calling a friend over Tongue

The thing you mentioned didn't do it, it actually took out my router, had to do a reset smile (thanks for the help though)

We connected the gateway to the PC and logged into the web configuration and manually set up the gateway (WPA key, and ip address) got it to work.

downloaded the demo, pretty fun.  I already own Forza 2, so that's enough racing right there.  Might get it down the road when it's cheaper

What is probably happening is that your wife's laptop is configured with security like WEP or WPA and has a key.
When you turn it off on the router she can't connect since it is configured to use security.

A good solution, but there are many, is to find the IP for your XBox either on the Netwrok blade or the router's DHCP table and set that IP for DMZ(NAT/firewall off) which will remove security from your Xbox but still keep it for the laptop.

Well, I tried doing that, and now it took out my router completely.  I can't access the configuration page, it now points to my modem

ok, I finally got onto xbox live.  My gamertag is naednek80  I used to be naednek but can't remember my info to recover my tag...

I am having a problem though.  I'm able to connect if I turn off my security on my router, but if I do that, somehow my wife's laptop won't connect.  And if I turn it back on, my wife can connect to her laptop, but the xbox 360 won't.  I bought the Dlink gamerlounge GLW 4300.

Anyways any ideas on how to fix it would be great, otherwise my gamertag is naednek80, so add me smile

Also, does Forza 2 come with a manual?   Mine didn't, and I doubt TRU will give me one for exchange now that it's opened.

3971  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I finally got it on: June 26, 2007, 04:57:08 AM
Today's my birthday, we celebrated yesterday.  With some money saved up and the money I received yesterday, I finally got my xbox 360. 

ToysRus had a deal when you buy the 360 you get a $50 gift card.  So I used that to pick up forza.

Man you were not kidding about how much heat it produces.  Right now it sitting on the 3rd shelf and I'm worried that it's getting too hot.  I'm thinking I should move it on top of the entertainment center.

Is it safe to use it vertically?

Also, I'm going to need a wireless adapter.  My brother in law said I should get a linksys.  I haven't had the chance to research this, since I thought it would come with one.  Do you know what he's suggesting?

I'm thinking I should have picked up a different game.  Forza2 in single player mode is kinda boring.

Maybe you could warm up by threatening someone's kids.

That had nothing to do with politics, the subject, or decency.  That was all about being a dick and spreading lies about someone.  It also had zero to do with whether I have an agreement with anyone or not.

There's always the safest route....

Ignore it? 

Yes it was a low blow.  I honestly don't know the history of it, and if it came from a different board, it shouldn't have been carried over here in GT.   If both of you needed to continue the discussion I recommended to use a different route, like PM.  It wasn't just directed to you, it was in general.

Here's the theme song by Mute Math.

Mutemath is a group that I have come to love in the last year.  This doesn't really sound like them, however, I do recommend buying their album.

Actually that wasn't the correct version of the theme song.  That's not even the correct artist.

Here is a clip of the original theme song performed by mute math

We rent a house, and we live near a river. We get a lot of bugs and spiders and even frogs at our house. We don't mind the frogs, but we are constantly finding spiders and bugs inside our house.

Because we rent, should it be the landlord's responsibility to pay for it since it his house, or would it be ours? I know it won't hurt to ask him if he'd pay, but I wanted to see what other's think

I rented it last thursday but didn't have time to sit down till Sunday night.  Put it in the dvd player, and it was all in subtitles.  I never heard of this movie until OO and here, and didn't follow the threads really.  I had no desire to sit and read a movie that night, so back it went.  Maybe some other time

Over the last two weeks I've been making a spreadsheet tracking our finances for the next year.  Thanks to SmoothB I used that template he gave me to track expenses. 

Before Erin and I were married we were both heavy in debt.  Before I met her, I was so close to coming up for air, and then things fell through.  So when we got married our debt was combined, and after talking about our goals we decided this is the first thing we got to get rid of.  Over time our goals have changed (not going to buy a house right away after the debt being paid off is one example) but having kids has always been something we both have set our sights on, only waiting till we can get a better handle on our financial situation.

Anyways, we have used the following strategies to reduce our bet.

We closed a few accounts that we don't use.  I personally don't like the idea, I think it will hurt our credit score by doing that, so we compromised and closed a couple that we don't really need.

I transferred a high interest card to a new card that gave me 3.9% on balance transfers, and Discover will pay for one month's interest every 6 months if we make our payments on time.  Haven't seen a better offer than that.  We also get 0% on new purchases, but that won't happen.  They operator also waived the balance transfer fee.  The only thing that I wish was different was that they would have given us more line of credit.  I was hoping to transfer one card to another, and the amount they gave us wasn't enough.

Both Erin and I, called our credit card companies and asked if they could lower our interest rates.  Erin got them to go lower on hers.  I got United Chase Card to give me 4000 points and lowering my interest by 3%.  It was better than nothing.  That's the card I transferred money away, so now the balance has been cut in half.  I'm waiting a an offer from an exisiting credit card account to transfer the remaining. 

All of our accounts are basically the same interest (besides the Discover) so we are paying off cards that have the lowest balance.  That way it will free up the minumum payments, and we feel like we are making process.   

As we pay off cards that miniumum payments that we would be making would be going towards the next lowest balance card.  And it goes on and on like that. 

I'm getting a raise in July, while Erin is getting a $200 a month raise in August, so that will speed things up.  I'm also getting another raise in January.  So by January Erin and I will be making about $500 a month more than we are now.

Erin's car will be paid off in December that frees up another $154. 

So with that said, if nothing will happen between now and next May, we will be debt free.  However I'm realistic and I know that won't happen.  March began the birthday season, and it doesn't stop until October.  We made agreements that we won't pay more than $20 on Friends and $30 on  Family, we can't afford to.   We also have a wedding to attend, any my wife is the maid of honor, so there's some expenses on our behalf.  We had a great tax return last year, and we expect even more.

So I'm expecting to be truly out by August of next year, but if we do a good job managing our finances we might make it out earlier.

It's a huge relief to see the progress we have made since we've been married (8 months) and see what's in store in the future.
