I was going to go to bed, but then I decided to turn the computer on to check my email. Usually when I say this I have the intention of just checking my email - but end up checking for updates on every social networking site I regularly visit.
Alas, I haven't checked my email yet, but did find my way to Opera Community and decided I wanted to change the background image on my blog. I also fixed the side-bar opacity for Mozilla Firefox users - because it randomly stopped working.
The question now is; do I got to bed, or open this can of Dr Pepper and pack of Cadbury Fingers?
Cheers to all those who wished me luck, etc. Code's offices are really cool, very swish. I recognised two people in there because they used to work at With; so they said hi in the time I was there. In terms of the the interview, it went alright, I suppose. There were a few times where I probably could've presented myself better - but whatever, I got through it. One thing that was a bit crap was that the disc I'd took to showcase my work on didn't work. But luckily, I had a backup online.
I got to send some more work through today. And now, I guess it's just a case of sitting and waiting.
So, onto the main topic; and that would be about towels. Towels... and Xbox 360s.
If you're a videogames fan (if you're not a gaming fan, don't switch off - because this is interesting), and follow the gaming news, you may have seen at the start of this month reports detailing of how to fix your Xbox 360 should it not start up and show the three red lights of doom. As Gamestyle reports you should do the following:
At first, I thought this was just a bit of a laugh... but Gamestyle has a MySpace (which I happen to run; please be our friend). So far, there's been a total of 6 people who have all told Gamestyle that their Xbox 360 has died on them, and so I've taken the opportunity to divert their attention to the appropriate news post.
Gamestyle on How to fix a dead Xbox 360
- DON'T PANIC.
- Grab your trusty towel.
- Wrap the Xbox 360 in it. Turn it on for 15 minutes or so.
- Remove Towel. Ding! You're done.
Amazingly, FIVE out of six have said that this actually does work! One of those five had said that whilst it did work, he could swear his picture quality is poorer than it was before (?) - but at least the 360 is working again.
So, if you, or any one of your friends has an Xbox 360 die on them; you know what to do.
