Fall down go boom. Lost a CPU in my dual-cpu server last night after I went to bed. For the last couple of weeks, the temperature monitor on it had been reading 195 degrees F, but I thought it was a mistake, since I could put my finger on it without yelping in pain. Either I’ve got a really high tolerance for pain, or else the CPU was fried, and it looks like the latter.
It’s a bad day for networks everywhere, I guess – we’re having problems at work, too. I was singing along to Better Than Ezra, mourning the loss of a firewall, when the webcam seemed to capture me in mid-word with my mouth wide open. Got a laugh out of that one.
