Adapters, cables, magnetic fields, smelly.

  1. Hello,

    My appartment was cleaned today, and there is a bit of a weird smell.

    I am not sure where it's coming from... could be outside...

    But could also be the cable modem adapter...

    I noticed it was kinda warm and there was another power cable lieing on top
    of it... which probably normally wasn't the case...

    Since some power is going through the adapter maybe the power cable is
    somehow interfering with it...

    Perhaps just taking up space... for warmth to go away... bit strange...

    It's probably nothing... but it did make me wonder... if a cable mess can
    screw up an adapter somehow... or maybe even cause it to catch fire ?! ;) :)


  2. Douse it with water and see if that helps.

    I am sure it will help the bandwidth issue here.

    You need to take up smoking, to cover up the weird smell. ;-P

  4. I suspect the weird smell comes from whatever he's smoking.

    Best regards,

    I was just gonna say that. A hand-rolled Van Nelle Halfzwaar, just one
    of those should do that :)
