I am thankful for my old gigabit switch getting “louder”. As annoying as the sounds may get, I understand this as one last, loyal yelp to let me know he is about to die…which I appreciate as opposed to him just up-and-dying on me immediately without my having a replacement ready.

You’ve been good to me ol’ pal. Let’s ride this thing out with some hardcore, chatter-heavy database transactions. Maybe we’ll throw in some video streaming as well — maybe a nice Netflix movie in commemoration.

Anyone have an apropos movie suggestion(s)?
