Sure, I'll take it...

Your documentation is welcome, as long as you provide some background info on what you're documenting... perhaps I should blush, but I'm not even sure what an LSI device is, exactly. =) Glad you've found the wiki useful! --Jimbo 08:11, 6 April 2006 (EDT)

Goodness, no reason to blush. I hope this material isn't too obscure. It seemed to me that since your site has search engine presence, the documentation might be found and improved more readily if it were parked here. Thank you for accomodating me - for the good of the community and all that! Ninereasons 14:26, 6 April 2006 (EDT)
I wanted to assure you in passing that, I have no connection whatever with LSI Logic or megarc, other than as a user who found FreeBSD support of these cards a bit scanty. I was frustrated by the fact that it took me a good part of two days to find out what the alarm codes meant, and how to bring a replacement drive online without rebooting. In fact, I thought at first that the alarm was coming from the motherboard, because the drive would not rebuild, and the machine would not boot while the volume was degraded. I was within a hair's breadth of trying to replace the board! So, I'm the one who should blush. Ninereasons 13:33, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

so....what is an LSI?

i don't deal with storage, so i've no idea...

"LSI Logic" is a manufacturer/marketer of consumer product controller chips and storage devices. Ninereasons 13:10, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
