Chris has MINUTE amounts of dust. You sound like a drill sargeant.
My cables are a mess as well. Such a mess, in fact, that I dont even bother putting on my side panel as there would be no airflow if I did that! Like was said earlier, maybe a long time without power. Not only is my computer my computer, itis my TV. Without it, I have NOITHING to do! I dont even restart it because of TV. TV!!!!! TV!!!!!!! It takes time and patience, neither of which any of us have. Patience anyway. We all got time, just dont want to spend it.
Nubius, the reference went over my head too. You may have stumped me on that.
However, unlikely. I'm sure it would come to me as soon as you told me.
