It looks like I am buring up more hard drives than I can buy around here :)

We are not losing the debian.org drive but we are losing drives that are 
not even being used yet.

I am currentyl making tape backups of the system and therefore are 
stopping uploads from happening. (and downloads for that matter.)

which caused us to lose 75% of the packets going across the line. Today 
that has been fixed by CISCO and we are back running except I am making 

Folks I have two choices for you..

1 I bring the machine down now to fix the problem and unpgrade the OS to

the next three weeks while we wait.
