Major Nelson out for a week

I wanted to let you know that I am headed out of town this week for vacation/holiday. I’ll be sailing the high seas on a cruise, so my online time will be limited. That means a few things:

  • The updates here on the blog will be sparse until I return. In the meantime, litheon may jump in and make a post or two as needed.
  • Will I be Tweeting? Probably a little bit through out the week, but much less than normal.
  • I won’t be reading or responding to email until I return.
  • No podcasts for Sunday July 3rd or the 10th. We’ll record a show when I return and get that posted as quickly as possible since we’ll probably have a lot to discuss by then.

If you need help with your Xbox 360 or Xbox LIVE, be sure to ask our award winning Twitter Support team @xboxsupport They’re ready to help.

That’s pretty much what’s up. Enjoy your gaming and I’ll be back soon.

    Have fun, I do truly follow you for Xbox and more. Hopefully you will get to my XBox years question when you get back. (is a 6 on xboxlive profile a high number?)

    • http://twitter.com/seekul Luke Es

      Is 6 a high number? Really? Well LIVE turns 10 pretty soon, so 6 is 60% of the way there, and it means about $300 spent on Gold subscriptions. So that’s a high number.

      Damn. I love my 360 and loved my Xbox, but there’s no way there were enough good online games every single year for six years straight to justify paying for Live.

    I think we know what a “vacation/holiday” is.

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      Well considering that depending on where you live, it may be known as something different I took no chances.

      Was going to say the same exact thing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone on any blog or site link directly to a ‘vacation’ page on Wikipedia, unless of course the site is all about taking vacations.

      lol…just kidding, Major!

        It might have been for Major, in case he forgot what a vacation is. Or to remind us what the definition is for him, since so many people bring their work on vacation these days!

    Take a month.  Trust me, there won’t be much to talk about (or miss) on the 360 side of things.

      I agree. Take the month off. Have fun Major.

    Major Nelson is going away? Look at what happened when he was at E3, we didn’t get Deal Of The Week for two weeks, apparently they can’t do anything without him around, so that’s just great, thanks.

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      He also posted this week’s deals last week.

    I have a question I have been playing Dragon Age 2 and several times on and off XBOX LIVE 
    Now since the last update I have lost the ability to be able to chose my own name and I cannot give my Dog a name either when I begin a new game

  • ElektroDragon

    Heh, so nice that Sony can pay an entire staff of folks to update their blog.  Must be where all the security money went.  Enjoy your vacation.
