Bad RAM == Server Down
I just had one of the DIMMs go bad in my server. Not sure why, but I suspect it had to do with a large unshielded magnet being placed next to my machine. What sucks is that it was the 512MB DIMM that went bad, so now my POS server is down to 256MB. It still boots surprisingly fast, and really doesn't seem as sluggish as I was expecting.
