Subject: Netgear Network Switch fan broken. 

The Netgear Network Switch in the top shelf of Nodus' rack has a broken fan. It is the one interfaced to the Martian network.

The fan must have broken and it is has now started to produce a loud noise. It's like a truck was parked in the room with the engine running.

Also the other network switch, just below the Netgear, has one of its two fans broken. It is the one interfaced with the General Computer Side.

I tried to knock them to make the noise stop, but nothing happened.

We should consider trying to fix them. Although that would mean disconnecting all the computers.
