May I say I HATE 3ware Raid?  I have about 500 servers at work with
Linux software RAID and 8 with 3ware hardware raid.  I have more
problems with the 8 thæn the other 500.  (yes there really are that
many in the field in production)

      These are MY OPINIONS ALONE.  I speak for no-one else.

Life is not a destination, it's a journey.
  Microsoft produces 15 car pileups on the highway.
    Don't stop traffic to stand and gawk at the tragedy.
