Feeling kinda 'bleh' lately.

Depressed that seemingly simple projects drag on forever. Like getting more space for new servers and upgrading our network connection to the net to gigabit.

Also ticked at buggy software. MIME::Lite send_by_smtp bug (fixed in developer release, not in Debian)... Debian Woody to Sarge upgrade (multiple problems)...

And as always, angry at disks. Two identical machines... one's doing twice the load of the other. Seemingly identical config, kernels, memory, drive controllers, etc. But one has Fujitsu drives, and the other Seagate. Both 15k rpm, though. Could that be the difference between 2x performance? Wtf?
