Sucks to be you
Try some sympathising you **bleep**, the PS3 is the only friend I have.
How about "WOW it really sucks to be you" with your last remark as well O_o
Sorry to hear about your PS3 being borken.
If you're really worried about your memory though, I'd recommend you check out these guys on the Internet called Endless Electronics. They fixed my PS3 up over the summer and even tossed in some really sweet upgrades; I couldn't be happier with it!
There's actually a section on their website that covers the problem you're having (no power). Their prices are fairly cheap compared to what I've seen from other repair places (even local ones).
If you'd rather not get the PS3 fixed though, I believe that if you call them, you can just ship your PS3 to them and they'll ship you back a hard drive with all your PS3 data backed up onto it for free, so that you can easily transfer it to your new PS3. They offered this service a couple months ago when I got my PS3 repaired, so you'll have to call them to see if they still do.
Hope something works out for you!
