Tough Puters Here

Guys,

This is wierd, can't be, nupe i'm posting on Ford forums via a computer that has been in a factory fire, basically this puter has been flooded with water via the sprinklers.

I inpected this computer thinking that it would be a rightoff and thus hassle the accounts dept. for a new puter.

To my bloody suprise it friggin works, had to use Domex cleaner to clean the case which was basically black and pulled it apart to check the inside.

Seems the case is water proof, the puter is a Gateway P5-120 super antique thing but tough.

As Mr Meldrew says "I doon't beeelieve it"....
:oo1: :oo1: :oo1:
