Online Misunderstandings

It's funny how you can post something online and mean one thing but others have a completely different understanding and the rumours start.

Yesterday I posted this status update on Facebook

My friend Todd got it

Melissa did not

Then the phone calls came:

"Is everything okay? We were worried."

So we posted a couple of clarifications:

The Yellow Light Of Death is an issue with the Playstation 3 system that basically kills it. It can be fixed by Sony for $200 or it can be fixed at home with a guarantee that it will probably break again and again.

For us it was a very sad day, after 3 years it died right in the middle of Caitlyn's Baby Einstein movie. What makes me sadder still is that because Brock just had to have the thing when it first came out he paid over $600 for it. That's $200 per year for a game :(   

So lesson for next time, when making status updates, don't assume everyone knows what you're talking about.
