Re: Reiserfs (was: feature request)

Losing data on ext3 is a bit odd.  

I have 50 servers running, they have all seen hard power off's.  Once all at the
same time!  I have even powered off machines while in the middle of an fsck and
never lost any daya.  I suspect that you may have had some other issues that led
to the non-recoverable data issue.
