Hacker News has a fairly good track record causing something resembling the Slashdot effect at least on lower capacity servers.

I even have an old 20 MB hard drive that I bought for an Atari 520ST that still works, and the Atari still works, too! Can't do much with it nowadays, but it still runs the programs off the hard drive just fine.
Case fans are my bugaboo. I guess I should buy better ones. I've had several fail over the years. No other failures except one small power supply. I'm either lucky or I just maintain my machines better.
