yeah, even metaphysical police have the same habits.

are you buying all this equipment from the same vendor? maybe the drives are 
being stressed in some prior environment. even if different vendors are 
involved, they might use the same wholesale supplier.

what version(s) of linux are you using? the only other thing that i can think 
of--and this is really far-fetched--is that you've got some wildly mangled 
application going medieval on your drives. 

actually, one more thing comes to mind: the local power system and/or the 
power outlet your computer is attached to. is it possible that there are 
dramatic surges on the power line?

that's all i've got. it's certainly an unusual story. i'm intrigued. if you 
find out what's responsible, let me know.
