From the submitter:

My new video card is rather LARGE, and there was only one slot on the motherboard which could accomodate it. It's VERY close to my sound card (which also cannot be moved), and I noticed a strange "ping..ping..PINGPINGPING" sound coming from the case. All the heat generated inside was making the entire video card warp slightly (this only occurs when playing Fallout 3 with LOTS of mods) and the fan was coming into contact with some of the solder points on the sound board! Yikes!

He had problems with overheating so he decided to fix it with little pieces of plastic? This should end well.

I was too cheap to buy the cord to hook up the iPad to my exercise bike's screen and there was no ledge to set it on like a book. So I kludged this together using some suction cup hooks mounted to the screen and a spring clamp.

I came for the kludge, I stayed for the music. Bonus points if you can name this album!

Finally found a good use for the free shower cap! Now I can take a shower longer than 12 minutes and not be left in the dark.

I know this site's tagline is "white trash repairs" but I tend to stay away from those words. But when you have a photo including Bud Light, Busch Light, a Wild Turkey poster and are browsing a fishing website... you're not exactly doing yourself any favors.

Wanted hot water, but had unpleasant company downstairs. So I decided to heat it using what I had in my room at the time.
