My XBox 360 has died. Long live my XBox 360!

I've fallen victim to the flashing red lights of doom. 
Yes, Virginia, my Xbox 360 has died.  And let me just say requiring $129
to fix a known manufacturing issue after 90 days is a total rip.  However
I have my stick it to Microsoft card in the form of a 1 year service plan
purchased with my Xbox.  So I’m off to find a service center and
renew my service contract!


IE7 x64 seems to be more stable

I guess uninstalling everything but the kitchen sink must have helped.
Seriously, I think uninstalling Google desktop did the trick. Never before
was I able to run IE7 x64 for more than a few minutes without it crashing.
I've now been running it over about 15 minutes, using multiple tabs, and
otherwise abusing it. No crash.

The funny part is that Outlook 2007 seems faster as well! Now if MS would
just come out with an x64 version of WDS I would be set.

Where did the status bar go?

Visual Studio 2005 seems to work perfectly under
Vista beta 2 but for some reason it no longer has a status bar.



Anyone know why this is?
