One thing I didn't know was that youtube has tons of videos like this, how to's for all your computer needs which is awesome.
I bought an Xbox 360 on the weekend. I had held off as I'm not a traditional gamer. I have the feeling most people gaming are sitting at home with headsets and playing online games. I like puzzle and strategy games I play by myself.
One negative is that this thing really sucks your time. I kept saying "Go to bed. I should go to bed!" and 5 hours later, I was like "Crap!".
