What counts as "high availibilty"? I've had four hours of scheduled
downtime on the OpenBSD boxes this year, and no unscheduled downtime.
That's 99.9% up, without doing anything unusual. (I don't count
filessystem snapshots for backups as unusual.)

    of standing around waiting while members break off and attack one or two 
    at a time.
