Dumpster Diving Dangers!!

Ok so I am getting ready to move so obviously I have been getting rid of some old junk. While I practically filled up my dumpster and on my last trip out I threw away one last set of computer books and old computer games. However what I did not notice is the fact that that some lady was dumpster diving and well..... I dumped about 50+ pounds of books and software on her head. At first I felt bad but honestly she was going through my old stuff which is not legal so she got what she deserved. Plus it is is kind of funny.

RIAA Says Ripping CDs not Fair Use

Ok these guys are real pricks. I don't know why they think they have all these rights. First they said Sony was justified and now they say we are all thieves for using the music we purchaced on our MP3 players.

Shari's Berries Strawberry Roses

Yesterday was Valentines Day. Honestly this is the first one I have ever enjoyed thanks to my beautiful fiancé. I got her One Dozen Strawberry Roses from Shari's Berries and they are really good. However If I had known they had wedding versions I would have gotten a few of those as well.

Official XBOX Magazine Disk Boiling

Ok this is one of the stranger things I have had to do. In all my years working with electronics I have never once thought boiling water would be the answer to a DVD disk read error. My Official XBOX Magazine (OXM) issue 53 demo disk would not play in my XBOX 360. I tried cleaning it, polishing it and cleaning it again but nothing worked. So I was complaining out on the XBOX Forums and someone with the gamertag "Call Me Early" suggested I boil the disk for 5 seconds. Honestly I thought they were crazy but I had nothing to loose so I tried and to my surprise it worked. Now I got all the OXM points for that month and I am happy. I hope I don't have to do this very often.
