    OK, this guy I know calls me over this morning to look at his computer because he is having trouble getting online. Now the fact that he is using Cricket as his ISP and his place is completely surrounded by very tall walnut trees which do an extremely good job of blocking line of sight to the cell tower he's trying to pull off of is not the issue here as according to him, those little microwaves go through anything, don't you know?

    He says his computer is overheating which is why things are running so slowly and he then asks me if I have a thermometer so that he can check the processor temperature.......................................................................

    No shit.

    A thermometer.

    He has taken the side cover off of the box and has stuck a small electric fan right up against the processor fan and is running his "accessory" fan on high speed because he says that the additional fan will prevent overheating. He's not worried about the very strong magnetic field generated by the fan motor at 60 HZ inducing eddy currents and spikes in the motherboard, cooking the processor or frying the memory chips as he says that we are surrounded by magnetic fields and magnetic fields, even strong ones will not bother a computer. The currents being induced into the motherboard are so strong that his monitor flickers like a vacancy sign on a cheap motel!

    Here it is only 10 am and I already need a drink!

    Tell him to run on down to 7-11 and grab a few bags of ice while he is at it.

    Then we want more pics.

    He's got the fan the wrong way round.
    It should be sucking air away not blowing it in.
    A fridge doesn't work by making things cold.
    It works by taking the heat out of things.
    I did listen to my father he was a heating and ventilation engineer.

    Good idea on the ice because I could use some to cool off my head and keep some beer cold! He got mad at me when I told him the truth about what was really going on so I left because is is very large, has a time bomb temper and if he knew I had taken the pics I got he would be over kicking in my front door!

    Oh, well, yeah, that too! I think he has a similar problem with chicks as his bottle of Viagra was on the other side of the desk next to the monitor. Worries me when a guy keeps Viagra next to his monitor.

    You shouldn't, hot soup should be slurped from the side of a spoon.
    However I think it's just the way our brain works just as hot water freezes quicker
    than cold water. They re-ice icerinks with hot water.

    OK, when you blow across hot soup or any hot liquid, the air you blow picks up heat from the liquid and freely passes into the surrounding atmosphere. In a computer the processor fan blows air downwards through a heat sink which is attached to the processor and that heated air is exhausted out the sides of the heat sink. This guy's "High Tech" fan arrangement is blowing the hot air exhausted from the heat sink right back onto the processor and motherboard thus slowly deep frying the whole thing.

    People are such dumb asses. We had one customer who had their main server just plugged into extension outlet in the office. Every night around 11am the server crashed. Logs showed no problem with the server up until each crash. Then it dawned on someone that the cleaning people came in at that time and sure enough every night they dutifully disconnected the server to plug in the vacuum cleaner.

    I was rather thinking that it should be bottles of beer. One upside the guy's skull and the other for me to chug!

    :)
