We would like to thank Thor Lancelot Simon and Tracy Di Marco White
for the long hours they put in across several days while working
to save as much data as possible from when the raid
disks failed. We'd also like to thank their spouses for supporting
them during the evenings and night hours this took up.

We would like to thank Peter Losher of ISC, for spending several
hours purchasing replacement disks and then physically installing
them in the enclosure while Thor and Tracy tested things from a
distance.  We are in particular very grateful for all his help
beyond what we should expect from someone who is not a developer,
but is a great friend to the Project.

We would like to thank John Heasley for his generous lending of
hundreds of gigabytes of disk space network close to,
and his working with Thor to get ftp backed up as much and as
quickly as possible.

We would like to thank Stoned Elipot for letting us use his icb
server while our essential communications mode was down.  It made
things much simpler.  We'd also like to thank Stoned and Tracy for
using their mirrors to verify checksums of data that we could not
easily recreate.

Finally, we would like to thank all the developers for their
continued patience with us during this time of no icb.
