Well there is a machine that is "a hot backup" problem is that I am going 
to be taking it with me when I go home over break....

I am not going to take it offline unless one people want me to do it now.
Christmas comes along. during chrismas when "NO ONE is here" I don't 
trust things anyway. I plan on building it over christmas unless people 
want me to do it now... I will change a few hard drives around on the 
next round and be adding some others. 

I just want opinions before I do anything.

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader.  The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient.  (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
is beyond the scope of this article.)
