I’m working on getting this machine back into presentable shape. What you see here is the aftereffects of being a smoker living for three years in a small apartment with little ventilation just a few blocks away from a major highway (I-5) in downtown Seattle, with _lots_ of dust, dirt, and crud in the air.

Ick.

Thankfully, the above conditions have changed (quitting smoking, moved to a new apartment that’s much cleaner). This morning I took the ‘puter out back of the building to blow it off with a couple cans of compressed air, and grabbed these shots before attacking it.

These compressed air cans get _really_ cold when you use them for more than just a few quick bursts! Actually hurt to hold onto the can after a while, then the frost started forming.

Cranking it up and getting the dust off to see if it still works. And it did. I still have the original Performa model….the first computer I ever bought. It still works as well as the 2 imac versions I got later…..a Blueberry and then a Graphite. I use a Mac Mini presently.

Trusted old G3 Blue and White Powermac (sitting on a shelf collecting dust these days) yielded two 64 Meg DIMMS – doubling the memory for the Colorlaserjet 4550n in the process. Yay for interchangeable parts!
