Friends don’t let friends operate computers in acidic environments!

19 08 2005

We recently pulled a PC out of one of the areas of our work because it died.  It’s not too hard to see why:

This is just from sitting near a container that holds HCl regularly.

Above is a close up of the back – you can see the blistering from the corrosion!

And internally, you can see that the cause of death was acute power supply failure, from inhaling too many acid fumes.  Yeeeach 😦

PC’s really need to be kept away from these things, unless it’s a simply a matter of a “business expense” to replace them periodically.
