Xbox Users Group ahead of the curve again.

So, I posted about the new features that the Xbox team premiered today in the “My Xbox” portion of Within hours, XUG was already able to successfully integrate the new add friend feature into their gamercards. You can see it over to the right (you can add me too with that).

Edit: Unfortunetly, CS 1.1 wont let me put the image map on my sidebar to be displayed.

Are you a silver member, going on live for the first time?

Well, join up with an Xbox Live Ambassador.

I will be taking part in this free weekend as an Xbox Live ambassador. I will be playing for a couple of hours each day, and will be showing some silver members around, so they can get the hang of everythign and see XBL in its glory.

Please feel free to add me to your friends list. I will be accepting silvers first, then gold members. If for any chance it says my friends list is full, just contact me.

I just watched C-Span

Yes, I am 19, and I just watched CSpan.  Is something wrong with me?  No…Mark Cuban was on.

I truly like the ideas of this man.  He has a similar mentality to me.  The way I see him, is that he says what he wants to say, and nothing less.  That is the way, I was always brought up, and will always live my life.  Yes…I am not in the same situation he is, financially, so down the road I will need to watch my words, but truly that is the way I would love to be.

Mark, I am happy to announce that I am about 75% sure that I will be getting Verizon FiOS in my house (Internet, TV and Phone), this summer.  Now, many don’t know…but HDNet is part of the channel lineup.  A good buddy of mine, and former MVP, loves this channel, and he is a big HD freak.  He is my go-to HD guy.

Couple of hours with the March Vista Build.

So…I installed last night with no problems (Thanks again Brandon for the mounting directions/application!).  I spent a couple of hours on it this morning.  And right off the bat I noticed a couple of things.

  1. The performance has gone up alot.  Atleast on my hardware

  2. The sidebar has this freaky glitch…I reported it, and supplied a screen shot, but not sure why it does it (havent seen others report it yet though).

  3. My drivers cause a slow start up…I guess, they arent all supported yet.

  4. Some programs cause a slow shut down.  I think that occured even with just Windows apps (like apps in vista) running.

  5. I am still in love with the sidebar.

Over the next couple of weeks, I should be able to spend more time with it.  You can see the vista sidebar freakiness in my photos.

The Community is Really Looking Foward to Texas Hold Em.

I posted the 2 pictures I took of the game a couple of days ago…and I have been watching the traffic.  A TON of traffic from XBLarcade.

But…while that is great…I have watched the 2 or 3 forums that I see hits coming from, and…the community is really excited for this game.  The popularity of the game, and the fact that it will be free, is REALLY getting the community excited.

Cant wait for it to release!
