When i was but a wee poor student, i saved up for ages got a nice new mobo and AMD XP 2000, Stuck the usb cable from the case in the wrong way and set fire to the lot lol. Luckily i pulled the power cable out of the pc and only thing wrong was the onboard usb had melted Rest works fine to this day lol. Now when i got my new pc i read and reread the usb instructions lol.

I ruined one keyboard with half a can of Full Throttle, bunch of keys stick. Spilled Full Throttle on another keyboard, and its still fine somehow. And I managed to bend pins on my A8N32 SLI-Deluxe mobo, on the IDE port, floppy port, and one of the optical drives. The floppy port is still bent lol.

Heh, with my old case from my Pentium II, I couldn't find some of the screws to take it apart, so I just ripped it apart. And now...I have a case made out of legos!
