have pc's always been this way??? first my xbox wont hook up to xbox live when i do a ics connection through my pc. works like a charm on my ibook though. it has worked before so i formatted my comp trying to get it to work and still it doesnt work! now my pc is just a big paperweight cuz it has no apps on it and im too pissed off to mess with it. not to mention the time ive spent updating it. ive been trying to get it to work since 4 pm, its now 12 am. its a fairly new computer too. it has a 2800+ amd athlon and a 9800 pro. god i hate windows. you would think hooking up a microsoft computer to a microsoft xbox would be easy but its not. just my little rant to blow off some steam.
