It just got to -40°C/-104°F in my lovely russian town. Not only when I woke up I can't feel anything below my knees, when I boot up my laptop it makes an elephant roar for at least 30 seconds. Turns out the dust on a coolng fan turns to ice every night. Just great…

You should live closer to an equator. Take it from me, folks.

Damn. This thread is so dead, it reminds me of my deleted twitter page, where it was just me, the autist, sharing thoughts noone will read.

Anyway…

I think a human who goes under the name "porter" (assuming he's one) does a very good job at importing pics from derpibooru. However, I wonder if importing some of those images is really that nessesary, considering a fair amount of it is shit. I am all for integrity and freedom of speech, but it's just shit, dude. Like, come on. I can understand importing a hand drawn art or a vector but if it's just a screencap with text you really can just ignore it. assuming you are not a bot, you won't be able to import every single art that is dumped on derpibooru. It's just a basic human factor. So what about applying some kind of quality control, that prohibits some REALLY REALLY low quality "art"?

Either way, it's just something on my mind, not a real complaint or anything. It takes balls to take such a responsibility and it's more than welcome from my point of view.

Nice to know, fren. Great to have you around!

Don't put banana in ranch though. Just sour cream is fine. Back in russia we have a family cake recipe that includes mixing up 5 shredded bananas with sour cream, adding sugar, then using this substance as cake's frosting, spreading it in between layers evenly, while adding kiwi slices on top for more flavour. This is much more favourable than "holodetz" or russian dumplings.

Ah, a family cake recipe. I was starting to wonder why you were talking about bananas dipped into strange things.

As for the laptop thing, I'd imagine that a desktop PC would be easier to maintain. There's much more airflow in it, which would probably translate into not freezing shut at night. If you don't really need the portability of a laptop, then I think it might be worth looking in to getting a desktop after your laptop eventually dies.

speking of my laptop, I like to work on it in bed since it warms me up, especially if its under the blanket. In cold russian winter it's very nessesary to have a heater so to speak and the cooling laptop is suitable to fulfil that purpose.

Clearing the dust will make it more effective at transferring the heat from it's components to your room/bed. Depending on the model of laptop, taking it apart to clean it might be a pain in the neck, but I think it's worth it. It should feel almost like new.

One thing that strikes me kind of peculirar is that this exact day could be Lotus's DAMN birthday and nobody would even know about it.

Here's my shout out to you, my shadow popper. Keep risin' to the top, sun.

Why are you saying that SoftLava shouldn't clean his computer? It sounds like dust is seriously screwing with his computer's ability to pass enough air through it to cool it effectively. You want the generated waste heat out in the environment, not trapped in the laptop cooking it's insides.
