    The common daddy long legs?.. LMAO. I know what you're talking about, who invented this phrase anyway?

    But anyway, that is BS. The daddy long leg is not even a spider. They are just in the same class, but different order, they don't have venom nor do they make webs..

    I would not too! I can bet that they lay egg sacks behind the back-plate door - roaches like such places...

    Thank's for telling me about that thread! It's in my favorites now.

    We meet again Frag, through interesting circumstances this time:p I too keep my PSU fan in my Antec 1200 the normal way, but this is more due to the PSU cable managament. I doubt the PSU fan has much importance on the general airflow in the case, certainly not as much as main fans...

    from here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pholcidae

    Trapping

    The web has no adhesive properties but the irregular structure traps insects, making escape difficult. The spider quickly envelops its prey with silk and then inflicts the fatal bite. The prey may be eaten immediately or stored for later.

    So they do make a web and they Do have venom the common assumption is that they eat other spiders that are more venomous that they so therefor must have very potent venom this ofcourse is wrong it's their speed that allows them to capture and eat other more poisonous spiders

    daddy long legs arent dangerous, that ones a myth meant to scare children.

    white tails OTOH, are worth staying the hell away from.

    Looks like we are talking about different things. I thought that daddy long leg is the common harvestman, which is not even a real spider [​IMG]

    The harvestman does not bite with venom nor does he make web.

    brown recluse because of the necrotic properties of the venom.

    Thats not a spider bite. Its MRSA. I had that happen on my leg. If you do a good enough search you can find a whole topic on it here somewhere on TPU before GN.

    Here found it. The doctors said it was a spider bite until they did a biopsy and it was MRSA. Damn near killed me too.

    I've got something FRESH for you guys!
    A friend of mine brought his girlfriend's PC at my home and said:
    - "i need to upgrade this PC, so investigate here what needs to be done"..

    I opened it up!

    [​IMG]


    I said: - the upgrade will be a totally new PC, all this will be trashed...

    If you are interested what the cobwebbed PC was:

    S478 Celeron D with 256 kb cache CPU
    768 Mb DDR
    Ati Rage 128 VGA
    40 Gb IDE 5900 rpm HDD
    Codegen 300 W PSU
    So, this is how much time it takes for some people to "upgrade".

    the hard drive might still be useful, if its silent. use it as an OS drive.
