    probably the usual shit:
    Someone a long long long time ago invented it.
    Someone a long long long time ago used it after its invented.

    Someone invented a better thing than that.
    And nobody uses it because they are still used to the old thing even if the old thing is utter garbage, nobody knows about it, you always used the old shit and the new thing is too expensive...

    We now have heat-shrink, and it is not expensive

    True, but it takes some time and forethought to use. I say that and I'm a fan of heatshrinking. BTW - a hotair gun works better than a match.

    I find that a soldering iron also does quite nicely. As far as using electrical tape goes, it's just a quick (and dirty) fix tool, I never did see it as a viable long-term solution to anything.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    True, I just wanted to get across the message that one doesn't need a special hot air gun; a hair dryer should do.

    True again, providing the hair-dryer makes hot enough air.

    Yes but you can't use Heatshrink in the middle of a cable where only the insulation is a bit damaged.
    For that you need other stuff.

    I think Stefan's response would have been better worded as "You're one of very few that have problem with the fan." and not "Only you".
