Downtime for Hard Disk maintenance

From: Russell McOrmond <russell@flora.ca>
Date: Sat, 30 Jan 2010 16:48:36 -0500

   One of the disks in the raid was showing that it had some errors. 
Normally I would have put this disk into a spare machine to do disk 
maintenance, but I didn't have a spare machine that had the right 
controller (My desktop is SATA and both disks in the server are ATA).

   So I ran the disk maintenance on the server itself, bringing the 
various Internet servers down:  calcutta (flora.org), hugli (Mail, DNS) 
and newdelhi (digital-copyright.ca, etc).
