Today is a bad day for the box

In my morning check of my systems, I found that box wasn't responding....

I figured at first that the scheduled mondoarchive of the system had run long (which I normally run at 6 month intervals....March and September....kind of surprised that March had snuck up on me).

So, I went on to box to take a look at what it was doing....and it was bad. The harddrive had failed a minute into the backup. Strange that's when the previous harddrive failed. Perhaps it wasn't a harddrive problem last time...but a more serious system problem.

Wonder if I can afford to replace it. :**:

The bigger problem is what do I do in the mean time. Can I recover enough to resurrect this critical piece of my home network? How are the remaining bits even working...the machine is my local DNS server, hmmm....starting to have trouble accessing sites on the Internet.... and it is also my DHCP server. And, it is a router to part of my network.... :??:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
