I have no idea why you'd worry about wearing out the power switch, but surely the OS partition would be mounted read only?

You could possibly damage your own data though. Saved games, etc.

It doesn't exist in Australia either, but very good quality RGB to YUV converters are available.

People are already talking about midget p0rn and discussing how the midgets can put full size people "to shame" with their enthusiasm.

I'd probably suggest it can't degenerate much lower than that.

It's a nice little adapter, but probably overkill in most cases since the drives can usually be modified very easily. There's instructions for many different models available.

Hi Mafoo, the best thing would have been to go into Early Startup and boot with no Startup-Sequence so you could remove the offending line(s). There was certainly no need for a format and reinstall.
