      Re-posting this here mostly just to keep a record of it. Forum posts have a way of disappearing over time.

      Topic: The purpose of this thread is to discuss common practices and strategies when utilizing multiple Xbox 360 systems within the same household.

      Relevant Data: I currently own three Xbox 360 units. Until now, my living situation has not allowed all the units to be set up at the same time. With a recent move, I am now able to have one console in the living room, one in the bedroom, and one set up and my six year old nephew's house so we can play Lego Star Wars and the like together. I now have the ability to play in the living room while the wife is sleeping, or move to the bedroom if she wants to use that room. I now find the need to have:

      A: My profile available at any of the three locations.

      B: My game saves available at any of the three locations.

      C: Access to DRM for my downloaded games and content at any of the three locations.

      Current Plan of Action: My current plan to overcome these three challenges is to utilize Microsoft's new Cloud Save option for games I may want to travel with. I will then move my profile over to a USB drive that can easily travel with me, eliminating the need for cumbersome profile recoveries. I plan to shift my DRM to my primary Xbox in the living room, and rely on Xbox live connectivity to allow me access to my content DRM elsewhere.

      Concerns: I have major concerns with all three aspects of this plan:

      A: I am aware that I can recover my Gamertag, but, being incredibly paranoid about information loss and not entirely trusting of the cloud, the thought of my profile on an easily lost or corrupted USB drive worries me. Can I back up the contents of my flashdrive to my computer for safe keeping, or will this violate the files and flag me as some kind of modder worthy of banning?

      B: I have seen the cloud save option, but have yet to try it. The only option seems to be to "Move" your save to cloud save, not copy. Does this actually move your save without leaving a local copy, and, if so, does this mean that internet or xbox live outages will prevent me from loading my game? In short, is it possible to copy a save to the cloud while maintaining a local copy? The same goes for moving a save to usb.

      C: You are only able to move you DRM once per year, and I have held off on transferring it for just that reason. If I load my profile on one of the other Xboxes, will I be able to redownload my content to that unit, regardless of where my DRM is linked? Even if the content is only available while my Gamertag is active and signed in to Xbox live, will I be able to download my content again on whatever Xbox I am on? I would hate to find that I try to go play in the bedroom and I don't have access to my DLC.


      Appeal: In this thread, I am looking for tips, tricks, strategies, and personal experiences of content and profile management across multiple Xbox systems. I know that the staff at Rooster Teeth deal with this problem on a daily basis and have made several references to it on the podcast. If a staff member would like to offer some advice on how this can be accomplished, the help would be greatly appreciated.

      Going Forward: I hope this sparks intelligent discussion about managing identities and DRM on the Xbox as well as on the web and in our daily lives. As our world becomes increasingly internet dependent, what strategies do you use to manage the seemingly unending string of usernames, passwords, profiles, and accounts we are now required to have?

      Thanks for your input.

      Preface: I have attempted to post this in the Xbox 360 forum, but apparently I do not have access for some reason. That being said, I would much rather have the input of the more seasoned members of the community, and less chaff from less serious posters. Again, I apologize for not posting this in a dedicated forum.

      So, I spent my NYE weekend driving this:

      Flashburn9004f03816eb6ad0.jpg

      Turns like shit, but burns rubber like a bitch. It is the original from Batman returns. It still runs, but sadly no missiles.

      I worked on the design of a "Dark Comic Themed' NYE party for a bunch of casino high rollers. This was one of the perks... as was this:

      Yep, we were in Denver for a couple days. What was your business there? I'm completely caught up, and man was it intense! The one thing I hate about being caught up, though, is that wait for next season. But, yeah their approach to zombies is really different and I really enjoy how the story is evolving.

      Colorado huh? I was just in Denver for work. It gets betwer. They take an approach to zombies that I have never seen before. I like the hive mind / pack mentality.

      I went to Colorado! It was great. I'm all caught up and ready to listen to the 2nd season finale. I really can't believe how great it is.

      They are allowed to have other models, sure, but what is the point? What more could they ask for, right?

      Haha, that is incredibly sweet. But don't worry, really. RT is allowed to use other models, I'm not bitter. I was just not expecting it, and when drunk, made me write that journal (more in a joking manner). So, I am okay! But thanks for the group, it made me smile.

      It's neat software (still in beta), a lot like a more sophisticated version of Google Sketchup (free modeling software)....mainly fancier menu system plus the ability to constrain objects. Will get to play with it at work this afternoon. So far, if a .dwg file has a lot of 2D work to sort out and a fair bit of 3D, it'll crash or just bog down. Otherwise, .dwg files with 3D only can be opened just fine. Trying to see how I can make this work, at work.

      The trip back was fine. Work has been stupid busy since I've been back. Luckily I've been able to stay home. I had a crew in Seattle and one in Biloxi this weedend. I stayed here and handled 3 different dance institute's shows. This week I am doing a bunch of leg work for Essence Fest. Woohoo.

      I don't mind it so much. It breaks up the monotony. We have seasons. Right now we are in the middle of a run of 15 dance companies. Some better than others. They range between 10 and 50 thousand. The difference really shows. Some are really tallented. Some are just hard to sit through.

      I made the comment that she gripes about people my age, more often than she should....relating her 'high' BP to her own frustrations with "us". She got pissy about it and said that she wants a truce, "I'll stop talking about people your age, if you stop talking to me like I'm stupid."

      I never talk to her like she's an idiot, I asked for examples, she couldn't supply any. I let it go and finished up my day.

      (About the recitals) Glad I work in a sort of corporate world, we don't deal with individuals on any sort of regular basis. But I have a sister who used to dance, so I know the pain you feel. Granted I was about 12 then.
