Disk Space, Mr. Rico!

I needed to drop something off to qnofhrt today over lunch, so daisy_knotwise, Katie, Julie, and I hopped in the car and headed off to Fry's. There, I met Ange and handed over the package. Then I headed into the store and bought two 2 TB Hitachi drives for $280 after tax. I had to argue with the checkout clerk briefly, as the sign on the counter and his computer said they were "Limit 1", but the printed ad -- posted on their board with no correction -- said "Limit 2".

I've installed them in my home NAS and the machine is busily setting up the mirror. That will give me 2.5 TB in the NAS, which should handle any reasonable (and several unreasonable) backup chores.
