Business case: If we lose power, the hardware is so old they may not spin back up and we won't be able to find parts to repair the boxes if the motherboard, CPU, or RAM decide to go south.

Smile | :)


(This happened to me a few months ago - lost power, and the 5-year-old motherboard went to hell in a handbasket. Had to replace the motherboard, CPU and RAM because I couldn't find a new motherboard that would accept the old parts. :/
