To err is human.  To constantly ignore common sense, and screw up a
highly mission-critical service, is not.

Common sense tells us not to pfutz with experimental load-balancing
technology in a mission-critical environment.  Also, common sense tells us
to monitor disk usage carefully, and always have extra storage space on

I wish the InterNIC would spend my $35/year buying storage space, rather
than reminding me that they're the "dot-com people"...
