Long DescriptionFour time Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn (Philadelphia Story, The Lion in the Winter), Oscar winner Paul Scofield (A Man For All Seasons, Quiz Show), Oscar nominee Lee Remick (Days of Wine and Roses) and Joseph Cotten (The Third Man) from the core of A Delicate Balance's miraculous, one-night-only dream cast. Acclaimed British director Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) allows these thoroughbreds to explores and discover the full range of conflict and confrontation in Edward Albee's (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) explosive WASP gothic with both appreciative generosity and masterful control. Agnes (Hepburn), as domineering and sarcastic as her husband Tobias (Scofield) is equivocating and guarded, finds her empty Connecticut nest invaded. First, Claire, Agnes' alcoholic sister (the scene stealingly brilliant Kate Reid), arrives to bitterly spar with her more stable sibling. Then, Agnes and Tobias' luck-less-in-love daughter Julia (Remick) returns home on the heels of yet another failed marriage. But the fuse on this upper middle-class powder keg comes in the form of friends Harry (Cotten) and Edna (Betsy Blair), who appear on the doorstep seeking shelter from an ephemeral emotional cave-in that has left them terrified, for reasons' they can't name, of being alone. Harry and Edna's solace becomes Agnes and Tobias' undoing as two generations raised to need love, not to give it, and how use language to dissect truth and feeling, not to share it, turns first to each other-then against each other. Albee's musically attuned dialogue is showcased with a sensitivity and savagery that Richardsons's intimately filmed visualization focuses on with un-flinching clarity. As each self-blinded character ignores the achingly bared soul of the others, Albee's living-room demolition derby leaves no one intact.

You  may have noticed that we were off line for a while here and there over the past couple days.

We had planned one short outage and posted information about it in advance. But after installing the new RAID system we still had to move all of the data off of the old system over to the new system.

Each time we got data off of one of the hard drives, we had to shut down the system for a short time to physically remove the old drive. We had to do this several times because we had several old drives on the old RAID system and they could only be moved one at a time.

We tried to keep the down time to a minimum but it still took a little longer than expected after the last drive was removed and swapped out. There were a couple unexpted issues relating to that last hard drive.

Fortunately, now with the new RAID in place, we can HOT SWAP drives. This means that when we change out the hard drives we don't have to turn the power off.

We still have a couple internal hard drives that do require a power off if we need to spaw them but it is unlikely we will need to do that unless one dies. The old drives didn't die, we just needed to expand the drive space with larger hard drives so we went to the hot swap system to plan for the future.
