I've got to ask - do you smoke cigarettes around your pc?

This is one of the worst pollutants known to man. And its insidious.
Not so much today, but years ago offices were less strict about smoking policies. I had to replace dozens of cd players because of cigarette smoke damage to the laser lens that the brush lens cleaners could not fix.

A lot of my residential clients smoke, and learned the hard way as well. They now leave the room.
