SUBJECT:  Xbox 360 wireless controller

MonkeyBoy received an Xbox Kinect for Christmas, but hasn’t been able to use it as his bedroom (where the Xbox was) did not have enough space for it to work properly.  Late this afternoon, after hours of bugging asking me, we moved the whole configuration to the living room.  I got to spend a good 30 to 45 minutes figuring out how to get everything re-connected and in working order.  I must say, I done good – there was minimal cursing and it worked the 1st time we turned it on.  It might be better having it in the living room – since it’s connected to the family TV it will really limit the amount of time he gets to spend on it, plus parental supervision will be easier.  I don’t think he thought of that before asking to move the system.
