It looks like redefine's (the server that hosts this blog) SCSI disk is failing. This machine has a 9Gb U160 10k RPM SCSI drive as its primary boot and root partitions, and a 160Gb IDE disk serving as /home. I was messing around from work today, trying to update my ports collection, and the machine has been acting strange. A hit from the dmesg command shows a lot of messages like this:
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Dump Card State Ends >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> (da0:ahc0:0:0:0): SCB 0x6b - timed out sg - Addr 0xb184000 : Length 4096 sg - Addr 0x7f85000 : Length 4096 sg - Addr 0xd546000 : Length 4096 sg - Addr 0xf127000 : Length 4096 (da0:ahc0:0:0:0): Queuing a BDR SCB (da0:ahc0:0:0:0): Bus Device Reset Message Sent ahc0: Timedout SCBs already complete.

Dang. Everybody who has data on this box should officially back it up, starting now.
