I just about suffered a  FEB 27 2002

I just about suffered a heart attack this morning. A 40Gb drive on my Linux server somehow unmounted itself between reboots. To my untrained eye, it looked like all my wonderful data (including some not-backed-up design work I'm doing for a client) had been banished to the land of wind and ghosts. Luckily, cooler heads prevailed before I was able to commit seppuku with the hard drive platter, and the drive was remounted with little effort. Long story short: if backing up files were an Olympic sport, I'd have the gold medal no problem right now. Triply redundant backups aren't too paranoid, right? Right?!??!
