Long DescriptionBenny Hill fans, rejoice! This mammoth compilation contains almost two hours of songs, skits, and risquéé comedy from the undisputed king of saucy humor. The Benny Hill Show ran for more than 20 years in Britain and proved to be one of that nation's most enduring entertainment exports, tickling funny bones from Honolulu to Helsinki, thanks to its parade of visual gags. Not since the heyday of the silent movies did a comedian achieve such worldwide popularity, proving that when it comes to low comedy there is a universal language. Benny Hill's One Night Video Stand includes all of the classic ingredients, from a ribald poem about Eskimo Nell to a silent version of "The Three Musketeers" to several appearances by Hill's Angels, who appear to have cornered the world supply of hot pants in the late '70s. There's also an unusual sketch with Benny playing a lonely clown, a combination of gentle humor and pathos that pays tribute to the European mime tradition. There will always be viewers who find the blatant sexism of The Benny Hill Show hard to forgive. This compilation is unlikely to change those views, although one fact that emerges after two hours of nonstop skits is how stupid all of the male characters are. Benny Hill turned male insecurity into an enormously successful career, and no matter how much things have changed since his death in 1992, he remains one of the most popular comedians in the world. --Simon Leake

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.
