Many, many moons ago, okay it was only about 3 months ago, I bought this cool little contraption called a modchip. I was told it would be the answer to all my problems, solution to all. The day came, it was sunny and oh so warm outside, but I decided to leave that awesome warm sunny day for the birds, and stay inside to install this "answer to all my problems" solution into my new xbox. Things were going just great, I could hear the birds chirping away outside telling me to come out and play, but no, I have to get this thing installed! Oh these pins won't line up for crap! What! No indication lights to tell me it is alligned! Gasp! I now hear the howling of coyotes, how is this possible I ask!? The birds were chirping just a few minutes ago! I look at my watch and it is almost 10:00 p.m!! I have been trying to allign this thing for 6 hours now, I yell with a hellish loudness!! I should have been playing XBOX Live by now!! This is the answer to all my problems, I shout so loud that the neighbors dog starts to bark with a deafening growl!? Oh, I will have that little kid by the neck (the one that told me about the modchip in the first place!)
Finally!! Success! I see Executer2 on the bootup screen!! YES! YES! YES! I start to dance around the living room like a 12 year old!
Who's yer daddy?! It yo birthday! I say so much and so loudly that my wife awakes and comes in the living room to catch me doing my victory dance!
The answer to all my problems is now installed and operational, I say to my wife. She says, really? What is that dear? Well, it is that new modchip I told you about, I got it installed and it's ready to rock 'n roll! Wow, well now that you have me up, let's see that new game I bought you, she says. I happily oblige, and throw in my shiny new Ghost Recon DVD, and shout, "Let's Go Live"! We do, Go Live that is, and I show her around a bit. We both decide it is time to throw in the towel, and agree to go try and make a baby!
And yes, for you young ones, it is better than Ghost Recon!
Well, the morning sun awakes me the next morning, as I sit up to realize I have a serious case of "bedhead", (you can all guess what that is from!
), and the first thing on my mind is going and finding that "mightyDUCKman7737" on Ghost Recon/Xbox Live and wasting him! He has gotten me pretty good, and it is time to even the score, I think to myself. I grab my coffee, the wifey makes it just perfect!, sit down in my comfy chair, grab the controller, switch that badboy on, and.... WHAT THE H$%#!!! Okay, I need my technophile little buddy right now, I yell! I can't read this crap, let alone understand it! Something about being banned or something. Honey! Call Jimmy up and have him come over right away, I have a problem with that chip he told me to get, I tell her. Wifey brings over the cordless with Jimmy sounding pretty badly on the other end. Appears Jimmy was up all night on something he called a "LAN Party", and was pretty tired! I tell him what's going on, and he says, "read to me what the screen says!". I do so, and he says, "Oh man, Oh man, Oh man, I FORGOT TO TELL YOU ABOUT THAT!!" You can't use XBOX Live with the Mod Chip turned on, Jimmy says in a very humble soft voice. You have been "blacklisted", and I say "Black-WHAT!" Oh man, he says, this is not good! I say, don't worry Jimmy, I am sure there is some way to fix it, right? Isn't there, Jimmy? Jimmy? J-I-M-M-Y!!! I yell, are you there!!?? Honey, it appears that we got disconnected, can you get Jimmy on the line for me again, puulease I say (in my soft sweet voice)!! Dear, she says....Jimmy isn't home anymore! His mom said he just left for a week long Boy Scout camping trip! Thanks honey, I say.
Needless to say, little Jimmy is never home anymore when I call. I found out that I either need to buy a new xbox, or get one of those EEPROM thingies, and if I do, maybe I can have little Jimmy come over and install it, NOT! I will manage just fine!
That was a few days in my humble life, hope you had fun!
