Broken light switch

One of the bedroom lights switches broke in the evening. Managed to put the components back which is a risky thing to do and then got it to function by using lots of tape.

The next day, I got a new switch and replaced it. Since I had to turn off the power supply, that killed the server as it appears that the mainboard battery is not working and the settings were lost. Since there were no entries in the NVRAM, the system could not boot to Arch Linux.
