hmm, so i gather the usual mode of mdadm isn't monitor mode.  perhaps that
could explain why mine didn't email me on the 30th when an array did a
re-sync.  or perhaps the array that did a resync isn't listed in the
mdadm.conf here because it was created since the original install.  all
arrays here work, even tho some aren't listed in mdadm.conf, so clearly the
content of mdadm.conf isn't too important for day-to-day operation.  mail
to root should forward to me:

># mdadm.conf written out by anaconda

>ARRAY /dev/md3 level=raid1 num-devices=2

when I boot them (does not happen often)

must be your setup doesn't judge each new released kernel to be relevant
for your site's security.

One more thing. Is "Factor of 4" your new business or an old one? I looked

i'm just the nerd contracted to shepherd the OS/updates/backups/security,
you can see about the real actors at FactorOf4.net, they are good guys

this concludes test 42 of big bang inflation dynamics.  in the advent of an
actual universe, further instructions will be provided.
