  • Let the countdown to having absolutely positively no life outside of the house begin...

    Halo 2 has officially gone gold... 29 days and counting...

  • XboxFriends and ASP.NET vs. WinForms

    Spent the weekend trudging through ASP.NET working on bringing some of the features of the XboxFriends desktop application to the browser.  Currently there are only two people using the new version of the software [don't ask, it's not ready just yet ;-)] to help populate the server with some useful data.  Now that this data exists, I'm ...

  • Why is it that Europe seems to get all the Xbox Love????

    OK, first, the wizard I just spoke about... it's for the UK/Ireland fans.  Why isn't it targeting the US?  Second, a notice just came in that announced that they are going to draw nine Xbox Live members, fly them and a friend to Seattle to tour Bungie and play Halo 2... guess what?  It looks like it only a UK event as ...

  • Halo 2 - Done!!!!!

    Well the announcement is in... Halo 2 is completed.  I soooooooooo can't wait for November 9th; I know what I'll be doing between that Tuesday and the following Monday ;-) In addition, I came across some other goodies concerning the Halo 2 (and Xbox Live in general) front.  One is that Plantronics is going to be making ...

  • Star Wars: Battlefront - I have mine, you got yours?

    I picked up a copy of the game during lunch today :-D, but am unable to play until later tonight since the Fort Worth .NET Users Group meeting is tonight.  It's a subject that I definitely want to pick the speakers brain about... Test Driven Development.  Besides, it wouldn't look very good for one of the officers of the group to miss ...

  • Rally Sport Challenge 2 - Voice communication fixed... Thoughts about update systems.

    I'm kind of late in saying this, however, it does appear that Microsoft Xbox corrected one of my major complaints with Rally Sport Challenge 2.  They've made it so that when racing against four people (not wire framed), you can *ALL* talk to one another. I would have figured that this was something that couldn't have been corrected ...

  • EA Serve has been chosen as the new host for XboxFriends.com...

    ...and will be the future home for AddressOf.com. Moving to EA Serve allows me to add several new features that have previously been a non-option in the past.  The performance is much better across the board.  Ping times are about 1/3rd of what they were previously and since it's a dedicated server... all the CPU usage goes toward ...

  • XboxFriends.com will be moving to a new web server soon...

    Thanks to all of those that have responded.  I really appreciate the offers and it looks like XboxFriends.com will have a new home after all.  Not ready to say where just yet, but once the move is completed and the new version of Xbox Friends Thing is ready, everyone will be let in on everything that is going on.  I can say that it ...

  • Xbox Friends Thing - Needs a new home...

    I need to find a web host provider that would be willing to trade services (and allow for some pretty specialized configuration) for promotional benefits.  I think this would be a great opportunity to that provider considering they would be getting exposure to a potential of over 1,000,000 people worldwide. If any of you know of such a web ...

  • Xbox Friends Thing... possible release later today.

    It's been difficult to really test against the Xbox.com changes, but I did find a few more things that needed to be addressed due to those changes.  I think I've got everything covered at this point and it's in the hands of the beta testers.  So far everything is looking pretty good and I'm optimistic that a new version will be ...
