drives are fairly fresh as I always install to a new drive so I can get 
stuff off the old one, cmos battery replaced just a few months ago. 
Nothing is complaining. 29days uptime. kmail is using much of a cpu but 
not 100% continuous as I've no doubt it busy rebuilding indice files 
yet. crash at restart after sorting stuff for about a minute. crashed, 
reopened instantly and now I expect it will idle back when the indice 
recreation is finally done. the gkrellm display now looks like a normal 
but busy machine, no big green 100% blocks jumping from core to core.
