Color Classic gets a new home

The Color Classic was offline briefly for a cleaning and a short move into another room at our residence. Instead of being located in our master bedroom (where the cable modem had been installed) it's now down the hallway in the office. I don't know how well I will be able to sleep without the gentle hum of the SCSI hard drive constantly in the background.

Before the move I took the opportunity to open it up, slide out the logic board, and carefully blow off two years worth of dust that had settled on the surface. I also vacuumed the interior, side vents, floppy drive opening, and fan slots on the back which all had quite an accumulation of dust, lint, and cat fur. Hopefully it will run a little cooler now.
