Another day another 38C. Another hour long trip in blazing heat, held up by *multiple* breakdowns. Another trip to the post office. Another dead disk.

So the boss says "attach the disk array to the other server, we need the disk space" and I say "but but but what happens if another drive dies" and he says "just do it, it'll be fine" so I do it, and another disk dies. Different disk, but this time instead of saying it'd been removed, it said it had failed. So I pulled it out, stuck it back in, and it's been rebuilding its raid array ever since. 52% and counting. Sent a screen dump of the failure to the boss. At the very next opportunity I'll be removing the old hardware from the equation, as it's almost certainly an old raid card attached to the box that's causing it to freak out.
