Modified

After throwing together the DVD drive from one dead XBOX and the motherboard and hard drive of another I finally have a working unit.

Now with the XFCE3 mod chip soldered in I can do pretty much anything I want with it. It’s pretty cool, as I now have EvolutionX as my dashboard instead of the standard green Microsoft one. It allows me to FTP in to my XBOX and add files such as homebrew applications and games.

The real goal here is to make it into a media center where I can play MPEG 1,2,4 / DivX / etc, DVDs and everything else you can think of. More on that later.

Torrents Down

Torrentspy, The Pirate Bay… My friend has just informed me they are both down.

The Pirate Bay says it is “database problems”.

How strange. Maybe some cracker has a vendetta against piracy? *shrug* It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.

To those who would try…

This website is custom built line-by-line by yours truly.

I have not implemented any BBCode in the ShoutOuts box. Nor will injecting HTML into the ShoutOuts box work.

Have a nice day, and please stop wasting everyone’s time by posting garbage characters.

[EDIT]

I’ve moved on from maintaining the code for this mammoth project myself. I’m way too busy these days so I’m using WordPress instead. Please, if you find a bug – just let me know rather than trashing my site. 😉

White hat hackers are 10x more ‘elite’ than black hats anyway. They are typically good both in the PC world and in the real world. 😉

Oh yeah…

… before I forget to mention this, I got dumped last monday.

It sucked, but you’ve just got to move on.

Yeah…

A bad move by Telus

Telus is typically my favourite cell phone service provider. I have never been to an area where I have not had coverage. I enjoy using Pay and Talk because that way I can regulate how much I spend on my phone service. As well, all of their services are easy to access.

They are not fairly priced, however.

As well, recently I added a feature to my account at a cost of $30 which is labelled “Extended Evenings and Weekends.”

Now, usually an “Evenings and Weekends” plan lasts all evening between the stated times and all day for each of the two days of the weekend, Saturday and Sunday.

This plan does not work this way. It is simply an Evenings plan, no weekends. I feel suckered as that $30 only covers evening calling when I was mislead to believe it covered weekends as well. What a bunch of ripoff artists. I’m really upset now as this plan used to be a good one and they seem to have changed it for the worst.

I hate you Telus! >:(
