Like most geeks I have a pile of roting hardware at home... Someone yesterday mentioned (vaguely) about utilities for testing hardware - especially RAM - but presumably this could be extended to other hardware - that would 1) tell you if it is OK. 2) isolate and by some mechanism make unusable sections of memory perminantly damaged.
I figured this would be quite usefull for redundant hardware (where age and lack of replacement parts might tempt one to hold onto hardware as long as possible) anyone have any idea if there is such a beasty?  I have a theory about geeks.... there are geek-wannabes, geeks, ubergeeks and Gnurus... and the process is progressive and non-linear.... -- Dr Paul van den Bergen Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures caia.swin.edu.au [EMAIL PROTECTED] IM:bulwynkl2002 "And some run up hill and down dale, knapping the chucky stones to pieces wi' hammers, like so many road makers run daft.
