If none of the internal cables had been shorting or the insulation had melted away etc., then I'd assume it's just due to the PSU's age that the components have degraded over time.
Yeah that’s the most likely cause of the PSU smelling.

Another reason might’ve been a cheap lower-quality PSU. :mrgreen:

Re: How's the weather?
It's been so sunny in Pembrokeshire that I've got peely sunburn all down my neck. I always forget suntan lotion :(

Re: The Awesome and Cool Poll Thread
I wouldn't be too surprised if a parent wouldn't want their child to have a drug test in their own school (especially if they already know their child is taking drugs). Either way, I think the stigma around drug use is overblown and the cause of getting into hard drugs goes deeper than gateway drugs, so a mandatory drug test probably wouldn't help the problem and might even make it worse.

The only other thing I can think of is how the old PSU's had a switch on the back to toggle between US and European voltage, though I'm guessing you would have checked that anyway.
Yeah, I did check it and it was set properly (i.e. 220V). (Could it be due to Slovakia using 230V?)

Also, just in case, there were no loud bangs, just a sudden smell of burning electronics.
That should be ok, Ireland has 230v and those PSU's with 220 written on them still work. If none of the internal cables had been shorting or the insulation had melted away etc., then I'd assume it's just due to the PSU's age that the components have degraded over time.

+ At least in that case, another PSU would fix it.
– I didn’t have a spare AT PSU tho. Also, I didn’t wanna risk frying another PSU if the board itself or something else was the culprit.

+/- Perhaps the machine shorted out?
Nah, only the power supply died.

Sucks indeed. It annoyed me. I seem to have no luck with such stuff.

Don't forget we are looking for more GoldenSun Online developers! It is at the moment developed by Hunchman801 and Romano Productions (main programming), Survivor (Flash), and th3()ne (graphics team).

If you're willing to help us, don't hesitate and contact us!

I announce you that I'm currently developing an online game with Romano Productions, called GoldenSun Online. This MMORPG is very ambitious and you should have a look at the small GoldenSun Online portal I've created. You may notice that we need some help, so don't hesitate to contact us (Hunchman801 or Romano Productions). You should tell the Golden Sun communities' members about it, thank you.

The general settings of the Pirate-Community system were successfully updated yesterday. The pages should load faster, especially when there are many members online.

In order to avoid several glitches, the RPG-related files will remain unavailable as long as no change occurs.

Furthermore, I'll modify some other files today, everything should go fine, but if some glitch happens, don't pay attention to it.

I have a bad news for Pirate-Community members. Because of several glitches and a lack of time, RaymanRPG development is now frozen. It should not go any further before a while. Anyways, I'm developing another online game with a friend of mine, who's a great developer. I may tell you more about this shortly.

By the way, now Gigaman is gone, I have to add new moderators. Wait and see!

Yesterday, I developed a new system which allows users to change their avatar side via their profile. They don't have to PM me anymore in order to become a baddie or to update his baddie avatar.

We've been waiting for it for months, here it is! No, it isn't RaymanRPG, but it's the domain name of the Pirate-Community! Forget hunchman801.jexiste.fr because now you can access Pirate-Community by typing www.raymanpc.com! It looks more professional, and such a community really needed it!

I've juste fixed the glitch which prevented members from editing their flag in their profile. Everything works fine now.

You'll notice that the Team, RaymanBD, RaymanTCG and RaymanENCYCLO pages were filled in, as they had remained blank since December 2004.

In spite of these updates, the MetalGearRayman page wasn't updated, since I'm still discussing with Sbir' about it.

And because its webmaster couldn't access the internet and the website hasn't been updated for ages, the NotrAmiRayman website doesn't belong anymore to the Pirate-Community.

Maybe you had already noticed it, the PHP scripts in the Pirate-Community website didn't work anymore, and it was impossible to surf on it because of redirection and SQL queries problems, etc... I've just re-programmed the website, and it now works fine (with faster scripts). Moreover, I fixed some glitches, as the error message before the news and the My Account page. I didn't complete the Team, RaymanBD and RaymanTCG pages (although I soon will) and the MetalGearRayman and NotrAmiRayman pages aren't available, as their webmasters haven't done anything.
