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…
