Been getting some weird crashes on my old (and extremely well used) Thinkpad T460, and sure enough, got a few errors in a Prime95 stress test. Looks like six years may have been all I could get out of the old workhorse.

Really intermittent CPU errors, which probably means something motherboard related. At least there's no problem with the storage and I can take my time getting the data off of it.
