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.

Argh!

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