Beware of Dust!

Sep 30, 2010

Now that we are slowly transitioning into the colder months, we are likely going to be spending more time indoors. More time indoors can lead to more dust being kicked up within your home.

Not only is dust a health concern, as it can cause sinus and congestion problems, but it can also wreak havoc on your computer systems. Dust building up in your tower unit, computer adapters, network connectors, keyboard, mouse, or battery backup can all be potential problems or fire hazards.

When dust builds up it can make it difficult for various cables to communicate with each other. The dust can actually disrupt or damage the parts of the cables where a connection is made.

Therefore, periodically make sure that you take the time to get rid of all the dust that builds up in and on your computer system. You don’t want something that’s so simple to clean to give you an extremely large headache.

Sep 27, 2010

Did you have little ones in your house? Do you have inquisitive pets in your house? Do you have teenage boys who like to dare each other to do crazy things in your house? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’ll want to keep reading.

If you have a computer in your home, then you are probably aware of the fact that built into the unit are cooling fans. The job of these fans is to remove the heat that is generated by the machine, so that it does not overheat. The larger the computer, the larger the fan. These fans can be dangerous to anyone or anything that may come into contact with the spinning blades.

Therefore, you want to make sure that nobody can get their fingers, noses, tongues, or paws hit by the fan. One way you can prevent this is by using a chrome wire fan finger guard. These protective devices easily attach to your computer and are a convenient way for you to prevent any little accidents.
