So I rebooted the box on which latentcontent.net resides the other day, because I was experiencing strange behavior when trying to access NFS mounts on its secondary (private) interface. Namely, anything that used these mounts hung hard. Not being able to figure out anything obvious, I tried the old Windows solution and kicked the box; it didn’t come back up. Chris did me the favor of figuring out that my last PCI slot appears to have failed, which could explain things. This may be the downside of using cheap commodity hardware to run a web server. I’m now crossing my fingers that will be the last of the hardware failures for a while.
