    How to make your PC experience a bit like driving

    I was looking for cooling products just for the hell of it and stumbled onto a 5.25 Drive bay that holds a cigarette lighter and a cup holder.

    Why anyone would put a drink that close to a PC is beyond me.... one bump the wrong way and you've got liquid trickling down all over your HDs or worse. The lighter is a few IQs lower on the scale of stupidity. It's like "let's take something that produces even MORE heat and put it in your PC!" It's kind of anti-geek.

    Yah but if you're not a geek and you're an alcoholic smoker, this is your dream.
    Hmm

    that's an understatement, you ever see what tar+dust= ? I had a customers computer that looked like the insides were caked with mud...and I mean caked, you couldn't see one bit of silicon and the fans were all jammed up. Took me one hour, 5 can's of compressed CO2, 2/3 a bottle of rubbing alcohol and a whole box of Q-tips to clean it.

    This is very true.

    I only had to deal with one smoker's PC... and the inside of the case was coated with a pretty thick layer of slimey tar. Very gross.

    I think it's awesome that we're talking about what the inside of the computer looks like, but the inside of the smoker's lung? Eh, not so important! lol
    See you in 13

    I don't think any of us have had to clean out a smoker's lung

    No, there used to be a member here that went by that name. He took an old CD-ROM, removed the optics, and actually made himself a cup holder

    personally when I have a beer (or otherwise alcohlic) drink, like now, I try to stay away from the computer. I tend to say stuff I usually wouldn't to people either through IM or board posts (though I tend to do this on this board). But I forget what I was going to say. Somethign about me not having a cup hold coming out of my computer but still being able to drink.... idk.
    Hmm

    I wonder who thought was a good idea in the first place. Besides drunks being the ones to use it they probably invented it as well.
    My computer is awesome.
