    Nah, not worth it. the spider would be dead before it even takes 2 steps forward. strapping a small 2mm by 2mm cube of C4 to them would be fun. and it would make a nice little distraction

    :roll: I'm not buying; I'm repossessing...
    I only repossess from businesses, not from people like you and I. The company I work for does repossess from people too, but I'm not considered big enough to deal with the clients. All the other employees are body-builders.
    Just had a quick bath so I get an extra half hour in bed, but in true techie fashion, that half hour is now being spent checking TPU :rockout:

    watercooled, he only turns up when he wants to sell something and then disappears when the item breaks, ignoring all PM's. I'm sure I remember him mentioning "will help with any RMA/returns"...
    I certainly don't take no bull, but that's because of 6 years of marriage :roll:

    Yup :p I don't like dirty work. I keep a pack of wet wipes in my workbag so I can clean the steering wheel... Schizophrenic OCD ADHD cleano-freak FTW :rockout: :laugh:

    I've been in a 1969 e-type 2+2 straight six, belonged to a solicitor, he bought it new in 1969. His wife calls it his other wife lol. Was a lovely car.

    Lmfao, bed time? Since when? Trust you to leave when I come on you part-time sugarpuff :roll:

    Hey HUSKIE what did you do to get the PS3 working mate? How long has it been running for? I've only recently heard of the PS3 failures as I never took any notice of them at all, it wasn't until a few weeks back I found out about the "yellow light" error, whatever the hell that is :D

    Hey all, and time for me to add this club to my list! How're you all doing?

    Hi Lee, Well i did took the cpu chip away from the mainboard then i've Cleaned as well. It's really hard to fix it if you dunno how to use Heat gun and 30 watts of soldering IRON with liquid flux.. until now ps3 is still running very well mate. after i bought from MP i think last month. DUE to hot cpu cause of YLOD of PS3...

    Thanks mate, I'm familiar with circuits and such, although give me a heat gun, you'd better run haha! :roll:

    I'm not that bad really with heat guns, it's solders I'm bad with, never really tried them and don't like them because they make my eyes sting... :(

    It's great that it's running smooth as a bell, send me a PM and I can speak with you about adding on PS Network as friends, although I only play on the weekends as I leave the PS3 down at my partners as I have the Xbox 360 at mine :rockout:

    So most of the YLOD are hot cpu's? A mate I work with part time at the computer shop (the guy actually owns the company hehe) he's tried fixing his old chunky version afew times and had it running a each time but it got progressively worse as time went on, would you say that the way you fixed the one you bought would work on his? I don't think he's re-routed the solder to be fair, but I wouldn't know unless I ask him, I'll do that tomorrow if you like though?
