Less ept than usual


Three times today, I've poured coffee from the jug into the mug, and each time a bit of it has sloshed over the edge and down the side of the mug. I wonder if my body is trying to tell me something.

In other news, today I'm working with a server which has a disk which is failing. It goes like this:
  1. Reboot
  2. Give disk 1 a flick of the wrist while it's powering up so that it starts spinning
  3. Wait for OS to boot (from disk 0, fortunately)
  4. Check that disk 1 is responding
  5. rsync a bit more stuff from disk 1 to disk 2
  6. Watch until disk 1 goes offline
  7. Repeat from step 1.
In due course it'll all be copied and I can change a couple of mount points and we'll be up and running again. But meanwhile...
