burning smell

This eve i noticed a burning smell so investigated [stuck hand behind
each machine to work out which was the hottest],  there was
no air coming out of the warmest machine

halted the machine and removed from pile, the following picture resulted

[excuse the blur -photography is not my forte!]

For those of you who dont wanna download the jpg, there was a dragon fly
broach inside the psu stopping the psu fan from spinning!

no idea how it got there -i dont own any broaches, could have blown
through a window but i find that unlikely!

The machine in question had been up, for about 2weeks decoding mp3s
-im suprised it hasnt caught fire! [debian reference: using

next task is to remove the broach...
