Well, today is the day, August 19. The day MicroSoft said my Power Supply and new camera will arrive, hopefully they wont screw me over again like they did a month ago. I already lost precious achievement gaining time already and school starts in about two weeks. Sorry I haven't updated the blog in a while, I was too busy on Habbo Hotel Canada, trying to get people to buy the furniture (Read through the terms and conditions, it didn't say I couldn't do that). So yeah, I don't have much to put on here today. But if my package doesn't arrive, hopefully I'll be able to get a free headset or what you have suggested in the polls (3 way tie so far)
I have nothing really interesting to put on my blog today, so instead I'll just put up my story with MicroSoft Customer Services Department :s though I highly doubt that you all would really give a shizzle >_< I think some of us already know how crappy their service is.
Well, I got off the phone with Microsoft. Apparently the last three Customer Service Agents didn't tell me I had to send in my old Power Brick to get the new one which I paid $99 CAD for. Back when I got from the Philippines around July 17 I called Microsoft, the first agent I called said "What you do is buy the Xbox 360 warranty for $99, then we will send you a new power supply for free and you will have a 1 Year Warranty for your Xbox 360", I said thanks and that was the end for that call. Two days later I called and I told the agent I wanted to buy the warranty so I could get my Power Brick, he said that the Warranty only covered the Xbox 360, not the power brick and the Power Brick is $89 which is roughly about $90. So I said I would buy it, he puts me on hold and about 15 minutes later after getting sick of Listening to the Halo 3 music with the Volume just going up and down the Billing Agent picks up, so I tell her the Credit Card info and she told me "Your power supply should be there in 10-12 business days". So, 12 Business days passed (Not counting Sundays) and I call again, this time some girl called Chloe picked up, I told her what was going on. She apologized and said to wait another 10-12 business days and if I still don't get it call us again and WE WILL talk to our supervisor about it, I was just thinking to myself "What the fudge? The customer should be talking to the Supervisor about it". Anyways I thank her for the information, then two days ago (I forget how many days have passed) I call, ask for a supervisor, the guy (an Australian this time) says I will be put on hold for 10 minutes. It was actually about 20-25 minutes, the music was fudgeing annoying, not even that Halo 3 stuff. So, eventually (Phone Timer was at 36 minutes) the supervisor picks up, I tell him my Reference number. He says that the package data was set to "Waiting" then he said "You have to send in your Xbox 360 Power Supply in order for us to send you a new one" (Once again, WTF? I paid for the fudgeing power brick that cost me 99 fudgeing dollars! Why the fudge should I have to send the old fudgeing one in when I paid for that fudgeing one as well?), I told him the last 3 people didn't tell me that so he apologized and said I wouldn't have to send my Power Supply in (Probably out of Sympathy.. or my Anger :s ), so now they are sending me the package for real, and I get a Free Xbox Live Vision Camera, if It doesn't arrive by the 19th of August they said to call again, hopefully I will be able to get a new Headset or a Xbox Live Gold Card thrown in to sweeten the deal if it doesn't arrive :o
If it doesn't arrive and they won't give me the Gold Card or a Headset (Wasn't even available in the Compensation I was eligable for, just some stuff I need). What should I get if I am able to receive another item?
- Project Gotham Racing 3
- Viva Pinata: Party Animals
- Xbox Live Vision Camera
- 64 MB Memory Unit
- Wireless Controller
- Rechargable Battery Pack
- Universal Remote (Compatible with 360, TV and DVD Player)
This was the list that the Supervisor gave me. So I am unsure if there are more options available.
Well, day two of the creation of my blog is here, assuming you count Midnight a new day instead of when you wake up at 5 AM and had your Coffee and are heading to work. Thinking of getting rid of my laptop and getting a new Desktop PC with Windows Vista so I can play Halo 2 and get some Achievements for my Gamertag Jedediah18. I had to do it the process of deleting all of my personal files manually, basically what I did was un-install some crap on my computer. Made a new administrator account, deleted my old. For some reason it transfered the files in My Documents as well as Desktop to the New Administrator even though I said no. It put everything in one folder and put it in Documents and Settings. But still, atleast I was able to finally delete that Swiftswitch install program that was putting Adware on my computer :s. Originally my Computer's free space was about 37%. Now I bumped it up to around 72% mainly by deleting my collection of South Park Episodes (About 2.7 Gigs) and Maplestory (1.5 Gigs). Had to re-install and Un-install some game programs such as Matrix: Path of Neo (Removed it because of a Riskware infection, 99/100 that it was spyware according to F-Secure, file name was MatrixW3S12.Bin or something like that) and The Matrix Online because the Add and Remove program wouldn't take it out as it couldn't find the file. Back then I prefered deleting the files myself just for the satisfaction that I have a huge recycle bin to make it seem like I was actually doing something. This Blog thing is actually pretty fun if I am doing it correctly, just posting some shizzle about what I've done lately allows me to memorize some other stuff so I don't have to keep the events of 1/8th of the day in my head.
So, yeah. A few of you wanted me to get a blog. So here it is, this is my first Blog. I honestly don't know what the Hell I'm supposed to do on it, so I'll just give you a little information about myself to make it look like I know what I'm doing.
My name is Jedediah, I live in British Columbia, Canada about 6 hours away from Vancouver. My Igloo is doing very fine, as well as my Oil Powered 42" HDTV :s I am somewhat of a gamer, I started playing Neopets because it was over 3 weeks since Microsoft said they would give me a new Power Brick for my 360 ( I kind of shoved 240 Volts of electricity into the last one >_< ). I have over 200,000 NP on it and I have been playing for 1-2 Weeks. I called Microsoft about the problem, they said I was supposed to send me old one in (I was like WTF?). I told him the last 3 people didn't tell me that so now I don't have to send mine in, my 360 Power Brick should be here on the 19th AND I get a free Xbox Live Vision Camera for free (I think it's valued at $39.99 at Blockbuster). Finally I will be able to get that achievement in Rainbow Six Vegas if I ever choose to rent that game again. Also, I am somewhat of a Completionist whore on video games. I'm a fan of the Machinima done by DigitalPh33r (DigitalPh33r.Blogspot.com) such as Arby 'n' the Chief and Deus Ex Machina as well as "It's a Wonderful Live". My Gamertag on Xbox Live is Jedediah18 as I am to damn lazy to think of a creative name.
My Headset is broken, so if you want to play with me, just hope that I can hear what your saying through the speakers. When I get my Live Subscription online again I am up for playing some Halo 3 (I need to get 70 XP Anyways) as well as GTA IV. Maybe just maybe for COD 4. Even though my Gamertag doesn't say it, I also have the XBLA Game "Texas Hold 'em" the only reason I don't have the game record saved on my GT is because I never got all the achievements on my Original Gamertag. If you want to e-mail me about some stuff and I am not on Sal's RuneScape Forum, feel free to contact me . So, that's about it for right now I hope that will keep you happy until I decide how to work this thing and mess with the settings a bit.
P.S. If ANYONE knows where I can get the game Dead Rising, or if anyone is willing to sell it to me for less than $30 CAD let me know, I seriously love that game.
