go without saying, but I had to call someone on it today, use canned air to blow dust out of a computer, and not
an air compressor with a blower tip. Air compressors generate moisture and blow it right into your rig.
Reminds me of the time I was a friends house, and another guy turned up wanting his machine fixed because it was 'slow'.
We opened it up and there was at least a 1/2" of dust over everywhere. The guy never cleaned it in 6years.
We had an aircompressor, which in hindsight wasnt a good idea to use in a single garage next to his sports car... ~120PSI and 25 minutes later...
But back on topic.
