Tut tut, don't you know not to smoke in the machine room, nor eat food
at the computer?  ;-)

I can't say that I've actually come across a dirty CD/DVD laser, yet.
But I've come across plenty of PCs where just about everything, inside
and out, has been coated with filth.  Houses with open fireplaces seem
to be the worst, you get this really sticky residue that'll hold onto
anything that floats in the air.

Makes me wonder if they're like valves in gear that's used a lot - the
operating heat burns off the small amount of dust that lands on them
while off, and the slight thermal draught stops dust landing on them
while working.
