[vox-tech] Hard drive dying?



I was tapping away in OpenOffice.org when all of a sudden X locked up.
I switched over to a VT to see if something was eating CPU or somesuch,
and was presented with a variety of error messages regarding my hard drive!


I just captured a few more from /var/log/syslog:
