### choosing your personal state
Card10 comes with an app to set your [personal state](/ps). As with the nickname, enter the menu
by pressing the POWER button briefly. This time, select the `personal_state.py` app with the POWER button,
and navigate to your state with the LEFT and RIGHT buttons. Unlike the other apps, the state of the personal
state LED will remain blinking and glowing as you set it in the app.
### USB storage
Your card10 can function similar to a USB stick, if you start it in _USB storage mode_. You can use this mode to upload _configuration files_ and _micropython scripts_. To enter _USB storage mode_, first switch off your card10 with a long press of the POWER button. Next, hold down the RIGHT button and the POWER button, until your display shows the text "USB activated. Ready.".

### setting your nickname

Now look for an app called 'nickname.py', select it by pressing the SELECT button.
If you have successfully uploaded a `nickname.txt` file, your nickname will now show up on the display.
You can also upload a `nickname.json` file instead, to get some more options.
Have a look at the [hatchery](https://badge.team/projects/card10_nickname) for more options of the app.
### activate BLE
Initially, BLE is disabled for privacy reasons. If you want to use it, you have to activate it first.
* Via the menu: Select the ble.py from the menu and press the SELECT button to enable BLE. The board will restart with activated BLE. Deactivation can be done via the same app.
* Manually: Start the card10 in _USB storage mode_ and add a file `ble.txt` with (exactly) the content `active=true` then reset the board.
