Site outage, should be OK now

I spent a good portion of yesterday swapping the main drive out of my
home server because it was giving me signs that it was starting to fail
(random system halts, CRC errors, and undecipherable messages about DMA
support). After much wailing and gnashing of teeth, it seems to be
back online.

The serendipity of finding this Coding Horror post in my news
reader this morning was surprising. I’d long ago given up on upgrades
for similar reasons. I don’t like using computers, I like
programming them. Upgrading and reconfiguring mail, apache, etc. is no
fun and usually just serves to make me grumpy.
