Subtle Updates and Other Historical Back Steps
I spent the last two days watching football and fixing up a few odds & ins around my sites. Probably the biggest change is the top menu. I’ve tried to match the style across each major site, including font and minor format changes…

SafePit 30,000gs, the Zeros Are So Pretty
It seemed to take me forever lately, but finally made it to 30K. I blame my Halo 3 addiction to the lack of improvement in my gamer score. It seems silly tracking this stuff, but it is fun tracking each of these 5K milestones…

25000 Is Where It's At
Well, it took a bit longer this time around to get 25000. Seems all the games I’ve been playing aren’t giving up much in points. Of course, it doesn’t help that I’ve mostly been playing Halo 3 during this time. In any case, I made it to 25K! Okay, now I can get back to gaming…

Random Stuff
It’s been busy of late. I’d been on vacation for almost 3 weeks with just a few days of work in between. My parents were in town (hi Mom) a couple of weeks ago. Then I was out of town for my wife’s family. That wasn’t really a vacation, though…

360voice Dynamic Userbars Launched
As much as I use the data, I thought it only fitting to give back. So, today I launched 360voice Dynamic Userbars. If you’re a 360voice user and like userbars, show your pride by adding one of these images to your forum signatures. For example, here is my userbar: As I’ve said bef…

20K - Keeping the Streak Alive
Woo, woo! Was finally able to get 20K GS last night. Seems like it took forever. This won’t last long—friend let me borrow Avatar—an easy 1000 is an easy 1000. It will also help my 360voice Challenge that I’m currently in.

Cool Halo API
This is pretty cool. Hawty McBloggy blogged about a site that generates some spawn time stats (Halo 3 - Time Wasted Respawning). The script is interesting. But more interesting was that it makes use of a Halo API. If you remembered (or cared) I blogged about looking for an API…

Halo 3 Badge
I thought this was pretty cool, a number of flash or image badges from Battle Record that uses your Halo 3 service record. Check out one of the images below: Pretty cool.

I Blew My Streak
Darn it, I lost my gaming streak after a paltry 32 days. :-( My Internet was down part of the day last week. Either that, or I just totally spaced it. Either way, I’ve started over again. Sigh. So much for trying to get that 50+ badge on my 360voice Blog.

360voice Userbar
Well, I’ve been using 360voice for awhile now. It is the site that creates the Xbox 360 blogs. So, I thought I’d whip up a Userbar for the site. 360voice-ub by Steven Reid, on Flickr They have an API as well, so I’ll try making a WebAPP plug-in. Stay tuned.

Mission Accomplished
Well, it took me just over a month, but I was finally able to find the time to get 1500 pts and complete the Old Spice Challenge on Xbox Rewards. Looks like I’ll receive 4 rewards though—that is pretty cool—assuming I wasn’t too late to receive them…

Gamer Score Charts
This looks to have been out awhile, but as I’ve been gaming—or living under a rock—I thought I’d share it to others who, like me, obviously missed this. This is another cool example of what people can do with Xbox Live! data. Try it out with …

XBOX 360 Can Blog
This is hilarious. You can now have your XBOX 360 blog. So funny! Picked this up from Major Nelson. My Xbox 360 isn’t too chatty now, but I’m sure as I spend more time playing Oblivion, the more it will speak out. Looking at others, it does get a bit repetitive…

Playing into Oblivion
Okay, I broke down and bought The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for the XBOX 360 yesterday. I had some free time today, so I spun up the DVD drive and took the game for a spin. I spent a little over 3 hours working my way towards the first quest, exploring the countryside as I go…
