If anyone out there is looking for an xbox for any reason, I now have an extra one laying around. It's enhanced so to speak. P.M. me if you're interested, and I'll give you more details.
I spent about a hundred dollars buying used books from amazon dot com a couple of weeks ago. I was able to get a total of 11 books for 120 I believe. Not a bad deal. It's funny though as out of all the books there is probably about a books worth of information that I would consider enlightening beyond my current threshold of knowledge. Good referrences though. I do wish there were better books written on the Win32 API though. I can generally find what I need to know, but there really isn't anything out there that is straight foward and comprehensive, and we all know the glorious ease of use of microsoft documentation; although it usually turns up I'm not using the correct phrase or keywords specifically, or I'm too specific. A catch 22 to remember. I suppose it adds a nobility to coding though, having to be humbled by searching for the answers instead of just having them put right in front of you. Kind of like life.
Moma always said that life was like Win32 API documentation.. you never know what your going to get.
