No, just an old dusty motherboard. All we are is dust in the computer fan...

Could be sawdust, but it`s more likely ceramic dust. Too fine for textile shop work, too evenly spread to have ever been inside a working box. This is art. Identify the board and win 1000 Internets. Gen 1 AGP slot.(only rear spacer) 2x PS/2 ports, top mount 20 pin ATX connector, 9 pin serial header, no aux +4 connector, Parallel port, 2x IDE headers, floppy connector, more capacitors than I`ve seen in a decade.. Too much dust for me to be sure it`s not SD-RAM, but the fact that there are 3 slots says it is, or it`s a first gen DDR meaning this is either a Pentium 3 board or a socket-a AMD board. Most SD-RAM boards came in odd numbered slot configurations. There were many fewer DDR boards due to dual channel being introduced. Socket 370 and Socket-A were both shipped using SD-RAM and DDR-RAM. I`m pretty sure the clue is going to be the large number of voltage regulators around the CPU socket. The classic style of the north-bridge heat-sink is another hint. Soltek, Biostar, or MSI?

I`d guess that`s sawdust, based on colour. And I could logically see someone using a computer in a shop, maybe to look up parts or patterns or something.

This must have been sat on a shelf somewhere, there is dust on the processor socket, IDE strips and the RAM slots.

you`d be surprised how common this kind of thing is - worked at a computer store and had one come in I had to vacuum out a little more cluttered than this

Nice one. Reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode (and the Simpson`s homage) about the tiny people people building cities and thinking humans were giant gods.
