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.

I saw this on Letterman the other night and couldn't help but crack up. She was trying so hard to come up with something that had a global perspective.
Question: "Recent polls have shown 1/5 of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?"
South Carolina: "I personally believe that you as Americans are unable
to do so because (um) some people out there in our nation dont have
maps. And I believe that our education, such as South Africa and the
Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should-- our
education over here in the US should help the US, (uh-b-err-uh) should
help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so
we will be able to build up our future... for our children...."
