If you purchased your Xbox prior to December 2003, follow this link to get a replacement power cable. Your current power cable poses a fire hazard.
There is no sound scarier than a high-voltage capacitor discharging quickly in an area with high humidity.
I purchased an entertainment center from one of my new co-workers. He delivered it last weekend, but forgot to bring the three large black shelves.
He brought in the shelves on Tuesday to work, and I took the first one home on the train last night. I was sitting next to this fairly attractive blonde who wouldn't even look at me. Just before my stop, I asked her why.
Her response: "I'm not used to white guys haulin' black wood."
Yet another culture shock moment.
