Pardon Our Smoking Crater

Things might be bumpy today. I woke up to find the machine that hosts everything wobbling around on its last legs. Looks like the CPU fan died, lightly toasting everything (can't say it was 'fried' because the geek diagnostic manual specifically states 'fried' means 'non-functional'). The case, anyhow, was hot to the touch and most of the services running on the machine were segfaulting and the kernel was panicking. Attempted reboots got a temperature error.

So there's a new machine in place (glad I keep a spare), but who knows what sort of issues have crept in with me moving the hard drive over to this box?
