   What?  Why do you say that?

   Besides...people are so used to these PCs that DIE ALL THE TIME that 
this sort of thing is actually a concern!

   I run a large number of 24x7 machines here.  I have had exactly two 
hardware failures in the past, what, six years?  No offense Patrick, 
but you've had more hardware failures than that in your colo facility 
within the past six WEEKS, on a fraction of the hardware.
