The Seagate TeraBit (TeraBit means 1000 Gigabits) External Hard Drive is on sale at Staples for 99.99. The sign says 125.99, but there's an instant coupon that rings up at the register. It's not portable, but for that price, why not? I would never take my archives anywhere, anyway.
some how the adage...
never put all your eggs in one basket (or in our case cake!)
comes to mind.
much prefer smaller amounts in more places w/ CD backup.
