Indeed Venice Italy is a very nice place I tell you. Countless people leave their Wifi network open and unprotected. But that is not why this city is so nice. It is the romance - wondering the streets with my newly wedded wife amongst the thousands and thousands of tourists and not really noticing that.
I know this post is a little out of place on AA but hey I don't give a cr*p - I am happy!

Cheers, Mark

Thank god Elise is a gamer too!

Frank, I am so glad that Elise is a gamer too. We in fact got Mario Olympics as one of the gifts from Elise's co-workers! I actually have to fight for my right to xbox360 because Elise is playing it too ;)
But as I as I do want to be able to play without sharing the console for a little I ended up temporarily moving the 360 into the study, connecting it to the VGA input of my 22inch widescreen LCD and hooking it up to the old stereo that is in here. The Wii sits downstairs and gets loads of playtime from us both.
The unlucky thing is that PAL xbox originals are often running at 50Hz which is not compatible with the VGA cable. NTSC games don't suffer that faith. What I just cannot understand is why Microsoft doesn't state that properly on the Xbox original downloadables. Of course in NTSC country one doesn't have to face these problems. The original xbox suffers from PAL/NTSC idiosyncrasies too.
In PAL country the original xbox just wasn't component capable - hold on - it actually is when you change the eprom holding the PAL/NTSC switch by hacking it a little.

Anyways, I will uphold the graft as will Elise ;P

Never been to Venice, but have been to all of the military bases that line Italy. I remember because the plane we were on broke down so we had to land at each one of them! We had almost 3 full days to explore some of the towns and the one that comes to mind (probably not spelled right) is Senegalia on the coast. Very beautiful, people were nice and the restaurants were great.

Now to the important stuff. Did you review the rules of gaming in the household and the fact that you'll require x number of hours per week to devote to the craft, prior to exchanging the vows? Congrats!

Cheers/Frank
