I’m not sure whether anyone else who are currently stuck with a slow connection speed also get An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host message whenever you tried to retrieve a big file (svn update / checkout) from Sourceforge SVN Repository over the last few weeks or is it just me who get that message?
– I’ve tried updating the subversion client on my machine to 1.5.3 (command line version) and still i get the same message
– Change the svn address to http instead of https to get more speed and still nothing
– Doing a fresh checkout instead of upgrade just in case that’s the source of the problem and the result is still same
And finally ….
So … yesterday i just received a response from Sony regarding my enquiry about PS3 Warranty and such in Indonesia (because i have a plan on buying a brand new PS3). And as a matter of fact, this is the first time ever i asked such question before buying a game console, because i know that there’ll be no official supports for game console here because of … well you know … piracy issue here
I decided to ask this question directly because i have a XBOX 360 console that i bought April 2008 (which is still under warranty if it’s not flashed), and i have sent it for repair once because it won’t read any disc and i keep getting open tray message although there’s a disc inside, a month ago (not to Microsoft because i have a flashed 360, although i’m not the one who flashed it because it came pre-flashed from the store and beside it’s hard to get a non pre-flashed 360 console here) and the cost to repair it … is around 36.4 USD (if converted to USD) … and right now (one month after i’ve sent my 360 for repair) … my 360 console won’t read any disc again, and i’m guessing this time i need to replace the lens … which is going to cost me around 78 USD … and of course i consider that as expensive
In short, i decided to ask this question to Sony so just in case in the future i’m experiencing problem and it is still under the warranty, i can still send it to them directly to get repaired for free (in my case i always have problem with optic ever since the PSX era)
At first (before i sent them an email message) i thought that even if there is no official supports here for the Playstation products, i can still at least get a replacement / repair service for free as stated at the above paragraph but here is their response:
