ahh, long live the classic Xbox. I still tinker with mine (5) to this day, have installed double ram and the LGE drive upgrade in addition to the usual stuff.

ROFLs . Reminds me of a hack that come out for one of those "be a clever mac programmer" competitions. At least I think it was from out of one of those.

It turned everything on your mac screen so it was rendered from ASCII. In real time.Or was so it was rendered out of static ? *shrugs*
