Trouble is they are so small that they get everywhere, including inside the LCD screens of our laptops, and desktops for that matter. Damn annoying when you don't suffer from dead pixels bu live ones instead, that wander all over the darn screen.

They die quickly enough, but then it depends where they die and where they stick...

I had never heard of them until I left the confines of Sarf Lunnon (South London for the uninitiated) for South Yorkshire.

Now I wish I had never heard of them.

The things are also called harvest bugs by some, and wrongly thunderbugs by others.

Not a lot you can do. In most cases it drops to the bottom and rots away without leaving any trace. The things are miniscule after all.

I've not had any cause permanent damage as of yet.

I still belive that the greatest damage to the hardware can be caused by "trial and error" method. (learned it a hard way)

And if you take out the BIOS chip, put it back the RIGHT way. Not the other -permanently dead mobo-

yeah also NEVER when your wiring the mobo, get the P(whatver number) power connectors wrong -P1 must be Mobo!

Me too. I remember when I forst got my Win98 computer. I used to access the Windows folder and never paid heed to the warning. When it said that a particular file is a system file and should not be deleted, I used to delete it to see what happens. End result? Rendered the system unbootable 6 times in the first month itself. But I sure as hell learned a lot....
