This is the remote Pi when acting as a VPN proxy. No dogs around and it is
cased with heatsinks.
At the moment all I know is that the client will lose connection to the
RasPi over WiFi and _sometimes_ doing a down/up on wlan0 will solve it, but
the only guaranteed solution is a full restart.
I have not yet had the chance to grab logs and see if I can figure out what
crashes when.
There are loads of complaints about the flakeyness of the broadcom drivers,
I do not think it is the memory card.

I'm actually considering just scheduling a daily restart,
