Dale was having a crisis at work. An important server kept overheating but he couldn’t let the computer be down–people have to keep working while Dale waits for parts. So he constructed a box fan mechanism (heh) to cool it off while it was running.
As you can see, he was very happy when it worked. That’s Dale–showing off his work computer being cooled by a huge box fan that is taped to the side of it.
He’s an innovator, that Dale!
