I can imagine it now... rubber jonnie in a martial arts film.. where his choice of weapon isn't a samurai sword, but a password protected soldering iron...

Good luck for the switch on event. Which celebrity are you shipping in to flick the switch as it’s near Christmas lights turn on season.

I can see it now.. ST is turned on.. lights dim in the house.. all the bulbs explode as the monitor slowly comes into focus... but wait, there is a eerie red glow filling the room and a faint cry of burning resistors which are looking for their next kill...
