kragen.dnaco.net is having hardware problems this morning; with some
luck, the machine will stay on the net today, and no important data will
be corrupted before I have a chance to replace the motherboard tonight.

The kernel keeps telling me it's losing interrupts on hdb (my primary
disk; hda is mounted readonly and rarely accessed), saying there's a
status error, saying "drive is not ready for command", and then saying
"ide0: reset: success". And my first serial port seems to have stopped
working (so I turned off gpm and moved the modem to the second one), and
I'm getting spurious hangups on the second one.
