Out of the Blue

Well, just as I start using my new extra-hot man-stove, the county where we reside has issued a "red flag" warning based on the possibility of wildfires due to the dry windy conditions in the area, where the drought condition has been upgraded to "severe." This does not actually prohibit grilling, but it does give pause. I wonder if I could actually spin this as a reason to move the grill on the deck to *prevent* a fire hazard? Probably not. Well, at least the forecast calls for the possibility of showers this week, so maybe that will help.

Bah!...a grill on the lawn, next you'll be telling us you "spread" your thermal compound on the CPU.


The last rebuild I did I didn't even use any special goop - - I just used the pre-installed glob that was on the fan.

I remember when this was really a hot-button issue ....

It still is. I wipe all that crap off and apply a very nice portion then level it out with a credit card or similar device. Evenly distributed across the connection, then wipe excess off once parts are secured.
