[ibiblio-announce] update on ibiblio's Linux distributions server

The storage array holding most of our Linux distributions crashed hard.
Rather than spend over $600 to resurrect 5 year-old hardware that is out
of warranty and was beginning to show signs of failing prior to last
night, we will be speeding up our migration of the distributions onto our
new Netapp disks.
This means much more space on much more stable hardware, but it will
mean waiting until we hear back on a few small technical questions before
we can create the volume and populate it with data.
We sincerely apologize for this outage, and hope to have the volume
accessible again by tomorrow.
thank you, 919.962.5646 w
