Just thought I should post a picture from our last LAN party...
As mentioned in my blog yesterday I finished setting up Rolly's new bed.
It turned out to have a fairly noticeable crack in one of the ends. We had purchase As-is and final sale saving $150 bucks. But choose the bed marked "packaging" and checked carefully the content of the damaged box.

Hey, Q-Bert, get on it, will ya?
Update: picture added.
Bad News: My Xbox 360 Core system failed last night. This is my second Core system failure in exactly the same way. Unfortunately not with the 3 red lights of death (free warranty replacement) but with a frozen display with artifacts all over.

OK, when you invoke Image Assist, and you select an image, make sure you keep "Not a URL" and then select a size to display. It will select thumbnail by default, which might not be what you wish.

"Why doesn't this work?!?!"
