"An upgrade of the motherboard is considered to result in a ?new personal computer? to which Microsoft® OEM operating system software cannot be transferred from another computer."
Further hazards of using proprietary software.
I've had motherboards die before - and been replaced under warrenty with different models. Glad I don't seriously use Windows these days.

Southwest London local radio station.
The interesting part is how they're doing Internet streaming: they've got regular Real and MP3 streams, but they've also got an AAC stream fed from before their audio processor, which sounds surprisingly good for 64Kbit.
They've also got a good collection of rants about DAB quality.
