An earth shattering kaboom

I’ve spent the last 24 hours without a computer (my PDA doesn’t count). On Friday evening I started my PC and after 30 seconds there was a loud pop, the screen went dark and smoke drifted up from underneath my desk. A few minutes and the sacrifice of a second 5 amp fuse later and I’d confirmed that I’d fried my power supply. I’ve just finished rebuilding the machine in a new case with a new PSU. Ah, sweet, sweet broadband. Last night I nearly watched Big Brother out of desparation but I was saved by a pile of unwatched DVDs at the last moment.
