We also have financial problems in local government and have a bridge to sell - unfortunately ours does not lift up, but on the plus side it is high enough above the water for most boats to fit under. It will be put on eBay soon, but for now here is a picture:

Yes. The crashes seem to be very clustered. We have had 5 specific
machines out of 23 crash repeatedly. We swapped the motherboard+cpus
on those and they do not seem to have crashed again as yet. But the
time scale is only about 2 weeks. So I am not very confident of the
statistical significance of my conclusions.


Rahul, run that past us once more please.
You have bought 23 machines and FIVE of them have had CPUs and motherboards replaced?
Errrrr...


By the way, I live in London, UK. The news is our local government had lots of money in an Icelandic bank, which they've now lost. As a consequence, they are looking to sell off objects of historic significance which they own. I can put you in touch if you are looking for a Victorian-era lifting bridge.
