well looks like mod detection has been implemented with live.have been unable to get online since tuesday and hacker boards are humming with live junkies jonesing for a fix.many different theories abound...personally i decided to sell my modded xbox(for profit!) because it's not worth the hassle in my opinion,and with the great deals on right now i'm getting a new box and some cash.unfortunatly i will lose my beautifull gold and silver custom bike,ahh well another afternoon lost rebuilding a custom bike. so anyone considering a mod make sure you put in a switch(i didn't) and cross your fingers. off to shop.see you online tonite(i hope). peace. p.s. lectures not required thanks.
