    The photo shows the paperwork relating to the world's very first computer bug in 1945.

    Really interesting.

    When I used to fix things for schools, was once given an overhead projector to fix that kept blowing bulbs.

    When I opened it up there was a dead mouse wedged in the cooling fan, stopping it's rotation.

    Then there was the doggy wee-wee in a VCR and lastly - a bug! Cockroaches in a cassette deck.

    These were rare occasions but I did wonder about some of those London schools.

    A few years back I bought an old Playstation 1 from a friend. Sometimes the disks would skip,and sometimes not spin at all. So I opened it up and the inside was caked in cockroach eggs and dead cockroaches. Needless to say I have never stepped foot in said friends house since then :D
