Yeah, but my days of hard-core gaming are all but over, sadly. Now that I'm out of college and have a job, my life has changed a lot. There's little overlap between time I feel like playing games, and time available to play games. That and the time available to play games is now at an all-time low. Add to this the large backlogs of unread books and unwatched movies I've got, and that's not a good situation during a time when so many great games are on the way. I've played all of 5 missions in StarCraft 2. I have Other M and haven't played much of it. And I just got the Metroid Prime trilogy and barely got started on the Prime 1 before getting re-addicted to RuneScape. So yeah, pretty lame I guess. I'm not much of a gamer anymore, really. In a way I'm sad, but in another way I don't really care. Heck, I haven't even beaten The Oil Blue yet! And I bought it on release day.

I've only tried blowing the dust out. I don't have a tri-key nor do I want to order one just to open the thing and clean the contacts.
So you want to fix it without disassembling it, and blowing it doesn't work? All that's left is water, fire and magnets, and they're usually not on very good terms with electronics.
Lol, that is true. Doesn't leave any options, really. So I guess the thing is obsolete and I'll just get a new one. After I buy my 3D monitor, of course.
