ROACHES! Two of the people I service computers bring me systems
that tend to be roach-laden. My wife forces me to leave the boxes outside

overnight before bringing them in for repair.

Nothing like roach crap, carcuses in cobwebs and the occasional live
critter running in and around the power supply. I litterly have to spray
out with air, and them clean out the insides. Roach-infested computers
cost more to fix! ;)
