Remember, they REFUND your membership if you don't at least match what you paid. Very nice feature of it, basically, it is free.  thumbsup

I just checked yesterday what I have spent, I am up to $6,500.00 spent there, with somewhere around 6 months left. I don't forsee  more than another $3,000-$4,000 there over the next 6 months - for about $10,000.00 total..  So I will have a pretty massive check coming back from them.  The reason this is so high, we buy *ALL* of our stuff there, this includes groceries for a family of 5, baby formula+diapers, and all that jazz.  Our grocery/baby supplies budget is $500 a month.

how do you know how much you spend?  Can you find out via the website?

I think my confusion is, I have two things that need sound.  Xbox and my PC.  I have the speakers going into my sound card in line in.  (just 2 speakers and the center)  When I add the 360, I'm going to have to plug that in.  I assume that needs to go in the line in.  If so, how can I do that, when it's already in use.  The y adapter I bought was it connected the component cables from the xbox and feeds it into 1.  That one plugs into the sound card.

You presumably need to go from two rca jacks to a single stereo mini plug. You can get one at Radio Shack for a couple bucks.
You'll probably want an extension cable as well, unless your computer is very close to your monitor.

That's what I have, but I still don't see how I'm going to plug the xbox into my pc without having to unplug the line in my computer is already using

Talk to the office manager where you live, sometimes they will work out a deal with you about breaking lease.  You can ask if they rent it out within the 1st month would they refund your penalty. 

Erin and I were about to break out lease, and they said if we found someone to move in, they wouldn't charge us anything.

Also, we were going from an apt to a house, the house and a fridge, and washer/dryer, so that $1000 fee for breaking lease would probably been a deal, because we found a house without the fridge/washer/dryer, it would easily be over $1000 that would go towards those appliances.

And yet, they still haven't fixed the most important problem of the game.  don't let this new scenario fool you, they can add extra content all they want, if they don't fix the routing issue, all the extra content won't matter.

The problem isn't Hetz, its the same old people over and over saying the same old stuff. We get it, quit with the new threads on it.

The problem is both.  People on both sides of fence need to stop baiting each other into disputes.  Both sides need to respect each other's opinion, and accept that some people like PS3s, others like 360's, and others like both. 

We've had the same argument since these consoles have been announced.  It's starting to get hostile, and it's beginning to divide people from each other. 

It's perfectly fine to discuss things, but try to keep bias and baiting out of the posts.

We have Viva Pinata and have played that a little bit, definitely a fun game. I think Ethan digs the action type stuff more though and was always asking for Kameo. icon_smile Marvel Ultimate Alliance is on my Christmas list this year, looks great.

I've been trying out the Live Arcade demos too but nothing has really grabbed me yet, although RoboBlitz seemed like it might be a good pick for us.

Can Ethan and I play Gears of War when I get my 360?  You should pick up lost planet when it comes out smile

The only thing that interests me is Rainbow Six for the PC.

I will wait to hear what the so-called experts have to say at the R6 website.  If they say the controls are good (I can't imagine them being as good as they are on the 360 - but you never know), I'm gettin' it.



If the game is still a FPS style game, it's automatically better than any console version of the game.
