swapped the fan last night, and this morning some hefty bending of bits with the screwdriver means my case is now shut. I think it is noticeably quieter. especially the hard drive. Not quite worth the money though somehow. Added to this I feel awfull. combination of hayfever and other ills I reckon. At least work will be cool today, lots of fun new stuff to add to the code. Luckily Lionhead starts work at 10am, so I miss most of the Rush hour traffic and get to surf a bit before work. Hurrah.
