Dat Parellel port tho...
I found a dead frog in a machine I was working on years ago. Dead mice, dead bugs, a dead rat. One case had been turned into a spider's luxury mansion complete with a network of webs FILLED with dead gnats and more egg sacs than you could shake a stick at. I also found a mouse nest IN a power supply once, I never did figure out the mechanics of that one.
I was just thinking of this with my linux based PVR. The machine was purchased in 2006/2007 and has had over a 99% uptime since then. I am not sure when I last cleaned it.
I blow my PCs now with a 10 amp leaf blower. I've never felt so much mismatched power and noise, it's like cutting cucumber with a bowling ball.
