    StuKeith, how did you manage to get a shock? I've plugged in leads to PSU's before with the power on and all it does is make a crackle sound??

    I'm truly shocked (if you'll mind the pun) that you lot have been cooking yourselves! I've never been shocked badly, but I'm totally paranoid about such stuff as I wouldn't want any small current going across my heart! Perhaps I'm a wuss, I feel so left out.

    I have been shocked by this game though and it hurts bad! It's such a laugh, especially while you're drinking a few beers in your local pub! LOL!

    I was doing some more to the A500/PC conversion. I have taken the 3 pin plug adapter out and I was holding the back of it while plugging the mains lead in, so basicly i was touching the live wire of the kettle lead!

    I was also sitting on a metal chair as well!

    I thought I switched it off tbh at the mains.

    I once repaired an electric drill at work, unplugged the cord first and opened it. I went to the toilet, came back, fiddled around with the drill and *BAM*, some idiot plugged it in again. It was supposed to be a joke at 8:30am, I can tell you, I was railing, but I was at least awake.

    There's nothing like the smell of ozone and burning flesh first thing in the morning to wake you up. Especially when the burning flesh is your own.

    Would have looked quite cool with a drill fused into your arm. Could have led to many minor bit part roles in future horror films and Silent Hill games!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    On this subject, i get shocks to, but static shocks, I cant go near a SONY piece of hifi or dvd, without it resetting. Even thought a DVD was faulty before realising my static charge was causing a micro reset, lmfao,
    On news of PSPUAE update on DCEMU came this reply, lol.

    I'm sure that there could be a money making opertunity in STATIC MAN. Even if there isn't it still must be fun going round to people and giving them a shock. And then using your powers over static electricity on them.
