    Well, I did it..........

    I opened up a can of compressed air and cleaned the hell out of my desktop case. You would not believe the dust cloud that came out of that thing.

    On the side of the can it said that there is a bitterant to help discourage inhalant abuse. Do people actually breathe this stuff??????

    Thanks for reminding me! I need to do this so bad that I'm going to take my tower outside so I don't fill my entire apartment with dust!

    Unfortunately. I've had to show ID in the past when I went to purchase a can for my computer.

    Let's face it, in the Harley Davidson manual there's a warning for people not to eat the motorcycle.

    What more can anyone say?

    After frying a graphics card because the fan was choked with cat hair, I dust out my comp regular, and keep it off floor level.
    Also swifers make great dust filters for ports


    If you read a warning on anything and your first thought is "what idiot would ....", well some idiot did lol

    Those swiffer dust mop pads; swiffer sweeper refills. Open one up, use a couple pieces of tape, put it over the air grate on the side of your comp. Doesn't block the air flow at all and catches most everything before it gets into your comp.

    I've always worried about using compressed air cans inside a pc. The ones i can buy all contain a cleaning agent and propellant which are liquid and leave a residue. Is it actually safe to use these inside a pc? Any tips on using them?

    Round these parts...

    If you use a leafblower to clean out the inside of your computer case...you might be a Redneck...

    I done it!

    In years past I spent too much $$$$ on cans of compressed air...then I found a little secret.

    Go to Harbor Freight Tools (if you live in the US) with a 39.99 coupon and get a little pancake compressor. Buy a cheap hose and a spray gun adapter and you can do it all yourself, plus inflate bike and car tires too You can dial it down so it doesn't break any components in your PC, and it won't leave any residue, and you can use it for all sorts of other electronics too. I usually blow a ginormous hairball from my fans every spring and again just before the first snow of winter. Probably the only reason this PC has lasted so long =)
