The "Ring of Light" on my 360 flashed 3/4ths all in red and i freaked out a bit. I tried it the next morning and it was fine... :confused: :confused: :confused:

11 Medals!

A flashing ring can be very worrying Scott.

The omly good thing is that if it happens again and turns out to be the "Red Ring of Death", microsoft will fix it for free!

I finally took the plunge and got the balls up to hack my Wii! It was kind of a pain in the ass, but I did it! I still haven't gotten all the bugs out of it though. The coolest thing I've done is downloaded a media player so that I can watch movies off of a USB drive.

I haven't gotten burned games to work on it yet but I put some old N64 games on my SD card and got them to play.

I also picked up an app that turns my Wii remote into a level and one that is a metronome, and an internet browser.

It sucks that Nintendo sucks so bad that people had to spend thousands of man hours hacking these damn things to get them to do the same basic stuff that sony and microsoft give you standard. Harumph!

If they made a film of Bioshock Timothy Dalton would play a good Andrew Ryan. He's that creepy kind of bloke.

I found the Oblivion GOTY version at a pawn shop for $10. Is the extra material good enough that i should grab it?

I have indeed, very clever! The story suddenly clicks into place ... though it is hell to get to him.
