mushroom cloud

So, of course...

I shut one of my machines down tonight to have a look-see at its innards. I did my looking around, then started the box back up. The RAID card starts wailing. Poke, poke, poke So, of course one of the (admittedly older) SCSI drives has taken this opportunity to cease to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If it wasn't screwed to the drive tray, it'd be pushing up the daisies! It's metabolic processes are now history! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, it's shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!!

But that's what we have RAID volumes for.
