    Carpet traps heat, yeah. Cardboard is good; a hardcover book might be btteer. Best is to have it upright with some space on either side, if you can stand the look of it. What’s real important is that the monstrous power brick (which is the REAL culprit, a lot of the time) is not on carpet and has some breathing room.Yes, everybody loves CoD4. Everybody except my real life friends, who do not care, so I can’t borrow it, d’oh! (Well, I suppose I could borrow the PS3 version, but I very much dislike the Dual Shock for FPS gaming.) I just can’t get excited about “modern warfare” and I’ve no interest in the multiplayer. And it seems complicated. I’m surprised somebody suggested it as the “learn FPSs” game!Santa Barbara does not strike me as the sort of town where the parents would ever allow their libraries to carry video games. (Did you check the Goleta branch?) I’ve read Game Over. It was actually okay, despite the usual spattering of incorrect trivial facts, and was much less incendiary than the full title (likely imposed by the publisher) would imply.

    Hi Lisa, I tried to learn when I was 16, parents paid for lonsess and bought me a nice used Ovation but I just wanted to be able to play, I didn’t want to take the time to learn. I wanted to play hip songs not the notes of twinkle, twinkle little star, so I gave it up.Now that I am 46 my priorities have changed. I will never be in a band of any kind and I may never be Stevie Ray, but I do know that I have the rest of my life to learn and I am just enjoying the journey.I wished I had stuck with it, but now since I am doing it for me, for the self satisfaction and not to impress anyone else in a way it is much easier.My memory isn’t very good anymore, but I find my patience is 10 times what it was so the learning is easier.Thanks for everything because it has a lot to do with you and all the other instructors over at Guitar Tricks that truly make this journey much more pleasurable.Jaime
