  • XboxFriends for the Desktop v1.1.0.70 (early beta)

    I'm looking for a few people to test XboxFriends as thoroughly as they can before I release it publicly.  The release is very behind since I had to make it a priority to obfuscate the code to protect one of the newest features (which was a requirement for XboxFriends to work continuously). If interested, you can download the .zip formatted ...

  • Xbox 360 or PC Gaming lag???... Take a look at this...

    I was experiencing a bit of lag while playing DOA4, so did some research.  What I found is this link that measures your actual travel time performance (instead of generic ping) utilizing Quake III type of traffic.  This test demonstrates how their StreamEngine QoS technology works and what type of results you could get as a result.  ...

  • SiN Episodes, NDA's and a Preview

    As I talked about back in December, I got a chance to play an early version of SiN Episodes but since I am under NDA (non-disclosure agreement) I couldn't really talk much about the game.  Well, the game was demonstrated at CES 2006 and GameSpy has the scoop.  Rather than repeat what they discuss, go there to find out more.  Toward ...

  • Xbox Live and MSN Messenger

    It stinks... please fix it! OK, I know that's being a bit harsh, but hang with me just a moment.  Prior to the relaunch, after selecting the “tab” on the left Xbox, you'd be shown an HTML page that had two “tabs” at the top of it.  Selecting the second tab (can't remember what it was called) would allow you ...

  • OK, this is, well, ummm, nifty... yeah... that's as good of a description as anything else.

    DualBrainIFRAME> This is the new Gamertag Card feature available with the Xbox.com relauch of My Xbox.  Basically, you can place an IFrame chunk into your blog, website, forums signature or whatever and wherever you feel the need.  I suppose after the Xbox 360 launch it will be more meaningful, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to get ...

  • Here's your chance to laugh your *ss off at me...

    The .NET Rocks road show was here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area a couple of days ago.  After the show, they did some interviews with the local crowd and I was hanging out with no real intention of being interviewed.  Of course, that didn't work out exactly that way and I did end up having to sit in front of the mic.  It ended up ...

  • OK, still mad at the Xbox.com folks, but...

    ... definitely not at the Xbox 360 team and third party developers.  If you haven't (or even have) had a chance to see some of the trailers and game footage for games coming for the Xbox 360, here's your chance to see them in HD WMV!  Be sure to view the Dead or Alive one... WOW!  And for those who have played in some of our ...

  • Perfect example of what *NOT* to do... (Xbox)

    For those that know me, I rarely speak badly of Microsoft.  To the point that people think that I never speak ill and that I think that “Microsoft's sh*t don't stink.“  Well, here goes... OK, last week Xbox subscribers received an email stating that the Xbox service (and Xbox.com) would be down on the 24th to upgrade ...

  • Does it mean success when you start getting hate mail?

    Obviously you can't please everyone all the time and, at some point, some of those people might start sending you what equates to hate mail.  After close to 10,000 people using XboxFriends, I've received what is basically hate mail and I have to tell you it's very disheartening.  I don't make any money off of XboxFriends.  It takes ...

  • XboxFriends -> Open Source?

    After over a year of working on this project, I'm finding that the growth of it is beginning to be a bit more than one person can handle alone.  I really believe strongly in what XboxFriends could offer to extend the Xbox Live experience; however, since it's something that I can only dedicate a finite amount of time too, I really need to ...
