I FINALLY escaped the video-game scene a few weeks ago. My xbox kicked the bucket… hard. Over some time I was able to ascertain that the cause of it’s rather catastrophic failure was a direct result of dirty power. I live in a small town where the local power is routed over questionable wiring. As a result there are a LOT of brownouts, blackouts, and power surges. Tech here drops like flies in seasons!

I finally concluded the power was to blame when two Hard drives, a NAS and my Archos all died within days of my xbox… so yeah… dirty power.

I was free though. finally able to breathe. Don’t get me wrong, boredom was kicking in hard but ultimately the end of time draining video games was close!

Then Renfeld had to go and buy another xbox… thanks man… love the replacement xbox man… now I can go back to the sole-crushing, mind-numbing, anger-enduing, anti-social video-games… I love you man… I really, really hate you… damn it… I’m going to play some firefight now…

I have a coworker/musician whom is convinced that internet piracy is going to spell the end of music. period.

Sorry Alan, but the Internet will do no such thing. Music will always exist as it did ten thousand years ago, however; the puss filled boils on the backside of society (musicians who play for the money) will finally fall from their pedestals, back to the place they belong: the court jester. and music will finally be able to flourish as it should.

Okay, my computer friends I have a question about restoring favorites in an internet browser. Can it be dome after a system restore? If so, how is it done?

Any help would be appreciated!Thanks!

It is a patition to netflix, requesting Linux and/or firefox support for their instant watch platform.

now I know that both of you (Yes, I am aware that my reader base numbers well into the… theres two of you) don’t use Linux. but I KNOW renfeld uses Firefox… and sweetleslie… you SHOULD be using Firefox.

but to be honest, this is more for me… I am stuck using windows in a VM until netflix finally gives me Linux support… please sign… it won’t really affect you if you don’t need it but it helps me out…

Well, I finally pulled my head out of my ass today… or should I say, MICROSOFT pulled my head out of my ass…

I woke up this morning ready for another great day of movie watching and gaming, courtesy of my xbox 360. But my day was cut short by the Red Ring Of Death (or RROD). Wht is the RROD you ask? well, on the xbox there is a circle of lights on the front used mainly to display player connections and power… but when things go wrong (and with Microsoft, things WILL go wrong) these lights turn red in an ominous partial circle indicating your XBOX is now useless.

I’m so angry right now… I don’t even want to finish this post…

basically… Microsoft sucks. I am now selling ALL my microsoft crap, I swear to never buy another Microsoft product as long as I live. Of all the products I own nothing I have worked with has been more unstable, or less reliable than microsoft. why does this company still exist with such substandard quality control?!?
