My Xbox has been acting funny recently. After calling and not being able to resolve the issue, Microsoft sent me a box to send it in. The Microsoft tech asked if I had a red circle in the place of the normal green. I told him, I knew about the Red Circle of Death, but it wasn’t the case here. Turns out, after hanging up I tried turning on the machine one more time. This time, it was all red.

The ‘Red Circle of Death’ is a play on the ‘Blue Screen of Death‘ which I’m sure all Windows users have experienced. Well, I don’t think I’ve seen it with XP, but I’m sure the Blue Screen of Death is still alive.
