My build server died yesterday. I was working along, minding my own business, when I smelled smoke in my office. A bit of olfactory detective work lead me to my build server, which currently sits between a couple bookshelves behind my desk. I killed the power and discovered that the video card in the box had died, leaving a crater along the edge of the card and a big pile of soot on the motherboard.

Gotta love technology.
