Hey guys

Im going o be more active now that exams are over. And on that note: I need a banner! Winner gets my everlasting gratitude lol. It can be anything you want just make it something you wouldn't mind showing your parents lol. And now for a hilarious story that happened ot me the day black ops came out.
I was in the middle of an online homework assignment and the itnernet in our building died. I called the Office of Information Technology or OIT to ask why and had the following conversation:
OIT: Hello OIT how can i help you?
Me: Yeah the internet here died during my homework assignment. How long till its back?
OIT: Oh yeah your like the 50th person to have this problem. Let me just check your building's status. Ok looks here liek you guys have used up your daily bandwidth cap
Me: We have a bandwith cap? how big is it?
OIT: Pretty big depending ont he day but usually around a TB or so.
Me: And we used all of it?!
OIT: Yeah that is wierd. Let me see usage. Wow fully 60% of it was used for Xbox Live.
Me: So i fail this assignment because of Activision?
OIT: Pretty much. it should be back tommorow.

I got an extension on the assignment because the majority of the campus lost internet. Thanks actvision

Minecraft is NOT rated E

or at least it shouldnt be. I was playing it this afternoon exploring around the biomes caves etc. i read that dungeons can be found if you pop on the sound so i did (up until now i had been playing with no sound because i couldnt be bothered :P) i walk into a cave and suddenly hear a hiss behind me. i let out a yell and whip around in my chair freaking out. This coninued for about 10 minutes with me wondering wtf was making that noise until i relized it was the game. (i have really good headphones+pandora was playing) I then tentivly creep around tyring to find it only to find a single spider :/ so i continued on (after trapping him in a block for when i can actually kill him. i play on SMP my own server) and lo when i am again least expecting it i hear a moaning gurgling sort of noise. bear it mind it was and is midnight. scariest sound i have ever heard ever. As of now i have no idea what made it and my roomate thinks im on LSD. so i continue digging and find some lava. so smart me i decide that i should make a portal to the nether so that i can travel to it fast. i light it and once again scream like a little girl in fear of the sheer doom eminating from the portal to my ears. Seriously this game is way too scary. im afraid. so very afraid.
my lava source for obsidian

as close as i am ever getting to that portal ever again. I put torches in the hope it would contain the noise. It didnt

join me so im not alone anymore.

Xbox 360 Mod (42 images)

Hey guys. Im going to be showing you my Xbox 360 console modification today. It took me a little under 3 hours to do mostly because i had no guides. But now thats changed! before you try and copy this or open your box at all please note the following:
Ok so here we go!
Required Materials:
  • Knife
  • Torx Screwdriver Set
  • Bobby pin
  • Toothpick
  • Xbox
  • Plexiglass
  • Edging
  • Spray Paint 
  • Double sided Tape
  • Dremmel or glass cutter
  • Saw
  • Super Glue to reattach feet
Ok so first assemble all of the materials.
Super glue bobby pin and torx driver

make sure you use a torx head. looks a bit like * <- that

This is the plexiglass and the edging

double sided sticky tape and knife

close up of edging

this is the site where i got the glass and the edging. make sure you get 360 edging

 Ok Now you have everything! Time to start opening up the xbox.
First turn your box upside down
next slowly pry off the faceplate. It should come off pretty easily

Look through the holes and you should see gray tabs that release the gray cover.

Push them in with the bobby pin while applying gentle upward pull on the gray cover

Keep going on alternate sides untill you get them all. You may have to remove one of the feet but you can glue them on later. Plus unless you want to paint them you should remove them too.

flip it over so that we can do the one where the HD goes

Put the screwdiver though this hole and try and lever up the tab. It will probably take a bit of fishing

Next pull uo on this end while you push more tabs though the vents.

Heres one of those tabs

On this one there is a tab behind the foot so just pry off the foot and save it

Now both gray things should be off.

lay it down and notice the 7 slot sin the back. 4 here

and 3 here.

use a toothpick to push them in till you hear a click and then hold them open with a screwdriver

This is honestly the most annoying part.

keep going

once you have all 7 and have them wedged ipen move to the front and open these tabs. pretty easy just pry.

Now you should see this. unscrew the ones at the corners and save the screws. they should be as long as the whole xbox.

these screws. Now the bottom half of the shell should drop away.

And Now its open! paint the shells them get ready to add a window.
First use the dremel to cut a hole. stop short of the vents and where it starts to curve

cut away some of the supports in the inside so that the glass will rest comfortably

give it some more paint to cover up the cut marks

paint the cut out bit or throw it out. whatever

that metal plate can be kept but i recommend removing it.

take your shell and get ready to cut the window

trace out the hole onto the glass

add some corners so that it will be able to go over the lip

use a straight edge. it works better

still using the straight edge begin to score the glass. Use a knife and score ALOT

once its pretty scored hit it lightly with the edge of a table under it. Line the table up with the score line and it should break easily enough.

next put the edging on the fram

let it dry if you used glue then simply reassemble attaching the glass to the shell with the tape. might be a tight fit but it works.
And ytour done! heres some pictures of mine

Thanks for reading! hit the stumble button :D
