pihost rocks!

Since over a year I have my machine at a data center with pihost. Today I thought I use fact that it’s Thanksgiving to run some defragmentation on the xfs file system. Which can be a really bad idea if you happen to have a ‘icky’ filesystem: I seem to have painted my machine into a corner. The filesystem is corrupt, and when I try to defragment it it dissapears. When it hits the root partition then the machine still runs, but you have no commands left. The good thing is that I could get the server rebooted within a couple of minutes. It does help tremendously to real support 24/7/365.
