Geng, thanks for the feedback, mate, I appreciate it.
I *DID* go through the process of backing up the entire HDD (and restored it after I went through Sony's scripted little troubleshooting procedure BS) - luckily I had an old 12gb external USB drive sitting around. (Sometimes I'm glad I'm a nerd). But I also took the precaution of copying my saved games on a separate USB stick as well. If worse comes to worst, I've also copied my savegames onto my Bro-in-lo's PS3 if I get really desperate.
In the meantime, with a new (real) bub in the house, I'm sure I'll be able to find something
to do while the black shiny box is being fixed.
It's funny, the thing that really
pisses me is that I'm going to have to wait
to play the new Burnout content coming out on the 10th
Anyhoo, the beasty was posted off this afternoon. This means by my reckoning, working on the premise they'll receive it Monday, I should have it back the week starting August 4.
Meantime, I've adopted a commemorative .sig.
