Hardware...

So, yesterday I reported we would get klik a new mobo and stuff. But over lunch I discussed it with our sysadmin at work, and he told me that he ball bearings of the CPU fan must have been worn out. Those things have an estimated working life of three years -- and of course, my computer had been on almost non-stop for three years.
Apparently, it's almost impossible to get CPU fans for P2 processors, but P3 CPU fans might fit as well. So tomorrow, we'll take the fan with us to the shop, to try to get a new one. That's the cheapest alternative now, we can always upgrade stuff later.

I've been worrying about/toying around with hardware way too much recently.
