Off topic...going on 9 months smoke free for me so far.

Great job cleaning up that pc, looks near brand new. Heh, would be kind of funny if it kicked the bucket after all that work in some sort sense irony maybe it was the dust that kept it running for so long.

Its funny how most people buy a computer, then leave it under their desk for 5 years. Never paying any attention to it.

Great job on the cleanup, that thing was f'ing nasty!

Did you shriek in horror and curl up in a fetal position when u opened the case door?
