Other than unplugging the PS3 from the rest of the equipment and throwing it in the pool, does anybody have any other suggestions on how to get the thing up and running?

I was updating the system via the internet, left the room for several minutes and whenever I came back the PS3 was turned off, now whenever I turn it on it's locked up on the update screen. I've turned it off and on a couple of times and unplugged it a couple of times but it still keeps locking up on the download page.

I've never really liked the effen thing anyway.

Disregard ... evidently whenever a problem like this arises with the PS3 the lockup issue needs to be addressed using the USB port and the controllers hardwired, I was using the optional remote.

Chalk one up for the little missus once again, if it truly weren't for her the swimming pool would be filled with all sorts of gadgets from around the house.

I really do not like that shiny ugly thing, these damn Sony MegaChangers are crap also ... several discs they simply will not play and a lot of discs that plays perfectly well on any other player will skip, jump and freeze on the Sony.

I'm beginning to *really* dislike Sony.

I like the idea of the magachangers because they are a great place to store the CDs but they sure are finicky about what they play, too much so.

Maybe I'm just getting old and cantankerous?

Which mega changer? I have 3 x 995DVP (400 SACDs + DVD) and I am still impressed by the resilience of the mechanics. But if the other types are not as good, it's important to know as one day (quite future), a Blu-ray changer will come my way.

I bet the PS3 shows crazy amounts of dust with that shiny black surface even after cleaning it within 24 hrs. Thats one thing that bugs me about my Panasonic player.

Eric I've got the first generation CX355's. They are really sensitive to any flaws or scratchs, I've inspected discs after they skipped and couldn't find any imperfections, would put the disc in either the Oppo, Denon or car CD player and they would play fine but yet won't play in the MegaChangers until I cleaned them very good.
