Symptom: freshly installed farms-rocksslave servers had the partitions in a different place than we expected and the clone-server.sh script was hardwired for /dev/hda5 and /dev/hdb3 Fix: We need to change the clone_server.sh script so it relies on the labels of the partitions as the node is installed, rather than any one hardwired partition.
Cause: This was unavoidable--we had to use the ROCKS default partitioning to save the data on the data disks, and the default partitioning does ext2.
In a Fermi-to-ROCKS conversion, ROCKS wouldn't deal correctly with nodes that had two swap partitions, or with nodes that had more than one partition on any data disk, which all of our nodes of 2003 and later do.

 Gneiss - Art History Online Reference and Guide
Gneiss is a common and widely distributed type of rock formed by high grade regional metamorphic processes from preexisting formations that were originally either igneous or sedimentary rocks.
Gneissic rocks are coarsely laminated and largely recrystallized but do not carry large quantities of micas, chlorite or other platy minerals.
Gneisses that are metamorphosed igneous rocks or their equivalent are termed granite gneisses, diorite gneisses, etc. However, depending on their composition, they may also be called garnet gneiss, biotite gneiss, albite gneiss, etc. Orthogneiss designates a gneiss derived from an igneous rock, and paragneiss is one from a sedimentary rock.

 Rocks by Aerosmith CD
One of the reasons why Aerosmith, after a number of creatively lean years, are still given legendary credence and an eager ear with each new release, Rocks encapsulated the very essence of rock 'n' roll.
Of course hard rock albums in those days always had to end with a whimpy piano ballad written to one of their girlfriends.
I always thought Aerosmith was going to keep along these lines and become a major hard rock band and produce more "Rocks" albums but Tyler abandonded that and turned it into a band that made all sorts of weird chicken noises with idiotic lyrics and rhymes.

 Rolling Stone : The 2004 Rock Rich List
Most rock bands hire a promoter, take a nightly guarantee and then split the profits after the show is done, taking seventy to ninety-five percent of the profits before the promoter gets his share.
His deal was the best in the business: He reportedly received a guarantee of seventy percent of the potential gross -- that is, if every ticket were sold in every corner of the arena.
It's their touring business, of course, that keeps them on the list; in 2003, Phish grossed $36 million from more than 1 million fans.
