14. Watch cat come by while testing fans and bump power supply with tail, shorting a connection.
Reading that made me want to wake up my siamese and berate him a bit
Seriously, beleive it or not that is one critical
detail which I am so glad you included, and you did so in a such a casual manner that made it comical (don't misunderstand -- I hate that this happened to you).
But the reason I say this is critical is because my cat always comes snooping about whenever I have my case open on the floor. He is a classic "curious" cat. It never occurred to me that he might be carrying an electrostatic charge. From now on, I will make sure I am quarantined whenever I need to pop the case.
Thank you for you story and best of luck with your new power supply.
