Your Most Damage-Resistant Hardware?

Mija Cat Re:A quart of water into the monitor (945 comments)

A very similar thing happened to me.

I have an SGI Indigo workstation, in addition to this wintel box. IBM VGA monitor. Both monitors were on a table in my basement, tower cases under the table out of the way, and since I was using it as a server, the SGI was always on.

A valve overhead developed a leak and, over the course of a weekend, dumped a gallon or so through *both* monitors.

Left 'em to dry out for a week, and they both came back okay.

Hardware can be fun.
