Having had to get one or the other of this machine's two memory sticks
replaced under warrranty three times now for single-bit hard errors, I
figure I'm going to spend the extra 10% and buy ECC next time I buy RAM
for any of my fast Athlon boxes.  Probably consolidate all the non-ECC
RAM into the gamebox and stuff ECC in this machine.  Having to get a
256MB stick replaced for a single-bit error is sorta absurd.
