Oh I just heard from my best friend and he said that completely by chance his dad got these exact same cables this week and just like in my case they set his hard drive on fire,so avoid these things people!
What i want to know is what are the odds that we would both get the same cables the same week and have the same problem? This is getting X files level strange now people.
As I much as I enjoy the X files, that's a huge problem I have with it... Mulder treats every mundane coincidence as if there were a conspiracy involved. Granted, in universe, there is, but it seems to have made some people in real life feel justified jumping to the same conclusions.
That being said, that is a pretty odd coincidence that you both got the same cables by chance. These kinds of odds freak me out sometimes, like I was walking down the street today and passed a car with the license plate XGF 3A2. I mean, what are the chances that of all the license plate numbers I could have seen it was that one?! ;)
P.S. Thanks for the advice, I hate hard drive fires
