NP, just some personal perspectives.

Covering smartmontools, and the short/long tests is really the major
value.  You could always mention the other issues as "stuff I haven't
gotten to but you may want to investigate".  I've yet to see a treatment
of smartmontools that goes beyond the basics.

I probably won't be there as I'm in the north bay and haven't made an
SVLUG meeting for, oh, years.  Try to show at PicNix though...
