My first setback has been a hazy one. I went to plug in Torvalds Elder on Friday and was immediately treated to a 'fun' pyrotechnics display. A cap (or something else along those lines) in the PSU exploded causing a loud snap and heaps of smoke as well as a delightful aroma which happily propagated throughout my entire house and cube. Luckily, my house and cube don't smell anymore, Torvalds Elder is back home at the Hardy House, and the great and powerful Gandalf is taking it's place and, ironically enough, summoning far less smoke and lightning than it's predecessor. Now we'll see whether Gandalf wants to be cooperative or whether there will be another setback post (I'm thinking it'll be the latter, but I'm hoping for the former).
Edit: This took approximately 1.5 hours.
