    The same could be said of any mail server that isn't RAID at
    the very least. Oh, let's demand an off-site backup before
    returning an OK status to the sender, and one of those S/390
    processors that runs two pipelines in lock-step to detect
    errors in the CPU. Swat the very last kernel bug too BTW.

    Really, this isn't a big deal. Maybe it wasn't the best choice.
    The drive probably lies to the OS anyway, so get over it.
