Red Ring of Death and Firefox

My neighbours may be happy but I'm not. I hadn't bashed out more than a practise session or two on Rock Band 2 when my Xbox 360 fizzed out. I had the dreaded Red Ring of Death (RRoD).

After a little while of poking around online I found the UK support section of Microsoft's website and completed the online instructions. The RRoD is a known issue and Microsoft has (kindly) given most of the world a three year extended warrenty to fix the issue.

I filled in the forms needed to coordinate with myself, Microsoft and UPS. One catch; I was using FireFox. See if you can make out the shipping address from this screen shot.



The good news is that the follow up email message from Microsoft explains everything. Now all I need to do is find a suitable box and arrange for UPS.
