There was Vipin Malik's writeup at but 
that doesn't seem to be there any more. He was actually doing powerfail 
testing on JFFS/JFFS2 and making me fix it when it broke, but he also did 
some on CF, and obviously could do nothing when it broke. Software is _so_ 
much nicer.

Charles Manning's rants about bog-roll technology¹ are too vehement to have 
been born from anything but personal experience as well, AFAICT :)
