You can find cheap (<$30 I think) watchdog timers for PC clones in BBS
magazines.  You'd have to port the software to NetBSD, but that
shouldn't be hard.  At least then when it crashes unattended it won't be
down for long.

As Neil McRae would probably say, "Hey, why don't you losers run a
*REAL* system, like SunOS?"

What a joke.  NetBSD is quite a bit more stable than SunOS in my
experience.  I get better support as well.  Sun wants big bucks for the
same marginal support you give for free.  :-)


NetBSD is worth every penny I paid for SunOS.
