It really does seem that if you're going to have a problem, it's going to happen at 4:30 Friday afternoon. Last week, mine got a jump on me by attacking at 3pm or so.
The power supply crashed on my desktop workstation, and I spent the last few hours trying to bring it back up. I finally kludged together a single power supply from two, and now that the machine is back up and running, my OS drive is having problems.
Of course, I could re-install since my home directory is on another drive...but my DVD-ROM died because the power supply fan stopped turning a while back, apparently, baking the drive, so now I get all kind of fun read errors.
It's going to be one of those weeks.
