I hate incompetent people. I’m sick and tired of people who don’t give a shit and just do a crap half-arsed job all the time. Whatever happened to striving for excellence, in everything that we do? Be confident in all that you do, but please, learn to do it well.
I also hate mediocrity. I would in the end rather you aim high, genuinely try and then fail, instead of aiming for the bare minimum and not trying at all. At least in the former, you have a chance of do something great. Too many people choose the latter option and are thus destined to mediocrity. In fact, the world seems increasingly full of them.
Please, don’t give up. Don’t be one of them.

Does Digital Kaleidoscope look just a little odd, but you can’t pick what it is? Don’t worry, it’s not just you! I’ve made the content column 45 px wider (now 500 px wide) so that it’s easier for me to post Flickr photos in blog entries. And if you’re still playing Spot the Difference, it now displays 6 of my latest featured Flickr images at the top (up from 5). This means that some older posts featuring images and embedded videos may look slightly odd — sorry. If I can be bothered, I’ll fix them someday.
It’s about time. Microsoft has finally acknowledged that there are some serious issues with the reliability of the Xbox 360, with an unusually large number of defects and returns of consoles that display the dreaded red ring of death.
Gamerscore Blog is reporting that Xbox.com has posted an open letter from Peter Moore announcing that effective immediately, all Xbox 360s worldwide are covered by a warranty extension to three years for any red ring of death issue. They are also going to do the right thing by existing console owners who have already paid for out-of-warranty repairs by offering them a refund.
You’ve spoken, and we’ve heard you. Good service and a good customer experience are areas of the business that we care deeply about. And frankly, we’ve not been doing a good enough job.
If we have let any of you down in the experience you have had with your Xbox 360, we sincerely apologize. We are taking responsibility and are making these changes to ensure that every Xbox 360 owner continues to have a great experience.
