Spring cleaningOctober 11, 2009
It’s spring in Australia and it was time for me to clean the insides of my computer. Back in January, I’d promised myself that I’d do it every 3 months or so. Well, it was 9 months before I got around to it (slap self upside the head!). It’s only a small job, but for some reason I kept putting it off.
Even after 9 months the fans were pretty dusty. I also found a fan I’d never seen before lurking under a board –it was CHOKED with dust as I suspect it’s never been cleaned in the 3+ years I’ve had the machine. So out came the damp cloth, the tatty old artist’s paintbrush, a can of compressed air and a screwdriver to remove the case. 30 minutes later and it was done.
