Started writing code in 1982 (in college) and haven't stopped since. I've used C++ to build applications for Libraries (the kind that lend books) and Banks and sleep labs. I've also written Java for banks.

Been working with Django since 2009 and have used it to build solutions for banks, sleep labs, and ALS clinics.

Written a SPA in extjs4 with a Django backend used by midsized banks to help their lockbox customers process incoming payments.

Built a labor scheduling tool for the entertainment industry that uses AngularJS for the frontend SPA and Django rest framework for the back end API and DJango views for reports.

I've been the rescue engineer for 911 calls that were getting lost, SQL queries that were so slow the application was timing them out, and written various scripts to patch around otherwise broken software packages where the source code was not available.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away I wrote kernel code for Unix SYSV in the ethernet/FDDI arena for Intergraph.

Thanks, that is what I was trying to find. I hate it when links aren't underlined are in a font that looks like normal text. Thank you.

This is a rackmount case with a hot swap backplane. I've run smartctl test=short test on all the drives and ALL of them pass! I'll have to run the longer test over the weekend.

comment How do I figure out which drive is failing?
Looks like the model # of the drive is in dmesg. How do I get to the /dev/sd? device, or to something that will physically identify which drive needs to be replaced, like a serial #? I have 6 drives of the same model in this machine.
