Gross grandstanding

It is gross grand standing, but none the less intriguing and somewhat amusing to watch HP fire bullets into a RAID array as a means of “proof” of their redundancy.

I used to actually use the phrase “if the server were to take a bullet”, but that was mostly because everyone else started getting on me about how the meteorite was getting old. That, and there were some frustrating evenings that made it seem likely that some server was going to be used for target practice in the middle of the night.
