Thats finger lickin hot!
NOW I GET IT!!!
The flipping windoze running CPUs are permanently
engaged in inefficient unnecessary foreground and
and background activities
and thats causing fan burn outs.
The constant bleating of HD lights and net
activity all takes that extra toll on power and
its responsible for all the stupid fan burns.
I mean, I do go out of my way to put in bearing
fans instead of sleeve fans and regularly
clean out dust whenever squeaking starts buts
thats not gonna help me. The dum dums at redmond
strike again! I remember not so long ago, they put
HD to sleep in default install mode and caused billions
in support bills as applications crashed left right and
center. This fan burn out issue must cause a few more
billion waste all around the globe with burnt out CPUs,
dead PCs and lost data.
