Hi guys and girls,

I was home for holidays in July, built a machine a few days before I 
left, got it working with Ubuntu and it looked good but maybe the power 
supply is a bit variable with the wattage it supplies, not sure what the 
problem is but it'll run fine for a sporadic amount of time, sometimes 
minutes other times it'll go for a week or so...then crash.

I've checked /var/log/messages for hardware or daemons that have 
problems on start-up, can't see anything that looks to be causing the 
problem, what other log files would be a good place to look for finding 
hardware that's not responding so I can try to figure out where the 
problem is without being onsite?

This prolly sounds like a n00b question, I've been too busy with 
aviation studies in the last 1.5 years, haven't had much time to 
actually use many of my IT skills.
