    easy child's PS3 broke. It's dead. Kaput.

    It's been a big bone of contention between him and DF. When he wasn't working (he started a job this week - thank God), he was on that thing ALL the time.

    I'd go in to talk to him and he'd be playing on line with the bluetooth so he could talk to people and he'd get really annoyed if I interrupted him. AND the thing throws of so much heat and he always has his door closed, so he'd get hot and turn the thermostat down and I wouldn't realize it until I was freezing.

    I asked him if he was starting to twitch. :tongue:

    He said he thinks it's the hard drive and his friend can replace it, but he'll lose everything he's ever done. I asked him again if he was starting to twitch.

    He's online "investigating" the cause of the problem. *giggle*

    I'm sure DF is way happier than she's letting him know. :rofl:

    Maybe DF will get super lucky and it will be something that can't be fixed. lol Of course there will be withdrawal symptoms for a while.........;)

    No, if it can't be fixed he'll be saving up for a new one. When his first drum set for rock band died, he was hard to live with. I was really happy when DF got him a new set. For about 5 minutes...til the banging started.

    I guess I shouldn't be so happy about it. I would start to twitch without internet. And he was *starting* to get better about not playing when she's home.

    But, it still made me giggle.

    He took it to a friend tonight who is going to try to fix it.

    What is worse, having the car break down or the computer? It is a toss up. If the car breaks down the internet better work, and vice versa.

    It's way worse to have the computer break down! Way worse!
