Only problem is, the repair folks are in Sydney. And even if I have a proof of purchace (which I don't), I'd have to pay $44 up front, because it falls into the 'liquid or mechanical damage' bracket, not just a faulty player. So, I'd have to pay the cost of shipping the fucker to Sydney, the up front fee, then the repair bill. Knowing them, I'd probably have to pay the return shipment as well.
Now I'm going to be in a shitty mood all day. I just have to remind myself that it would NOT be cheaper just to buy a new one.
* Freedom; normally I would say French, but I actually have nothing against them. Given these times of the Americans randomly hating the French for abiding by the UN, I thought I'd turn my alliteration around onto them in a conveluted fashion. I'm so clever.
