R.I.P. Airport Extreme Base Station

It’s dead Jim... After 2 years of service, exactly to the day when I placed the order, something in our Airport Extreme Base Station has gotten a little heat sensitive and as a result, the AEBS dies - I think it’s the CPU on the board... Oh well... Time to order another refurb from the Apple Store, methinks.

For now I’m running it without the base and upside down but it still gives up the ghost occasionally... I might try running it without the case (see this link) and just the bottom plate for that exposed look. The 3 port Ethernet switch stills works though...
