    If you're going to copy and paste verbatim from thedailywtf could you at least add some credit? You're even hotlinking to their images FFS.

    So bloody what ? Is this going to ruin your day ?
    The reason I posted it was that some members may get a giggle out of it.

    Lighten up and take a chill pill for gawds sake.

    Great post Matt - the pic reminds me of the time I came across a PC with holes drilled all over the casing for 'ventilation' and bubble-wrap inside 'to deaden the sound' - d'oh, the increased noise was due to the fact that:

    A) HE HAD DRILLED NUMEROUS 1CM DIAMETER HOLES THROUGH ALL THE PANELS!
    B) HE HADN'T TAKEN THE PANELS OFF TO DO IT AND ALL THE FANS WERE FULL OF SWARF!
