Don’t Underestimate the Challenge of Building a PC
A noise like a freshly lit sparkler in no hurry of going out told me Bad Things were happening. Flames suddenly shot out of the side of the computer I’d just helped my brother build. I screamed for him to pull the plug. He yanked it out of the power supply. Acrid smoke filtered through the room and the dogs fled the stench. Wide-eyed and breathless, power supply cord still in his hands, my brother said, “This was what I was afraid of.” When you’re building a PC, a lot can go wrong.
