I am happy because our gas has just been re-connected after two of the coldest days and nights this year.
(I thought I could smell gas on the driveway near to our house on Wednesday afternoon. Like a fool I called the Gas Board, who within an hour had disconnected our supply. Not being especially old, (and our youngest being 13), we were not a 'priority case', so we had to wait for the four different teams to turn up and do their bit of the job. The gas was actually reconnected to the house yesterday, but we had to wait until today for another man to re-connect the meter, as the people who came yesterday weren't allowed to do that.
So, we had to keep ourselves warm using two electric radiators in a large house, and used a picnic stove with the microwave. Next time I think will wait until the weather warms up before I report a minor gas leak.

* Have taken the case off of my not working computer and think I can see where the problem is - well, in a 'knee bone connected to the thigh bone' way - the fan connected to the PSU isn't spinning right (it starts OK, then it sputters and stops, then it comes on again, then it sputters a bit), but it's not blocked. All points to a PSU problem...
It is probably just caked up with dust. Try sucking any dust out with the Noo Noo (AKA Hoover) to see if that makes any difference. If the power supply was at fault I doubt that the PC would work at all.
The fans are usually cheap and easy enough to replace.
