Nerdcore Halo Thing

"Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you."

~ Fry, Futurama

This story is simultaneously groan-worthy and strangely heartwarming.

Apparently, Xbox LIVE has discontinued support for Halo 2 on April 15th. Players weren't automatically disconnected, however, and several have been hanging on to the last vestiges of their online world by keeping their systems up and running and logged in as long as possible.

Ah, the resiliency of the nerd spirit . . .
