There was some talk tonight about hard drive failures.  I couldn't 
remember the name of the tool set I had used to solve some long 
standing flakiness that came down to small errors beginning to show up 
on some older drives.  

I spent countless hours blaming one thing and another before finally 
looking at the hardware.  I tossed four old drives after I learnt some 
of my way around this software.  As a consequence the software I was so 
frustrated with seems to magically have been transformed into 
usefulness on the new drives.. 

Hope this helps someone out

Thanks Bill for a good presentation tonight.
