are easily replaced.

 Good question - not sure what the card cage is used for, I was not 
expecting to see one in there when I opened it today.  Fortunately the 
computer itself is not corroded like the card cage in the bottom of the 
cabinet.  Worst case you can remove the 11/44 from the cabinet entirely.
