New backups in Paradise... Well, that was totally painless! The hardest part of bringing up our new backup RAID was ... unpacking it. The damned hard disks were swathed in plastic that my (sharp!) pocket knife had a heck of a time cutting. Other than that, all I did was plug in cables and disks, and OS X led me through the rest of the setup. I'm making a backup right now. What a piece of cake!
