Red Ring of Death towel trick

The Xbox 360 video game console is subject to a number of technical problems and failures that can render it unusable. Many of the issues can be identified by a series of red lights flashing on the face of the console; the three flashing red lights (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death" or "RRoD")

The xbox lights have  many different meanings. Here is a small diagram.



If you have a Xbox360 which currently is flickering 3 red lights try this

Wrap your 360 in a towel (completely covered), turned on the system for about 10 minutes or more (not too long), turned it off, then back on again and your system should worked again!

Many people tried it and it worked !

Favorite Child Hood Games

For my next post I'd like some input. Whats your favorite childhood game. If its something I liked as a kid ill write up something. I personally liked Ocarina of time and Majoras mask from the Zelda series.
Maybe this will bring back some memories.

If you collected all the masks in the game this was when your hard work paid off. I remember getting goose bumps here.

Xbox Kinect





Kinect was launched in North America on November 4, 2010. In a nutshell Kinect is Microsoft's version of the Nintendo Wii. The coolest thing about it though is your body becomes the remote. The Kinect is completly remote free. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller, through a natural user interface using gestures, spoken commands, or presented objects and images.






 

Theres a good amount of games available as well. Check out http://kinectgamestore.com/ for a list.
