My X-Box 360 died on me this morning, with the three red lights of death blaring away.

Except.... while on the phone to the call centre, it resurrected itself. I just know the Cylons are behind this somehow....

EDIT : It died. AGAIN.

(Notes to self, cos I'll lose the piece of paper they're written on otherwise : call centre number - 0800 587 1102, incident number 1067875001. Plus, I hate having to spell my whole name over the phone each and every time. K for kilo, O for oscar....)

June 10th update
Spoke to lady, reported fault. New reference number : 106 966 88 83. UPS courier will be coming in next 5 days to collect 360, which needs hard drive stripped off it.

June 29th
New reference number : 107 149 3654. On the occasion of having to ring them up on 0800 587 1102 again, to ask them how to change the payment options on my X-Box Live. As in they'd canceled my X-Live because the original bank account the debit was coming out of was closed, but I couldn't get into Account Management to change my details because they'd canceled my X-Live. Catch-22 at its finest.

Teen Nabbed for Naked MySpace Photos

Cops: Boy posted explicit shots of ex-girlfriend as way of "venting"

MAY 21--Meet Alex Phillips. The Wisconsin teenager is facing felony child pornography charges for allegedly posting naked photos of his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend on his MySpace page. When contacted by police about the two images, Phillips, 17, balked at removing the pictures of the girl. Warned that he could face jail for publishing images of the minor, Phillips told an investigator, "____ that, I am keeping them up," according to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in Lacrosse County Circuit Court. Phillips, pictured in the below mug shot, told cops that he posted the photos last week "because he was venting." The cell phone camera photos had been taken by the girl, who provided them to Phillips. Along with posting the photos, Phillips added explicit captions like, "Yo, U see how big her hole is! Its from me!" While claiming that his goal was not to harm the girl, Phillips acknowledged that, "he probably should not have done this," according to the May 20 court filing. Along with the child porn count, Phillips was charged with defamation and sexual exploitation of a child.
