Pournelle's law* is alive and well!!  My main Myth box had been 
crashing every day or so.  Logs weren't helpful.  I was getting ready 
to consign the box the great pile of Maybe Bad Hardware.  Then I 
happened to notice the video cable wasn't firmly seated.  Made sure 
it was fully engaged and I haven't had a crash in over a week!!


*"Check the cables first!"  Jerry Pournelle, Byte Magazine, circa 1982.
