Some days you can't win for losing.

Five minutes after going to bed lasat night, I realized I could get
minbar's (U30) 711 array back up by borrowing a disk from babylon4
(E3000), which I'm not running at the moment.  So I move stuff around to
wheel babylon4 out to where I can get at it, pop out a 9G Cheetah, pop
it into the 711, boot minbar, perform the necessary metadevice frobbage
and newfsing etc, start restoring data ......   and an hour later the
replacement disk craps out with a sense error and warns me failure is


Lather, rinse, repeat .......  it's now restoring for the second time,
with a second disk pulled out of babylon4.
