Dropped the 360 off to be shipped today. Second-day air. Yeah, it was a little expensive, but a) I'm not paying for the actual repairs and b) we're in four-day ground territory, which means that it's possible they'd receive the console after the warranty expires. I'd rather not take any chances.
The Pak Mail place had an office cat. Very cool. Rather like one of mine, except bigger. This one was very interested in the paperwork (probably because the box was closed - can you think of a better business for an office cat than a shipping place? Boxes, bubble wrap ...), especially when I had to sign something.
