CBlogs of 04.12.08 + Zimmerisms

Alright, here's your recap for the day. You'll probably notice that I've only made one pick. It's not that the blogs were completely full of fail or that I didn't think anything was worthy. It's because this one story is so important that absolutely nothing should distract you from reading it and the article linked within. Click them. Seriously. Zimmerisms after the recap.

My 360 finally returned from service this week and, amazingly, I've had no problems whatsoever. You hear about all of the assorted issues folks have regarding getting back a unit with a different serial number and it makes you freak out a little bit when it comes to sending your hardware off. Sure, it kinda has to be done (unless you're one of those people who absolutely has to try and fix it themselves). Still, I was worried.

Thankfully, no problems at all. It took the about the same amount of time to receive my unit, repair it and send it back as it did for them to get the coffin to me in the first place. Hooked everything back up and it's worked a dream since. It's really obvious that there's a new drive in there (disc-read errors were my issue), as it pops right out now like a thing possessed instead of the slow crawl I'd become accustomed to. All my XBLA downloads are working offline and, all things considered, I'm a happy camper.
