Smoking tobacco is bad for computers and other living things.

I've seen picutes of charred lungs, trach rings, and other common "shock smokers into quitting" media, but for some reason this one made me feel iller than actual bits of former humans.

I've gone through two power supplies on my computer. Tobacco smoke wreaks havoc on the fan. Those pictures just make me glad I didn't switch to Macs though. PCs can seem to handle it a little better.

Not MUCH, but better. Fortunately I've seriously cut back on my smoke intake. Eventually the theory is I'll quit altogether, but probably not before I go through another power supply. The pooter's starting to make those funky noises again...

I can't imagine what the rest of this guy's house looks like.

When I was smoking I had to clean my computer, along with most surfaces, every two weeks to keep that beige bright... (small apartment, don'tcha know.) After quitting, it gets cleaned 2, maybe 3 times a year. Big f'in diff.
