I ended up having to get a new 360 Elite (79FL) because my DVD drive on my old unit (79FK) crapped out. It wouldn't read any type of media: DVDs, Games, Backups, etc.  I just took apart my new 360 today and installed my NME 1.2 chip into it, but I can't get it to work.

I was trying to add my grandparent's e-mail to my Gmail contact list, but gmail kept telling me "Please make sure the email address you entered is valid."  I figured it probably wouldn't import it because they were using something of a non-standard address.

The culprit here happens to be the ampersand sign.  I realized that gmail also has a contacts import option which allows you to import contacts from a CSV file. A CSV file is essentially just a text file with values separated by commas. It essentially allows you to put tabular data into a non-proprietary format.

Editors Note: There is not supposed to be a space after the ampersand, but for some reason my blog software keeps adding it.

Here's a quick tip for verifying local group membership.  This is a quick and easy way to see if someone is a member of a local group. I use this when trying to quickly see if someone is a member of the Administrators group. Simply open the command prompt and run the following code:

NET LOCALGROUP [GROUPNAME]

It didn't take long for me to mod the Wii. The day after I bought my Wii, I bought the modchip online. The mod chip didn't make it until a week after I received the actual console, but as soon as I got the chip I set out to install it. The installation of the chip is extremely simple and straightforward, but taking apart the console and putting it back together may be a bit tricky for some. I bought a black full-replacement case so that my Wii would match the rest of my equipment and that part of the installation was the most tricky.
