I've been having problems with mine of late.  Causes a kernel panic,
which is quite ugly.  I'm going to guess it's about 2 years old, but
I've not burned a lot on it either.  I'm going to pull it out of this
box and stick it in another running a different kernel and dist to see
if it has something to do with either of those issues.
