I gave mine a 'spring clean' recently and thought it was dirty. Compared to this lot it was sparkling clean. I wonder how it kept going - assuming it did - without catching fire.

Clean your PC every 3 to 4 months that's my motto for today

Been given one or two PCs to "fix" that were in a similar state.

Seen a few spiders but not yet seen the mice or snack packets.

Dirty? That's not dirty.

If you want to see dirty take the back off a thirty year old valved radio or television!

Takes me back to my old days in the RAF working on radar systems for airfields.

Some very, very wise guru [name deleted to protect the not so innocent - but not me] decided that it was time to give one radar, which was working perfectly within spec, a really good service, take out each individual unit and sub-unit to give them a really thorough clean (not that they were dirty, the cooling air was filtered with the filters cleaned out each week). Then test each and every valve (using a valve tester) that was not up to spec, replace it with a new (and tested) valve.

It took three days to get it working properly again!
