Now with More Networking

We finally got an ethernet line run down next to the large flat panel display. The Xbox 360 is online and ready to go (though the PS3 still doesn't connect properly). So if you want to play online Halo 3 on the large 46" screen, you can!

We also added a new Nintendo DSi this week, for your handheld gaming pleasure.

Update: Forgot to mention that the PS3 is now networked as well.

Little Power Surges

Little power surges/spikes were running through campus today, including the Duderstadt Center where the game archive lives.

Luckily we have a couple of back-up base stations, so all is well.
