I thought that was a joke at first!! I've never seen/heard of a liquid cooled computer... You must've built that yourself. Where does one buy that stuff like that??

When I break the LAN down I'll try to get a few pics before I pack it up. I have a little of everything here, and it will be a major rebuild effor when I move honestly. My buddy had a pre-made water cooling kit for his computer, they are great if you need extended capacities for running a system beyond it's specifications.

OK, finally got the LAN broken down. Here's a buncha pics.

Left:Dual P166, 240mb RAM. Lightning fast Trio64 video, and a 10/100 NIC Slackware equipped. Dedicated IRC machine.
Right:My main work station. Athlon 2500+, 512 RAM, Radeon 9600 Pro, no creative sound card (seem to have a problem with them crapping out) despite the live drive. DVD R/W, CD-RW.

My trio of 19 inch monitors; didn't spend a dime on em, Viewsonic has a slight burn on it but not bad, the middle one needs a few capacitors in it but works and the last one was a freebie that I do not know why they got rid of it. DUMPSTERDIVING RULES!!!!!

right:my LAN file server, ~.38 TB, DVD drive and CD-RW. Slackware Linux and a 4gb drive for the operating system. Rage 128 Pro, XP 2600+ and 512 RAM. Left:IBM PC Server 320 case, future mod victim.
Midle:Cabletron 10/100 switch 24 port.
Top:p3 600, 64 RAM 4gb drive and 3 NICs. OpenMOSIX computer in the future, at least that's the plan. Slackware Linux installed

we have a apple e mac thats about 3 years old and time for a good cleaning, does any one know any thing about mac computers?????
The eMac can be a pain in the butt to get apart and especially difficult to get back together. Your best bet is to use a can of compressed air to blow the gunk out of it. I've had a couple of those and they're dependable, although the CRT is prone to crapping out.
