Exception that proves the rule: I have two original VIA 8000 boards living in 
hand-made boxes. One of these is my firewall and the other provides all the 
network services - DHCP, Network boot, LDAP, etc. Both have been running without 
any problems for at least four years, the firewall for six.

I have started checking them every so often for bad caps, however, since reading 
about the potential problem on this list.
