Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

initializing a blank hard disk

I have a blank hard disk - no partitions, no file system, no label, no nothing - that I need to reuse. In a shell script, how do I get it to where I can write data to it again?

I've looked at the man parted page, but I can't tell which command to run, or which sequence of commands.
