Had a drive failure1, which caused the system to reboot2, which caused a lengthy filesystem check because we'd been up so long3, which when circumvented allowed us to boot cleanly, which highlighted a networking glitch4, which when fixed allowed us to find the database corruption5 which we've now fixed allowing us to get back on the air.

2 Grrr Adaptec! 6

Never took a liking to their product.
I'll buy Seagate or Hitachi, even (ugh) Fujitsu, before I buy something from WD.

Here it is. We all know that 'captcha' sucks. But what if you added captcha for any comment that included 3 or more hyperlinks? You'd catch 100% of the spam, and maybe half a percent of the nonspam. You'd win, aussie! Oi!
