Hey Bill! Been lurking here and listening to your podcasts for a while now, thanks for all you do! Wanted to ask a question, not sure if this has been touched on in any of the older episodes or discussed in other channels, but have you ever dealt with the issue that’s being referred to as joy-con drift? It’s where the joy-con analogue stick would start inputting a direction despite being in a neutral/idle position or continue inputting a direction after being let go. Pretty much all my friends with a Switch, including both Switches in my household had this problem start occuring after 1-3 months after using their console. Usually a spray or 2 of compressed air under the rubber flap will make it go away, but it’s always temporary. If you’ve dealt with this, maybe you’ve found a way to deal with it and figured out a more long-term solution?
