Rebuilding an old PC that's been sitting in my closet for at least a year... good times.

one of the biggest lans in the country is so close I can drive home to sleep, no real need for ITX :o
I want to try ITX because I’ll eventually get rid of my hard drives and won’t “need” the extra space.

But now with the rumors circling of the power requirements of next generation GPUs that may be a bad idea. SFF power supplies may not be able to hang.

Well fuck..... Grabbed a cup of what I thought was brass pennies. But they were zinc. What a fucking mess... It didn't melt but burst in to flames. May have ruined my crucible. :(

Well hell. It turned in to a foam. :eek3:

Edit: I think I made sunscreen, zinc oxide.
Is zinc oxide toxic to humans?


* Zinc Oxide can affect you when breathed in. * Exposure to Zinc Oxide can cause “metal fume fever.” This is a flu-like illness with symptoms of metallic taste in the mouth, headache, fever and chills, aches, chest tightness and cough.

Hope you're outdoors and wearing a good mask

Outdoors with a good breeze. I let it burn itself out before I went anywhere near it.
