A note for those who haven't realised it yet:

I was joking about the virus thing. Pshuh. As if the link to a Microsoft page dealing with 'Stupid Virus Hoaxes' didn't give that away...

Good to hear you're back up and running again, PT. Ignore these fools and their Mac malcontent.

edit: Link to a Microsoft link? What the fuck am I on about? I hate Mondays.

EeeeeeeeeeeeeeEE jinxed!!!!!

No, I've only got a new case.... the Frankenstein style reassemblege and electricity "It's Aliiiiiive" will only happen when I get home..... the motherboard could still be blown as far as I know.

I WAS wondering if it was possible to overload a PSU with software though, you scamp.....

Well, unless some poor bugger's got a directly software-controlled PSU (eww), the only way would be to know exactly how much power your system uses, be using a PSU right on the knuckle, then use a system of calls deliberately designed to cause as high a level of power usage as possible (constant high-level DVD activity, constant hard drive activity, maxed-out processor usage - preferably complex math just to keep all of it running, constant pointless signals along USB connectors, and so on). I suppose then it'd be possible, but it's a lot of work.

It's easier just to tell the printer to clean the print head 17x10^40 times. Heh.

Thank you baby Jesus!

Sadly a starving child in Africa had to do without a prayer while baby Jesus told me to blow on my RAM.
