If you and your parent live long enough, eventually you will both be the same age. 
(c(t))/p(t)
c(t) = Childs age as a function of time = p(t) - b
p(t) = Parents age as a function of time
b = Parents age at birth of child

As t->infinite, p(t) will also approach infinite. As p(t) -> infinite b will become meaningless as b << infinity, so the numerator will effectively just be p(t). At that point we'll have infinite/infinite, which is a ratio of 1:1, meaning you and your parent will be the same age.

If you thought Family Gatherings were awkward before, just imagine how they'll be when you and your parents are immortal.

Making a call for help as my server has died on me. Booting now gives me repeated error messages about "failed command: read fpdma queued'' and the 'initramfs' terminal.

Here's the configuration as far as I can recall is important at the moment.
OS: Ubuntu Server Edition
RAID0 - 3 2TB Hard Drives.
8GB RAM
QuadCore Intel i5
Notable software - Deluge, Apache, BTSync, Subsonic, Samba ftp, ssh

The event:
I was listening to Welcome To Nightvale via a network drive using MediaMonkey, when occasionally Cecil Palmer would loop his lines, and a faint ticking could be heard coming from my server. Similar ticking is common from the nearby mini-fridge so I dismissed it a couple times when stopping the playback and starting it again would cause Nightvale to continue as normal.

After this happened a couple times and I noticed the ticking, I ssh'd in and found that there was an unexplainable amount of RAM usage. about 19mb was free. So I did a 'shutdown -r 0', and after a few minutes found that it hadn't actually shut off. Impatience got the better of me so I went ahead and shut it down., counted to 10, and started it up again. Eventually I connected a monitor and found that it was stuck at the OS selection screen, but selecting ubuntu or recovery only brought up repeated error messages about "failed command: read fpdma queued'' and brought me to the 'initramfs' terminal.

According to the liveCD I booted to it's a GPT partition, and I'm kind of at a stuck space as what to do next. One thing that did keep coming up in 'parted' was that the partition was too big for the hard drive, or something similar.

*I'm going through semester finals right now and probably won't be able to do much about this until the weekend.*

Here's a link to output from requested commands. So far fdisk, gdisk.

You're hitting the edge of my knowledge here +Alan Irwin (so if anyone can correct me please do....), but I would guess that...

The first blocks of the first disc are being read correctly. So the bootloader is being read correctly, and that points to a specific address containing the /boot folder. initramfs (which is then loaded) does some unpacking and loading before device drivers are loaded. If you are running a hardraid, it might be a failure reported by this device driver (to initramfs) which is causing the termination of boot.

Mogwai Monday Anyone?

Yeah, that's a stretch even for me but whilst wandering near and far along the information highway I stumbled upon this and found within me the briefest moment of amusement and while I revelled in this I decided to share this with the rest of you; Because I am a humanitarian and that is what humanitarians do....true story.

I would drive Nintendo into bankruptcy if it meant I could play more games taking place in Termina.
