    PIF - XBox 360 S

    Amongst a few IT/Gadget things handed to me today by a friend in my travels was a 2013 XBox 360 S left behind by a non paying tenant last year

    Though i am a grown and proper man and do not play games, and couldnt afford the $90 a pop for games even if i did, i realise someone out there may not be as evolved and either want this as a spare or a 2nd unit.

    Its of no use to me, especially since i thought ill just whack linux on it and run it as a squid box, so i can move squid for windows off my desktop pc, but no, due to the bonkers hypervisor setup MS uses on XBoxes, one would have to do a bunch of soldering/nand rewriting, and my eyes glazed over...

    So if theres any interest, anyone who wants it can have it, postage at your expense if not in sydney. Sydneysiders can arrange a catchup to pick it up if theyre reasonably clsoe to the city.

    It is the unit and power supply itself, no controllers no games, its as is, no returnsies, this is not a sale....

    Tested as booting and able to connect to my wireless network and play movies from my desktop PC, so im assuming does the gamey gamey shite as well.

    Unit will be factory reset before sending

    Any questions, let me know

    I'd love it as I'm a huge gamer but it seems D1git has first dibs. If that falls through let me know as I would be super excited to get one.

    The smart thing to do would have been to not say a word after you saw D1git nabbed it, because now you've outed yourself as a gamer, and as a result, i must think less of you... :P

    Yep i was going to throw that into the mix and see what pans out as the most reasonable.

    Lol, i lugged the Xbox and a 20" Samsung LED home past the Post Office, so no dramas going back down that way on monday
