this is why we can't have nice thingsMonday was actually not bad at work. There were some stupid problems with some old database stuff, which were actually mostly fixed after I found what had gone wrong. It’s amazing how much /opt/sybase/OCS/lib looks like /opt/sybase/OSC/lib, where the second one fails miserably with hard-to-understand errors while the first one works perfectly. Against stupid typos, the very gods themselves contend in vain.

And when I got home, I found that yes, the second disk in my RAID-1 is dying. Just wonderful. This is why I have a RAID-1, in case of single-disk failure, but it’s still annoying since that disk is the newer and larger one of the pair. Sigh. Another pair of disks is on its way from suppliers over the Net.
