Unplanned service window

It must be one of those weeks where every piece of hardware that can fail, will fail. While beastie is still synching its data after the last breakdown, my main server, koala, suddenly disappeared. I was already fearing that it had burned down yet another CPU fan, which would just be typical few days before leaving on holiday, but it turned out our electrician was working in the same rack as koala and had by accident pushed to the power cord which fell out.
On the bright side, I have just bought some extra RAM for koala and was planning on installing it after I returned from holiday, but now koala was down anyway it seemed like a good time to do it now. So far it looks like koala is very pleased with its extra RAM. And it all ends well in the end.
