IIRC, there was a problem with an older rev. of LD's cooling system,
coupled with some problems with error checking on the NIC, and when the
webcast went out (I believe it was a world record for web traffic at the
time, may still be), the box's proc and mainboard got so hot it melted
and failed, including sparks and smoke. Pretty good argument for F5, I'd
say. :)

Man will occasionally stumble over the truth,
but most of the time he will pick himself up and continue on.
