    Dude, your freakin Dell just blew up!

    While specifying instrumentation tag names on a flow drawing my attention is turned towards the haze building up on the other side of the engineering area. I started hearing some distant prattle about “fire”, “hmmm... what could this possibly be?” I think to myself. Upon further investigation I've come to the conclusion that someone's Dell laptop just freakin blew up and started a cozy little desktop fire!!!

    Actually MsM, this is a new incident about a month after the Japanese one in that link.

    This is not an uncommon event for Dell:


    Apple and HP have also had similar problems IIRC.
