    Lmao Dusty PC

    Hehe one of the staff has brought their PC in for me to take a look at 'cos it's running a bit slow, it's got 192Mb RAM so i thought i'd kindly stick a spare 512 stick in it and found this lot:








    Penny is there for scale

    =D

    It still had the quality control sticker, untouched, over the side case opening i broke it to get in!

    Can't see it. I assume it's posted on one of the free image hosting sites?

    I bet if you open up most "domestic" PCs you'll find they look like that - they're often put on the floor in bedrooms and they do a good job of keeping the dust down by just sucking it into the machine :-)

    Really, it's a tribute to the quality of the thermal design of the machine that it just keeps working anyway!

    I see some like this on occasion...makes me cringe..

    I saw one with a HS that was utterly choked and a cooked fan...the woman used "shake 'n' vac" a lot...bloody menace.

    That and "bedroom" PCs full of talc..

    My rig is kept spotless...
