The LDS Church is looking for DBA's. You do have to be a Church member in
good standing. A lot of kind people write me, concerned I may be breaking
the law by saying you have to be a Church member. It's legal I promise! :-)

database is ok,  it doesn't necessarily indicate that there are
no bad blocks in the database.

It was a rather interesting topic, it even seemed blogworthy: :)
