so, if that error rate were applied to a year's worth of hosting you'd
be down for 5 minutes and 15 seconds...

i'd rather not be dead for that long... under 2 minutes is acceptable,
because hopefully then brain damage won't set in (any more than it
already has)...

applied to my weight, that's 3/10 of an ounce i'd lose every time i
transported... which might be a good weight loss program if they
*increase* the error rate...
