Hello everyone! 

 

As many times as I've used BleepingComputer for solving my problems, I don't know why I never registered.  Now I have, and my name is Jim Daffron.  I'm 52 years old, and have been goofing with some form of computer or another since I bought my first Commodore VIC-20 new, when they first came out in the very late 70's or early 80's.  My user name kind of gives away one of what I use now. I've got a few laying around (not as nice), but it's all I've ever liked to do.  I'm not sure that I can ever be as helpful as the many of you that have posted answers in the forums which have helped me, but what I've learned, I've remembered, and applied myself more than once or twice with your knowledge, to help someone here.  Thank you.   I've found that the biggest problem with PC's here, is always in the locations people place them, not necessarily malware, drivers and such...  I keep finding that users are placing their PC's too close to the sides or on the floor of their igloos, and the heat of the PC causes the ice to melt, dripping all over the PC, or the PC melting a spot and sinking into the water, it seeping through the vent and fan holes, power supply.....   you believe that?  It's amazing... Anyhow, It's cool to have joined something, and be funny a bit...

Jim:  Welcome.  Like you, I've been servicing PC's since before the IBM PC.  I have seen some very strange installations with even stranger problems.  The big, like you suggested, was the placement of desktops and even more odd, the peripherals in use and their placements.  One major client has all 5,000 PC's in roll around cubicles with security locks (security Torx screws) and the units have to be removed from the cubicles just to get the cases open, not a fun way to spend a day.  I do a once a year job for a client out of Kenai, actually only a week away.  Six days and a visit to each of the oil rigs in the bay and the remote pump site on the far side.  Pc's melting the ice in an igloo, that's a new one.
