It got shafted years ago, now they're just trying to milk every last penny before it dries up completely.

Out of curiosity, how many of the books have they re-released with new punched up endings? Wait, wait, that wasn't quite right. Lets try again with better paper. And add in some stuff with Jabba on the toilet.
My Cisco IP Phone (7970) had been really doing my tits in this trip.
I would answer the phone on speaker, but if i then picked up the phone to use the handset it would take about 10 seconds to switch off the speaker.
Came back after lunch today, and thought that it was time to give the phone a good talking to!
Found a close enough approximately size flat blade screwdriver that fitted the screws on the back of the phone, unplugged and set to work.
1) 2 screws at back of phone removed
2) Starts pulling the case, still not coming apart, hmmm... add more force, no still not working.
3) Find a hidden screw behind the handset hook used when wall mounting, removed screw.
4) Applied force to case, nope still not budging.
5) Starts poking around case edge with screw driver, pops off front facia, find 3 more screws hidden.
6) Remove 3 screws, pull case, nope...still not coming apart.
7) Peels back sticky feet to find 2 more hidden screws under the feet.
8) Removes screws. Oh yes we have a winner, pulls phone to bits.
Identifies the spring behind the handset switch has jumped, phone has maybe been slammed down once to often by my back to back (honest, not me )!
9) Re-position spring
10) Re-assemble phone
11) Re-move and swap 2 different sized screws put back in the wrong place and stopping the handset hook going back.
12) Cleans phone screen with antibacterial alcohol hand gel (stuff works great on computer screens by the way, it doesn't evaporate as quick like wipes do.)
13) Replace phone screen bezel
14) Plug in phone.
Works a treat now!
Cisco phone 0.5 - 1 Me
The phone got 0.5 for effort and me obtaining a ragged nail and sore finger tips from pulling so damn hard on the casing edges until finding the hidden screws!
