GnuCash Server downtime

Just an FYI.  You may have noticed that the GnuCash server has
been having issues lately.  Apparently it's beginning to have
a hardware problem.  Twice now it has crashed with the following
log output:

CPU 0: Machine Check Exception: 0000000000000004
Bank 0: cc0000ff20040189[0018c00002a80310] at 000000003995c180
Bank 1: f200000000000105
Bank 2: d000000000000153
Kernel panic - not syncing: CPU context corrupt

I'm still in Europe for the next 10 days so I can't really
explore why this is happening.  It could be a bad mobo, bad
memory, or even a bad PSU.  But I can't explore it until
I return home.  And when I do start to explore, it will
require some service downtime.

In the meantime, if you notice the machine is down please come
to #gnucash on and let me know.  I've got a few
people I can contact to kick the machine while I'm gone so I
should be able to at least get it back up.

Once I return home I'll explore more about why it's failing so
frequently.   I'll keep people informed.

Worst case, it's time to buy a new piece of hardware.
