input output errors

One of my servers went belly-up. It is always unfortunate when you are confronted with a failing server. If you ever get messages like this, the hard disk on which your Operating System is installed, is probably K.I.A.. In the end I did a hard reset and was greeted with busybox (which was expected). Just wanted to share the kind of ‘weird’ messages you can see when you have I/O errors due to a failing drive (in this case it was a USB stick, not a HDD or SSD).
