[clug] RAID-1 would have helped...

Well then there's other points of failure.

RAID is good, but no protection if the entire server gets fried
(unless you pull disk sets from the server on a regular basis
and lock them in a cupboard somewhere).

If bandwidth were cheap enough, I'd love to take a disk set to
a friend's house and then use rsync to duplicate my /home over there.

The demo was a hoot though. All those blinking floppy lights
reminded me of my Amiga 500. :o)

... my friend in Adelaide who had a 120 GB hard disc fail last night.
This drive lived in the family server which everyone stores their data
on. He may have lost his movie collection as a result.

Funny that it happens when I'm talking about how easy software RAID is
;) The first thing I knew about it he was asking about how to
software-RAID up his replacement drive.
