29 for a brand new 145w AT PSU.
Seems a bit pricey.

0.99 and 8.99 both 200 watt with seven days to go on the bidding.

You sure it wasn't just the static from the screen pulling your hair slightly?

Christ, be careful doing that. CRT gubbins holds massive charges in the capacitors and all that stuff in there. It's quite dangerous....

Well, you don't have a great track record what with breaking and badly repairing things, so be careful is all I'm saying, don't go hurting yourself and breaking your stuff.

Sellotape might be a good temporary fix for some computer hardware, but I doubt it would be quite as affective on a fried Steve!

I suppose it could be used to attach the lid to my coffin

Opening and messing inside a CRT screen up is one thing I would never do - heard too many stories of TV technicians (who should know what they're doing) getting killed.

Well, if the monitor/TV is not going to be opened, there is no possibility of any problems being fixed. e.g., if I hadn't have opened it, I wouldn't have been able to put a new switch in my 8833 (230V!!!!!!).

It's fine as long as you know which bits to not touch.

And if you don't know what bits to touch you'll soon find out when you touch them.

As mentioned a few times in the past, I once had an old PC that I used with a monitor that had no case! I used to be able to feel the magnetic field coming from it while in use. I also touched something I shouldn't one day and I was quite lucky because it just made my finger numb for a few minutes!
