True, it's pretty hard to tell customers "hey, we have flaky ram, take a more
expensive stick!" :-)

Nah, if you crashed a few times close to each other, just check the mem, stick
in another stick, done. Lost work hours will be less then the 100 or so bucks
you dig up for good RAM. Or just keep a smaller spare stick, or plug in 2
from the beginning so you can temporary go on with only 1, or solve the
problem in software, or...
