Angry Compaq is angry

I don’t know why I keep putting faces on things, maybe its a disorder. Oh well.

Since I don’t have anything else of value to put here, lets look at a sad Mac Book. It would not start, flat dead.

I fiddled with its battery and then decided to check the Ram. The first stick that popped out of the slot looked all funky with white stuff on it.

no images were found

Turned out that someone had coated the end of it in thermal paste, I don’t know why but they did. Ram does not like thermal paste smeared over it like cheese on a cracker, contrary to popular beliefs.

After the nasty stick was removed the Mac was all happy and like “Watch me chime and boot cause I don’t have a bunch of crap shoved in my Ram slot”


Some Random Crap

So here we have some new stuff. This may be a future Woot shirt, not sure all depends. Its a big Tree Monster, I thought of it in that half awake stage you get when your just waking up and everything is still kind of out of wack. Kind of looks like a plata-tree.

Heres a Dell I worked on that was being tarted. Would boot and run stuff, but no Windows starty. After popping the side off it I found out that there were 4 burst capacitors, AND WALDO! I caught that punk.

And here is a picture of my shrimpers in their natural habitat on the Great Steel Desk Reef. Look at those crazy little buggers.

Thats all for Thursday 😛
