Yeah, its illegal, but then again how often does a police officer come into your house and take apart your video game system?

I never did this but check this out:

I also thought that it was difficult with XBox because of a chip in the games. :-?

Xbox uses DVDs. They can't put chips in the games, unless I am misunderstanding what you mean.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

You must be right. I'm not into that stuff. I just thought that they had a chip in the games as a security measure.

Ok lol, well as long as you don't go around stealing code for unreleased games, you'll be fine.

Yes it's illegal, but it's just one of those things where odds are that you won't get caught. It does void you warranty though (not that that is a really big deal either).

Anyway, my X-Box is currently out of commission due to a lightning bolt. I'll eventually get around to seeing if I can fix it. :-b

Oh and before anyone can call me stupid for not having it on a surge protector, save your breath :-D . It was on a surge protector but the bolt of lightning hit the cable dish which runs into the DVD surround system and the X-Box was plugged directly into the surround system. The bolt didn't go through the electrical, so it wasn't protected by the surge protector. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's why I got a UPS:

Surge protectors suck. At least most of them. They don't do anything. A UPS has a battery backup so you can either keep working or safely shut down. I got 1 at a computer store for like $40.

Most of them on the above page are huge and for big stuff. They have the smaller stuff there or in stores.
