Well, how's everyone doing? Sorry I haven't been around in a while. Been busy at school and at home. Just an update on what I've been doing lately:
-RMA'd my 640GB Sammy drive back to NewEgg for replacement for my laptop. Got that back so I've been backing up files and reinstalling and just doing some general "digital" organization that I've needed to do for a long time. Bah. It's more work than you'd think! Haha.
-Been f-ing around with an xbox360 that I bought from my friend. He bought a new slim model, which he said he bought because "it looked cool and he needed the hdd space". So I got his whole ancient one for $100. 20GB HDD, component cables, power brick, and console plus 2 wired controllers. I don't believe that he only bought the new one because it looks cooler. This POS has been freezing in games off and on for the past week. No RRoD, but just plain freezing (can't go to dash). Interesting. So I'm thinking of buying this
and then also finding some thermal pads or mosfets and just modding the hell out of it. My guess is that if it's not RRoDing, it's the RAM getting toasty, which would explain why it freezes in-game (usually during loading). I'm using the hard drive from my newer 250GB Elite system (the COD MW2 spec. edition one or whatever), and it works fine in that console, so I know it's not the HDD. All around, just interesting. I won't be trusting him with any other "purchases". There's no way this thing wasn't freezing on him, too. But, anyways.
My life in a nutshell. What's everyone been up to?
