Recently they totally discontinued Xbox Live service for the original Xbox. I have a 360, so I play most of the new (and old) games on that, but I have this original Xbox sitting around not doing much. The DVD drive is a little funky and it's not good at playing DVDs or certain games much anymore. It's useful for Halo deathmatch with the 360 when I have people over, but that's about it. So I rewired it. Thanks to the efforts of a bunch of juvenile delinquents the world over, I was able to hack my Xbox and put XBMC on it. Now I can stream videos from my home theater PC in the living room to the dinky TV in the bedroom. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg of new life that's been breathed into my poor old Xbox. FOCUS: When have you taken something and 'rewired it' to suit a different purpose? How did it go for you? Did you impress your friends?
