A Fire in my PC…

December 21st, 2006 by steve

Last night when we came home from church we smelled something burning. Following our noses, we found the smell was coming from the computer room. But we could find nothing hot. We turned it all off and kept a close eye on everything.

This morning I took the PC apart and found a small rubber-band used to hold the cables together away from the processor fan had dried out, lost its elasticity and fallen into the processor heat sink. Mmm…. Smelled good!

The question arises: “Who left that rubber-band in there?”


It’s good that God takes care of dummies.
