KA-POW!!!

...said my PC's power supply. It's been making that awful freight train door rattling noise for a year now, which is just the fan brushes/bearings/whatever wearing out or gunked with dust. Usually I could slap the underside of the fan in the psu box to knock the wobble and noise out. But last night it wouldn't stop no matter how many pimp slaps I doled out.

So this morning I took it out, opened it up, and blew the dust out with an air compressor (NOT the aerosol can shit, the shit you blow sawdust off with and pump up car tires with, LOL). But I was not done, oh noooooo. Then I sprayed WD40 into the fans axle area. BECAUSE I'M FUCKIN BRILLIANT, hell yeah. Then I realized I had some electrical contact cleaner. (Too late, oops.) So ... I sprayed some of that in there too, shouldve done that INSTEAD of a flammable oil, but fuck, its too early to use logic, right? So then I get paranoid that the WD40 might drip or splash or mist onto a big high voltage capacitor and kill the PSU. So I'm standing there for 10 mins with my old ladys revlon hair dryer, trying to dry WD40 off my psu like a fuckin idiot.


I get it put back in and fired up... it's not rattling, yay! So I sit there browsing my usual morning bullshit... and very slowly but surely, the noise comes back. And then...


A sound like a 22 pistol blasts me in the ear, a quick burst of fire shoots out back of my PC, it starts pouring a noxious burnt plastic smelling smoke, and starts humming. I yanked the cord out of it.

So uh... yeah, WD40 and electronics arent friends.

Agreed, KDR is clearly being skewed by co-op play. The database stores separate stats for each server, but it looks like the web interface isn't smart enough to provide that filter yet.

Coop stats are not the same as playing on the other servers.  Those stats are kinda bogus stats really
