Well, it was seventeen days, and not seven days, after having seen Brimtown post a picture of the Red Ring of Death, but nonetheless, the Ring has gotten me.
I downloaded that new mini-golf arcade game to try it out. Got the the second hole before my world came to a crashing halt.
So, I had my first encounter with XBox support. Might I say that "Max" is kinda worthless? I think he just gives you something to do while you wait for a real person. My real person was Eugene, and he was very helpful. I'm still under warranty, so he's sending me a <STRIKE>pine</STRIKE> box to put my 360 in and send it back.
I'm gonna be going through some serious withdrawal, though. Is there some kind of support group for people who have lost an XBox? =P
