comment Is my hard drive about to die?
Well, it turned out the drive was healthy enough to survive a RAID resync. My other hard drive on the server died, and I could resync the array off the first one... I've updated the question text with details.

comment Amazon EC2 java installation problem
@djangofan I do that too, but the trick is to use the Oracle installer (not the Ubuntu partner repo package). See above.

comment Amazon EC2 + S3 + Python + Scraping - The cheapest way of doing this?
Thanks! The "instance types" page clears it for me. Something else crossed my mind - if you are running small instances you face the chance of being run on a hardware host with other small instances. And maybe those can saturate the host network interfaces and hurt EBS I/O performance. I remember reading somewhere that by using large instances you are least likely to run on a host machine that's under load from other users.

Can you point me to the documentation about limiting bandwidth according to instance type? This is the first time I see it, and I'd like to confirm it.
