Somebody doesn’t quite understand how to configure their spamming software…

USB drive was frozen up this morning. Possibly the unexpected power down yesterday (guys hooking up my gas grill threw the wrong breaker and powered down my office as well as the furnace) reset the hdparm parameter, or it wasn’t an inopportune spin-down that caused the freeze up. Just in case, I removed the pm-tools package to prevent the system from trying to do any power management (I hope).
