comment Replacement raid1 drive is one block smaller. What to do?
Excellent answer. In the end it turns out I added this drive and mdadm simply accepted it: /dev/sdb1 blocks=976760001 /dev/sdc1 blocks=976760832. The ext3 filesystem must not have quite filled up the original partition, so it all worked out OK. Had there been a greater size difference your technique is wonderful.

comment Something is burning in the server room; how can I quickly identify what it is?
For everyone recommending calling the fire department: keep in mind two hours after the EPO switch is hit, this poster would likely still have been searching for the smell. A subtle melted whatever can indeed take a while to locate.

Seven nearly identical answers, and one that's different.

comment What happens when wifi channels overlap?
Confusing answer, poorly written, and contradictory comments. Downvoting.
