Sure it wasn't the drive? The controller? Cosmic rays flipping bits in
your (non-ECC) RAM? OK, maybe I put just a little too much trust into
it, but most of the bug reports coming on reiserfs-list nowadays turn
out to be either non-reiserfs related or turn out to be hardware faults.

There are still bugs of course, but people are also finding new ones
in ext2 from time to time.

Oh, you do stick with your regular backup schedule, do you? This is
computing after all :)
