Not to brag, but I've seen way worse fron computers returning from trips to Africa...so many I forget to take pictures :p But let's say that's the usual for a month.
Anyway, this caught me by surprise:

This is my old board, stored as it should, for a year....and thaaaat's mold. :wtf:
Which is curious since I used all 4 sata ports, only those have mold. I haven't inspected the cables...
...mold? How?

This tiny HP SFF was brought by a regular client of mine. He said it was in his friend's garage chugging away as a mini-server.
"Just needs a little bit of cleaning and a new power brick" he said...
...filthy lying fucker...

The whole thing is filled with dead roaches, spiders and bug shit. Somehow there was no dust there at all.
Left it in a trash bag for pickup. Had to wash my hands 10 times and I think I've cleaned my office better than ever before))) Even gave my work desk 2 scrubs with alcohol.

About four years ago, a customer phoned me to say his PC had stopped working, so I went to his house and found this:

20151029_120553.jpg

My first question to him was, why?

He'd actually managed to prize the cooler from the m/b and then superglued it to the rear vent holes, as can be seen in the pics.
I asked him how long it had been running like that and he said "It's been fine for months since my cooling modification..."
Long story short - the CPU survived but the mobo didn't. Actually, this is a part of my job that I really enjoy. You never know what you're going to find :)
