It is real solid state!

These machines are extremely reliable - if permanently powered on! I've
one in my office, just to have a real Unix machine within the Windows
world. It has now an uptime of 1102 days. The problems will arise, if
these machines are powered off, esp. for a longer period of time. From
my considerations the powersupply is damaging the cpu-board, probably
based on voltage-peaks.
