    Ok, I know that if you sit and listen to the Xbox dashboard, it has many interesting things to say...

    Trust me, I've done it...it was a boring day...

    but I got one question, possibly for someone who speaks French. When you go to the settings section on the dashboard, then choose Language, it brings up the screen, but as it does, it say something in which, to my ears, sounds like French.

    What is it saying, or am I just going crazy?

    I don't think you're crazy. My Xbox talks to me all the time. For instance, just yesterday it told me to kill my next door neighbor because she is the antichrist. I knew this was wrong, though. It isn't my neighbor who is the antichrist, it's her ten-year-old son who is. Good thing I figured that out, otherwise I might have killed the wrong person. Sometimes the Xbox speaks to you in a kind of code, giving you part of the answers, but you have to figure out the rest yourself.

    Glad you guys got the joke, Joel and Jay. I was afraid people wouldn't get my sense of humor.

    I don't want to hijack this thread, however. So can anyone help answer Mark bk's question? I don't speak French or I'd take a shot at it.

    ok, after turning up the volume, and listening carefully, I've come to the conclusion that the voice is not French, but possibly German...

    beats me...

    anyone speak German then?

    I speak French, and have passable knowledge of German, so I'll check it out for you. After turning the volume all the way up and listening a few times, the only thing I can catch is possibly 'neuf cent,' or 900, at the very end. I'll listen to it some more to see if I can understand anything else.
