[ldm-users] Weather2.admin.niu.edu update

Weather2's hard drive hung in there through the weekend, complaining about unreadable sectors every 30 minutes, but it hung on. Now, however, it's being dragged behind a car at high speed on a rope, just to see how far it goes before it disintegrates. Just kidding...Monday morning sarcasm in full mode. The new hard drive is now in; as I type this, it's being formatted and installation of the OS should be underway by 18Z. Full service on weather2 should be restored around 23Z, barring no unforseen circumstances. If you have weather and weather3 as backups, this is an informational outage notification only. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Has anyone tried dragging a hard drive down a road from a rope to see how long it lasts? ;-)
