Imagine that! Threw a monitor and keyboard on it and upon start up got the SMART message the HD was failing. Swapped it out with a spare, re-imaged and it seems good to go and crunching happily along. Good thing it happened today because We are going on vacation the 31st thru Sept. 7 and wouldn't have been here to take care of it.
I am going to leave them running while I am gone and hope there are no power outages. The stepson will be here so he can at least give the internet a kick if that should hiccup.--
