    Got my Xbox 360 today and I have to say that i'm a bit disappointed with the quality overall. Maybe it's because it's only the Core system and I can't help thinking that I should have opted for the Premium instead. To be fair though I did pre-order the Premium from Amazon so I should be greatful that my wife made me this in a hurry this morning at all in order to stop me whining that I had nothing to play my newly delivered Project Gotham 3 on.

    You just have to admire the stunning lack of effort and craftsmanship that she put into it :)

    I love it. :D

    Sell it to Chundles, he's into that sort of thing. I doubt it'll be much for shipping...

    You could make a little sail for it and ship it over yourself.

    LOL. I have a canister of helium left over from my recent wedding so I could always airmail it...

    As far-fetched as that may be...you probably could sell it for that price. ;) :)

    Damn! I ran out of helium. I reckon another couple would have got it off the ground too! Ah well, looks like it'll have to be the little sail Madjew.

    The power supply consists of a yellow and black striped worm that is tied to the string which our cat plays with and it doesn't weigh that much
