Jury Rig #783


What you are looking at, is one of those laptop cooling pads with USB activated fan, duct taped to a side mounted Mac Mini.
Talk about a missionary field fix!

The fan on my main computer went out, and I installed a software to tell me if it was getting too hot.  Well, after a while it got too hot without a fan, and, wouldn't you know it, there are no Apple Stores nearby that I could go and pick up a spare internal exhaust fan.

So, I mounted the computer on its side, opened it up (left the cover off) and duct taped a make shift fan to it... and viola.. it is working!

This of course is a stop gap measure until I can get the $14 part here from the U.S.
