Hard to say. Both lead to sleep deprivation and intense pain, but Adaptec RAID controllers do not literally cause... Uh, I'll just cut of the metaphor at that point if it's all the same to you.
Let's just say it could have been better.
Thanks for fixing it up. Are you in the software RAID camp yet?

For most cases, yes. The new servers I just set up are software RAID-1 - a pair of disks and a pair of SSDs each. Cheap and easy to set up, and much less that can go wrong.

Glad to see you are recovering! That was an epic outage.

As if you didn't have enough problems, Brickmuppet and Wonderduck are both drowning in spam. (And you are, too.)

That's how we know things are back to normal.

Ooooh hate Adaptec RAID controllers. Sorry bout that. Unfortunately, my blog isn't back yet. Still getting the unavailable notice. I tried doing a cache check with Open DNS and it doesn't like it one bit. Luckily I've been too busy fighting with our Adaptec controllers to have much posting time. Ha.

Hi Teresa. Your blog has been restored on the server, but I need to fix your DNS, hang on at tick...

No problem. Like I said, I've been too swamped with stuff lately to blog much. LOL.

Kidneystones. Oh lord on a stick, I had a large kidneystone that threw off what I called kidneygravel for about a year. I thought I was used to the pain.
Then the Big One moved.
What I'm sayin' is, I understand what you experienced.

What I had was probably only mid-level on the kidney stone scale. I don't want to think what a really bad bout of kidney stones would feel like.

Steven - the extra bonus plus smilies are back!

Take what you experienced, then roll it in broken glass. Then set it on fire. Then shoot yourself in the head.
That last part is optional, but it's what I wanted to do.
