It Never Rains But It RAIDs

My 8TB LaCie storage thingy just threw a drive, and I'm heading off on a road trip tomorrow and don't have time to look after it.  It's RAID-5, so nothing is lost yet, but another failure and the whole thing is toast.

Only thing I can do is grab a couple of 3TB USB drives this afternoon and kick off a backup to run while I'm gone and hope for the best.

This is where my fansub collection lives, and I'd be kind of cross if I lost them all.

I was about to order a new PC with 8TB of disk, but haven't had a chance yet, so I'll have to go with the external drives for now.  Wonder if they can be pried out of their little cases later on...

1  I just spent the last couple of days backing up my whole fansub collection. I don't have as much as you do, but it nearly filled a 3TB USB drive.

2 By the way, Avatar's site is spammed up.

4 Speaking of spam, AoS is remarkably unspammed.  Great Job, Mr. Misa!  How'd you do it?

5 I set the Spam switch to Off. surprised ops:

Actually, not entirely sure.  I have a new cleanup program that tracks down spammers and blocks their IPs, but I hadn't expected it to be so effective.
