    Better is the intermittent power supply. The usual liars and frauds can
    claim that any issues are down to MS controlled electricity supply!

    When i used to work for big blue back in the late 70's and early 80's,
    whenever a 3033 mainframe had problems they used to blame it on "silver
    migration" in the interconnecting cables.

    Sounds much like the excuses the Linux crew uses today.
