And when I get into work this morning, my PC won't stay running. After deciding it's probably an overheating problem, I check the motherboard, and indeed, one of the CPU fans is obviously not happy.

Down into town. Jazz Computer Supplies isn't open.

OK, Baldock is 10 miles away, there's a PC shop there that will do components, I'm pretty sure.

And it's also shut.

OK, Stevenage PC World is next closest option.

Out of stock.


(Yes, it's now running, by scavenging a fan off a different heat sink from a different machine.)

I didn't realise your company was that small. I mean, don't you have people to do that kind of thing for you, or suppliers you use or something?

Well, a supplier would take time to get the item to us. Whereas popping a mile into town to get something would take no time at all.

And yes, I did check with our systems guy first to see if we had any spares in stock.
