list server and web content is back up now, on the new hard drive. I was
hoping to just add the new drive, keeping the existing drives, copy the
content from one drive to the other, then yank the old drive and move the
new one to it's place. But nooooo there's only two hard drive power cables
in the chassis, and I had no Y cable with me. Sooo had to move all the
content to another server, replace the drive, move it all back... yikes.
Gigs upon gigs takes a LONG time to copy, even on 100bT.

Anywho, everything should be back up. Let me know if there are any problems.

I have the old drive home now, I'll blow that away and load a new copy of
FreeBSD on it with all the newest software we use, then sometime soon go
back to the datacenter and put in the new OS drive.

Oh, donations can stop... I have enough to cover the drive and the two
memory panels. I may put in the memory panels friday morning.

Sorry for the long interruption tonight!!!
