When weird things happen to good computers ...

I was happily downloading Hikaru no Go episode 14 while reading an anime forum, having just completed the evening's DAoC session. Suddenly the computer turned itself off, instantly, as if someone had pulled the power. I tried to turn it back on, and nothing happened. I pulled out the plug, put it back in, tried again. Nothing happened. But when I did it again a few minutes later, it started quite fine.

The most obvious explanation would be overheating ... but in Norway in the middle of winter? True, I'm sitting in my shirt here, but just barely. In the summer, even boxers is hot. If I can't use my computer then, I'm not going to be quite a happy as I usually am.
