    I LOL'd.

    As the owner of a computer repair business, I see this stuff EVERY DAY.
    It never ceases to amaze me how people can be so absolutely attached and addicted to their computer, but take absolutely no responsibility for it.

    I *ALWAYS* blow the computer out before even bringing it into my shop. If a customer brings one in as a "walk-in", I grab it from them and take it outside to my compressor and blow it out. Only thing worse than a bunch of stranger dander floating throughout my workplace than cockroaches harboring inside a computer waiting for a new place to infest.
    I have actually seen a couple computers that were full of dead roaches and eggs... when I popped the first one open to blow it out, I realized what they were and took it clear out into the street with a couple cans of compressed air and then sprayed 91% alcohol in it and let it dry before bringing it inside. The other, well, I told them there was nothing I could do for them... I'm sure I could have fixed the problem, but I don't get paid enough to wear a damn Hazmat-certified suit just to deal with some people's computers.

    Been repairing computers myself for a few years and it is amazing the condition peoples pc's are in and the fact that they aren't embarrassed to take it to someone when it is full of who knows what.

    same here e!!.........I clean mine once in a month & the difference I see not only aesthetically but also the temps would drop by 5 & sometimes even by 10 degrees especially the VGA & the CPU radiator!!...........

    sadly, i also deal with this type of rubbish everyday at work.
    when i open a computer that has signs of *maladies* i wear gloves and when i deal with filthy laptops -gloves and facemask
    i dealt with a computer *painted * in liquid nicotine/tarr substance the smell was so horrible i ended up vomiting in spasms and with a terrible headache
    thank god i like fixing computers.....
