    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

    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.

    If you put that in a free range farm, I bet the chickens would assume it's chicken feed by the looks...

    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.

    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.

    Time to destroy some data. Why pay for a company when I have 16oz's of heavy metal to do the job for me?
    1 batch of many hundred I intend to do today:

    I like to use them for target practice myself, oddly satisfying.
