So many people answered me, it's amazing. I'm still getting answers about
this. I think all of you sent me a reply... I've got over 60 names so
far, which is way too many to list, but thanks to all who answered.

Very, very few (something like 3) of the people who answered said they
had similar problems. Of the rest, most of you asked if I know whether or
not my power-supply is stable, or if I'm keeping the server in a suitable
location. Well, we've got some big UPSs and powerlevel thinggies in the
computer rooms, and the server's is in a suitable location.

In other words, it's very rare to have SS's with problems at all, and
having them as frequently as I do is even rarer.
