Satan took over my XBOX360.

Since I've been reading about Job in my Bible studies recently, it makes sense that my XBOX 360 crashed on me tonight. You see, God allowed Satan to do whatever he wanted to Job (except kill him) because Satan told God that the only reason Job loved God in the first place was because God had blessed him immensely. It was Satan's contention that once all of the things Job had been blessed with were removed from his life, that he would denounce God and curse him. Even though Jobs family members were all killed, his house destroyed, his friends abandoned him, he came down with a disease that almost killed him and his peers telling him to just curse God already, Job never did.

Well, I feel like Job right now. My XBOX 360 died tonight. Not only did it die, but it died tonight. The night I found out that the football game that I've been waiting for over two years to come out had been released early, prompting a trip to the video game store tonight to purchase it. I popped it in, turned it on, and I was literally in heaven. I was picking my dream team which included Steve Young, Gary Plummer and some other guys. As soon as I picked my team and pressed continue, it happened. My XBOX froze. So I turned it off, then back on again and there it was. The 3 red lights of doom. Hardware failure. Unrepairable if you're not a person that works at Microsoft. So I had to send my XBOX in. It's a 5 week turnaround. So, I won't be playing my new football game until late August. I won't curse God. I won't. I'm just going to be like Job and accept this horrible tragedy without giving up on Him.

If $300 isn't going to break your bank account, and you'd like to help, please send a new XBOX360 to me at: (I WOULD REALLY BE GRACIOUS AND APPRECIATE IT)

    I read quite a few article about "fixes" for this problem, and pretty much every one of them said that the towel method is a real bad idea, and it's only temporary at that. The repair is free from Microsoft, so it's just easier to suck it up and wait it out for 5 weeks.

    However. I'm not going to suck it up. So today I went to Best Buy, bought a 360, and am going to take it back in 30 days so I don't actually have to pay for it. It's on the credit card, so it's basically like renting a 360 for 30 days for free.

    This isn't an ethics discussion. So don't start.
