When you open a 13-year-old PC that has never been opened and there's so much dust that even the vacuum is like "plz no" 😑

    I once repaired a server which contained a large spider (hand palm sized), and a webbed cocoon thing containing the skeleton of a small mouse.

    Since that day, I close off every PCI slot, and even cover the fans with finely mazed dust filter screens.

    @bittersweet was that server located in a forest? 😬

    @Faraaz Uh no a 3U rack server in a datacenter in Belgium. The spider was most likely an escaped pet, it was too tropical for Europe.

    It was a really gross datacenter though, puddles on the concrete floor from leaky pipes and moldy wooden doors.

    Lmao even the vacuum tubes are saying please no.

    (Before you reply, don't get your historical inaccuracies in a twist. This was a joke!)

    @bittersweet at that point, I would have just burned down the whole building. Mold, ok a cleaning crew can fix it. Giant death spider of Doom? Fuck that!
