecting weather-shed built around the entrance to a house.
- The roofed-over space between the kitchen and the sleeping-quarters in a logging-camp, commonly used as a storeroom.
The word 'dingle' comes from Middle English dell, hollow.
