    The *.dragonflybsd.org domain will be down sporatically tomorrow
    morning, possibly into the early afternoon.  Every machine except
    the already-new Leaf is getting a makeover using drives and equipment
    already present.

    Older test boxes which are still faster then the really old hardware
    e.g. crater is running on, and the recently bought 2TB drives will
    be cycled into production use, and so forth.  The last of the single-cpu
    AMDXP hardware is being removed.  The last RAID-5 setup I had is being
    replaced by a single 2TB drive, and so forth.

    The backup system will also switch from remote NFS mounts and daily
    backups to HAMMER mirroring and continuous (bandwidth-limited) backups,
    and hopefully by next week the offsite backup will be switched to
    continuous HAMMER mirroring as well (verses the weekly bulk mirroring
    it does now).
