    Well now you've got me all worried! :confused:

    How am I supposed to suck the dust out? I mean compressors and air blasts just blow it around... so what works? A dust cloth or a brush or something?

    Oh what I do is follow all the guides I have seen. I hold the vacuum at least a foot away from the PC if not more.. after it is unplugged of course. Then I used compressed air to blow the dust out, and suck up the dust from the air with the vacuum.. it isn't terribly effective but it is better than letting the dust float around. I do the same thing when I fill the cat litter. The vacuum will suck the dust right out of the air. Then vacuum around the PC, all the dustballs that fly out and land on the floor etc.. Then vacuum the rest of the room, because that's where all the dust is coming from. Keep the room clean, the PC will be cleaner.

    You might never kill any part vacuuming it out, but it would suck if a discharge killed your 500 dollar video card, or maybe just made it unstable for the rest of it's life because it zapped some insignificant transistor or something. Who knows.. I like to be VERY careful around my PC though because it is so freaking expensive ans so sensitive to static.

    Yeah... well my house and vacuum are well grounded, I had an older vacuum that would cause static to be discharged to me through the handle from the carpets... needless to say I never used that.

    But I do keep my work area dirt free as much as I can with 2 pets... and yet, still dust.

    d'you find pubes and dried up spooge from late night porn marathons? i was eating popcorn the other night and spilled salt all down in my keyboard. : / hasn't affected anything yet. just bugging me to know it's there. but i refuse to spend money on such an abundant resource such as air in a bottle. $3 for some pressurized air. sheesh

    actually grounding has nothing to do with static electricity caused by using the hose. grounding only protects against fault in the electrical circuit. PVC(primarily what most hoses are made of) is very prone to static charge. friction of just about any material, be it small bits of plastic and even dust create static charge.
    but im not getting into the debate of whether u should vacuum ur pc or not.

    sorry im not a great purveyor of the industry as some. :uhoh:

    i just thought of some more freebies i get from work. i get zip-ties, electrical tape, wire nuts, hilti gun shots(pretty much a .22 blank. squeeze them gently with some "klines"(lineman cutters) and drop it on ground behind someone to scare the hell out of them.(use extreme caution!!!! ppl have lost eyeballs doing it), drywall pieces for when i get angry and punch the wall at home:oops: , um....i think that's it.
