Oi....

So. Have you ever heard of grenading a power supply? Cause I'll tell you, any sort of dust removal that isn't a vacuum and several hours to set can trigger that :ohnoes:

I've always used an air compressor along with a screwdriver jammed up against the fan so it can't destroy the bearings.

Just because it has "vacuum" in the title, doesn't make it so ;)

I haven't seen too many insides as bad as most of those, but I've seen just as bad as every one on page 7 there... :no:

On page 11, someone had a mummified frog in their system. I swear the same thing happened to me! I work at a computer recycler and while loading CPUs in the back of the truck one of the computers I was loading had it's side panel pop off and a dried out frog fell out! I can't believe it's happened to another person!

We find dead frogs and lizards (and little geckoes and chameleons) in all sorts of things down here. Basically every house in Florida has at least one gecko in it... we've got two or three. They live a couple months then die off from lack of food, since we spray for bugs outside every couple months. Sometimes you find dessicated mummies, sometimes you find bare skeletons.
