Switch burned out this morning

Could not get to the servers when I woke up so rushed into work. It took me a while to find the problem as everything seemed to be working fine, even the T1 which was my first guess as going down. It turned out being my main switch which connects the servers and such was dead. Damnit. It put in an old 10Base switch at 8:39 to try and hold the network till the stores opened up. Many services ran, albiet slowly, but Mail would not work. Damnit. Luckily the Barracuda was caching everything. As soon as I got a new Netgear switch and replaced it, things worked again as usualy. So, only traffic between 4:37 am and 8:39 am was lost.
