Goodbye Xbox

Hello new Xbox.

My Xbox 360 finally died. After a week or so of it locking up on movies and games (and even sometimes on the initial startup screen) more and more frequently, it finally just gave up last night. I got the “blinking red lights of doom.” Apparently that’s a “generic hardware failure.” Thankfully I got the warranty, so I was able to exchange it for a new one – which works beautifully.

I think the old xbox was heartbroken because when I was out visiting Ruth, I played her Wii and decided that I needed to save up for one…

In other news, WordPress 2.2 is out and I really need to upgrade. I installed it locally on my computer and restored the database from my website to see if it would go smoothly. Unfortunately I can’t seem to be able to test my template because it keeps redirecting to my live website instead of showing me the local install. So I have no idea how it’s going to turn out or what it’s going to look like after the upgrade.

I’ll be busy Monday night, but want to upgrade my site Tuesday. If all goes smoothly, it shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. If all does not go well, my site could look very strange for a long while (meaning, until I finish up some projects to free up some time to fix whatever went wrong).

Wish me luck.
