this is a big question.

for my production servers i like to keep things simple and use the generic
binary distribution. and i've been trying to develop a habit of using
freebsd-update. but now i'm very nervous.

unlike the machine that failed, my production systems have hw raid and don't
use gmirror so i suspect the update may go smoothly. i also have a redundant
config so i can take a machine offline to do the update.

nevertheless, this experience has unnerved me.
