Is there some way to accomplish this using openBSD or sigh even FreeBSD
that any of you knows of.
OpenBSD's fsck does not yet support background fsck for Soft Updates,
However, I'm a little shocked at the revelation that you haven't taken
steps to properly shutdown your machines in case of power failure.
Assuming you have UPS units in place that are supported by apcupsd, why
don't you use apcupsd to poweroff the systems when power fails? If you
don't have the supported units, GET THEM. They can be had for cheap.
