Hmm.. My personal “local-only” server went down a few days ago, I think because the MB died (first it was starting and showing red for the “CPU” and “DRAM” LEDs, then it stopped booting entirely).

It’s still under warranty, but when I do an RMA from ASRock I get an internal server error 500. I suspect that even when I finally get them to accept the RMA, it will be some time (weeks?) before I get a new motherboard. I could have a new motherboard from MicroCenter for $120 this evening, so I guess I’ll just do that.

On the plus side, I suppose this means I’ll have a backup motherboard if the new one ever goes out. Maybe I should get a backup CPU as well to reduce downtime.
