My Home Server (RipNAS) died last night. I tried to resuscitate it, but to no avail this morning. I rang the shop that sold it to me. Apparently I was the second customer of the day to ring with a dead RipNAS. Some dud chips from Intel was the problem. So it has to go back, so I can get a new one. Fortunately they can save the music (c. 550 CDs). However, being the cunning chap I am, I had copied all my music to an external backup disc so I can use that for my music system. I’m patting myself on the back for a good bit of contingency planning!
