Some of my highlights over the years at XS:

0. June 30, 2002 - I joined to win X-S second contest - 5 XIOS modchips (Xtender 1.1 clones)
1. X-S trading/signature cards.
2. Team Xecuter give away/picture contest. I believe it was something to do with take a picture of yourself with their logo/XS logo near a M$ building/sign.
3. Easybuy2000 - I still never got my refund for my defective matrix w/ pogo pins.
4. Breaking the 137gig limit.
5. X-S t-shirt. I still have mine (1st gen) and wear it proudly!
6. Lik-sang getting shut down.
7. All the rumors about xbox360
8. Xbox360 MT DEW Winners thread (I still hate you guys)
9. EvolutionX - editing that ini
10. XBMC - best media player ever!
11. the usual places - trying to tell newbies about that special place.

I've had a lot of good times on this forum - and really, xbox modding was one of the main reasons I ended up getting into electrical engineering (2nd year now, wooo!), because I enjoyed working with electronics so much. I enjoy modding just as much as I did 6 years ago (though I didnt have an account on these forums back then, I only ever read the main X-s page).

And the place I bought an 80gb drive for my old xbox back in 2004 I got a job at (I asked if there any jobs available while I was buying the drive) and ended up working there for 5 years before going off to uni. Consequently after buying that drive, I learnt all about formatting via FTP via the tutorials on here.

The xbox and these forums, as well as the info the people of X-S have provided over the years will always remembered fondly. Good times cool.gif

oh geez... the memories working on my xbox.
it was v1.0 with a shithompson in it. i got it when i broke my collarbone, had it for a bit, then the hdd dried. gotit fixed at a shop..ended up dying again. got a replacement (v1.6b Halo LE)
sooo modded the old one to put in a new hdd, got a x2.0 lite+, spent forever trying to get that to work.. then i remember the night i was messing, turned it on and saw the cromwell bios, about shit my pants ha. got it reflashed, used slayers to set it up, many times were spent running that and playing nes games. my first thing i ever painted, first thing i put leds in.. learned alot from it. now i can solder good, wiring leds doesnt scare me, i can do good paint jobs with rattle cans...

Hey! Same here! Going onto my 3rd year in Electrical Engineering now happy.gif

Anywho, hello everyone!

I learned so much from X-S and met (if that's even the correct word) some incredibly talented and great people. X-S, like someone mentioned above, was the first site that I ever cared about. hahaha. Man, just posting this brings a feeling of nostalgia laugh.gif

Cheers,

Yeah I still have my v1.1 going because it's the only thing I can play NHL Hitz on lol.

So who remembers the fun time we had when a forum member (Bubba I think?) stumbled on a stash of big screen TVs for a killer price? I remember getting ready with a few thousand dollars ready to by them up.
