Escaping region locking on an XBOX 360

Sat, 09/03/2011 - 21:31 -- webchick

Because I searched for I don't even know how long and couldn't find an answer to this question...

The short version — do this:
Apple's internet sharing screen showing VPN connection shared to Ethernet.

The long version:

You're in the US, you buy some Call of Duty map pack expansions for XBox 360 from EB Games there, you get back home to Canada and try and redeem the codes, and what happens? "This item is not available from your region." FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

The Awesomeness of Etrian Odyssey II

Sun, 04/05/2009 - 22:42 -- webchick

It's not very often that I write about something other than Drupal, but frankly something's come up that deserves it. ;) A little Nintendo DS title called Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard.

I seriously can't remember being this geeked out about a game since I was a teenager. I spent the weekend poring through forum topics, making huge spreadsheets to help with the agonizing decision on party builds, mining databases for information about skills, etc. (Hey, I never said I wasn't a dork. :P) This kind of immersion hasn't happened in years for me, and it's such an awesome feeling! :D

If you have fond memories of dungeon crawlers like Wizardry and Ultima, enjoy hunting down and collecting items, and like drawing maps, you need to run, not walk, to your nearest video game store and pick this gem up, assuming you can find it.

Goodbye, World... :(

Since I got my start in the Drupal community in 2005, most have noticed that I've been a wee bit, erm. Obsessed. I try to help out in as many ways as possible, and often this means juggling about 50,000 different priorities at a given time, the last of which is always sleep.

Well, it was fun for the last 2.5 years, but enough is enough. While I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Drupal community, my participation has often been at the expense of relationships with family and friends as well as my own personal health and well-being. :( So, it's time to say "goodbye, world" to the Drupal community and instead embark on a new chapter in my life...
