Well, that was fun . . . NOT.

About 38.5 hours of solid downtime. The computer that has been hosting these sites became completely erratic in its behavior and I was frankly uncomfortable turning the thing on anymore. I went out and bought parts and build a completely new system–no used components at all, which is a first for me–and right now have hobbled back on-line by adding the hard drives from the old system and am booting off them.

This would never work with Windows.

There will be more downtime today and tomorrow while I’m figuring out how best to transfer all the data onto the new machine in a way that makes sense. Linux is still kinda rough around the edges when it comes to software RAID, large hard drives and partitions, and GPT.
