    Well, I remember that we had this before the meltdown. But I don't remember the original title of the thread.

    But here is my contribution to the never endind FUN :p of blowing up, smashing or burning old or non-functioning computers or their innards. :D



    This is Le Mac Flambé...
    The offering to the computer gods is an old (way old) 5300 monochrome Powerbook. :p

    [Edit]
    This thread is the reincarnation of the old "Hardware Kill" thread.

    Claw hammer to the screen for a start (you know you want to ;))
    Larger hammer or baseball bat .. Improvise :p .. to beat the s**t out of the outter casing and remaining tube (I'm guessing it's a CRT?)

    Yes it is a CRT. Well one thing I'm worried about is that someone told me that those things have electricity in them even when they are turned off for years, and I don't want to electrocute myself.
