XBOX power supply repairing

Hi Xbox geeks,

This is something a lil technical. Well, but I just thought you would want to know about how to fix up your console if you find your Xbox isn't turning on for reasons best known to the Microsoft geeks ! Well, a little knowledge will help you fix up stuff simply easy enough so that you can save your time to catch on another race or wrestling match with your fiercest neighborhood nemesis !

So here it goes :
Does your Xbox spark and crackle when you plug the power cord in. If so you are one of the many Xbox owners who could be in danger of smoking your box and also a potential fire hazard on your hands. This tutorial will show you how to correct that problem if it is already going on or how to take pro-active measures to see that it doesn't happen or at least get bad enough to do some damage. If you have a 1.0 Foxlink power supply or one of the delta versions with the same problem and you don't want to deal with this again there is one final solution; the Minebea power supply. Take it from the Llamma's mouth, the Minebea is the best OEM power supply out there. We feel they are the least likely to fall victim to this failure.

Remember; make absolutely sure that you unplug your Xbox before opening the unit.

Now that you have it open remove the two screws that hold the power supply in place and slide it toward the front a bit and it will lift right out. Again, be careful because there are capacitors that store enough bang to make you jump or worse :) believe me... I know! Now flip that thing over and zoom in for a look.

Above is a photo of your average power supply, this one happens to be a foxlink.
See both tabs? The top one is obviously black and burnt but the lower one has also broken loose and is making intermittent contact. A little alcohol and a q-tip to tidy up most of the vaporized lead.

A little scraping with a blade removes the hard to get stuff.
Dab a little flux and heat it up (800 degrees/30+ watt iron)
A quick touch up on the other contact and we are ready to rock and roll.
I like to squirt a little hot glue behind the A/C connector on the top side in the hopes that it helps
make it more solid. But, so far, I have had one fail again relatively shortly after the repair which
leads me to believe that it doesn't help much. If the pins are too loose and the cord is too tight
it will just break again no matter what you do!

Top 10 XBOX games in 2008

Hi gamers,

I just thought I would collect all the information on the Xbox games that would hit the market in 2008. Well, there were too many and most of them are releasing in the second half of the year. So, I had to put them under stringent scrutiny to bring out the list of the TOP 10 would-be-most-sought-after games on the big console in 2008. I am sure this will be of much use to all you X-Box fans across the world !

At no: 10

God of War: Chains of Olympus
This is surely one game to watch out for with its promos promising us some swift archaic action.

At no: 9
Little Big Planet
Sony’s quirky puzzle-platformer is turning heads with fun team-based gameplay and a great physics engine.

At no: 8
Lost Odyssey
The next long-awaited title from Mistwalker Studios is set to offer excellent graphics and tons of classic gameplay elements.

At no: 7
Kill Zone 2
One of the most controversial upcoming titles around, Killzone 2 has been much of an enigma following a much speculated trailer a few years ago, but no doubt should be worth a look in 2008.

At no: 6
EA's oft-delayed uber-sim looks to finally land on PC this year, and could be the revolutionary kick in the pants that the PC platform needs.

At no: 5
Resident Evil 5
While it’s tough to weigh in on the upcoming entry to the Resident Evil series, considering how little is known about it in terms of gameplay, it still promises to carry the legacy of the series nicely in a brand new desert setting.

At no: 4
Super Smash Bors. Brawl
Promising to bring the series’ beloved mascot-pounding action to the Wii in online form, Brawl is the title that Wii owners are undoubtedly anxious for.

At no: 3
Final Fantasy XIII
After years of waiting, it seems that the thirteenth installment of the long-running, wildly popular RPG franchise is going to launch this year, marking the series’ debut on the PS3.

At no: 2
Metal Gear Solid 4
What is billed as Snake’s final mission is one of the most anticipated games since, well, Snake’s last mission. Metal Gear Solid 4 is turning out to be every bit as exciting and groundbreaking as series fans have been waiting for.

At no: 1
With gamers awaiting each new trailer with bated breath, Grand Theft Auto IV, the God of this genre ( open ended violent gameplay ) should’ve been the biggest game of 2007. Unfortunately, delays have pushed it back until sometime this year, but haven’t killed the excitement that gamers feel about it.

So, that completes the list of TOP 10 XBOX games to look ut for in 2008. Hope you got the hang of it. Will catch you with more updates, trailers, gameplay videos and screenshots of these listings shortly !

User focussed search site

Hi friends,

I am sure this news I have with me now is going to surprise all you people out there. Searching the internet for information is one task that all of us would have done. And, most of us would have more often than not had bitter experiences in searching for specific information. Especially information pertaining to research study, or career planning, wedding preparation, vacation planning etc. There are several search sites on the internet that facilitate browsing the internet for content. Some of the most popular search sites with powerful search engines are Google, Yahoo, Altavista, and a few more. These search engines have their own way of functioning and rating websites depending on which they list out websites. Google adopts a policy known as Page Rank based on which it determines the popularity of the webpage and hence the search on Google is based on the popularity of the site and also on the Traffic the webpage receives which is directly related to its popularity on the internet. Sometimes, you may have to use different search engines to arrive at the required result. Some results you may be looking for can be found only using specific search sites. It is very tedious to hunt for information by switching between various search sites when time is not very friendly. This is where a new break through technology has come which lets you access all the search sites from one place ! Now, isn't that real news ! I am sure it was ! Jumphunt is a site that allows you to use all the popular search sites from one box at the ease of a single click. There are simple codes you need to know to access all of the search sites you want to. It goes simply like this :

w hello = search wikipedia for hello
y hello = search yahoo for hello
Google is default if no keyword are used.

You can also modify these codes, share it and download jumps created by other users of jumphunt. It is a brand new site, hardly even a week old, the only user being the one who created it. But, the site is sure to grow in popularity very soon. Do visit the site and make use of this wonderful feature and tell your friends about this.

Saran accuses Kamal

Hi movie fans,

Rumor mill has it that popular film director Saran of Vasool Raja fame, has reportedly lodged a complaint against universal hero Kamal Haasan since he did not return the advance of Rs. 2 crore that was paid to the profilic actor for a film that was to be directed by Saran under his Gemini Circuit Banner. Kamal Haasan, busy supervising the post-production work for his Dasavatharam, isn’t even seen at public events as often. He seems fully immersed in the project. This project has been delayed so much that it has almost slipped out of the audiences’ minds and has let the official announcement do the talking. Even talks of his next film after Dasavatharam have quiesced. Saran decided to handover the production to Ayngaran International. This decision reportedly irked Kamal who claims he wasn’t informed about this move and now wants to opt out of the project. Saran claims that he had no issues with Kamal opting out but wanted him to return the advance amount he had received earlier. Saran has approached the producer’s council to procure the amount from Kamal. When asked what his next plan of action would be if nothing comes off mediation he said that he would disclose it when such a situation arises. Controversies and Kamal seem to go hand in hand. Let’s hope all is settled amicably. Hope all the effervescence comes down to see the two of them give us more entertaining films in future.

Dhoom 3 to wait for King Khan

hi friends,

Of all the stars’ films that released in 2007 only Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar managed to keep the box office going. The King Khan’s two releases that were well spaced out saw to it that the box office never really stopped ringing. In fact, his first hit of the year, Chak De, went on to create a new genre in Hindi films – sports. Sadly, 2007 wasn’t the year for Yash Raj Films as all their films except Chak De turned croppers at the box office. King Khan wasn’t Yash Raj’s favorite, in recent times, as the relationship between the two turned sour the previous year. Now all that is dead and buried as they say you can’t argue with success. Guess that applies to SRK as well. Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films has decided to cast SRK in their film, to begin this year and the producer seems so hell bent that he has even postponed his plans to start Dhoom 3, which had earlier topped his priority list. Now that is what you call star power. So fans of the Dhoom series will have to wait for the king to make way.

A R Rahman commences new Music School

Hi music fans,

This is news at its unexpected best ! Ace music director A.R.Rahman who is popularly known as the Mozart of Madras, on his birthday this week, inaugurated his own music school called KM Conservatory that is aimed at developing a world class orchestra. His fans across the world popularly refer him to as the ‘Mozart of Madras’. This musical genius called A R Rahman celebrated his birthday yesterday, January 6th. Rahman has always wanted the music industry to be more organized, which for a long time remained largely unorganized. Rahman has on his birthday announced another initiative worthy of applause and this time it is about nurturing local talent. In his communiqué to Behindwoods he announced that his label KM music has started the KM Music Conservatory and Audio Media Education, India's First Apple authorized training center. Located in Chennai, the center will offer a Program in Music and Music Technology. He says electronic sounds have in the last two decades played an instrumental role in revolutionizing music so much so that listeners have lost interest in live classical compositions. This, he believes, will deprive future generations from appreciating the joy of live classical music and KM Music Conservatory will play a significant role in rekindling interest in live classical music. As of now, Indian music composers have to travel abroad in search of orchestras; it is this hassle that KM Music Conservatory intends to eliminate. The conservatory faculties include both Indian as well as International professors and musicians who will educate students in Indian and Western Classical music. The school will be auditioning and accepting singers and students who play flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, double bass, and percussion. Courses will include Western Vocal and Instrumental Performance, Indian Classical Vocal, Western and Indian Music Theory, Music Appreciation, Ear Training, Piano, Audio Engineering, an Apple certified course in Logic Pro, and a Digidesign certified course in Pro Tools. Scholarships will be offered to deserving students from the A.R. Rahman Foundation. Wish the mozart all the success in his future endeavours.

Rajini in Shankar's Robot

Hi friends,

It finally went official against all public confusion about who is the protagonist in Shankar's magnum opus. Superstar Rajinikanth signed on the dotted line that would officialy commence the big budget film that has been long pending. This film is also touted to be Director Shankar's dream project. He had tried to rope in several actors and stars, that include Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan from Bollywood, and the last one to join the wagon being Ultimate Star Ajith Kumar. None of the reports were backed by official information from the production houses or the director himself. Now, that it is official, it is worth noting that Ayangaran Movies and upcoming production company in the north "Eros International" will produce this dream venture of Shankar. Shankar's regular AR Rahman will compose the score for this film. This film is also expected to have extra ordinary special effects and visual effects. This film will also become the costliest film to be produced in India. We wish the team all success and eagerly await the day this film wil hit the silver screen.

Hi music fans,

I have got special news for everybody here. Piano is one instrument that has caught us spell bound with its sound from time immemorial. Piano is an instrument that few have mastered and Mozart is one person who made the piano very popular in the 1960s. That piano is a string instrument is a popular misconception, not many know that it is really a percussion instrument by the way it works on the inside. The piano later not only was known as a music instrument but also as a social status symbol. To have a Grand Piano seated at the center of your drawing room attracts the income tax officials !
The piano is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard that produces sound by striking steel strings with felt hammers. The hammers immediately rebound allowing the strings to continue vibrating at their resonant frequencies. These vibrations are transmitted through a bridge to a sound board that amplifies them.
The piano, ever since, was known to be a matter of possession for prestige. Playing the piano is not something that comes easy to anyone and everyone. It calls for a high degree of penchant for liking and appreciation of music and also deft skills in understanding music theory and also reading of the musical notation. And, of course, mastering the piano demands superior co-ordination skills of the upper limbs that is the most common limiting factor for many wannabe pianists. A Pianist can find himself garnered with a decent profession at a night club or a Jazz club where the piano is a very important instrument that makes up for most of the melody along with the blowing fleet of instruments. The piano forms the backbone of Jazz melody and also blues and other popular forms of Latin and American modern music. It is still used in today's more popular modern Jazz and also in Metal Jazz. By the 1820s, the center of innovation had shifted to Paris, where the Érard firm manufactured pianos used by Chopin and Liszt. In 1821, Sebastien invented the double escapement action, which permitted a note to be repeated even if the key had not yet risen to its maximum vertical position. This facilitated rapid playing. When the invention became public, the double escapement action gradually became standard in grand pianos, and is still incorporated into all grand pianos currently produced. The grand piano is a huge instrument and is not usually portable. It is sometimes even hailed as a legacy that is carried over from one generation to the next. The tall vertically strung upright grand was arranged with the soundboard and bridges perpendicular to keys, and above them so that the strings did not extend to the floor. Diagonally strung Giraffe, pyramid and lyre pianos employed this principle in more evocatively shaped cases. The term was later revived by many manufacturers for advertising purposes.With so many royalties up its sleeve, the piano does not come at a very friendly price to the common man. Hence, buying a piano is a very tedious task when it comes to finding the right place and the right set of keys that suit your liking. You can find the best antique upright pianos
at the cheapest prices possible in the market. You can find the best of pianos here at competitive prices around the world. You will find several choices from which you can choose the best one that suits your taste. So, go get your keys right away !

California Wine Country Hotels

Hi travelers and travel lovers,

I recently paid a visit to the California Wine Country Hotels. I could not find words to describe the angelic experience I shared with the country. Thanks to the hotels that made my stay all the more exotic for me and my family. This grand, romantic B&B in Old Town Napa is in a stunning Victorian built in 1892. Rooms reflect that era, with rich tapestries and stunning gilded antiques; four have fireplaces, five have whirlpool tubs, and all feature queen-size brass, wood, or iron beds. Guests meet each evening in front of the roaring fireplace in the lower "tavern" parlor for wine and cheese. At other times, the family room is a perfect place to cuddle up and watch the large-screen TV. Bonuses include a gourmet breakfast each morning, port in every room, and VIP treatment at many local wineries.

Smokers over $400

If you have the cash to spend, these are the best smokers on the market.

the brave one enthralls you !

Hi fans,

Let me admit. Ever since I happened to see Silence Of the Lambs, I had become a raging fan of Jodie Foster. I also then happened to see all the films that she had done earlier including the frightening performance in Taxi Driver. Now, she is back with "the brave one" or rather "as the brave one " !! THE Central Park Jogger and Bernie Goetz meet "Death Wish" in post-9/11 New York in "The Brave One," an awkward concept put over by Jodie Foster's award-caliber performance and expert direction by Neil Jordan. The real-life jogger attack, Goetz's subway vigilante and the fictional adventures of Charles Bronson's character took place in the genuinely scary Manhattan of the '70s and '80s. But that Big Apple is a far cry from what has become - as Foster's character, a public radio personality named Erica puts it - "the safest big city in the world." It's pretty clear by this point that while Jordan is observing genre conventions that will please the popcorn crowd, he's trying to say something more profound about moral choices and the corrupting power of violence. ordan carefully avoids exploiting the violence in his most commercial film since "Interview With the Vampire," but all of his skill can't disguise the many coincidences underlying the script credited to Roderick Taylor, Bruce A. Taylor and Cynthia Mort.

The way-too-neat ending of "The Brave One" especially strains credulity, but it's worth watching for Foster's fiercely arresting performance.

The world today is simply so competitive that education and knowledge has become the most powerful tool to survive. Life does not forgive weakness, and this is something that History has always been teaching us and will always continue to. It is high time that we realized that talent without the necessary educational background can render the skills mercilessly and pathetically handicapped. Education not only provides students with in depth knowledge about the subject but also more information on how to handle the subject in the practical sense, in a way that could be put to use in the corresponding industries that will employ them, or rather, their skills. A talented person with the necessary educational background will teach him how to employ his skills more diligently which is very very important in this competitive world. Gone are the days
when you can just catch a bus from your small town and become a biggie just by exposing your talents. Today, your certificate speaks louder than what your verbal speech can convey.

Hi cricket fans again,

In Ganguly dismissal there is a great joke. MARK BENSON ASKING the decision to RICKY PONTING weather ganguly IS out ot not??? is ricky ponting is a third umpire or fourth umpire. to win the match aussie captain say its out only. its hectic to see these stupid happenings. the two umpires should be heavenly punished by ICC. or else no one can save the cricket. symonds is not at all a decent cricketer. even he knows that he is out he just standing. waitng for the umpire decison. after the day's play he is telling the he s out. third umpire also give him a chance to surrive when he s stumpped of by dhoni . this is indicates that ausiee cricket board give lot of money or land to those three umpires for the consequtive test wins. no need to win the test matches like this. when ever the test match played in australia all the umpires give the decison favorable to the aussie players. i dont know why they behaving like this. rahul dravid dismissal is also shamefull for gilchirst. i think him as a decent cricketer but even he know that is not out he s claiming for the umpire. buckor should be advise for the indian team is just to quit the tour against the idiotic aussies and return home .then only it will give a nose cut to CRICKET AUSTRALIA..NO NEED TO PLAY IN AUSSIE. THEY WILL WIN TEST MATCH NOT TO THEIR OWN TALLENT BUT BY HAVING UMPIRES ONLY....;icc should bring the technology into the cricket as soon as possible to save matches going for one side.

Best Reward Credit Cards

Hi people,

Credit Cards are something that have become ubiquitous in today's world, especially in the business arena. Several new Credit card offerers are blooming everyday with more and more attractive features and bonuses to choose from. When even choices become competitive and compelling, they only confuse and muddle up the customers more. As I had discussed more than a few times, money is not something that you can reap out of trees ! Its the result of a lot of hard work and toil, not for days, not for weeks, but for years together. Money has been one thing that has not been the privilege for everybody. It decides most of your stance in the society. The kind of impression your money makes, is simply more powerful than any other form of attraction. Its totally different when you get off a brand new BMW in front of your favorite star hotel and give a $50 note as a tip to your driver just for having taken you there on time, rather than arriving there in a hired cab and bargaining with the cabbie just because he asked for more than he initially demanded. I guess you can get the picture. Today, credit cards make a statement. When you pull out your credit card for making a payment, it does make an impact and says volumes about your financial strength. is one of the oldest and most successful online credit card comparison site on the net. The site elaborately provides you a review of all the top credit cards available in the market today comparing their features and privileges. You can find all your Best Reward Credit Cards here.

Australia beat India in Sydney thriller

Hi cricket fans,

Australia beat India by 122 runs in an amazing finish to the second Test in Sydney on Sunday to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and equal their own world record of 16 successive victories.

The tourists were faced with the daunting challenge of batting through 72 overs to salvage a draw on a turning Sydney Cricket Ground pitch and keep the series alive but came up agonisingly short.

They made no attempt at chasing down the 333 they had been set to win win after Australia had declared on 401-7 but held out realistic hopes of hanging on for draw when they started the second last over with three wickets in hand. He and Hussey, who made 145 not out in Australia's second innings, piled on the runs in the extended opening session to allow Ponting to declare at 401-7 and push for an unlikely victory. Kumble, who took eight wickets or the match, batted for more than two hours to make an unbeaten 45 and seemed to have saved his team when he was forced to watch the last three wickets fall from the non-strikers end. The Indians lost last week's first Test in Melbourne by 337 runs and cannot reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as Australia are the current holders.

Yoga Leg Exercises

Hi friends,

Yoga is one of the most celebrated forms of physical exercise. ogic leg raises are deceptively simple practices. They are tough to do, specially if you choose to either increase the duration in the final pose or increase the number of repeats in each pose. To do either you must have already practiced yoga for a while and reached an intermediate level of confidence and muscular stamina. But these poses are must-do for beginners too, since they work on the flexibility of the soft muscle called fascia. They also provide a subtle but definitive spinal traction which makes other poses, including advanced poses, easier to negotiate.

Even advanced practitioners cannot become complacent with these poses or stop doing them. In fact, they are ideal warm-ups for inversions and stretches, particularly for such poses like the plough pose (halasana) or paschimottanasana (forward bend).

These poses are part of the pawan muktasana series (energy/joint releasing poses) which prepare the practitioner by purifying, toning, strengthening and rejuvenating the body.

For weight loss, you must build stamina in the final pose. This may take a few weeks, months or years, depending on your current level of physical fitness and your regularity of practice with these poses. Learning to hold the pose longer will have a toning, body sculpting effect. Increasing the number of repeats, will also have similar effect.
