That's great news! Congratulations to him!

Concerning my Christmas, I got:

Mum's place
* Magic Bullet food processor - I know a few people with them and they're great!
* Nice shirt
* Towel
* Some money

Dad's place
* Tower fan
* Some coffee cup sets
* Books Guiness 2008 and Chaser book

Other people
* Brother - Sandwhich toaster / press
* Grandparents - $$ Money $$
* Uncle - 6 pack of 440ml sized Jim Beam and Cola

All up I am happy, I got lots of useful things for my new flat and with the money that I got I am going to put it towards a 2 or 3 seater lounge, because at the moment the only thing I have to sit on is my computer chair and the seats around my table.

I also need a fridge (I only have a bar fridge at the moment) so I am unsure whether I should put the money towards that instead.

This year my family decided to do one of those "family gift" type things. We all chipped in and bought a 1080p 40" Sony Bravia HDTV and a Sony 5.1 dolby digital audio system + 5 disc DVD player. We mounted it on the wall in the basement we just finished and ran all wires in the walls so its a very clean setup. I'm a happy guy :mrgreen:

Sounds really nice, I am VERY tempted to get a Sony Bravia TV because at the moment Sony are offering a free PS3 with any HD Bravia TV.

Nothing now, because I had received my gift a month early.

I'm guessing you've probably already heard this, but apparently you got ripped off.

Have you heard anything about whether you're going to be able to trade it in for the fixed version when it's released next week?

Early next year you will be able to send them in and get a free replacement, I never wouldve noticed the difference if no one said anything.

Yeah I heard about that. I haven't really noticed any audio troubles, then again I just have my Wii audio going into a 4 speaker stereo. It doesn't sound bad at all to me.

I made an account on the Guitar Hero community website, told them to send me emails and everything. I also linked it with my game so I should be all set to receive my replacement.

At my cafe we have this Carbon Waffle mix that we use, it is extremely good.
http://www.amazon.com/Golden-Malted-Pan ... B000J4FF2A
Not that item exactly, but just to get an idea, we get ours in bags from the company direct.

But for Christmas I got about $200 towards my TV, Orange Box for Xbox 360, Quite a lot of money from family, well more then I was expecting. I think it was like $200 or so. I also made quite a nice bit of tips on Christmas Eve for only working 6 hours I got $35 bucks in tips. Humm.. didn't really get anything else, my mom drove me to 5 Gamestops to FINALLY find a damn Hori 360 Arcade stick, I will also probably buy Crackdown,Dead or Alive 3, as well as another cheap 360 game, now that they have a buy 2 used get one free.

Merry late Christmas to everyone too.
