And like that it was gone...

Well I've had a highly unproductive afternoon scrambling to rebuild my development PC after the RAID 5 decided to kill itself off... at first the pc reported one disk had fallen out of the raid... I brought it back in, rebooted, the machine started rebuilding the array then rebooted itself.. at which point it declared each disk was a member of different array... stuffed around with it for about an hour and contemplated throwing a 750gig drive in and doing a software-based recovery... but considering last time I did something like that it took a number of days to complete, I decided to just heave a large sigh, break the array up into individual disks and re-install (without RAID-5 this time...).

Thankfully between svn, google apps (gmail for domains, google reader) and I don't think a lot has slipped through the gaps, barring the odd bit of skype history.

Guess I know what I'll be doing this weekend.  bleh!
