I took your suggestion and tried that, and I even went through a thunder shower, though I had to drive a couple'o miles extra to dry it off.

Perfect I'm not sure I could have cleaned my rig as well, don't let the little moisture worry you I understand all mobo manufacturers use a waterproof coating so I'm sure everything will be fine. In fact this gives a new meaning to water cooled and cleaned ! Just as a precaution I would hit the start button with a 6-10 foot pole and have a extinguisher ready.....

Anak once you check your computer out and it still isn't clean enough you could try a drive thru car wash.
Make sure you have the windows up on the truck.

Oh, I'm not as worried as the drivers I was passing to dry it off, then the cop stopped me and I had some splaining to do about what the H*LL I thought I was up to. You see, I had to hold onto the case with my left hand out the window while I was driving.

I would of made a "clean" get-a-way, but there was some crud that fell off the blanket and onto her blouse, I offered to shine her badge but she said no thanks and left me go with a warning, glad she didn't notice I wasn't wearing my seatbelt.

and with the other tongue-in-cheek posts I couldn't resist either.

You are also right about the case being "ancient" It's our very first computer:
  • AT&T 8457 - 3372
  • 486DX2/66 MHz Desktop Computer
  • 8 MB Ram
  • 420 MB Hard Drive - windows for workgroups 3.11 / 35floppies.
  • 3" Floppy
  • 2x CD player
  • Fax/modem
  • 2 ea Serial Ports
  • Dot-matrix tractor fed printer, those were $55. cartridges, and (with apologies to Henry Ford) you could use any color as long as it was black.
  • Used Juno dial-up to get on the internet
  • $1,800 USD in 1998, adjusted for inflation it would be about $2,516.87 now
  • And once I check to see if anything is salvageable, and get the magnets out of the HDD, if it has any, its toast and going to the bone-yard after a and .

So I took a few minutes and manually photoshopped ("staged") the shot. my posts about it were all ad-lib.

It was fun while it lasted. I know, I know, I'm

We all knew you didn`t, but darn you ruined the story. Now go back and delete that post. LOL

With the weather we`ve had you could just set it outside.
