Hey..I'm leaving for the beach for 10 days. Figure I'll run an extension cord and a spliced cat6 cable from the house down to the water so I can enjoy the rays and the frags at the same time. Do you think sand and salt water will be bad for it? Also, should I apply any type of sunscreen to my case or monitor, maybe some Armor-All or something....? Now what games should I bring, perhaps I can get a good surfing simulator and actually pretend I can stand up on the board without getting the wind knocked out of me and swallowing a gallon of sea water.......hmmm. Does Microsoft make beach towels? wish me luck -see what happens when you're bored at work on the Friday before u leave!
