A techie friend of mine went to a house call. The owner was a HEAVY chain smoker, keep that in mind.
So he went there because he was told that the desktop was running slow, so he opened it up.
Inside there was an 1/8th inch thick of pure nicotine coating everything inside the desktop.
Yup! Just cleaned a pc yesterday that was on 24/7 for close to 8 years in a house with 2 cats, and a heavy smoker. Huge clumps of dirt everywhere, and apparently sharp edges because it gave me this
Oh how I want to use a shopvac blower right now.
Right there with ya T.
I'd be making sure to get a tetanus shot from the docs after that don't want tetanus setting in
The cut still hasnt closed up, think I might go to the doctor in a few days if its still not healing
If it's stopped bleeding, you'll get a hard scab buildup in there that will eventually disappear. If it hasn't, then get a buterfly bandage like Jetster said.
Just keep it clean and aired and it'll be fine. Theren't not much the doc will do, it's too short for stitches and the wound would have to be re-opened to stitch anyway. They only usually do that if you're worried about scarring.
You really don't have to worry about tetanus. The bacteria is found in soil, not dust.
Looks like an old LGA775 P5Q
Asus Striker Extrem Socket 775, Old but still running OC´ed from the day i bought it, I gave it to my friend to use it when i moved on to 1336.
Also that Cooler you see guys is an peltier cooler, Rare and burned out as well at least the control unite was.
I hop you turned around and beat the user with that keyboard...
Ohh...were the keys even registering key presses? I don't even...
If you put that in a free range farm, I bet the chickens would assume it's chicken feed by the looks...
WOW - that is just gross
I'll have to ask my intern when he's back from his holidays. We had a PC here from what seemed to be a stoner and heavy smoker. We denied his warranty because of excessive dirt. Thick, brown, gunky, sticky "wool" everywhere. All white parts were yellowish-brown... yuck. Luckily my intern is a smoker and agreed to work on it.
and this is the projectors where in 3 years got no cleaned at all
i dunno, they are lazy or just dont give a d#mn or both, lazy and dont give a d#mn as long as these projectors run well
how come someone can live with keyboard like that
people like that shouldnt have a pc
you should see my car... but don't dare say i shouldn't have one
seriously... every 3 days? once a week? I cleaned mine about 1.5 months ago and will again in another 1.5. No it's not spotless but it's clean, I just must have low dust here.
if you have AC and always close the door, you may have lower dust there
SAND! It's everywhere, get used to it!
anyone still have this photo? Its the one with the dead mouse in the computer
Does it count? About 3 months in my PC
