The new Xbox Live Operations blog
has word that Xbox Live is now back up and running after taking a 24 hour siesta for expansion, feature infrastructure, and a few tweaks here and there. Some people are reporting increased performance in the menus but I haven't had a chance to fire up my Xbox yet today. You may now return to your regularly scheduled homophobic and misogynistic rants and raves while you frag/get fragged online in Halo 3
or whatever shooter you're playing.
