More Memory & Outage

Ylum (the machine that is and several other names) was up and down a bunch this evening.  I added a Gigabyte of RAM, which should be a straightforward operation.  It’s not so straightforward when you slightly dislodge the motherboard power connection.  If you’re curious, on ylum’s motherboard the first service you lose when you do that are the cooling fans.  It took a while to figure out why the machine was suddenly intermittent, but the firmware seems to have saved all the hardware, and now all is well.  In fact, better than well as ylum’s got twice the memory it had this morning.
