CPU fan broke down

This morning at about 05.00AM the CPU fan in the server broke down, causing the system to shut down. Fortunately, I was visiting my parents this weekend (where the server is at), so I managed to fix it and boot the server up before I left. If my dad hadn’t noticed it was down before we left, we would probably have had to wait a week until I got a chance to look at it. Also, I was very lucky to find another CPU fan that fitted on the MB in another computer! So even though this very critical part in the system broke down in the middle of the night, I managed to get a new one and replace it and have the system up and running in less that two hours! (the box is (normally) a 1.5 hour car ride away from my place.) Impressive, huh? 🙂
