Thanks man. As you can tell, I finally got my Live account set up. I was having a bitch of a time connecting to Live at first. I thought my internet was acting wonky. I spent a good hour trying different things. Turns out I just needed to open the proper ports. My best friend who is staying with me wanted to get CoD4 to play. And she bought me Gears of War since it was only 5 bucks. I really like the Dashboard. Much cooler than the XMB, for sure!
Thanks for making me feel welcome!
EDIT: What the balls is this shit? No hug smiley? LAME!!!
