How often do you clean your puter?

Good morning.
It's currently 34 out with a mixture of rain and sleet. Expecting to turn colder as the day progresses. Should make for some fun driving. I'm leaving the Kia in the garage. :-)
Yesterday, I did manage to clean the Salon. And after Craig got up, we did a little grocery shopping.
I was going to run the mo-ho generator, but with temps of only 22 and a stiff bitter cold easterly wind. I changed my mind. :-) Maybe today.
My main project for the day was computer maintenance. Regular readers will know that every January, I clean up the tower. Since I have an 'old' computer from 2002, I have a massive tower. And here's what it looked like when I opened it up.

See the front and rear vents? All plugged with dust!

I take the vacuum and suck the dust off the vents, then use canned air to blow out all the dust from inside. Then vacuum that all up. I do this once a year to keep it running cool. Over heating is the main cause for problems. As bad as the vents looked, I should probably do it twice a year, but in the summer, I don't think of indoor stuff. :-)
I couldn't do Craig's because I ran out of air. (you know I meant canned air right?)
So we'll pick that up today.
With all the year end bookwork done, that gives Craig a little down time, so we started our first puzzle of the winter.
And there's an RV show this coming weekend. Maybe I can talk Craig into going. Just to look of course. :-)
And for dinner, we had smoked pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy, and broiled asparagus.
And that's it for now!

  1. You just may motivate me to do this. I know it probably needs it.

  2. I remember you doing this and posting pictures, year after year. When I had a desktop, I did it regularly too. But not once with the laptops.

  3. How do you smoke your pork chops, or do you buy them that way?
    We don't clean ours as often as we should...
    Hope your day has gone well! :-)
