The disaster that is Itanic makes all other processor problems look tiny.
Oh ya, gotta luv those rejecterons.
The disaster that is rejecteron makes all other processor problems look tiny. (the good news is that you should finally be able to buy a Barcelona server in a few months. That's only ~six months after the launch, hardly even worth mentioning such a delay.)
