I assume this output is okay?

mysql> repair table accesslog;

Stupid question time: if errors are not verbose, then how will we know 
that they are happening? I log into the site about once a month. If I 
bother to look at 

http://kwlug.org/admin/logs/watchdog

then I see the errors, but unless the site admins can somehow get notified 
when these bad things happen it's almost better if users see the errors 
and report them, no? Many eyes make shallow bugs and all that?
