Sitting right next to my trusty PC, having been opened up and cleaned inside out to get rid of the dust mite haven. Old ragged cloth and water really works well. Just make sure everything’s dry before you put everything back together.
And uh… make sure your climate is humid.
One problem though, caused by something unrelated… While I was busy plugging in an external hard drive to copy Smallville seasons 1 and 2 for colleague, I managed to short my old JVC hi-fi. That’s what you get for trying to unplug stuff while the gangplank is turned on. The hi-fi’s power cable wasn’t hooked in well enough, and every bit of movement made it trip.
It took 3 successions of trips to kill it.
So here I am without sound. With 2 seasons of Smallville and 4 episodes of Beck to watch.
Sigh. Oh well, it’s time for a new amp. The JVC was bit too bulky anyway. Gotta find something nice but affordable for the sole purpose of relaying bits of audio. Maybe I’ll get another for my TV even. And maybe a set of rear speakers too!
Ahh.. wish I had more money to play with.
