After a week of whining, I found out a way to get the wife to agree to let me buy an new Xbox 360 while my previous one is getting the spa treatment in McAllen, TX.

The scene:  I’m watching TV in the living room. The wife turns the corner to go into the bedroom.  She sees what’s on the computer screen.  Her eyes go wide with horror as realization dawns – I’m downloading the  World of Warcraft trial. (“Do not pass go! Go directly to Wal-Mart and get a 360!”).

I’ve downloaded the 3+ GB installer last night, and now it’s pulling in the five patches I need to start playing, themselves totalling about 1 GB.  Blizzard, your install procedures are officially arse.
