    Damnit! Xbox just got the dreaded E74. It was an Elite from January 2008 I think. To make matters worse, I can barely use the net due to some weird issue. Speedtest is showing 0.9Mbps. I should be getting about 30Mbps.

    Not happy!

    Now do I sell my 360 related stuff or try to replace the thing?

    Depends what you still have left to play. You can pick up an arcade for next to nothing these days (and probably soon to be even less when they cut it for the Wii's launch).

    Good point on the Wii. Might postpone any decision for a couple of months. Just get a HDMI equipped older version rather than plumping for a snazzy slim.

    Thanks.

    Is Jan 08 the manufacture date or when you bought it?

    AWWW YEAH! I just got all 8 badges in Johto Region on SoulSilver, a bit of a rough fight with the Gym Leader Clair but I beat her first try. I realize that none of the casual games I play today give me this feeling of the first 2 words of my post. Right when I beat her I hopped up off the couch, jumped around and danced a bit :p. Keep in mind its 2AM and everyone is asleep, I wouldn't do such a thing in front of people. Anyway.
    It could be the nostalgic feeling, but I don't remember playing Pokemon Gold/Silver from when I was younger. Like, at all-I know I played it, I have my cartridges in my Gameboy cartridge book both with my names on the back, but I don't remember beating the gym leaders or who my team was or anything. (And the cartridges have lost the save progress)
    Ever since I watched this YouTube video (Almost 19 minutes long FYI):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm3bs4Gjjuo
    I wanted to recapture that feeling again or find it because I don't remember it. I was playing before but didn't have any real motivation, but once my mom started playing hers, I got it, now I'm farther than her by a badge. Its awesome, haven't felt like this from a video game in awhile.
    Also, I'm not a real PokeManiac, I've just been enjoying Pokemon a lot when I joined here. The last game in the franchise I played was Diamond/Pearl, which I don't know if I finished it or not.

    Rant over.

    If you turn your broadband on and off too much BT set your profile to a lower speed limit (under 1GB in my experience). This is irrespective of your broadband provider. It may correct itself within a few hours.

    Its called a BRAS profile. The ISP will continue lowering your speed until they find one that it can successfully maintain a connection at.

    Funnily enough I have to reduce my 'broadband' upload speed until I can succesfully disconnect the BRAS.

    Wait... what?

    Spoke to mine the other day who said an ADSL 2 router would increase the speed almost double.

    Truth?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Well I've not tried ADSL 2, but I imagine 2 of anything would get me 'there' in half the time.

    Need to vent before I drive a very long distance and twist someone's head off.

    This weekend my missus is visiting her Auntie for a sort of going away party... sadly her Auntie has terminal cancer, and doesn't have very long left. As you might imagine, she's very upset about this and it's a party that's fraught with emotions.

    She just phoned me in tears, and I assumed it was because she just couldn't handle saying goodbye to her auntie... no, apparently a friend of her sister's has just been having a go at her because she's not in contact with her sister any more. They haven't spoken in about 6 months (for good reasons) and apparently this stupid cunt (fuck knows why she is even there) thought it was a good idea to lay into my missus.

    I'm so fucking angry I can hardly type straight. I mean yeah, that's going to solve the fucking problem. Do something retarded, don't apologise, find yourself ostracised and then send your friend to have a go... because that's going to fix everything.

    The fucking mentality of some people.

    There may or may not be a time and a place to have a go at someone like that (probably not if you're not even directly involved), but that's so far from the right time to do it, it's scary.

    The only thing to do in this situation is to call the sister and drop a bomb on her. Dont even give her chance to draw breath.

    No signal up there apparently. Sent a text, but I doubt she'll get it until she gets home (travelling back today) meaning it'll be just a touch late and a little pointless.

    Did the sister send her friend or did the friend do this of their own accord?

    It is absolutely unacceptable to use the term 'not on my watch', unless you are a policeman/security gaurd/ soldier or someone actually performing said function.

    FCUTA!

    Apparently my missus's dad asked the friend to say something. Idiot.

    That aside... YAY, I just got a court summons for speeding. Fucking wonderful.

    I saw the van, didn't worry too much though because I was doing only a touch over 40. Turns out it was a goddamn 30 road. I had a drive up there today to look and there's a 100m section of road that's 30 between two 40 zones. :(

    FML.

    I fucking hate going to the hairdressers. Bored shitless. They take forever. But I'm a major grump when it gets this long.

    Doesn't help when they're fucking blasting out shitty trance music.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
